USE DOWNLOAD to get full-sized version with each panorama 1600x480 pixels big.

Compilation of awesome space backgrounds from strategy computer game Homeworld 2 by Relic Entertainment. I used editing tools to extract them from the game, so everyone can enjoy them.

Smashing job extracting these! How do you map them? To a sphere or something?

It was a complicated import/export job done in several stages. It was done years ago, so I don't remember 100% - is it important for you?

Not so much, I was wondering because I am a big fan of HW series, and I was wondering how hard is to get this... sounds complicated :)

//?Thank you SO MUCH! I've been looking for these to remake the Homeworld intro-cut-scene in Maya, and you just made my day.

How did you get these out? I was looking into getting them all individual without watermarks.

WOW, great!

Instant :+fav:!!!

But ... how the **** were you able to extract those backgrounds? What programs were you using?

Wow, these are pretty good looking--is there a way to get a nice high-res individual image rather than a compilation?

Did you try downloading the full-sized picture? Each panorama is 1600x480 pixels large there.

Ah, no--sorry. My brain is pretty much dead to the world right now. Thanks again for extracting these though!
