    Hey everyone,

    [Temporary Announcement]

    Here is our HWS 8.0.0 Teaser ( read more in our forum )



    ---


    Welcome to HWS (Homeworld Server). Below you will find some useful and interesting information about the server, our community and us.

    [Quick Introduction]

    HWS started on march 2016 by Jascha and me. Since then we always tried to implement more and more features into the game / HWS and create a big community which enjoy to play the game in Multiplayer.

    We have two servers location in Europe and America with a current active member base of ~ 700 players. In total over 11000 players joined HWS.
    We have over 20 people with a playtime on the server of 1000 hours and looking back at 8 big (new) universe changes so far.

    [Gameplay on HWS]

    Since the beginning we tried to push the game and its possibilities to a next level. Since both Jascha and me are coders we create in that way a tool (EAH) and a website (HWS Connect) which adds a total new gameplay to the game. For example:

    • Orbital Cargo Drone (OCD) which will store your items throughout full wipes (which are needed in the current state of the game)
    • Elemental Bank (EB) which gives you a full economy feature set like pay in/out your credits, have Bank interests, sending money to other people or live your dream and buy / sell ships / play lottery
    • 3 unique to play Origins: Freelancer, Alliance, Lawless. Each of them has their strengths and weaknesses and each of them get unique missions / rewards along the way
    • Reputation System: not only used as a currency but also to play the game as you wish
    • HWS Connect: a website which connects the game to every location you need (smartphone or whatever). It is possible to play the game partially with the website like sending your faction messages from anywhere, manage your OCD or Credits online, check information about the structures built in the universe, see who is guilty on the Hunter Board and more
    • Big community interaction with a Black Market and Elemental Garage where you can buy / sell rare alien artifacts (to boost your RP) or buy / sell special pimped ships
    • A "living" / dynamic universe with rotational playfields from PvP to PvE and warp destinations mapped to specific times
    • (PDA) Missions to boost your Singleplayer experience even in a Multiplayer game and hunting this way for big rewards - dependent on your Origin you have chosen
    • Much, much more really like Story driven start locations, NPC Traders, Orbital Auto Miner, Helping Centers, unique and lots of POIs and Cross Server Warp, which ultimately connects both universes - EU and NA - together

    HWS Skill Tree gives you the unique addition to enhance your ingame Player stats such as up to 1000 health instead of the default 500



    [HWS Guide / Help / Commuinty]

    We try to update our big guide everytime and as soon as possible to help you with the questions and rules we have on HWS.

    In general HWS is quite complex and not as easy as you expect but once you learned some stuff (which is also possible within the game with our ingame PDA) then you might like the new gameplay.

    Last but not least again: the most important thing and what we are proud of is our community. They are not only helping us in running these expensive servers but also beginner by helping them as good as they can.

    Thank you all for making HWS a nice and never boring place where everyone from everywhere can play.

    Your HWS Team

    Hey everyone,

    our full wipe yesterday was more or less successful. A new meta with 30 warpable playfields but still not taking away the 100+ PF fun begin.
    It was a big challenge to achieve that and we hope you enjoy.

    I updated the verified server information to reflect BP Class 3 and other changes.

    Read here the full patch notes for HWS 6.X

    • New PvP planets (themed by Freelancer > Rheinland)
    • New Missions - one of it will be released soon as a dedicated Scenario in the workshop!
    • New balancements of our Origins (e.g. Guardians getting more Reputation Points now)
    • A new EGS "service" has arised - EGS Star. Only SVs can enter. CVs will get destroyed!

    Hey @everyone,

    the preparations for HWS 7 have begun and as you know HWS 7 / Alpha 7 will be as awesome as we possible can make.
    We all know that HWS 6 / Alpha 6 had its ups and mostly downs. Performance, bugs, Sanctuary Server, Universe, etc.
    We all know this. We all learned lessons. Only mistakes can teach you how to improve.

    So please participate in the poll in our dedicated forum:

    https://forum.empyrion-homeworld.net/t/hws-7-origins-poll/7217

    Thank you very much.

    Your HWS Team

    Hey everyone,

    after 2 weeks of hard work I'm happy to announce a full redesign of the whole HWS website.
    The old website / design was done by a kind of need for the first presence on the web. But it was more harder to maintain the structure and the code over time.
    I tried to simplify things and only focus on important stuff now.

    It comes with two themes and for course smartphone optimized:

    View attachment 30834

    View attachment 30835

    View attachment 30836


    A lot of code and thoughts went into it - from the smart sidebar with custom discord integration and server player counter sync till refactoring structures and text.

    Also HWS Connect got a big redesign and new feature

    View attachment 30837


    HWS Connect Daily Loot

    It was my goal since the beginning to play Empyrion to certain extend over a website from anywhere. The first and biggest change is made!
    Click on a button and get every 24 hour a little neat loot package as you know it from mobile games ;)

    View attachment 30838

    A lot more is possible in the future... stay tuned!

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I loved to code everything!

    If you want to read more and what is coming in HWS 7 go ahead in our HWS Forum.

    Thanks for your patience until HWS 7 with a lot of feedback and improvements coming!

    Hey everyone,

    after a long path we are finally in Alpha 7 / HWS 7!

    hws-7.jpg

    The changelog for HWS 7 is very long so just let me highlight the best and most important things - but as always you are welcome to read everything up in our forum.

    * the redesign of the website was a good preparation for over 120 player joined on the release date, giving all of them a better experience and chance to get the Daily Loot crate from HWS Connect

    * a whole new universe with a lot of new features and easter eggs

    [​IMG]

    * change to Class 7 (popular PvP planets class 1 for best PvP possible)

    * merge of our 5 Origins into 3. Alliance - Freelancer - Lawless

    * a brand new and overworked story start. Singleplayer tutorial made possible on a Multiplayer server.

    * HWS Garage is now 100% complete and more unique than before. Buy awesome premium ships created by @DeeExpus and as soon as one is bought see the next coming in few minutes.

    hws-7-garage-teaser.JPG

    * New PDA missions and more to come

    * Set a Bounty on someone ingame or soon over the website with few mouse clicks

    * Dynamic faction supply packages - the more Reputation Points you have, the bigger your supply crate

    * And much more... but all of that has settled us now and from now on we will improve everything what we have rather than releasing new stuff. Thanks to the community it is now time to polish things we have until perfection.
    Thanks for being part of that!

    See you in space... and remember who you are :)

    Your HWS Team

    I played your server before. Was thinking of hoping in again. Quick question though, does OAM allow aquisition of rare ore?

    Hello Goffender,

    yes, with OAM you can gather almost all resources in the game, rare ones included. (rare Ores are produced slower than common Ores)
    However you need Auto Miner Cores to fuel them and be in the EGS Zone to get the Ores for free out.
    Thanks for your interest and see you soon in the universe.

    Hey everyone,

    after a very interesting weekend we are back to a "stable" Alpha 7.5 and a new HWS season 7.X!

    First of all I want to thank all of the players who joined and we are very glad that our hard work paid off!
    With 177 out of 177 players on EU and over 110 players on NA we were very happy about such a smooth start.
    Thanks guys!

    What might be a reason for these numbers are for example our new HWS 7.X teaser here (awesome thanks to Achilles):




    New Gameplay by a new Config

    In season 7.X it is all about the Config A.F.T worked hundreds of hours on. Deep thank you for that too! With his thousands over thousands experience in Empyrion and one of the best and oldest PvP veteran of the whole game he created probably the best balance for our PvPvE server.

    As you can see in the video, especially PvP is now as we / the community always wanted it to be.
    The main idea was to boost PvP bases a lot while giving each ship a real purpose again.

    • So BAses with four artillery turrets and major turret / block HP refinements are what they should be: fortresses
    • CVs for example are more aligned to motherships now: slow but powerful. Battles won't last in stalemates anymore so easily
    • SVs have a major rebalance so each gun makes sense now again. Dogfights are for real again.
    • HVs are BAse busters. Especially in a group very powerful.
    • Alien Turrets are homing now. Finally you will get scared and not dodge everything with one hand easily.
    • and much more like template changes to make trading and PvE more fun again, stat changes, NPC changes, etc.


    But it is an iteration process and we are working on it non-stop still.

    Also the PvE community got not only new POIs, fitting to the new Config meta, but also a boost in the HWS Story and the revenge of the Aliens.
    Worth to try it out. But be warned again: it is very different from your previous game experience.

    ( we have also a MANPADS / Stinger now :) )



    ===

    Other than this big thing we did some other adjustments

    • additional Freelancer RP gain system
    • implemented a lot of new POIs
    • refactored a lot of planets / implemented new one. Homeworld is now the most important planet again - you will see


    ===

    And more to come with HWS Connect 3.0. A new game experience will come with that and I'll need still some time to code it.

    Stay tuned and thanks again everyone!

    Have a great season and see you in space.

    Your HWS Team
