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.

We took the time to make some explanations of the mod features, talking about the new Gearbox's Homeworld Remastered and having some fun.

After the 1 hour mark I attempted a failed suicide attack, I wish you will like it.

Here's a sneak at what were doing, the old Hw1 ships in full Hw2 graphics, not just putting them ingame, but giving them enhanced textures and 3d details...

I would definitively say that I like you guys' models MUCH more than gearbox's. Gearbox, from what I saw, both did less to upgrade the models, and did too much... Like in the Gardens of Kadesh cutscene the ambassador corvette had these huge box-things on it where there were supposed to be just windows... thought it looked weird.

I am also severely disturbed by the fact that the HW1 collector "docked" with an asteroid just like the HW2 ones do, the same thing you guys have done. Would have thought that with their superior ability to manipulate the core engine code, they would have been able to fix this??!! This REALLY worries me.

Yeah that worried me too, if I had access to the code I would have made a new class of beam weapon that leeched RUs from the asteroids just like in HW1.

well i watched the pax video multiple times...and it seems they have the technology and resources to do the ships at high fidelity, but aesthetically, it's still gearbox, ie, not that talented.

they're ok though, especially the hw2 ships which seem largely untouched aside from texture and shaders, so at least they won't ruin the aesthetics of the hw2 ships.

one of the graphics artists doing the hw1 ships didn't play the original game ffs. i mean looking at the media section, it's clear this mod made by amateurs has superior artistic sensibilities than the gearbox devs responsible for ships.

I feel like the level of graphical fidelity is hard to get across purely from a video on-screen, and that it will feel and look a lot better when we actually get our hands on it. Because yes I agree the HW2 ships did not look that much different, just with excessive normal maps :(

Guys, can we play Homeworld 2 (old) mods like Complex 9.1 on the remastered version? If yes, i doubt it though, it'll make my year lol a

Guest is correct, they said in the PAX video that it is actually running on the HW2 engine, so mods should literally be runnable in the remasters, albeit likely with some tweaking for big ones like complex. I have mixed feelings about this, I was hoping that they would have made a new, more modern engine, but I guess it does mean that the HW2 gameplay will be exactly replicated. Worried about HW1 though... :(

Yes you can they explained that some of the designers of the original complex mod are now working on remastered.
