Wow, it's been a while since I ever posted a planet wallpaper on HLP! First one in a couple of years, maybe  :P . Anyway, this is the angel moon. It doesn't look exactly like in the game, as you'll probably notice. Who knows? Maybe you'll have this view when piloting your craft!

The problem is that the Angel Moon is inconsistent throughout the games.
In HW1 :



In HWC :



In HW2 :


In your concept, the color makes me think a little more to Kharak, but anyway.

The HWC and HW2 moons are reconcilable, if you assume development on the moon.

Yeah, in HW2 the moon has probably been colonized and/or industrialized since the HW1 era, that's why we see those lights on the dark side.

To me, it looks more like it's WTFPWNED in HW2, than colonized.

Actually the lights of the HW2 moon make me think of Coruscant's lights. But I may be mistaken too.

I've made the moon look like a bit more like the one in HWC - I have a version which looks a bit like the one in HW2, but it ain't very pretty hehe! As for the in-game one, you wouldn't believe how ugly the skybox is at the moment (really, development version at its best). I'll show some when I'm at least finished with the planets and bg effects :P .

I've always like the HW2 Angel Moon. It's supposed to hold a big spot in Hiigaran history, so it didn't make sense to me for it to be just plain grey a la HW1.
