  • Pilot View on ships

    Relic managed to quietly sneak in the option to view a firefight from aboard the bridge of one of your ships in the 1.05b patch. Your game needs to be patched to this version. You will need to create and/or update a shortcut to the Homeworld exe - right-click your shortcut to bring up the options. Select 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. You've just enabled Pilot View! Within the Homeworld game, select 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! Please note - if you focus on another ship (when in pilot view), you'll jump to its pilot view. If you select 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.
