This mod aims at modifying Dawn of War 2 Retribution to portray combat in a more lore-accurate manner. Prepare to find Space Marines as powerful as the books depict them, ork hordes in their hundreds, and dozens of Guard tanks shelling into an incoming tyranid horde!

Description

1.7 full release Install the mod into your main Dow II retribution folder. Readme file included with Credits and instructions. Run either with Astartes.bat, or go to your Steam, go to Retribution, go to Properties, set launch options as "-modname Astartes" ,without the ""s. I recommend setting graphics to Ultra high before installing or mod may crash on space marines. Races , tactics, and units: Space marines heroes all have a separate race attached. Chapter commander is Adeptus Astartes, unlocking the contemporary 40k Space marines. Legion commander is Legiones Astartes, unlocking the 30k era late Great Crusade Space marines. Grey Knights commander is Daemonhunters, unlocking the Grey Knights. IG heroes are the same: Cadian commander unlocks the standard IG. Krieg commander unlocks the Krieg IG. Not suppressible, but fire slower if more powefully with their lasguns. Tau commander: Tau race, similar a bit to IG. Very weak in melee, but good at range with plasma weapons.

You would need to extract Astartesattrib.sga and edit them with the mod tools then recompile it again.

Hello. Thank you very much for your hard work and a great mod.
Tell me, please, why I do not see the squad of units named "Deathwatch kill team" (from the Grey Knights of Spacemarines)?
And I see very black textures for some soldiers in some squads of Spacemarines, -on the screenshots of the author these textures are much more beautiful, but I have these textures are not very beautiful, very much black. What do I need to change so that the textures are also displayed beautifully?

You have to build the Teleporter Homer, the building the scouts can construct. it acts as a secondary base building and it can also recruit terminators and heroes.

Same case with Chaos shrines for the most part.

Since my mod was based on Destroyer, you need to start my mod with Astartes.bat or use the steam properties launcher.

Issues with installation, keeps crashing despite installing both as a straight file and integrating each piece into their correct place.

You need to unpack the mod the first, than repack it every time you edit something.

You need these files:
DK - SGA Archive GUI 1.4.1.0-FIX (This needs to be FIX! version) to pack it.
SgaReader2_150209 to unpack it.

I can't make new models but I'm afraid that Bloodravage did not finish his necron pack. Same for DE that have two units made.

Could you make a mod which simply replaces all the space marine models from Dow2 retribution with the legion heresy-era ones in this mod? I tried doing it myself but hit a dead end because I don't know how to edit .rbf files (cope's mod tool didn't work for me).
