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.

Hello to everyone,
First; I apologise for the lack of updates and progress on the mod, recently I just haven't had much time to devote to working on it.

However today I have started working on the mod once again, though I am contemplating some changes and alterations to my original direction. I won't go into it too much right now, because I need to trial the planned changes myself first to see how I like it.

At any rate, just wanted to let everyone know that the mod has not bought the farm and I am still fully committed to finishing it off (eventually =P )

Thanks for being so patient and supporting the mod, I hope to have more news to update everyone soon!

At the moment I'm just very time poor lol, it takes a lot of work to do stuff and I just have to plod along at my own pace.

I could always use a modeler, to either help convert stuff in xsi tool or even make some new stuff. that's about it really.

Yeah sorry, slow progress. Mostly due to being short on time, I'm also part of the 7DS team and we're working on getting it up to date... plus wife is pregnant with our second child so free time is at a premium at the moment =P

I am working on the mod though, so don't worry. More updates soon hopefully.

Oh man this mod looks amazing so far. I once imagined what it would be to play Homeworld 2 with Freelancer ships...Now this is not HW2, and I never played Sins of a Solar Empire before, but I will most definitely now.

Keep up the gread job man!
