The Ultimate Apocalypse mod team proudly presents to the Dawn of War: Soulstorm players and fans, an eagerly awaited and packed with epic content game experience, the Ultimate Apocalypse mod! Imagine a mod featuring massive Warhammer 40,000 battles where all 9 races in Soulstorm (and more!) have a chance at epic victory. A mod where there's no shortage of all new units, buildings, abilities, and even titans! A mod where there's nearly no limits holding you back. It's all about all out, massive war. Wanna nuke your enemies? You can. Gloriously epic titan duels are your thing? Ultimate Apocalypse has you covered. Not only that, but Ultimate Apocalypse is continuously tested to ensure the epic battle experience it delivers remains unique while being completely awesome. Thanks to you (yes, you!) and everyone playing, Ultimate Apocalypse has been steady within the top 20 ranked mods for years.
Greetings folks I've been working the last few days on a tiny useful package for the Atom text editor (Get it here Atom.io), that allows syntax highlighting for the SCAR code used by the DoW engine to script maps and winconditions.
The idea is to take advantage of all the cool stuff that the Atom texteditor provides and make it available to the DoW modding community.
On the picture you can see the comparison between how the code looked previously and how it looks after I applied my Atom package.
My next steps would be to add some sort of autocomplete for the SCAR functions to the package as well as automatic code formatting in order to help anyone to either learn or write custom SCAR code to make amazing new scripted maps and game rules/winconditions!
