Homeworld HD/CE Survey

Gearbox Software is conducting a Homeworld Survey to poll the community for opinions on how they should deal with their recently acquired IP for the space strategy series. The survey starts with general gaming questions and then drills into Homeworld, investigating awareness of the franchise before introducing the Homeworld HD concept and gauging how much gamers might be willing to pay for an updated version of Relic's first installment in the series. They also question whether there is interest in a Collector's Edition, how much such a collection would be worth, and what items it could include to inspire your purchase. They also ask similar questions about willingness to buy a Homeworld art book. Thanks nin via Polygon.

Honestly, this is something modders could probably do in their free time in 6 months. It's really not that much work.

I'm actually rather surprised this hasn't happened already. A bit of Googling around seems to indicate that the source code to Homeworld actually was released... and after seeing what insanity the community did to Freespace 2 using it's source code (i.e. Diaspora) I'd love to see what could happen with Homeworld.

Although I know this is utterly contingent on the right kinds of individuals being available (and having the time to do it). I'd be extremely hesitant to say that an HD upgrade of the original game would be "really not that much work" though, as it would likely involve gutting a lot of core components to bring the game up to modern-day standards. Freespace 2 has only gotten to where it was after many years of effort from some extremely dedicated and talented individuals.
