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!

Battle Fortress is not supposed to build a carrier. It only summons ships through hyperspace (i.e shipyards and chimera stations)

Hello , this a awesome mod ! but i mis the miningcontainer with the progenitor. And the explosion / battle volume is low comparing the music volume.

With best regards , a fan

The progenitor doesn't have a mine container, because they are already too rich!
The music/fx volume can be adjusted individually in the options manu.

This is a fantastic mod; however, I feel as if the other factions are, well, pretty OP.

Exactly how OP? Please record a gameplay video so we can see whether it's because they are too OP or because you are too weak ;)

>.> The only race that ever gives me too much trouble on standard AI are the raiders. Almost every match I play against them, I lose, but every match I play with them, I win. I think it's pretty messed up when a one frigate is able to take down a fully-healthed destroyed, but the Hiigarians might just be weak in general. xD I play on Standard, so I'm not too much of a nub.

Ah, I see the problem. You can't say a race is OP based on what you feel when playing with standard AI -- it's not because this race is too strong, but because the AI players of other races are being more obedient.

If you really want to know whether a race is OP, you must play against Expert AI players, with AI Augmented Skills set to "Full" and AI Strategy set to "Intelligent". Only then, will you be able to see the full potential of every race that could be unleashed when played properly (i.e. by the Expert AI players).

When you can beat some Expert AI players, come back and tell me whether you still think the raiders are OP. XD
(Spoiler: actually, I think raiders are probably the weakest race in this mod, if you can make it to the later game using raiders against Expert AI players of other races, you'll see what I mean)

Is it just me, or does the strategic battlecruiser sometimes hit itself with its own nukes? Ive had it happen a couple times when it's moving at maximum afterburner speed. (full speed/afterburner researched). And it could just be the fact that im using an intel integrated graphics processor, but whenever a mission or skirmish ends, the game crashes to desktop.

Note: The cruiser-A has a weird attack pattern. Its heaviest guns are faced forwards, but it tends to try to broadside heavier cap ships instead of using the ion turrets. This tends to lead to terrible consequences for the ship when fighting vaygr cruisers.

Great mod, however I've run into a little snag in m08 the movers won't insert the power modules into the three pillars to complete the mission, they dock with the power modules but won't move.

This must work. Did you break the game by playing in any unusual way (for example, destroying the Keeper using brute force, or using the cheat menu to teleport it)? Someone has encountered this before, but it proved to be working when he restarted the mission again.

Hmm, I think my strategic battlecruiser might have blown up the keeper. I'll restart the mission and try again.

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.
