The mod will spread over all four Star Trek eras (ENT, TOS, TMP and TNG) and you will find a diverse and well balanced list of starships and space stations at your disposal
This mod aims to bring together the best parts of such classic games as Star Trek: Armada 2 and
Star Trek: Legacy in the beautiful and malleable Homeworld 2 engine

We aim to boldly go where no Star Trek game has gone before!

G'day everyone!

Today I am going to give you a quick run through on how to access the Steam network for multiplayer games as described by one of the Gearbox devs on their forum. This is not working just yet according to this thread, but this is how it will work when it does, and there are workarounds described in the thread. When this is patched I will update this news post to remove the mention of it not working yet

As for how it should work...

Step 1: Pretty obvious, go into the mods section of the launcher

Steps for multiplayer

Step 2: Select HW2 classic mods

Steps for multiplayer

Step 3: Select the mod you want to play multiplayer games with

Steps for multiplayer

Step 4: Add "-mpbeta" to the command line section and launch the game!

Steps for multiplayer

This is the instructions given by Gearbox as the workaround for the launcher bug in the meantime:

Create a shortcut to the executable in the Homeworld2Classic\Bin\Release folder (Homeworld2.exe) and then modify the shortcut to add "-mpbeta" to the end of the target line, followed by "-workshopmod", followed by the path to your mod. This path will be different for different players.

The path will start with the folder inside the Homeworld2Classic\DataWorkshopMods folder (that folder will by your numerical Steam ID) followed by a backslash, followed the folder with your mod's Workshop ID, followed by a backslash, followed by the name of your mod's .big file, like this:

-mpbeta -workshopmod 76557197238954965\403358147\STC_GAMMA.big

You can use that shortcut to explicitly run multiplayer with your mod. Just be aware that each player will need to modify this path to use their specific SteamID as the first part of the folder name.

Just a detail, it seems that setting the victory condition to "Destroy Team production" doesn't make any difference with the normal "Destroy production" one. When I, or one of my allies destroy the yards and outpost of one AI player who gots allied AI, the rest of its ships get wiped out of the map even if their allies are still alive !

Also, the construction bees are untargetable when their mother yard is destroyed which is annoying when playing in the condition of "Destroy all ships" victory. The bees remain after beeing deployed from an attacked shipyard (trying to repair it) and you can't trigger victory.

It is a nice touch to put alien ships in ENT era since Earth doesn't have that many ship types at that time. I always lived Vulcan ships in the series, and seeing them in this Mod is just beautiful !
The Andorian Kumari also is a badass of a ship !

Where did you find the model for the Tellarite T'Garim ? It is nice since the series production cut the budget at the end and decided to put the Xindi Arboreal (the Wookie style guys) type of ship in the 4th season ENT episode about the formation of the coalition.

I also love the Refit of the NX class, as seen in the fan series "The Romulan wars" ! But even with this refit, in the game, the NX is no match for Romulan Dreadnaughts !

To finish, I am very fond of the ENT era Warp 7 Romulan prototype, so much like a Steamrunner class of the 24th Century Fed.
The TOS era Fed Firestorm class very well done too, giving a taste of the past NX class and future Akira and Steamrunner classes !

Nice touch as well about the TOS era Fed scout by naming it Archer class :

Fantastic mod, really does an excellent job of bringing Star Trek to Homeworld 2. Ships and weapon effects all look great and there’s a lot of little details that really make it come alive. Revamped hyperspace is a great addition as it makes combat and resource gathering much more painless. Only downside is that most maps don’t have a colored skybox, making ships sometimes difficult to see against a mostly black background. Shipyard research also seems a little long, slowing down your midgame. Research…
