Well, from going from the discription and such below, it has everything you need to know there. Those of you that have played the previous Beta Releases from this project also know the general in's and out's of it.
I've also been told that this version "Beta 4" is the last of the Beta's. Thus, the next release is going to be a full. As it has been in the past, this keeps with an interesting concept and makes playing DoW that little more fun :)
To put it simply, DoW4Ok is meant for those who want to play a Warhammer 40K RTS as opposed to an RTS based on the W40K Universe. The basic idea is that all units and weapon upgrades cost req and buildings, with the exception of HQ’s, Power Gens, and LP’s, cost power. In addtion, weapons like Power Klaws and Lascannons which punch through infantry saves with panache in TT will do exactly that in this mod. Almost everything has been converted over. Toughness / Wounds to HP...armour and invulnerable saves...weapon Strength vaules...even points to req costs. With this system it’s far easier to add in and balance new units and weapons - and every unit feels like it’s worth every point spent on it. By basing stats on a system that is known to work, a far more balanced and rewarding W40k RTS experience has emerged. It returns options that were removed in Winter Assault. It all but eliminates lame spam tactics, early rushing and unit redundancy. It adds polish, depth and balance to Dawn of War that have been missing for some time. For good measure we’ve even added new units and models to the mix to give players even more choices and options. If you’re a fan of the table top game or just a gamer that wants a Warhammer 40,000 experience that will rock your RTS world, then this is definitely the mod you want to play. 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 and will NOT run under regular Dawn of War."
