Five shipsets using ships from Homeworld 1

from the Kushan, Taiidan, Turanic Raiders, Derelict and Kadeshi factions.

I released an earlier version some months ago featuring only Kushan and Taiidani, but this version are drastically improved for use with Distant Worlds as well as featuring the three new shipsets. The philosophy of these shipsets is to try to preserve Homeworld's flavor and elegance; mostly this is expressed as using duplicate images for most freighters.

A moderate amount of kitbashing was necessary, especially for space stations and for the ancillary factions.

All five shipsets are in the .zip. You can extract the zip to the Distant Worlds Universe\images\units\ships directory and the ships will show up in the image list. Alternatively, you can overwrite an existing shipset with the images from one of these folders or implement it as a mod.

family27 - Kushan
family28 - Taiidan
family29 - Turanic
family30 - Derelict
family31 - Kadeshi

EDIT - argh, my webhost is screwed. Preview images are down. :(

Great stuff! I loved the Homeworld series. Apparently there's a new game coming from the original team behind Homeworld, I think some time next year.

I'm thinking of trying my hand at a quasi-TC. Between Homeworld, Cataclysm, and Homeworld 2, there's enough factions and shipsets to get the job of variety done. Vanilla shipsets can be used for various races mentioned in fiction, such as the Frerrn Aggregate.

the real problem is the homeworld 2 ship files, I haven't tried my hand at converting those to useable sprites. Cataclysm shouldn't be hard.

Update: basic preview images in OP, new preview images for Cata factions.

These are done but i'm tweaking still and trying to get my webspace back. Godaddy's being obstinate.

WIP:

Excel balance sheet for almost-total Weapons Tech conversion
Taiidan High Guard ion frigate



How did anyone get anything done before conditional formatting, anyway?
