About This Mod
This mod is a space fighter simulation on the Freelancer engine. It is heavily inspired by Colony Wars and the large fleet battles in many SciFi movies. Dive into every variety of combat from escort missions to all-out fleet battles.

The Federation Calls You for a Tour of Duty

You are a pilot signing on to the navy of the Orin Federation, the only real superpower in the post-war world. 14 years ago there was a massive territorial war between the Federation and the United Systems, also called the Union.

You will fly the Crow, the premier fighter of the Federation. It has excellent multi-role capabilities and was battle hardened over years of skirmishes.

The foundation war traces its roots to the second foundation war 400 years ago, where both nations formed. That in turn traces its roots to the first foundation war 1500 years ago when we first began off-world colonies. Why would anyone assume that war was a thing of the past? Relax, take a load off. We live in a safe world now.

Features

  • Colony Wars inspired missions, if you have ever played colony wars you'll see the influence.
  • 12 Fast Paced and Exciting Missions
  • Realistic planet sizes from planetoids to terrestrial worlds.
  • Direct story mod. No need for freelancing, just sell the H-Fuel to the base to advance.
  • Epic fleet fights with dozens of battleships.
  • The HD Textures mod for Freelancer is integrated providing an unmatched texture experience ( Moddb.com )

IMPORTANT: There's no freelancing! To advance to the next mission, sell the H-Fuel to the station. If you for some reason come up short on cash, sell a gun. You'll get it back. For mission 1, just undock. No need to sell for mission 1.

If you have any issues what so ever, you can email me at masternerdguy@yahoo.com


Warning
This mod has fleet fights somewhat larger than the battles most Freelancer players are used to. This is not for a wimpy PC. I run it fine with a 2.3ghz duel core CPU and 4gb of RAM.

Better Late Than Never
You may remember being excited to play Wings of the Federation, the first ever complete custom campaign for Freelancer, back in 2010. You may also remember being frustrated at some very idiotic bugs at the start of the game. Well, no longer! Those bugs are crushed.


Wings of the Federation is back for more, and ready for you to play whether you beat it back in 2010 or are experiencing it for the very first time!

Fixes

  • Fixed the crash at the start of the game that occurred if you didn't press ESC immediately after undocking from Battleship Poseidon.
  • Fixed the crash at the start of the game that occurred if you didn't immediately undock from Battleship Poseidon.
  • Merged the original release with the mandatory patch so you don't have to worry about installing the mod, then installing the patch. The mandatory patch fixed lots of issues including a game breaking one where the first system was a mutilated version of the New York system, and the campaign could not continue.
  • No longer requires installing the Microsoft Freelancer 1.1 patch to play!

What brought this on? Well, I had recently gotten an email from someone who was having issues getting the mod to work on their system. I realized that I needed to go back and make the mod easier to install, because there are still people who haven't played it.

Fly safe!

I finished this incredible mod, and if it's okay i will say what i liked and what i didn't

Goods:
- Battles are massive, which makes player more exciting, not like in vanilla.
- Unique story, system names and the mod is very original in general
- It has a new storyline, they are not easy to make, requires lot of effort, but you managed to make the incredible one.

Bads:
- Sometimes fights (especially the last mission) are too though as they have many ships that most likely target you.
- Ally ships are static, they shoot at the enemy if he is close to their position, but if he flies away a bit, they will not chase him, they will stand

That's about it, i finished your campaign and i really enjoyed it.
P.S. Those planets are huge :D

According to Adoxa

The crash can be fixed by changing Cnd_True to Cnd_SpaceEnter for space_enter_rtc (line 290 in DATA\MISSIONS\M01A\m01a.ini).

Do this after applying the mandatory patch.
