Discovery mod is a full-scale expansion pack for Freelancer focused on continuing the story started in the vanilla campaign via the roleplay-driven multiplayer server an community forums. The mod and community currently host the most active remaining multiplayer experience for Freelancer and the mod introduces many new features including but not limited to new ship classes and types, ship equipment, player owned (and built) bases, jumpdrives, cloaking devices and equipment manufacturing as well as the ability to create, run and maintain player-led factions that shape, contribute and are a part of the ingame roleplay environment. This multiplayer-focused mod allows players to immerse themselves in the Freelancer world some time after the Nomad War from the singleplayer experience.
This video was recorded on the Discovery Freelancer RP 24/7 server, and demonstrates a large scale battle for Leeds' orbit. This fight was between the GRN, the BAF and Bretonia's allies - including the Council. Taking place outside Planet Leeds, clashing battleships can be clearly seen - the agile Dunkirk pitted against the monstrous Valor. Fleet tactics play a vital role in these engagements, as players coordinate to destroy their enemies. Footage recorded and donated courtesy of Ninefour. A full version can be found here: Youtube.com
