    Post Homeworld Universe Map

    I don't think many of you are familiar at all with Relic Entertainment's Homeworld, but suffice to say they didn't provide a very clear and concise map of their universe. So I decided to make one.

    This originally started out as a map for a modification of "Homeworld 2", but differences with the creative team there forced me away. I returned to the map and made it into what you see here.

    It was constructed by what I could find from concept art and maps that were given in two of the three games (the third is questionable in regard to canonical). Suffice to say, even THIS map is inaccurate, and I have another version on hold that draws from even more sources I and others have managed to extract from the game.

    Even Relic has commented on it, wondering if a final version was ever going to be completed.

    Be warned that the image is a little big...

    Wow, that's pretty darn cool. Hope we see more.

    About all I know about HomeWorld is that YES wrote some of the soundtrack.

    Nice job... have some more 'rep' for uploading a map in your very first post *bonk*

    Nice map! I played Homeworld 1 and 2 and loved the game. Hopefully Homeworld 3 comes out soon.

    Another Homeworld player here. I think I even reviewed it for what was then the largest gaming magazine in the Netherlands.

    Great map and you have been repped! Lots of flavor and it's really cool looking.

    I absolutely love this map. Played Homeworld years ago, I seem to remember it was groundbreaking in its day but my puter couldn't handle it.
