blazinhazen @ Homeworld: Cataclysm

Guest Sep 18 2017
Good day!

Is there a mod that changes the energy cannon visual effect?
They really look ridiculous especially when coming from fighters. Like hundreds of photon torpedos filling the screen.
If not, can somebody point me in the right direction as to how to edit the weapons effects?

I love this game but it becomes so silly looking after the upgrade happens. Like a late season episode of Deep Space 9.
I'd rather they either look like the plasma bombs or just stay looking like bullets but pack the same punch as the energy cannon.

Where do I begin?
Thank you gents

I have some questions about modding Homeworld: Cataclysm.
If anybody could help me edit it so the energy weapons don't look like hundreds of photon torpedoes filling the screen, maybe make them look like plasma bolts or like bullets still, that would be amazing.

I absolutely love Cataclysm but once you upgrade the guns to energy cannons, it looks so ridiculous. Like a late season episode of Deep Space 9.

Not that I dislike DS9, I just really dislike the energy weapons effect. They cut that one out of HW2 and for good reason...

Good evening!

I am not good at making mods. I have to admit I have wasted 4 nights after work trying to extract a .big file... I just am not good at these things.

I would like to commission a modder to make a mod for me.
I merely want the Kushan mothership to be able to move during single player campaign mode in Homeworld 1 Classic.
Nothing more.

I know it's part of the story and so forth, but spare me your speeches. I'm an old guy that played the original when it first released and I absolutely loved it when it came out.
But the bloody ship couldn't move.
Such a beautiful ship, could not even move.
It broke my heart, and I know I'm not the only one.

To me, that was like the Enterpise D not having an impulse drive. How ridiculous

Now, I paid a modder "spoonfrog", bless their heart, $30 to make this very same mod for the HW1 Remastered version and it works perfectly but he doesn't seem to know much about editing the classic version.
The mod he made is amazing.

However I would love to see one made for the Classic version.
I know the Remastered technically has better graphics, but there's something about the original that had a more... Anime feel? I don't know how to explain it but I just love the old graphics. Those were different times.

Anyways, If one of you jolly good modders out there could help me out and build this mod for me, and post it over at the Steam workshop (Not before I reward you of course) well then you get a nice $30 Paypal reward coming your way.

Cheers, and thank you!
