This is the latest version of Homefront, released on 12/21/2014.
Ever since Halo: Combat Evolved opened with the descent of the Pillar of Autumn toward the alien ring world known as Halo, the vehicles and spacecraft of Halo have featured heavily in the plot, setting and cinematic of Bungie's masterpiece series. While the games had followed the UNSCDF's fight from a ground-side perspective, there was always the back drop of war with the Covenant waged on two fronts; while the troops of both factions clashed on the ground, their monumental warships fought for supremacy in orbit. Kilometer long vessels battled their counterparts in titanic, decisive conflicts that often decided the fate of the planet below them.
We bring you the chance to experience Halo from space, in orbit and among the stars. In Homefront, you can command warships that stretch for kilometers and field dozens of weapons. Build nimble frigates which dip and weave in combat against their counterparts and strafe larger ships. Construct heavily specialized carriers able to dispatch dozens of fighters or drones, or explore more atypical, exotic weapons.

Greetings, and welcome to Homefront, a total conversion mod for Homeworld 2 set in the Halo universe. I am Nola, Serial Number NLA 0326-9 and I am the custodian for OPERATION: HOMEFRONT. Together, we will strike at the heart of the Covenant and drive them out of UNSC controlled space or die trying.
OPERATION: HOMEFRONT is a top secret program that is spearheaded by the highest echelons of HIGHCOM. Due to the success of the Anchor Program, which involves the construction and deployment of heavily modular space station configurations, and amidst the overwhelming failure of securing and protecting UNSC colonies, a large station has been constructed to support the needs of a expeditionary fleet into Covenant controlled space. Anchor 12 will be your base of operations, and it is up to you as its commander to overwhelm the opposition with what resources you can gather.
Your mission: eradicate any threat against the UNSC and Humanity as a whole. Our outer colonies are falling one by one and if our calculations are correct, UNSC forces will be routed and eliminated in less than a few years time. We cannot stay on the defensive and it is time to launch our most ambitious operation since the SPARTAN III campaign. Reach still stands as our stronghold, and HIGHCOM isn't going to wait for it to fall.
You will face a difficult challenge on the frontier of UNSC space. The resources you need to build your fleet must be gathered from nomad asteroid clusters. You will have no backup and your enemy will be as cunning as they are ruthless. This is a suicide mission and we can't guarantee you'll come back in one piece. If you succeed in finding and destroying the Covenant homeworld, you and your crew will be heralded as heroes to Humanity and will have halted it's greatest adversary. This is your time to shine, commander, don't waste your opportunities.
As of right now, the mod is uploading to ModDB in its most final state. I have dropped any version numbering/lettering in an attempt to make installation as easy for the end user as possible. In this version comes a wealth of new toys for you to play with that are, but not limited to:
As always, please direct all feedback/bugs/issues/suggestions to our new forums, located on the SOTP hub forums here: Sinsoftheprophets.com
We hope you enjoy the mod as much as we enjoy making it. This project has come a long way since it first started as the pioneer of almost every Halo space mod. Please be an active part of our forum community if you aren't already, it might just land you a spot as a playtester!
Highest Rated (25 agree) 10/10
1.09 Release: As I said before, the HHF have done a superb job with the Ships, they are highly detailed (The Blast Windshield, the Marathon Hangar Animation, etc) and beautifuly textured (Seriously check the frigate textures are Awesome). New ships where included, the new model of the Prowler (Reminiscence of the Normandy from Mass Effect), the Marathon class cruiser, the Thanatos Destroyer, et al. Gameplay wise, it´s still a beta, however, playing with the UNSC has been so far smooth, and not buggy…
