Well, what the name doesn't say, the pictures should. I aim to make Homeworld 2 a visual feast. At this point I plan no gameplay changes. Credit to CNLPEPPER for his v2 shaders. Also feel free to tell me what you like and not, I can't guarantee everybody's happiness but I'll try my best to listen.
This is it! I have finished up the mod. All the bits are finished and i polished a few things that i was unhappy with. I apologize for the longer delay, but i was attacked by two guys and my car was wrecked on the 14th of December and i was out of action for a while. There aren't many changes. In addition to finishing all the probes, megs and subs, i made minor changes to the hiigaran carrier, bc and resource collector.

If you have any suggestions or if you think i missed something, add them below. To install, unrar the bigfile into the homeworld2/data folder and go to the homeworld2/bin/release folder. Find the homeworld2 executable and make a shortcut of it, on the desktop or wherever you want. Right click the shortcut and go to its properties.
Add the following to the target field: -mod UltraV1.big -luatrace -hardwarecursor -w 1920 -h 1080. Obviously replace the 1920 and 1080 with the particulars of your resolution. You can also add -determcompplayer, this supposedly makes the cpu players more challenging. Make sure there is a space before each "-". Run the shortcut.
Make sure that you are running homeworld 2 V1.1. The mod does not work if homeworld 2 is not updated. also make sure that shadows are switched on in the game options. If you have problems, please feel free to send me a private message detailing your problem and include the HW2.log file, as this expedites finding a solution.
