v 0.5b modifications and addons:
- the Defender VHF is now buyable at BS Yukon without crashing
- the class 3 missiles(Sweeper, Paralyzer and so on) are now mountable on cruise disrupter slot and not in the gun/missile ones.
- the freighters have been slightly changed, they are now more maneuvrable, have more energy and new guns,
1 for the Rhino, 1gun/1turret for Clydesdale and 2guns/1 turret for the Dromedary. They are also able to mount cruise disruptors
and have a higher level for shields and guns.
-some LF's that lacked the cruise disruptors due to a CMP modification have these mounted back...sorry for this bug.
-the Pirates guns and turrets do a little more damage than the original ones, so watch yourselfes especially against large
or high level party's, but I think this will make killing them and geting those guns more of a challenge and satisfaction.
-there is more important equipment like better shields and weapon available at some bases, some visited in the plot but
others U may have to search for...:)
-i have added a couple of guns for the TIE's, the Stealthblades mk1_m1 and mk1_m3, check them out in Calif. Minor, Mactan base and Battleship Hood, they have SW sounds as well.
-the Positron shields have been tweaked to give more protection as u will need it in Bretonia....some loadouts problems with Barracuda, Hammerhead and Piranha
are corected.
-the bug in mission 01b when the prison ship sometimes exploded before the player could get there is no more.

version 0.5c changes and bug fixes:
-the Tie Defender it's buyable at BS Hood without crashing the game.
-the infocards are now updated to reflect the actual ship config, armor and cargo bay/batteries/nanobots.
-the maximum speed for that ship is also displayed in the ships infocard(only when F7 is pressed, not at the vendors...)
-the pirate fighter, Bloodhound and the elite version, Wolfhound now have more weapons and armor, but are slower.
-fixed the weapon loadout for Patriot, Stilleto and Cavalier.
-the speeds for al ships have been recalculated and now match the infocard display, like 128-133 for the LF's, 118-126 for the HF's,
108-112 for the VHF's and 96-102 for freighters.

-added suport, infocard, new engine and engine sounds for the Dodonna/Blissex Awing. It's buyable on Calif minor, BS Hood and Freeport 9,
and it's coming in standard package with 2 Raphaels and 2 Slingshot Missile launchers. I recommend mounting a pulse or particle turret to round up the loadout.
-please download the slave1/awing ship pack and copy the directories awing and slave1 form the archive to Freelancer\data\ships directory(this IS required for the mod to work properly)
-maked buyable the missing equipment like the Order VHF engine and powerplant.
-the power and armor upgrades now ocuppy more space in cargo hold, namely 5, 10, 15 and 20 for each superior class. so there is a price to pay other than the cash, for the top performance they offer.
-colision damage doubled to make it more realistic.
-cruise speed set to 500. (recommend u buy the Awing, Banshee or Tie Defender from BS Hood to win the race mission).
-xwing has new engine color making it look more loke in the movies, also elite shield mount and balanced maneuvrability.

-i'm geting closer to what this mod was created to be so the version is 09 instead of 0.7
-battleship, cruiser, gunboat, stations, transports, and weapon platforms weapons have now increased damage(roughly double), range and muzzle velocity,
to balance them to fighters' better speed and weapons loadout. Their missile turrets now fire further and with more damage and explosion radius.
-added support for the "Blockade Runner" Corellian Corvette, with 2/8 guns/turrets, engines and a maneuvrablity closer to a heavy freighter/transport, rather than a fighter. it can mount lvl 10 freighter shields and
its buyable on planet Leeds and planet Crete. please download the ship from LancersReactor and copy the directory Corvette from archive to freelancer\data\ships.
-added buyable gunboats, the Bretonia, Kusari and Rheinland Gunboats are buyable with their own engines, powerplants, and specific weapons.
-they are buyable on: BS York(Leeds system) - Bretonia Gunboat, BS Nagumo(Kyushu system) - Kusari Gunboat and BS Westfallen(Hamburg system) - Rheinland Gunboat.
Also the Kusari and Rheinland versions are buyable on Planet Malta.

-changed trent clothing to something more appropiate, and cool.
-Libery Police is using Starfurys for Law enforcement and Liberty Navy is flying Starvipers
-The Liberty and Bretonia Police are carrying their VIP's and prisoners in Corellian Corvettes now.
-Bretonia Navy gave up flying their ugly Crusaders(too bored i guess) and now is using Cylon fighters, while the Bretonia Police has choosen the Awing as their replacement of the Cavalier.

-bretonia ships reverted to original, both for police and navy
-npc shields now regenerate faster and will drop as loot!
-moved the Kusari gunboat to Planet Kyushu due to difficulty to undocking to BS Nagumo(don't try to land there or on any Kusari BS with a gunboat!)
-the mod comes with 3 levels of dificulty, just run level1.bat for lvl1 difficulty, level2.bat for second level and level3.bat for third level.
-first level(easy): colision damage 2, cruise speed 400, npc shield regen 1/2 from player, npc armor weaker, npc loadout less dangerous, cruise disrupt time:4, more hp to player and atached weaps. be warned that in this level npc shields or any other equip will NOT drop as loot.
-second level(default): colision damage 3, cruise speed 450, npc shield good regen, without armor powerups, cruise disrupt time:5, more shield damage(0.6 instead of 0.5 of hull damage), normal hp to players ship and atached weaps. New npc loot drop will be limited to shield generators.
-third level(hard): colision damage 4, cruise speed 500, npc shield full regen and with armor powerups, cruise disrupt time:6, more shield damage(0.7 instead of 0.5 of hull damage), less hp to players ship and atached weaps. This level is the most rewarding with full npc loot drop like thrusters, mines, missiles, and shield gens.
the npcs are using more varied loadouts they're never used before.
-i recommend u keep default level though, at least for the begining, especially in MP for compatibility reasons, also in storyline missions don't activate the hard level or NPC's will kick your @ss and the ones of your friends. hard level is recomended for hardcore players, the ones seeking a better challenge, and much better rewards as well.
-activated the 2 hidden hardpoints on the Dagger, the underwing ones. weapon loadout for storyline line hackers,Outcasts and blood dragons dagger fighters has been updated(Lord Hakkera and Dexter Hovis as well).
-gunboats can now strafe as any other ships.
-increased gunboat cargo holds by 400 due to the fact that u'll lose 400 cargo units after first save/reload.

-also added the cloaking device both in wassups mountable weapon version and as a loot drop. the wassup's version works only in unmodded/unpatched MP servers.
-some ships like the Defiant and Starfury come equiped with this baby.
-i highly recommend that u download and run FL Data Storm 2.2 from 101st Wolves site( since it can provide u with all necesary info about ships, equipment, trade routes and other info
so download and run that and email me later only if it's something u can't find there. Rememner only
V2.2 workscorectly with the moded game, install it on top of v2.0 in order to get it to start and run properly, install the mod and
THEN run FL Data Storm2.2. Hint: it's gonna reveal the locations of the new systems jumpholes too.
-encounters revamped both in Omicron worlds and Earth Alliance. There still gonna be a lot of ships in the conflicts though, but less than last version.

-phasers and gunboat forward guns are now regarded as lvl 10 turrets, and cannot be used on normal fighters anymore.
-earth alliance jumphole has been moved from California due to crashes before mission 3, so go find it(hint: it's in the only non-plot system in Liberty)
-i recommend you get a powerful ship before proceeding to mission 3 as the Outcasts and the Rheinland Bombers will give u much more of a challenge in those Thunderbolts and Starfury's. Tracking Lavablade plasma turrets are also recomended.

v2.01 full:
-random missions strikes against Capital ships have been greatly enhanced, you'll get missions against multiple Capital ships escorted by Destroyers, Cruisers or Gunboats.
-Babylon 5 Capital ships added to random missions, the Omega Destroyer, Vorlon Planet Killer and Dreadnought, Brakiri Battleship and the WhiteStar Cruiser appear now in strike missions
-ever get pissed at the White Star for its handling or docking problems? Now its your chance for some payback!
-downside: sometimes the computer lies about the ships in the RM strikes, for ex. if it states there are some Ku
-Pirates got their eyes on these new capital ships, and some got their hands as well...the Outcasts fly WhiteStars, the Corsairs Omega Destroyers and the Red Hessians Vorlon PlanetKillers.sari Destroyers there might be some Bretonia desroyers, or if it refers to some Rheinland GB's there might be some Kusari or Bretonia GB's. You'll generally get ships of the same class in this situations.
-the above capital ships are buyable in the EFA systems at 2 of the planets there. They all cost above 2 mil. though.
-the Starkiller torp has been enhaced(2xdamage) in order to allow you to take out the capital ships easier. I recommend taking a heavy or very heavy fighter with at least dual torpedo mounts though for the new RM strike missions. the ammo for the Starkiller costs double as well.
-added wassup's LongSword Strike bomber buyable at Planet New london and Tripolli Shipyard(Omicron Gamma). Its loaded with 4 LAAG Tachyon guns(600 damage, 3.03/sec ROF) and 4 of the newer Hellfurry Torpedo Launchers plus very heavy armor.
it has 400 cargo space to accomodate the 100 Hellfury torpedoes(each is taking 1.5 cargo space slots.).
-Hellfury torps do double the damage of a Starkiller and cost 30k each. Be warned that they have also 600 m explosion radius on lvl 2 of difficulty(and 800 on lvl 3), so fire them from 1 kilometer and RUN. You can find them all troughout Bretonia, Kusari, Rheinland and the edge worlds.

-the mod comes with the skip intro mod integrated, no more FP7 blowup sequence, or the rest of the intro scene.
-also the mod comes with the option to play in OpenSP mode or normal mode, just run the openSplay.bat for OpenSP mode and normalplay.bat for normal play. You'll have to restart FL for switching between the 2 modes.

-added 3 ships on Tsushima Station(shipdealer works this time): Archangel, Battleaxe and Dragon, also the Battleaxe is now available on Shinagawa Station, along with the Drone and the Drake.

-The BD "Dragon's Breath" Laser cannon now has much improved visual quality making it look more like a pirate super-laser gun.
-added Silver Fire's weapon Pack 1.1 including the new mass drivers and rocket pods. Modified cluster missiles to have less tracking abilities, but to be able to fit into weapon, turret and torpedo slots. making them some of the most versatile weapons ever available.
-shield capacitors offer increased protection against pulse, missile an capital ship type weapons, also slightly increased vs Tachyons and Neutron class. They're almost impervious to mass driver weapons.
-all battleship and cruiser/destroyer turrets have reduced effects vs shields. This increases the realism since these turrets were made for capital vs capital battles. Only BS and CA flak and missile turrets do full shield damage.

-the cruise speed comes at a price now: not only it will render weapons unusable but it will drain the main reactor's power at high rates. you may have to pause the cruise to allow the power to recharge.
-engines also drain power in normal mode from the fusion reactor, even if at lower rates. if you go at top speed you'll notice a slight decrease in power regen, so reduce your speed to achieve better regeneration rates.
-all engines have infocards showing the theoretical max speeds, the energy draw and the cruise energy draw.
-mounting fusion reactors upgrades will increase cruise time and weapon regen rate at max speed.
-added commodity vendors to plot spawned bases such as Baxter Research Station and Glorious Station.
-ship vendors are working corectly now on Holman Outpost.
-beware of the powerfull explosions of battleship in Random Missions, these really hurt now! Nomad Battleships hurt the most.

-ships have been moved arround again so expect surprises. Run the Data Storm on the modded FL folder to avoid these if you prefer to know exactly where the ships are.

-added the Leviathan Warship Class "Balistner" from the Fightspace mod available in the EFA system. It's the ultimate Capship in terms of firepower and protection.
-the mod is compatible with the 1.1 patch except some TIE ships and the SkyHawk. players buying the Skyhawk or the TIE ships(the TIE Bomber and Tie Advanced) will be kicked as cheaters. The other 3 TIE ships(Fighter, Defender and Interceptor) are working normally.

-the Starblazer, the missing FL civilian fighter, becomes now the starter ship. And with 4 guns plus one missile launcher you'll have enough firepower at least for the first missions. I do recommend that you change it before mission 3 though(or 4 if you think you're that good :P).
-totally changed and re-designed the cluster missiles as folows:
-now using both ammo and energy
-the normal type is doing half the damage of the original missile.
-the only difference between the normal and homing versions is the better tracking abilities and muzzle velocity of the homing missiles.
-ammo costs one third of the original missiles
-mines are also totally revamped in terms of speed and damage power. Normal mine now have 100 m/s max speed, while the homing versions has 120 m/s. The explosion damage goes from 1500 for the Drone to 6000 to the Screamer.
-this has been done on so the mines can keep up with the speeds of the ships, which is arround 100-110 m/s.
-the Damocles BattleCruiser is now flyable and sold on EFA. Thanx to lukr from our LR forums for the tips to fix it.
-EFA police also uses this ship along with the other three(Naginata, Tempest and Javelin). They're not longer using Liberty capships anymore.
-prices for these capships are significantly increased, from 9000k for the Naginata to 54000k for the Damocles.

-changed the graphics for different types of pirate/house guns, not all pirate guns are using the LI laser graphics anymore. Tachyon guns have their own graphics, Neutrons as well and so on. Guns have a personality now.
-the Blood Dragons special weapon use different graphics now than in previous version. the Kusari photon cannons and the Hyperpulse also have new graphics.
-the Molly's Dublin Dusters fire faster in order to match their house specifications. The Rheinland Stealthblades do more damage as well.

-restored NPC and player shield regeneration to defaults(lower) settings.
-re-distributed missing ship packages all over Sirius so all of the ships added can be bought somewhere.

- 9 starting locations and 9 different ships for the OpenSP game mode are now available from the mod's FLMM main menu: Liberty(Starflier), Bretonia(Cavalier), Kusari(Drake), Civilian(Freeport 4, Starblazer), Pirate(Mactan, Starfury), Junker(Rochester, Ferret), IW Merchant(Troy, Bettle), Bounty Hunter(Sheffield, Piranha), EFA Bandit(Xantia Base, Soulstealer).
- Added 13 models made by Jason Barker aka jsncalif11, the Stingray, Mantaray, Navy Interceptor, Mantis, Scorpion, Condor(Falcon), the Bird of Prey and Merchant set(3 ships each) and the Vista Trader, which are sold and flown by diverse houses and factions throughout Sirius. I'll let you discover where and by who...
- All custom ships have now proper .sur files, meaning that they can be hit with lasers all over their surface' shape.
- Engines are sellable now, thanks to Alcander's Freelimits mod coding.
- Different cruise speeds for each engine are also available, through an option in the start menu, but be warned that this is not recomended in MP since it's affects the Flserver's stability(it freezes on exit). U'll also get an error when you quit FL' main program. This happens because of the altered common.dll file included in Freelimits.
- "Second hand" freighters are available in some systems. They're cheaper but have downgraded cargo hauls, speeds and weapons levels/numbers
- True OpenSP added from Argh's XML Mod, available in the start menu.
- The mod options are fully scripted now, except the cutscenes option that was not scriptable due to too many files that had to be replaced. You'll still need to run cutscenes.bat for this one.
- Make sure you'll only select the Normal Character along with the SP Campaign option in the Start menu, and the other 5 characters and start locations ONLY with the Open SP mode. Otherwise the start of a new game will not function corectly!!! Also if you attempt to play in SP Campaign with OpenSP mode activated it will NOT WORK!!! You have been warned. So make sure you choose the right SP play mode at the begining of mod activation in the options menu and stick to that mode.
- For the Hovis race use the Starflier, Startracker or Upgrade MkI Engine, but make sure you have the different cruise speeds option activated. These engines have below default cruise speeds and can help make the race much easier to win. You can find all these 3 engines on Hood.
