Here is my mod for Retribution. It affects the skirmish and can be downloaded at the following link:http://www.moddb.com/mods/vengeance-of-the-blood-ravens
The aim of the mod is to make the game closer to the lore of the 40k universe as well as to make space marines more akin to how they are displayed in lore books.
This mod has been the continuation of the Dawn of War Destroyer mod with Bloodravage's (author) permission, containing the following:
-Complete remake of races.
-Commanders select sub races in Space marine and Imperial guard faction.
-Space marine sub-races are Adeptus Astartes, Legiones Astartes and Grey Knights.
-Guard subraces are Cadian style Guard, Krieg Death Korps and Tau.
-Lots of additional units like Chaos terminators, Whirlwinds, Vindicators, Leman Russ Demolishers, Hellhounds, Karskin, Krieg Grenadiers, Swooping Hawks, Dark Reapers, Fire Dragons, Legionnaries, Khorne Berzerkers and so on!
The balance is still a bit shaky. Some units are very powerful but expensive, others are very weak but very cheap.
The mod's main purpose is to be more akin to the books and lore, balance is somewhat secondary concern.
-Mod disables Multiplayer auto matchmaking.
-Mod is to be extracted into DOW2 main folder, and run with Astartes.bat
-If you run the game without Astartes.bat, the game should not be effected.
-The mod features ten times as big armies as the vanilla game and may need a better computer to run. 4 player battles can have a thousand units on map.
-Turrets spawn too fast with tyranids and guards.
-Havoc/Devastator autocannons are too powerful.
-You need to run the game with Ultra High texture settings.
