This video blog covers the new tactical overview functionality we are in the process of implementing, never seen before in Freelancer.

The teasing about the tactical overview has an end! I finally show it to you ingame with a video blog. Note that this is still a work-in-progress and will likely get expanded more in the future. However, as regards the basic features, I'd say its more or less complete.


If you'd like to check out Allegiance by which the tactical overview is inspired, head over to www.freeallegiance.org and give it a try. It's free and open source!
Interested in Freelancer? Check out the demo here!

Stay tuned for future updates. We are here to stay!

As always any comments, suggestions or questions are always welcomed!

How about a controllable NPC fleet? Cause that's what we're working towards.

Ya. We're in the process of making that functional. Essentially, you'll be able to order the NPC around. It's still in the planning/coding phases, but we think we can make it a reality :)

What?? That sounds AMAZING! I always wanted to be able to take point more often in Vanilla Freelancer, like in side missions, and be able to give commands to NPC's

Love how the icons are similar to XWing vs Tie Fighter. Hell I love how the whole game is similar to Xwing vs Tie Fighter lol.

Ya. XvT is the concept we based the mod on from the beginning. I'm glad that comes through :)
