About

FX:Galaxy (commonly known as the FXmod) is a long-term modification project for the Homeworld series that aims to tell the story of the eight main races from the Homeworld universe in one game. Continuing the legacy left behind by its HW2 predecessor (2006-2015), FX:Galaxy continues the FX project's work in Homeworld Remastered while at the same time tapping into the new possibilities for Homeworld modding it provided.

Features

  • 8 Playable Races: Continue your campaign as the Hiigaran or Vaygr, reclaim past glory as the Progenitors, orchestrate the revival of the Kadeshi, join the Taiidan Empire as they rise to power once more, plunder the galaxy together with the Turanic Raiders, relive the days of the exile as the Kushan, or try and bring peace to this turbulent galaxy as the Bentusi. All races are fully playable and await your command!
  • Increased Strategical Options: All eight races come with their own unique units, abilities and technology trees, bringing a vast amount of new playing styles and strategical options to the table. Can you bring out the full potential of your race?
  • New Units & Models for all of the races. Many of these were designed based on original Homeworld concept art (e.g. our new Turanic Attack Carrier; see here), and stay true to the concerning race's lore and characteristics. Try out the new Progenitor Megacarrier, Taiidan "Empress" Shipyard and the Kadeshi Nagual among many, many others –- or come see our takes on old favorites such as the completely re-textured Turanic Outpost from HW:Cataclysm!
    NOTE: Since this was originally a HW2 mod some units still use HW2+ textures. These are being (and have been) upgraded to HWRM texture quality over time.
  • Enhanced Graphics/FX: New animations (e.g. Turanic smoke, Progenitor energy), weapon fx (e.g. improved Taiidan ion beams & plasma bombs, Kadeshi energy weapons), subsystem models, unit blueprints, sounds, and way more eye candy for prying eyes (and ears) to discover.
  • Gameplay Content: Test your mettle in new Single-Player (mini)-campaigns, protect the Bentusi against increasing waves of enemies in the new Bentusi Defense mode, summon and battle alongside the developers of the FXmod themselves in the epic FX-The Legendary Fleet mode, or expand your horizons with 12 New Gameplay Maps for use in Player vs. CPU and Multiplayer matches - each made from scratch without map generators. This and more 'bonus content' is gradually added over time as a thank you to our fans!
  • Unique Features: A dynamic Main Menu background, brand new Achievement System (WIP) and a fully customizable In-Game Homeworld Music Player that lets you customize your BGM experience to your liking and add your own songs (besides also featuring a number of 'bonus' tracks in addition to the stock HWRM OST) are just three of current exclusive features that the FXmod has brought to the table -- and there is yet more to come still!
  • Vanilla Changes: Squadrons instead of single units, restoration of the original Taiidan 'armada' playing style from HW1, removal of obsolete units (e.g. HGN Gunship, Minelayer), enhancements to existing units (e.g. HGN Pulsar Gunship with dual turrets), streamlined production/researching and ongoing balance tweaks are just a few of the various revamps the FXmod brings with it in comparison to the originals.
  • Improved Shader: A tweaked version of the HWRM shader that aims to restore the "space feel" by no longer having metallic surfaces look as if there is flashlight cast on them from all angles. Also makes those units in our mods that still using HW2 textures look a tad better.
  • Aid to New Players: New to the FXmod? We got you covered! Our Features page contains Guides and Articles on a wide range of subjects to help you on your way and acquaint yourself with some of the FXmod's more prominent features. The rest is up for you to explore and discover.
  • Fully supports LAN and Multiplayer (including lobby chat).
  • Added support for direct TCP/IP (Internet) multiplayer.

Under Development..

  • RPG Mode: A unique spin on the traditional Single-Player mode that turns Homeworld into a true RPG. Live travel between maps via special hyperspace gates that 'connect' all maps, receive and complete missions from NPCs, purchase units and do many other things, just like in a real RPG game. You may even encounter units from past FXmod releases or other mods as special NPCs (easter eggs).
  • More custom models and animations, as well as HWRM-quality texture upgrades for existing units.
  • Other things that take advantage of HWRM's modding possibilities. Stay tuned!

What do the players say?

"Your work is really good. You’ve been able to do many things that really stand out in the community and impress the guys here."
-Brian Burleson (Gearbox Software CEO)

"Absolutely love it. Adds far more depth to the game and rids me of my anguish I feel when other races are present in an RTS you can't play as."
-Panther Legion (Steam)

"Great mod! I definitely recommend this to anybody wishing to enhance their experience. Not only are you given extra races to play with (like four from the vanilla game), but each race plays very different from each other."
-Phoenix Rising (Steam)

"Finally got to play Kadeshii, something I've wanted to do since I was five or six. Thank you, sir, for fulfilling my childhood dreams."
-Ixius Uberius Maximus (Steam)

The launcher thing WildHeart talked about is for those who download the mod from steam workshop. If you download the installer here, you should chose create Start menu shortcut or desktop shortcut during the installation. Using that shortcut should bring you into FX Mod. Please let us know if you still have problem even using the shortcut.

If it still doesn't work, please post your game log here Moddb.com
(you can find details about how to get the log file there)
Note that the game log file is regenerated every time you restart the game, so you have to get the log right after your attempt to launch FXG Mod. And also remember to tell us which version of HWRM you are using (Steam or GOG, v2.0, 2.1 or 2.205)

All you need is the base game (Homeworld Remastered). Once this mod has been installed click [MODS] in the HWRM launcher menu, select the FX:Galaxy mod from [available] at the left > Launch.

Will be posting a couple of articles here over the coming days. If you are reading this message you are among the first to know, so to commemorate the occasion I will also tell you something else: it is safe to get your hopes up.

Would be good to add the republic of Taiidan into this mod. With units that look like Taiidan units with a bit of a hiigaran feel to them.

Hello. I am making a personal Homeworld mod for Sins of a Solar Empire and I would like to use your models. Is there anyway I could get them from you. I would like to do the Bentusi but I don't have enough ships to fill all the slots.
