Exactlly space captain. That is why x2 didn't last outside a week or 2 for me. As interesting as a concept as the game has going it isn't fun to play it. There's really a huge lack of originality in the ship designs and just the over all feel of the universe imo. That and the fact tht some of the factories take over 24 hours of playing time to build even 1 item. That is just ridiculous for a game that is based around a single player experience.
Not much going with this mod. They claim realism but have several retarded features such as no firing untill you bring up your sites and allowing you to stay sited while prone and moving. Features like this are not realistic. And just plain dumb.
The gamespy reviewer was an asshole. He gave the game an average score because he sucked at it. He even complained that singleplayer was hard because he kept getting attacked by ships he didn't have yet. Yeah well if he knew anything about homeworld he would've used counter units GG nub. I can almost see it now "OMG A DESTROYER(anti frigate cap ship =P) I BETTER SEND IN FRIGATES!!!!1111one!1111" Anyway the game is in stores today at EB in the SF bay area. Compusa won't have it for awhile they said and Fry's Electronics said they are getting it tommorow.
