The Homeworld2 v1.2 community patch is a simple modification with numerous minor tweaks to the v1.1 version that were partially inspired by the input of other Homeworld2 players. v1.2 aims at making the game slightly more realistic in terms of exo-atmospheric combat by modifying the ship maneuvering styles and the weapon effects, giving the game a more militaristic feel while still retaining the game play of the original v1.1 patch. Overall the game play has hardly been altered. As such, the same strategies used in v1.1 will apply to v1.2.
v1.2 is a visually-pleasing mod (influenced by the TFS mod) that still retains v1.1's strategic game play value.
