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.
Our impressions after the current events that are entangling Homeworld's Intellectual Property
Posted by Chimas on Jan 26th, 2013
THQ auction has left suspended the rights for the use of Homeworld.Will it be for sale later?
Will it be left in "Hyperspace"?It will take time to absorb this situation and all consequences.
At HWR, we are confident that we are working in one of the most exciting MODs out there for the Homeworld universe. This confusing auction and the anger of the community has strongly confirmed our thoughts. It has made clear to us that our responsibility in remaking part of HW1 is even greater than we could imagine.
Homeworld IP is traveling in the darkness of space with a very weak signal. So in the near future, one oasis in this absurd void for the HW fans might become Homeworld Remastered. We can not plan and develop HWR underestimating this possibility. At this moment we have under production 23 KUSHAN ships and 19 TAIIDAN ships, 14 of them have been released to your appreciation already. To be honest, in the recent weeks we are in a slow pace. We also have a vacant position for a coder what is delaying a bit our ambitions.
Privately, we hope that this dilemma we all have been thrown to, serves to stimulate new mods, old ones reborning, old toughs revenging, and to enlarge the base of players and modders. We welcome you all to be part of our experience in order to relieve the pain caused by this non-sense anytime: Play our mod, play the other mods, awake "sleepers" everywhere to join our struggle.
Let's tell those bureaucrats loud and clear that we do not stand this mess they have done.
Best of luck to all of us
