I've flown a Manticore in FL.

Anyone remember my suggestion/idea a while back? To make a FS FL mod? It's entirely possible, and would be like an RPG and etc. Kinda a fun idea, at least in my opinion.

a gtf apollo!! lol, what level is the ship?, some of the prices on the discovery mod are very high to almost impossible. i have flown the bsg retrofit on fl mod, its rubbish really.

I think it supported up to Class 6 weapons.

If you're still on Discovery and you have lots of cash to spare, go buy a Barghest from Buffalo. It's a bit slow, but it has a lot of hull strength. :nod:

Are the old Freespace ships on Discovery?

Someone has to post directions for me, i never leave New London as it's too far north and accents tend to be funny.

I can't at the moment because I don't have the mod installed. However, I clearly remember that the Rebalance Mod has FS1 ships for sale.

Discovery has a text file with the location of all the ships. Then there's a system map.

  • I'm a minefield of information.
Rebalance has FS1, FS2 and a fair few SW ships in it.  I remember finding an Erinyes in the New York system.

I prefer the mods that keep it in-universe though.  Taking on a bunch of Ties in my Titan just didn't feel right....

I know. That's why I liked the Discovery mod more. It built on the un-modded Freelancer, such as expanding the line of Very Heavy Fighters into Bombers.

The thing I don't like about the Discovery mod, however, is that warships are a pain to fly. I'm amazed that Colonel likes doing it.

Hmmm. I wonder if you can find the Fury in FL... probably not...

Just in case you were wondering, the Fury is the unit used in Fire Fight, one of EA's earlier games.

Fire Fight! I want to play it! I only saw it twice at Tampines many years ago, but that's enough to compel me to try it out for myself!
* Androgeos Exeunt clears his throat.

In any case, I've already found most of the wrecks in vanilla, and I have 700 000 credits AND a maxed out Border Worlds Sabre.

So, stick that in your mind, Edison Trent, if you're still lamenting about a million credits! :p

lol $700,000 is nothing, try $63,630,000 it will take you 2 to 3 days if committed enough.

i am downloading the mods along with the flmm program. it will take me another 1 hour and 50 minutes to complete downloading at 14 kb/sec for both download. lol i still use a 56k, so i can never play over the net at this time, the broadband connection is too expensive for my taste.

Discovery gives you that urge to go online and play with other people, because it has things like IDs and credit cards.

i just played that rebalance mod for a few hours, its a very odd mod for freelancer indeed, i do not like it, its rubbish imo.

i would by lying if i said i would never wanted to play online with the discovery mod, however if you wish google it up their are servers still in operation on freelancer, im sure one of these sites that runs the mod will just put an ip address for a server out so you can go play on.

Indeed. It turns the game into a rubbish crossover. Freelancer meets Star Wars meets Earth Alliance meets FreeSpace? :wtf:

Hmm...the official site should have server locations. One of these servers (was it Hamburg?) shot past the 128-player limit before, I think.

yes androgeos, but overall the mod still doesnt deserve the award its looking for, even though the discovery mod was boring, it gets a better :yes: then the rebalanced mod. even the justice mark beam weapon is better imo :P.

seriously though, if it is called a rebalance mod, then thats what is should be, not a freepsace vs starwars vs, what ever else mod.

i might bini the ini files, edit the script xml and such to rebalance what i might think are a good balance, along with changes in weapons levels hopefully.
