Mod Award Nominations



"It was the 23rd Century: mankind’s darkest hour."


That is what we have thought for centuries but we were wrong. A new threat waiting for aeons has moved out of the dark. We have seen them, we have fought them, we have gained an important victory but we were not aware that they were not the only ones hiding between the stars. Now we have stumbled into a galactic war that had been raging ten thousands of years.
Mankind on the loosing side, in the middle of Crossfire.

The Crossfire Mod is by far the biggest and most complex Freelancer modification available. For many years this mod is known for highest quality and innovative ideas which we have introduced to the Freelancer modding scene.
With Crossfire we have build and extended an universe based on the original Freelancer game and its story. Realism and a logical development of the quest based storyline and the game environment such as the systems and the technological development is most important on this mod. Crossfire is not a static mod like most others, it is a dynamic developing environment with dynamic economy, dynamic universe, destructable solars and download content (DLC) which introduces new quests, new ships, new systems and new equipment.

Most important in this mod is the atmosphere.
High quality graphics, high quality music tracks, more than 150 very detailed systems, new voice samples, stunning effects, many challenging quests, ten thousands of small side stories and rumours, fantastic gameplay and hundreds of cool ships. That is the Crossfire mod.

Crossfire 2.0 - 2016 in review


Hello Freelancers,

for a pretty long time I have not announced any news about Crossfire, but hat does not mean that there have not been updates and important changes in the past year.
I personally focused more on community work at www.swat-portal.com and also on updates for Crossfire and other projects.

Early in 2016 there was a big Crossfire update with lots of bug fixes, new ships and also a new singleplayer story mission. In the months after that multiple small updates were released, mainly updating ships and loadouts.
In summer 2016 another big update was released, which focuses on new animations for the game. This big update was followed by multiple small patches which addressed a few minor gameplay issues.






What to expect in 2017?

Just about a week ago I announced another update that I want to release end of December 2016 or beginning January 2017 (depending on how fast I can finish the development and how much extra content I decide to put in).

This new update will introduce the "Dynamic Universe" feature to Crossfire 2.0.
Some people might remember that we had a similar feature in Crossfire 1.83, long time ago.
Due to the complexity of such a feature and due to other priorities, the "Dynamic Universe" didn't make it into Crossfire 1.9 but it is time to add it to Crossfire 2.0 now.

What is the Dynamic Universe?

Basically we will introduce environmental events to the Crossfire universe which shape the systems in a new way and have influence on how the game can be played.
Events might be space weather (radiation after solar eruptions, increasing amount of comets, ion storms, etc.), temporary Jumpgate malfunctions, unstable jump holes, large scale alien invasions, etc.

These events will be available to the players on our official server in first place.
A version of the Dynamic Universe for the OpenSP (open singleplayer) mode might follow later.
The normal singleplayer with the storyline will be unaffected by these events in order to prevent conflicts with the story missions.
As part of this update I will also introduce an improved daily update mechanism, which will close the gap between market updates and server restarts.
This should resolve a few problems for the people which play around the time of the daily maintenance.

What else can be expected?

End of February or in March 2017 another Crossfire 2.0 update will follow.
That update will focus mostly on roleplay adjustments and better support of online clans.
There will be a community meeting to discuss the details.


Story Development

The last story mission (one of the Bonus missions) has been introduced a good while ago.
It is time for new missions to be released in 2017.
I want you to help me with that.
Share your ideas with us at www.swat-portal.com and be part of the development.
Take your chance to shape the world of Freelancer Crossfire.

Also had to reinstall the game to change how Trent looked, I made sure to delete freelancer, crossfire, and remove both from programs list, and then after reinstalling everything the same way, I have had all particles in the game just display as large solid color boxes... Any help? Image: Puu.sh

Nevermind, I guess I had to do that long patch process again. But why does it say I need to patch every time I launch the game? Didn't think it was really needed since I got the latest download from here.

The latest download from here is +1 year old. In the meantime a large amount of patches and new content was released on the fly to the users via the launcher. Every few weeks minor patches and updates get released. And there is a daily update to syncronize the market (and soon the dynamic universe) with the server.

Ah, I see. I appreciate the responses. On another note, I've been trying to read the SWAT forums, but I never receive the confirmation email, even though I tried sending it multiple times. Does it not work with Microsoft email? And why is it necessary to prevent even reading forum posts without an account?

Id blame the microsoft account. My hotmail account also seems to eat mails from specific sources.
Dunno why.

I have activated your account manually now.
Reason for the restriction is pretty simply... the SWAT Portal is a community... not a wiki. We want active users which communicate.
Next to that are read permissions bound to specific usergroups due to the fact that we support multiple games.

Make sure you run everything as admin and that Freelancer installation folder is not "Read only".

If you have the same menu then not.
You clearly would see the difference between vanilla FL and Crossfire on first sight.

Most likely the mod manager installed it into the wrong directory. Check your FLMM settings and select your vanilla FL folder there.

Crossfire is the best looking Freelancer mod. Hard to believe that this game was released seven years ago.

I love the tune up to the area and especially to Trent himself. But i find that with the increase in difficulty, space battles in SP take a very long time. This i can deal with as it makes the battles themselves more interesting and unpredictable. However i find myself getting annoyed during the first mission that character Beta 4 is destroyed before i've managed to kill 1 enemy. This happens over and over most tries lasting under a minute resulting in me quitting the game. If players are forced…
