Looking at the Gearbox gameplay video, "Remastering" this mod is gonna be a lot of work...
Different aproach though. Will start from the ground up, quality over quantity, more pure, without some of the experimental side projects, only the ships and features that really made sense will make the transsition. Don't expect a Triple Laser Corvette or Vaygr Support Frigate to make it...
No Kadeshi, no localisation, no explosion damage (AI don't get it anyway).
Ally races? I suppose not, or not yet. To make something meaningful it's going to have to be Hiigaran and Vaygr only.

I think the simple start is to convert the Hiigaran Supercarrier, Vaygr Missile battlecruiser, Hiigaran Modular Destroyer, Vaygr Artillery Frigate and Hiigaran Cloak Fighter and start with it. Release just that in the HD graphics as soon as it's done. And start from there.

I have no idea what Steam Workshop practically is... But soon enough I'll know it through and through.

Do we want High Command? I don't think anyone plays that, but I'd guess it wouldn't crash the game now.

Yeah, lots. But we have reports of 200 Destroyers on the scene running smoothly, so I'm optimistic.

That thing: Moddb.com

It's simply that when you build ships, BCs come in pairs, when you build a Destroyer there's 4 of them, Frigates comes in formations of 8 etc. Plus there are some tweaks to reduce micromanagement.

It's a large scale battle game mode.

I'm really happy that you are still involved in this awesome mod, it really enhances the original game and i always make sure to play R.E.A.R.M. whenever i want to play Homeworld 2.

We're all excited by the HW Remastered Collection, and i was already concerned about not having the modular destroyer, Vaygr MBC and all the other cool units you crafted.

But it seems you are willing to continue this project and i'm relieved.

As you said, i think it would be better to focus on characteristic units first and maybe on a later stage you could see if HC can be implemented successfully.

Personally, i rarely found myself playing in HC mode, but that's mainly because of the massive lag / crashes it caused on the old engine, though Remastered Collection might not have this issue thus making HC a viable mode.

Best regards, VWV.

Why is it so long since 0.0.3a Has there been any issues with 0.0.3a or are you waiting for Remastered Homeworld to come out?

Do you have the game patched to the version 1.1? That's always the case.
