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 shows both cloaking devices and a MkIV (group) jump drive. The convoy is centred around an Aquilion Zoner carrier, which is ready to jump numerous Zoner Whales and a Kishiro Barge from Freeport 11 in Omicron Delta, all the way to Lodeve Space Port in Languedoc, Gallia. Only they didn't account for an unexpected Bounty Hunter Prison Liner stowaway! Jump drives and cloaks consume fuel in order to function - you can see the Aquilion beaming in cargo that a fuel Whale is dropping. Drives frequently need more fuel than the jump ship can carry.
