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.

Crossfire 2.0 - 2016 in review


Hello Freelancers,

for a pretty long time I have not announced any news about Crossfire, but hat does not mean that there have not been updates and important changes in the past year.
I personally focused more on community work at www.swat-portal.com and also on updates for Crossfire and other projects.

Early in 2016 there was a big Crossfire update with lots of bug fixes, new ships and also a new singleplayer story mission. In the months after that multiple small updates were released, mainly updating ships and loadouts.
In summer 2016 another big update was released, which focuses on new animations for the game. This big update was followed by multiple small patches which addressed a few minor gameplay issues.






What to expect in 2017?

Just about a week ago I announced another update that I want to release end of December 2016 or beginning Janurary 2017 (depending on how fast I can finish the development and how much extra content I decide to put in).

This new update will introduce the "Dynamic Universe" feature to Crossfire 2.0.
Some people might remember that we had a similar feature in Crossfire 1.83, long time ago.
Due to the complexity of such a feature and due to other priorities, the "Dyniamic Universe" didn't make it into Crossfire 1.9 but it is time to add it to Crossfire 2.0 now.

What is the Dynamic Universe?

Basically we will introduce environmental events to the Crossfire universe which shape the systems in a new way and have influence on how the game can be played.
Events might be space weather (radiation after solar eruptions, increasing amount of comets, ion storms, etc.), temporary Jumpgate malfunctions, instable jump holes, large scale alien invasions, etc.

These events will be available to the players on our official server in first place.
A version of the Dynamic Universe for the OpenSP (open singleplayer) mode might follow later.
The normal singleplayer with the storyline will be unaffected by these events in order to prevent conflicts with the story missions.
As part of this update I will also introduce an improved daily update mechanism, which will close the gap between market updates and server restarts.
This should resolve a few problems for the people which play around the time of the daily maintenance.

What else can be expected?

End of February or in March 2017 another Crossfire 2.0 update will follow.
That update will focus mostly on roleplay adjustments and better support of online clans.
There will be a community meeting to discuss the details.


Story Development

The last story mission (one of the Bonus missions) has been introduced a good while ago.
It is time for new missions to be released in 2017.
I want you to help me with that.

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?

I have been having problems with my new computer (with Windows Vista) and the Freelancer Mods. Specifically the computer will not allow me to extract the .dll files. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this (besides a different version of the mod manager and a fresh install of the game)?
