What is NSU
Nightstalker's Universe Mod has been in the works for 9 years, the mod itself has gone though many incarnations including being rewritten several times. The concept of NSU is to give SciFi junkies what they are looking for. There are several sections of the mod dedicated to different SciFi Shows such as, BSG, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Firefly, and Star Wars. There are several sections of the mod that come from different ideas I have come up with and each system is uniquely different with custom suns, starspheres, and a few planets. The Mod has a lot to offer for a wide range of players. At the start you are given 5 choices though the use of one way jump holes (one in ST, SW, B5, Nightstalker Space, Terran Alliance Space). There are also 4 unique Factions in the mod, including Rogue Asteroids, Comets, Derelicts (Moving wrecks), and monsters (They hurt too).

There is an update coming but I do not have a date as of yet for release.

So I have an problem... I've been trying to install this mod on my laptop but for some reason when I install it whether by the Mod Manager 1.3 or directly into the Freelancer folder, it crashes upon start. How it crashes is after I click the icon it acts like its opening, have that black screen and then the screen goes grey for a second and then back to desktop, and in the top left corner a small black rectangle appears for about 2 seconds and then the entire program exits with the "Freelancer has stopped working" error box. Now I know its not the Freelancer install as that opens and works fine, but as soon as I install the mod it breaks.
Another thing I should add is I also have to re-install the Mod Manager everytime I use it because once Freelancer crashes it breaks, and every time I open it, it says "Access to Freelancer.ini denied."

I should also note I am using Windows 8.1, which I am suspecting is a major factor in the problem.

Okay I just recently started playing again and what the heck? Ten NPC battleships waiting for me in the wheel of fate system, the lowest missions being so difficult and you can't even take a single ship down, basically the NPCs are waaaaaay too difficult, seemingly more than they used to be.

You guys need to make a single player version of the mod, or at least a way to host your own server locally... That would be nice, especially since no one seems to play on the server much anymore.

A lot of potential here, on the NSU mod. I would have given it a 10 if there was a open single player option. But NS wants it only as Multi-Player, shame really. But with that aside, this mod has everything for the Sci Fi Geek in all of Graphics on most of the ships are sharp and detailed, only a few along with some stations that need a revamp. Almost no trade lanes, but your cruise engine's are increased to 900 to cope with the large distance's, a 1000 cruise would be better as that would…
