I don't know how HWR works, it's not likely that HW2 mods will work there.

Yes I noticed this, what happend is that the shipyard got destoryed before appearing somehow. It will be fixed in the next version (3.0)
At present, you can try the following things:
1. Don't use your Arsenal Ship to bombard everywhere in that mission before the shipyard arrives
2. Use the Haxor (the green square button above your taskbar) to cheat. Disable enemy ships so they can't destory the shipyard before it exits hyperspace.

If you have difficulty getting through any mission, leave your questions on the homepage, and I'll answer you there

In the next version, you'll be able to reduce unit speed from the skirmish option (it's bugged in this version). Fighters and Corvettes will be stronger too, but not too strong. At present, you can set the health of Fighters and Corvettes to 8X in your skirmish option, if you think they are useless.

That is a fisheries law enforcement drone, designed to monitor the fish population so that it won't get over-exploited.

I REALLY DID IT, AS I EXPLAINED HERE: (MUHAHA~)
Moddb.com

You are all free to study and transplant my codes, just download Complex Simple 2.9 and extract the big file:
Moddb.com
The code for this part is in Data\leveldata\multiplayer\lib\ai.lua, search "function AI_AugmentedSkills()" and you'll find it. It may appear to be pretty complicated (damn complicated, actually, because in my case, I had to use dummy gates instead of normal hyperspace jump for the reason I explained in the link above), but fortunately, I did leave some important sidenotes in the source code, just in case some day some nerds would want to delve into it XD

Just install an English version of HW2 and play this mod. You'll have to learn some English XD

You mean the RAR5 format? Just download a new version of winRAR, it's free.
Or do you mean the big file inside the rar? If this is the case, read the pdf instruction supplied in the rar, it tells you how to install this mod.
If you can't use big file for some reason (e.g. mac), you can extract the big file and use the raw files inside instead.

Those "rectangles" are scaffolds. Use your Slaves to repair them, once they have full health, your Turanic capital ship will be spawned.

I've been busy all the time and don't have much time to play. I have some big ideas for the next version, but those projects are too huge and I don't have time to implement them.

Extracting the big file is easy, but converting the .fda files inside to .mp3 is really complicated. An easier way would be searching those mp3 files online directly, since the titles for most of the soundtracks are given in game.

The Crew Cells can be also upgraded, so you can transport more crew every time.

What starting Honour Point setting and what starting fleet are you using? I'll look into that

These questions are generally explained in the built-in help menu. Ingame, you can click the INFO button (on your taskbar), then view each topic (on the left panel of the INFO menu).

1. When I play Hiigaran, I'll get at least 10 resource collectors and 2 controllers in the beginning. As soon as I get the capital ship module, I'll build a scavenger, from which I'll build more collectors. Harvest modules are important, of course, I need them to unlock the harvesting upgrades. Also, drive system modules are very important, in that they give you speed upgrades for your utility class vessels, so you can have collectors flying at a much faster speed.

2. You need to get higher honour points first, then you can unlock higher military ranks on your crew station. Only then, you can build new barracks on the crew station. To increase crew recuiting, you also need to build crew cells from the crew station.

3. Resource point is based on research value, not quantity.

Does the built-in help menu help?
I'm really curious why you can't beat an Easy AI, can you upload a video on that? I can give you all the guidance you need if I can see how you play your game.

1. Read the PDF manual. You need to scavenge the crates randomly scattered in the map to get those exotic battleships
2. Read the description of the "Mothership Battle Asset" in your build menu. You need to dock not only your Mothership, but also Crew Station, Power Station, Research Station, and Arsenal Ship to the shipyard. Furthermore, you need to have Fleet Admiral rank.

1. Did you use the recommended settings as told by the pdf manual?
2. What is your skirmish settings? (How many players are there? What's the officer/crew limit? What map are you using? What's the starting fleet? etc.)
3. Your hardware is too powerful, it can't be stuttering right from the beginning of the game (the game should be at least very fluent before it goes into the capital ship war phase). If you experience stuttering right from the beginning of the game, send me your Hw2.log and I'll check if something is wrong.

3. Use the "Unit Behaviour" option in skirmish settings to reduce ship speed

Do you mean difficulty level for AI in campaign? There's no difficulty level settings for campaign, because:
1) as the campaign progresses, the AI difficulty level automatically goes from Easy to Expert
2) the AI difficulty can automatically adapt to your fleet strength to some degree

Is your data folder clean (no raw files from other mods)? It's most likely due to interference from other mods you have previously installed.

Everything is real in the screenshots. Those are not trails, they are 2nd Stage Thrusters, which can be unlocked in the research menu after you reach certain ranks.
