TFS v2.8.2 Full Release. UPDATE: Campaign levels should load properly in this release. To use the new Hiigaran cruisers, use the EB&R Game mode. List...
Tactical Fleet Simulator (TFS) is a total overhaul that completely redefines the Homeworld experience. TFS aims to transform Homeworld2 into a tactics-oriented combat simulator by enhancing the tactical aspect of the game through the inclusion of new content and revamping the entire pace of combat to simulate a more immersing and adrenaline-soaked experience. Recurring themes are quasi-modern (circa 20th century) air and naval doctrines modified for three-dimensional movement complete with a proper unit classification system. Grand strategy plays a significant role, but the emphasis is placed on battlefield adaptability simulated by a large amount of available assets - some of which have similar roles but are only applicable under specific circumstances. Combined arms is the name of the game: there are no individual "super" powered units. Even the strongest ships will be taken down in short order if not managed correctly and utilized in conjunction with other assets.
The latest release of TFS represents almost eight years of development and constant refinement.
Announcement: TFS v2.8.3
Tactical Fleet Simulator will be updated to v2.8.3 adding further refinements to the gameplay experience, including modified HODs for existing ships and subsystems, including the FFP-31 Interceptor Frigate and FF/C-12B Assault Fighter. Other planned changes include general bug fixes with game modes, cleaning up and standardizing the maps included, and fixing any issues that are discovered with unit standardization and balancing.
TFS v2.8.3 will also be released with a comprehensive manual in PDF format detailing game strategies and information on each ship.
Stay tuned for further updates.
Mission 3 Issue(s):
Due to the high volume of comments I have received regarding the third level on the single player campaign I decided to record myself playing through it myself using v2.8.2 to see if I could replicate the reported issue(s). I was able to pass the mission just fine without any issues.
If you are receiving issues with the third level and would like to help me resolve the problem, post information on your specific problem you are receiving in the comment section. If you have a basic knowledge of LUA scripting and want to contribute or help test and evaluate various versions of the campaign missions in TFS, send me a PM.
