Born of a dissatisfaction with Homeworld 2, the Homeworld:@ team is building upon the foundations of Homeworld and Homeworld:Cataclysm to create a faithful sequel in the Homeworld:2 engine, with new ships, storyline, and game mechanics.

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Demo campaign announcement and call for testers.

0 comments by EatThePath on Jul 26th, 2014

I come to you with an announcement and a request. First first, we've been working on campaign missions, and it's proceeding well. Rather than focus on our 15+ mission main campaign outline, I created a small two mission outline as a tune-up. Think of them as a demo, a small story set in the same universe but not directly a part of the main campaign story.

The first mission of this pair, pictured above, is quite playable at this point, though there's a lot of tuning and content creation left for it. One other note about the mission, it makes use only of fully textured models, so no flat-colored rectangles distracting you from the experience, but many of the ships aren't perfectly matched with their use. For example, the Vaygr heavy harvester is being used as a Taiidani cargo ship, and corvettes are hyperspacing because we don’t have a proper support frigate to ferry them into the mission. As more proper ships become available in future releases these missions will be updated to use them, with some potential for changes in how the mission plays based on the different ships.

Now the request: To make sure the mission is both fun and stable I'd like some fresh eyes testing it. Testers will likely be asked to play multiple versions of the mod, will probably have to deal with annoying bugs, and will be expected to provide feedback on their experience even if they hit no bugs. Testers will also be given versions that lack all the finished content that surround the gameplay, so if you want to play it for the first time with all that stuff already there, don't apply for testing.

If you want to test the mission, please PM me directly. If response is strong enough I'll be limiting the number of testers for my own sanity. This post will be edited when testing is closed.

Thank you all for following the mod. Response to the last release was encouragingly strong, and I hope we'll have exciting new things for you to play soon.

Back to life?! That's awesome!! :D

Buuuut ... what is this? "Hiigara" misspelled?! Thumbs down! XD

Nah, seriously, glad that this mod is in development again (or better, just for the announcement that it's still ongoing).

For us, we've settled on the Higaara spelling years ago. It should be consistently spelled that way throughout the documentation. Like it or not, it is deliberate. :)

I'm curious. Why did you choose Higaara and not Hiigara?

When we started out writing our material, it seemed ambiguous what the right one was. There was at least one instance in the Homeworld 1 subtitles where it was spelled Higaara, and that seemed closer to the pronunciation we liked from the game voiceovers, so we went with that. Now it seems that Hiigara is the accepted canon spelling, but by this point I like having that point of divergence as another way to distinguish our material from Homeworld 2.

Well, can't say that I agree how the spelling matches the pronunciation, but I can respect the reasoning and choice.

I've always spelled it Hiigara because of the fact that spelling of Hiigarans match it, its just how I've always done it but I can understand and respect the reasoning for using the other spelling.

P. S.: After checking the images on your website, I can't do otherwise than to express my astonishment for those very detailed and really beautiful models.

Great work! :)
