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.

Release GAMMA

G'day Everyone!

I am today in the interesting position of announcing the re-release of Release Gamma, this time it's for the version of Homeworld 2 that is included in the Homeworld Remastered Collection!

Many members of the community have been upset to find that the standalone release here on Moddb is not compatible with the new version of Homeworld 2 (lets call it HW2C), this was expected but updating a couple of small things and fixing the bugs which were reported didn't take very long at all!


I would like to call out community member QuoNiam for submitting the most (and most coherent) bug reports. Thank you for your constructive comments and sharp eye :)

Things to note:

  1. This is a SHADER 2 RELEASE ONLY, there is no concession to people who need to use Shader 1
  2. The LCARS font is set as the one being used as we can only submit one *.big file archive
  3. There is NO LAUNCHER except the one provided by Gearbox, familiarise yourselves with it
  4. The Steam version of the mod is NOT COMPATIBLE with the Moddb version of the mod

I am hopeful that now multiplayer matches will be a feasible thing to consider, if there is information on this which needs to be disseminated for the community I will make another post here.

I have submitted the mod to the Steam Workshop, no idea when they will allow people to subscribe though.

The mod is now available for download! Click on the link below to get it :)

Steam

We will no longer be making any released for Homeworld 2, or Homeworld 2 Classic (well, maybe some bug fixes on HW2C if the need arises), so expect further updates to start appearing at the new mod page. Click on the picture below and follow!

Another good resource for news from the mod is of course our Facebook page, link is below

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

Hey guys, I found out that THQ is auctioning the Franchise of Homeworld, and team pixel is trying to obtain it so they can work with the series and release it on steam and even make a version for mobile devices (not to excited about that), but I am excited for their hopes to develop homeworld 3. Here's the link if you want to help keep this great franchise going. Kickstarter.com

Vaygr are inspired by the Vikings.
And a Taiidan Empire is based on the USSR.
For example, the same colors as the flag of the Soviet Empire - Red and yellow.

I don't see how the Taiidan were inspired by the former USSR.

Both the Vaygr and Hiigarans are based on a clan and kinship-based social structures that are very different from modern human societies.

Vaygr aren't just Vikings. They're Russian space Vikings with bee-inspired fashion.

Also, the Taiidani had... yellow as their primary color. Red was just the highlight to the yellow.
