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!
IMPORTANT: Please read the installation instruction first
1. Extract everything into the DATA folder of your Homeworld 2 game folder. For example, D:\Homeworld2\Data
2. Go to Homeworld2\Bin\Release Folder, right click on Homeworld2.exe and create a shortcut. And be sure your Homeworld 2 is already V1.1!
3. Right click on the shortcut, add " -overridebigfile -hardwarecursor" to the end of the existing line in the Target box. For example, D:\Homeworld2\Bin\Release\Homeworld2.exe -overridebigfile -hardwarecursor(Don't forget to click Apply)
4. You can now play this mod via the new shortcut!
NOTE: If you have the last version of Complex Simple already, just go ahead and replace all the old files.
For advanced players, if you DATA folder is a mess (especially if you have many mods in form of raw files), before copying this mod, just delete all the folders EXCEPT the Animatics folder, and then follow the steps above.
And if you have any trouble installing or playing this mod, just tell me, I'll examine the problem and come up with solutions at first time!
Main Changes from 1.1:
Enhanced AI -- Vaygr CPU players can launch all kinds of frigates spam now, and Hiigaran CPU players are smart enough to rebuild a mothership when the only one is lost (via hyperspace core).
Improved UI -- Some details of user interface have been adjusted. My hope is to make it more friendly.
Something is removed, well, as someone requests.
Unit limit increased -- This is for extreme players like me who would like to have a big fight with CPU. Howerver, I must mention that, be careful when you decide to set the unit capacity to "maximum" while fighting against many players, because this may cause your computer to behave very slowly even crash if your RAM is overloaded...And now you should realize that it is energy that prevents you from having too many ships...
Some Hiigaran destroyers changed again. Don't be surprised if you find yourself can't help laughing at the new Adv.destroyer :) The Orbital Station also has some cool firepower now, but don't worry, it seems that CPU players are not good at using it at all :)
You can save game after death now, although it seems useless. But it's very important for me, because I can save the game after my deliberate death and observe the AI behaviours again and again.
Training Menu and Single Player Mission (which are disabled in the original Complex mod) has been reactivated, but this doesn't mean it will funtion properly...You can think it's just for a better appearance of the main menu :p
