Apparently the opposite, but it's mainly just a revamp of graphics. Much better than just an HD upscale.

>Are you excited for Homeworld Remastered Collection? Launch is only a day away, and we still have plenty of cool new features left to tell you about.

>Throughout development, we’ve been working with the original creators of Homeworld to make sure it’s been remastered with the love and care it deserves. Once we launch, we’re excited to be joined by another collaborator: you! Homeworld Remastered Collection will offer tools for the community and will support mods, allowing for some incredible opportunities for you guys to create cool stuff.

>At launch, we’ll have a Steam Workshop tool available that will allow you to upload and download mods, and based on your feedback, we’ll be adding more functionality post-release. Classic mods can also be uploaded, so your original Homeworld 2 Classic mods can be uploaded to the Steam Workshop!

>We’ll have a guide on Mod Tools available on Steam after launch, so stay tuned for more details!

Sad thing about this is you can't get that novel thick manual with the game like hw1 and cataclysm. Apparantly they made enough fluff content for a hw2 manual but it didn't get made for some stupid reason. Actually this makes me think, when's the last time you got a game that came with a manual? Guess it was either before games startes to get really casual or when tutorials became more useful.

cataclysm sourcecode is gone.

AoE2 HD had a shit ton of input lag for multiplayer in the beginning. How will Homeworld's multiplayer not be exactly the same, especially since it's made by Gearbox?
>>
>>284628162
Well, at the very least, if you can't, the original games are included as well if you need your fix of salvage corvette action.

They seem to have kept the differences between the races in each games intact, like how you control individual fighters if You're using Kushan/Taiidan, and formations if you use Hiigaran/Vaegyr, so salvage fun might still be possible.

I usually agree, but Awolnation is better than most of it. A couple of his other songs are actually ok

I'm assuming this a troll post, but I will say that adiago for strings is fucking great, and the version in this game is the best I've ever heard.

I think it's fine to enjoy Awolnation - Sail and still enjoy "Sophisticated" music.

>>284624396
Shipbreakers is being done by the original homeworld team.

The guy who wrote the script/plot/story for it wanted to do it as a prequel to Homeworld, except without the Homeworld bits, since they didn't have the IP.

When they started to crowdfund the project (Originally going to be F2P) they caught attention from Gearbox (Who had just acquired the Homeworld IP) because their art and design looked so similar to Homeworld.

Gearbox asked them if they'd be interested in porting their game over to the Homeworld universe, they agreed. (and little did gearbox know, the game was already based on the homeworld universe anyways, so hardly anything needed changing)

Once they were hired on, gearbox also got them to help out with the Homeworld 1, 2 remastering; they got in touch with old friends, voice actors, etc. and got higher quality original audio, original sketches and storyboards, new audio, etc.

Now the game is going to be a standard release, rather than F2P, and is presently still in development by the original homeworld team.
