Bear in mind that we're basically in the dark age of technology right now in terms of modellers and models. Nobody knows the best way to do it and nobody is aware of someone with the skill-set to do it. That means if you can you are a valuable resource!

And there is a lot of appetite in the community to get new content out there. New races. New heroes. New models.

In the event that someone was to come along with the expertise to provide that I am sure financial incentives could be set-up. Contact me, Adila, or Atlas either via PM in the forums or over discord/steam. Even if you can't do it yourself if you know anywhere where we could find people who might be able to do it that would be appreciated.

I can try giving you a hand. I am privy to the secrets of 3d and animation, but do not have that much time on my hands, but if you need anything, drop me a line.

Honestly, if your time is limited, the best service you can do is writing up basic guides on HOW to do stuff. I've been in the background trying to do it with Cope's toolbox and I need to get started doing this on other things too.

But yes, we appreciate your help now and always!

The biggest issue is that there are several pieces of software which are outdated beyond belief and no longer available (cf. 3ds Max 2009/10, Havok Content Tools ver.6_6_0_20090703). I can teach people how to set up the pipeline (which is actually very easy to do), but there is no longer a legal way to obtain two vital pieces of software, and I'm not comfortable rampantly advertising piracy, even if it's about what amounts to abandonware. So there's that.

Foreword, I just made an account here to reply to this, I’m not super involved with dawn of war or the elite mod, I just like to watch the games. In fact I only found out you guys needed modellers from a youtube comment on one of Indrids faction war casts.

I’m an aspiring 3d modeller, taking many high end courses in it, and can make and texture great models. I also own many of the current industry standard programs for 3d modelling.
I don’t know the steps required to get the models into the game though, or what specifications they need. If you need me to learn that though I can and get back to you on it, if you could point me in the right direction.
If all you need is a model, tell me what you need. I’d love to be a part of this really cool mod. I’ve seen my favorite mods for other games die out from lack of support, I don’t want that happening here.

Your help would be much appreciated. One thing to tell you is that you won't need to make new animation frames for units. All elite mod new units burrowed animation frames from retri ones. All you need to do is to know how to change the exterior. Currently the most urgent issue is making of 2 more grey knight heroes.

I'll get in contact with you as soon as I can via PM. I'm just about to start class now but I'm sure we can find a spot for you! I believe we need 3dsmax 2009 and Havok Content Tools based off of Garrick's post. If you got those, it would be a godsend.

I can send Havok Content Tools no problem, that is the least problematic of the two pieces of software.
