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).

0.5b3: Nearly Here

News 36 comments

Hey folks,

Sorry about the wait, I know we run on extreme Valvetime but we do eventually get things done.

We now have a near-final version of 0.5b3 and we're just about to go into final AI updates and playtesting before release.

I can't say how long that will take, but given how long it is between releases and how little you all hear from us it seemed like something our long-time fans would want to know. :)

And for all the Dawn of War modders still out there, we're following through on our art resource plan. The new version is a dual-mod: art resources in one mod and our code in another. This should mean that for those modders who want to combine our full mod with theirs, they can do that, but you'll also have the option of just combining our models and sound art if you want to write an entirely new mod from the ground up without fear of our mod's code disrupting yours. There are going to be absolutely no excuses for anyone stealing our work now.

Again, I know this has been a long wait for you all but we're almost there.

Мод очень классный на равне со свармом (поправьте, если ошибка). Я знаю многие скажут, что этот дерьмо, мол графика ужас, и сам мод говно. Мод хороший, если вам не нравится, то валите играть в сварм

Но ведь так и есть. Графика говно и сварму нас есть, а этого нет. Так что приходится у него играть.

Почему русское говно такое паршивое? Вот всем все норм, но один русский обязательно должен вонять. Ни один представитель другой нации не вопит и не возмущается, все прекрасно понимают, что моды это бесплатная работа, и никто никому ничего не обязан, и благодарны авторам за их бесплатный труд. И только русский кусок дерьма, считает что ему весь мир что-то обязан, и считает своим чувством долга вонять и гадить как можно больше.

Сварм это выдранные из сплинтер флита и второго довика модельки, с местами ужасно отвратным китбашем в виде тервигона и тираннофекса. Сварм как и второй ДоВ клал на оригинал, и имеет свои вырвиглазные представления о том как работают Тираниды. Вспомнить хотя бы Воино с 5 ядопушками, что в настолке читня и полом, ибо берутся тяжелые пушки одна на весь отряд воинов. Сварм несмотря на свое название совершенно не может в сварм, так как на t3 у тебя уже банально нет места на гаунтов, они тупо не нужны. В то время как в настолке как и в Тиранид Моде подобного нет и близко. Гаунты отрядами по 12 штук, серьезно? И это вы называете свармой? Гаунты по 30 штук бегают в отрядах, их брать меньше зачастую просто нет смысла. Тиранид мод более чем достаточно показывает настоящую сварму, бэковую и сродни настольному оригиналу, чего "Тиранид сварм" никогда не сделает.

Да не воняй. Знаешь чем сварм лучше? Помимо хороших моделей? Его можно скачать, а тиранидов нет. Только версию каменного века которая не работает с другими модами.

What concerns me is that this seems to be stuck in development hell i know your a perfectionist but honestly, we're gunna lap up anything you release and we'd be more than happy to playtest so you can just work on fine tuning it
