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

13 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 !

First off, congrats to the folks for TFS v1.8 and Star Wars Warlords. Both incredible mods that deserve a lot of credit. Thumbs up lads :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

2 mods I would like to see done is the star trek mod. Because phasers, photon torpedo and shields would look pretty cool. And the battlestar galactica mod, now with the second series out, a mod based on this would be awesome, especially with the battle star weapons. Even with limited ships in bg a campaign could be created based on the series.
I would love to do this myself but I have no modding experience. I spent about a week trying to design a single ship for hm2 but failed miserably, that was back last year. I was thinking of trying again so could someone direct me in the direction of any good tutorials and examples.

:idea: Finally, maybe someone could make Earth vs. UFO's bases on today’s modern weapons could be fought in space with slightly futuristic weapons, or on earth with flak and chain guns. Just a thought:idea:

Wow, I am truly amazed with this mod. I just downloaded the TFS v1.8 version, and I am speechless. This is defiantly how Homeworld 2 was meant to be released, I love the new ships, they make the strategy much more complex. I also like how ships have a more decent amount of weapons; it actually feels like a battlefield now. And another really nice thing about this mod is that fighters are no longer underpowered as they were in the stock Homeworld 2.
This is defiantly the best mod for Homeworld 2, and this is how the game should have been in the first place. Great job.Big Grin! :thumbup:Thumbs Up! Thumbs Up!

I've always wanted to mess around and set the ships to have more power and armor. For longer battles and then have some where a Hiigaran Battlecruiser has insane firepower, yet is being attacked by a lot of ships. Is it possible to go into the game and adjust the armor and power? I even heard you could make nukes by setting the blast radius of certain weapons and I thought that'd be cool. Is it possible?
