ahh yes, planet Gammu. with 2 suns, one nearby the planets and "one center field 150 clicks out" *SOC commander snipes, imitation* and these strange objects in between the planets where the nomads patrol. the background looks like your either inside a huge nomad entity implying in no uncertain terms the hypergate didn't stop the nomads and the Sirius colonies are not safe either, however i am unsure on that presumption.

But concidering that the inhabitants of the planets are monkeys and robots, the whole system is most likely just a little wtf left there by the designers.

you must be a dev big or small time in some sorts, im sure even you need a little time to do something fun after a long haul project.

it can be fun when your on a server where you have been stripped of your level, money and left with a starflier on one of the 2 unknown planets, and you have to make it back home, its very fun! with corsairs, neutron star hull impacted and mines of one sort or another :D and not to forget the lethal traps that can sometimes cross your path :pimp: and so on.

I really like the Discovery Mod. And it is really popular at the moment. Official Server has capacity for 200 and Ive never seen it with less than 50 players on. The other popular mod seems to be Void 2115 which was the most popular mod before Disocvery.

I like Discovery because you can really play as either the police, trader or pirate.
police - can kill pirates, charge traders for escort duties, take pirate loot.
traders - can kill pirates, have big cargo space
pirates - can kill police or traders, take their loot, have their own region of space which is their own country.

i havent flown the cap ships yet but they are uber powerful and very long ranged with weapons (bombers can slay them). i dont think manoeuvering them is meant to be like flyig a fighter so to me its ok.

try deactivating the discovery mod and any other mods and try the nomad battleship mod that came with the flmm program, and tell me that again with the battleship movement :P.

besides freelancer wasn't designed with players using battleships in mind, their are many bugs in that case. its one of the reasons why i don't like the discovery mod.

Indeed. You can't exactly dock with a shipyard with anything larger than a bomber, and you can only land on planets by mooring with the Mooring Fixture, if any. This is why I don't like using battleships in Discovery.

I admit that the Dreadnaught Captana is quite nice, though.

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.

Where exactly, out of curiousity? I've gone looking for the unknowns before but my directions have always been epic fail it seems.

NGTM-1R: corsairs system Omi gamma, f2 near the middle of that sector, nearby corsairs wrecks have salamanca Mk 1's aboard. enter into that jh and end up in unknown system with 2 planets, 2 suns and strange looking space bergs nearby.

Topgun: colorado in the silverton field has a xenos base named Ouray and one in Ames inside the left hand radiation cloud looking at it from on the map. you stay near these bases, you can kill packs and hordes of xenos here.

Azile0: Friendly Universe v2, it comes bundled with the original freelancer mod manager.

The one in Omicron Alpha is quite easy to find since it almost pops up on the map when you fly to the Omicron Beta jump hole. I think it was a tad bit "up" and "left" on the map. And as land marks, the unknown holes in Omicron Alpha and Omicron Gamma are surrounded with Outcast and Corsair wrecks, respectively.

I also heard from an Outcast on Planet Malta that they respect or worship the Nomads, so all the Outcast Fighters near the Unknown Jump Hole point towards it.

worship? no, respect maybe. to worship the nomads is like saying i love the occupational army that's taken my homeland and i love them for killing everyone i loved and respected, because that's what they do so long as it works for the nomads.

if the nomads are only interested in protecting their jump hole near omi beta jump hole then the outcasts do not need to respect them fiercely, however for all you know it might be out of respect for fear which could be why they warn anyone else like the corsairs to keep anyone away from their, its also a coincidence the designers put them dead fighters near these jump hole so the nomads can protect them from graverobbers. who knows.

will just killing them make my rep better? I thought I needed to kill them in missions.
and, I found a unknown jumpgate in new york, but it's surrounded by mines. how can I get in there?

 
Stock up on Nanobots, in the campaign you actually enter that system which is called Alaska. in single player there is an actual "tunnel" so to speak to the gate. But i don't know if that tunnel is there in MP
