Wow, you work fast. So did you find a map editor or did you script it all?

What about adding a few vertices to the sphere used for planets? (to avoid those hard hedges in the shape)

Ciao,

Complex 6.8 out this week end on Saturday.
It will be downloadable only for members of this forum.

Features:
-planets on map background;
-new map called Topleca (large scale, 90000);
-enhanched game camera view (more far, 9000 -> 15000);
-gameplay balancing;
-AI balancing, expecially for the honour progression;
-other few issues on bugs and tuning.

After this release (I think the last of the 6 series) we will start the development of Complex 7.

Excellent! But will dreadnought badges be the right way up now? Confused

Cool.
I see here a preparation for BIG maps... and real planets Very Happy
Will the new big map be for 6p or can we play it like in duel? I like to play against only one AI at the time, lol.

Also, just an ideia.. it would be so cool if we could hyperspace to other maps. Altrough this might be vey difficult to mod or even impossible... Rolling Eyes

I'm really glad that you're still working on Complex Beghins!

As for larger maps, I'm all for it. I only play on the largest available and that starts to feel a little cramped (well with five enemies it does anyway Mr. Green )

sounds great! big maps sounds terrific. Thanks for all your hard work, Beghins and the rest of the team.
Aliksander - Fri Apr 04, 2008 7:04 am
Post subject:
That map looks great. Is all of it dark like their fighting in the planet's shadow? We need more planet backround maps, make it look like your fighting for more than resources. It would also be cool to have a map with a destroyed planet as background in fragments with lots of asteroid bases, dust clouds and radiation clouds on the map itself.

Post subject:
nice ^^ i think the BC won Razz

the planet in the background looks also very cool but the hedges in the shape are too hard as Epon said. should be like the screen with the earth in the planet management thread Smile

and thx for the enhanched game camera view ^^

Its hard to believe after all these years Relic did such a good job (as usual) this game still moves on. Especially with other companies still putting out $50+ crap.

Thanks Beghin for the best mod for HW.

Post subject:
Good Lord, man! Do you have a life? Well, either way, I am boundlessly grateful for your efforts. I'm looking forward to the bigger maps (what, more maps? YAY!) and how we're going to interact with planets.

There are some naysayers, but I think the planet(iods) are a viable gameplay option if used properly. Of course, knowing what would be how to best do that is the trick, no?

I mean really, just how much does the Complex have in common with the original HW2 as far as gameplay goes? I have a stock version on my computer and when I played a skirmish recently I was out of sorts because so much of how I manage things are totaly different. I got bored.

So I dig it man, keep up the good work.

Trouble is i have a pretty slow computer, so after about 40 minutes of play im down to single figure FPS. Doesn't stop me of course Smile

Just played 6.8... i love the start position locator on the server screen.... very handy.

No crashes, all ran perfectly.

sensor manager's blue blobs are rendered behind planets...
also, I can notice a relevant fps drop when looking at the earth-like planet in the map where that planet is present toghether with a large moon

Works very nicely for me. I've only tried the new (huge map) and i quite liked it, although my personal favourite remains Balcora (i only ever play as myself versus a single CPU player). That map has some very nice resource areas, i love all the dust clouds.

It crashes while on the game loading screen on Mac OSX 10.4.10. I get the same thing as epon in the terminal, a segmentation fault. I could post the full error from the console if you want to see it, its kinda long.

OK, post it, thanks.

Beghins - Mon Apr 14, 2008 9:16 am
Post subject:
The only thing I've added into maps are planets in background, but it's very strange you can't load the game.
Try a match in a map without planet, like Elliptical Assault, and if the game crash during loading, try to load it more then one time.
Let me know what happen.
And, is there here some Mac users who load levels without any problems?
Epon - Mon Apr 14, 2008 12:09 pm
Post subject:
Elliptical Assault load!

Now, Epopea2 for example crash during "Render Pre Level"...

Strangely I don't get the segmentation fault in terminal and don't have any crash log... strange...

Wait, if a textured ship work on all platform, why another textured model won't? I mean HW2 engine use a specific format, not two, or yes?

Could not be a simple problem of coding in the level itself?

How could we test your planet models outside those levels? perhaps replacing a ship model by the planet one to see if it load?

Epon, In the map you have load (file 2) instead of the planet in background you have Balcora Gate, take a look, so the problem is in the planet model, may be its scale, may be textures, but I'm not on a Mac and it's hard to find what's wrong, so I need informations, try to read the warlords forum, or try to play that mod in a map with planets in background.

Also try to replace the file attached here to data\ship\earth\earth.ship and run the map Open Cosmo, let me know what happen.

You need Bigar, a command line tool to pack or unpack .big archives. I don't have a link in mind but you can do a search on the relic forum.

Once you have all the files and folders in your data folder, instead of -mod Complex6X.big, you use the override command use the unpacked version.

, you will find 4 files (the planet earth scaled to 0.75, 0.5, 0.25, 0.1); rename each file to earth and replace it to data\ship\earth\earth.hod then run Open Cosmo and tell me which file works and which no.

Sorry, if 0.1 doesn't work... planets are not for Mac, the next release will go out in 2 version, Windows and Mac (without planets in background), unless you find some documentation/informations around the net.

@sangamc: The problem can't be fixed, Its a diference in the builds of the games between the mac and windows version. It appears as though macs can't have planets. I believe Beghins said he would ul a mac version w/o planets.

And to continue the off-topic spamaroo, I bet Carla Bruni does use a mac, but for all the wrong reasons (because she thinks it makes her cool, unique creative, etc.), not for the power user reasons, right Epon?

Okay, new to the complex mod, but man, does it kick ass. However, I have also noticed the crashes(I tend to do a lot of solo skirmish vs cpu), while not early into a game, they tend to happen 2+ hours into play for me.

Also, when playing as the vaygr, fleet selection only shows total ships in each class, while as hiigaran, each ship type present shows up as well. I don't know if this was something still in development or not.

But it's a great new breath into what was for me, a mediocre game at best(sorry, but sierra had it right in HW1!).

I bought a new pc (old pc wouldn't play complex), installed vista, installed HW2 and ......waited.....waited a bit longer....emmigrated to Australia, immigrated back to UK....and......vista crashed... Restarted Vista...blue screen...after blue screen.... I found the vista disk, it now makes a very good anti drip mat for my Tea. Finally, installed XP again, and guys...wow what a exceptional mod.

You've created a real gem of a game. I have been a fan of real time stategy games since Total Annihilation and Star Trek Armada. Chris Taylors new Supreme Commander is also excellent. All I can think about when I play this is the epic space battles in B5, and some of the DS9 stuff.

The game is well balanced, and the A.I is quite challenging. The construction options are very unique and I'm amazed at how much thought has gone into it. I believe there will probably be a new game soon, I hope they use your mod as an example of what they could achieve.

Its really good to see a group a people showing dedication and quality to something they believe in.

Keep up the good work,

I agree Fasta, Complex is the bomb.... but the addition of other races is good. A lot of work left to do on FX i believe, while complex really only needs some finishing touches.

Post subject:
I've felt tempted to try FX but after reading the above maybe I'll wait a bit.

I would love to see multiple races in Complex. I suppose most pvp games are same-race contests to make an even match, but in human v AI I think it would be better if all players were different races. With a maximum of six players per game and a choice of seven races I would have a real problem deciding which to leave out!

I can see one snag though. At least one of the FX-created units is already in use in Complex in a different role: the Turanic gun platform. It would have to be taken away from the Hiigs and given back to the Turanic Raiders, but I don't see a problem with that. I think I've only built them once!

Post subject: to much nukes
hi guys first of all grate job beghins as usual

i managed to play last night a 6.91 match and was a bit disapointed about the battleship
it behaved like an ion cannon frig wich is good considering its heavy weapons are on its side but the nukes it fires are waaaaay to powerfull and frequent and u dont even have to build them like tho other weapons
in my idea the nukes in general are killing the strategic side of the game
the juggernaut was fine couse it was slow and u could defend your self against it yet if umanaged to slam on in the midle of a fleet it did quite a lot of dmg
but now even the shuttle has nukes , and the battleship , yes it the most expensive and such ship but still once u get like 2 of those its like nothing the vaygr can produce last most then few seconds
i dont ask u to remove the nukes alltogather couse a lot of ppl may love em althow i would like to see them go but at least make an option at start
no WMDs :no battleship nuke (or if its to problamatic to tkae out its nukes then take out the battle ship alltogather for this option) no shuttle nukes no nukes of any kind except the juggernaut
yesterdays match i had 3 battleships and just stood there and decimated entire fleets of 6-7 super cap ships most of them even before the battleships got within fireing range of there conventional weapons
so as a request and i hope i am not the only one could u make an option where u can play without all these nukes

pesonally i think the number of attack minicrafts from H BattleCruiser become problem in moment You are jumped by 6 or 10 of them
that mean hundreds just these ones

such battle become FPS lagfest even with very powerful videocards ...

and please do something with the 'AI helps' because
it's complete waste of time to play game just to realize AI just was donated 3 BS and 10 BC out of nowhere
and you being attacked by fleet more powerful than your whole side ...

hell once i even saw AI being donated battleship while you started just research destroyers ... (fastest research route) ...

something is wrong with that
(i got no problem with AI gets some boosts but in moment it turns game to unplayable something is wrong)

once i defeat first wave of BS/BC and then get jumped by 4 times bigger force from same AI (no chance he could raise such forces)

so i wonder how the hell AI aids work ...
is it cummulative or multiply each time is there any cooldown or probability it happens ?

this happens on few which quite shocked me on normal it was nearly unbelivable what they got donated in 3vs3 match ...

To be fair, it isn't easy.

I tried several online services and even after correcting the spelling of "Zerstörer" I got these results:

To replace for the nevertheless rather simple destroyers with these beautiful ones (3 times)

To replace the nevertheless quite simple destroyers by these beautiful (twice)

The nevertheless rather easy destroyers by this clarify to substitute (twice)

The relatively simple by destroyers to replace these beautiful

The but right simple destroyer by this belles to replace

The first one is obviously the best, even if not perfect, but you definitely need to get lucky with your choice of translator.

those ships are from TPOF mods...i think beghins was asking if we should implement one as the Higaran BS...one one of the topics..

correct me if i'm wrong... Smile

anyway, just tried out 6.9.2...the EZ setting.. Embarassed

im quite new at this mod so i just tryout a simple game...few questions tho:

1) how do actually fast produce your resource management? i feel like im struggling quite a bit coz there's tonnes of research n i dunno which ones to go first...any ideas?

2) those sniper frigates are freaking sneaky...dangit!!! Razz

3) the fighters have no real impact tho... i prefer corvettes rather than fighters...or im playing them wrong?

4) i nearly got screwed coz they send 2 juggernauts...2 of them...and im just building my fleet up...thank god those flaks n missile frigates plus a couple of pulsars do their jobs well..

1 I always build the harvest control module. It speeds things up a bit in the start, and it unlocks upgrades to let you gather RUs faster,store more RU's faster dropoff etc.

2 They can shoot far but an Ion platform wil take care of it.

3 Fighters have to be in large groups to be effective.

4 Disable its engines and keep the you're ships awa, destroy it at a distance.

Quick Notes

I think the Vagyr Battle Cruisers release far too many perforation pods, maybe make the wait interval longer??

I think the AI needs tuning down; my team got totally pwned on a 3v3:
My team: Me, Hiigaran (Normal), Hiigaran (Normal)
Other team: Vagyr (Easy), Vagyr (Easy), Vagyr (Easy)
Explain how it was technically possible for me to lose that

Also, the Vagyr produce far too many capital ships. They came at me with 20+ destroyers and other stuff BC, BS etc.

the AI needs to tune down a bit...its just overwhelming...

They should have a longer reload interval and also a much shorter range - at the moment the little blighters seem to be able to re-target and chase ships all over the map.

They appear to be based on the perforation pods launched by infiltrator frigates. That being so, it would much better if each launcher had the same numbers/frequency characteristics as an infiltrator.

I agree. Maybe the pods should shoot little missiles that do exactly as much damage and have the same characteristics but look better. Concussion missiles might do the part.

Good Lord, man! Do you have a life? Well, either way, I am boundlessly grateful for your efforts. I'm looking forward to the bigger maps (what, more maps? YAY!) and how we're going to interact with planets.

There are some naysayers, but I think the planet(iods) are a viable gameplay option if used properly. Of course, knowing what would be how to best do that is the trick, no?

I mean really, just how much does the Complex have in common with the original HW2 as far as gameplay goes? I have a stock version on my computer and when I played a skirmish recently I was out of sorts because so much of how I manage things are totaly different. I got bored.

So I dig it man, keep up the good work.
Thank you very much Beghins, for your huge effort on making this mod for us, I am very grateful for that. This whole Complex mod is a masterpiece, a piece of really good artwork, t could be sold separately as a standalone game.

Agreed. The Vaygr almost always feel like they need more...stuff. The Hiigarans have a type of ship for excavations, they have a ship for research, a ship for crew, a ship for chamber music concerts, a ship for large formal functions, a ship for crew members with pets...

Those last few are jokes, obviously, but the Vaygr just lack the sheer unit diversity that Hiigarans can field.

That said, this mod is the best thing since molecular oxygen and Beghins is my new favorite person ever!!!

I think its for 7.1. If there are issues, then we post, and Beghins has a centralized place to get a general opinion of 7.1. That being said, hopefully he will un-kill soon the link so we can play it. And I was around for last time, but I'm not sure exactly what the problem is. I'm not sure, but I think it has to do with people distributing Complex for download all over the place. But chances are its something entirely different.

Hey hagop Yeah I'm gettin problems with 7.1 also and I've downloaded 3 times already, Its not my machine it just says missing files or file could be corrupted. I even downloaded the one before this one and that mod works just fine. So I think the 7.1 needs to be resubmitted or something is very wrong.

Post subject:
In the last few weeks more than 400 new users have joined, so they are all trying to get this file at the same time. Distribution control is Beghins one request, so everyone will respect that and not put this file anywhere else. Corrupt files are from download problems, the actual file works without any problems. Use a program like GetRight, and you'll see it does stop two or three times you have to resume to recover from. Regular download does not show that and simply stops with errors in the incomplete file or general corruption that makes the file unusable.

Oh goodness, THANK YOU for this link bud!! I've tried to download it multiple times, at a dreadful average of about 15 kilobytes/sec.... *shudder*...

And now its going strong at an average of about 155 kilobytes/sec. Awesome!

And I gotta say..
Mods that make games more complex and in depth make me all fuzzy inside..But they have to work and be portrayed in a good manner. This mod totally has that, and then some.
The micro management of everything, I really enjoy. It's just grandly awesome.
A large KUDOS to the makers of this mod and all who helped- currently I only have like..version 5.something of this mod, so this'll be a very enjoyable update! Very Happy
Thank you! =)

Good Lord, man! Do you have a life? Well, either way, I am boundlessly grateful for your efforts. I'm looking forward to the bigger maps (what, more maps? YAY!) and how we're going to interact with planets.

There are some naysayers, but I think the planet(iods) are a viable gameplay option if used properly. Of course, knowing what would be how to best do that is the trick, no?

I mean really, just how much does the Complex have in common with the original HW2 as far as gameplay goes? I have a stock version on my computer and when I played a skirmish recently I was out of sorts because so much of how I manage things are totaly different. I got bored.

So I dig it man, keep up the good work.

No, it means you need to find someone who can send you the *.big file. Another option might to find a way to emulate Windows on your Mac so you can run the *.exe file and get the *.big file yourself.

Not on the forums they can't.
MasterTopForums will only allow specific file types to be uploaded. (for archives they are [ace gtar gz rar tar zip], and images can be [gif jpeg jpg png tga tif])
(There is a simple way around this, by appending the extension ".zip" to it, but that's not advisable for a number of reasons; the most prominent being that many people's computers are set up to hide the extensions of known file types, so they couldn't change them back.)

Mmhh... changing an extension seems to be faar simple to me than having to buy and install a piece of software to emulate a system (that I need to buy too) all this to run an .exe file to extract a .big file etc...

And even if I do all that, the link you point me seems to say that a PC big file won't run on Mac... Confused

Try posting something in the aforementioned Mac topic; I can't really offer a great deal more advice; I use a laptop PC. It has been many moons since I last used a Mac (though it was the first computer I ever used.)
The installer is simply meant to help those who aren't familiar with installing mods by hand. It creates the necessary desktop shortcut and installs the *.big file to the HW2 installation directory without the user having to find it by hand.

Would it just not be possible for the developers to archive the .big in a tar. I think .big is compressed, but if not, then zip would be fine as well.

The easy way would be to put the .big into a .zip container. The mac stuffit expander will automatically unzip the file when it is downloaded and the mac users will have the .big file.

Honestly, this is retarded. Why is the download only available though the site? Download speed is 40kb/s tops (No, its not my end. I have a fine cable connection for just about everything, 40kb/s would make sense if this was a torrent or something but this is ridiculous), meaning 2 hours minimum (isn't really that long but that means the download is bound to time out). I'd give the benefit of the doubt and assume they haven't had it hosted on any other site like ModDb, or Filefront yet for a reason, but 2 hours to download, don't really see what justifies that. I know its only been out for a few weeks in which case there hasn't been much time for it to be hosted elsewhere, but seriously, this is completely impractical.

EDIT: Sure enough, 30 mins in the download stops >_>, simply put I cannot download this from this forum atm (Too much traffic, location, poor server for this type of thing to begin with, plenty of possible problems, none of which I can do anything about on my end, so would someone (I really don't care who) please host it somewhere.

Beghins is releasing it his way (and if I had a MOD of this stature, I'd release mine in exactly the same way). Please respect the fact that the Complex Forum is the only official place to download Complex from.

With that said, downloading 7.3.2 my current DL speed is...oh, lets see..FOUR..
FOUR POINT ONE ZERO KB PER SECOND.

While...Ill say it again..I respect this being the only 'offical' place to Download it. IS IT to much to ask for an upload to Gamespy or somewhere else.

And DONT tell me to 'Just use a Download Accellerator/Mannager. I SHOULDENT have to use an outside piece of software for a simple download...

Thank you so much for this mac version. I'm up here in Seattle, WA on Comcast 20 Mbps (yea right) pipe. 5 min into dl and I have a steady 43.9 kb/s. If ppl want, and mods allow, I can podmail, torrent, direct dl this to whomever.

I have waited so long for a mac version as I could never install HW 2 onto a pc - I hate cd checks. But I am very excited. I'm guessing planets don't exist for mac, but I just want to see what y'all have been up to. I have literally checked at least once a week for many moons trying to keep up on the changes.

Truly, thank you for all of your work folks. I can't wait to open this up tomorrow morning!

My download speed for v7.3.3 is around 45Kb/s. The download terminates itself after about 20Mb (out of 200-some Mb). Does anyone know why? A normal download for me is around 3Mb/s (Upload is around 300Kb/s). I'm guessing the site's bandwidth is too low for me to download any faster, but it still shouldn't just cancel my download 20Mb in.

While I download 7.3.3 (already did 2 times, busy third time now) it seems to go from 100 KB/s to something in the 40's, and the 2 previous attempts had been thus far either incomplete our cut of early.

seems some thing's wrong with the server.

Streaks - Wed Jun 03, 2009 2:02 pm
Post subject: Hi guys.
Hi guys. I'm new here.

Always thought that Homeworld2 could have at least been as epic as Homeworld1. Instead, Homeworld2 became the fast-paced, better graphics version of Homeworld1.

Its got so few units! And every unit blows up so fast if you have enough fire-power. Frigates in HW2 are practically sitting ducks that requires Resource collectors for repairs...and the mines you deploy expires? Hmmm...

I hope that this mod would re-make Homeworld2 for me.

Question: I am using a No-CD v.1.1 ENG patch. Will this mod work with this patch?

I tried using DAEMON Tools on HW2, to no avail despite the fact that I tried every security option when creating the HW2 CD image.

(Sorry to the developers for doing this, but I don't want to wear out both my Homeworld2 CD and my laptop's DVD burner just because I have to stick in the CD again and again. Don't worry, I have an original copy of both HW1 and HW2.)

koren - Thu Jun 04, 2009 12:24 pm

i have download and installed the 7.4 version

the higaraan side is superb, but it is no so good on vaygr part.

it is almost difficult for vaygr a pack of 6~10 cruiser or destroyer to take down the heavy support "scafford" ship.

I only managed to hold my ground with flagship less than 50% and all destroyer gone after i JUMPED my space station later when my destroyer squadron all blew up. also, vagyr space station is inferior than the higaraan type. no heavy nuclear production, no super gun turret.

u make higara too strong in term of late game heavy ship on ship choices and firepower.

if i would give a suggestion.
I hope benghis will consider adding an extra command in behavior type to add "ship capture/disable mode"

idea:
when #1~#10 fleet group is call up with infiltrator frigate or marine frigate in it, all ship in the same fleet group with "ship capture disable mode" will only harass the targeted ship with emp fire and engine/non-destroy able part with intention to be capture.

this will make more sense to have emp fire and disabled duration for frigate type and above.

it is difficult for player intend to play ship capture game.

You need to use a download manager to get it. Otherwise it will always come up corrupted (not sure why this is so.)

The download manager that I use that has been kind to me is "Free Download Manager", which as you can guess, is free, unlike IDM. The only problem that I have ever had with is it doesn't like the dowloads from one of the major dowload host sites (I forget which one). Whenever I download something from there, it just makes a download file called X6, and fails to work.

On another note, please be nice when useing a download manager and only open one section for dowload at a time. Utilizing ten seperately dowloading sections at once really hurts everyone, especially those who do not use such download managers.

I fully agree. This mod is the reason Homeworld 2 will be on my drive for years to come. I sure hope Relic has a look at this mod when creating Homeworld 3.
If they do the same oversimplification for Homeworld 3 as they did for DoW2 than we fans are again in for a bad surprise. Please Relic, do not dumb down Homeworld 3. Do not make the same mistake as you made with DoW2. (as if this plee would help Rolling Eyes )

Welcome tee123654. This is a good post in the General section in the future. But to help you out: watch your crew. The Battle Ark (BA) has massive crew requirements. If you start building it, and also build and expend crew on other ships, you can expend beyond the BA's crew needs and then the building just stops. So my suggestion: when building big capitals, halt building other ships until you finish building your capital - saving you time and money in the end.

No thanks for placing the file on a mirror, FilePlanet which assumes that the user is using a PC and requires the said user to install a PC specific plug in in order to download the file! Life is cruel sometimes. Downloading the slow way Smile

Hi guys.
I'm a fan of Homeworld, since the first.
And i loved when i played the second.

But since I've played and started to get bored if HW2, i was looking for news of a possible HW3, and Sierra didn't had the idea to produce a third one.
That got me really.. Crying or Very sad


But then i found Complex a few days ago, I've tried it. I Love it.
Specially the fact that i can build new stuff including some Ships/Stations that were only available to "see" in the campaign.


Very Thanks to the Developer(s) great work.. Mr. Green

If you have firefox: download the firefox application "downthemall".

If you don't get a dowload accelerator. My recommendation is "Free Download Manager". Just be nice to everyone else trying to download the file and set the number of downloading sections to a low number, like 2 or 1.

Basically, with either downthemall or a dl accelerator, downloads automatically save themselves so that if you loose your internet connection, you can pick up the download where you left off. With dl accelerators though, they are able to download multiple pieces of a file all at once, making you one computer seem like 4, or 9, or 7. But the drag on the server is however many sections you have, not just 1 - your computer. So even with 2 sections downloading at once, you are bogging down the server as though two people were downloading at once. I don't know but downthemall may do the same. If anything you get does this, and the normal download speeds are slow, be courteous to those without dl accelerators and choose few or just one section of a file online to be downloaded at once.

Hello all.

I am really in disbelief. I had not played HW 1/2 and the ofset second one in over 4 years, I thought it had died off. I was browsing XFire, when I cam across a few movie shots of complex.

Let me tell you my reaction is floored. I thought HW2 (favorite) had died off.

I am impressed with what I have seen. I am currently reinstalling HW2 and installing complex. I hope all is welcoming here and look forward into delving back into HW.

I do have an issue. I have downloaded Complex 7.4.3

Now I think I have removed all other mods the existed on this computer. Not sure.

I select Complex shortcut. The game seems to begin to activate then goes black with the HW blue mouse pointer with black backdrop then kicks back to my desk top. I go to my homeworld2 shortcut and activate it, takes me straight to game.

So what is it that needs to be checked or reomoved in order to allow the Complex to run.

Any help would be apprecieated.

I noticed this too -- More HUD elements but nothing else. I do not know what tweaking/optimizations were done to the game. I have only played it 6 hours and do not know it well enough to understand its differences. Confused

It would be nice if there was a version history somewhere that lists the changes that differentiates the verisons. Smile

Maybe the anomalous behavior of the heavy nuclear bomb losing effectiveness at really long ranges was addressed.

I can play with people now!

Well, I tried it with 3 players. It worked fine, but my computer started getting laggy near the end, and at the same time, one player retired. Then it went out of sync. Whether it was the frame rate issue again, or the other guy leaving, I don't know. Hopefully the third player leaving caused it, and we do have the "out of sync error" mostly fixed.

Use a download manager and the alternative link. Downloads from the primary link have frequently been unreliable.

It's all just rather forceful, there are open mirrors out there... found that out by having to register here.

If you provided this mod so that anyone could download it, you would easily have more people playing/bug testing/fixing it.

You could even add "Go Home" links to the installer. I just don't inherently see the point of hiding something in a hidden forum, forcing people to register in order to download it.

I have tested the mod, and it is a good mod.. if you have twelve hours to spare to get everything in place.

Yes, I can easily install homeworld 2 with its patch in far less time than complex. Complex does revamp and add alot though, so it isn't small. Wink

Torrent is in the attachment. I used open trackers and they like to timeout sometimes. So watch if they will timeout when you begin downloading and use "Update Trackers" if required.

i mean i remember some complex version where i started some kind of carrier being responsible for a small amount of troops in the beginning. and then i was forced to fight and research to make my rank higher and get more troops etc.

i dont like to serve. i want to be able to get as much troops and ships as i can in the very beginning (like in original version).

I disagree. Once the main download is in place others are free to spread the mod as they wish. Torrents are blocked by many an isp these days. It is up to the torrent users to feed the torrrents imo, and then to keep them alive by seeding.

DOWNLOAD STOPPED, THE 8.0 COMPLETELY MISSES THE INFO/HELP SCREENS THAT EXPLAINS THE GAME FEATURES, IT'S DUE TO A CORRUPTED LOCALIZATION TABLE, 8.1 UP IN 6 HOURS, I'M SORRY
That's the reason I always wait few days before upload torrent/moddb or other servers after the first official release. Now there's a torrent around and it's corrupted, this can compromise Complex itself, not all regulary comes here to be updated on last releases.
I recommend to break that torrent, the 8.1 will be on-line in 6 hours.

A newbie I am. But I was able download it at 67kb rate.

Got through with my first defeat. So far so good. I think I clumsily figured out the power aspect. But even in a game 2 on 2 (Hiig vs V-AI) with AI set to easy I got my rear handed to me. Good AI.

I play Pirates, TFS and Star Trek. I like them all but Complex is a much deeper mod.

I encountered some strange ship behavior earlier today on a 1v1 AI. I attacked with 2 BS, 2BC on a Vaygr Command Fortress and when the Ion Cannons of the BC's hit it, it started moving with extreme speed (almost 600m/s, mostly between 400m/s-500m/s) towards the BC that hit first...I should not mention that 1 hit destroyed all my ships from where it passed, but it also made some nice pirrouettes before it finally exploded. It seemed like it got berserk when that mere BC (no matter it had 460exp) dared to hit it and decided to punish it disobeying the rules of good behavior... Laughing
Another less minor incident is when my BS's arrived the enemy Flagship and at some point it also moved fast (not in low HP's, and not THAT fast as the CF - like 150m/s) and healed itself 20% of its lost HP. I thought it happened because it left some defensive module's range but there was only 1 guardian near it.

great job y'all !

there's just one thing that disturbs me: why must the larger Hiigaran vessels earn XP before building enormous weapons (especially the BC) ?... If I remember correctly, the Vaygr ships do not need Xp to build anything... which makes them really faster in base development -well, faster than the Hiigarans, at least.
Plus, it forces me to choose the Vortex more than the BC or BS when I play them. But it's not really a problem since the Vortex is definetely a Weapon of Mass Destruction... ^^

Complex 8.1 is a must-have, thx again for the good work ! Very Happy

Finally got this installed and everything looks nice after 6 hours of play.

My questions:

1. Is there a specific place to post bugs??? So far the only one I found was for the Shuttle - when I set it to lay mines they trail out of the deployer (or whatever the mechanism is called) and hit the bottom of the Shuttle and explode. As such no mines get laid just the Shuttle takes its own damage.

2. Also how come as a Hiigaran I can't find where to build the good ole Battlecruiser? The AI had no problem showing up with 3 and destroying my Mothership in a matter of seconds Sad

3. Is there a manual or post for all the new ships - the choices are almost mind boggling and kind of hard knowing what to build first?

4. Oh and the Outpost seems kinda useless other than providing radiation protection. The guns take forever to destroy even a Flak Frigate. And no way to move or upgrade the Outpost? Seems kinda useless.

Again, thanks for all the hard work!

That's why i hate residential antivirus software. They do their work fine, but they often provide nearly the same functionality as viruses themselves:
1) They are hanging somewhere in your system, doing something, consuming resources.
2) It's often impossible to stop them, only by deletion.
3) They do stuff, ignoring your opinion.
4) They cause random conflicts with other software, and it's hard to find the culprit.

the program doesnt like this and says your computer is open to attack so i did this for the last five minutes of downloading- it didnt seem to do any damage and c8.1 seems to work although i dont have time tonight to play a game... if this doen't work i'll let everyone know- and if anyone else has the same problems perhaps this info here might help someelse... see how it goes Confused

Hello, I'm new to this mod, the only mod I really ever played and loved was the old PDS mod back in the day. Looking to get back into the game though with the new amazing mods on offer. I am downloading 8.1 currently, and was curious if any of the existing content is updated at all, such as textures, effects, models, etc? I'm sure I'll find out, but thought I'd ask in case it wasn't immediately apparent. Thanks and nice work from what I've seen!

FYI, I downloaded 8.1 at my local coffee shop/internet cafe. No issues with installation or gameplay so far. Using download accelerator plus, the entire download took about 55 minutes (more or less).

Will the upgrade that will be issued on the 27th be in the form of a patch or a full multimeg download?

Many, many thanks to Beghins and the rest of the design team.

Agree, the day a new good space (or not space) RTS will go out Complex will die, unfortunately there's nothing to play around, so we're going to dev the 9 series.

Bless you man! For sure I thought, "GAWD another 4 hour download!"

And no offense, but why does it take 8 clicks from the email to get the file???

1. The email sends me to a Complex logo page.
2. Click the logo takes me to a home page.
3. Click the "Download" link at the left side bar.
4. Takes me to a page with all the versions for download.
5. Click "Complex 8.2.1."
6. Redirect to a page, the forum main, with the Newsbox at the top. The first thing I see is a link that reads, "Complex 8.2.1 download:
Only registered users can see links on this board!

" --- link sends me this topic.
7. At the first post I click the link that reads, "Complex 8.2.1 Windows
Only registered users can see links on this board!

"
8. Redirect to the actual download page!!!

Shouldn't #8 be #1?

HOLY COW really?

I like it, I like it. Mentioned this many times over I appreciate all the hard work but come on. Can't we get to the file in less time than it takes to eat a hamburger and some fries?

Hello Beghins love your work (Your teams work) and have been playing Complex for many years now only reason why I still play homeworld 2 with some of my friends...

I tried doing it my self but I cant figure it out or get it working that is if its not too much trouble I would really appreciate it... Love the work on the AI also gives a nice challange and hope you keep improving it and making it harder as my friends and I love playing against the AI... Cant wait for 8.2.3 to come out...

i dont know if this have undesired effects but al least i cant play this way. if someone know more about running opengl vs directX maybe can trow a word.

bad news. the problem shows again playing whit -gl so it doesnt fix anything.

but i got something. the graphic glitch starts when you look the hit point of any ion based weapon after a vgr ion cruiser appears in game.

Oh great Complex gods we thank you for this latest instalment of epicness.

No really a ton of thanks to the team for this latest update. It really is an exceptional quality mod that has been produced and will be downloaded and installed post haste.

Will donate what I can again on payday. Smile

I just received my HomeWorld 2 CD in the mail today. A fresh unopened and working key.

It has been patched and I am uploading the Complex Mod as I write.

It is also very curious and a somewhat unrelenting feeling that in the CD Key sequence one set of the key is MAN6.

In religious terms MAN has seemingly been given the number six. I am not certain what such a sequence is meant to invoke. But it seems that a possible new entity has arrived with the shipment.

Someone had better check the transport that it came in on for any signs of viral contagions.

I will let you know what I think of the Mod come Monday.


Complex Module delivery status is at 24.25 minutes away....and counting.

I can almost see the sun reflecting off of the transport command bridge canopy.

Edit : Okay its installed and running. Although I did get a message about my vide card drivers being obsolete. Not possible since this is a new machine.


I absolutely love the Mod and I only played it for about five minutes.

EXCELLENT WORK! Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation out of ten Exclamation

I hAve a couple of spare copies of HW2 in the cupboard as well- they are sitting waiting for my son as soon as he is old enough to play.

When i found Homeworld 2 in a game shop i was so happy but then when i came home it missed manual = key so i returned Evil or Very Mad

However fate semed to love me as 2 weeks after that i found another Homeworld 2 (talk about luck) and this one had everything while also being in perfect condition (un opened) Very Happy

All this happend in 2010 so im amazed how lucky i was. After that day i just loved homeworld and a month later i discovered this and i must say i give my hat to the mod team for how good the work is and i will gladly purhcase your beta of you own game when it comes Laughing

It will generate a Complex8.3.1.exe in the same directory, you install it and play.
Patch's size is 5mb only.

8.3.1 was a bit harder then previous version. The AI is much more aggressive and rushes in huge numbers (I only play in expert mode, against 3-4 AIs). Trying to download 8.3.2 but it's soooo sssssllloooowwwww.

I want to thank the Beghins team. I would buy this game if you guys package it and sell it. I wish you would make Homeworld 3, I think you guys could more then pull it off.

@zsuriam
ModDB link does work, testing it now. It's coming in at 1.0 MB/sec.
The download link on ModDB is not terribly intuitive.
Click on the 'Complex 8.3.3' title under the movies. This will bring you to the gamefront host page.

I don't follow your logic here. What incentive is there for someone to pay to download (via an Italian language PayPal link (lots of people don't use PayPal, especially those under 1Cool(many others wouldn't necessarily understand Italian)) when the mod is available without payment at a greater download speed elsewhere?

I can't understand this, because license holders are not intressted in what you tell but in what they see at a download.

What incentive is there for someone to pay to download (via an Italian language PayPal link (lots of people don't use PayPal, especially those under 1Cool(many others wouldn't necessarily understand Italian)) when the mod is available without payment at a greater download speed elsewhere?


I think that charging for the download could be counterproductive at this stage.

And how should someone without an forum account know that? There is only the "paid" link to paypal, and no word about free and other places for download. So this just looks like trying to make the ppl who wants do download it pay for it.
You have to take the perspektive of an user that is not already part of this for several years, because that is the view of the publishers, and that is the direction where trouble will come from.

"The file you have selected (Complex833.exe) is not available via any mirrors. Please check back shortly as our servers update every 5 minutes. To access more download mirrors we encourage you to join the community, otherwise please be patient and keep trying."

after i logged in it says:

Ok, let me try it with other words.
Way is there no real Free link at the official Site, why is there no link to moddb or the others?
Because you want to force the people to pay for it.
But it is fine, just do what you do, as long as you can live with the consequences.
I believe the reactions here will show how this will end.

I think, for clarity, that you ought to explain this above the first link, that it leads to a paypal page where a donation can be made.

@rorik
ModDb link works for me. Tested it yesterday, and again just now.

However, the official link now leads to here:

Hey rorik: same thing here, it's strange tried both complex and rearm.

Weeks ago I donated 24 Euros to your project, because i think that a great work must be rewarded.

I was a happy and supportive Complex user, but i don't like this new direction, sorry. I doubt this barely can be called donations any more, it would be more like a payment for many people.

Time will tell that consecuences this will have in mod popularity, but i can talk for me and tell you I have changed from a very happy user to a disgusted one.

I know, it may be the donations were few in number or quantity but for me it was worth to donate from time to time, now i feel forced to... and i don't like very much this feeling.

Just my opinion on this subject.

Oh, and the MODDB link, as stated by others, do not work, i get this window every time:

Beghins, If you want the people to pay for your server then please ask them to do so and don't force them. Many of them didn't use the original download link since the speed is for an unknown reason very slow if you don't have an accelerator. Maybe ask for donations on your main page if you have money problems. Give the people who don't know complex or are at least not a forum member a clear explanation. Maybe you can give a link to the complex page on moddb.

A rating of 29% isn't bad for a mod for a game that is almost 13 years old. To raise that percentage rate I think the following must occur:

Release the Map Editor used to create maps for Homeworld Complex so new maps can be generated by the users.

A tutorial on how to use the map editor.

my opinion:

since Complex 9 is a major breakthrough, we should pay for it. i mean, come the .... on, these people really earned it. and leave aside payments for Complex 8.x.x.
so, it doesn't have to be a price of company game, it won't work...but a 10 - 15 eur it should. i guess they can't legally ask for money as they are not actually selling a product and they are not a company. so the donation system should be in place for...10 - 15 eur.
but let this be known in advance:
PEOPLE, COMPLEX 9 WILL REQUIRE DONATIONS AND WILL BE LAUNCHED ON...
so we all get used to the idea and have the time to put the money together until then. i would gladly do so as i loved the game and i love what they did with Complex so far.

Keep in mind there are always ways to pay for things on the internet - if you don't have a bank account or a debit card or credit card, you can always use cash to buy pre-paid cards through most banks and almost every single major retailer. Likewise, I believe paypal also allows purchase of pre-paid paypal cards.

"Unable to pay for things on the internet" isn't a very good excuse, unless you're truly broke, or young enough to not have work or access to payment methods like bank accounts.

If that's the case, I understand how you feel - but remember that there are ALWAYS alternatives.

Post subject: Complex 8.4.2 had crash on save bug present in 8.4.1 fixed?
Greetings.

First, I'm glad to see you guys are back and running, been trying to come here as usual, but somehow you phpBB forum had some MySql problem. Well good to see you guys are up and running again.

I don't know if many of you knew but Complex 8.4.1 has a bug causing it to crash whenever you try to save a skirmish game. I've tried several variations of the game I was trying to save, and in all times Complex crashed and couldn't save, the gujking shipyard was docking lots of fighters and corvettes. This could be the reason, I do not know for sure. Whenever I tried to save without docking with the gujking I had no problems.
(If you want I can post the save game, and instruct how to replicate the situation.)
(Dump files are present in the links bellow, didn't posted mine, because they contained the same information with small variations like installation paths, etc, no need to repeat.)
To tell the truth this is the firstbug I've experienced with Complex since I started playing it, version 7. And I played it on both Windows and Linux machines without a hitch, I don't know how you guys and girls make it possible, but it is very surprising since Homeworld wasn't programmed thinking about anything else besides Windows.

Anyway, I was looking to know if anyone has experienced the issue mentioned with 8.4.2, or if the development team is aware and has fixed this problem in the new version?


Thanks and Good Dev days.



PS: No, this is not the bug where Complex crashes during battle after few minutes as mentioned before. This is another bug.

Note:
8.4.1 crash on save forum threads

Bugs in 8.4.1 have been fixed (the terrible save bug too), just wait for MoDB, 8.4.2 is uploaded, only needs authorization.
Pls report any other bugs in 8.4.2, but I think now the release should be very stable.

This is great news. I will download it soon and give it a go, then I will be able to resume my skirmish and better see the new changes implemented, the support frigate and new ship class organization, among others. Really good idea by the way.
Well, terrific piece of art you people have made, great work.
I will be waiting for Complex 9. Good luck Smile

Jeah, Moddb sucks. Now i can't download the file even with explorer, which workd for the previous release. I think they are directing us to download that desura thing.


But i have a solution, my work for others:

Click the desura button instead of download, then the blue button in the window, close the window and the normal download link will work. I think the site belives we have desura installed. Crapy site...

This is not a moan (honest) just an observation.

I was happy to make a donation to the project because I've clocked many hours playing this great mod. The donation also gives me the advantage to download new releases from the Complex server before they are made available via other links. As per the homeworld2complex.com site "at this way you have a fast and secure link"

I don't get speeds over 150 KB/sec. I don't think you/one can claim this to be "fast" Smile It takes over 2 hours to download a new release from the Complex server, and my first attempt to download 8.4.3 crashed with 20 minutes to go. Crying or Very sad

If that's the speeds that are available, then fair enough. But i don't think you should call it fast, it's not.

Patches:
A change to the way my patches work: i'm now patching the .big file directly, so do not uninstall 8.3.3, 8.4.1 or 8.4.2.
1) Put patch .exe and .bat files into your homeworld 2 directory;
2) Run .bat;
3) Wait while the patch updates the complex's .big file(console window will disappear when it's done);
4) Update your desktop shortcut: just change Complex8??.big part to Complex843.big in the shortcut's properties.

Well, this is disappointing. I came home today, after learning of this mod, hoping to quickly download and test it. Instead the download link goes to a Italian Paypal page (WTF?) with instructions to click a button that doesn't exist.

Then, I move to the forums. Find a link, thankfully, to this thread. Can't read it - need to register. Again - why? Login window doesn't show a "register" link, only lost password. Nice.

I understand you want recognition for your work, and I'm pretty sure it's a very extensive mod and you deserve payment for your hours. If I like this mod, I would donate. But because I was made to jump through so many hoops, it's less likely for me.

Please simply create a normal link on your page. If I were to show this to my friends, all would click it away, telling me they don't (want to) understand what's going on, and who can blame them? I'm just a persistent S.O.B. who wants to share my tale of getting the mod Wink

You make a good point about locating the 'register' button - it isn't as easy to find as it should be.
As to registering before access, that is not uncommon in forums.

Beghins,
I suggest adding instructions to the Mod making the Mod Release a Zip file so subscribers will know how to install the mod.

The reason I say this is because I installed the Mod a few nights ago but the icon did not appear on the desktop like it should have per the instructions.

I was also not able to find any executable file to launch Homeworld in any file either.

I uninstalled Homeworld several times and then reinstalled it completely 1.1 patch and all but nothing to ado was seen from the Homeworld Complex Mod.

as someone who's supported this mod in the past, forcing to paypal is kinda shady.

I realize you put a lot of time into this, and feel like you are owed something.

Making mods is about making the game the way you want to see it, this is an OLD game, and you already have the status of being one of the largest most comprehensive mods ever for the game. Don't ruin it now.

If you made something truly good, you have to have faith that it will be worth it. I never forced anyone to pay for the EX MOD (can't compare it to this, but its still a mod that was bigger then most) You know how many people donated for my efforts in that mod? Which btw was reviewed in PC GAMER magazine? Zero, Zilch, Nada....

But that didn't stop me from putting it on my Resume, and now have what most would consider a dream job in the IT field. It took about 5 years, but it was worth it.

You should take satisfaction in the fact that no one will probably ever make anything for this game that will even come close to this effort. You made the mod to end all mods in HW2.

The question now is, can you turn Minecraft (or some other game) into Homeworld 3

Got the same problem here. I can't download it from ModDB either, and trying to install it via Desura never works.

By the way, I'm not sure if there has been a change with this version or not, but PLEASE for the love of god offer an option to completely disable nebula/sun damage. This damage absolutely kills the enjoyable experience on my favourite maps that I used to play on previous versions.

I think I might just revert to an older version if this is something that doesn't plan on getting fixed.

It's seems that the download links to the latest files are being made hard to find as they are not clearly listed anywhere, and in fact the only clear download link takes you to PayPal with no prior indication that is the destination. If you are being up front and honest at least change the link to say donate instead of download. Otherwise it's just plain shady.

Regarding the moddb link, I think it's rather more of an oversight that the initial link to Complex is still to v9.0.1 rather than to 9.1, as opposed to a deliberate attempt to hide the file and force people to download the 9.0.1 version.. I do not have access to the moddb page, so I cannot change it.

Uhm... what annoys slightly is that you have to choose between matches that either go for "Destroy Mothership" or "Destroy All". The good old "Destroy Production" has been removed which means that (especially in matches against CPU) either the game will end prematurely (because they don't really defend Mothership well) or (almost) never because you have to hunt down every little spy and probe and collector... Mad

Also (i think) the amount of players for map "Solar System" is too small, by size and resources that map would easily support 6 (or more, but hey) players.

Not sure if this was the right place to post this, but uhm well... would be nice if you guys could work this out and release a version that would improve those things(?)

Anyways thanks for easily the most awesome mod ever, and for first making Homeworld 2 into the game that it should have been from the start and by release, and then taking it beyond that line even.

You have some good suggestions there—right place to post—more than 6 players on the Sol map would be nice, but 6 is the limit of the game engine, I believe.

Hunting down all those probes and errant collectors is indeed a nuisance!

Hello ComplexTeam
downloaded the 9.1 file and installed it but after installation there is no 9.x Big file in the hw2\data directory.
Without this file it can´t be started.
I´ve followed the instructions and in these was noted that you´ve to copy the Big file to the Data directory

--If you have Complex in the big format, copy the file Complex9x.big in your ...\Homeworld2\data installation directory (example C:\Program Files\Sierra\Homeworld2\data\Complex9x.big);--

There is no Big File ican copy or am i clumpsy?

It's not abandoned, They are waiting for the HW remastered that gear box is making. They want to see if the new engine will be any good for mods. If it is they will continue the mod on the new release, according to the Complex website. I have faith in GearBox to do the remastered version right. The head of the Company spearheaded the acquisition of The Homeworld title and I paraphrase "I want it to be as close to the original game that we all loved". There may also be a Collectors edition with a number of possible goodies. So look forward to that.

This is the first release of the 9 series, and the decade for the Complex Mod.
Many additions to the game, new units, new features and better graphical aspect, but the more important improvements have been done on stability, gameplay and performance.
Every duplicate ship/subsystem have been removed, redundant functions cleaned, lagging scripts revisited, a lot of bugs fixed.
The game has been balanced to reach the better space battle experience.
I hope you enjoy all this work!

Several questions:

1. does complex do anything other then put the big file in it? When i try other mods, i dont have sounds, only music.

2. is there any good way for vaygr to transport a big fleet? On big maps only hyperjump is possible, on hiigaran side there is the big one.

3. hiigaran have far more options and features (level up battleships, space station,ships, atomic bombs...). On very big maps for me Hii are advanced but im not a pro. Is there a story behind that?
ALC - Sat Mar 07, 2015 4:19 pm
Post subject:
Answers (as far as I know!):
1. Just the .big file is installed.
2. There is no big transport for Vaygr
3. Hiigaran have more features because they have been the focus of additions so far. Also it is the Hiigaran ethos, more micromanagement. Vaygr tend to have more integrated systems on their fleets. They are a more 'basic' race.
Numrollen - Sat Mar 07, 2015 7:14 pm
Post subject:
Thx ALC, helpful as always. Wink

2. Vgr Sinner would be a perfect transporter. ATM i dont see the point for this ship. It can produce but there are cheaper ones out there. There is too much micro for transporting stuff around with Vaygr. Perhaps the "upgrade for faster repair" should upgrade also the slots availible on all ships.

3. That ok with micro and basic. But both should have some specials for the endgame. Hiigaran have fast super capital and more. If the basic Vaygr shouldnt have micros, then they should have the opposit. Yes their best super capital is a beast but slow and wont stand against all the features Higg have. Its very easy to destroy his drive and then he is useless. Perhaps with a new class named super duper capitals Wink I will post my ideas when there is a "Complex 10" capter for the new one.

I love complex, i like both factions and i will buy the remastered only because of complex.

to @Beghins or other admins,
Hi, I have been playing complex 9.1 a lot with friends after it released. and I have been translating complex mod for japanese and chinese community 'cause this mod doesn't have other languages version.
Also, I bought the newly released Homeworld & Homeworld2 Remastered series last month.
so, I tried playing complex mod on "Homeworld2 Remastered" version 1.0 see if it is compatible. At first it keep crashing when i launch the game. then i ask a few modding friends to teach me how to adjust it a bit so that it can load normally. it loads fine now, most of the time. The graphics,lighting,explosion etc in this version are far more beautiful than that of Complex in HW2. however, the game still crashes while too many dustclouds appears/ when playing in multiplayer(sometime) Since i don't have enough knowledge of modding, i don't know how to make it completely compatible with "Homeworld2 Remastered" version.
from my community, many teenagers(around 10-20 years old) have heard of Homeworld 2 now because of different new beautiful trailers, videos on utube, advertisement of the remasterted version etc. some of them even bought it like i did. then they have heard of different fun and deep mods (like complex) and want to try it. however it's not too compatible with "Homeworld2 Remastered" version. and it's not easy to find the original Homeworld 2 to buy now. they want to enjoy this mod but it doesnt seem to have an easy way to do so. I wish to help them... however, i don't have enough knowledge to fix the compatibility problem.
So , I wish to ask / I wonder, if there will be future release of complex. If there will be, can it be compatible with "Homeworld2 Remastered" too? thanks a lot. (If you need help on translation on japanese and chinese language in future releases, you may send me message find me too. I can provide help and it's completely free of charge)

Well complex 9.1 is not compatible with homeworld remastered. You can play it only on homeworld2 classics. However the classic version is also remastered and is released as patch 1.0.
So complex will be also buggy and crashy on homeworld 2 classic because it require patch 1.1
It is kinda confusing i recommend you to simple wait until remastered version of new complex is released.

Which is probably in September this year so about half a year.
From experience with software development it is more realistic to expect it to be released around the new year.
So far 9.1 worked with my classic HW2 fine.

You go to "steam" where it finds your game, you make a right click on the one and creates a shortened on the desktop

Then this shortcut must be edited "see the instructions of lazer72"

Well, I've given this a few months, in case later updates to Complex might have solved my crash issue. Latest version at the time of this post crashes in the exact same manner that I first experienced. From what I'm seeing with other people's replies, I guess I'm not the only one.

I'm going to just stick to my original Homeworld 2 disc. What's the latest Complex version that works with the original HW2? Not the HW2 Classic that comes with the remastered edition, but the actual original from 2003. And more importantly, how can I get it running without Desura?

I noticed that the big file is actually "Complex133.big" and not "Complex13.big" as stated in the readme. I corrected the shortcut accordingly, but the game crashes.

Vanilla game appears to work when I use the normal link.

Edit: I just wanted to add that we did fix the issue. Oddly, it took a full reinstall of the GoG Version of HWRM before things worked. Not sure if any other tinkering had been done with the build prior to that first attempt to install Complex, but it's working just fine now.

Scoob.

Greetings again!

First things first- thanks for keeping this game and mod alive! You are the best! Been waiting for Kushan race for a long time.

But I've got some strange bug or an error with units cap.
I've have increased units cap to have a larger fleet to fight, however, closer to end phase of the game, when I've had a decent fleet, for some reason all ships' icons becomes red in a build menu and I can't construct even a probe anymore.

Is there any parameter in scripts for like a general or total population or how many ships can be on a map?

Thank you in advance!

There is a hard-coded limited in the game engine that I believe limits your fleet to 250 combined units...however you are able to spawn as many as you wish through scripting.

Oh, well, I thought there is some kind of hard limit.

Could anyone give a tip how to modify this script, please?

What would you like to do, exactly? Feel free to PM me if you would prefer.

As far as I recall, there is a limit on the number of total objects of all types that can exist on a map.

Is there an option to increase this limit somehow? I'll be very thankful if you could say which file has those limits, so I can modify it.

It is in the executable and so cannot be modified without a work-around.

So, it's not that easy to change those parameters.

Might be there is a point to check some mods, where unit cap is disabled?

Disabling the unit cap wil not override the maximum number of objects in a level limit, afaik.

Well, that's very sad. I enjoyed large fleet battles in HW 2 Complex, and this object limit in HWR is quite harmful to a gaming experience, especially when your rig can handle it.
