[Tutorial] Making the Progenitor a Playable Race

Here’s my attempt at following in Moe’s footsteps. This tutorial should take you from start to finish on a basic mod to create a new playable race using the Progenitor ships from HW2. This is aimed at beginners new to modding Homeworld Remastered. It is compatible with HWRM v2.205.

I mention UnfBig in the tutorial, you can download it here: http://www.moddb.com/games/homeworld/downloads/homeworld-universe-mod-tools

I’ve also uploaded a “control” version of the mod that you can compare against. Feel free to rip it open and examine the files if you get stuck.

Oh wow, the memories. You gave me flashbacks, Vietnam-style.

This is great, a clear guide to new races in HWRM has been lacking from the tutorials list for a while… Well done!

You need to change a line in the ship file.
