_____________

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!


____________
v0.2 is a Vanilla Freelancer Built with integrated HC Features. With this built the Original Vanilla
Version becomes obsolete. You can say: This is the new Vanilla FL 2019 - with modern technical stan-
dards like HUDShift and other plugins integrated in the core game. In order to achieve this built i
had to "rebuild" the HC Server Features onto a classic Vanilla Built. This way of modding is so important
for me to do - cause the Original HC Server files where built with the vanilla files, scripts and some
other third party programs. It even had a web-control feature and many ingame features are actually
web-controlled. The problem with this is - the web-support of Hamburg City is offline. Things like
the Original Charmanager from HC site can't actually be used anymore at the moment. This is the reason
i had to rebuilt it from scratch. There is no easy way to cut those integrated functions out without
making the built corrupt doing so. The way with possibly more workload is better cause i could manage
to use all functions without web-interfaces or html-bindings. This way the game becomes a bit more
smooth, too - because every ping on the server is although a possibly lag reason. The built i have
created maybe web-compatible - means exporting playerstats or serverstatus won't be a problem - but
the common Charmanager won't work with my version. I would like to give it a try: Integrating the
functions people could use with web-interfaces - directly into the game. There are ideas and plans
for an Ingame only lampshop at the moment. But there will be more. The basic Vanilla Mod Version
is not online at the moment - but it runs like a charm and could be put online anytime. But before
it will be released and online there are some more things to do. The basic version still has some
minor bugs and issues and i've not even started to recompile the core *.ini's. The way up to v0.3
will be bugsolving and finally implementing the last missing elements that won't work yet.


____________
v0.75 is a better Vanilla Freelancer Built with integrated "Hamburg City Server" features and allot
bugsolving. I recompiled all new mod content so that it fits into the Vanilla basic code. In addition
i deleted all obsolete code lines i could find.
The SDK source is cleaned from clanbases, clan factions and several modded archetypes (mostly bases).
The reason for this is that the Hamburg City server is web-controlled. This means that not all clan
data is part of the game files. Some datas will only be delivered by server when the player uses the
related content. Those web-functions i had to cut off. The reason for cutting those functions off is
that ANY software that pings on the gameserver - any website that is reading data from server is an
additional affliction that corresponds with the total server capability.
This doesn't mean that Freelancer - Memories won't contain any web-related features in the future -
but WHEN - they won't be like on Hamburg City. I inhalated all mod-content that fits into my personal
desires - how i would like to have Freelancer done - in the first place (2003).
The modding Crew on HHC -> www.freelancerserver.de did a great job. Through all the years they never
left the vanilla oriented path they where going. But the web-features are one way into the wrong di-
rection from my point of view. The basic game was unfinished. The vanilla conditions you find when you
open the native game files are a good basement for modding. The "Hamburg City" content i have introduced
into this basic built now - combined with widescreen features for enjoying the game in HD / 16:9
resolution are the best basement for the way i will mod this game now. The Vanilla unfinished content
got an absolutely awesome expansion. This expansion allows players to enjoy the game with nowadays
modern computers (but although with older hardware), players can do mining in asteroid fields,
players can setup "repair ships" for assisting other ships / capitals, the "novabomb" is a good weapon
against capital ships for small fighter squads that attack them, the physical basement for using
capital ships like battleships, big transports or liners is layed and the "player" ship content - means
the ships that can be used by players - got extended, the relations & competitive skills of houses got
rebalanced, cloaking ships are introduced - yeah cloak used by players, the unknown systems got
overhauled and extended/completed - they where unfinished. Bases that where only available rudimentary
or had missing options for players are functioning 100% now, harder A.I. npc forces than in the
original, high-level missions on more places than Gamma, the docking system got overhauled, some
new commodities are available, new systems (Vanilla oriented), a Neutral Zone got implement - you can
see it as "Deathmatch" or "Pvp" zone - this neutral zone has low detailed background graphics like
starsphere and has no npc forces in it. As the name says it is "neutral" - so weapon fire in any
case doesn't damage player's reputations and the low FX has the effect that this system has less
potential lag - so that official competitions in PvP have the best circumstances in the Neutral Zone,
some bases (docking slots) where updatet & bugfixed - f.e. i corrected the "camera" data so that
any docking ship will be seen as a whole - not being overlaid by the bases so that player only see
a base wall when ship docks, players have more "Speed-Docking" possibilities now, big freighters
can dock on way more bases than in the vanilla built, new npc fleets in space, npc capital fleets
with battleships, corvettes, cruisers or bombers are flying in sirius, Alpha-Nomad attacks in Dublin
and some more little additions or fixes.

Today i tested the new Artificial Intelligence. The common difficulty level limit of Freelancer was 19. In the game you never met harder enemies. My mod built allows Lvl 20-25 and any imagineable expand later. The screenshot above shows the Hamburg City NPC Security in modded Hamburg System. The HC Liner Security guard. As you can see they are right now the hardest Vanilla Type ships you have ever met with. Better keep your reputation to HC green!

FL-Memories version log update
version log 0.25 got replaced by v0.75

---

I did more than expected in that short time i do this. I have created a vanilla built of the original game, extended it with features that makes the game really playable in an open world with endless possibilities. Now i left the path of implementing the Hamburg City content. The universe will be enlarged. There will be more NPC factions and house systems. More to discover, more to enjoy. All will be Vanilla oriented in the end.

Actually the built is not shareable in my point of view. I would like to finish my work to a certain point when it goes finally public. But here some screenshots of what you can expect to see on this server-mod built:


Hamburg City Kusari Blood Dragon


Hamburg City Hidden Force Base


Hamburg City Liner


Train (Large transport) landing


Train (Large transport) landing2


New docking camera for bretonian battleships


New docking camera for bretonian battleships 2


Novabomb explosion effect


Patriot landing on planet Harris

Okay - above is a nice gallery - showing some things i've implemented yet.

Actually i'm rewriting "Tekagi's base" in Tohoku. So far - Tohoku has a dockable station Ryuku - owned by the Blood Dragons. The Blood Dragons infiltrated the Kusari Navy Forces and have stolen allot military technical data. They have stolen the plans for the new Very Heavy Level 10 Fighter - used by Naval Forces and Police units. You can "buy" this ship on Ryuku. The Genpei Josuiki fighter. Second in place the Blood Dragons have although plans for Kusari battleships.


The original sprites where created by a guy named Kuze. He shared his custom made ships for Freelancer for free usage under the act of freedom of information. The good thing with his shippacks was: The graphic-design i don't need to do. The bad thing: All other stuff that is needed to make those files a playable ship where not existent. So i needed to modify the files in order to add the missing content. Such like hardpoints. Hardpoints for lights, equipment, weapons - engines - everything that is needed as information by the game needed to be created. So i'm done with that. The first "new" vanilla design oriented ship got introduced and works like a charm.

Actually i'm working on the Golden Chrysanthemums and Blood Dragons. Both got an additional base. Blood Dragons own Ryuku base and GC owns "Tekagi's place". I set the brackets cause at the moment in my version Tekagi's base doesn't look this way anymore:



It looks more like:










This is the new "Tekagi's Base"-complex. Way more inhabitants:









So Tekagis base, sphere, minefield are done. Actually i'm filling this base with life and ingame options. There will be another ship for sale then. A Kusari "Pirate" transporter. It will be leaned on the dromedary class but with a Kusari Design, more cargo and, of course a higher selling prize. A solid - midclass transporter that will be usable by BD & GC forces and players.

There will be another additional base in the tekagi sphere - and a "black-market". It will be only possible to enter this base area by jumping through a nomad-style gate built by GC & BD forces in order to improve the existent defenses that have been restored over the years. The shield that was protecting the "head quarter" is about 4km large now. In the second sphere around tekagis asteroid are mines. They protect BD & GC new "home". The numerous defense turret of the base complex do the rest. The Kusari Navy and Police forces try desperately to stop the coalition from growing. The second base i place in the area will be a shipyard. A shipyard where battleships will be produced for Blood Dragon Special Force Units. The battleships already exists - when you look above. This will be the place where those ships will be produced by A.I. factions.

----

But this is not the only thing that will be new. Rheinland will get one additional system. This will be a "rebalance". Cause in my mod there are (in spite liberty - which is a newbie area) - high level places on all big sectors now - in spite of Rheinland. Rheinland will have the system "Bremen" connected to Leipzig and maybe Frankfurt. All those new systems above will be connected in the end version. But they will be connected in a way that "other" new systems will allow now balance touching "short" ways like abusive trade routes for example. The path won't be longer than in the original but take approximately the same amount while traveling through. There will just be additional options for setting routes to fly. And there will be new NPC factions and areas. In addition there will be a "Memories" area where all the old Hamburg City clans will be honored with - stuff.

Important Mod Informations
Hello dear Freelancers,

my Freelancer Mod is on a good way. The "Hamburg City Features" are implemented into my Vanilla built. Many thanks to Nosferatu, HC-community and w0dk4! Finally i could close this chapter of modwork (some issues are there but will be solved on a long term) and started designing additional Star Systems.

The first additional system is System Tohoku - Kusari. It exists in the original version but was only available for singleplayer stoy campaign mode. The system was closed for the regular open world or multiplayer modes. Now Tohoku can be visited. But that is not the only thing. I put life into it by adding bases, npcs and two additional Kusari Shipclasses that "rebalance" the houses technologies. Kusari got a level 10 fighter and a solid midclass freighter - used by NPC's and players in the game.
In addition Tohoku became a "high-level" system. That means: Better A.I. enemies, harder missions and more competitive stuff inside. And the new "Tekagi's Base Complex" is really becoming a big thing:


The second additional system Bremen - Rheinland. There is not much known about it yet. Actually im creating an infrastructure. There will be allot additional stuff for Rheinland then. It will become a High-Level system, f.e.



So at the moment there exists a full working built of my mod. There are some minor bugs here and there - but it works fine. Me and my comrades had some funny moments with it in the past weeks.

So when will this be released?

 - Actually i could - but don't want to release it officially at the moment. I'm a perfectionist when we go over talking about game modding. And still - there always will be bugs (even if minor) in the end. So there are some  major and minor things of vital importance to me - that i wanna fix - and i would like to extend the "ingame" content. And i have to do allot story work. My version is set 200 years after the original story. This is history that i want to have explained by the game - ingame - when im playing. So i create many "infocards" and references to historical events.

How may it go online faster?

- Depends on the "feedback" of users - weather the basic version is still be played or not. My built is strongly vanilla oriented. It is designed to be operable on several pc computer systems with different age or OS conditions. That more people start to download and enjoy the original version - that more feedback they give - when having trouble installing it, getting through certain ingame missions or whatever. This way you as regular forum user can take part into the developing process and the release of a "new dimension" of basic freelancer will be near.


Current modwork todo-list:

Code: [Select]
- solving all minor bugs after implementing new tohoku system design
- adding more content and systems
- balance npc factions - adding, designing and implementing new npc difficulty types and fleets
- finishing system Bremen
- adding new "border/edge" world systems with new factions and properties
- usage of "capital ships" - by players
- finishing FL-Hook version for FL-Memories
- adding "Terran" forces - (survivors from the nomad attack on earth)
