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.

2 comments by Krnt on Jun 13th, 2014

Hi people, The HWR mod team is going to be releasing its second demo around this weekend, this demo is going to have some of the most important features of our project like:

-Most of the basic ships from HW1 (up to the Destroyer, Including the Mothership)
-First Campaign mission
-Completely new flight maneuvers for fighters
-Most formations for fighters and corvettes
-Fuel and AI auto dock script
-Complete research tech tree
-Challenging AI
-Ship Test Duel Gamemode (for you to test individual ships in a controlled situation)
-Full multiplayer experience, with new maps and broad gamemode customization (settings for research, resource injections, injections intervals, fuel, a nice variety of unitcaps).

Here is a peek of some of the maps that you are going to be using:

EDIT: Sorry people, we have had some delays because of the 1st mission crashing sometimes at the end (cutting sometime that is already working correctly can lead to bugs), we need a little more time to look out for the bugs, we encourage some patience, because we need it too.

But we got the demo out, even if it like a preliminary version, an update could be out any moment.

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've just thought of more questions... Will you be remastering the soundtracks, cinematics, and backgrounds as well? (And, at a stretch, the voices?)

The soundtracks, cinematics and the voices are perfect just has they are, the is no need to touch them.
The backgrounds we are working on, we have a very talented artist that offered to do them, lets hope he has the time to help us with that, if he does, prepare to be amazed;).

do the AI make comments still during fights? :) like the doubtful "ooooh man..." or, the boastful "I almost feel bad about this.." ?

I loved that.

this is the battle chat: for the moment, we kept HW2's chat. The speeches in HW1 comprises 5000 files. The battle chatter must be together somewhere, but we didn't have the time to deal with this yet.

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.

Moleman restarted one of his MODs: that will deal with the HWC universe to some extent.
We have thought about it and left the decision for a later moment, after HWR would be closer to ready.
But at the moment the answer is "NO", because we want to spend our time improving the quality of HWR and maybe creating new stuff, in a extended mode, after release. We haven't decide anything yet.

I see he has a fairly in-depth progress list in his description to keep everyone in the loop concerning progress- might I humbly request something similar here? Thanks for all your hard work!

Hi Hammer,
For the next release we will have 10 more ships: Hvy corvettes (2), special fighters (2), Std Frigs (2), Resource controller (2) and the research ships (2). Not finished: AI for resop, research tree, lab modules (I think it's not gonna happen), controller's dockpaths, ship icons. We are not far from the next release, but we are out of time and one member less temporarily. Can't tell you more than that for now.

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
