I don’t know why this didn’t occur to me sooner, but… why not add RR into the HWR campaign?
For those who don’t know, Raiders’ Retreat was planned to be the original mission 5, a scenario where the player had to stop and destroy several fleeing Turanic ships before they reached their base. The mission was only found in a demo version of Homeworld, as it had been cut from the final version of the game (along with several other cut missions, which would have had the player facing a fourth enemy faction- which remains in the game files as P3, the owners of the lava-ship which appears at the end of the game- after defeating the Empire at Hiigara).
However… it strikes me that HWR is the perfect vehicle for it to become part of the game again. I mean, there are enough changes to the game that it’s already not really the same experience, so why not throw in some cut content (and it was a damn fun mission, make no mistake) to even out the loss of other features?
Wouldn’t it be cool if it showed up as DLC later? Eh? How 'bout it? There’s a prime opportunity here!
I am totally not motivated by a selfish desire to salvage even more missile corvettes. This is my trustworthy face. Honest.
