The goal of this mod is to bring back the units from the original Homeworld into the Homeworld 2 engine, with high quality texture and polycount detail. The campaign and animatics from the original game will also be included.

I saw the title of this image in my update box.

My face lit the f*** up like a firefly.

Personally, in my opinion, this is the best Swarmer I've seen for the Kadeshi so far.

It looks somewhat too grey/dusty on the surface. I love your other models, but this one ought to be closer to the original than this, in my opinion.

Maybe it's the GIF conversion, the texture is basically the same, the greys or dust in it are the same as in the original.

Yep, you're probably right.

Pretty darn good. It captures the overall Kadeshi "look" without introducing too many model changes that are subjectively derived from the texture (and thus each person has a different idea of what the 3d interpretation of the texture would look like). For example, you chose to not recess the black lines or extrude (most) of the circular texture details. This is now my favorite re-creation of the Swarmer to date.

Recessing the black lines or extruding plates would greatly increase the polycount without adding much to the model. And don't forget there was a **** load of swarmers in the original, and we intend to have even more in the campaign...

Wohoho amazing remastering!
I love it, it really is the best Swarmer around.

Just one thing: doesn't the engine trail "collide" with the tail while the ship is moving?

As long as the effect doesn't look weird, it doesn't matter!

I'm not sure, but we can put the engine shape a bit away to prevent becoming weird. This is a little ahead in my todo list. By the time I work on it, I'll let you know.

Description

There's a lot of mods out there with new Kadeshi, but it wouldn't make sense not to remaster all the races of HW1.
So here's a look at the remastered Kadeshi Swarmer.
