THE STORY
Based on the Chronicles of Riddick trilogy, we take you slightly into the future from the end of the third movie. It is now 30 years since Riddick sat on the throne and became the Necromonger leader. One of the first things he did was to stop the advance of the fleet into more territories and had them fall back to home space. Then he freed all who remained from the truely demolished worlds, Furyans being the first. Once news of this surfaced, other non-purified survivors began returning to their home systems to start the slow process of re-population. Riddick himself disappeared 15 years ago, his whereabouts and fate unknown.
Now the houses are stirring again.
Now the war drums are sounding again.
Where will you be when it all starts again?!

Some of the special things in the UnderVerse:

NEW VOICES - A FIRST IN FL MODDING
Using a mix of Computer Generated voices and Human Actors
we have been working on replacing all of the ingame Voices with ones created by us using TTS software and Human voices .. with the release of 2.25 we have replaced all of the original voices Except for Trent...Trent doesnt say anything server specific like commodities Factions base names things like that so were keeping him ... even though we did rename him to Johns :) This has never been done in a freelancer Mod before .. why ? because its a Huge ordeal .. it has taken over 5000 files and many more corrections to get the ingame Synch to be watchable ... Dwn and i have been working on these since the start so its taken a few years to get to this point .. but it gives us the bragging rights of being the first freelancer mod to ever get it done ... all chars in our Mod now speak our Ship names ,, commodities,, faction names and so on .. there are no more vanilla refrences left spoken in the mod.The only Original Voices Left ingame is Trent and we call him Johns a char from the Riddick movies.

2.29 release notes

Entrance buoys have been added for the cave entrances in Illumnion (clickable and on 'solars').

The LODs have been extended in the cave tunnel sections so they all show in zoom view.

The docking range of the Illumnion base has been extended to 5km.

The 'Energy Blaster Cannon Turret' has been shortened to 'Energy Blaster Turret'.

The word Launcher has been added to the Moray Missile (Launcher).

The Server IP has been updated in the UnderVerse.txt

Loot drops have been added to the NPC Battleship groups. Wiping out a whole group will net you $15-$20mil if you don't blow it all up.

At Phoenix's request, the 'Viper MK7' has been renamed to 'Galactica MKVII' and all players who owned one have been updated to it.

The Galactica MKVII (Viper MK7) has a new sur so hits register correctly.

The names of the four Start Rocks in Feudal Wars have been updated to new names for the years' four winners: Ironmoon's BlueMoon, Goultek's Phrog Dispenser, Mick's Hole and Baron's Perch.

A large 15km sphere now surrounds the Mosh Pit Center Stage. This is the ThunderDome concept.

New loadscreens by Soupman.The jumpgate in Paradox (To Rock-n-Roll) will now show on the NAVMAP by default.

Added dealer names for the new [NEC] team.

Adjusted the BioSYN base for easier undocking.Hopefully have solved the last of the cross-texturing of the ships.

Three Bio domes are now scattered around the 'verse to play in. The one with grass and trees is in each Chat system. Empty ones are in Feudal Wars and the Mosh Pit. The mausoleum is in Dark Shadows.

A planet fragment has been salvaged from a Necromonger attack and has been towed to the Ukraine System as a reminder that evil still exists.

Thanks to brianmccumber aka Max for his work on the Conquest Icon face.

Attention to owners of Viper MK7's, to prevent you from being kicked for 'cheating' when logging that ship in for the first time, simply go to your accts\singleplayer folder and delete the contents. But if you forget, no worries. After the initial kick you will be able to log in as normal.

Hello, I am new to the Underverse and wanted to check this conversion mod out but i'm having issues trying to get it to play in widescreen 1920x1080. I just wanted to know if there was a easyier way to get it to play in that resolution or do I need to use Hudshift and Jflp. I did try to use those dll's and I couldn't get it to work correctly. Please let me know what I need to do to experience this amazing mod. Thanks

We have many help threads on the forum for widescreen, you can read them once you are registered. Far too complicated for this little space. :)

In the five years since our first release we have been in the Top 10 servers worldwide. Continuously. We will never release the server files for two reasons.
1) With the low numbers in the Freelancer Community it would fracture our database
2) We have enormous content inside the mod created by dozens of different people. It can't be given away without their individual permissions. We have also had members pay a lot of money for ships and station models. Again, the agreement upon such a purchase is that it never be given away, the license is for the purchaser only.

So come and play on our multiplayer server if you want to play the UnderVerse. You will never see the server files released, period.
