Starlancer Reborn originally was a personal dream of reviving my favorite game with the help of a new engine. This mod is based on the Freelancer prequel called Starlancer.

Other than the already existing mods Starlancer Reborn is designed to introduce a new concept of gameplay. The mod is playable in multiplayer only and the player has to join one of two factions, the western alliance or the eastern coalition. Once choosen the player has to fight for this faction in a sector based grid of the sol system. The ultimate task is to gain the domination over the entire system.

Teamplay, roleplay, tactics and massive fights... thats what makes this mod extremly interesting for players that love to fight.

This mod belongs to the long term modding projects as its exclusivly developed by me alone (OP-R8R). Since other projects of the SWAT development group are also based on Starlancer every development there also pushes the Starlancer: Reborn mod. Meanwhile I can say that most ships, stations and graphical work is finished while only the creation of system sectors is waiting to get finshed. So we are not that close from a release. Maybe even in 2009.

Fellow passionate gamers,

The 2009 Mod of the Year Awards event is up and running. For the past few years
Crossfire has reached the Top 100.
We would like to thank you all for your kind support! Without your votes this
would not have been possible.

This year again we need your votes; not only for Crossfire but all the other
brilliant mods that made this game immortal. The communities and modders have
kept this great game alive for the last seven years - and the game will
hopefully live on for many more years. Your support is decisive to us
Freelancers. Despite the fact that many players have left over the years, the
many Mods
Freelancer has to offer attracted a lot of new people, and many veterans came

However, a game cannot survive without any support. We encourage you to have a
look at all the Freelancer Mods on We need you to vote!

A new year approaches and with it a little surprise. Crossfire 1.8 will be
released in the first week of 2010 and will push the game to the next level.

Did I die and go to heaven?

This is something I've wanted for so long! I was always mad that the Eastern Coalition took over Sol. Now I can get revenge and rewrite history. Once this comes out, I am downloading it, joining the Western Alliance, and kicking some Coalition butt!

I'm guessing this is what delayed the Crossfire Mod release date by a whole year?
