We have our changelogs posted on our Wikia. B
are in mind, we have changed and added so many, it was hard to keep track of. So, is best to have a look in game for yourself!




MAIN SECTION - MOD DESCRIPTION
> Greetings everyone! This is going to be the place where we will be developing the Unification Mod for the Dawn of War SoulStorm game, along with the Race Mods. Unification at its core, is an advanced combiner mod that allows you to seamlessly combine almost all community-created races. Make no mistake, this is the ABSOLUTE way to combine races. SCaR, AI, audio, winconditions, rules and all other aspects of the game need CAREFUL treatment, and I have already done the job.
> With the new version, it got even further. From 5.9 and beyond, it is also an ART REVAMP mod. All nine vanilla races are re-modelled to match higher visual standards.
> So this place will also be a "hub" for most race mods as well. You see, my team leads most of the race mods, so whenever we update one, a Unification note will also be posted.


IMPORTANT NOTES

This version works both with the STEAM and the DVD version of the SoulStorm game. Please, have your game updated to the latest patch version, for maximum efficiency.
Important: Your PROFILE name, MUST NOT end with a [Space] and a Numerical. Which means that names like "Uber 1" or "Superman 3" or "John 7" or "Computer 5" will cause issues!!!

I get out-of-memory errors,what do I do?
- Enable LAA. - In your local.ini(inside your Soulstorm folder),have the fullres_teamcolour=0.
- For bigger games,have the persistent scarring and bodies to low or off.
If the issue persists on your system,try 6p maps instead of full 8p.This is a memory limit of the engine itself,as it is a 32-bit application.
- To gain gain some more free Memory, just leave the AI MapDB wincondition, DISABLED.

4.)I have frame drop issues when I move my mouse and is flickering.
This is a bug caused by a Nvidia drivers update. 1.) Head to your Soulstorm folder and open a file entitled 'local.ini'. Look for a line that says 'screennovsync=0' and change the '0' to a '1'.
2.) Again, in your Soulstorm folder, enter the 'Drivers' folder and open a .txt file named 'spdx9_config'. Look for a line that says 'allowhwcursor 1' and change the '1' to a '0'.
3.) Test out your game. If your game is not running perfectly and you are using a NVIDIA GPU, roll your driver back to at least 457.41. Some people are experiencing issues with the 460+ drivers when it comes to playing older games.

UNIFICATION UNLIMITED(NO CAPS) ADDON HERE.

UNIFICATION CAMPAIGN ADDON HERE.

REQUIREMENTS
- The game - either the DVD or Steam version (obviously!). Dawn of War is VERY cheap nowadays, so there is no excuse for not having it :) Remember that you must have the DoW game and all expansions (WA,DC,SS) to play with all 9 core races! (Note that to play on-line, you will need the Steam version.)
- A capable machine. 3 Ghz CPU / 4 GB Sys mem / 2 GB Vid mem would allow you to play the game at almost full settings. The most important part is the memory. I would say, 6 Gbs + is a must.

Please note if the exe of the Campaign Configurator is marked as a virus,it is a false positive.However,if you still do not trust it,you are free to delete it,especially if you do not care much about the campaign.This is also one of the reason we allow for manual installation,in case people do not trust the installer for whatever reason.


DON'T FORGET: The DoW game series is a marvel given to us by Relic/Sega and and the WH40k universe is the outstanding creation of Games Workshop - a work of true art, if you ask me. There are countless souls in these companies (I hope I mentioned them all!) that have worked hard to provide us with this outstanding sci-fi experience. A big THANKS goes to them, and (needless to say) full credits are rightfully their own.

For your consideration, a full credits list is located here.

As you can guess from the title, we are pleased to announce that 7.0 is finally released!
Against all odds and difficulties, we have persevered and overcome any obstacles. Something we would never achieve without your continuous support!
There are no words to describe this moment and emotions we feel right now, aside that we wish from the deepest of our hearts that you will enjoy our work as much as we did making it!

Some helpful general advice before we move to the download link:
- If you are doing a clean installation of Soulstorm through Steam, please make sure LAA is enabled successfully. Steam has a tendency to disable it. If yes, do a restart of your PC and either enable through the Mod Manager anew or manually using the NTCore Patch.

- When launching a first match with the new version, there is a chance you will get a CTD at the start of the loading process. That is normal. The game profile still wants to load the SCAR files from the old version. A simple restart of the game(not the PC) will fix this and the game will load fine.

- Thanks to optimizations in packaging and ModDB raising the upload cap, we can have one single archive required only to be downloaded. In addition, the Unification_Bugfix and Unification_Bugfix_New_Races module files are discontinued as all semi-supported race mods are now complete and in. The mod is now called simply Unification.

- Do not use the Discord App when playing Dawn of War in genera.
As you may have read before, we have done many tests and confirmed that the Discord App messes with the DirectX9 DOW uses as it injects itself for the Overlay.
That has as a result to mess up the memory usage of the game and result in many RAM crashes. Disabling the app has showed a huge increased in stability.
Using the Browser is safe.
That is a bug with Discord itself that Discord does not bother to fix because old dlls. This is the same reason why you may get corrupted menus in the campaign which are only fixed if you close the app.

- Our tests have been very positive so far but as always, the public is the true stress test. Should there be any major bug that we have missed, like the last times, we will observe and release a Hotfix as soon as possible should it be needed.

- Regarding the addons, like the Campaign Addon and the Unlimited Addon. These will be uploaded in the coming days following the release. We will inform you on our Discord server and edit this article to include them when up. Likewise for fan made addons that we host on our server, there will be announcements by their creators once their updates are up. So keep an eye for them.

- Mirrors as usually are available on the first post of our FAQ. They will be updated in the coming days.

- Lastly, our Wikia will slowly update itself to the new information. As is a momentous work, please hang in tight until the job is complete.

DOWNLOADS:

Installer exe.

Main Package.

INSTALLATION:

Instructions for using the installer:

- Download the Unification package and the Unification Installer. Thanks to optimizations in packaging and ModDB raising the upload cap, we can have one single archive required only to be downloaded.

- Have the archive file in the same location(usually,it should be your default downloads folder) with where the installer is.

- Run the Installer exe and follow the instructions on screen. (Please mind the installer also counts as an uninstaller for any old version of Unification and the race mods as well as allows for installing the DOW Mod Launcher.)

- Enjoy!

Instructions for manual installation (intended for Mac and Linux OS users as well as for whoever does not wish to use or can't for whatever reason use the installer):

- Manually delete any old version of Unification and race mods that you may have installed.

- Only download the Unification package.

- Unzip it directly inside your Dawn of War Soulstorm directory.

- Download the Mod Launcher from the downloads section here and paste inside your Soulstorm folder.

- Make a shortcut of the Unification Campaign Configurator which is inside the extracted Unification folder.

- Copy the Movies folder from the DXP2 folder inside the Unification folder if you wish cutscenes in the campaign to be played(the installer copies them automatically).

- Enjoy!

I still get skin batch error even on 4 player maps. The game is literally unplayable, all of the units and buildings are glitching, or disappearing.

Skin Batch error is a generic error displayed by the steam version (and maybe the GOG version too, unsure on that one). It's not related to your issue in the slightest.

Your issue needs a reinstall of Visual Basic, either via steams Verify Integrity, or via the microsoft website.

The skinbatch error indeed is a leftover from Iron Lore's debugging sessions. Means nothing.
Your issue however is related to Visual Basic. Essentially, you do what Caldaris is advising above. Either refresh your Soulstorm installation or manually repair Visual Basic through Microsoft's page.

More than the tyranid cinematic this is the Space Hulk cinematic, like a comment on reddit by a person who is in contact with you told to me. Anyway, I'm currently watching Ultraman Dyna, I stress again that I suggest putting toku skins for this mod. There's an episode where the Omnissiah Ultraman Dyna fights a giant necron overlord on the moon who could be the void dragon for all I know. It would be p-e-r-f-e-c-t-i-o-n.
