Map of the Homeworld Universe by Norsehound Map of the Homeworld Universe by Norsehound
Dedicated to Relic Entertainment, the staff that works there, Rob Cunningham, and the universe of Homeworld.

believe this or not, but I am contemplating redoing/touching up the map for this year's Relic's Biggest Fan contest.

I think I spent a year total making this map, when all the time is added up together and Relic doesn't think that's enough to say I'm their biggest fan. :\

Homeworld is their only original creation after all.

This map is absolutely gorgeous. Worthy of Homewold's greatness! (I'm a huge fan also :P) But I must ask, where did you find all the information on locations, emblems, timelines, etc... ? Or did you make some stuff up to make it more complete? Either way, I really love to see this sort of fan commitment towards the game. Well done!

True that! I actually have gained a respect for the story in the trilogy and for Relic Entertainment in general.

What's also amazing is that when I played Homeworld 2, I played it in conjunction with Warhammer: Dawn of War as I imagined this to happen every time something gets deployed: monguin.deviantart.com/art/Hii…

I also played the game when i was taking CAD in conjunction with Geometry when I was in high school. The game helped made the learning of two subjects really fun, especially when I was playing it in conjunction with a game based on the table top game, increasing my level of understanding the mathematics of maps.

Awesome! I was wondering, do the other green space factions such as Valhalla and Lagash count as part of the Osyrian Alliance?
Reply
:iconnorsehound:
Norsehound Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013
The Green are galactic council. The Ossyrian alliance is part of the galactic council, but is a council within a council. Ossyria was a microcosm of its own.

Oh, I understand. So, the Valhalla etc. are separate factions but are all in the Galactic Council?
Reply
:iconnorsehound:
Norsehound Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013
Yes. All the green-colored nations are/were members of the Galactic Council. Hiigara kind of stood apart from them because they expanded so quickly. The Vaygr are obviously the Vaygr and the Taiidan have been kind of shunned from the GC based on their tremendous defeat in Homeworld.

The red line across part of the middle of the galaxy is the exile's journey.

Kharak is the left-most point on that route.

I've always wanted to see a map like this!
Can you tell me though what are all the other empires and how they came to be?

Norsehound Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2011
I didn't think that Homeworld was limited to the "canon" races that we've seen in the game. Many of the unfamiliar powers you see on the map are elaborations and creations on my part. Much of it is drawn from Biblical history or other areas of mythology.

dragfie Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
OK.
it would be cool to have seen them in the game though.
and I would love a homeworld 3, maby start up an chain mail of protest and get millions of people to sign it and promis to buy the game when it comes out.
if so we(homeworld fans) should put forward this map and maby make multiple races with unique abilities like in star craft and HW2.

Norsehound Featured By Owner May 14, 2011
The origins of this map can be traced to a similar style drawing I did in photoshop for that mod. Creative differences lead me to break away from that team and try again at creating a map in vector-based format.

What you see is the result of that effort.

This is just ... freakin' EPIC!!!

All the work for this - you said, it took more than one YEAR to make this?!? Just incredible!

It would be great if this map was considered in a new Homeworld (if it ever will be created)!
Besides, these Fractions are supposed to be used in a Homeworld 2 Mod called "Homeworld Universe", right? For example, the Tobari Empire is already featured!

Just imagine this to be a Modification! This would be the mother of all mods!!

BTW: Where the hell are all those names from? Have you taken them from earth's history (like canaan or valhalla) or did you actually invented them?
Reply
:iconnorsehound:
Norsehound Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2011
Some are mined from mythology. I can't recall any names I specifically created... Ossyria might have been one of them.

I doubt Relic will return to Homeworld. I could be wrong, but I feel they've abandoned being original.

I just spent the last 10 minutes reading it :P

I think that this would do very, very well in a Homeworld fan contest. If they just looked around your gallery, they'd give you gold ;)

And, by the way, I would still love to see this as a poster that I could hang on my wall ;)

Norsehound Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2008
The Taiidan Republic was located somewhere south-east of Hiigara. Right now Taiidan's in Vaygr space.

The Republic was corrupt and self-serving in it's latter days and was run over by Makaan when he started his conquest of the core.

Norsehound Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2008
Personally I hope they stay dead and their Imperial cousins make a comeback, wanting their homeworld back (from Republic, Hiigaran, or Vaygr hands) and seeking reparations.

Never was a fan of REPUBLIC = GOOD, IMPERIAL = BAD that Cataclysm seemed to bludgeon players with. Then again, Cata's bludgeoning me with a few bad ideas that's giving me a creative headache. So glad it wasn't acknowledged in HW2...

Scha11enkrieger Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
well i think a republic is ever the better politics system then an imperium. But if the imperium of Taiidan rises again, it has to lead by a young imperator, and has to reach is old greatness. Iam thinking about the ages in were the Taiidan were a proud race full of strengthness, and corrupt and fanatic as they were in the ages in where the exilants return to their home planet. So yes i have to agree that it would be cooler when the imperials rise up again, because i like the color more than this ugly republic colors.

-hm what would you think of an homeworld 2 mod with Taiidan? i dont mean that were only bring in those old hw1 ships, but better improved versions of them, basing on your and Talros sketches? i think this would be a great job.

well let me ask, what was the taiidan ship you liked most? mine are the light corvette and the assault frigate, would be cool to see, what you think they would look like in hw2 style.... i think i will give this a try by myself.

You should post change-log comparing to last version. Would be easier to find what's new :)

Honestly I don't think there's much difference between this and the last one other than the logos are now for every nation and there are some more things added.

However, In light of Relic's Biggest Fan contest I'm thinking of making serious effort on a redux version. I was dedicated before on this version, the next one is of a Zealot.

I don't think you'll be disappointed. The story could have done so much more, but it's not like it stinks to high heaven. It's the job of fans like myself to fill in the gaps Homeworld 2 left open.
