Vaygr Expansion is a mod which aims to stay true to the original Homeworld 2 game by merely expanding on what is already there and not adding any new major gameplay mechanics or 'tweaking' any of the existing units.
The goal of this mod is to tell the story of Makaan, and his Vaygr, from his rise to Warlord, all the way to Battle for Sajuuk, and even after. Please check below for a fully detailed list of features.

First, I'd like to apologize for our lack of content over the Christmas Holidays, but I'm sure that you all can appreciate the fact that we were busy with our families and friends at the time. Heck, I myself met this amazing woman at a New Year's party, and I can tell you now that she's been keeping me extremely busy! ;)
However, the holidays are over, and we are all now sliding back into our work for the mod. Although I have nothing to show you from the artistic department, I do have this, an extract from the script which I have decided to share with you all!
Cinematic 1 - Introduction
"In, our, First Time... We were a mighty people, a race of warriors, battling over our homeworld to compete for domination."
Similar to the intro sequences in the original game that depict the battles during the Kiith Wars. A Vaygr flag can clearly be seen.
"However, in our blindness, we destroyed the very world that we fought to control. Our Homeworld of Vay, fractured, it's location... Lost, to the Sands of Time."
Similar to the fourth, and a segment of the fifth, cinematic in the original Homeworld.
"However, we as a people, were not made extinct. Mighty fleets, known as 'Crusades', were formed. Travelling only on sublight drives, they swept through what is now known as the Vaygr Reaches, conquering and enslaving the worlds in their wake. Four thousand years have passed and the Vaygr are now a significant force in the galaxy, and with this, the greatest threat that the Council has ever faced."
Similar to the Khar-Toba cutscene during Homeworld's 'Tenhauser Gate' mission.
"One such Warlord, Makaan, is awaiting the completion of his Flagship at Vanig, one of the many great Strongholds of the Vaygr Warlords, deep within their territories."
The Flagship inside the dock, incomplete, with collectors carrying containers, carrying girders, working on the ship, etc.
*After a change in the sequence to Makaan's Personal Carrier on approach* *
"This is the prequel to the End Times."
*The scene 'fades' out of the cinematic and into ingame*
I hope that you all enjoyed that little snippet, as now I offer you another wall of text, the completed ship roster for Kane's Vaygr in multiplayer:
