DESCRIPTION
This mod is a compilation of several, smaller mods I had made earlier; namely
the BENTUSI ROULETTE, DEATHMATCH PLUS, SPECIAL FLEETS and DEFINED ROLES mods.
It is a game-type mod that expands upon the existing Deathmatch game-type. In
addition, the mod has been re-configured to work with version 1.0.0 of Home-
world Universe.

INSTALLATION
Installation is done by subscribing to the mod on Steam Workshop if you have
the Steam version of the game. For the GOG.com/ModDB version, extract the ZIP
archive and copy the "DataGameplayEnhancedHWU" folder to your
"Homeworld2Classic" directory, then add "-moddatapath DataGameplayEnhancedHWU
-overrideBigFile -luatrace" to your Desktop shortcut's "Target" field.

INSTRUCTIONS

WIN CONDITION
1) HW2 Normal: Same as HW2 default. A player is killed if he/she has no more
production ships left.
2) Kill Team Production: A player is killed if there are no team members with
production ships.
3) Kill All Enemy Ships: A player is killed if there are no team members with
any ships.
4) Quit Manually: The game doesn't end until one team quits and leaves the
game.

DEFINED ROLES
In this game-mode, one player controls production and capital ships; another
player controls fighters, corvettes and probes; and another player controls
resourcing, frigates and platforms. If no players on a team choose the
"Production/Capital" role, then all players on this team retain their
mothership, carrier and production/research capability. If someone *does*
select the "Production/Capital" role, then other players on the team do not
suffer from a unit cap.

BENTUSI ROULETTE
In this game-mode a selectable number of research options are randomly granted
and restricted for each player at the beginning of gameplay.

SPECIAL FLEETS
This mode gives the player extended starting fleet options. You can choose from
several different fleet makeups, each being composed of a different assortment
of ships and research.

GAME SPEED
This setting allows one to slow the game down to a fraction of its default
speed.

BACKGROUND MUSIC
Here you can select which background track gets played while playing. There's
also a "Shuffle" option to randomly switch between different songs.

SOME NOTES ABOUT THE DEFINED ROLES MOD AND HWU
Normally, I would only restrict items belonging to the player's race. However,
in this case I want every race's ships restricted since there's a chance a
player might get some motherships from other races (i.e. DEFINED ROLES' capital
role). Unfortunately, the way HWU is set up, a subsystem can appear in multiple
races, resulting in a possible conflict. This is also why there are so many
"luaplayer 334" subsystem errors in HW2.log.
