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.

Good day, everyone

We are glad to inform you that the Discovery Freelancer mod is still actively being developed and contributed to and the ModDB page is under new management by a dedicated group of community contributors. It has been almost two years since the last update here, so we are inclined to kick out this tiny memo as to the current situation within the community.

Some of the most notable changes to the mod in 2017 have so far been:

  • Updates and tweaks to existing server rules.
  • Tweaks to ingame character roleplay IDs.
  • Balance revisions for the Transport, Cruiser and Gunboat ship classes.
  • Rework of the top tier weaponry for Fighter ship classes.
  • Active work on the Event Plugin allowing for admin-controlled ingame events.
  • Continued refining of unused/old systems and their re-incorporation within the active game environment.

A much more detailed list on the progress of the mod development will be made over time. We are glad to be back on ModDB and are hoping to keep you up to date on our efforts to preserve and improve on the last surviving active Freelancer online experience.
