"It was the 23rd Century: mankind’s darkest hour."


That is what we have thought for centuries but we were wrong. A new threat waiting for aeons has moved out of the dark. We have seen them, we have fought them, we have gained an important victory but we were not aware that they were not the only ones hiding between the stars. Now we have stumbled into a galactic war that had been raging ten thousands of years.
Mankind on the loosing side, in the middle of Crossfire.

The Crossfire Mod is by far the biggest and most complex Freelancer modification available. For many years this mod is known for highest quality and innovative ideas which we have introduced to the Freelancer modding scene.
With Crossfire we have build and extended an universe based on the original Freelancer game and its story. Realism and a logical development of the quest based storyline and the game environment such as the systems and the technological development is most important on this mod. Crossfire is not a static mod like most others, it is a dynamic developing environment with dynamic economy, dynamic universe, destructable solars and download content (DLC) which introduces new quests, new ships, new systems and new equipment.

Most important in this mod is the atmosphere.
High quality graphics, high quality music tracks, more than 150 very detailed systems, new voice samples, stunning effects, many challenging quests, ten thousands of small side stories and rumours, fantastic gameplay and hundreds of cool ships. That is the Crossfire mod.

Blackstar Fleet

Crossfire - BlackStar Fleet



The Mod of the Year Awards is a late wake-up call and a harsh reminder how little I actually managed to update the status of the Crossfire Mod here on Moddb over the past months.
The last info was published one year ago and due to the ongoing pandemic situation free time was sparse. The real life work situation and family just demanded more time which forced me to prioritize with what to spend my little remaining time. I focused on handing out the information on our official forums, our discord server and most importantly actually working on the mod. Moddb fell short on updates about Crossfire.
I apologize for that.

Better late than never, let's talk about Crossfire in 2021, the Blackstar Fleet update and take a look at what to expect in 2022.

blackstarfleet


Last time I announced that I can not set a fixed release date for "Blackstar Fleet" due the real life situation and also changes I wanted to introduce and test, prior pushing out a big update like that.
As a result I released the highly demanded capital ship rebalance early in 2021, which originally was indented to be part of the Blackstar Fleet update. With that also many known bugs were identified and eventually fixed. This early release gave us the opportunity to get player feedback and prepare further improvements going into that direction.

In October another big update was released, dealing with a set of bugs related to newer DirectX versions, improving parts of the render engine and introducing a new customizable shader system. The conflict between automatic launcher updates and custom settings no longer exists, which gives players thousands of new custom visual options.

In the meantime the scope of the original intended Blackstar Fleet update has changed again. I discussed this topic in detail on the official Crossfire Mod forums. If you are interested in participating in the ongoing discussions about the Crossfire development you can find a link to the forum at top of this Moddb profile.
Long story, short: We are no longer talking about a content update with the size of the "Lost Fleet" or the previous bonus missions. Blackstar Fleet has grown to a size similar to step from Crossfire 1.9 to Crossfire 2.0 and that is mildly said huge.
Next to the already announced story content, new systems, new factions, etc. I started to give older content a significant facelift.

Big parts of the Sirius sector will get a visual upgrade, the Altair sector will receive a big content update, the in "Lost Fleet" update introduced systems of the Sol Sector will get new details which will add new variety to the Renaissance faction.
Some of the already existing story missions will also receive an update in order to provide a more reliable experience.
I have collected much feedback from the players and we will take care of everything that is technically possible and which won't break something else in the game. Maybe not every wish can be granted but I will at least try.

Next update?


Since the ambition behind Blackstar Fleet got significantly bigger, more time is needed to get all the work done. We currently make good progress, adding our newly created assets into the game, doing lots of fine tuning etc. but still can not tell exactly when the new Crossfire version will be ready.
Instead of letting you wait without anything new (besides the two already released updates this year) we have the intention to release some of the already done new content early.
And with early I mean in the next few weeks.
In order to avoid story spoilers I will have to carefully pick the content to be release but... hey...

Merry Christmas and a safe flight, Pilots.
Stay healthy. Keep at least a few meters distance to the other ships, cockpits closed... you know the drill.

Got a Graphics issue, playing through SP now, and I cannot see the badlands when approaching to destroy the pirate base. Visually its just not there, when I get inside it, it comes up a bit but kinda annoying not seeing the cloud from a distance. Is there someway to fix this?

Hello guys I have a question, when I am finishing mission 12 and dock in Toledo, it automatically tells me mission finished, it advances me to level 34 and takes my ship, is this part of the game? Then the crossfire campaign begins? Or is it a mistake? Thanks!!!

I'm having the same issue here. When I land on Toledo to complete Mission 12, my ship gets changed to a Starflier and my Level goes from 17 to 45.

For some extra information, my loadout before completing Mission 12 is as follows:

Catalyst (Very Heavy Fighter)
6x Gendaito
2x Sunslayer Torpedo Launchers
1x Mosquito Cruise Disruptors
1x Advanced Countermeasure Dropper
1x Advanced Protector Heavy Fighter Shield
1x Shield Upgrade Mk X
1x Advanced Thruster
1x Power Generator Mk VI
1x Advanced Subspace Scanner
1x Heavy Tractor Beam

if I have a save with the game story finished can I play continuously or do I have to replay the game?

Greetings all,
Thoroughly enjoying the mod except for one gripe - the level requirements. I'm not comfortable with grinding through 5+ missions to progress the story. I simply don't have the time or the patience to free roam for that long.
Is there a config file or a modification I can perform that would reduce the level requirements by about 50%? It's simply too much at the moment.

The easiest way around that is with either Cheat Engine or T-Search. Just find the RAM Address of where your money value is stored, do however many missions you want, then just set your money value to just over the next level requirement and then buy the cheapest thing you can find, then resell it and there you go, next level. No scripts or modding required.
