The story behind this mod: In one word, I am a n00b. I didn't know how to modify anything except txt, even though I've been playing the Homeworld series for so many years... Homeworld 2 is my favorite in the series, and I always dreamt to make my own mod for Homeworld 2. However, I am a n00b. A n00b is someone who doesn't know anything about extracting big files or editing models in Maya, or anything else told by other modders that sounded truly puzzling to me. So I thought maybe I would never be able to make a mod for Homeworld 2.
However, many years later, a mod gave me a hope. I downloaded Homeworld 2 Complex 8 beta 0.9, and found it completely decompiled and could be edited in NotePad... I was so excited that I couldn't wait to edit it in my own way. Hence the birth of this mod!
So, regarding this is my first attempt to create a mod for Homeworld 2, don't be surprised if you find me ruined the epic Complex mod! Just take this as a n00b's practice (with NotePad), and this is the story of a n00b...
Finally, give all my sincere thanks to the Complex team, maybe I would never know how Homeworld 2 works if I hadn't met this mod, let alone modifying it by myself. For the reason that I must give a name to this mod on ModDB, I decided to call it SIMPLE, because my work is too simple compared to the source code of COMPLEX (which is tormenting but fun to study)...

NOTE: This mod has been approved by the Complex team! That means I'll keep studying and (hopefully) make this mod better, and sure you can download and play it! Thank Beghins and Baroness1 for their kindness and enthusiasm, thank the Complex team again! You can visit the Complex program at www.homeworld2complex.com and www.Complex.mastertopforum.com

For a long list of all the other contributors I also want to give great thanks to, click here

As a beginner in modding, I truly appreciate all the genius works you put in all these awesome mods! As a player, I also want to thank all you modders for keeping this game alive (well, that was at least until Homeworld Remastered came out)... Anyways, thank all of you!

  • Disclaimer 1: This mod will continue to be updated on the HW2 Classic platform, and will NOT be transplanted to HWR because reasons.
  • Disclaimer 2: ModDB is the ONLY official page of this mod, meaning if you want to get the official answer to your questions, you should ask here. You might find this mod also posted on other websites (such as Steam Workshop), but they are reposts of this mod by other players.

Hello @ Siliconworm. Just tried Campaign in 3.8. Something is broken with the M01 script. Expected Vaygr Enforcements counts down to 0:00 then just sits there without triggered the next phase of the mission.

Thanks for feedback, I noticed this bug too and it will be fixed in the next version. The cause of this bug is the low speed of the arriving hyperspace platforms. So right now, if you wait for twice the amount of time, they will still arrive and trigger the game event.

I've been trying to run both Simple version 2.9 and 3.8 and both crash before finish loading for Skirmish.

2.9 will get right to the very end and seems to switch over to the loading into the game and crash.

3.8 always crashes when loading Universe in the loading screen, about half-way through.

I've checked all settings and the only thing log file says is something about memory not loading to some dll.

If there is any info let me know, I run Complex and Enhanced just fine, among other mods as well.

Thanks.

Get a clean copy of HW2, patch it to 1.1, and install the mod there without other mods.
It's likely that there some skirmish settings remembered for your other mods are conflicting with this mod.

This is an awesome mod, specially when all you want is to overkill your enemies with DAKKA and Overpower lol. No really, i like this mod, i love the intensified number of weapons in every ship, however i dont like mods that focus on blowing up everything to the hell using as main feature Overpowered ships and weapons. Since i'm a strategy and tactics lover and i like much more when the battles are prolongued and my units suvirvability depends of the orders that i give them and not by the number…
