HW Classic Mod Rebalance
This mod aims to fix bugs and add missing features to Luke Moloney's Homeworld Classic Mod. It is a seperate installation, not an update or a patch.
Quote (From Luke Moloney's Homeworld Classic Mod):
"Welcome to the Homeworld Classic Mod. This mod attempts to implement the multiplayer features of Homeworld 1, AKA Homeworld Classic, in Homeworld 2.
"The following features are implemented:
* Unlimited unit caps
* Carrier battle
* Win condition - capture enemy capital ship
* Resource injections
* Resource lump sum injection
* Research disabled
* Hyperspace disabled"
Extract this archive into your "Homeworld2\Bin\Gamerules\" folder. You must have installed the Homeworld 2 1.1 patch in order for this mod to function.
See the discussion link for Luke Moloney's original version for gameplay instructions.
SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING LEVELS
In order to play using custom level files (maps), the level files must be placed into your "Homeworld2\Data\LevelData\Multiplayer\HomeworldClassic\" folder. If the folder does not already exist, it must be created.
When playing using the "Start With" option set to "HW1 Map Default", make sure to select the same race as is specified for your position within the level file. To see which race is specified for your position, look in the bottom-right corner of the level thumbnail. (You can also refer to the "Default Player Race" chart in the HTML file included with the HW Classic Maps archive.) (R1 = Hiigaran; R2 = Vaygr.)
The file "HWClassicRebalance_Config.lua" can be reconfigured to make the gamerule work with other mods, thereby eliminating the need to edit "homeworldclassic.lua", itself. Simply add or remove items to or from the tables as needed. (The tables themselves, however, must not be removed.) Note: when adding new races, the races must be listed in the same order as they are in "race.lua".
