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.

Is it wrong that I can't wait to see the 'Kushan' fleet attack Kharak and burn it to the ground?

(For those of you who are going to scream at me, in both playthroughs as the Taiidani and the Kushan, Fleet Command refers to the fleet as the Kushan fleet.)

Your game must be unpatched then, mine does not have this issue.

Well yes in sorts, as to the original Homeworld 1 you had the ability to choose which race you played, maybe a future feature maybe not, right now they are trying to focus on just getting a fully featured complete campaign to play.

Are there plans to update textures on vanilla fleets as well (ie. Vaygr and HW2 era Hiigaran) I ask because there was a graphics update for these fleets that is no longer available.

Not in the plans of this mod.
You can find different graphics with the same textures in Complex, using their launcher and also in R.E.A.R.M.
But the textures are still the same.

Just to comment: the textures in HW2 are very good, some ships has their own personal texture, some technique applied there you won't find in others.
