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 March 2017). 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.
4.88 continues on with the Gallic expansion into Sirius; the invasion of Magellan has begun at an attempt to cut off the supply lines to Bretonia from Liberty. Gallia hopes this gamble will pay off even though it stretches their forces and opens up another front. Along with this, the mod looks towards the Omicrons and the war of influence over the Wild West of Sirius. With the presence of Nomads this formula could get messy. Kusari has begun its descent into civil-war with all three sides stocking up on weapons and men. When will the balloon pop?
However there are more changes to this version of the mod than just juicy battle zones. System layout has been worked on as well. Some systems around Sirius have been removed to try and increase encounters between players. Gallia has been shrunk along and guard systems such as Salisbury have been removed. The stations in these systems, if important, have been moved to other locations. The Devs have also altered routes between systems, mainly in the Omicrons which now has a more direct path through from Gamma to Alpha.
Discovery boasts an interactive community that works together and is supported by itself. Features are designed for the player to make playing Freelancer a smoother experience. Custom plugins and content are added each update.

With version 4.89 Final coming soon for our active members to enjoy, we are taking a step back to evaluate our current approach when it comes to new and returning players.
There are many vital changes for both of these two groups and it all starts off with the recent changes described below.
The list of full changes to the mod can be found here: Discoverygc.com
Changelog July 2017
- a New Character now, instead of a completely blank Nav map, starts off with some known sellpoints for Helium and Neon, the first two trading commodities encountered by a new player.
- the outdated History of Sirius commodity has been replaced with a Getting Started tutorial item, allowing the player a rudimentary ingame guide.
- navigation buoys have been added to the Pennsylvania system to aid new players in locating the Helium Mining Field.
- the battleship Gettysburg in the Pennsylvania system now offers a noticeably bigger buy price for criminal Pilots, allowing low-tier missions to be a viable source of initial credits.
- an upcoming commodity-based step-by-step tutorial is being designed and will be implemented soon.
These changes aside, we haven't forgotten about our veteran players. We are well-aware that Discovery Freelancer, being a roleplay-focused community, rewards players with access to large ingame assets when it comes to comfort of play. A returning veteran player with their old server assets long gone may find themselves unable to muster enough free online time to get themselves situated again, especially if they are simply curious to see what changes have happened over the last few years.
With this in mind, the staff at DiscoveryGC have set up a special policy for returning members, providing initial server assets in the form of a fully decked out medium transport, a mining ship, a Freelancer IDed fighter as well as a generous amount of starting money for them to use.
We hope that this starting package will allow our veteran players to test the waters without needing to resort to loans from other players.
The application process for this package is discrete and further explained on the appropriate thread on our forums found here: Discoverygc.com
