Hi everyone! In one word, I am a n00b. I don't know how to modify anything except txt, even though I've been playing Homeworld series for so many years...Homeworld 2 is the summit of this series and I love it very much, I've been dreaming to have my own mod for Homeworld 2. However, I am a n00b. A n00b is someone who doesn't know anything about extracting big files or editing models in Maya, or everything else told by other modders which trully puzzled me. I actually thought that maybe there would never be my own mod for Homeworld 2.
Then, many years later, a mod gave me a hope. I downloaded Homeworld 2 Complex 8 beta 0.9, and found it completely decompiled and could be edited in NotePad... I was so excited that I couldn't wait to edit it in my own way.
So, regarding my first attempt to create a mod for Homeworld 2, don't be surprised if you find me ruin the epic Complex mod, which could be the best Homeworld 2 mod ever... (As a n00b, I've played almost every Homeworld 2 mod listed on ModDB.) Just regard this as a n00b's practice (with NotePad), and this is the story of a n00b...
Finally, give all my sincere thanks to the Complex team, maybe I would never know how Homeworld 2 works if I hadn't met this mod, let alone modifying it by myself. For the reason that I must type a name for my mod on ModDB, I decided to call it SIMPLE, because my works are too simple comparing to the source code of COMPLEX...

NOTE: This mod has been permitted by the Complex team! That means I'll keep studying and make this mod better, and sure you can download and play it! Thank Beghins and Baroness1 for their kindness and enthusiasm, thank the Complex team again! You can visit the Complex program at www.homeworld2complex.com and www.Complex.mastertopforum.com

For a long list of all the other contributors I also want to give great thanks to, click here

As a beginner in modding Homeworld 2, I sincerely appreciate all your work; As a player, I feel an even stronger compulsion to thank you for your contribution to the Homeworld game, because it is you who are keeping this game alive, and that's the greatest gift you can give to all the Homeworld lovers like me! Thank you! Thank all of you!

The bentus big ship, from which I wanted to make a space casino :P
But I still haven't decided yet. My idea is, when you move a production capital ship to that ship, the gamble begins, you can choose how many RUs you want to gamble with it, whatsoever, you will end up with losing all your RUs XD
Is this a good idea? If so, I will really make one in the future

Could someone please tell me where the texture files are located? There's no texture folder and I don't see textures in any of the ship folders?

妖都mod在安装和主界面上有明确的文字说明,禁止拆包和使用她的模型。
你最好考虑一下这个问题,免的到时候闹的不愉快。

Is this a threat? There're tons of argues in the discussion of this mod, but I haven't talked my opinion about modding so far, now you're the first one whom I'd like to talk to.

If you don't want anybody to extract your BIG file, then why did you upload it on the Internet? I respect your work, that's why I credited this mod, but I don't think it is you who can lay down other people's obligations and prescribe what they should obey -- nobody can. Needless to say a mod has nothing to do with commercial benefits, copyrights or anything involves constitution, at least not on ModDB. In fact, I think you are over-reacted, I wouldn't claim it's a "fault" even if someone extracted and used my mod without my permission, because I uploaded it to the mod sharing community on the goddamn Internet in the first place! It is you who uploaded the stuff, so it would be you who knew what it could lead to and who should be responsible for your own decision. Since you've made the decision to upload it, you cannot accuse anybody for extracting or using you mod.

Repeat again, I respect you and your works, but I'm not obliged to change anything by anybody's oder or threat. We both make and made decisions ourselves.

So you think that when someone lets you use a mod they made for personal use with explicit warning that you cannot use in your own mod without permission that you can then unpack and use things from that mod whether they give you permission or not?

发布并不代表使用权共享。开源和免费是两个概念。
虽然在中国盗版横行,保护意识低下。
不过在我们的mod圈子里我们恪守一些基本的理念。
“拿来主意”确实很方便,当大家都开始拿的时候,真正的创造者就会自然而然的消失。
当最后没东西可拿的时候,也就是这个圈子死亡的时候。

我并没有指责你的意思,因为我只是个旁观者。
我相信我们是在平常的气氛中交换mod制作上的理念。
正如你所说的,口头上的东西不会影响任何人的任何行为。
我们都遵从自己的准则行事。
你选择为作者留名而不在乎作者的意愿。
我倾向于充分尊重作者的意愿,他/她们有各自充分愿意或不愿意共享使用的理由。
毕竟他/她们是原始创造者,如果没有他/她们就什么都没有了。

另外,如果你不喜欢在这个话题上继续的话,我们可以到此为止。
你也可以删除这一整条的回复。
这些事可以说重要也可以说不重要,但对将来的发展没有什么影响。

This is an awesome mod, specially when all you want is to overkill your enemies with DAKKA and Overpower lol. No really, i like this mod, i love the intensified number of weapons in every ship, however i dont like mods that focus on blowing up everything to the hell using as main feature Overpowered ships and weapons. Since i'm a strategy and tactics lover and i like much more when the battles are prolongued and my units suvirvability depends of the orders that i give them and not by the number…

The Graphics or this mod are great to look at but when it comes to playing it feels like just a giant troll, with crazy lag, ships "swimming in space and large capital ships moving faster then the small interceptor class ships. If the game breaking lag and troll effects like the "fishes" when taken out or worked on the mod could reach a 5 in my book.
