Genesis Mod for Freelancer. The future of Genesis and the plan going forward...

Posted by on

I've just released the Open Single Player version of Genesis, cunningly entitled Genesis 1.4 OSP. This will allow you to play the mod in Freelancer just after the storyline finishes. I've added a price randomiser to the mod, so all prices fluctuate, not just commodities but equipment prices as well. I've removed the cloaks as they won't work in Single player, for that you will need to go Multiplayer. Also removed the Multiplayer icon from the game menu just to make things easier.


For the Multiplayer side, currently on version Genesis 1.44 which allows you to play on the 24/7 Bananaworld server. This is the most stable version of the mod and since its launch in September this year, not had any issues on the server whatsoever. This version came with a bunch of fixes and upgrades to enhance gameplay, so should keep most players happy.


Installation for both versions requires Freelancer Mod Manager 1.3 available here on MODDB, later versions can cause issues with installation so please only use this version of mod manager. On a side note with later versions of Windows, install Freelancer and mod manager to a custom drive, don't use the default installation directories. Also install everything with Administrator privileges. This should help to get everything working correctly. Also please don't add anything extra to the mod like widescreen support or similar as i've already done that. The game should run on most systems without issue and in nearly every resolution i can think of. No need to mess with it. Also players should really read the included mod README file, lots of extra controls have been added, for instance you can remove the whole hud and in game cursor for screenshots or videos while in game, also there is a zoomable turret view amongst others.

Lastly, these updates will probably be the last ones i do. I'm not getting any younger and with so few players of Freelancer these days, it simply isn't worth the effort anymore. I'll always be here to throw questions at, and i'll happily support the mod either here or on the official Gizmo Studios forum. Want to thank everybody who has downloaded any of my mods, including MODDB for hosting them, without you it wouldn't have meant anything, thanks for you support and encouragement through the years.

See you in the black....
