I'm afraid you won't be able to run the mod on your own machine no matter how many tutorials you follow. We don't distribute the server files, so you're missing important chunks of the mod.
Discovery will also ban you is your frame rate is too high because it causes problems with the networking. We enforce it in the software instead.
No, this is a limitation of Freelancer.
Join us on our Discord and we should be able to help: Discord.gg
We do not support Windows XP. I'm afraid you're on your own, sorry.
You'll want to go to this website and download the update for your operating system: Support.microsoft.com
Single player will not be available. Baseside stuff will be removed from the mod at a later date and replaced with a new UI.
I have serious doubts that Star Citizen will ever have a strong modding scene. CryEngine is *not* mod-friendly and the game is so heavily focused on selling ships with real money, making mods available (and thus opening the gates for people just unlocking all ships with a mod) sounds counterintuitive. They also have been extremely evasive about what kinds of servers people could host - the current best guess is that you'd only have "deathmatch" servers, with the persistent universe being exclusive to the official (and thus unmodded) servers.
There's a reason why we're still on Freelancer: it remains the best platform for making a persistent universe space sim mod.
We've also not said our last word yet. We're just trying to round off the mod a bit so it's friendlier to solo players and new players in the hope of achieving higher player numbers.
Go to the forums and make a new account. We can't support people properly in the comments section.
Digitally? No, sadly. Amazon is known to sell discs in certain regions, but you'll need to get them shipped over. That's the only method of obtaining the game legally, although some people might lecture you about how the game is abandonware at this point.
No ETA, might not even be possible. It's doubtful that we'll release the hook to individuals, there is just too much in there that could be used for nefarious purposes and I frankly don't care to take the necessary time to explain how things work. Chances are we'll only give it to people who'll already somewhat know what to do with it. As for singleplayer, we won't make any effort to make it work but nothing in the graphics hook that I can think of would be incompatible with SP.
You sure seem intent on trying to get us to give our hard work to the most terrible and despicable people who have ever associated with the community, don't you?
No, we will not. Never. Stop asking, it's getting extremely tiring.
There's no confusion. The CF devs have been barred from using our work due to the despicable attitude they have had with us in the past (well, that's not entirely fair - most CF devs are fine, it's OP we have problems with, and for good reasons at that). We don't have to give our work to anyone, but we thought it would be a good thing to do. Doesn't mean we have to give it everyone.
The original idea is "how to make hyperspace interesting". I rarely care about lore, gameplay goes first.
The old system was perhaps more canonical, but it wasn't fun. This one is.
That odd symbol is percentage, but it seems like ModDB screws it up.
"percentage" hud grav
One of our priorities will be to make missions more readily available, so you won't have to hunt down the specific bases that give them out. The AI director should also hopefully help direct you towards areas of interest, such as viable trade routes or interesting combat.
By not visiting the forums, you're missing critical points in how the mod works, such as hyperdrives (which you need to use to get around). We're trying to make it easier for people like you to get to know the mod, but that'll have to go through some reading or a modicum of interaction with the forums, unfortunately.
You can already join multiple factions, but were limited in the ships available to you. We're lifting this limitation. People want to be able to play with their friends, and that might mean across different factions. We want to allow this without gimping the players switching between two factions. This is exactly the same as having two separate characters in two different races or factions in games like WoW or Planetside 2.
You still have a lot of choice, and many consequences, with this. Certain clans won't allow multifactioning, for instance, and you can't expect to gear up two ships in different factions as effectively.
We're removing the STARTER ships, which means the Z-95 Mark I (which is different from the standard issue Z-95!), the old Y-Wing and the broken YT-1300. Those will be replaced by the X-Wing, the normal Y-Wing and a variety of trade vessels. This is a change everyone should appreciate.
Joining no faction at all is still possible, we've never said we're removing civilian affiliations.
While peeking around I discovered that I also got a 1. Misclick, surely?
You wait until the final release is out with the server files. You can also sometimes find test events on the main server where people can get temporary access to certain ships.
You can, but only as a "recruit" character with a significantly limited ship list.
Because we'd rather put our manpower towards ships of the correct era. When you have limited capabilities, you have to choose.
Also, most of the dev team dislikes the prequels :P
No, and it won't, either. DX8 is deprecated.
It's hard to convey tone over comments. I'm going to guess people assumed ill intent, as is extremely frequent on the internet.
The launcher is designed to work with any number of copies of FL so long as you have at least one clean vanilla copy to point it towards. I'd suggest you give it a go first.
Also, no, we don't support offline users right now. You can't play offline anyway, since you need to be on the main server.
We'll only handle support requests from the main forum: Freeworldstidesofwar.com
We want to reduce incorrect bug reports and avoid people having issues and deciding to give up without saying anything. Keeping everyone on the main server is the best way to do this.
No, there'll be a time for joining factions, but that time has yet to come. All will be explained, don't worry.
