This Mod changes the textures of Freelancer to improve the details. Also more depth was added to the textures and most of them have got a higher resolution. It was the goal to remove those blurred textures if you are close to a planet and keep the "vanilla-Freelancer-feeling". Textures for stations, the dockring, planets, nebula and some ships are included. Because it only changes the texture-files it runs on most of the vanilla-Freelancer-Servers and also in Singleplayer-Mode. You will need the Freelancer Mod Manager (FLMM 1.31) to use the mod. You can find more screenshots and information on the website: www.HD-FL.de.vu

Do you mean the Discovery Freelancer Mod?
No, the Discovery Mod contains his own mat-files for textures with some new stuff e.g. for their new models.
So the HD Textures 1.2 Addon can't be used in combination with the Discovery Mod because it would overwrite the needed textures in the mat files with "nothing". (The HD Textures are based on the original FL-files.)
The result can be an "invisible" shipmodel or crashes.
Please have a look at this topic:
The admins don't give their permissions to use the Discovery Mod and HD Textures 1.2 at the same time.

But HD Textures is compatible to some optional mods like the HC-Mod. ;-)
Also it's included (soon) in some other mod projects like the Monkey Universe.

Does the HD pack affect client purity? i.e. can a client with the pack modded in still connect normally to a non-enabled server, or are the texture files checked against each other as well as the core game files?

@sasasa: You can install the mod with the Freelancer Mod Manager. (FLMM)

@klassen.t: The mod isn't an advantage or cheat. If you use this texturepack you can still connect to a normal "vanilla" Freelancer server. The server needn't the texturepack.
But watch out(!): Some servers also block texturefiles and mark you as a cheater. If you are not sure about this, just ask the admin if you can use this mod.
