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.

We started the development of the Kushan campaign. And more comments.

Posted by on

Well, the last days have been ... interesting:

  • GEARBOX appeared and took the HW IP. The funeral is cancelled. Let's see what comes ahead;
  • BLACKBIRD started the pre-sales phase of HARDWARE:SHIPBREAKERS, a great game coming soon;
  • FX-MOD published new material with Taiidani and Turanic ships. It's impressive and promising.

On our MOD, we have begun to study how to develop the Kushan campaign. It was proposed that Moleman join us, since he is studying SP missions for his MOD. So we are all over finishing the Turanic Raiders ships and structures for M1 and M2, recovering speech files, tons and tons of codings and tweakings.

In parallel, we started moving on from SugarSync to SVN/Tortoise as a management system for the project. If we approve, which is most likely, SVN's version numbering system will be adopted. It will also help us sum up better the changes from one release to another.

We've suspended/changed the next release. We haven't stopped working on it. We need to study and establish the research trees, the research ships game-play and behavior. And the Youtube VIDEOS will be displayed at moddb too.

Moleman, welcome aboard, enjoy your stay and we hope to reach Hiigara sooner than we expect ; ]

It should be said that Gearbox has agreed to meet with BBI at E3. Could this be a meeting to discuss the details of a joint-development? Stay tuned for more.

Makes me so incredibly happy to not only come across this site but to see that Gearbox picked up the IP. Homeworld NEEDS an HD update or a rerelease for the current generation.

Are You guys going to be releasing more news anytime soon? I love all your ship renders, but a general news update would be great. Otherwise, keep up the great work! :)
