20 years have passed since the invasion. While The Order chase the remaining Nomads from the Sirius Sector, the four houses take advantage of these peaceful times to rebuild their governments. Beyond the Edge worlds new factions emerge, some claim they're descended from the crews of the lost Sleeper ships. Others are from different quadrants altogether. With them come stories of vast new systems, seemingly endless resources, and reports of a new, yet not so unfamiliar empire. Could it be?......
Version 2.0 is a complete rebuild of the North Quadrant server mod and is not compatible with any earlier versions. Unlike previous releases, single player is fully functioning. The goals going into the rebuild were:
Keep NQ pvp combat basically the same.
100% stable and error free mod as a final version or as a base for any future releases.
Omit unused content.
Create a storyline expanding the Sirius sector while retaining original game integrity.
When I started on 2.0 the plan was to leave all the non-freelancer sci-fi content out. A lot of complaints we saw from the hard core vanilla players were they didn't like flying through Liberty and seeing an X-wing or Interdictor and the mod could not be played in single player mode. So the original idea was to make 2.0 like a vanilla expansion pack, instead of just a bunch of sci-fi content all thrown together. Then the more I thought about it, the more I came to realize the Star Wars/Trek ships would be missed. So we went in a different direction.
The main "Universe" is Freelancer related only. When players join the server they will start in one of the 4 primary house systems as a freelancer. Restarts enable pilots to change to Navy, Bounty Hunter, Outcast, Hessian or Order affiliation. Everything follows an expanded FL storyline. There are custom systems containing new factions with their own ships, weapons, etc. However, there are additional restarts that can take the player to 3 totally different role play alternate universes, all separate from each other and the Freelancer universe. 2.0 is like four mods in one.
Alternate RP universes.....
Star Wars: 6 systems, 2 restarts, Rebel Alliance and The Empire
Star Trek: 5 systems, 4 restarts, United Federation of Planets - Klingon - Borg - Romulan
Battlestar Galactica: 5 systems, 2 restarts, Human and Cylon
