Discovery mod is a full-scale expansion pack for Freelancer focused on continuing the story started in the vanilla campaign via the roleplay-driven multiplayer server an community forums. The mod and community currently host the most active remaining multiplayer experience for Freelancer and the mod introduces many new features including but not limited to new ship classes and types, ship equipment, player owned (and built) bases, jumpdrives, cloaking devices and equipment manufacturing as well as the ability to create, run and maintain player-led factions that shape, contribute and are a part of the ingame roleplay environment. This multiplayer-focused mod allows players to immerse themselves in the Freelancer world some time after the Nomad War from the singleplayer experience.
The Scorpion is an automated semi-organic drone developed by the Nomads and their thralls. A single Scorpion is a match for any human gunboat, but in groups they become much more deadly. Being specifically designed from the ground up to interface with both human and Nomad technology, the Scorpion can make use of any weapon small enough to fit on it, as well as being easy to maintain. Scorpions also contain trace amounts of human tissue deep within them, though scientists have been unable to discern the purpose of this tissue from what remains after a Scorpion has been destroyed.
Now with a new model by Kuze, featuring an animated ring.
