Due to character limits I've made a separate Credits section which details all the people who have contributed in some way as well as the list of great voice actors who have helped out.

The events in this mod occur 10 years after the story of Freelancer.

Not all of the Nomads were pulled through the Hyper Gate by Edison's
work, in fact those events led to another group being awakened and
consequently getting another shot at taking out the colonies. However
this group is larger and more experienced than the previous ones awoken
by Rheinland, and they're not happy about being separated from their brethren.

About 5 Years ago: all the trade lane and jump-gate
technology 'inexplicably' failed, however thanks to some breakthroughs
by Ageria Technologies, Cruise drive speed has been increased to fill
the gap left by the failure of the trade-lanes. They also developed a
system to allow a cruise drive to be 'super charged' in close proximity
to a star, allowing for long distance jumps between systems. While not
as fast as jump-gates it helped to keep the colonies in contact.

4 Years ago: the relative peace shared between the colonies since the
nomad infestation started to breakdown. The Kusari Empire annexed GMG and raised the
export taxes to Bretonian space, raising the cost of vital H-fuel.
Bretonia responded in kind cutting back on the raw resources they were
exporting to assist in Kusari rebuilding. Once Liberty de-regulated
Ageira Technologies' new cruise drive upgrades and shared the designs throughout
the colonies Rheinland was no longer held back, and started flexing
their muscle again. Focusing on moving their newly rebuilt fleet to gain
a foothold in contested space.

3 Years ago: the first Corsair
capital ships were seen. A large Bretonian military convoy carrying
supplies and materials were ambushed by a Corsair fleet led by a cruiser
of unknown design. The cruiser destroyed the escort gunboats with ease
and raided the transport ships. Corsair raids become more frequent and
daring requiring the houses to devote more resources into their military
and police.

2 Years ago: Secretive 'Nomad Cults' have been on the rise,
these Fanatics believe that the Nomads were the messengers of 'God' and
that Edison is the Devil Incarnate who tried to stop mankind hearing their message.
While they were thought to be a few harmless kooks at first,
they have recently become quite aggressive and militant;
and their insanity is quickly spreading.

Current day: relations between factions has
deteriorated even more. With increased military focus due to piracy and
border disputes and the political situation quickly turning sour,
all-out war could break out at any moment.

Here is a demo of the Bretonian faction!

Keep in mind, I haven't done the icons and display pics yet, also the Churchill is using the Victory voice files. Plus I need to increase the Monarch's Particle weapons range =P

hey wintercross, are you planning to involve the fast travel lanes and warpagtes in some way? i guess you just replace the normal wormholes with the freelancer ones.

Because of engine limitations I cannot replicate trade lanes or jumpgates, hence in the back story these technologies have suddenly ceased to work.

However, I will be making 'wormholes' into unstable jump holes that can be traversed once you unlock the tech for it.

Dude freelancer was the first game I ever played. I never thought I'd see something as awesome as a SOASE mod for it. This is GREAT, keep up the good work. Also you're doing this SOLO??? If you could get some people to help you with this, it'd probably be easier... finding people to help; easier said than done, I know. Maybe if you asked around on the forums of the people who made discovery freelancer, or crossfire, they'd help. Just throwing ideas out there. Plus, I'd love to see some of their ships in this ;)

Nah it's ok. I mean I've had a few people chip in here and there but I kind of like working on it myself.
