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.
A lot of potential here, on the NSU mod.
I would have given it a 10 if there was a open single player
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 us..lol
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 be like warp speed.
There are loads of systems to explore, all have great music for you
to enjoy while traverling through the Galaxy.
If you want the best Sci Fi realated space sim mod based on Freelancer, then look no further, NightStalkers Universe is for YOU!!
What we need to do now is get this mod out there among the big wigs.
And if at all possible in the top 10 at least.
So Get voting ppl and Spread the word.
