Soulstorm RPG mod for Official Campaign (formerly Soulstorm Tactics)

For: Soulstorm 1.2

Version: 1.1


Description:
-------------------------------------

This mod adds Heroes (experience/level-up) and Auto-Abilities mods to the official Soulstorm single-player campaign missions.

This mod also includes extended camera zoom mod from DowAI projects and incorporates Dawn of Skirmish AI mod.

THIS MOD REQURES Dawn of Skirmish AI 3.0 or above! Please install Dawn of Skirmish mod before installing this mod.

You can download Dawn of Skirmish AI 3.1 mod at http://dawnofwar.filefront.com/file/Dawn_Of_Skirmish;96254


Known issues:

- When you load saved games, unit rank indicator will reset to Regular (1), but the improved stats will remain.

- The following abilities will not be cast automatically: Basilisk's Earthshaker Round, Exorcist's Hunter-Killer Missile, Canoness' Ascension, Missionary's Divine Retribution and Emperor's Touch, and Dark Eldar's Soul Powers.

- Any commander attached to a squad will not level up. They will only level up when not attached to the squad. If you attach a commander to a squad, the commander will LOSE all the experience points she gained.

- Some units, such as Heavy Weapon Team, will change unit rank (level) when deployed.



INSTALLATION (PLEASE READ):
-------------------------------------

First, install Dawn of Skirmish mod v3.0 or above.

Extract "SSRPG11.zip" into your Soulstorm main folder and then choose 'Soulstorm RPG 1.1' in Game Mananger.

Start a new single player campaign and enjoy!

If you have installed previous versions of Soulstorm Tactics or Soulstorm RPG, simply overwrite.

Saved games from previous versions should be compatible as long as they are campaign saves, but however I cannot guarantee complete compatibility. If in doubt, restart the campaign.

If you wish to use mission save games after installing new version of soulstorm RPG mod, please either restart the current battle or complete the mission. The new features will be activated in next battle.
