    Good evening!

    I am not good at making mods. I have to admit I have wasted 4 nights after work trying to extract a .big file... I just am not good at these things.

    I would like to commission a modder to make a mod for me.
    I merely want the Kushan mothership to be able to move during single player campaign mode in Homeworld 1 Classic.
    Nothing more.

    I know it's part of the story and so forth, but spare me your speeches. I'm an old guy that played the original when it first released and I absolutely loved it when it came out.
    But the bloody ship couldn't move.
    Such a beautiful ship, could not even move.
    It broke my heart, and I know I'm not the only one.

    To me, that was like the Enterpise D not having an impulse drive. How ridiculous

    Now, I paid a modder "spoonfrog", bless their heart, $30 to make this very same mod for the HW1 Remastered version and it works perfectly but he doesn't seem to know much about editing the classic version.
    The mod he made is amazing.

    However I would love to see one made for the Classic version.
    I know the Remastered technically has better graphics, but there's something about the original that had a more... Anime feel? I don't know how to explain it but I just love the old graphics. Those were different times.

    Anyways, If one of you jolly good modders out there could help me out and build this mod for me, and post it over at the Steam workshop (Not before I reward you of course) well then you get a nice $30 Paypal reward coming your way.

    Cheers, and thank you!

      I have some questions about modding Homeworld: Cataclysm.
      If anybody could help me edit it so the energy weapons don't look like hundreds of photon torpedoes filling the screen, maybe make them look like plasma bolts or like bullets still, that would be amazing.

      I absolutely love Cataclysm but once you upgrade the guns to energy cannons, it looks so ridiculous. Like a late season episode of Deep Space 9.

      Not that I dislike DS9, I just really dislike the energy weapons effect. They cut that one out of HW2 and for good reason...

    What a classic game!
    i wish someone or some team would create a mod that is similar to the dawn of war, but it is on the void war... ship to ship battles at space...

    but still the home world is one of the BEST RTS game i ever played... :)

    the game works on windows 7...if you put it in compatibility mode (windows nt service pack 5) it will work on opengl but if you don't want to use the compatibility mode you can just use software renderer...if you don't use compatibility mode it won't work on opengl or direct3D
