Homeworld 2

Submitted by: conner54

Modify RU's:
------------
This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the
file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "persist*.lua" file
in the "\homeworld2\bin\profiles\profile1\campaign\ascension" folder.
Note: the number in the filename corresponds to the mission. Locate the
"RUs =" line at the bottom of the file and change its value to any desired 
number.


Unlock all missions:
--------------------
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of
the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "playercfg.lua" 
file in the "\homeworld2\bin\profiles\profile1" folder. Find the 
"maxmission = x" entry. Change its value to "15" to unlock all missions.
Note: The game bases your starting fleet from your last real completed
mission.


Change number of starting ships:
--------------------------------
This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the 
file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "persist*.lua" file
in the "\homeworld2\bin\profiles\profile1\campaign\ascension" folder.
Note: the number in the filename corresponds to the mission. Open the 
"persist*.lua" for the desired mission and search for a string of lines
as follows:

shiphold = {
},
name = "",
teamColourHandle = 0,
hotkey = 67108872,
},
{
tactic = 1,
type = "Hgn_AssaultFrigate",
subsystems = {
},
buildjobs = {
},
size = 1,
shiphold = {
},
name = "",
teamColourHandle = 0,
hotkey = 67108872,

The "type ="Hgn_AssaultFrigate" section tells you what is in the ship's
hold. If you want more of it, just copy the entire string.

{
tactic = 1,
type = "Hgn_AssaultFrigate",
subsystems = {
},
buildjobs = {
},
size = 1,
shiphold = {
},
name = "",
teamColourHandle = 0,
hotkey = 67108872,
},

.and paste more of them This will give you one more ship for each onepasted.
You can create a huge fleet if desired. Note: If you make a lot of ships that
"fly" out of the mothership in the beginning, then you have to wait for all of
them. This could be a while if you make 50 or so. Try to stick to frigates 
since they warp in separately. You can also edit the research you currently
have and the modules in the ships.


Best ships:
-----------
This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file
before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "persist*.lua" file in the
"\homeworld2\bin\profiles\profile1\campaign\ascension" folder. Note: the number
in the filename corresponds to the mission. Open the "persist*.lua" for the 
desired mission and add the following text blocks to get the best ships in the
game. You add them just like you would any other ship. In terms of strategy, 
you should use both of them since the Sajuuk cannot defend against fighters, 
while the Dreadnought will tear through them.

{
tactic = 2,
type = "Kpr_Sajuuk",
subsystems = {
},
buildjobs = {
},
size = 1,
shiphold = {
},
name = "NIS_Squad",
teamColourHandle = 7,
hotkey = 0,
},

{
tactic = 2,
type = "Hgn_Dreadnaught",
subsystems = {
},
buildjobs = {
},
size = 1,
shiphold = {
},
name = "NIS_Squad",
teamColourHandle = 31,
hotkey = 0,
},
