UNIFICATION 6.9.1 - (8/14/2022)

The ultimate race combiner, bugfixer and more.
For both the STEAM and the DVD version of Dawn of War: Soulstorm

An amazing documentary/thorough preview of the mod itself by Poncha:

An excellent video by Caldaris,explaining many of the more complicated mechanics in the mod for anyone having troubles with them still.


Unification 6.9 Highlights
- ART: All nine vanilla races got reworked.
- Titans: Each Vanilla race got one Tier I and one Tier II Titan. Other faction titans accordingly readjusted to the system in place.
- New Units: Each vanilla race got new units and upgrades!
- New Voices: Thanks to brother Thudo and his huge team, you will experience a new level of audio.
- HUGE Campaign updates: Including the option to use Win Conditions in it and ALL the new stuff!
- New Win Conditions: Seamless operation. We have re-coded the whole SCaR folder, with tons of optimizations.
- Outstanding AI: We took the original DoWAI, and expanded even further! You will see additions coded from both me and brother Thudo.
- SURVIVAL: This new Game Mode is fully supported by ALL races. No more restrictions. MANY thanks to Swanky for updating the profiles. Original idea by brother Argonaut. Re-coded from scratch.
- LAST STAND: Fully updated courtesy of Lemon Tree.
- KILL-TEAM: EXPERIMENTAL !!! It is there if you want to see what this is about - a draft implementation of an idea... Just choose a skirmish map, and Space Marines, Eldar, Tau, Emperor's Children and Inquisition Daemonhunters as players. This is an ONE-SQUAD match. Just capture Locations to get resources and reinforce your squad. Original idea by brother ZmajOgnjeniVuk.
ASSAULT: Also experimental. And not updated for now.
- Easter Eggs: Search for them!
Plus many more things, like the tons of fixes of the Bugfix mod, shadows, better camera, the option to remove the Fog from maps, imported FreeUI and Objective Points mods (no need for extra downloads) support for more Mem... No need to say more.

...AND OF COURSE the New Races!!

In this release, the following 20 races are not only supported, THEY ARE INCLUDED!!
Dark Angels
Witch Hunters
Adeptus Mechanicus Explorators
Emperor's Children
Inquisition Daemonhunters
Imperial Fists
Salamanders
Steel Legion
Harlequins
Thousand Sons
Legions of the Damned
Thirteenth Company
Blood Angels
Chaos Daemons
Khrone World Eaters
Black Templars
Tyranids
Death Korps of Krieg
Death Guard
Ynnari
These are the STANDARD races, supported by Unification. And these are for STEAM MP gameplay!
You can of course manually add other races (and expect high levels of support), by hand.

Serious Warning: If you have heart (or any other medical) issues, do NOT play Against the Emperor's Children!!! Their Survival profile is NOT for the faint-hearted!!! You have been warned, we bare no responsibility if you still dare try!


We have a changelog here. 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.

The 6.9.1 patch changelog can be located here.





MAIN SECTION - MOD DESCRIPTION
> Hello brothers. 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.



BUG REPORTING

Whatever issues related to Unification must be reported here.
For issues related to race mods, please post them at the appropriate place - that is, the corresponding race mod's page. You may also report whatever inconsistency, directly to me (PM). Note that most of the races are now led by my team - and for the rest we have EXCELLENT relationships with our coding brothers. So... Everything will be take care of - provided we are still around...

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 :)

As we promised, the patch is here!

https://media.moddb.com/images/articles/1/307/306636/auto/Unification_emblem_6.png


Almost two weeks ago, we had the release of 6.9. And we are very elated to notice not only went very smoothly, but also is being enjoyed so far!
Of course, the journey does not end here, and thanks to the Community's assistance, we have been able to pinpoint several bugs that indeed missed our eyes. While thankfully, compared to last year's hotfix patch were much less and severe, still were annoying to all and had to be fixed.

However, since here is Unification, we do not just stop here. It has been a great opportunity to add some more content. While not as big as the many, it is enough to warrant the upgrade from a ''hotfix'' to a regular patch. Enter Unification Version 6.9.1.

For your consideration, the changelog file is located here.

Links:
Unification Patch 6.9.1 (Installer)
Unification Patch 6.9.1 (Zip Archive)

Please note:
- This is only a patch, not the full version. You still need to have Unification 6.9 installed firstly!!!
- As we experienced many issues with the old ''Unification_Patch'' format, especially at fan made addon creation, and because the vanilla aspect of the mod is still kept regardless if the race sgas are loaded, using the corresponding New Units Win Condition, the Unification_New_Races.module is slowly being phased out. Unification_Bugfix will also now launch the race pack while we recommend to use New_Races for adding semi-supported mods, like the Renegade Guard. Their compatibility should be further increased now until their proper implementation in the race pack.
- For anyone installing the mod anew, the Music addon now is fully optional but we still recommend installing it for the full experience.
- For any technical issues, please head to our tech-support and FAQ channels over our Discord or to our Wikia page.

This week also marked the results of in ModDB's 20th Anniversary In-Universe Excellence and thanks to you, Unification got 3rd place! As a thank you, we have added a long requested unit earlier than anticipated(pictured below). However, we won't reveal how you can activate it. That we leave to you to discover. ;)

Closing, we would like to mention that with the 6.9.1 patch released, the Campaign and updated Unlimited addons will follow suit. So stay tuned for them!
UPDATE: both addons have been released!

Campaign Addon.
Unlimited Addon.

We thank you once again for your enormous ongoing support and enthusiasm and we hope you will further enjoy our hard work! As for our future plans, for now the Dev Team will take some time off to rest and refill our batteries and we will see you again in the Steel Patch!
Have a good rest of summer everyone!

I installed the mod as setup, but what is the difference with manual installation?

Whenever I try to run a game, it says "failed to create dump file" and crashes. Any idea what I could do?

Is there a way to disable certain races from being chosen by the AI? I'm enjoying playing the new races, but would like to exclude a couple as they're prone to cause crashes

Why not just choose the races you want the AI to use yourself?

Nope. If you can play it. It will accessible to be selected randomly.
If these races you speak of include EC, WE, DA or IDH, and/or you're playing 6 or 8player games (AI is a player) you can look at this:

- You are promoted to use more of your defences and artillery as Krieg. Hence why you can have 4 very good Basilisks and 3 main battle tanks as support.

- General Castor was always available as a Last Stand hero. But if you are on our Discord, there is an addon that enables him for all matches.

- Damn. Why would they do that? :( Please stay safe!
