Thanks for responding to me directly. Homeworld is a classic and it has shaped my entire life. Treat it with the respect it deserves and the community will help you make it right. To me, that also means don’t even think about making money off any sequels until you can prove you understand what made the original(s) so great.
I think you should implement a lobby IRC btw. It would be great if I could access it away from the game, as well. It would go a long way to keeping the online community alive while you’re catching up with this release.
Also, Shift login issues are keeping me and others from logging into the multiplayer.
I know everyone keeps saying “unbalanced”, and truth is, I agree, but I like to look at it like a tactical challenge. For instance, Taiidan vs. Hiigaran, I managed to beat a normal AI using field frigates, something I never used previously, so that was really cool.
That being said, stuff like resources costing money for HW1 races is a no-no. Don’t forget that Homeworld 2 went through a lot of development delays and a couple restarts, so it wasn’t as well formed as the original was. If you have to choose between a HW1 or a HW2 mechanic, I would challenge you to not choose the HW2 mechanic unless you could explain it in a blog post.
Thanks a lot guys, keep it up. At least I got to see Homeworld again.
