More than five new ships? Like six?

Could even be 7, if you play your cards right...

Ya, it's been out in Russia for a good deal of 2003. I wasn't aware that an English version was done however(due to the lack of a publisher to fund it).

Whatwhatwhat?! You mean it's actually a released game? Homeplanet's been on my list of games to look for a while now, had no idea it was actually finished, but they can't find a publisher. Man, that sucks!

The Russian developer actually made a post saying they'd offer ISO's to interested parties in the US. It was on their forum a while ago, I'm not sure if the offer still stands.

It's a pity that they can't find a publisher in North America to release the game; the design is really quite good, and we're in desperate need of a new Space Sim around here.
