The Tyranid Mod is an ongoing additional race modification for the original Dawn of War series, based on the Tyranid army from the Warhammer 40k tabletop game.
Tyranids are an intergalactic predator race which moves in hivefleets from world to world, devouring all living things and natural resources they can; leaving behind nothing but a barren rock, devoid even of atmosphere. Seemingly without individuals, Tyranids have a single hivemind that spans billions of their genetically-engineered combat organisms. Faceless and implacable, the Tyranid race is unrelenting and unstoppable. And their origins remain a complete mystery.
Although now already featured in Dawn of War 2, the Tyranid Mod Team is still hard at work trying to bring the Tyranids to Soulstorm (and if we can, Dark Crusade as well).
It has been a LONG TIME since we last released or updated and I am super sorry for that.
Right now where I am it's the afternoon of Christmas Eve. And in my family, it's a tradition that everyone gets to open one Christmas present at midnight on Christmas Eve, and then the rest get opened the next morning.
Well, it's not going to be exactly midnight... but in about an hour and a half of me writing this (so probably a lot sooner than that for you reading it) 0.5b3 will be releasing.
Let me repeat that:
I am really sorry about everyone having to wait for years and years on this. I have been very sick for most of that time and trying to keep life rolling while needing regular medical care has been pretty difficult.
A major amount of thanks have to go to Miros, our coder extraordinaire, who kept the project rolling forward while I've been out of commission. He and Gambit and Thudmeizer have kept the testing and rebalancing and updating going.
For me, this is a really amazing end to a pretty terrible year, thanks guys.
Instructions will be included when the file is released - including stuff for anyone wanting to do collaborative mod work.
So to everyone who has worked with us, or has wanted to work with us, or has just been waiting on us releasing this... thank you for all your patience and understanding, I wish you a wonderful December festival season and a happy new year.
>>>Remember to expand the installer description for the instructions, they're important as we've done some things you may not expect. ;)
For all our Russian players, a fan of ours - Darkset-SPB - has kindly volunteered their time to create a translation for you!
