This re-release of the original contains bug fixes and the patch so it works out of the box. Note: No built in widescreen and needs CD-Rom. Remember to...
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.
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.
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!
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.
