FX-Commander MOD 1.85--New Hope(released) by 9CCN

  1. #251
    Heck, you need to know how to play of course =P the best boarding stuff are upgraded Turanic boarding vettes since they can cloak.
    :::{Homeworld 2: FX. Building a new Hw2 since '08.}:::{@ ModDB}:::{@ RelicNews}

    (no exclamation marks were abused/overused when this word was written.)

    Boarding is not recommended for any race apart from the Turanic, as Eirikr accuratly described the cloaking trick. Besides blasting them is more fun.

    The only way to do is is set your fleet to Passive, carefully take out all the support around the ship you want to capture and swarm it with a maxed out salvette swarm. I think capture vessels have the luxury of occupying top spot on the killlist, but if I'm wrong you can draw its fire with ships that have a higher priority to the NPC's.

  3. #253
    well hehe it seems when you play progenitor dreadnoughts take the cake on that list... when I hyperspaced on in battle everyship stopped focusing on my capture ships and went right for the dreadnought. I managed to capture a destoyer with ease hehe. Well not only that after that another wave arrived and I move all my ships after them leaving one sole destoyer alone and unable to escape

    ouch black screen of death...

    can be uv somehow fubared ur dll's, no point in poking about then, remove the game using ur software panel and make damn sure there's not a trace of it, then reinstall it all...

    a good way to prevent stuff like this from happening is installing the game twice, one vanilla and one u can use to mod about in, if summin goes wrong u just paste over the essential files and that usually does it.

    If u can still run HW2vanilla id suggest redownloading the mod from a diff location (dont know where u got it, some more... unorthodox sites distribute corrupted mods) again remove whatever trace there is and do a careful install.

    On a mac. .big file availability?

    This mod looks spectacular. I am very impressed.

    But, I haven't gotten a chance to try it out yet, since the mod is in .exe format.

    If anyone could host the .big files themselves, it should be enough for me. I shouldn't need the filepath extension, as I'm using modrunner.

    Thanks a lot!

    Why do i keep getting error messages when i'm trying to add a hardpoint to the HeavyMover or to any of the new models ?

    I want to add a new gunturret and i'm useing HardED wonderfull as it may be,i'm still...up here... floating...and no one even seems to notice.

  13. #263
    @Daimoth: There are 3 .BIG files you need for 1.72..I'll see if I can get time to host them.
    @Adamstrange: Maybe you should leave the mod as it is and make your own

  14. #264
    I am...for myself.

    Thats why i'm trying to add the Hardpoint ?

  15. #265
    Thanks a lot, Eirikr! I eagerly await!

    @adamstrange: That's a problem with HardEd. Use CFHodEd instead and don't drag this thread further off-topic please.

  17. #267
    @Daimoth: i'm uploading the .ZIP file as we speak. It contain 3 files, and is about 180 MB big. If you have any troubles, comments or other request please ask so at our clan-forums.

    On-topic: Anything about FX 1.73 known? Will it have another tutorial since I really enjoyed the Eden one.

  18. #268
    Hmm, where would I go to DL those .big files?

    Also, thank you very much!

  19. #269
    Since Filefront is down I'm uploading them to sendspace far 11% done. When it's done you'll receive an email with the download link included

  20. #270
    Downloading now. I'll let you know if it works.

    You're the nicest guy I found on a Homeworld mod forum by the way.

  21. #271
    Mod works well, except for the Turanic Raiders. If anyone chooses the Raiders, Homeworld2 crashes. Ideas?

    Edit: Also, the eve scenario crashes, too.

  22. #272
    Maybe it's since you use a MAC or some invaled file..anyways I did what I could by sending you the files, maybe someone else can help out regarding this

  23. #273
    I've ran into files in the past that have crashed a mac. Mainly weapon and certain background files.

  24. #274
    i hate to sound noobish, dont kill me for this , buthow do you install this mod?

  25. #275
    you need to place the.BIG file in the Homeworld2/Data directory. then you need to make a shortcut with this command line in the shortcut's properties C:"Location of Homeworld 2" -mod "name of .big file

    remember the big file cannot have spaces. Good luck newcomer ^^

  26. #276
    FX 1.72

    The shortcut should have this field at "target":

    "C:\Program Files\Sierra\Homeworld2\Bin\Release\Homeworld2.exe" -mod FXMOD172.big -locale FXMODLANG

    Is anyone else having the problem of only Hiigaran and Vaygr being able to build resource collectors? The just plain don't show up in the build list for any of the new races. The only other mods I have installed are in .big format and there's no extra mod files in my data folder so I know it's not a conflict with another one, I've tried making a new profile, and I've redownloaded and reinstalled the mod so I know it's not a corrupt file issue but nothing has made any difference.

    Anyone have any ideas on what the problem is?

  30. #280

    Will they have an infection beam or something that resembles that? (like a EMP beam or something)

  31. #281

    Do you have screenshots of Somtaaw Destroyer and Carrier? Those two are my personal favorites of whole HW series ships.

    I meant my infected swarmer, plus this one look A LOT nicer than the ingame port. I would really like to see that new one as long as there aren't a bunch when you build them (lag and what-not for older pc's).

  38. #288
    Sorry guys but implementing infection beams in Hw2 is thougth to be imposible (by people with much greater modding skills then me).

    However I look forward to the next version. Like mr. Who I also want to see the Somtaaw carrier and destroyer. Please.

    I don't think that an infection beam would be possible, but you could have an infector ship that boards ships very quickly, or uses pods with a different animation.

  40. #290
    that is a very good idea.

    Thank you very much, it was on-the-fly too. ^_^

  42. #292
    Well you could change the Higaran marine frigate's beam to red, that would give a deacent efect, but still infected ships would look normal, besides the infected ship would probably use the Naarn Directive and destroy or damige the ship.

    Is it posible that instead of capturing the ship you damige it ?? You could have the infection beam as a low fireing high damige weapon.

  43. #293
    with the idea of Total Entropy, it could ahve the sound of the convertion in hwc when u zoom on of infecting ships it has people screaming.

    just an idea

    infection beam as a weapon is not a bad idea either ;-)

    In wanilla HW2 when you finished capturing the carrier or shipyard, the target was not captured but disabled instead.
    You may use (capture) infection as disable weapon that make ship inactive for few minutes before ship will mannage to deal with infection.

  45. #295
    i thought the dreadnaught or sawntaw fleet was already in fx mod
    (kadeshi ion crusier) is there gunna be different modals as well?

    You could make it like an EMP, to disable the ship until the emergency Hot & Soapy Water subsystem kicks in.

    A low fireing, high yield attack would maybe work large ships, but if your going for a marine frigate it would be vastly overpowered.

  47. #297
    or u remember the cruise missile?

    u might have torp frig with cruise missile launchers

  48. #298
    Well as I remember only the heavy cruiser and the mothership had infection beams. So a high yield weapon or heavy EMP should not be a problem.

    Ah the cruise missiles, I remember them well =) It would be nice to have them, although they would work best as suicide ships then acutual missiles.

  49. #299

    still, i guess the RS tree thing just doesnt work for me :/

  50. #300
    or modifly the pulser laser to be a infection beam like multi infector ship ;-)

    can u guy post on here please its been 2 days no1 posted
