FX:Galaxy, commonly known as the FXmod, is a long-term modification project for the Homeworld series that aims to tell the story of the eight main races from the franchise in one game. Started back in 2006, FX:Galaxy continues the legacy of its HW2C predecessor while at the same time tapping into the new modding possibilities that came with the 2015 remaster.
Our goal is to recreate the raw excitement of the original 1999 game in the remaster. At the same time we seek to polish, enhance and expand on the regular Homeworld experience -- while paying close attention to the lore, and making sure the game still is (and feels) 'Homeworld'. Read on to discover the project that has received acknowledgement from Gearbox Software itself.
On Homeworld's 20th Anniversary we officially announced RPG Mode to the public. You can view the RPG Mode-themed newsletters and previews we have posted since here: Newsletter 1, Alpha 0.1 Testroll

"Your work is really good. You’ve been able to do many things that really stand out in the community and impress the guys here." (Source)
-Brian Burleson (Gearbox Software, Senior Producer)
"Possibly the closest Homeworld has seen to an unofficial expansion. A must-play."
-Rockpapershotgun.com, Top 5 Mods for Homeworld Remastered.
"Absolutely love it. Adds far more depth to the game and rids me of my anguish I feel when other races are present in an RTS you can't play as."
-Panther Legion (Steam)
"Great mod! I definitely recommend this to anybody wishing to enhance their experience. Not only are you given extra races to play with (like four from the vanilla game), but each race plays very different from each other."
-Phoenix Rising (Steam)
"Finally got to play Kadeshii, something I've wanted to do since I was five or six. Thank you, sir, for fulfilling my childhood dreams."
-Ixius Uberius Maximus (Steam)
These are other projects, modders and users that we have exchanged or shared our mod's assets with, contributed to the FXmod, or are the rightful owners of some of the assets used in the FXmod. Thank you very much!
If you are interested in using our assets or want to make a trade please send us an email at: email@example.com. Together we will see what the possibilities are. Fellow Homeworld modders, you will find a list of our open-source Homeworld scripts on our team page.
As of 27 July 2015 we only upload stable (tested) releases to our ModDB and main Steam page. The reason for this is that we noticed that each time we update our mod it has new bugs in it, and some of them are very annoying. However, the Steam workshop forces every player to use the latest version of the mod, so people cannot use older, stable versions.
This means that both ModDB and our Steam page will see less frequent releases, but that each release that does appear here will have more content in it and be stable with relatively few bugs.
Users who have access to the Steam version of Homeworld Remastered and enjoy the FXmod can subscribe to our BETA release page (here). BETA releases appear more frequently, but are untested (=likely several bugs). With your help we can track them down faster and finalize the next official release. Thanks for reading.
