IMPORTANT: There is a bug I'm attempting to fix (that only seems to affect mission 1) where the game will crash 10-20 seconds after entering a new game unless you undock. When you undock, you need to use ESC to close the mission briefing window immediately. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
I know right? You're probably feeling a mix of emotions. Not only is this the first ever complete custom campaign mod for Freelancer, but it was released with no warning what so ever. It's all very exciting.
Excellent. Anyway, lets go over this mod's features!
- 12 custom missions, complete with voice acting.
- Arcadey, fast paced, gameplay.
- More difficult than the vanilla campaign. I used a difficulty scale of 0.4 when developing it, and 0.4 was average difficulty. So, 1.0 should be a challenge!
- Custom universe. All the systems were designed by me as well as the backstory.
Sorry it doesn't have tons of custom models, effects, and skyboxes. I don't have the skill for that kind of thing (I'm a programmer and content designer, not an artist). You can find lots of custom models in other mods, but no other complete campaigns (you can download a couple missions from an incomplete campaign called "The Corsair Campaign" if you google it).
I made this mod because I though the Freelancer multiplayer mods, although fun, were sort of cheating. Tons of amazing things have been developed for multiplayer, but single player campaigns are largely untouched. This is because the campaign files are rather nasty.
I also made this mod because I wanted to play out some of my epic space battle fantasies ^^. Nothing like being a fighter dodging your way through an army of capital ships (that you're supposed to kill) with hostile fighters nipping at your arse!
So, enjoy this mod, any be inspired to make your own campaign! Contact me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org with bug reports, comments, or questions. Fly safe.
