Dawn of War Rebirth: Codex Edition  v0.9 Beta
---------------------------------------------------------------------

The purpose of this mod is to help make W40K: Dawn of War - Winter Assault a more enjoyable experience by addressing bug and balance concerns and incorporating changes to make the game adhere more to the table top game on which DoW - WA is based. This mod is the product of not just our ideas, but also those belonging to the more active members of the Dawn of War community. 

To install, drag the contents of the zip file to your base Dawn of War Directory and use the ingame mod enabler. If you're updating a previous version of this mod, delete that version's directory before copying over the new files. Please note that Dawn of War: Winter Assault is required to run this mod as well: It will NOT run under regular Dawn of War.

Changes: The changes made in this iteration of Rebirth are so dramatic and extensive that listing them here would be a waste of the reader's time. Alot of changes revolve around giving players more unit choices and tactical options, and adding options to units that previously didn't exist. A guide will be made available in the near future though - but for the meantime, play and enjoy!

Things to keep in mind while playing:

The Mod currently supports multiplayer only: This is intentional as this is purely a multiplayer mod.
This Mod is NOT balanced for use in conjunction with other Mods.
All structures and research will require Power to build, with the exception of structures that mount weapons. Said structures, such as turrets, will also require Requistion as well. 
All units and weapon upgrades require Requisition to build.
Some researches will increase squad and/or unit costs. This is intentional.

Known Issues: 

Rare crash to desktop bug relating to Eldar AI. Currently being worked on.
Placeholder / pink icons for some upgrades and units. This will be resolved at a later date.

Feedback is welcome and highly encouraged. This Mod will only be as good as the feedback that we receive. To discuss the mod and post feedback / bug reports, check out our official forums at http://s13.invisionfree.com/Dawn_of_War_Rebirth/index.php 


If there are features or elements present in this mod that you wish to see officially incorporated into the game, let the Developers at Relic Entertainment know - but if you choose do, please do it in a constructive and polite manner.

This mod was partially based on luas made by Compiler for his Rhinoz Mod. The Rhinoz Mod allows Space Marines players to add several several vehicles to their Dawn of War game :
- Assault Rhino armoured transport with Rampage and Frag Defenders abilities
- Razorback Armoured transport, with a twin Heavy Bolter mount updatable to a twin Lascannon mount or a Multi Melta.
- Vindicator Assault Gun
- Damocles ECM/ECCM tank with sensormap ability

These luas were used with permission from Compiler and the mod itself is available at http://dawnofwar.filefront.com/file/Rhinoz_Mod;43379
or http://spacedragons.free.fr/


Thanks are also extended to the following:

-Giskard for his Space Marine Devastator model.
-Maestrorobertus for allowing the use of the Ork Gun Wagon model and associated files from the Steel Legion Mod.
-Medes and WeAreLegion for their improved Chaos Marine / Havoc and Defiler models and textures. 
-Kjon for his Chaos Land Raider.
-Grimnar42 for helping us get the tooltips system for our custom units set up properly. 
-Excedrin for contributing a custom AI for offline skirmish matches.
-Everyone on The Friendly Players List who's helped test this mod and given us valuable feedback; in particular, Obtuse, Tiresias, Trizzdog, Excedrin, DatonKallandor, Inq, and Meth.
-Everyone on the Relic Forums that's offered ideas, suggestions, criticisms and such. 

Give yourselves a pat on the back folks. You've all helped make this mod what it is.

Sincerely,



-Mirage Knight-
