There can be no victory, only death.
No honour, only despair.
What once was lost, has been reawakened.
The Dustwars has begun...

"It has been said, that the Created cannot stand against the will of the Creator...

But this belief has been shattered.

With it, came an age of war unlike any seen by the cosmos' baryonic burden - planets withered, stars stuttered and fade...

But life still clung on to it's meager existance, and what must not be forgotten were lost...History became legend, legend became myth, and for countless millennias life moved on, oblivious to the fact that what once was lost, has been reawakened..."

"The vengeance of the ousted Creator can only be quenched by the blood of existence"

But there were no Dustwars to be found on the intertubes so I had to resort around my old semi-crashed HD and see if Dustwars is still there. And luckily some of it was. And since it's not on the internets I thought why the hell shouldn't I reupload it?
And here they are, an early, almost fully ship featured alpha and early minmod:
Dustwars Alpha Mod
Dustwars Minimod

I couldn't find the later minimod (it had some really cool things like PDSes on bombers and frigates, space stations (okay, armed asteroids, but still) and stuff. This is the release I mean. If anyone has it perchance I would greatly appreciate sharing so I can reupload it here too.

The other version of Dustwars I've found. I'm pretty sure there should be more, but can't find it so far. HOW-TO-RUN after the jump.

Yes, it's just the mods re-upload (though I can't seem to find the most recent version of minmod :().
If I were to start Dustwars again (which I would like to do if I find time) I'd certainly write my own engine, which would be easier than trying to hack Homeworld engine into having terrains, galaxy map, megaliths and other Dustwars-ish things. The best would be of course having Relic release the HW2 source code, since it would save a lot of hassle, but I don't think that's going to happen anywhen soon.
