a homeworld2 mod from china and still in progress.DON'T EXTRACT my mods thanks.("please don't use my ships in your mod") powered by Xsystem.
the game runs well, but being made for chinese, it is impossible to fully use the english version. half the text still in it is chinese in the english version, the main menu is also in chinese, the ships and factions have a dollar sign the a long number for everything. this mod may work extremely well when used by someone who can read chinese, but for an english speaking american who has now idea what is going on, it makes zero sense. Also the skirmish mode is trash, the ai spawns in hundreds of ships and yours take ten times longer to build
Beautiful ships, nice tech tree and effects, amazing trading mode. I would given this a 10/10 if the skirmish mode wasn't so imbalanced. The mod lacks any real AI (an AI that actually uses resources and builds facilities and such to build its ships.) and instead has some strange script that just endless spawns ships one after the other. In fact this script actually kind of cheats because it is able to get high tech ships it could not possibly afford very quickly and send them straight to you in a line without having even scouted you, so I would have to give this a 5/10 because It feels more like the game is not completely finished yet, as skirmish mode is undoubtedly the most important mode for a homeworld 2 mod.
Fantastic graphics and ships designs, but balance needs some freaking work hardcore. I think the AI was tweaked severely as well, as even playing against "Easy" level AI, you'll be swarmed within the first 10 minutes of a 1v1 by an endless stream of corvettes, followed quickly by a swarm of very OP frigates that will rape anything you can field that early in the game (as Hiigara, anyhow.) I haven't tested other races yet, but this severely needs a balance pass or seven.
