Background: PDS is THE first and original wartime simulation mod that brings out the flavour of naval warfare in a real time 3D setting. Units, weapons, tactics all based on our present and future concepts of warfighting. If you like watching space operas and reading David Weber, this mod is for you! We might be restarting development (PDS V13) for an even more comprehensive tactical combat experience. A lot of mods out there borrow from us - we don't have a credits list but just ask around.

if your game has stopped working insert game disk, open up control panel go to ada and remove programs (programs & Features in windows vista) then click on homeworld 2 and tell it to repair, it will place all files back to the correct configuration without deleting your user infomation, test to make sure then game is working then try to install the mod again. . .

You're quite mistaken PDS created the ships for itself for others to borrow with/without permission. There isn't a full credits list because it would be a few pages long, period.

I am having some problems installing the mod. I put the data file where it needs to be and thats pretty straight forward but i think my shortcut might not be right.
" D:\ Program Files\ Sierra\ PDSHomeworld2\ Bin\ Release\ Homeworld2.exe " -overridebigfile
also would it make a difference that i had a different mod installed via a .big only copyied my homeworld game to a new folder as the above link shows. would that interfere with a clean mod install?

The problem I have with this mod is that whenever i try to move a capital ship it cancels the order instantly, same with hyperspace and attack. Then it goes off and starts attacking something I dont want it to attack.
