Simplex started as a branch from Complex. It has combined features from Path To Victory as well as many other mods through a long history of R&D. This mod aims to excavate the full potential of the Homeworld 2 engine and will simply blow your mind with incredible fun!
Many improvements have been made since the last version.
This mod is so big, it has to be uploaded as two RAR files! This is the first file, part 2 is here:
Extract both files to your Homeworld2\Data folder (with WinRAR 5.0 or higher version) and read the PDF manual for installation.
Main changes from 3.7:
Visual fx overhaul -- many weapons now have better effects
New subsystems and techs:
New weapon subsystems added for Vaygr
Vaygr destroyer is now modular
Vaygr destroyers now can be equipped with smoke screen. Through upgrades, the smoke screen can achieve similar distractive role as the Hiigaran ECM
Most platforms now have experience
Probes and platforms now have fuel system -- they will no longer be able to move when the fuel is empty; research the relavant technology to unlock refueling ability
Improved performance -- this is done by implementing a cache system for all the split sobgroup functions to reduce computational load
AI players will use their scouts and fighters to actively find crates
AI players will use their super long-range weapons to eliminate threat to their production capital ships
Fixed an issue where the AI players could stop building subsystems after a long time.
