    OMG!!!

    Homeworld, one of my absolute favourite strategy games looking forward to this for sure!
    I wonder if the remastered version will fix the odd turtle LAN lag issue that sometimes pops up despite having very capable hardware?

    They have actually redone all the multiplayer, combined 1 & 2 into one portal so that you just open Homeworld multiplayer and HW1 and HW2 will just be gamemodes to select. They talked about being able to do HW1 units in HW2 engine etc but not sure how far they got with that.

    Re: Homeworld Remastered Reveal

    Yeah some of my fave multiplayer moments have been from the HW series.

    As for Cata, the problem is it was a different company that did it and there is talk that a lot of the assets have been lost. There is some more information here but a lot of it is rumor.

    We can hope

    Re: Homeworld Remastered Reveal

    I've been off rts for quite some time (the excellent offworld trading company notwithstanding) but I really really want this to be epic.

    Adagio for strings still gets me right in the feels. Hopefully they've been able to update the engine successfully and the interviews I've seen really makes it appear to be a labour of love rather than a shameless cash grab but I've been burnt too many times to let myself get really excited.

    Re: Homeworld Remastered Reveal

    http://www.lazygamer.net/review/home...no-mere-relic/

    When Gearbox won the bid to the Homeworld licence, it certainly raised eyebrows, and saw a mix of hope and fear for the franchise, particularly as the new team formed by many of the original Relic developers failed to get it themselves. And then Gearbox announced that, in collaboration with those aforementioned developers, they would be releasing a full remaster of the two main games of the franchise, with a heavy visual upgrade to boot.

    Many a Homeworld fan had to change their pants at that moment. And now, it’s finally here. After seventeen years, Homeworld fans have the opportunity to once again explore the original classic duo, reborn anew with flashy coats of paint. At least, they have the opportunity to do so without resorting to arcane pc magic to get it to work.

    Is it worth it? Here’s a spoiler: It totally is. If you’re a fan of the franchise, you’ll absolutely adore the remastered edition.
    Article goes into details about the changes to the game play mechanics- basically Homeworld 2 remains unchanged mechanics wise but HW1 has been ported into those systems (changing UI, removing fighter fuel, adding research cost, adding wreck salvaging)

    Information about the combined multplayer beta (as they are still balancing) includes a new MP mode called Relic which is a capture and hold mode which sounds very good

    Game unlocks at 7pm tonight on steam, CANT WAIT!

    I wonder what that means for the balance - has HW1 now got HW2's frustrating auto-balance?

    Not sure, he doesn't go into those details.

    Wasn't the auto balance patched into the HW2 1.02 - I remember on release mission 4-5 was next to IMPOSSIBLE but it was patched.

    The original games are also playable, updated to work in Win7/8 but otherwise untouched.

    It was tweaked, but the principle remained the same - if you had a large fleet the next mission was much harder, even if your fleet was completely the wrong composition for the next mission. So you had to meta game and either scuttle or swap over for different units having got pre-knowledge of what was coming up next.

    Re: Homeworld Remastered Reveal

    I never knew that! That would be annoying in the first game as I remember in the penultimate mission, there was a massive sphere of enemy ion frigates guarding something. I would then patiently kite one at a time and use my salvagers to capture it! I then had a stupid number of ion frigates (30+ IIRC) for the last mission!

    This all looks good, but as I said before, modding the remastered game is going to be the most interesting bit for me long term.

    As far as I knew, that was the only way to do that mission! Was either that or kiting them into laid mines.
