Homeworld1 Conversions
These mods either change Homeworld 2 into Homeworld1, or use races and elements from the first game.
 
Homeworld: Empires
(Kadeshi Mod)
This work in progress mod incorporates the religious Kadeshi single player campaign race from the original Homeworld into Homeworld 2. The Kadeshi were those twitchy guys armed with the swirling clouds of Swarmer ships, those ferocious Multi-Beamed Frigates and the impressive needle shaped motherships. This is still a work in progress with no downloadables to show as yet, but the screen grabs are looking pretty damn spectacular. Latest version: in mid 2005 there was a closed beta test.

Homeworld 2 Mini Mods
These are simple Mini Mods that simply change a small part of the game; they might add a few extra ships here, tinker with some aspects of the game there or simply change a few graphics and sounds. More often than not, you'll find small fiddles like these being combined with other custom mods.
Custom Vapour Trails Quite simply, all this does is change the look of the engine vapour trails left by all Strikecraft.Back
Debris
Mini-Mod
Its a small speculative graphic alteration, but the results are extraordinary. Essentially, every destroyed ship leaves reclaimable debris behind, including Strike-Craft. The resulting clouds of battle wreckage in the game is amazing and really looks like the space detritus caused by a large space battle. This will almost certainly challenge slower PC's, though. You can find all the downloads and details at its forum thread at Relic News. Current version: 0.3ABack
Dynamic Series This refers to two well regarded Mini Mods, Dynamic Fighters and Dynamic Capships by Homeworld 2 modding luminary Alex Drake, who is currently creating the amazing Angels Fall First Total Conversion. Both these mini-mods change the mechanics of how Strikecraft and Frigates fly around in Homeworld 2 battles. Instead of squadrons flying in then out in long strafing runs, the Dynamic Fighters mini-mod results in wonderfully fluid dogfighting with elegant curves and spectacular action. The Dynamic CapShips unshackles all Frigates so that they engage targets in all directions, rather than remain clamped to some imaginary ecliptic. The Dynamic Series have been used to great effect in other major mods, such as the PDS Mod, Siege Station Mod and the Ex Mod. You can chase up these, and other work by Alex, at Solaris.Back
The Vaygr Tutorials Mod adds some extra Vaygr missions to the Tutorial menu. Unlike the Hiigarans, the Vaygr aren't the most obvious force to pick up and successfully play in multiplayer. Many Homeworld 2 players considered them broken until strategy forum threads like this one on RelicNews woke up a lot of people to their Vaygr's potential. Current version: 2.0.
