Point Defense Systems was a mod released for Homeworld 2 that strives to create a more militaristic feel to the game than in the normal game. Using various tactical improvements and scripting overhauls, the mod adds much more depth and action to the game compared to the original. Mod is probably best known from concept of imitating Newtonian-based physics and making units themselves more independent, giving the feel of real naval battles. However this is also considered by some as biggest disadvantage of this mod making control over units very difficult for anyone used to play vanilla game or other mods.
