The epic struggle of the Hiigarans and their leader Karan S'jet continues. Many thought their hardships would end when they returned to Hiigara, yet fate has not been so kind to the Exiles. Now the Hiigarans face a new and bitter enemy, a renegade clan from the eastern fringes of the galaxy, who wield the power of the ancients.

Homeworld 2 chronicles the valiant journey of the Mothership and its crew into the oldest regions of the galaxy to confront their new foe and discover the truth behind their exile.

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: A brand new design

12 comments by Phoenix_Int on Jul 31st, 2014

Thibault Testart, our executive director decided recently to update the mod pages because the design of our website was not anymore related to the old design, established previously on ModDB (that grey design). This is the reason why, today, you have the opportunity to follow our mods with a brand new design.


The design itself
This design is mostly minimalist but visually beautiful and powerful. This version is by far more fluid than the previous one and includes special features such as the team recognition (different color for usernames and a little Phoenix Logo below the avatars).


The design is powered by the @font-face technology which enables us to add customized font to the website (except for Mozilla Firefox). Therefore, you will have the opportunity to see the font MyriadPro for example. 



Special features
While the design itself innovates the whole structure, other features were included. The karma is no longer present because the majority of our community asked to delete it. Mostly because some people get buried sometimes for no reason, like asking a simple question. Of course, rude comments won't be accepted and they will be removed directly from ModDB. It's simple, each of us need to respect the conditions established on the website.


On the other hand, it's now easier for each of us to connect to the mod pages, including for cellphones and tablets. It's fluid, and you know it when you are on other devices. The resolution is the same and is still delimited to 1024px (width). The last great enhancement is by far the way the slider looks, which enables the watcher to load the pictures as quickly as possible.


How is that possible ?
Are there any plans for releasing the old version into the public domain ?

To edit your pages, you need first to have the required skills or at least to contact the good person, like Thibault Testart which is by far really talented when it comes to HTML/CSS designs. 
On the other hand, the old version will be released into the public domain. However, the new one won't be released into the public domain and is protected by ModDB.

Thanks for reading,
Have a great day !

So much for the hope of getting homeworld 3 :/. Goddamn gearbox :(. Well, the only thing we can hope now is that Team Pixel will be able to create a true successor to the franchise like what have said.

You know, Gearbox at least made some bigger games. And some of them, especially the Brother in Arms-Series, showed much talent, and the ability to make an unconventional game in a genre full of CoD-copies. TeamPixel couldn't present anything to proof their ability of creating a noteworthy successor at all. Where does all this baseless trust come from?

While I don't doubt Gearbox's ability to make good games, I just hope they knew what they were doing when they bout the Homeworld IP.

There is a badge pack included in the Point Defense Systems mod that has badges from different fleets on both the Hiigaran and Vaygr sides. Might that be the one you're talking about? It's a really great pack
