Hi.

I remember the first time I played homeworld, I lived in fear of the "quick docking" button because I was convinced that if I pressed it any ship left outside the mothership that didn't have a jump drive would be left behind. :(
Eventually, I saved the game and tested it and was mightily releaved to discover that all the ships came with me, even if I was under attack.

[Evil Thought]
I would like to suggest that we change that to "hyperspace now", and any ships that haven't docked are left behind, and the ships with hyperspace capability just jump from wherever they are. :twisted: :twisted:
'Twould be a lot more realistic.
[/Evil Thought]

fine with me.

it'd also be a good idea to document notable HWSDL gameplay changes, so those from the original can be informed.

That made sense in Cataclysm because of the nature of some of the missions, especially the research planet episode... but given the relatively static nature of the original Homeworld missions, and the absolutely statric nature of the Mothership... it'd just be harassing the player :wink:

Now... if you want to put it as an option in future Homeworld SP missions especially designed around the concept then this would go nicely with the selectable options in the theoretical "Homeworld Advanced" game mode.

I'm as opinionated as usual, of course... :)

I agree with Zapkitty. I would much more prefer to include this as an option fo rthe player than as a default change.

It was originally included to speed up game play, would you really want to what around for half an hour while your ships dock?
such a feature was added in Cata because in certain missions you retreat under firre, I don't think this happens in HW so there no point.
