The soldiers are always random, since the faction is difficulty not work in battle mode, if you want that result you need to change the battle. cfg your soldiers manually

I have a question, where can I find a reaper autocannon? I cleaned up about 3-4 blackstone fortresses, but I only found a multi-melta.

You need to encounter chaos undivided high rank, so a chaos undivided base, flying fortress, or sideoperations( 2nd mission is highly probable)

New version of the mod is up - you can now play as Primaris Space Marines and deck them out in Salamanders Chapter livery. Download is on our mod.io page!

Good afternoon. I played this mod a few days ago, and I would just like to provide two comments on it

- Regarding Bolters, there does not appear to be any kind of pause after the bullets hit or indicator of where they hit, so it is bit hard to tell if they hit the intended target. In other mods, when a bullet hits something, there is a some kind of sprite/spark that appears after it hits. Would it be alright for you to add a pause and some kind of impact sprite/spark showing to make it easier to see where they hit?

- I noticed that some of the enemies glow blue. Am I correct to assume that these enemies are shielded? If so, then I think it would be better if it showed how much damage was done to the shield.

Hey everyone
I'm having some issues with installation. I've set up all the mod folders and stuff (same as any other mod) but I can't see the main 40k mod in the mod list. All the sub mods are there. I'm sure it's something stupid and easily fixable, does anyone have any idea what I've done wrong?

It´s not on the mod list since it´s a mainmod, you must change basegame

Love the mod, great work, I remember first trying it years ago, just completed a SM game on 029 recently, awesome that youre still adding stuff.

Now trying out Primaris. Are there any update notes? They seem strong at the start since they come with armor and the Assault Bolter is strong, I assume they dont get terminator armor? Do they ever unlock firstborn? I was able to do the reverse and unlock primaris on my firstborn save. Any details on the armor differences after soldier transformations?

Some thoughts on my completed playthrough:
- I was expecting X-COM style linear upgrades but overall most things seem like sidegrades? I went through the game mostly with the Heavy Bolter/Lascannon/Terminator Armor/Drop Pods. Research doesnt have that X-COM feeling of progression. I was excited to unlock all the weapons, armor, vehicles but when I looked at the stats didnt feel the need to use most of it.
- Speaking of research, was a bit confusing, had to refer to the tech tree post a lot
- Master crafted ammo finally has the damage upgrade but it seems really expensive and just went back to the starting heavy bolter ammo
- The advanced crafts had really slow refuel time? 5 instead of 50?
- Is mind control in the mod? Got librarian armor but never got MC
- Base defenses seem to happen even with grav shield and melta def?
- Is melee viable? Seemed very situational but only tried a bit with one Assault terminator/MC Thunder Hammer guy
- Especially love the unit voices

Overall love it, thanks and keep up the great work!

EDIT: More thoughts
- the corpses seem to take up a lot of storage space?
- the honor badge system feels a bit clunky
- liking the detail of the Primaris helmet colors changing with soldier type/rank change
- love all the different factions/races, any thoughts on Deathwatch rules or something that would let you use alien items?
- variety in the weapons is cool but feels like there are so many different patterns of bolters/lasguns/etc that are similar
- does researching all the enemies/corpses/items do anything besides fill out lore? feels bad spending the research time, at least the middle mouse click gives some hints though
- the different chapter recolors are a nice touch

a question in regards of the Above ground Bases,

I see that there are multiple types - each type taking up soo much space that there is no possibility of combining them
(one has a Trade place or a outpost or a training facility) what is somehow unpractical as one has in total a very limited
nr. of Bases.

So I always end up building a Trade place (without it finishing the games is very hard, the possibility to buy raw material is key)
BUT with that I have a base that has no Radar and no runway...so it gets never attacked (not once in like 10x playthroughs)
would it not be more logical to make every above ground base a "Outpost" (with a runway and a radar) and one can additionally
build a 2x2 Trade place or a 2x2 Training facility into it? (beside the Turrets, mine fields, etc.) - so the possibility to have one outpost that
can hold every above ground extra facility.

also then maybe add a Hidra Turret...if the base gets attacked (Let me quest...if I would build the above ground base with the radar then it could get attacked? or my trade place...if Orks would find it then it could get attacked?)

Playing as Arbiters,

the defense munitorum is a mission impossible, look here took my 3x turns yet lost 4x weapon/ammo stacks and for that minus 630
practically all got lost after turn 1...whoever created these missions must have a balance issue as these missions are impossible to get a positive score

Hello,

About research, can we get some clarification, mostly everything :

Some thoughts on my completed playthrough:
- I was expecting X-COM style linear upgrades but overall most things seem like sidegrades? I went through the game mostly with the Heavy Bolter/Lascannon/Terminator Armor/Drop Pods. Research doesnt have that X-COM feeling of progression. I was excited to unlock all the weapons, armor, vehicles but when I looked at the stats didnt feel the need to use most of it.
- Speaking of research, was a bit confusing, had to refer to the tech tree post a lot
- variety in the weapons is cool but feels like there are so many different patterns of bolters/lasguns/etc that are similar
- does researching all the enemies/corpses/items do anything besides fill out lore? feels bad spending the research time, at least the middle mouse click gives some hints though

I’m playing OXCE+Files+Additions, and i’m having a blast, and i’m thinking maybe i’ll play 40k next month when/if i’m done with my current campagn.

Mechanically bases get attacked if the enemy is running a retaliation mission. I commonly build the trade base next to my main base, due to transfer cost and time. This means that the trade base is typically in the same region. As retaliation missions are per region, it is possible that the enemy will target the trade base instead of your main base. This is actually a good thing in my mind as the trade base functionally works as a decoy. In terms of detection an underground base would probably less likely to be detected as detection chance is by number of facilities. I am not sure if a 4x4 facility counts as one or as 16. To my understanding the dirt tiles will ironically increase enemy detection chance.

Terror Missions are typically like that. Negative Score is a bit harsh as the normal terror missions can only be up to -390 negative score.

Gonna answer what I can.

- The initial weapons can carry you pretty much through the game. In my opinion this is needed as you will face Power Armor very soon. The options you research give you better tools at destroying/bypassing armor. But it's totally possible to beat the game with Heavy Bolters and Lascannons alone. One has to check the stats for nerds page to understand the different damage types better.
- Research trees without checking the tech tree is usually confusing. Any ideas as how to solve it?
- Player Mind Control has been removed. There is still some on the IG Psyker Telepath but it's likely not intended.
- Base defense has to crack the HPs of a Flying Fortress, the rest is probability.
- Melee is very viable. Of course you need some fire support but melee is really good in CQB.
- Researching corpses and live bodies is usually for the lore. There are very few research topics that depend on life capture/corpses.
