Description

The year is 818 A.S. and war is everywhere. 17 years after Trent saved humanity and one year since Episode 13 took place, a Sirius-wide war is being waged. Liberty has dealt a deadly blow to Rheinland, seizing invaluable research while continuing to dominate their ever enlarging battlefield. Omega space shakes under the growing power of the Corsairs and Hessians, as both forces take advantage of Rheinland's weakening position. Calls for an all out war with the once grand House are becoming more frequent and not only in the halls of the Corsairs. The Omicrons are facing a rapid power change as both the Bounty Hunters and Order forces suffer what could only be described as a catastrophe. However, even these brutal wars pale in comparison to the raw power that Bretonia is finding itself faced with. It is not a Kusarian foe that threatens to destroy Queen Carina's home, it is a French foe.

Yeah, well, it did take us almost a year to remember that we had a moddb account and post the latest update. The next release Discovery 4.87: Conquest is due soon.

Snak3 is right - an autoupdater is also included with the mod which means bugfixes and updates will be downloaded automatically when they are published.

Question, I start a new game (sp), I start at level 38? and $500 with an administrator shield mk 3. I am unable to destroy enemy ships as I do no damage, and they likewise are unable to destroy me.
Am I doing something wrong with the mod install? Is there a toggle I need to select, Or is this mod multilayer only? I thought I read it had single player as well. Thanks for any help.

@Guest: OpenSP is supported, which is a free roaming mode. We had to drop campaign support several versions ago due to technical conflicts. I believe you can pick your starting funds and spawn location during the installation process. So you could pick a billion credits in New Tokyo, for example! There is also another useful tool you could download, which is the IONcross save game editor which will allow you to customise every aspect of your ship. I believe the Admin shield was included for people who wanted to easily explore the mod with risking much - if you're looking for the original grassroots challenge, Is suggest selling the shield and either buying a freighter or trying low level missions.

I also didn't get that option during instalation. I also tried the IONcross save game editor and it also didn't work for me. I was told it was because it doesn work on win7 64-bits sytems.
But I found this other save game editor on The Starport that works. I can't post links since I'm a new member, but just google "The Starport" and search for "save game editing" there.

Hope it helps you out.

Keep trying, eventually it will be available for you. You need to install 4.86 on a clean/fresh installation of Freelancer, don't mix 4.86 with 4.85 or any other mod. Also, don't forget to delete your old saved games (back them up first if you will), or the game will crash if it finds AutoSave.fl from other versions/mods.
I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post here, but you can find an alternative link on discoverygc.com/forums

No, it doesn't have, but there is a mod called "HD Textures 1.21". Google for it and see the screenshots on the mod's site. I don't see much improvement, just some sharpness on the textures.

After having a blast in SP with version 4.85, I downloaded this one. Unfortunately there is a problem with the file common.dll. The opening screen appears and then back to the desktop. Any suggestions? Thanks.

As it turns out, the only way to 4.86 in SP mode is by using saves from earlier versions, for example 4.85.

This modification is not bad but the community is horrible. Censorship with really stupid and boring rules everywhere, admins are arrogant and when you want something from them, better commited suicide-they will ban you.

Before 3 years, there was usually 200 players at a time on the server, now it wont happend there are more than 100 players. Please continue with it, after some time, only admins will play their mod. ;)
