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 really love the idea of this and hope to see a release soon (just wished HW2 worked on my computer.)
I was wondering if you will be remastering Cataclysm as well?
Cause ya'know that would be awesome.

I'm assuming by your description you mean you'll be recreating the campaign... Does that mean you'll be remastering all the NPC ships aswell? Such as the Bentusi, Junkyard Dog, Kadesh, the lot?

Just like Radar said, first the main 2 races, although theres a few npc done already, the Junkyard Dog - Media.moddb.com is one of them.

If it hasn't already been discussed, I'd like to propose and perhaps vocalize a collective opinion that, in all honesty, not many of us would mind simply seeing HW2 Bentus in the HWR campaign.. saves you guys a bit of time remastering a ship that didn't rightly look that great anyway :P HW1 Bentus that is.

It's a minor thing, but I don't think anyone would be too sad to see original Bentus go and new Bentus return, haha. idk about anyone else, but IMHO HW1 Bentus is kinda cool n retro while HW2 Bentus is frakking desktop Wallpaper material.

You realize that the 'HW1 Bentus' is not Bentus. Right? Think of Bentus as the Mothership and the Trade Stations are carriers.

Right- Relic threw me for a loop with the identical sounding voices. Still, would cut these fine gentlemen's workload and I personally wouldn't be heartbroken. I just want my HW1 campaign on 2's engine, and quick :D

Yes, we plan on including the campaign (work on it is progressing slowly though), so that means, yes, those ships will be done as well, although our priority at the moment is fleshing out the Kushan and Taiidan races first.

Wouldn't work. I also think Homeworld is much more diverse than SOASE.
