"Unleashing Sajuuk was a mistake, for it released Dark Sajuuk the Great Destroyer."

Story Of The Dark Wars
Fifty years after the Hiigarans united the 3 hyperspace cores, and unleashed the Great Maker Sajuuk, things were going well as they repaired the damage the Vaygr did to Hiigara, or so they thought. In the shadows of the galaxy, there was an ancient Progenitor gate, on the other side there was a darkness, more eviler then anyone could of imagined. Behind this gate was Dark Sajuuk the Great Destroyer, and his Dark Progenitors, the evil cousins of the Progenitors, by unlocking Sajuuk the Hiigarans also unlocked the Gate of Darkness, and so the Darkness was released. Now Dark Sajuuk and his minions are after the 3 hyperspace cores, if he gets them there will be no hope for anyone. Only the Hiigarans and Sajuuk can stop the coming Darkness but will they find out how to?

Meanwhile in the dark corners of the Galaxy a monster that everyone though was dead has been reborn, and it hungers for revenge, and the galaxy. As it turns out the Beast Infection wasn't completely stopped a small pocket of it survived and now it is rampaging through the galaxy feeding on every thing in it's path. The Beast may be using old technology but it has vastly upgraded them.

Even though their leader Makaan is now dead, and their fleet shattered, this didn't mean the end for the Vaygr for a new warlord has come to power Rajas-Veer. Rajas-Veer was Makaan's second in command and one of his closest friends, because of this Rajas-Veer wants revenge on the Hiigarans but can't with the kind of fleet he has now, and because of this he is looking for ways to fix that problem.

Within their shattered empire, the Taiidan are rebuilding for War, a new emperor has risen, and wants revenge on the Hiigarans for everything they have done to the once great Taiidan Empire, and is willing to work with the Vaygr. The Taiidan were the most feared empire, and they shall be again.

In a far away sector there is an icy world where the advanced, and peaceful Kardarans are preparing for war just like they have for many unending years, in their war against the Beast.

Now soon all of these races shall meet and thus the Dark Wars shall begin, there can only be one victor but who shall be that one? You decide.


These are the mods I barrowed stuff from.
PTV: For most of the models I used.
FX: For a few models and the mod I a based Dark Wars on.
Homeworld universe: Only for original Homeworld and Homeworld Cataclysm models.
Complex: for a few things I used for the Hiigarans and Vaygr.
BloodFleet and his mods: For UI changes and models.
The Sands Of Time Mod: For The Beast Homeworld Backgroud and minor UI changes.
Homeworld Remastered: for their Remastered Taiidan Models.
Tactical Fleet Simulator: For the Hiigaran Siege Gunship (CFB-12 Plasma Bomber Corvette)
Ery Setyo From the We want Homeworld 3 group on Facebook: For making me a nice amount of Dark Progenitor badges. As well as giving me a few other ones that I plan to use for the Kardarans.
I believe thats all if I missed any please tell me and I will add them to the list.
I hope all of those mod teams will let me put up this mod for others because now I wanted to share it with other people I hope you all like it.

-4 new races, the Dark Progenitors, the Kardaran Empire, the Beast Infection, and the Taiidan Empire.
-Tons of new and old ships for all of the races.
-Plenty of new maps.
-A new class of ship for every race called the Flagship or a Ultimate ship, that can destroy
anything in it's path but costs alot to build and research it.
-New subsystems and ships for the original races.
-Right now compatible with both V1.0 and V1.1 Homeworld 2 this could very easily change though.

As of now I'm working towards the first release.
The mod right now is at least 70% done.
The Kardarans are about 85% done some more ships are planed
The Dark Progenitors are about 95% done being my most complete race so far they just need to have a few bugs fixed
The Taiidan are about 90% done they just need to balanced, and maybe get a few new ships.
The Beast is about 85% done they need to get their AI fixed and reworked a bit and lots of new things need to be added such as gaining enemy tech by infecting a enemies production ship. New ships and subsytems need to be added in.
New Music 95%
Beast Infected Ship Sounds 100%
I have plans for a single player campaign but don't know if I will make one.

Also feel free to post ideas, and feedback.

Alright lets get down to business shall we. The Vaygr have upgraded their crusades, and fleets ever since the end of Homeworld 2 these changes are.
--Gameplay/Balance Changes--
-All plasma based weapons have been replaced with laser based weapons now
-This means ships like the Vaygr Bomber, now known as the Assault Bombers are armed with Laser cannons instead of plasma bomb launchers.
-All Vaygr ships have been given a speed boost
-Some Vaygr Ships like the Carrier have been given a health boost
-There is a second improved manufacturing upgrade after the first
-This allows Vaygr Fleets to be able to build more ships even faster to go with their raiding style gameplay.
-Destroyers Now attack facing their enemy instead of useing a broadside tactic.
-This allows the Destroyers to use their new frontal laser cannon that must be researched.
--New Ships--
--Fighter Class--
Strike Fighter
Siege Bomber
--Corvette Class
Mortar Corvette
Assault Corvette
--Frigate Class--
Laser Frigate
Long Range Missile Frigate
--Capital Ship Class--
Light Cruiser
Battle Carrier
Warlord Dreadnaught
--Platform Class--
--Utility Class--

--New Subsystems--
Weapon Research Module
Flagship Engine Booster Module

These are all the changes, and new ships the the Vaygr, I hope you will enjoy these changes.

"Homeworld Universe Mod Team and all mod connected with it"

Given then large variety of mods that HWU takes from, this credit item raises eyebrows for me. Speaking as someone who has content in HWU, I'd not be pleased to see my work in a mod with that as the only applicable credit. If you're using things from HWU, you should almost certainly try to find what the ultimate source is, and get permission from/give credit to them, instead of/in addition to HWU.

I do understand what you mean, and now I've changed my mods description to say what I used from HWU.

I guess that is true, but they are just the original Homeworld and Homeworld Cataclysm models, mostly Cataclysm's models for the Beast, But if I have to ask then I shall say, is it ok if I use those models from your mod?

actually in reguards to the HW1 models and the cata models from HWU they arnt ours to give consent to either, since Chris was the one who created the HOD's, and converted all of those models, it would have to be him who gives the consent, they were from one of his mods.

This is a something to know I just got permission from mololu to use his P2V models and I would like to thank him and the entire P2V team :)

Pouk Sep 7 2011, 10:59pm replied:

That's cool, I just have a one tiny side note. Calling them P2V all the time is rather confusing, Mololu himself refers to his mod as PTV, even his mod's logo says so. (I wouldn't normally mention it, it just happend to me that after a very quick reading throught the description I thought to myself "he didn't meantion Path to Victory?" Only a few moments later my tired brain realized that you call it P2V instead).
