Long ago, when the word 'Hiigara' rang only as a hollow dream, the kiith of Kharak never imagined they would walk the Path to Victory. But, when they reclaimed their Homeworld and proclaimed themselves 'Hiigaran', they believed they had reached their goal. How wrong they were. 150 years after Hiigaran landfall, conflict rages across the Galaxy... Path to Victory is a multiplayer and skirmish mod for Homeworld 2 that adds new units to both Vaygr and Hiigaran Races as well as enabling the Keepers, Raiders and Kadeshi as playable races.

Alpha 7 Release for Path to victory featuring greatly reworked gameplay and complete races.

Due to the large number of things getting in the way of modding for HW2 I figured we'd be better off releasing this as is rather than waiting longer. I do not know if I will have time for a PTV Beta release however for the moment this should tide you over.

Major changes are:

- Hiigaran Kiiths
- Vaygr Commanders
- Kadeshi Faith Trees
- Keeper tech tree finished
- Raider tech tree finished
- New maps
- More challenging AI

I hope you enjoy Path to Victory and please do provide feedback!

Wow this is a nice surprise! Thanks for the new version mololu, it shows how much you care about the mod and its' followers that you release a new version rather than hold off for something you may/may not have time to complete, better than a LOT of mods out there.

Thanks again =]

It would take me another 3 hours to upload though and I can't leave my PC running any longer. Heat issues =/

I'll upload to filefront tomorrow. If anyone else has the alpha 7 and can upload it somewhere, they are free to do so. Just post the link here.

on a sidenote: the desura version is uploaded and *should* work as soon as it can be authorized.

This is nice. I really love the new Vaygr. Also, I think you should post an update on SWR forum too (since PtV is hosted there as well). I was thinking about posting it there but I hold myself to let you (Mololu) as the project leader do the honor of posting this first.

I want to ask one thing.

I play as the Pirate of the Galaxy (aka Turanic) and when I capture Vaygr Assault Frigate (Warlord faction). I didn't get the Gunslinger unlock. I really wonder why.

That would be because I forgot to code it. The 07 release is very buggy and obviously not quite finished.

Big time fan of Kadesh. Love the mod and mostly the first track that plays when I start a new Kadesh game.
Could you please tell me the name of the track?
It sounds beautiful. Makes me feel like I am right on their Mothership praying to the gardens as we silently glide through the nebula.

why can't I find things? there seems to be some stuff missing in my buildlists.
these are what I've found so far:
vaygr pulse destroyer-MIA <puts a pretty big crimp in the overall vaygr strategy. need this on smaller maps where BCs/DCs aren't cost-effective.
vaygr bombardment frig-where'd it go? this is a real blow, as between this and the pulse desse, the sons of Vay don't have anything short of a BC that can dual with higgy cruisers or turan Enforcers. and it shows, especially on the harder AIs.
Turanic Raider destroyer-MIA <major hurt on that one, turanic AIs get DESTROYED by any other race now
subsystems- fire-control, cloak, HS, etc are all MIA. considering how integral these are in MP, it somewhat surprised me a bit.
also alot of things seem to be missing disableable subsystems, engines, big missile racks, things of that sort.

Mechanis Aug 15 2011, 11:51pm replied:

me and a few friends have been LAN-ing alot, and we noticed the AI for certain races can't handle itself against certain kinds of attacks, because of holes in the fleet. the Turanics, for example, no longer have a 'light' capital ship, and with the two-only limit on
enforcers it's all too easy to draw them off and hit the unprotected Lords.
regarding research- I love the random research, but frigate, or at least capship HS is a must. without one of those, the raiders have real trouble on bigger maps. also, sometimes (usually late-game) only about 1 in 5 frigates notice the HS beacons, making raids damn-near impossible.
and for sajuk's sake put Morgan in something tougher than a frigate! he blows up too easily. (1x torp and 2 flak vs solo morgan= two dead flack figs and one dead morgan, and a torp frig limping home at 20% health. This is the dreaded morgan?)

and the ONLY thing you have to do to trounce the Vaygr AI is pour XUs into cruisers or harbingers and screen 'em with expendable fighters. it really shouldn't be that easy.
other than that, everything else has a good, polished feel to it. though, if the teamcolor areas on the Kadeshi were a bit more present, that would be helpful.

AI and balance was an issue I was supposed to solve once MP support was re-enabled. Never got that far though. None the less, thanks for the feedback.
