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!
Improved everything. Simply everything...
This mod is so big, it has to be uploaded as two RAR files! The other part 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 3.8:
Improved stability -- 00000000 crash has been effectively eliminated by reducing excessive sound fx. However, 00000010 and 00000030 crash still exist (since somewhere around 3.0) and the cause is still unknown despite hundreds of tests. One possibility is memory leak due to how far mod has already pushed beyond what the original HW2 engine was designed for. So the only way to be secure is to save your game frequently.
New maps, megaliths, ships, subsystems, research, music, etc.
New cheat functions. You can now add Honor Points and increase your unit cap.
Some megaliths have wreck now.
Hiigaran and Vaygr can now call in tactical support for all classes of ships at the cost of Honor Points. This opens the possibility for a new gameplay style: you can just focus on the combat instead of building if you think you are really good at it (when in fact you are probably not).
Shipwreck can now be captured and repaired to restore the original ship (inspired by C&C3).
Improved repair function. Patchers and Mechanics will now more readily repair nearby ships.
Improved performance under extreme conditions -- this is done by cutting the computing load when there are too many FTL Light Granules, ECM or Smoke Screen dummy objects present. Also, the shoot at surrounding ability of all weapons has been removed.
Rudimentary support for multiplayer -- all randomness in weapon files have been removed. All random functions in Lua scripts are substituted with a pseudo random function. Drive Mode and Cheats are disabled in multiplayer. But out of synch still always happens when tested in multibox mode.
Changed camera vertical FOV to 55 degrees to minimize mismatch between foreground and background during rotation.
