This mod was never dead, just in the webway slumbering! This is the original Harlequins Race mod for Dawn of War which has been handed down to a new team to complete. This is a mod for Dawn of War: Soulstorm which adds a new playable race to skirmish and multiplayer.
The Dance Macabre Modification adds the Harlequins as a new playable race to your Dawn of War: Soulstorm 1.20 game. The Harlequins are a mysterious faction of the Eldar race who combine war with theater in their eternal quest to purge chaos and keep safe the webways.
CHANGES from previous Beta Version
There is MUCH NEW CONTENT and many design changes, so there is no point in describing them in detail :)
just load it and play it, and enjoy it!!!
Know Issues (that we will not address....)
1] TEXTURES: a) We are missing complete texturing for buildings b) And the heads of DJs.
3] AE: Structures' build volumes are now very big. It is OK for so that vehicles CAN pass through. But perhaps we have to reconsider, should any of you find it too much.
> This mod has a long history, starting right back with winter assault. The mod was left abandoned and the assets public released, however it was then revived by a new team who have taken it further towards completion.
> That team that took over (after the initial founders of the mod) and it was very small, consisting of Undirector and fuggles working on the code and with two testers. Brother Jones1979 kindly helped out on more than one occasion - but lackigng any dedicated 3D/OE/FX support, sadly held the mod back from being completely polished.
> And then (now!) the same team (Thudo's team) with the involvement of more NEW members kicked it!! So we took what was, and expanded and fixed it as much as we could. We hope you like the final version.
