Simplex is a sister mod of Complex. It will bring your gaming experience to a whole new level by showing you for the first time how the gap between the strategic way of thinking in Complex and the tactical one in other mods like Path To Victory can be bridged, unleashing the real potential of both Complex and PTV, and of course, the Homeworld 2 engine itself!

You released 1.8 just a week ago and now there is a version with two new races?
Amazing!

I have a small question. Does the 2.0 version still need the bug fix for 1.9? or can i delete the ship file from the homeworld2/data folder as well as the .big file to replace with the new one?

That bug has been fixed in 2.0, so you don't need that ship file anymore. This big file alone will work just fine. And don't forget to check the target line of your shortcut, " -overridebigfile" is also no longer needed.

No ETA, I don't take making mod as a task, because technically I'm still a player, I just release my playthings when I feel good :D

Right, I just installed it, and I can say it's very fun. Great to be able to play two more races in a Complex way.

But I'm a bit worried about the balance. It seems that the new Turanic and Kadeshi units weren't re-balanced to fit in the Complex Simple gameplay... A speed of 600 for Turanic fighters and Corvettes seems a little exaggerated, so are the Turanic frigates armor and cost. No offense, but it looks like you imported the units straight from PTV, added a few ones and finalized the mod without worrying about tweaking the stats to make the whole thing more coherent.

I think it could use some more polishing.
Great job nonetheless.

In my opinion, the standard of balance should be that AI players can hardly kill each other. Whereas Hiigaran and Vaygr have so many powerful ships and weapons, the only way at present to make the two new races not too much handicapped is giving exaggerated strength to their units like you said. But anyway I also have the concern as you said above, I will test it more and do more tweak to make these two new races look like Hiigaran and Vaygr more.

Cool. I think a good way to make the new races more "Complex" would be to make their gameplay more progressive. Like for the Turanics, in Path to Victory, the player has to capture enemy ships to unlock some of his own. It's just an example on how to make the races more consistent and interesting.

I also noted a few bugs: Turanic Raiders capital ships seem impossible to hit with Ion cannons. I tried attacking some with Ion Destroyers and Ion Cannon Frigates and their attacks kept missing (they have no problems hitting other capital ships).

hello siliconworm
i'm download ur mod Homeworld 2 Complex Simple 2.0

still got something not right
- description battle ark is not showing
- sperm corvette the missile lauch is killing the corvette cause the speed corvette is fast than missile so sometime lauching missile is hitting the ship
- spy ship can't use it after build and lauch crashing each other
- just knew from ai playing turanic raider the ship scaffold can build by slave.. i thought it was fail when i saw it

that's the one i know but don't about other
btw i like ur music store in special song but can't load it only can wait to show up in random
this is a great mod... cool and awesome
thank's u for ur sharing ur mod :)

the description of battle ark can display on my computer, I don't know why yours is not showing
the missile of sperm corvette can't go faster, otherwise it will lose the visual effect of sperm XD
I can't find any problem with Spy, what do you mean of crashing each other?
Turanic Raiders AI can build scaffold, if it fails to build the scaffold with a Slave, don't worry, the Scaffold will recover itself very slowly

About music, the special tracks will be played only after 11 game years. And you can skip to next song any time by pressing F9 key

Hi! I have a problem with every mod you uploaded :( I downloaded it and extracted it but I cannot start any of them because it just throws back to the desktop :( I had one of your releases on my pc (I'm not sure which one) but I can't launch any of them now :(

Did you install it correctly according to my instructions? And did you set the races correctly?

It's working! :D sorry to bother you but still I want to ask you something... Now I played a match with Hiigarians aganist Turanic Raiders and the Raiders swarmed all over before I could even build a flak frigate... Is it an unbalanced fight between the two factions or I was an amateur?

That's why it's called Raider :P
You need to develop some fast response tactics like interceptors at the beginning

1. Make sure your patch is already 1.1 and you did everything right according to the installation instructions

2. After crash, immediately go to Bin/Release folder and open Hw2.log in NotePad, copy everything inside and send to me via private message.
