Freelancer Mod Manager (FLMM) v1.4 beta is required to activate this modification. This file is NOT compatible with FLMM v1.3. This is 7zip archive, NOT zip.

Before you start

1) Please read the Readme.txt file, at least the first parts of it. Then you will know answers to most questions that beginning players ask.
2) Do not enable Open SP when you are playing online.
3) Before you enable Open SP, make sure that you have a backup of Freelancer\DLLS\BIN\content.dll file. Freelancer Mod Manager (FLMM) will delete this file during mod deactivation, and you'll need to restore it manually. If Open SP is not enabled, content.dll will not be deleted.
4) If Discovery won't activate properly in FLMM, your Freelancer installation is most probably corrupt. Reinstall Freelancer and FLMM, if necessary.
5) Installing 1.1 patch or Freelancer SDK (of any version) before Discovery is not recommended. Patch is included into the mod, and SDK may cause game errors. Same is true about unofficial patches.
6) Do not forget to transfer scanners, ID items, and armor upgrades each time when you buy a new ship. These items are displayed in 'Internal Equipment' section of ship inventory.
7) ID items present in Discovery are not used only for roleplaying. They also act as tractor beams. Civilian IDs are available for purchase from every base (500 credits).

Overview

Discovery is a modification that expands Freelancer universe without spoiling it with unneeded or illogical changes. This mod retains atmosphere and balance of the original game, both multiplayer and singleplayer, and adds new interesting features, allowing players to develop and explore far beyond the limits of unmodded Freelancer. Those features include 97 new pilotable ships, 59 new systems, lots of new weapons, commodities and equipment, battleship encounters, improved artificial intelligence of NPCs and many others - everything seamlessly integrated into Freelancer universe.

With improved balance, stability, and server performance, Discovery 4.82 is a significant step forward in comparison with 4.81. Numerous new setup options allow players and server administrators to customize gameplay according to their preferences. We've even incorporated Open SP into the mod so that you don't need to download any additional patches to enable it! See complete feature list and changelog below in this readme.

Discovery features a storyline about a war between Bretonia and Kusari that started shortly after the Nomad war - see news on different bases for more details. Story will evolve and continue with next Discovery versions.

If you prefer online play, you are welcome to official Discovery Freelancer 24/7 server, and a number of other servers running Discovery mod. Server operators are allowed to run this mod without any restrictions, IONCROSS data files are included.

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. ;)
