Version 4.81 introduces almost three hundred new systems into the mod, 29 of them clan systems. Many original Freelancer limitations were removed: maximum item price is now 1 billion instead of 10 million, player credit limit increased to 2 billion. Capital ship shields and turrets have several ranks now, making balance issues a thing of the past. 4.81 also features a number of notable new ships and items, everything carefully tested.

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. ;)
