Life happened, work. See for one thing I'm no longer a university student. But I definitelly want to resume my focus in a month or so when I should have more time. And I'm waiting for how the new Homeworld Gearbox incarnation will turn up, so a small revision is going to be in order as well.

Pouk, the mod seemed to be a little laggy if I play for a long period, even with few ships in the arena... would you mind considering reduce the amount of scripts? To make this mod more low-end friendly? Although my machine can handle most of next-gen games pretty well, it comes laggy with REARM.

Some lag is caused by the ship naming, some by scripts.
There is a game mode called REARM DM Simplified, which drops a lot of these scripts. Use that and inside of it turn ship naming off.

The last month was filled with simply too much work, the next one is going to as well. Just couldn't make that december release. I'm gonna get to it, but not right now, I'm sorry about that.
Hey but I'm sure the HW2 modding is going to be in a spotlight again with Homeworld game digital releases.
