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.

  • Play as either the slow, steady and economically minded UNSC, or the heavily armed and aggressive Covenant. Both sides will be asymmetric to each other, providing a varied experience.
  • Play on maps featuring key Halo locations and backdrops - Earth, Sanghelios, Reach and even the Halo rings themselves.
  • New UI features, new music, new voices and new ships - We intend to replace as much as we can from the vanilla Homeworld 2 experience to bring you a total conversion worthy of the Halo universe.
  • A tailored, well rounded game - Our vision isn't simply to bring Halo to Homeworld 2, but to make a game that is fun, balanced and within reason. The mod is based sometime before the fall of Reach, so will not include any new UNSC tech post Halo 3. Furthermore, there will be no playable flood or Forerunner faction.
  • Revival of multiplayer and competitive gameplay - While we do provide an excellent AI in skirmish, our goal is for Homefront to be played against other individuals. To this end, we will be supporting an online player community as much as we possibly can. This also means that we do not currently plan on a campaign, but will not rule one out in the future.
  • Ship designs and unit choices that are more dictated by gameplay than simply following canon for the sake of canon. HHF is Halo based, but if we feel like we can improve on something, we will try our best to do so in a manner that stays as close to established lore as possible.

As the title states, the Homefront mod will be changing focus from the tried and true Homeworld series to the prequel, Deserts of Kharak. At this time, I do not know if modding is supported, but we would love to shift focus to a game with new technologies that allow space and land capabilities.

Transferring the mod from classic to remastered as posed quite a problem with how the game files have been structured in terms of models and textures. This means that in order to move the mod to remastered, everything has to be redone. With a new game on the horizon, we have decided to push into new territory rather than try and reclaim old territories. That isn't to say we won't come back to the remastering of Homefront, but our focus will be on trying to learn new techniques and abilities with a fresh game that can take advantage of today's newer technologies.

Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak releases on January 20th, 2016.

Does this work with Homefront Remastered Collection @ Steam? Thanks.

This should work with Homeworld Remastered Collection on Steam, since it was up-loaded by Zero to the Steam Workshop. Just be sure that you select the mod from the mods list on the launch menu before you start playing and select Homeworld 2 afterwards.

Just to be safe for now I would suggest using the version that is on the Workshop.

Hope this helps, and that you enjoying playing the mod.

While I have not encountered the issue myself what I can suggest is:
1) Trying running the game in compatibility mode.
2) Try another mod and see if it crashes the game.
3) Make sure if you are using the steam version of the game to use the version of the mod that is on the Steam workshop. If you are not using the steam version the mod here should work fine. Just make sure that you follow or did the method for installing mods here: Moddb.com
4) If only Homefront crashes the game try reinstalling the mod.
5) Make sure that your hardware is compatible with the requirements that the game needs to run e.g. Graphics Card, RAM, Processor.

If I find a more direct solution to your problem I will make sure that I post it.

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…
