This is a small mod, that may serve as building block for others. If you have your own Freelancer mod, you are encouraged to include anything you like in it

For the perfect space-soundtrack I recommend Dynatron(@Bandcamp).

This Mod adds:

  • 12 new playable ships
  • 4 new not playable ships
  • 1 new System and 8 new Stations
  • 26 new Weapons, 8 new missiles, 6 new shields and 4 new thrusters
  • 42 new ale effects and 9 new beam effects
  • 51 new sound effects
  • 2 new factions

Thanks go to:

  • The Starport Community for all their insights on how Freelancer works
  • Schmackbolzen and Skotty for their work on sur files
  • MIC for FLScanII
  • FriendlyFire and adoxa for all their tools

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 am getting this error when activating the mod: Error: FLMM has determined that 'Leuchtfeuer V1.3' won't properly activate.
Error: Unable to find dest 'equip = ge_mnr_engine_01' in 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Freelancer\DATA\SHIPS\loadouts_utility.ini'

I installed the game through the regular installer and installed it to the default location, i ran and installed the 1.1 patch with admin rights it says it completed it successfully, i installed the JFLP patch located here: Adoxa.altervista.org , and then i attempted to install your mod and got the error above. I have FLMM 1.5 like you linked in your readme, and i launched it with administrator privileges before attempting to activate this mod

any advice?

i have played the campaign for 1-2 hours with no issues, so my game install seems fine.

edit: i removed the following lines from your "Script.xml" and the mod installed without issue:

<data file="DATA\\SHIPS\\loadouts_utility.ini" method="sectionreplace">
<section>
[Loadout]
nickname = ge_miner_co_01
</section>
<dest>
equip = ge_mnr_engine_01
</dest>
<source>
;equip = ge_mnr_engine_01 FLServer meldet sonst Fehler
</source>
</data>
<data file="DATA\\SHIPS\\loadouts_utility.ini" method="sectionreplace">
<section>
[Loadout]
nickname = ge_miner_co_02
</section>
<dest>
equip = ge_mnr_engine_01
</dest>
<source>
;equip = ge_mnr_engine_01 FLServer meldet sonst Fehler
</source>
</data>

i don't know why this was causing an issue, but hopefully it helps you figure out the problem

tl,dr: Just ignore it, it's no big deal

==== Explanation ====
Well, it is to be expected that you get into trouble if you add additional patches/mods.

To increase compatibilty I only modify small bits of the game files if possible instead of just replacing whole files. But the script responsible for this search cannot find one of those bits.

In this case it was a bugfix, because the Server (correctly) complains that a space station has got an engine. It is a bug that made it into the Freelancer release and JFLP already fixed it, so my mod tries to fix it again differently and that fails...

Which presents us with two options:
1 Remove the bugfix from the mod with the obvious consequences...
2 Add JFLP to the mod, which I opted not to do, as I don't know if it will be worth the invested time.

How do I install the 1.1 patch if it goes to the original game directory which is C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Games/Freelancer. My game is not there.

The Patch has always worked for me this far(>5 times), so I can only guess that you are missing registry entries. Did you by chance not install Freelancer with the installer?

Anyway, I assume the responsible key on amd64 is:
Hkey_Local_Machine\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Freelancer\1.0\

It should contain a string called "AppPath"
that holds the path to the Freelancer directory(if not, then correct it)

Content wise I consider this mod to be finished, as Freelancer only lets you do so much, although the community continously strives to expand the possibilities.(check out Librelancer)

Honestly, while creating this mod was very educational an fun, it also took much time, as I am its sole creator.

However if I do find serious bugs or the players dislike the balance/difficulty I may release an update in the future.
