1.05 is the version needed to play mods, so you should be okay there.

If you're still seeing Taiidan ships, my guess is that the files aren't in the right place. The mod folders and files need to be in the Homeworld directory; for example, when you go to your Homeworld folder (the default is something like C:/Sierra/Homeworld), you should be seeing an "R2" folder from the mod alongside the original game files like "homeworld.big".

Yeah, my guess is that you've got the files inside an extra folder i.e. homeworld\raider\R2... instead of homeworld\R2...

That's usually the culprit when that happens...

Greetings,

I have all the folders in the correct places. I noticed that the ReadMe says that the folders MultiPlayer and nis should not be included. I tried with/without and still no change. The folders and file I have in my homeworld directory are:

etg
MultiPlayer
nis
p1
p3
r1
r2
AutoLock.txt
binkw32.dll
Computer 1_DIED_STATS.txt
Computer 2_DIED_STATS.txt
Computer 3_DIED_STATS.txt
devstats.dat
English.script
EULA.txt
Homeworld(the little internet hyperlink)
Homeworld.big
homeworld.cfg
homeworld.exe
outpostsymbol.Ico
RAModV0_7ReadMe.txt
textures.ll
teamcolors.script

If there are any files missing or if need be remove some, plese say so. This mod looks and sounds awesome, and since my favorite race are the Turanic Raiders, I am very anxious to play it.

Go Raiders!

Well, that all looks right. Let me ask you this--when you go to play, are you loading a saved game, or starting a new skirmish? RA is technically only multi-player, and Homeworld has a way of not recognizing any changes made to it if you load a game saved before said changes were made. Just wanting to be sure... :)

Greetings,

I am starting a new game every time. It always appears to be the Taiidan.

I'd have to say that the mod is about as done as it's going to get. Really, the only thing we were going to add was team colors, and there's just something about that process that we could just never figure out. It was such a minor thing, it just wasn't worth messing with as we were ramping up to HW2...

...and then HW2 was such a disappointment, and the modding was annoying, and we just never got back to it...

Personally, i think theres not much else to change, but you could add a raider scout to the team select menu rather than Taidan. But i agree there minor things, and HW2 modding can be much more detailed, if incredibly difficult and annoying. I haven't had the time to get/play many games and still have to purchase HW2, but from what i've heard its amazing.

I have stuck with Homeworld on a self-promise to beat it before buying HW2, alas its been three years, and i'm gonna cave in. (Homeworld campaign is supposed to be better than HW2 campaign from what i've heard) :) any way good luck with your now discontinued modding...

?

You may want to clarify your request a bit. I'm not sure what you're getting at.
