I've played Reactor Gamma. It's quite well designed, but at the same time the symmetric layout means that some parts become repetitive and the objectives are fairly simple. I would like to see something like level 3 of Mercenary, which was a massive level with numerous objectives and many distinct areas.

The only other one I have played is the D3 version of Centroid Base. I will need to try out Windmine, which I hadn't heard of before.

I have all those soundtrack files and know about GAP. I used that program to convert the few missing ones and compiled them into single pieces some years ago.

Good to hear. :nod:

If you want something huge, check out all the WindMine levels. In some instances, even God Mode isn't invincible. :D

Me too. I miss firing arrows from long range, hitting their heads and watching them fall like flies. I was damn good at that. Master Archery helped too.

Good luck with those Drillers. :p

Not exactly old-old, but I'm just finishing up a Derelict replay.  Almost forgot how much fun it is.

 
     So do people prefer homeworld 2 over homeworld 1? I finally finished 1, and am starting 2. But 2's been pissing me off in a few ways. It's like, I've barely got a fleet and I reach some arbitrary frakking build limit. And the ship's probably look better but the default zoom makes them all too small to see a damn thing anyway, which is fine because the ships die like nothing. Frigates go down in a few seconds. It's like wtf. But the build limit, damn, at the end of HW1 I had like 70 Ion Frigates stolen from that inhibitor mission, plus assorted other ships. Of course that's over the limit but I'm sure my frigate limit was a heck of a lot more than it was in HW2.

Homeworld 1 has better story and missions, but homeworld 2 has better graphics and ships.

Cataclysm just scares me.......
