Finally we have some news to share. CnlPepper is still hard at work tweaking the weapon and hit effects to bring them up to the visual standards of the rest of the mod.
Meanwhile I've finally pulled myself together to finish the Orion Nebula background I've been working on. It has now been released on the SVN.
Of course it wouldn't be much fun without a map to use it with, so I've converted the map Hostilities End from the normal Homeworld 2 game to the area capture gamemode and changed the background to the Orion Nebula one. This as well has been released on the SVN.
Have fun with it.
CnlPepper edit: Also, thanks to snake we have a superb new UI for the area capture game type, try it out and give us you comments!
