Description
A collection of my multiplayer maps, as well as demonstrations of my custom map-making functions. These maps will only work in Homeworld Remastered.

You need to select the correct Game Type in the Skirmish/Multiplayer setup
screen in order for the maps to become accessible. This is because the mod
alters some game files in addition to adding new levels. I can't guarantee the
results if you skip this step.

DESCRIPTION

A collection of multiplayer maps, as well as a demonstration of my map-making
functions. These maps will only work in Homeworld Remastered.

INSTALLATION

Installation is done by subscribing to the mod on Steam Workshop if you have
the Steam version of the game. For the GOG.com/ModDB version, extract the ZIP
archive and copy the "DataMikaliMaps" folder to your "Homeworld Remastered"
directory, then add "-moddatapath DataMikaliMaps -overrideBigFile -luatrace" to
your Desktop shortcut's "Target" field.

PLAYING THE GAME

You need to select the correct Game Type in the Skirmish/Multiplayer setup
screen in order for the maps to become accessible. This is because the mod
alters some game files in addition to adding new levels. I can't guarantee the
results if you skip this step.


================================================================================


CONTENTS

Maps marked with an asterix (*) are not multiplayer safe. They will cause
desyncs in human vs human multiplayer battles, unfortunately. They work fine in
skirmish however. These maps are also marked with a pair of dice in the level
thumbnail images.

A 3D cube with randomized internal walls. Navigate the passageways to assault
your foe.

(2P) GO AROUND
A two-player map with a large vertical barrier separating players.

(2P) RESOURCE GALLERY
This map is intended to be used as a guide for map-makers. Arranged in rows and
columns are natural terrain, such as asteroids and clouds.

This map is intended to be used as a guide for map-makers. Arranged in rows and
columns are ships present in the game.

@Mikali: Could you provide the correct link for the HWRM Pie Plate Test here or message it to me please? Thank you for all your work.

@Mikali: Some of the links for download on your isometricland website seem to be misdirected. For example - the HWRM Pie Plate Test v1.0.0 Download link actually links to HWR_MikaliMaps_v1_19_2 on MediaFire. I hope that this is helpful.

Thanks for keeping the maps updated. Love these

I added some instructions to the description page.

LOL. You're supposed to select the game type in the skirmish setup screen. That's why it wasn't working for you. :steamhappy:

I added a file with en extension of levels to the directory HomeworldRM\Data\Leveldata\multiplayer as described in the link I provided.
Mikali  [author] Mar 10, 2016 @ 9:55pm 
What do you mean by "levels file"?
northernwater Feb 11, 2016 @ 4:53pm 
I got it to work. I created a levels file as per this link.

Sorry for the simple question, but how do I use them when I play the CPU? I've subscribed. I then select them in my MODs menu. I then click launch and I can't seem to find the maps.

Hey there, Mikali. Thanks for making these maps. I haven't gone through them all, but the ones I have have been very interesting. I especially appreciate the full utilization of all three dimensions. Cheers.
