While I was waiting for it to work itself out, I foundthisand figured it was worth sharing. There's a whole MOCpages community based around the Homeworld universe.

I knew about Pierre Fieschis work, I've been following him on FlickR, didnt knew he had a Mpages account nor made a EU group, thx for sharing man

My copies of Homeworld I and II should be arriving either today or tomorrow. BFenix, you still up for some armada faceoffs? I think I have a good idea of the how game works (I've been watching a loooot of YouTube videos), and should be able to pick it up pretty quickly once I get it.

Great, don't worry you will, its like mastering LDD or Google SkecthUp with any RTS, in space! Bump this once you're on to some fun

I'm probably as ready as I'm gonna get without shittons of practice, so we can have a go at a match this evening. Don't expect to lose, it probably won't happen, haha.

Although, to be fair, I haven't yet played Homeworld 2, just one. I figured I'd start at the beginning of the series (also interestingly enough, it runs almost seemlessly at its highest graphic settings).

I really want to get into the graphics files and take a look at the sprites they used to texture the ships, but I have no idea where they're located. Ah, well. Might go digging about the Relics Homeworld forums for some textures to check out later this evening as well.

Right. Well, anyway, if I find you online I'll challenge you, otherwise I'll hang around until we happen upon eachother (or we decide to schedule a match).

Speaking of which, what are everyone's usernames? For future reference.

Uh. Not sure. And scheduling a match would be the best to do.

Still only played Homeworld I, although I did buy the second one.

Need to install it on my flash drive so I can play it on the family desktop without parents getting on my case about it.

Lets all have a match sometime. I'm shit out of practice, so I probably suck something awful, but it'd still be fun.

I'm game. Installing it now, so I can get the ropes of the second game. We should set up a planned meeting time!
