Some advice has been adopted! Please read the installation instructions first.
Homeworld 2 Complex Simple (in BIG form) Installation:
1. Extract ComplexSimple.big into the DATA folder of your Homeworld 2 game folder. For example, D:\Homeworld2\Data
2. Go to Homeworld2\Bin\Release Folder, right click on Homeworld2.exe and create a shortcut. And be sure your Homeworld 2 is already V1.1!
3. Right click the shortcut, and left click Properties, then add " -mod ComplexSimple.big -hardwarecursor" to the end of the existing line in the Target box. For example, D:\Homeworld2\Bin\Release\Homeworld2.exe -mod ComplexSimple.big -hardwarecursor
(Don't forget to click Apply)
4. You can now play this mod via the new shortcut!
And if you have any trouble installing or playing this mod, just tell me, I'll examine the problem and come up with solutions at first time!
Main changes from 1.5:
the speed of all capital ships has been dramatically reduced in normal action, but players can regain their high speed through research (2nd Stage Thruster, which also brings new engine effect)
capital ships can bank at any angle now, because this is more realistic in 3D space
Command Fortress and Chimera Station can build ships now
Hiigaran missiles are faster
more subsystems and turrets for some ships, for example, Hiigaran Battlecruiser has 20 torpedo launchers now!
enhanced UI, including experience overlay for every single ship
new maps (for 2, 3, 5 and 6 players)
completely new starting fleet options in custom skirmish, which brings much more playability!
new hyperspace effect for Vaygr
