Homeworld 2 continues the epic struggle of the Hiigarans and their leader Karan S'jet. Many thought their hardships would end when they returned to Hiigara, yet fate has not been so kind to the Exiles. Now the Hiigarans face a new and bitter enemy, a renegade clan from the eastern fringes of the galaxy, who wield the power of the ancients. Homeworld 2 chronicles the valiant journey of the Mothership and its crew into the oldest regions of the galaxy to confront their new foe and discover the truth behind their exile.

As this groups name suggests our goal is to revive the multiplayer. Stock Homeworld 2 is great but some of the mods out there are absoloutly brilliant! I have taken the liberty to compile a list of the best mods out there. Keep in mind that these are in no particular order and some are still in their development stages.

Homeworld:Complex. This mod is extremely well polished. It adds a whole ton of new things along with an entire new game experience. If your tired of stock Homeworld 2 then this is for you!

Star Trek: Continuum. There are lots of Star Trek mods for Homeworld 2 out there but none as outstanding as this one! Ever wanted to direct giant green cubes or ambush enemys with ships that have cool names? This ones for you! Moddb.com

In the Orbit of God. This mod is still in development stages however it still looks like a promising one.

The Price of Freedom. This mod(According to the developer) is undergoing a radical change as he wasnt satisfied with the most recent version of the mod. One of my personal favorites, this one has been around for quite a while. Moddb.com

R.E.A.R.M. This mod adds alot of new ships and a few new mods while sticking to the classic Homeworld 2 gameplay. Moddb.com

Path to Victory. This mod(If i am correct is in a state of halted development) adds alot of new races and a completly new system to Homeworld 2. Definetly worth a shot to anyone who hasnt tried it!

Last but most definetly not least is Homeworld 2: FX - Commander. This mod has been around for a while and adds a plethora of new things. Although many think it is dead its quite the opposite.

If there are any mods ive missed feel free to post a link to them in the comments section. Thank you for reading and happy hunting! And i know the preview for this article is a pic of Dean Martin, I didnt have anything HW2 related.

Yeah the new TPOF is being slowly built, but I learned a lot from the first game so we should be good this time around.

Thanks for the mention! I hope the mod is everything you hoped for mate!

And as for directing the cubes, you'll have to steal one before directing one :P

I think the older multiplayer mods by Olmys are worth mentioning. Every single one fundamentally changes the way you play the game, and was the inspiration of many of these newer mods that change around how the game plays.
Battle Arena mod- Moddb.com
Capturable Fleets mod- Moddb.com
Dynamic Deathmatch mod- Moddb.com
Territories mod (my favorite)- Moddb.com

And how could you forget PDS- Moddb.com
and TFS- Moddb.com
The original HW2 supermods!!

Mikail's Gameplay Enhanced mod deserves mention: Moddb.com
Since he was the one who most directly influenced the newer mods you've mentioned

I think you need to make the distinction between FX Commander and FX Empires.

And finally I, personally, think the Mothership Warfare mod belongs in this list: Moddb.com

I could mention more mods, but I think the above (in addition to what you've already listed) offer the best examples of the human vs human gameplay that has been created in HW2.
