The idea of this mod is to allow you to play as any given race from the series and also from other existing mods out there, which was started by chris some years ago, many people have helped the mod get it where it is right now, and there isnt much left to finish up other than bug hunting and possible replacing of ship models. I would like to see this mod make MOTY at some point but i need to focus on stuff that needs to be done. Currently the few remaining teams are being worked on me, right now im focused on cleaning up the mod to make it as friendly and enjoyable as possible which is why i would like people to play test the mod and help me find any potential problems with the mod itself and get them taken care of. Also to determine what needs to be balanced, nerfed, buffed etc is also another role i would like testers to help out with by giving me their opinions, inputs etc. You can contact me here or via my Email HomeworldLegacy@yahoo.com

Xfire.com - Come join the group at xfire.com, this is a site where you can come and play HWU with friends for some intense multi-player battles.


Current downloads of this mod are up on sourceforge.
Sourceforge.net
I update the mod every now and then so be sure to check the sourceforge page for last updated to get the current working variant. In addition i post what changed have been done from the last on a facebook fan site for homeworld 3.
Facebook.com

The only races that arent fully done as of now are Tobari, Bentusi, those 2 teams are in need of more ships in order for them to be fully completed.

Here is the link for the manual - it's also still in progress but should help the first time HWU player: Sourceforge.net

Other information not in the manual:

Not mentioned in the manual is the CPU Attack Priority Option - use this option to add extra difficulty when playing a match, there are five settings our testers have told us that the "More Often" choice is the best for a good hard match. Note: these settings are independent of the standard Easy to Expert choices for difficulty giving the player 15 choices for AI gameplay.

Homeworld2 must be patched to version 1.1 for the mod to work correctly.

Your data folder (usually c:\program files\sierra\homeworld2\data) must not contain a different deathmatch.lua - as it may override the deathmatch.lua that is within the HWU big file.

If you want your badges to display properly on the homeworld 2 teams aka Hiigaran and Vaygr you need to have shadows disabled otherwise they will be displayed as a white box, this is due to shaders being used from HW@ to display their cruiser correctly which seems to be conflicting with ours.

The deathmatch_test game mode can be selected in the options menu, this will allow you to check out some of the more work in progress stuff as well as load the map of HWU's donated but unused ships.

Donated materials and a full list of credits can be viewed in the Credits menu from the main menu in HW2.
Lastly i did create a video tutorial explaining how to set up your in game races correctly so you can avoid desktopping, so here is the link to the video hope it helps out new players.

I am sorry to announce that this mod will be put on hold for a period of time until i am able to sort things out. We recently had a death in the family, we had to put down our beloved cat bandit on march 17th 2015. We tried to save him at first but didnt realize how far gone he really was. We took him to the vet on monday 16th of mar in order to save him when we noticed something was wrong but it was too late. The vet bill for his one night stay was over 500 dollars and we had him put down the next day because he only had a 25 percent chance of recovering, he wasnt eating at all and that was because his liver was failing. He lived a good long life, i had him most of my adult life since i was 15 yrs old, he was always there for me when i needed him. I didnt want to reduce his body to ashes, i wanted to bury him so we got in contact with a group called paws to angels. The bill to bury him was over 600 bucks which i payed half of and my dad covered the other. So i ended up using over half of the money i had saved up for a PC rig that could handle HWRM so i would be able to port over HWU to it. Those plans are now buried for a few months. I cannot update the mod via steam cause my PC cannot handle the tools that GBX released for classic and RM. My sister nicole and I will be picking a spot to bury him over in Lincoln nebraska at a pet cemetery. She will be paying for the headstone and picture we got picked out for his grave site. We plan to have him buried on tuesday march 31st.

It's a pity, really. Something tells me that it'll work with no issues on XP, as well. Hopefully the team will figure out what's necessitating W7/8 users to run it on low textures.

Hiigaran, Vaygr, HW@ Vaygr, Beast, SOmtaaw, TUranic Raiders, Raiders Ascendant, Onslaught teams,HW@ UNH, Progenitor, Kadeshi, PTV Kadeshi, PTV Raiders, BEM, SOT, Derelict Kushan, i feel like im forgetting some but TObari, Bentusi, Kushan and Taiidan dont work Ai wise. Kushan and Taiidan will need some work to figure out how to get them to use research ships after i get that working when i get the time cause im working now so i no longer have times to do anything about this stuff.
