Description

It's here at last, what everyone has been waiting for, enjoy it! Remember, if you dont know how to install it, then look in the readme! //EDIT// Do not copy the command line parameters from the readme! The minus in the readme is no real minus but a long dash. This will cause CTD! We recommend to use the Shortcut Setup Tool if you don't get the mod to run.

lets see, how to rate this.. Well i've played the beta allmost the whole day and i've gotta say I'm damned impressed.. it's come a long way since the days where the intrepid was the size of a higaran probe. So far it's a great mod I highly recommend it to anyone with homeworld 2

that being said I would like to see phaser and torpedo ranges pulled in a bit. I was playing the alpha centauri map and noticed i was fireing torpedos while still in the dustcloud.. i'm thinking in later releases they should reduce the ranges by half, that and use the cloak effect hm2 has.. but other then that The mod is progressing nicely, also more build capable ships and carrier class ships would also be nice

still the mod is awesome! i can see it going places

Thanks for the review, the weapon ranges have been a point of contention among the mod team so far, what with ranges of tens of thousands of kilometres being used in "canon" and HW2 conveniently using metres for everything.

Unfortunately the cloak seems to be a victim of the Shader 2 upgrade, if the original shaders are used then it displays as well as it works, but the rest of the visual quality suffers.

What we will be doing is making a low-q verison of the mod at some point, , maybe ill do it in a few weeks when bug reports have started to come in.

whenever i start a game it crashes in the middle of the loading screen
is there no AI or something?
or shall i try a fresh install?

There is an AI, not a very good one but one that works on at least all of the mod team's computers...

Try adding "-windowed" to the shortcut, Homeworld 2 tends to display an error message (if any) only when the windowed function is enabled. It might help diagnose the problem.

No it HW2 starts up but the mod doesn't... it just says regular old HW2.
And this is not the first mod I installed. I'm not sure whats wrong, I checked the spelling and everything, but its still the same.

Not sure what I am doing wrong. Mod will not launch. Game will, but not the mod. Keeps telling me to "insert disk into drive D" The game is in a drive just not "D" thats a camera memory card slot! when I try to change the "path" all I get is an error saying that the path and/or folder is not valid. What do I do? I want to play this mod!!!

Not working for me.
Launches as standard HW2.
Exact command line is:
D:\Games\Homeworld2\Bin\Release\Homeworld2.exe –mod ST-HW20.5.0.big

The path of the .BIG file is:
D:\Games\Homeworld2\Data\ST-HW20.5.0.big

What have i done wrong?

EDIT:
Disregard this,the shortcut i pasted from the readme used the long dash.
May want to fix that on next release :P

Now it is crashing whenever i try to load a skirmish game...

I agree, this mod doesn't work. I have this as my target
"C:\Game Files\Sierra\Homeworld 2\Bin\Release\Homeworld2.exe" -mod ST-HW20.5.0.big
But it doesn't work.
What is the right target please

These mods look great but it would be nice if someone would develope a one click download that would also install.
It would eliminate a lot of headaches.
So much time and effort is put into the development but very poor effort in the final installation follow through.
Seems like all moders are in the same category.
You have to search for the answers. If you miss a . or - or space it screws up.
You also have to research resolution problems.

humm. Ok, from all the videos, absolutely beast mod, however when I try to run it, the game tells me to insert the correct disk? I have my homeworld 2 disk in, i have run other mods before and never has this problem.. i dun get it.. lol. seriously though i would love to play this one, any suggestions as to what to do?

alright, i guess small update. I still have trouble playing the mod, but only on the mod's maps. I am able to play on the base game's maps, and on the deep space map in the mod, but any other and the game either freezes, and crashes, or it tells me to insert the correct disk. However, I have at least gotten to play the mod, and it is more epic than i thought. Granted, I was definitely hoping this one had the romulans in it, I suppose I will have to deal with only klingon and federation for now, not to say that the sovereign is all that bad. Love the texture work, and look forward to a lo-res version, as my video card has trouble and my fps rate drops really low when i am in close view. as long as i am in the tactical view though, it runs well. Only real request i could have to possible improvement is maybe to make it so that the federation base doesnt say "mothership" every time i select it, and maybe some different VOs than what the base game used, like maybe picard speaking when using the sovereign might be cool. other than that, sweet mod and i just wish i could play on the new maps.

Hello, awesome mod. On Windows 7 it runs quite well. Multiplayer crashes almost every time, I've never finished a game on the home LAN. Also, a few things seem unbalanced. For example, The battle cruisers for the Klingon side get produced only slightly more slowly than the the corvette class (or in the case of the Vor'Cha v the Defiant, faster). Here are the build times, costs and rate of Resource Units used per second by the mothership in producing them (Name,RU,s,#RU/s):
Battlecruisers: Vor'Cha,1900,53,35 Nach Gh'rel,2200,60,36 Neg'Vhar,2500,70,35 Maq'mlgh,3000,80,37.5
Frigates: Fek'Hir,800,45,17.7 K'ron,900,48,18.7
Corvettes: K'tinga,600,44,13.6
Fighters: Mok Tal,200,40,5 Klingon Scout,200,20,5
Incomplete, but it shows how the small craft consume resources slowly and get only marginally faster build times. Unfortunately the disparity throws off the strategic balance, especially in the default and high unit cap games. If one player builds nothing but the heaviest battlecruisers they can, and the other player builds an even fleet, then the battlecruiser fleet will win. The even fleet will not be able to produce enough smaller ships in an equal time span to counter the battlecruisers. Takes the fun out of it. Also, a ship 15 times bigger than another only taking 2 times as long to build seems farfetched, even for Star Trek.

Downloaded it, made a shortcut... the game and mod is playing...

But it's super-slower than the other mods, as in it takes 5 seconds just to move your cursor. WHY?
