Auto-harvesting is supported with r759 (bug fixed in r761). It is configurable by the user in Homeworld.cfg
[New HWSDL Options]
When enabled, any remaining resources on the level are added to the player's resource pool when they hyperspace to the next level. There are two in-game prerequisites for auto-harvesting to happen:
1) The player must have at least one resource collector in their fleet.
2) There must be no offensive
enemy vessels left in play.
hmm add this in along with cata's time compression
Support for time compression was added in r756
