Freelancer: Combat Evolved™ (FL:CE™)
is a Multiplayer Online Role Playing-Action/Adventure Space Simulation
computer game based on Halo® by Bungie Studios® and produced as a
Total Conversion Modification for the Microsoft® PC Game Freelancer® by Digital Anvil®.
Into the Mystery Third Rock from the Sun Man on the Moon


In FL:CE, the Player must chose sides in a galactic struggle being fought between the races of the Holy Covenant and Mankind. In doing so, the Player becomes a part of a large online community of other Players who have also chosen sides, and taken up arms, to advance their Faction's goals. The online community functions via an online forum which the Factions use to organize and control their pilots and fleets. In the game, each Player serves as a pilot and master of an individual vessel of their Faction. Player vessels range from nimble fighters and cargo transports to mighty cruisers and fearsome flagships. Each pilot and the role of their individual vessel is crucial to the overall success of their Faction's military, economic, and political endeavors.

Piloting through the Universe of FL:CE can be as treacherous as it is beautiful. Freelancer: Combat Evolved features realistic Newtonian-style physics and as such vessels have no speed limit and are able to accelerate as long as their vessel is providing thrust. Inertia will keep the vessel moving at that velocity until they thrust in another heading. Commanders must be constantly aware of their navigation, manipulating their speed and heading so as to achieve the required velocity for reaching a certain destination. Traveling between Solar Systems requires the Player make a Slipspace jump. Navigating through Slipspace can be tricky and requires knowledge of Slipspace eddies and their routes to get to a particular destination. Some parts of normal space can also be hazardous due to the presence of objects such as asteroids or artificial structures. When faced with a combat situation these and other factors combine to present the Player with a serious crisis in which piloting skills are tested to the limit.

The military arm of each Faction consists of warriors who are charged with launching attacks and defending against enemy Factions. Day in and day out they must protect their territorial integrity and shipping lanes while attempting to launch raids against their enemies.

The gain or loss of territory affects many things. For the Faction militaries, it alters the space available to them for use as staging areas. A Faction's economy is affected with regards to available resources for shipping. Politically, the addition or loss of territory impacts the Victory Conditions for the Factions.

Factions rely on shipping raw materials from industrial sites to manufacturing centers to generate Credits. Credits represent a single unit of industrial output and are used to obtain everything from vessels to armaments. As such, a faction's military might relies on the economic backbone of a Faction's industry.

As an official warning to folks trying this mod, this mod is dead.

It cannot run without the server and it is not coming back, so just move on.
