Step 1: Mod tools: Go here: Jst-online.net and scroll down to the bottem, then download WinBig. Install it.
Step 2: Unpacking files: Open up winbig, then click open and browse to your homeworld directory. Then click on homeworld.big. Extract all files to your homeworld directory.
Step 3: finding and opening the file: Close winbig and you should see plenty of new files and folders. open P1(pirate 1) and you should see folders, .shp files, .lod files, and one .mad file. Open up mothership.shp with wordpad.
Step 4: altering the file: scroll down until you see the word salvage. You should see two lines, one saying that there are 6 places where salvagers can latch on, and another saying that it takes 99 salvagers latched on to move it. Well, you can't put 6 more than 6 salvagers on it, so change that later part to a number between 1 and 6. You can do this to any ship in the game, in fact. Kadeshi is p2, same file name, bentusi is traders, floatingcity.shp, taiidan is r2, mothership.shp, kushan is r1, mothership.shp

Well, then this "mothership" would "eat" your ship - dock and no launch back, so this feature is pretty useless and dangerous )

Ahh, now I get what you are saying. No, it launches, and it functions properly if the r1 or r2 mothership is captured. The p1 and p2 motherships function as docking bays and resource drop offs, though they can't build.
