Starlancer Reborn originally was a personal dream of reviving my favorite game with the help of a new engine. This mod is based on the Freelancer prequel called Starlancer.


Other than the already existing mods Starlancer Reborn is designed to introduce a new concept of gameplay. The mod is playable in multiplayer only and the player has to join one of two factions, the western alliance or the eastern coalition. Once choosen the player has to fight for this faction in a sector based grid of the sol system. The ultimate task is to gain the domination over the entire system.

Teamplay, roleplay, tactics and massive fights... thats what makes this mod extremly interesting for players that love to fight.

This mod belongs to the long term modding projects as its exclusivly developed by me alone (OP-R8R). Since other projects of the SWAT development group are also based on Starlancer every development there also pushes the Starlancer: Reborn mod. Meanwhile I can say that most ships, stations and graphical work is finished while only the creation of system sectors is waiting to get finshed. So we are not that close from a release. Maybe even in 2009.

System Structure

Feature

Since this project is very much different from all other Freelancer mods the structure of the entire mod is also different.

The game does play in the sol system which is divided into 25 sectors. Those sectors can be compared with the systems of the original Freelancer. 10 systems will be controlled by the alliance, 10 systems will be controlled by the coalition, 5 neutral systems. That are the starting conditions.

Once the player has choosen one side he can team up with other members of his faction to fight the enemy faction members can take control over the neutral systems and later also take control over the enemy systems until one faction does dominate the entire sol system.

The ownership of the systems is getting calculated with a server sided tool that already is being used on the Crossfire server. The Robotic Referee System (RRS). Depending on the success of the fights the systems change the ownership and the loosing faction has to win the system back in order to use the stations and facilities of that system.

Together with many tactical elements this is a mix of RP and PVP where the players are forced to act.

Did I die and go to heaven?

This is something I've wanted for so long! I was always mad that the Eastern Coalition took over Sol. Now I can get revenge and rewrite history. Once this comes out, I am downloading it, joining the Western Alliance, and kicking some Coalition butt!

I'm guessing this is what delayed the Crossfire Mod release date by a whole year?
