Homeworld 2 Mod — In the Orbit of God

In Eskel culture, God is not something supernatural. God, in fact, is clearly defined:
66% hydrogen, 24% helium, 8% methane, and, 2% other gasses.
Diameter: 192,628 kilometers.
Satellites: 108 (Excluding objects less than 1 kilometer in diameter).

This Homeworld 2 mod, set in Andromeda 50,000 years in the past, lets players command the nation of Thiiei (is that enough “i’s” for you?) and engage in inter-orbital combat around “God,” a gas giant.

The main focus is on realism and tactical combat, with intense small-scale battles. Research has been replaced by a subsystem based tech-tree, and custom maps will bring out more interesting styles of gameplay.

Check out this trailer from 2010:

Am I crazy to find a soothing serenity within that footage of spaceships blowing each other to Kingdom Come?

I think we’re about due another Homeworld.
