I am mildly surprised the Taiidan Republic (what became of HW1's resistance) isn't the Hiigarans' supporting mini-race. I mean, they took down an empire together.

Yeah they should be. I'd need Taiidan looking ships that aren't just old HW1 Taiidans in HD, that are different enough, yet sharing some distinctive features with 115 old Taiidans (even if the feature is nothing but their typical "weirdness", being so ugly they're beutiful, Taiidans are a bit like that). You know, looking different, feeling the same.

I was very much looking forward to making them, I really wanted, but then I realised I'd never finished anything if my spread was that wide, I had to sacrifice that idea and focus only on Hiigaran and Vaygr to get anywhere. But even then the real life struck and I don't have much time even for that.

So basically someone else would have to make them. If for example HW@ team had Taiidans, that would be amazing and I know they would have done an excellent job with that, their Kushan are beautiful and different. Too bad they don't have Taiidans.

Well unless I'll get a hold of some placeholder Taiidans. The HW1 Taiidans.
I would definitelly dissagree with what shape they're in after such a long time gap between the first game and Homeworld 2, but maybe it's better than nothing at all?

I'm not sure if the Taiidan Republic mod (which has been dead for ages) had a resource release at any time.

If it did you might want to check that one out. Their ships look a little different from the Taiidani vessels encountered during the Homeworld War, but are still quite similar.

That one has sandly disintegrated in time. But HWU has some slightly unorthodox Taiidani model, I don't know where they're from, but they should be free to use with permission.

Those 2 are ships you are talking about pouk are Enterprise E ships that he modeled for Requiem War and those 2 cruisers are all that is left the Requiem. However i cannot give permission for their use at least as far as they being released in another mod for public download, now you can use them for private stuff. But if you want them in a mod for download you need Enterprise's E's permission and you can find him on deviantart.

On a totally different note, you are aware that capturing a Lanceship is all but impossible, right?

It is still capable of launching missiles at attached frigates. Given the damage output of these things even a full-sized complement of resource collectors on repair is not going to do much good.

Yeah you're not going to like my answer, but I've put anything Kadeshi on hold. I don't even plan to make them playable until (or unless) they are on a satisfactory level. They were a time sink, a weight, I needed to cut the spread down to even get anywhere.

Are you lacking a high concept for the race? If so, I could write something up.

If not, I suppose you mean you're too busy tweaking the Vaygr and finishing the Hiigaran vessels?

The latter one. So if you want to help, fix the lanceship's capture points. :)

...and its texture. And a proper working AI. And weapon ballance. And more research. And make good looking ship icons. And make a new resource collector fitting into the yet not existing RU drop off points. And the lacking ship families (they could at least use a Carrier and Destroyers for example).

I mean if you're building a house, sometimes you must sacrifice the heliport, a fourth bedroom and the sauna with swimming pool to ever hope to see it finished.

Just played this again recently. It's a shame you stopped modding Pouk, this was my favorite mod before I started modding. :( Still great as it always was.

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.

Camera control, yeah try the VSYNC option in the options menu, that should do it.
