*************** Thank you for downloading this small mod. This mod triples the amount of vehicles and infantry you can build, and to build more super units.
The Space Marines and Chaos Space Marines's cap research, and Eldar webway gates and ork Waagh! banners has been modified to accomodate the changes to the unit cap.
Scroll down to read the updates in this release.
Although this version of this release doesn't have any races attached, the Imperial Guard thanks to the Cadian Inquisition mod, are added to the CI+AC version. Read the Comment Questions section for details. If you were looking for the Total War: Armageddon version, please check the website for details, as you downloaded the wrong version.

Thanks to Hamish for the heads up for some of these issues. Some of these glitches I do not know how to fix, so please let me know how to fix them!
*************** Common Questions:
Q: Why does your mod crash when the mod loads up?
A: This is because either the mod or the game are the wrong versions. Your best bet is to install all the patches for Dawn of War, and get the latest version of the mod. This is a known Dawn of War glitch.
Q: Why did you remove the Imperial Guard?
A: Simply put, with the official expansion (which will include the Imperial Guard), and at least two other Imperial Guard mods, there is absolutely no reason why I should compete against them. However, I plan to integrate the expansion into the mod at a later date, as soon as it is released, so don't give up on Total War yet! As well, the Cadian Inquision and Armoured Company have signed on, so the Total War: Armageddon mod will be arriving soon with them combined with Total War...
Q: Isn't the game unbalanced with three Orbital Bombardments, 3 Squiggoths...?
A: You have to think about the whole picture. You may get three super units instead of one, but you also get three times the army to go with it. So if you play the mod like you controlling three armies at the same time, there shouldn't be an issue. However, if you focus too much on one aspect, then just like the regular game of Dawn of War, you will probably fail. Think of this mod like 'Team Melee' for Starcraft.
Q: Why isn't the cap higher than 60? There's another mod with 1000 cap...
A: I made it this way for a few reasons. First off, if it gets over 60, the game becomes so archaic that the game loses meaning (like Total Annihilation once you get 500 units for example). Secondly, without the need to upgrade or build cap, a major strategic part of what makes Dawn of War so great is gone. Thirdly, Over 60 cap would kill even the most powerful computer when there are more than two armies. Considering that a 1v1 maxed out while playing on a 1300mhz PC causes some very serious lag, this should be a godsend anyway, because without a limit, it's simply whoever can build the fastest wins, and in that kind of battle, the Orks would most definitely win due to their speed. See my point? :)
Q: Why did you finally plan to re-add the Imperial Guard to your mod? Why the Cadian Inquisition mod?
A: First of all, I added the Cadian Inquisition mod because it was the most complete of the IG mods, and because not everyone will be able to buy or afford Winter Assault, there has to be a 'second best'. Secondly, I re-added the Imperial Guard because the IG is most definitely the big reason why people liked this mod in the first place.
Q: Who created the Cadian Inquisition mod?
Mod Coordinator/PR(ish) - Colonel Lead Coder - Meppa Coder/Webdesign/AI Coder - Ultdrake 3d Artist/ 3d Animator/ Voice Actor - CMRVSUK Voice Actor - Luug 3d Artist - IronFist - TheWhiteRider - Soulja Tester / Concept Artist - Muzza - Lassar - Gaz-1 - Matt
And they have a website here: http://cadinq.dowfiles.com/. PLEASE give all Imperial Guard related compliments and complaints to them instead, as I for the most part had nothing to do with the mod!
Q: Are there any chances of having the _______ race added to your mod?
A: Very likely, but only if either I'm approached or I find it on the web sometime in the next millenia. So don't hesitate to let me know if a good race is shaping up! I'd love to have Tyranids on this mod personally....
I am not responsible for any damages your computer may suffer from installing this mod.
On that note, text files and images aren't likely to do any damage...
- No unit stats (except for build limits) have been changed. The exception is the Lemun Russ. - This mod can be easily deleted by deleting the files that this mod installed.
