Renegade Resurgence is a mod for FreeSpace 2 that is played some years after the Capella incident. The player is a rookie pilot for the GTVA (Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance), and immediately finds himself at the core of events. Soon, the GTVA will realize that what they thought as a pirate organization is actually something more menacing. The stability and existence of the galaxy-spanning alliance is once again imperiled by a group of renegade Terrans and Vasudans who go against their own species with the intent to destroy the GTVA and replace its government with their own.

RR focuses on gameplay and thorough mission design. Restoring the feeling of the original FreeSpace 2 campaign is the main focus of RR, with more emphasis on actual combat. The mod includes several new weapons, each having its unique use.

Storywise, Renegade Resurgence is like a war novel. You are a recruit pilot who joins the faltering GTVA. Know what it means to escape from an enemy, defend, attack, rescue, and spy. For a less intense, more story-driven campaign by the same author, see Into the Halls of Valhalla. If you like military campaigns, take a look at the Luyten Civil War, a shorter, but higher-quality mod.

Renegade Resurgence has gone through a major overhaul since its last release, and is now available in 2021.

Major changes include:

  • All 31 missions have been revisited to various degrees. There were major alterations and additions to most of them. There were numerous bugfixes, thus you will be able to play through all the thirty missions without show-stopping bugs.
  • Apart from the mandatory bughunt, this update's primary focus was to provide a fun playthrough not present in the earlier releases. Thus, gameplay has improved a great deal. There are a lot of quality-of-life improvements compared to the previous v1.1 release, including many more messages that give you useful advice on how to approach a given situation, more informative briefings, directives, mission goals, and a more intuitive use of the escort list.
  • Pilot banter and, generally speaking, mission messages have become more military-like and mature. There's also far less yelling !!! during the missions.
  • Use of Lightspeed's nebula backdrops and the old, low-quality planet images have all been replaced with high-quality ones.
  • Non-retail music tracks provided by fellow HLPer ShadowOfLight, freeplaymusic, and other sources.
  • Inclusion of the GTF Rapier, also known as the TF Kvasir as a Myrmidon Mark II.

Reminder: Feel free to post comments here if you don't want to register at HLP just to give me some feedback. I'm always open to suggestions and constructive criticism.

RR's downloads will be revised today. If you come across a broken link that is supposed to be a download mirror for Renegade, it's because either I haven't repaired it, or slipped over it. Please report any broken links to help me keep Renegade easily available.
