I had this idea for an Ultra Complex Mod.
Would it be possible to keep all the current upgrades of 5.5 plus setup the mod where you have to upgrade everything in the game ?
For example, none of the ships have weapons when they are built.
No pulsars,no guns,destroyers have no turrets...nothing.
You have to upgrade EVERYTHING.
strange...as wonderfull as it may be,i'm still...up here... floating...and no one even seems to notice.
that might be neat for a destroyer, custumize what kind of cannons it has, so you can have some regular one and then on the rear turrent build and ion cannon
I figure that this would be fun for those who like to play long drawn out games.
i love taking my time, but even in complex sometimes i feel rushed, my play stye in most games is build a strong economy and then attack with more troops then they ever could
There are some asteroids in some of the maps that are labeled "Mining Base" but even though there is an indication that you can dock into it,when you give an order to a collector to do so it will just hang around the MS.
Is this a bug in the game ?
Have you used the marine frigate to infiltrate the mining base ? You can only occupy the mining base with resource collectors after successful infiltration.Originally Posted by adamstrange
its labeled as an enemy so you have to cpture it, when you do though get ready for every enemy to attack the base, be sure you have a few battlecruisers gaurding it
Day of truth tomorrow!
will complex 6 come out wraped in golden paper... or will we be left to sit here and wish it had...
happy christmas in advance peeps!
~chuckles at Ash Shillar~ Yep, thats what I'm wondering too! Can't wait. hehe.
Either way. Happy holidays to those who are celebrating ~cheers
well i suppose it wasnt to be... ah well... i suppose... *sniff* i could... *sniff* always hope...
please mister... its so cold...
that and other sad stuff lol.
neways! im hoping it'll be out soon..
enjoy new year!!
This mod is greatly entertaining and appears to be quite useable in MP. I especially like the radius-based effects on special modules-- it gives more of a reason to risk a carrier in combat.
Only thing I don't like about this mod is that it lags like hell in multiplayer games.
eh Az :O wanna try a match?
Sure send me a message on xfire or hamachi when you want to.
Azrael what do you mean it lags in MP? we have played quite often few months ago and its ok(at least now when my PC is good enough)
Ciao, speaking with the team we have a release date, and it is 12 January 2008.
The final beta test will start on 6 January 2008 and it will be public in this forum.
The web site will be updated around first days of 2008.
Your wait has been long, but I'm sure you will be satisfied from the release.
Happy new year!

You mean January right? If so YAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!
Oh that's awesome news! Good stuff
I hate using l33t speak but:
Sweet. It's just last time I played comp-lex on muliplayer it lagged terribly.
I know I don't post much, but I pop my head in every now and then for an update as I've been wanting 6.0 for some time now lol.
Now I can't wait those few days for it to come out. Thanks for the update Beghins.
have to say this has to be one of the greatest and most populer mods out and i can wait till the next version is out thks guys for the due date
public beta..? today?? hmm... where?
oh.. this forum?? really? no... no i dont see anything...
ok seriously... your (hwcomplex team) works great. but your keeping to deadlines... isnt so much.
please let it be on time this time!! *doubts*
Yeah, well... don't hold your breath either... it's only about one year "late", after all...
HOLY CRUD !!! 146 pages of mod material ! This mod must be good, although I ain't going to try it. The videos and pics i've seen so far look great but take away my courage of playing it, gosh just the fire power displayed in the videos makes me feel tiny
To all who have sent my the mail for join the beta test, keep ready to receive the link for the beta today, instructions into the mail, I confirmed the release for the next Saturday.
i suppose the fact that your (beghins) acctually on the forun is a good sign lol
good luck with the testing stuff!!
*takes a deep breath* (il need it for the week long wait!)
shame im not one of testers i dont want to wait another week
Well, Complex 6.0 Beta has been delivered to testers, only one week of hard play, good luck.
You will read impressions and so on in this forum, testers are from H2 community.
Saturday, if the beta test goes as it should go, you will play Complex 6.0 and I will drink a much expensive red bottle.
I just downloaded Complex 5.5 and followed the directions to install it. I try playing it and it comes up with a "Conflict with disk emulator software detected" error. Has anyone else ended up with this error? I have the english version, patched and am running windows vista home premium.
Conflict with disk emulator software detected usually happens when some variant of SecuROM detects that you've got Daemontools emulating the disk in question.
As homeworld 2 is neither a SecuROM supporting product, nor something you'd be running an ISO for anyways, the error is likely unrelated.
That all said, HAVE you set up your Complex 5.5 shortcut properly?
If you haven't, it might be trying to do something wierd, but I wouldn't be able to tell you, as I've no experience with windows vista.
Disable any disk emulating software and you should be fine.
ok, I just begun fun, here is first screen (as beta testers are allowed to show you some game) My first screen.
And... what I can say for beginning... looks amazing, tons of options, years, resources, Mothership reports almost like it did in first mission of HW (drives online... and so on, technical stuff), it took a moment to build that ship on screen - research station, 1 trip of my harvesters. More impressions later
I'm pretty sure i followed the read me to the letter, this is the path i have it set at for the shortcut
"C:\Program Files\Sierra\Homeworld2\Bin\Release\Homeworld2.exe" -mod Complex55.big
nor do i have any disk emulating software active, so im not sure whats up. and the other shortcut to another mod i have on it worked perfectly till i tried putting this mod on and now it has the same error as well as the original shortcut to the unmodded version itself
Well, I'm a very new player to Homeworld serie (I just order the two games today) and I'm really amazed by the community work. All I see is fabulous, excellent work everyone.
I've just a little interrogation: is this mod only for multiplayer or also for solo?
both, no campaign though, only skirmish and online.
Chronox: Any diskcopy software running, resident or even only installed?
Babbo: I have Magic iso installed but thats it.
Well been playing Complex 5.5 for a while and still havent fiqured out why I get CTDs they occur randomly.
could happen at launh of game then could happen after an hour or more.
Have changed memory..Checked and double checked all hardware. uninstalled game and reinstalled . Updated drivers
tried everything to no avail still get random crashes.
Even when a saved game is load still crashes at around the same time the orginal game crashed even tried not building anything still crashed.
Any ideas ?
Its just inconsistancies with some stuff somewhere within the 5.5 Complex big file. Most people do get CTD's with this mod, I know I do.
The best thing to do is wait til this Saturday for 6.0
Hopefully all the kinks will be worked out
hopefully 6.0 will work, cant wait!
You may try to uninstall that Magic thing, Chronox.
nope, that didn't work either. im just gonna reinstall and save my game files somewhere
found out what the problem was, the 1.1 patch is what is causing the problem. i reinstalled it and it worked fine. i installed the patch and i get the error.

woo! finaly a fixed release date!!
loving the new screens on the site as well!
looking foward to "wasting" time on sunday!!
it took its time... but im sure it will be worth the wait
Complex 6.0 out this Sunday 01/13/08
The mod introduces a lot of new ships, in order to avoid complaints after the release the two ships below have been enclosed in Complex 6.0 without the consensus of the respective creators cause I never had replies to my sent mails.
So if someone has to claim something that's the moment, in this case I will take a few time to modify those ships otherwise I assume the consensus reached.
Chronox: yeah i know that happened to me when i wanted to play on my new vista computer casue i thaught it would be cool with all best grafics and that emulation thing happened to me, it took me awilt to figure out it was the patch, do you have vista cause i don the patch is vista friendly, so im stuck to playin on my outdated machine but its still good casuse this is an awesome mod
ZOMG, can't wait until tomorrow! This is better than Christmas!
my prob is that i upgraded to vista, so unless i can get a linux distro to work on my other hard drive and hope it works for that, Im up a creek
