Latest trade route!

New London to Cadiz (Omega 5 system) with water, Artifacts for the return trip. Over 130,000 credits per round trip. Could do even better but it means crossing the mine field in Omega5 and I can't be bothere with that.

Currently Lv9, flying the Bretonia Trade ship (forget the name). Explored up to Omega 7 but things started getting hairy!  :shaking:

i dont see why you want a sunslayer torpedo launcher for, if its just as useless as the starkiller i wouldn't want to buy it. you are better off with ordinary missiles.

bretonian trade ship is called the Clydesdale. big ugly thing it is, and for roughly the same credit you can get a dromedary which holds more with better weapons :P.

The thing that always bugged me about Freelancer was how better ships and equipment became available as the game progressed (which is fine), but since you go through game from region to region, Rheinland ends up having way better stuff than Liberty and such. I think they should have made things more balanced and given every region awesome ships and just make it so you can't get the best ships of any region until the end. But whatever.

That, and the fact that all the descriptions suck lollipop. If we consult Freelancer canon, we find out that Liberty is by far the strongest House, capable of fighting two other Houses simultaneously. But, if we compare ship stats, Liberty is weak as ****, Rheinland is the strongest House and the Corsairs and the Outcasts could mop the floor with the rest of Sirius.

however Rhineland has been through its fair share of wars in the past, the most notable according to freelancer is the GMG war, and that was the most bloody war the Germans and Japanese company ever encountered, so the Germans and Spanish seem to be the strongest within the Sirius sector, problem though. the spanish being corsairs, outcasts and a few other pirate factions excluding spa and cruise which no one seems to note that these border world forces don't even have gunboats let alone a cruiser in sight, just fighters.

until their is proof to the contrary, if they ally with any house, that house would be able to own the rest, good thing though that they dont and more or less hate one another, over pirate vs house, the closest pirate house friendship is the bounty hunters whos only aim is very much the same as edison trent, freelancing within a loose hierarchy of defected pirates from various sides who have created a somewhat strange peacekeeping force, by feeding off the crumbs that fell on the floor by the big houses who place out bounties where they know that that house cant just venture into other houses colonies to find them, with exception to Rhineland whos forces where manipulated by foreign orders.

The Discovery mod balances a lot of things by giving more ships for sale. This includes Juni's Defender, which is called the Avenger, and which can carry up to Class 9 weapons. However, Border World and Pirate ships have become even stronger; the Outcasts sell a very heavy fighter called the Outrider, while the Liberty Rogues sell a bomber called the Barghest, which is quite possibly the strongest small ship I've seen so far.

Another problem with the Anubis is that, although it is theoretically called "The Order Very Heavy Fighter", it is merely classified as a "Heavy Fighter".

if someone actually made a mod specifically for the "vanilla" version of freelancer and did some major revisions and tweaks to fix the balance issues within the game.. i wonder if Microsoft will actually release the gnu scp of freelancer. it would be far more helpful to make some serious bug revisions and fix many strange anomalies...

I've half a mind to take a look in the ship & weapon files and put everything to required level 1. That would make the big revenue generation actually worthwile.

I've got near > 2 million credits but can't buy anything really hot as still lvl10 (IIRC).

Oh, and running the Dromedary but running to the Omega11 base with pharmacuticals.

Surprisingly, the best GMG weapons (Class 9) are even better than Class 8 Outcast guns. :wtf:

update on my voyage of the damned  :P. i have reached kyushu.

Series X "dagger" border worlds light fighter
Avenger 2x
Ripper 2x
stunpulse turret
wasp cruise disruptor
razor mine launcher
advanced countermeasure launcher
advanced guardian shield level 4
advanced thruster
15 nonobots
15 shield regenerators
$110,000

i have in hold,

dragoon turret mk1, pyros mk2 2x, dublin duster mk2 2x, angelito turret, suncannon b 2x.


and the nomad guns are even better, however if the fast fire rate and energy consumption are good ratings they can outmatch such weapons, but the problem is if your up against other players you will only get 1 maybe 2 shots and they have to count, so such a refire rate means nothing esentially even with a refire of 2 :ick:

yes and their is also a turanic raiders fighter on the water planet of the Shikoku system.

the kiith fighter though looks very odd with just one arm, imo looks ugly as a fighter. most of the fighters in the discovery mod are ugly. however i used a bsg class 2 fighter, i cannot remember its name, bought it at freistadt base in one of the omega systems.

Viper. Yes, Discovery mod adds BSG and Homeworld stuff. In one system you can even buy a Battlestar Galactica ( colonial battlestar more like it ).

The Rebalance Mod adds even more crack. I once came across the GTF Apollo for sale. Because I had little money, I had to pass it by.

Then I bought a A-Wing. :wtf:
