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.

Hi everyone,

I've been the spokesman of our mod and have been publishing news and comments here. This has happened informally as for most of us modding has been a hobby. I have set new projects with new goals and although I'm always willing to help JK, Moleman and Krnt, I won't be publishing things in the name of HWR. So, no fights, nor vanities, just coherence.

To be honest, you don't loose anything, once I am the less skilled in the team. I just brought this up in the case you notice any new spokesman. HWR has a lot of things done and to be done, but it will be brought by somebody else. Also, at the moment HWR is the mod far ahead of any other concerning HW universe in terms of content. Not because "we are better" and all these vanities, but because most modders are in an interval, waiting for Gearbox and their new technology.

Talking about that, the "new-renderer" statement is powerful, hã? You might not think so, but I've been noticing "old" modders dusting off some ideas, so we should expect good news in the future, not only those brought by Gearbox.

See you around.

I am very impressed with your work and I want to applaud you !
But I have some questions:
- I guess we can play multiplayer, right ?
- The mod out there within 3 days of the game's release languages ​​(English (of course) but also French and German)? Left to wait longer exit French and German versions, it would be nice and would only promote your work !
- Will we have the original multiplayer maps ?
- And finally: if the mod is a huge success, would you be willing to continue working with Homeworld Cataclysm this time ?

I shared your project on my facebook page hoping to make your project the ancients fan or curious players and I am sending you all my support !

Thanks in advance for your job ! =')

About the release languages, it's something we can do, if we have community help in translating...

I'll answer what I know, but I'm not on the team, so don't quote me on this:
- Yes, you can play multiplayer, there's even a download currently available for a demo of it. Integrating the multiplayer options such as disabling research, enabling resource injections, etc. are planned.
- There are no plans for translations to other languages. It'll be up to members of the community to volunteer for translating.
- Yes, fully remastered and playable, as well as some new ones.
- Making a Homeworld Cataclysm: Remastered is possible if the mod is a success, but no promises.

complementing Forloftol:
- try our DEMO in download section - 14 ships in Skirmish
- Localization not planned. Fans can extract the mod and submit a version in the add-on section
- Our coder is engaged in his own MOD involving Cataclism universe - called BEAST EVOLUTION MOD. We are not thinking about Cataclism, because it's still too far away in time. Believe me: a MOD team is very vulnerable to real life issues. And is certainly a miracle to have put together a great designer and a great coder to resurrect and update this game ...

lol, In reguards to localization, it is a definite possability, but as was stated before, we just havnt had the time to do all of the conversions for them. The community is welcome to submit their localizations but they would have to be verified as well and we all know how unreliable google translate it :P

It is possible, it's already been done. Homeworld 1 has already got localization for us! We just have to fill in the gaps where it is missing.

Yes, we want to do it, but it's unlikely it will be done. We will think about that only after most part of the campaign is complete.
