I do modding, I do gaming, I do PC building, I work in retail, wahoo.
I'd like to give it an eight for what we have at present, but the mod promises much and has delivered quite a bit for what it has to work with, and for this, it deserves a nine.
Combat is far different from traditional Total War games with muskets, tanks work pretty good and look promising, and I really can't wait for period naval warfare in the WW1-era.
Looking forward to what may come next, keep up the great work.
The mod is uninspired and unoriginal. The updates created by the mod team are often hollow pictures re-done in Photoshop so the mod can be placed at the top of ModDB listing more often, ahead of many times, better Homeworld 2 mods.
Actual game-play from the mod is heavily bug-filled, textures are low quality, maps often have 'fake resource asteroids' to frustrate gameplay, English translations are pretty much French poorly-translated into Engrish. Most of their maps and materials are cannibalized from other mods(Star Wars Warlords, Star Trek Continuum, Battlestar Galactica), the interface ingame is dark and cluttered, being almost unreadable on the even darker maps contained in the mod.
A single good thing is that the AI attacks and moves aggressively, and seems to know what it's doing, but since so much is taken from other mods, I have to wonder if that's not entirely original work.
Once the novelty of playing with Stargate ships wears off, there's not much left to lift the mod up over its much-better peers such as Star Trek Continuum(and I'm not even a fan of Star Trek), Path to Victory, or even against older mods like Star Wars Warlords.
This is what happens when you try to turn the modding scene into Electronic Arts strategy sessions.
Very interesting mod that probes new areas in Homeworld 2 modding, and seems to faithfully recreate Star Trek battles(not a huge Star Trek fan, and even I liked the mod).
Highly recommended, if only to complete the sci fi collection.
Only downsides are the slowdowns caused by many heavy FX crossing the screen at once, mostly explosions.
Worth a download!
