6-PLAYER  MAPS

All 6-player maps are suitable for teamplay.  You can use 2 teams with 3 players on each team, or you can use 3 teams with 2 players on each team.  Alternatively, the map can be played as a free-for-all battle, or for a single player to fight against the computer AI.  It is recommended that you use "fixed" starting positions when playing with these maps.  When you click on one of the links provided at the left-hand side of this page, you will be taken to another page that provides a complete description of the map, along with screenshots.  You can then decide whether or not you want to download the map.

Note: the first 6-player map that I created for Soulstorm is "Battle at Snake River."  The newest 6-player map that I created is "Eldar Maidenworld" version 1.0.

 

 

 

SYSTEM  REQUIREMENTS

Before downloading or installing a map, you may need to pay attention to the size of the map.  If a map is normal or large in size, it should run on your computer with the same system requirements as demanded by the basic "Dawn of War" specifications.  If a map is enormous, however, the system requirements will be more demanding.  I recommend that your computer have a minimum of 4GB of RAM.  I also recommend that you have a video card with at least 1GB of RAM.  If you are operating with Windows XP, the video card that I recommend is the AMD Radeon HD5450 XFX or better.

 

 

 

 

 

MAP  INSTALLATION

In order to play any of the maps, you will need a copy of the computer game, "Dawn of War" along with all of its expansion sets: "Winter Assault," "Dark Crusade," and "Soulstorm."  Some of the maps will not render properly without all of the expansion sets.  Most maps are designed to be used without any mods.  If you want to use mods in the game, I would highly recommend the "Apocalypse Module Version 1.19".

Each of the maps that I offer is stored in a zip file.  Once you download a file, you will need to extract the documents to the following path:

C: Program Files\THQ\Dawn of War Soulstorm\DXP2\Data\Scenarios\MP

The indicated path is based upon the assumption that you installed the game in the default location.  If you installed the game in a different directory, adjust accordingly.  If all the indicated folders do not already exist, create them.

The read-me file can be placed within the same folder to which you extract all your files.  Alternatively, you can move it to a separate folder of your own creation and location.  Each read-me file is saved under a different file name so that the files will never overwrite each other.  It is recommended that you keep the read-me file for future reference, and that you review it before actually playing the mission (especially if the mission is a "Special Scenario").
