05-02-2010, 01:25 PM
Greetings Mortals! I come to you today to inform you about one of the best, most in depth and visual amazing DOW DC mods around. Enter Firestorm Over Kronus. The mod has been in development for several years now, and unlike most mods out there, FoK wont be dieing, or even slowing down for a long time. DoW40K:FoK is a 'closer to codex' mod. The mod not only radically changes gameplay and refines balance, but also is continually adding new units, upgrades, and abilities. A large and active community has grown up around this mod and we currently have around 900 members at our forums actively contributing ideas and suggestions. here is just a teaser of what we have done :D



The mod has focused on Space Marines, Chaos Space Marines, Tau, Orks, Imperial Guard, Eldar all with new models, texture, balance and more!
The mod also includes Necrons, and BLACK TEMPLARS! all fully functioning, animated and bad ***!
We were recently voted into the top 100 gaming mods for 2008 and were the only DoW mod listed!
Please take a look at what we have done, updates are coming in by the day! 3.5 in not a long wait away and we have a pre-release out in the community already! So come take a look at our moddb page or say hello at our forums, New members are always welcome!

Since it's Firestorm over Kaurava now, does that mean the Sisters faction is being updated FINALLY?

Not really interested unless the answer is yes, and that it is a Sisters faction rather than some douchey "Inquisition" faction. Yes, I'm picky :P but many people have been saying that my faction will be shoved into some crappy megafaction in the Firestorm Over Kaurava part of the mod, and that annoys me due to my complete and utter disinterest in the Inquisition.

IINM you basically pick your "way" at the beginning of the match, so if they do it right you can play it without any inquisitorial options from moment one.

You can always try to lobby your position in the forum.

I did, months ago. They said it was decided and nothing I would say would change it so I stopped, because it'd be pointless. So now I'm just waiting to see if they ****ed it up or got ir right.

Yeah i remember you very well melissia, we still keep the same position, Inquisition race with branches to ordo malleus and ordo hereticus.

FoK 3.6 is the next release which is the last for DC, it's more like a patch that fixes most if not all bugs on 3.5, finished textures and a fully complete Black Templars race.

Yes, I quite well remember your faulty position, Meloo. It's still just as incorrect to the fluff now as it was back then.

Come on, Mel. It could be worse. Look what they did to "Arbites" (so-called) in the French Witch Hunters mod.
Heck, look what they did to basic Battle Sisters!

It could be worse.

More importantly, though, it could be much better.

If I'm gonna reinstall Dawn of War again, and put up with its mediocre graphics and quirky playstyle again, I'd want a good reason to.

BTW our mod team is also working on a modification for DoW II: http://www.moddb.com/mods/dawn-of-wahammer-40k-2-warpstorm-over-aurelia

What have you found is able to be modded in DoW2, and how easily can it be modded?

05-06-2010, 05:54 PM
Well apparently a lot of things can be done in DOW2, Horus and Mirage Knight are the ones in charge of that one.

If you follow the link of Warpstorm over Aurelia, you'll see that Horus has managed to get scratch built models into DOW2 :), also from what i've heard its also possible to recreate the different facing armours on vehicles like on TT.

Well returning to FoK, here is an image of the IG standard bearer :P

That's nothing new actually, it's one of the definint characteristics of the engine. It was in Company of Heroes before DoW2 adapted it to its needs, and it remains this way in DoW2.

It's one of the reasons why I prefer DoW2 over DoW1.
