L.I.F. has updated his helpful Homeworld Remastered Mod unit guide with the Kilrathi ships available in the game. Find the PDF here and start learning about how to best deploy your forces. In addition to the program being hosted at the Steam Workshop, fans who own the GOG version of Homeworld Remastered also can now get the current version of the mod here. The latest updates have included new options for resource collection with a very cool supply transport feature that jumps in to bring valuable resources to your base.
Aaaaand it's live! A pal from Phoenix Interactive told me how to get AIs to consider convoy transports as priority units to defend or attack specifically. I might rework the stuff later on to give the AIs specific raid/counter-raid tactics, but even now, it should give you people an interesting challenge to find and take out the enemy transports. Don't forget to set the Bounty option to "on" so you can grab some juicy bounties from the downed transports.
In a more general Homeworld news, the Complex mod got released in its new version, and I gotta admit, they did a superb job on the User Interface. What it does mean is that the next updates, during this month, will be less about new content or features and a lot more about improving the User Interface. Getting the fuel to show properly as a value in the screen, bigger icons, etc.

Christian Klein posted these neat pics of the Secret Missions made for China/Taiwan. We've previously posted about a number of Chinese ports in the past, including WC1, SM2, WC2 and the Special Operations, but it's possible that I've not seen the SM1 before.
