depends what features you are looking for really.

True 3D in the battles, .. well Sins is kinda true 3D, except they don't really let you manually move items in 3D space.

If you could specify which things you want to find in other games, I'm sure you'll get some help

But none were as good as the original Homeworld. First time I played it, I was lost to oblivion, what a great story line, very engaging and the creepy music sure added to the ambiance.

You may want to try Eve Online.

I'd also tried Homeworld 2. I'm just looking if there are other games similar to it. I haven't tried EVE online maybe I'll check it out next month still busy this past few days.

there are some awesome HW2 mods kicking about too..

e.g.
RelicNews Forums - Homeworld2 (2.0) [Update: SVN Public]

Check out the lighting effects in the youtube video. Makes the old girl look pretty. It's not in a .big format yet, so I'd hang off a bit longer, but in the meantime, you could try out this one:

Check this out:

Fleet Commander Library <-- and you can use hamachi to play this mod online with mates.

.. now the graphics mod above (first post) isn't complete yet, and therefore isn't rolled up into a .big file. You need to install svn to get it to work. I'll wait a bit longer before using it.. hopefully it will be compatible with other mods.


And, for a bunch of others..

ere are the current completed mods for HW2:
