I am relatively new to modding, so any help or ideas others are willing to contribute would be appreciated.
Features of this mod:
-New playable Bentusi ships
-In-game Bentusi speech
Other features to come
For now I am trying to concentrate entirely on making the Bentusi into a playable race, I have also however considered adding additional races once this has been accomplished. One such race that would be a nice match for the Bentusi is the mysterious T-MAT concept race from homeworld 1.
The Backstory so far:
"We are one with our vessels. Hyperspace sings in our ears, the universe unfolds around our thoughts."
10 years after the Kushan exiles returned to Hiigara and defeated the Vaygr warlord Makaan, the Hiigaran people and their allies in the Taiidan republic continue the fight to eradicate the remaining forces of the Vaygr Reaches. Upon exploring the hyperspace gate network activated by Sajuuk, the Hiigarans stumbled upon an ancient megalith. Upon exploring the megalith's interior, Hiigaran scientists discovered that the station was a data archive of knowledge detailing events in ancient galactic history.
"It was like a giant library, the chronicles of millenia stored within one massive structure."
"Today we discovered a perticularily interesting data record on the Bentusi. It details an ancient battle between the Bentusi race and a mysterious enemy called the "Pariah", we have not decoded the entire piece but the information we have revealed thus far is disturbing indeed"

Recently ive been working on some concept art for planets that will be seen in the background of the custom maps included in the mod, for both single player and multiplayer game modes.
Population: 300 Million natives, 100 Thousand Vaygr
Hethlim is a frozen world located within Vaygr space on the outer rim of the galaxy. It is surrounded by a dense ice field that makes travel to the planet very difficult. During the war against the Vaygr, Makaan discovered the third hyperspace core in the Hethlim Ice fields, and so the people of Hethlim have suffered a long and harsh rule under Vaygr occupational forces.
Population: Formerly over 2.5 Billion Taiidan, Presently 0
Ar'than Tel had long been a hub of trading activity for the Taiidan Republic, until the Tiamat hyperspaced into the system and burned the surface of the planet. Now Ar'than Tel is a barren world covered in the ruins of once great cities and the ashes of its former beautiful natural landscape.
Population: Unknown, in the billions before the Tiamat left the galaxy.
The planet Tiamat is now a ghost of what it once was. 10,000 years before the Hiigaran empire even exhisted, the Tiamat lost a war against the Bentusi, who bid the Tiamat leave the galaxy and never return. Now the planet orbits a dying star, and massive towers and alien technology cover most of the planet's surface, making it a popular destination for plunderers seeking to make a fortune.
The planets listed above are the planets that I have concepts done for, some planned future additions are:
Hiigara (a renewed look)
Frerrn - Frerrn Aggregate Homeworld
Taiidan - Taiidan Homeworld
Vay - Vaygr Homeworld
Kharak - Not much to look at since being bombarded by the Taiidan :P
Nalthor - May or may not include the Port of Nalthor
Any suggestions or additional thoughts, please leave a comment.Thanks
My first rough 3D model of what will become the Bentusi mothership. This mothership is loosely based off of the Harbourship of Bentus in Homeworld 2...
