"Homeless" begs for HLP hospitality - Freelancer!
Hello dear HLP community,

my name is RizZen, i'm a hobbie-game-modder from good old Germany. I'm 30+ years old and do game modding projects from my early youth on.

The list of games i took modwork in is endless. My last fun project was MechCommander 1! - some may already know me. If not - i published my MC-work here: http://www.nogutsnogalaxy.net/forum/index.php?board=389.0

The MechCommander project was one of the biggest game modifications i have ever done. I would like to say that i reinvented it from scratch - just in order to make the game more enjoyable - a better experience - just to enrich people's lifes. NOT - to please my wallet. When you would like to know more about my modding-intentions or MechCommander work you may have interest in that:




Well that's past. Somehow i lost fun in this project and stopped it. Due to the fact, that NoGuts-NoGalaxy is a pure BattleTech site i see no future there for my next project.

The next project will be "Freelancer"!

So what is Freelancer?

Freelancer was released by Microsoft in the early 21st century. In spite of it's age - it's well aged to me. What i really like is that this game STILL has an active player community... - and some active multiplayer game servers are left, too. My "project" will be to establish a new 24/7 gameserver with "vanilla" oriented content IN the game. Reason is: I have fun doing so.

That finally let me come to my desire. I would like to have a seperated forum section for Freelancer - related content. I like to bring order into chaos - working on big projects - and then enjoying them myself or with others.

RizZen, over and out!

Have you tried ModDB?  Pretty sure there's a huge freelancer section rather than trying to establish one here?

Re: "Homeless" begs for HLP hospitality - Freelancer!
AFAIK HLP had a FL section way in the past.

 
Re: "Homeless" begs for HLP hospitality - Freelancer!
What i like on Hard Light Productions is your forum php. moddb is not my first choice. I'd like to have it here and fill it with sorted information and new content the next years...

If you're already applying for hosting you know that HLP stands for Hard Light Productions and not Hardline Productions. :p

 
Re: "Homeless" begs for HLP hospitality - Freelancer!
I typed with my mobile... - on the way... sry.  :lol:

Okay - i see there are (again - and again - after four years active modding and publicity all over the place) people who think: RizZen? He wanna mod Freelancer? He's a dayfly!

Stop!

That already happened!

This postings where made in the early days of 2017.

See this: NoGutsNoGalaxy - RizZen's MechCommander Reinvention!

I bet wolfman-x was angry with himself the years after  :D. But i honored him and magic by implementing both into my Fullversion. It was downloaded +15.000 times (all versions together) when i left NGNG.



Honestly the thread title lies. Maybe i chose the wrong one and you are now thinking you are in a position compared to me - but you ain't! I elected YOU! I want to GIVE something BACK! MechCommander Gold - Darkest Hours would be here, too, today - when this little incedent wouldn't happen.

I already have STARTED modding Freelancer and i have an early Fullversion with Multi-Player feature for MMORPG server play and awesome PvP. And there will be much more. Harder NPCs, better Artificial Intelligence... Maybe this changes your opinion a bit:

All above is finished!
Below must be done:
_____________
Planned:

New Berlin
- adding "Hidden Force Base" - asteroidfield zone nebular

HC "Unknown Systems"
   - HC "Seth"
   - HC "Train"
   - HC Battleshup "Osiris"-class

_____________

HC faction NPC forces needs to be finally implemented later! There seems actually to be a simple
loadout problem with the code iam using. I will figure it out. Same counts for all other system
updates. A.I. Updates will follow - enhancing NPC force to become more competitive for long time
motivation.

_____________

V0.1 was the beginning. What i have to do now is to introduce all the other features that attracted
multiplayers for decades.
I will introduce MORE ships, mining zones, stations, systems, planets, ... enlarging the existent
universe orientated in a vanilla manner. I don't want to change the physical aspects for example.
The fighting and PvP system where close to be perfect and they only need fine adjustment. But
there will come up some new weapons and more possibilities to individualize the personal ship
by adding new engines (colors) - the Hamburg City Liner and later on ships with cloaking functions
or the legendary HC Seth Lvl.10 fighter - which is awesome!


This is my current mod development history for my Freelancer built. If you have doubts on my credentials... - ask Wolfman-X or magic - or take a look at user's feedback to me!

It´s a unique offer...
Sry for DP.

Of course i can publish it anywhere else - but read above. The time window for my desire shrinks - and that door won't be open forever. Please support my modding work.

I thought that's your slogan:

Bringing modders together! - Well here I am - let me be part of you!

I want to create, publish and design. I need this as worktable - not for establishing anything - it will establish itself later.

But HLP had ME - not!

Re: "Homeless" begs for HLP hospitality - Freelancer!
Did you PMed one of the Admins or asked on Discord? I'm sorry but so far nobody of the HLP staff seems to care (to compare, Battuta - one of the most prominent community members - made a hosting request as well, but over a year later nothing came out of it).

 
Re: "Homeless" begs for HLP hospitality - Freelancer!
Nope - may YOU ask them for me or maybe give the right person a "hint" / link?

My time is limited, too - and using Discord to organize / ask people for help - was inefficent to me in the past - so i refuse it, leaving my habits... like they are - i'm a forum user!

Re: "Homeless" begs for HLP hospitality - Freelancer!
Well I can see what I do about it. :)

 
Re: "Homeless" begs for HLP hospitality - Freelancer!
Allright, I asked on Discord about it~

 
Re: "Homeless" begs for HLP hospitality - Freelancer!
As incentive i think i will implement your name somehow - into my FL built  :D.

Now a little proof that i'm not talking rubbish. Some screens of my built. Now excuse me - i'm back in space, testing the new cloaking feature on my server - putting it to the acid-test:

Screens where taken with 1920x1080 (Widescreen 16:9 Upgrade).

The built has already DirectX9 compatibility intetgrated!

Don't panic from the "language" you see - when you play the US/UK versions - everything will be in english, of course!

:lol: Go scare people off~

 
Scaring people off - always was although part of the game - freelancer wan't build for pussies. Freelancer has an AWESOME vanilla PvP-System which is unique - and almost forgotten. There are only a handful servers left - but the "core" community never died!
So sad that there is no server left on which the "natural" spirit of vanilla pvp wasn't left untouched or - some kind of "overmodded". I would like to close this GAP. And i would like to mod a version of freelancer - i was always waiting for - but when you wait for something - you can wait forever - i put it in my hands now and will be passionate about for the next years - maybe longer.

Re: "Homeless" begs for HLP hospitality - Freelancer!
Just out of curiosity, how many people are playing the things you make?

 
Re: "Homeless" begs for HLP hospitality - Freelancer!
Well the uncompressed "Rules.ini" file for Command&Conquer - Tiberian Sun - was downloaded by several million users.

The "MechCommander" project had a total of 15.ooo downloads (all versions together) - when i stopped modding it.

Just two examples from the past. See the youtube - video above - many of "such" and the standard questions are answered in this "interview" - and there you can although hear one user of my work talking about my work...

Re: "Homeless" begs for HLP hospitality - Freelancer!
I've been very busy during the month of July and I guess all the other admins have been, too.  Sorry for not getting to your request until now.  Thanks to Nightmare for bringing this to my attention.

This looks terrific!  You've certainly demonstrated considerable progress and I can see you are very passionate about your modding work.

What are you specifically asking for?  Just a discussion forum?  A web page?  FTP space for hosting files?

 
Well, no Problem, dont worry about.

Indeed - in the first place im "just" asking for a discussion forum - to fill it with mod - and general FL content. In the same manner i did for MechCommander on NGNG.

Greetings, RizZ

Edit:

@Nightmare: Then only watch the last two minutes - i think it speaks for itself.
