V1.1 Update


Because of the installation troubles many were facing I reinstalled Freelancer yesterday to test if I had forgotten something important in the release version, but couldn't find anything. I played on my server for three hours without a crash. However I found some issues that made it to the release version and decided to fix them.

To update the mod make sure you always follow this procedure:

  1. Deactivate the mod
  2. Close the Freelancer Mod Manager
  3. Replace the old version with the new files
  4. Start Freelancer Mod Manager
  5. Reactivate the mod


Version 1.1, bugfix update, on the 18th of February 2018:

Important: If you fly a Phobocaster or a Val Varo, make sure your used cargo space is below the new limit before you update to V1.1!
+Added the readme.txt to help with the installation problems that many were facing.
*The cargo size description on the adler and merkur was outdated, it should have been 750 instead of 600
*The cargo size description on the drache was outdated, it should have been 437 instead of 350
*The cargo size description on the Val Varo was outdated, it should have been 62 instead of 84
*The cargo size description on the phobocaster was inconsistent and used an old value. Changed it from 84 to 61
+New loadout for the Feary docking ring
+New loadout for the Werft
->updated the mod and the project files

Leuchtfeuer V1.1

Leuchtfeuer V1.1


This mod is an addition to vanilla Freelancer. It rebalances a lot of the original content, but the campaign still remains playable. Follow the instructions...


I have a problem:
When I launch freelancer with this mod installed (with FLMM 1.5 beta), it crashes while loading the main menu.
anyone knows why?

So I investigated this week end and here are the results:
-I developed this mod on FLMM v1.5 beta 1 so I don't expect any issues from there
-It will crash at startup if you haven't installed the official Freelancer V1.1 Patch
-Maybe other mods interfere with my mod, thats just a guess though.

So to fix this try the following:
-deactivate the mod
-if you think you have got leftovers from other mods, clean them up or reinstall Freelancer
-make sure you have installed the official Freelancer V1.1 patch
-activate the mod again
-try playing, it should work now

First of all sorry I took so long to reply, but I didn't expect any installation trouble.

Which is also why I don't know what you mean by server.dll problem, you will need to elaborate a bit.
Anyway, there are only two dlls that are essential for the mod; the leuchtfeuer.dll which contains all names and descriptions and the moors.dll which is needed for the corvette docking. The others only contain some aesthetic fixes and are not mandatory for the mod.

As for FLMM, I think I developed on 1.5 but I can't check that right now.

tl,dr: You can use the server.dll from Freelancer

This mod is designed with the Freelancer Mod manager in mind. As such, it will not work if you just copy the new files to your freelancer directory. It will probably just crash at startup. Get the mod manager here ( and copy the Leuchtfeuer directory to the mods folder. Start the mod manager and you should be able to activate the mod.
