Infinite money

Note: This procedure requires editing a game file; creating a backup copy of the file before proceeding is recommended. With a text editor, edit the singleplayer.script SCRIPT file in the game folder. Look for the line similar to "SINGLEPLAYER_STARTINGRUS*space space space space* 750. Delete the "750" and replace it with four to eight number "9"s. You will get a large amount of Rus. If this value is too large, you will go into debt as it will become a negative value in the game. Also, you have to start the game over to get it to work; it cannot be used with saved games. A pre-modified version of the script can be downloaded here.

Pilot View on ships

It is possible to view a firefight from aboard the bridge of one of your ships in the 1.05b patch. First, create and/or update a shortcut to the Homeworld exe by right-clicking your shortcut to bring up the options. Choose Properties and in the box that comes up, scroll to the end of the target field, add a space and add "/pilotview" (without quotes) so that it shows something like this: ...\Sierra\Homeworld\homeworld.exe /pilotview Click OK to close that window and enable Pilot View. Now play HOmeworld and choose a single ship and focus on it (the default focus key is F). Press Q to toggle pilot view and enjoy how a commander would see the 90s graphics. Note that if you focus on another ship (when in pilot view), you'll jump to its pilot view. If you choose a group of ships, you'll go back to the default view mode. Pressing Q will toggle between pilot and normal views. Now when you run Homeworld from the edited shortcut and focus on a single ship, hit Q to toggle pilot view on and off.

Homeworld PC Q&A

Either my ship is always destroyed or I survive the Gardens of Kadesh with all RC's destroyed.

Answer from gorohas4hands

Keep the ships in the safe spots in the nebula and only move when there are no outbursts.
