FSFC gameplay is intended for a fast paced, competitive multiplayer format. Players take the side of Terran, Vasudan, or Shivan fleet commanders and attempt to dominate their opponent with speed, firepower, and skill. A countering systems helps define the role of each type of ship- and fleets composed of many different types of vessels can take advantage of more one-dimensional opponents. Each faction has unique traits in their choice of warships and research options that differentiate them from their opponents. Almost all ships are modeled off of canon FS2 vessels, and their weapon damage, speed, and health are all adapted from the Freespace 2 game files. FSFC maps are usually randomly generated with a mixture of asteroid fields, cargo depots, dust clouds/nebulas, and jump nodes for a diverse and exciting experience. Players can choose to fight in the nebula beyond Gamma Draconis for a completeley different experience, or fight a gauntlet of AI enemy forces.

Sooner or later I'll get Homeworld and test this FreeSpace mod. I'd really like to see how FreeSpace ships behave in other engines. :)

Any chances to relive this mod? I mean, I know is complete, and it's fantastic!!! But Classic HW2 is so unstable... No plans for Remastered?

Really looking forward to the remastered version of this mod. The old engine has alot of limitations, and would be nice to get it moved over.

Same here. The FS1 era keeps going out of sync. But the infinite beams of Ravana still please me greatly.

Just thoughts if you are going to expand it into Remastered engine.

simple Macromedia Flash vector rescale on the current textures as I believe they dont have alphas.

I am of the mind the models dont need a turbomesh smooth.

The knossos and Jump Points would be an easy integration into the RP system they are babbling about.

Another thought is, what I wouldn't mind seeing is an asteroid base that could manufacture some of the OOP Descent models. For sheer cannon fodder or as an alternate race were it all began. :) Pipe dreams. :)

I am guessing most of your work would be focused on balance.

I am currently lost in X3-TC coding scripts for fun. :)
Am also about to finish off a script changes in Star Wolves 3, to get more playability out of the pirate factions. :)
Freelancer Modding is giving me some fun with Multiboxing hellstorms on these PCs.

Another happy gamer with your efforts. :)
Dont think what you do isn't appreciated, :D

Hey! I just jump in to say that this mod is an absolute gem!

Freespace is one of my favorite IP and i always wanted to play it at a strategic level. Did you ever considering contacting MatthTheGeek for expanding into the BLue planet arc?

Anyway keep the good work guys can't wait to see a remastered version!
