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.

I agree with you, Al. In fact, I find it ironic that it's called the "Rebalance" mod when it "unbalances" the game. I mean, when you first start off, you fly some messed up claw thing that's equipped with a Class 7 port, while the remaining ports can only mount up to, what, Class 3?

The weapons drain is so unbalanced that, most of the time, you find yourself running out of energy. I flew the A-Wing, and its powerplant was rubbish! :hopping:

is the discovery mod very different  from vanilla? I have been playing discovery instead of vanilla and it seems pretty much what I expected vanilla to be like. it's a little tough though.

Well, for one thing, you can't fly battleships in vanilla, nor do you have to worry about buying tractor beams and IDs. However, attacking the Nomads won't do you any good in the game, apart from the occasional one dropping a Nomad weapon. The Order, The Wild and Nomads are not factions you can work for. In addition, only certain bases and planets sell ships. Shipyards, for example, don't sell ships. And in the event where you land on a base or planet that sells ships, you will never see more than three ships for sale, especially in the Border Worlds or pirate bases.

Oh, and you can't skip the cutscenes either. :p

the original freelancer is better then the mods. i will see about a simple sort of patch in the version of a mod.

the battleships in the discovery mod are horrible things, your better off in fighters, leave the attacking to AI's its what they where designed to do.

hmm look what I found



I'm stuck now, though. I can get contraband on the cheap in the outer pirate systems but, as I'm on very good terms with criminals, neutral with bountyhunters and the fuzz (save liberty & rheinland) but hostile to zoners and the big corporations I've nowhere to sell or anywhere to go to collect stock for the return trip. As soon as I approach trade lanes, planets, legit bases etc a hostile super transport appears and all the surrounding presence turns hostile too  :mad:
I can see some huge profit here but can't exploit it!

Do Outcast's missions and then proceed to spend an entire afternoon blowing up xenos. That will clear your problems.

You can shoot the Hispania, but don't expect it to blow up. Instead, spend the next few minutes mining the area for Scrap Metal. :p

The REAL profits can be found around the Unknown Jump Hole in Omicron Alpha.

I got a little carried away in pirate bars, paying to improve my standing with the criminal factions.

Yeah but I'm still at lvl11 (IIRC) and those nomad fighters make a right mess of a my 'lil fighter. Seriously, one shield hit and two hull shots and i'm dead. When I'm feeling brave, I'll venture from Planet Malta and raid the Nomad squad for the odd scrap weapon.

If you arrive to Omicron Alpha from the Tau-somethingoranother system, it's a tad bit right from Malta.

Or if you fly towards the little planet thingy right next to Malta, you should pick the Hispania up on the map.

Omicron Alpha is waaay up on the "galactic" map. Check the system maps from the link. The Hispania is very close to the Viking wreck.

as you approach malta, look right you see a pink planet behind an orange planet, that orange planet is called Vesuvius, next to Vesuvius is Malta on your left and on the right is a small debris field and a ship wreckage. in that wreckage is the hispania and a bounty hunter ship called viking, the viking wreckage is lootable, should have level 10 weapons.

this flmm is annoying, i am trying to create a ship with some differences however it is not working, i load it up ok, it enters into the game i load up and look in the ship buying place, see two ships and an empty slot with an anti grav beam on, i see no sign of  the ship in the selection screen either... :no:. i had to reinstall freelancer as i had it removed i forgot to remove the mod that was active in flmm, it wouldn't deactivate, both flmm and freelancer needed a reinstall, its not worth my time if it can not do as i ask..

I got bored of being jumped by heavy wrecking squads and loaded an earlier save. Had to redo some exploration but no big deal. Also bribed Zoners to friendly. Now pretty much everyone is neutral/going friendly save for Corsairs (friendly), Rheinland (hostile) and Liberty (Hostile) and some criminal factions I don't care about.

Plan now is to head to Liberty, avoid all security forces and kill Xeons. And maybe the odd Bounty Hunter.
Using a Drake light fighter which should prove handy in Liberty systems.

you can actually "cheat" in the game in a way that is more or less ignorant to you; meaning you dont see it.
when you play the campaign you can go hostile against every law abiding company and security force because in mission 4 you will be enemies to them anyhow, which puts you at a significant advantage in the long run, your probably wondering how can i land on the planet when im shooting theirs down and in the red, once the mission begins the docking ring automatically turns green and allows you to land, no matter what you do in kusari or bretonia, while turning against them wont do any harm in the long run as your rep will be altered after the mission will begin and the nomads have been expelled from the Sirius sector via the hyper gate where all or most of the factions in sirius will resume from where your rep was when you started out at level 0 before you met king.

I have it modded, so I have a Klingon Bird of Prey, and 10 Advanced lasers. I have a 3000 km/s cruise engine, which surpasses the jump gates. I can tear apart any ship in seconds. I am enemies with everybody.

I MAKE A NEW GAME

It FCKING Rocks. Kind of boring, though after you beat the story mode and such. I like playing with some Xfire buddies in multi, where I am a Freighter, and they all protect me. In multi, you HAVE to have guards if you want to fly Trader. Or else the other players shoot the hell out of you.

Did the Dragons mission with the Arch base and now almost every shipping company and authority is hostile  :mad:
The Xeons will have to be sacrficed in the name of an improved rep for Trent.

Found another "unknown" jump hole. This too is guarded by a wing of Nomad Fighters and leads to a system which can only be described as "trippy". Kind of like a tube, full of huge twig like strutures. Really weird background. Two planets. One is hostile and so unknown the other appears to be a terraforming project. It's occupied only by robots. Nopthing to buy or sell, no missions, no ship repairs and a bar full of robots with nothing to say. Essentially pointless, but an interesting find nontheless.
