Overview

Discovery Freelancer expands on the original Freelancer storyline by rebalancing the game to, as close as possible, suit a Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing experience, adding many new technical features and game content, as well as developments in existing story arcs and lore.

Players are invited to immerse themselves in the roleplay environment and frame their created characters from scheming mercenaries in light fighters, to admirals of huge capital ships, build their own in-game bases and factories for equipment such as cloaks and jump drives, dock and launch from other players’ carriers, and introduce themselves to both new and old factions in populated or unpopulated corners of space.

The Mod has been continuously enlarged and refined by dedicated lore developers, 3D model designers, system creators, and plugin coders since 2005 (latest update January 2018). The unique mixture of space exploration, role playing, entrepreneurship, player community, and captivating combat action has gotten thousands of Discovery Freelancer players embarked in years of space adventures.

Discovery Freelancer Ver. 4.90.1

PATCH 1 IS LIVE


The Discovery Freelancer Development Team has been well-fueled by alcohol and nibbles in order to bring us the first patch for the recently released version 4.90. The new approach for updates and schedule managing has already been acknowledged by our members as the content updates and fixes are pushed at a much faster pace, than they had been back in 2017.

February patch brings us quite a few fixes as well as tweaks to existing NPC settings on the main server. There are still quite a few more minor and major tweaks in progress, but due to their reliance on future content, they have been pushed back to later patches.

Discovery Freelancer is still welcoming back its old members by providing them with the Veteran's Care Package that will allow them to skip a lot of the early game grind and jump right back into the fray.

Only 1 question remain.
I launched the DSlauncher and let it donwnoad files after files but it seems it cannot download a file that is 30,76MB.
Keep telling me to start DSlauncher again but it does not solve anything. Still unable to download it.
What now?

i just see it but the 4.89.1 installer that we can download from here is actually installing the 4.88.1 varsion. This installer make no sense. And when i launch the game it displays ver 87.0?
.....
And i cant connect to MP servers.
So i ask this:
What patch should i install to the original game before i install this...and how can i make this mod understand that the version is 89.1 or 4.89.1?

Can this game be played in SP or is it MP integrated into the server? Been playibg since 2003 at 13 and was up until 2013 playing on Rebalance. Rebalance Rc4 went bad since all the new items were replaced with 'IDS?', so im looking for a decent mod to replace it. Hadnt been able to fond a correct fix; Google search came up with nothing. Not to mention i no longer have my original copy; hard to find another when its scarce and people want 50-100$ for it :(
