Homeworld : Blue Planet aims at transposing the Blue Planet fan-universe as depicted in the Age of Aquarius and War in Heaven mods for FreeSpace 2, into a Real Time Strategy setting, using the Homeworld 2 engine. This mod is a Total Conversion using assets made by the Freespace Upgrade Project, the Blue Planet Team and the HW@ Team, with the authorization and support of their respective authors.
Cut from the Sol system, under the constant threat of a mysterious enemy, struggling to survive and rebuild, Terrans have finally found their way home... and they brought war with them.

Set 18 years after the events of Freespace 2, also known as the Second Shivan Incursion, the Blue Planet continuity, comprised of the Age of Aquarius and War in Heaven campaigns, is considered by many as one of the best fan-made continuation to a universe laid down by the best space shooter ever made.
In the Homeworld: Blue Planet demo, you can now command the awe-inspiring warships of the United Earth Federation and the Galactic Terran/Vasudan Alliance, and lead them into battle in the Homeworld 2 engine.
- All capital ships operated at the time of Blue Planet on the GTVA Terran and UEF sides, aside from the Sanctus.
- One basic deathmatch map.
- A fully-functional Gauntlet gametype directly inspired from HW@'s Survival gametype, with two maps.
- A Massive Battle map.
Install instructions are written in the readme and posted in the release thread. Hope you enjoy it !
