I will revisit the main hull texture once i fully understand the new 2.0 Shaders that are being incorporated into HW2 by the guys on the relic forums.
Hi there czacen. It's been a while since I last checked this mod out. I drifted completely off homeworld modding for quite a while there and stopped playing the game completely.
It seems you've come a long way since I dropped off the map.
In the mean time though, I've come back to the fold so to speak. I'm actually part of the team who developed the new shaders. (Of course CnlPepper is the single driving force behind that part.)
I dropped in to say that if you need help or tips with the new shaders, feel free to visit our forum
and get your answers straight from the horse's mouth as the saying goes.
I'm the map making expert on that team btw, so if you want to use any of the maps or backgrounds I've made for that mod for your own, feel free to do so.
I'm a little less than active at the moment while I'm troubleshooting a crash error in my computer, but other than that, I take requests for map background creation. If you can get comprehensive screenshots for the region of space you want a background for, I can make a version for HW2.
Just post the images at our forum if you're interested and I'll take a look at it.
HW2 mods gain a lot from replacing the original backgrounds in terms of mod realism.
