The Genesis mod is an addon mod for Freelancer by Digital Anvil/Microsoft that works in Open Single Player & Multiplayer, putting you into the game just after the original campaign has finished.

The mod adds many new features and is based around events just after the storyline finishes. With many new ships to fly, places to explore, items to trade in a simulated dynamic economy in singleplayer. Many new systems have been added plus other items of interest, plus a full visual enhancement of the game with HD textures and widescreen support.

Multiplayer includes a fully working dynamic economy, based on supply and demand, player banking, custom join messages, a full stats package plus many more features.

The dedicated server is geared towards roleplay, but should you not wish to take part, you are still free to roam the mod without interference. Look for the 'Olympus - Home of the Gods' server running Genesis 1.2 MP

Please choose the correct version for download, OSP version for singlplayer and MP version for mutiplayer. Only the MP version will let you connect to the server.

Incorporates many of the features currently of the multiplayer version.

1. Why does this happen
2. Is it supposed to happen
3. How do I fix it

Not sure if this has been mentioned before but I have had a minor recurring issue in OSP, I believe it may be down to the size of the ships in such a compact formation, but multiple times I've joined a police heavy fighter patrol around West Point, and upon engaging rogues one of the squadron members has fired a rocket, hitting the lead ship of the formation and blowing up the entire formation of ships, myself included on some occasions, it's not game breaking but just a bit annoying when you end up with no backup because they've killed eachother.
Only issue I've found, it's a great mod, keep up the good work :)

Yes, they do that sometimes. Think i made the radius of the torpedo explosion a little wider than maybe it should be

Could be down to the weapons some of the ships are using, not noticed it before tbh, but i'll have a look into it

Hello Gibbon, I have questions about this mod, I downloaded the open SP 1.1 verison (1.2 OSP wasn't installing correctly for me.) and I've been exploring and really enjoying the new ships/graphics, however I was wondering if there are any new systems besides the vanilla freelancer ones, if so could you give a hint on how to find one. Secondly I was wondering if there any places where fleets of npc ships/capital ships/gunboats etc spawn and will engage each other. Watching and partipating in giant battles like that is my favorite thing to do in freelancer. Thanks.

Yes there are quite a few new systems, try and locate Tortuga, you can get to it through the California system. Plenty of capship war encounters going on on the Omicron systems amongst others

I am sorry for stupid question.. But are there any story missions in this MOD? I just installed Freelancer after a loong time but I remember there were story missions.. I have been playing this mod for few hours and still can't find any story missions whatsoever, could anyone help or advice? Thank you

No story missions as indicated in the readme file. You start after the war has finished

My only problem is that this doesn't run through FLServer, so I can't play with my friends. Otherwise it is a really nice update to Freelancer.
