hi guys, hi developpers,

First in first, i would like to congrats the developpers who make homeworld what it deserves to be, and to continue the unique homeworld's adventure !

2n : apologize, english is not my birth language ! :D

I was looking for mods and i'm hesitating with Complex Enhanced and REARM. Whats's the difference between each ? i saw both trailers

Why don't you guys (REARM and COMPLEX team) cooperate to give us the best STR's experience on earth? :p i think you should!!

Thank you.

Complex and REARM are really completelly different mods. If you're into depth, strategy, in-game progress, fleet and multiple resource management and those kind of things, the Complex is a mod for you. If you would like a Homeworld 2 expansion with good quality models that keeps the core game intact, that doesn't change physics, pace, just enlarge the variety of ships, races and adds new weapons with the new attack/counter relationships, download REARM.
But the best thing is probably to download both and decide what's closer to your taste.

The cooperation already exists, for example Complex uses REARM's Hgn Supercarrier, Vgr Missile Battlecruiser, Vgr Artilerry Frigate and maybe a handful of other ships and subsystems.
In return Beghins, the Complex creator, offered help with some technical problems REARM has.

is it possible that the 003c is the newest version of the mod,
that no-one's working on it anymore?

Pouk May 25 2013, 7:27pm replied:

I'm not sure I understand the question. But if you asked what I think you asked, then the 0.0.3c is the last version and the current development is slow (mainly becuase it consists of polishing and more polishing rather than content creation).

OK downloaded REARM Mod and crashes on skirmish, regardless of map etc. Running Windows 7, any ideas? Game crashed on load screen, not during game play. Is there a link to this "Patch 1.1" I have read about? Please help.

Huh, I have a problem.
I can't use "Uinstall R.E.A.R.M." file, as I can't open it. What program do I need?

If it doesn't work for you, you can always just delete the REARM's .big file and locale folder. That's what the unistaller does anyway.

I played through the entire campaign on 3c, and can vouch that the second to last mission can be hard, but is doable. I had 12 battlecruisers on mine, and believe me is it a bitch... But it is doable. Focus on building bombers and ion frigates, and pretty much play is like guerrilla warfare. Run in, hit a BC hard, pop out, then finish it off with your bombers while your frigates jump in to hit another BC. Rinse and repeat, then you can focus on the smaller stuff... Or you can use the arty figs if you want to do it the easy way, but I got bored of that route.

you know that the more units you have, the more units will the enemy send? it's a bitch, but from time to time I had to sell my units in order to survive the next map...x)
