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.

Recently gotten back into HW2 and this mod looks great, but it crashes while loading a player vs cpu game. I'm on a Mac and have the latest mod download and HW2 v1.1. Any ideas?

We're in a slow patch right now, but development has happened since the last release. There are more features and content in the pipes, even if the pipes aren't flowing particularly fast right now.

I installed the mod but when i try to play the first mission on single player i follow the objectives and get to the ships but it does not trigger but only two sets of ships and the mission does not progress. And on top of that two gunships in that mission and the mothership in skirmish mode has not texture at all its just white is that normal?

>.< I always forget to disable the campaign level before release, though I think you're the first to comment on it. The mission is heavily a work in progress and not done in the slightest. It currently just doesn't work. Many ships are without textures or even completed models, new releases will happen as new ships get completed and ready for showtime.

Something like that, yeah. I hope the skirmish modes can hold your interests for a while. :)
