The FX Mod is a modification for Homeworld2 led by the 9CCN Team, a group of Chinese modders who are known for their work on the popular Gundam SEED modification.

The goal of the FX mod is to bring back all races from Homeworld1 and add a ton of changes to the current Homeworld2. Examples include new units, special abilites, textures, maps, player modes and more!

The current playable races are the Hiigaran, Vaygr, Taiidan, Kadeshi, Progenitors and Turanic Raiders. The Bentusi are currently being developed and are said to be 'three races in one'.

The current version of the FX mod is v1.81 - New Hope since it marks the beginning of adding all long-awaited features like military ranking system, re-textured ships, fleet color support, Single-Player campaign and more.

Even with the amount of awesome changes that have been made so far the creators say the entire FX concept is done for 50%. Many people have marked this mod as their favorite modification for Homeworld2 when v1.72 got released, and it only gets better!
