UNIFICATION 5.91 - (27/2/2021)

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


LATEST NEWS: The new version IS NOW AVAILABLE!!

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 5.9 Highlights
- ART: All nine Vanilla races got a HUGE art update. In fact... ALL units are updated! Brother Kekoulis is a HERO. Trust me.
- Titans: Each Vanilla race got one "Class I" Titan.
- New Units: Each vanilla race got new units and upgrades! With Necrons getting the most of it.
- 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. I 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 brother asterix120 for the help with the Profiles. Original idea by brother Argonaut. Re-coded from scratch.
- LAST STAND: Still WIP Game Mode. Idea taken from DoW2. You can play with Space Marines, Eldar, Tau, Emperor's Children and Inquisition Daemonhunters as players, and any enemy you like. And MORE maps added, thanks to brother Kasrkin.
- 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 FreUI 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 17 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
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!



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.

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 :)

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

Oh boy, this was a WALL of text! But the actual installation and usage of Unification is very very easy, really.

Is there a music list for the tracks added in to this game? I know most of them but there are a few tracks I've never heard before that are awesome so I'd like to add them to my library

Amazing mod, but I can't finish the Space Marines Stronghold mission (playing as Necrons), because the second main objective is to destroy all the Beacons on the map. One if these Beacons is existing on minimap in objective section, but is just don't exist on the field. There's nothing, but it says to me that I need to destroy someting there

that's one of the point of the mod tbh, but in the recent time they tried to balance out the vanilla/in-game faction, such as adding a titan unit and a anti titan unit on each faction so they can fare with the rest of the modded faction.

so far the most broken one is Emperor's Children because the amount of content that it get from the base mod (Read: from the base mod, not Unification mod) (an advice, if you want to play survival mode while fighting Emperor's Children, tick off the "Heroic Defense" in the game options, you need it to make it easier cuz how powerful they are, or just choose to fight them in the first place)

I've been having a lot of fun with survival mode. However I do have a question. So I just tried a standard with heroic defense fight because just standard is too easy (fighting the World Eaters) and the jump in difficulty is insane.

Like, during Wave 9, I was attacked by 9 Relic units at once. An overwhelmingly difficult fight for me. Now I can visualize an army that could maybe defeat them (if I had built more anti-tank maybe I could have taken them out with heavy casualties) but Wave 10 would logically be even worse.

Is this normal? Are the World Eaters particularly difficult to fight or something (I know there was a warning about the Emperor's Children)? I will not pretend to be the best player or even particularly good at the game honestly but it seems insane to me that survival actually can get harder than this (if I put things on Hard difficulty with heroic defense).

Heroic defence indeed increases the difficulty.
It is meant to give an extra challenge.
However,keep in mind that the softcore and fortress win conditions only benefit you in survival mode,not the enemy.So,you can combine it with the ''easier AI'' win condition to get a boost in heroic survival.

Amazing mod, thank you devs for your work through all this years!
I had a question: I've tried to add Angry Marines mod alongside with Unification but everytime I start a game for them a "Fatal scar error" happens. Can this problem be solved somehow or this mod is not compatible with Unification yet?

The Angry Marines do not have support yet but there are plans to receive official down the line.
