Tactical Fleet Simulator (TFS) is a total overhaul that completely redefines the Homeworld experience. TFS aims to transform Homeworld2 into a tactics-oriented combat simulator by enhancing the tactical aspect of the game through the inclusion of new content and revamping the entire pace of combat to simulate a more immersing and adrenaline-soaked experience. Recurring themes are quasi-modern (circa 20th century) air and naval doctrines modified for three-dimensional movement complete with a proper unit classification system. Grand strategy plays a significant role, but the emphasis is placed on battlefield adaptability simulated by a large amount of available assets - some of which have similar roles but are only applicable under specific circumstances. Combined arms is the name of the game: there are no individual "super" powered units. Even the strongest ships will be taken down in short order if not managed correctly and utilized in conjunction with other assets.

i honestly love this game, and the TFS Mod but i have a few suggestions that would make it more fun.

carrier should get 2-4 ASM missiles (assault carrier) to be compared with modern carriers and subs, as well as better anti missile systems.
should aslo be able to carry more vessles than just 6
and should have more armour, i.e. 400000 hp rather than the max 192000 hp.

few more suggestions if asked but idk if it matters.
also, is there any possible way i coul modify my own files on TFS to what i want for ships to have and power of the ships, number of ships carried by a carrier, etc.
and if so how.

"not like its obvious or anything but i rely heavily on carrier attack/support."

Well your input is welcome, giving such a large armor buff and offensive capability to the standard carriers would severely distort the balance of the gameplay and cause overlapping roles with the dedicated Strike Carrier and Assault Carrier class ships.

However, you can easily modify the files to incorporate these changes yourself by extracting the mod content and editing the carrier .ship files.

Did you create a new profile before starting the campaign in TFS? Often times having saved game content from a previous version of the game will cause it to crash when loading it with TFS.

Hey Capt! It's been a while!

In Tunngle, in the lobby search bar type in "Homeworld". A list of Homeworld-related servers should pop up. The one named "Homeworld 2 - Tactical Fleet Simulator 3G" is the appropriate one for TFS.

ok, in all my years with computers, i just made the same mistake everyone hopes to avoid. the reason why it don't work on windows 8 is because i didn't install the patch to the game. :P that was embarrassing. sorry, and thx for putting up with my post. :/
