This is a Warhammer 40k total conversion for OpenXcom, based on an earlier space marine mod by Ryskeliini. As Force Commander for the Imperium of Man on a planet beseiged by Chaos, you must find a way to end the Warp Storm and purge your world!

By Ryskeliini, bulletdesigner, ohartenstein23, and many contributors from the OXC forums


Installation and Update Instructions Video: Youtu.be


Installation:

  • Download and install OpenXcom Extended (OXCE), version 6.3.4 or later, by Meridian and Yankes
  • Run OXCE after copying the UFO files to generate the user/mods folder
  • Download the 40k files, and unzip into the mods folder
  • Run OXCE, go to Options > Mods and select "40k" from the drop-down menu at the top
  • (Optional) If the Music is playing the UFO soundtrack, check Options > Audio > Music Format, and set it to "Auto" or "OGG" if it isn't one of those.
  • (Optional) Turn on the Stat Strings mod under Options > Mods
  • (Optional) Turn on the Chapter Change mod under Mods to change the look of your Space Marines to the Imperial Fists or the Blood Angels Chapters
  • (Optional) Turn on the Cutscenes mod under Mods to get short briefing videos before most missions


As of Version 024, we now have an auxiliary mod with short briefing cutscenes before most missions. To install it:

  • Download the latest 40k_Cutscenes file from below
  • Place either the .zip file or unzip it into your user/mods folder (but don't do both!)
  • Turn it on in you mods menu


Updating:

  • Save any current campaign in the Geoscape. Loading a Battlescape save from a previous version is more likely to cause bugs and crashes, and is not recommended.
  • Remove the previous version's 40k folders from your OXCE mods folder.
  • Download the new version's files and unzip into the mods folder. Your previous saves should be compatible if made during the Geoscape.


Credits:

  • Big props to Ryskeliini for the space marine stuff and Dioxine for the help
  • Used a lot of maps from Terrainpack prior to version 024, so special thanks to Hobbes also so help on side

Tools:

Sprites, sounds, maps, ruleset code etc:

  • All around thanks to everyone, I used lot of stuff from other mods for reference and change it to 40k universe
  • Background images from various internet sources

Is there a way to make sure it is always daytime? Like the always daytime mod that comes with openxcom?
I really don't like the night missions since it is impossible to see the enemies, and I am not good at timing it so the battles aways happen during the day

OH
ohartenstein23 @ohartenstein23

There is, but it'd require a lot of modding work. I recommend using flares, incendiary rounds, or marines in scout armor and turning on night vision mode. The default key is scroll lock, and it can be re-bound through your options menu.

Hi! Getting this error when trying to start the mod:
Error processing 'STR_HEAVY_PLASMA' in manufacture: Manufacturing time must be greater than zero.;
Can you please clarify what could I do wrong?

viilratha @viilratha

I'm getting the same error. Just downloaded it. I tried looking into the mod a little bit but all I see is the file manufacture_IG in the ruleset folder and it doesn't have an entry for STR_HEAVY_PLASMA

CO
covaguido @covaguido

It's in the 40k.rule file, you need to add time values for it and for the plasma pistol and rifle
OXCE 6.2 added - Mod startup check: Manufacturing time must be greater than zero
This is a modified rul file for 40k_023 you can use:
Mediafire.com

Thank you so much! I would have never been able to find that on my own!

Hi, I added ArchLinux support for you mod. Please take a look here:
Aur.archlinux.org

OH
ohartenstein23 @ohartenstein23

Thanks, but I don't think this is really necessary since OXCE is already supported on Arch, and the mod itself doesn't need any modification to run on different operating systems.

OH
ohartenstein23 @ohartenstein23

For the 021 release, OXCE 5.5 is sufficient, the message you may be getting on start-up or activating the 40k mod for not having 5.5.1 can be ignored if you have the latest release of OXCE.

If you want the message to go away, edit the file 40k/metadata.yml to say the required version is 5.5 instead.

I realized the dogfight UFO/ship sprites are missing, because those require custom art made, along with a lot of chaos weapons & tech. I wish I was in a position to supply those arts, but alas, I have to put food on the kitchen table.

OH
ohartenstein23 @ohartenstein23

Which ones are missing? We generally don't release a new UFO or Craft unless we have all the sprites it needs.

RP
mercyRPG @mercyrpg

Amazing mod! I wish all the art were done. :D
