      New Features in version 0.75

      Many tweaks all over the place so many I cant remember them all. Be ready its going to be better then ever.

      Several changes have been made to accommodate the world of the TRADER: Cargo Capacity, Shields, and More. Dromedary & Humpback = 1200 Cargo.

      1.] New Lootable Nomad turret that works on all ships. Must kill a Nomad Gun Boat to get them. (One H*LL of an Entrepreneurial opportunity for the Go-Getter with vision. Collect them to sell to other players for their Freighters)

      2.] Regenerative Nomad Armor, (Loot-able) It regenerates so you do not have to use as many Nanobots.

      3.] New Nomad Countermeasures.

      4.] Cruise speed 500, flight speed is now 120.

      5.] All Turrets class 7 and above have 25% more damage with the same power usage as the gun.

      6.] Code weapon Turrets have been fixed to have the same range and velocity as the guns.

      7.] 3 new shields that are like the nomad shield except you can buy these at Planet Toledo. There are 3 classes: Light Fighter, Heavy/Very heavy Fighter, & Freighter.

      8.] All Player Freighter shields are 25% stronger and regenerate 25% faster except the new Hybrid shield.

      9.] All Player Freighters have 2x the Bots/Batts & 2x the cargo they once had making the max cargo now 1200 for the Humpback & Dromedary.

      10.] We have cap ship encounters back in the mod as well, with Battleships, Cruisers, Destroyers, and Gunboats. Factions with Cap ship Encounters are: All House Military, Nomads, and the Order. (Nomad Fleets do not have the Battleship)

      11.] The Navy fleets are now much more powerful and have much more armor now they also carry a Fleet Commander which is worth $10+ Million Credits.

      This mod has been updated twice since this post so, you may want to check out Freelancers Community for the info on the mod and download and join the server to test it out. I am there as I type and it’s not for the feint of heart. It’s a real challenge for any player of Freelancer.

      The latest mod version is, Freelancer Advanced v.0.75c. More information can be found here. Here, you will find Server information too.

      This mod was intended for running on his server but by request, he made a patch for it so it can be played as SP.

      Download the mod, join the server and have some fun. Admins and the rest of us are there to help but, nothing is cheap so, you’ll have to realy make an effort to succeed.

      Think you’re a Nomad Killer, not on your life, come take your shot at Nomads that get better as you do. All the AI gets better as you do. You’re the pawn, not the NPCs. 😆

      Do you have what it takes to out do the famous Edison Trent and save the Sirius Universe?

      Have fun and enjoy.

      If you run into St4rB|4st3r or any version of that spelling, holler and he can help you get set up, just tell him HK said to or else. 😮

      Just a quick note on the above mod.

      It has been updated and is not running on the server as of this post but, you can still play it in SP. The new mod FLADV v0.76c is the mod on the server now.

      Since I don’t really have the permission to post it in the DL section, I can only advise that anyone wanting to try it out can go to his forum/website and get the mod form there. No actual registration is required but, it’s nice to have new members on the forum and thier views about the mod and/or report any ingame bugs they may find that others may have over-looked. General chat is always welcome too. 😎

      Hmm you don’t have access to upload. I will look into that today or this evening I thought I gave sufficient permissions to upload to all users. Granted you have to be logged in to upload, but I will check this today. Thanks for the heads up and that probably slipped through on my rebuild of the site.

      That mod has since been update to the v 0.77 but now, he has taken it down to do a completely new version with many new upgrades and ideals. However, you can get the latest version by going to his forum and downloading it and play it in SP to get the feel of an FlyByU type mod. Be careful though, the AI is very enhanced.

      I think this will this you to it:

      FLADV v 0.77

      It will. I double checked the link and it works.

      2.) Nomad Weapons 8% more powerful and take 15% less energy per shot.

      All nomad weapons have been redone they are much better now. (To test this, just pick a fight with a few of them. Hee Hee)

      3.) All Energy missiles use 15% less energy per shot.

      4.) Made a new Energy Mine. A very powerful mine to have on your side.

      5.) Redone, is the reputation of Nomads, so this time the Nomads stay hostile.

      6.) 7 new Nomad wrecks in 6 Nomad Infested Systems with surprises on them, and 12 other new wrecks in the other NPC systems. You will have to find them on your own. That is a total of 19 new wrecks have been placed, and one additional Nomad* system opened up to hide the best one in. (In addition, some Vanilla Wrecks have had some Weapons or Commodities changed or increased)

      7.) A new System is open, the Nomad Home World system, moreover, it is very populated, to put it mildly. (If you enjoy fighting Nomads, this system has got to be your target destination)

      8.) Made several equipment items drop rates better

      9.) Fast Docking

      10.)Max Missiles, Mines, and CM’s is 120

      11.) Nine new pieces of equipment: Shield Generators. They increase the regeneration rate of shields. (The first time you Mount, one of these Puppies, You WILL want to come back for more)

      Many things that were great, about v0.73, have been retained in v0.74:

      1. CM’s and Energy Missiles do not use Ammo. (Simply Turn Them On) or continue to Launch them with your favorite buttons of choice.

      2. Ships, Weapons, Missiles, Mines, CM’s, and Equipment can be bought at any level or reputation. If you can land on a base you can buy whatever you like if you have the credits for it.

      3. Beefed up all ships by 2x the Armor, Botts/Batts. 2 x the Cargo and all ships. The Dromedary/Humpback are now the best Freighter. Fixed the info cards to show the right info for all ships.

      4. Adjusted the system lighting to make it more comfortable and bring out the textures in Bases and ships.

      5. Added some of the equipment that was put in the game but not buyable. Added, loot-able/buyable, Scanners (5) and tractor beam, Nomad, and Order thrusters etc.

      6. All factions have loot-able pilots.

      7. Added many new Jump holes.

      8. The Order Weapons have leveled up and have the power usage increased accordingly Class 5 6 & 10 available now.

      9. Adjusted Weapons such as the Missiles to do more damage and hit a lot more often

      10 Add more damage to mines and increased there speed to 160 and 180 for the seeker mines

      11. Adjusted the performance of the torpedoes, and Cruise Disrupters

      (Mines, Missiles, Cruise Disrupters track targets like they have Magnets in the Nose now)

      12. Guns, Missiles, and Ammo has no level or reputation requirement on it so if you find a weapon or loot a weapon you will be able to buy ammo for it at anytime as well as buy it anytime as long as you have the credits for it.

      13. All ships have improved handling. They all turn pretty quick now including freighters

      14. Made NPC shields loot-able. These shields are not the player shields. They only regenerate at 5 point per sec so are useless to the player but can be sold (Do not make the mistake of mounting one of these just because it is a Class 10, and you have only a Class 5. You WILL be sorry. Sell it as suggested.)

      15. Shipyards are very important now. You can only buy Scanners, Tractor Beams, and Thrusters there.

      16. Higher paying missions over 2 million now

      17. Shipyards are very important now. Scanners, Tractor Beams, and Thrusters can only be bought at Shipyards. (These items are not for sale at other locations) Shipyards also sell Armor and Power Plant Up-Grades, 10 of each to set your ships up your way.

      PVP is now allowed in all outer world system all House & Independent systems are PVP free!

      *DO expect to have a fun time for this mod. It is for those who want to kill a lot of NPC’s, and enjoy engaging PVP with your friends or enemies.*

      Darkone thank you for your post and interest in this mod…

      Thanks HK for the kind words. If you want to add this to your Downloads section go right ahead. I am planning on a new version to be out when I get enough feed back collected and figure out where we need to go next also try to keep it fun as well.

      Just drop a note when it is available and I will gladly upload it to the download area. When I get some spare time 🙂 I wanted to update the FL area with all the mods. I generally concentrate on SP mods because they can be played forever when the MP mods can only be played as long as there is a server hosting that mod. I wish all FL mods were both SP/MP then that would be even better 🙂

      The FLAdv mod is open Single player as well. Anything you can do in MP you can do I SP. I agree with you about the servers, so if there is no server you can still play it in SP and not miss anything from MP except other people. When the server is down for a time such as bad weather etc… Or hardware problems most of the players there just play it in SP for there daily fix 😉

      FlyByU, I think that you will find that a common search here is for expanded storyline missions (primarily for SP play). MP is great, but there are times when SP with new missions is even greater. I believe that is why the download statistics for many mods shows 100 to 1,000 times more downloads than there are MP players… because there is a “silent majority” of Freelancer SP players. They don’t hang out on the forums or attend server events, but there are a lot of them/us, and they still play Freelancer and enjoy the mods.

      Many of us have played BigDaddy Storyline simply because it says “storyline” in the title. 🙂 And I understand that Trent, The Monkey King (TTMK) is based on BigDaddy!

      I know that most mods are created for the MP crowd, usually by MP players, and that the motivation for creating most mods is MP-oriented. I also understand the issues around creating new cut scenes… it is nearly impossible without getting our hands on the tools that Digital Anvil used to create them.

      However, a good compromise is the idea of using Rumors/News/Hidden Objects to create a continued story. The “Prelude to Freeport 7” and Mission 14 in Trent, The Monkey King (TTMK) are good examples, as are Crossfire’s “Quests”. OpenSP is fine for the job.

      So, in the “Feedback Department”, my vote is for extending the storyline through continued missions presented by Rumors/News/Hidden objects. Your ship upgrades are classics, so carry on with that. Your NPCs are legendary, so keep that up. New ships, systems, textures, and FX are all fun, but the key to making the next mind-blowing Freelancer mod is in the story.

      Features in FlyByU Freelancer Server Mod v0.78

      Just to let you know, this mod has been updated recently and FBU has his server running it once again. FBU took some time away from modding for the past year and closed the server due to the lack of players. That’s a shame too because, the mod is fast, fun and exciting to me to say the least. The challenges are there if you wish to experience them.

      It’s not a mandatory RP server but, that’s left up to you. As long as the tags aren’t offensive, he doesn’t care about anyone using them. ie; [FU]Clan, etc…etc…

      Some see the prices of the equipment and feel it’s too much to try and earn enough to purchase them but, that’s not so. It’s not all that hard to come up. Persistence is the key and it’s not going to be a, ‘Walk in the park’ sort of game play to start out with. After about 3-5 hours of game play, you should be on your way at being able to purchase the Elite equipment in order to go in the Nomad systems and hunt them to no end. They aren’t easy, even then.

      SP will be much harder than MP for the fact that, you only have one character to use unless, you create Save Games and the like in order to purchase different ships. With the MP, server-side, you can have more than one char and share or, store certain equipment you gain throughout your game play to be able to switch out, weapons, equipment and the like to other characters or, to your main character and/or to aid in helping new players if that’s what you like to do?

      If you’re looking to jump on the server and within 15 minutes ba able to buy battleships to look important and pawn others with, forget it because, there are none. It’s basic Freelancer greatly advanced, however, the freighters have all been upgraded and can be very deadly. All ships have been upgraded to be able to mount any equipment, providing you have the credits to purchase them. Just think, you can have one heck of a Starflier if you want it to be. Keep in mind that balance is there even though all is upgradable to class 10 equipment. Light fighters cannot mount HF/VHF Shields but, Light Fighters do have their own Class 10 equipment and can still mount everything else that any HF/VHF can mount for use in battle.

      So, if you want to spend some time on a not so Sirius MP/RP server and enjoy the upgrades and game play of the Original game in both, SP & MP, click on the link below and enjoy. The server runs smooth and no CTD’s or, Crashes. However, those from abroad may suffer a bit of lag depending on your location and ISP and that generally comes with online gaming in Freelancer as I experience the same when I’m playing on servers abroad. The ships do fly incredibly well.

      Heck, don’t take my word for it, dl the mod, hop in the server and find out for yourself.

      36.) Nine new pieces of equipment: Shield Generators. They increase the regeneration rate of shields. (The first time you Mount, one of these Puppies, You WILL want to come back for more)

      37.] CM’s and Energy Missiles do not use Ammo. (Simply Turn Them On) or continue to Launch them with your favorite buttons of choice.

      38.] Ships, Weapons, Missiles, Mines, CM’s, and Equipment can be bought at any level or reputation. If you can land on a base you can buy whatever you like if you have the credits for it.

      39.] Beefed up all ships by 2x the Armor, Botts/Batts. 2 x the Cargo and all ships. The Dromedary/Humpback are now the best Freighter. Fixed the info cards to show the right info for all ships.

      40.] Adjusted the system lighting to make it more comfortable and bring out the textures in Bases and ships.

      41.] Added some of the equipment that was put in the game but not buyable. Added, loot-able/buyable, Scanners (5) and tractor beam, Nomad, and Order thrusters etc.

      42.] All factions have loot-able pilots.

      43.] Added many new Jump holes.

      44.] Adjusted Weapons such as the Missiles to do more damage and hit a lot more often

      45.] Add more damage to mines and increased there speed to 160 and 180 for the seeker mines

      46.] Adjusted the performance of the torpedoes, and Cruise Disrupters

      (Mines, Missiles, Cruise Disrupters track targets like they have Magnets in the Nose now)

      47.] Guns, Missiles, and Ammo has no level or reputation requirement on it so if you find a weapon or loot a weapon you will be able to buy ammo for it at anytime as well as buy it anytime as long as you have the credits for it.

      48.] All ships have improved handling. They all turn pretty quick now including freighters

      49.] Made NPC shields loot-able. These shields are not the player shields. They only regenerate at 5 point per sec so are useless to the player but can be sold (Do not make the mistake of mounting one of these just because it is a Class 10, and you have only a Class 5. You WILL be . Sell it as suggested.)

      50.] Shipyards are very important now. You can only buy Power Plant Upgrades, Scanners, Tractor Beams, Armor, Shield Generator, Thrusters, etc… there.

      51.] Higher paying missions over 2 million now

      52.] All Commodities are 4x higher then Vanilla Freelancer some are even more .

      53.] Lights are now brighter and look very nice with the Real Space feature.

      54.] Weapons color has been tweaked they also look very nice with the Real Space feature.

      55.] NPC’s now take loot.

      56.] MP Start: – Ship = Patriot – $500,000 Credits – Armor – Shield Generator – CM – Guns: 1xShield Buster – 3xGuns – Class 1 Shield – 20 Bots/Batts. So you will have a nice start.

      57.] AI is Vanilla for all except Nomads, And Capship Fleets.

      58.] Fleet Commanders are worth over $25 million now.

      This Mod was created for any and all Players who LOVE playing Freelancer. Whether you Mine, Trade, Pirate, or Fight Pirates. All of the Basic areas of the Original Freelancer scheme have been addressed. For those who love Freelencer, and do not expect to get the best Ship, with the Best Shield, and the Best Weapons in the first TWO Hours of game play, then this mod is for you. As you work your way up to that Hammerhead, or Titan, or Dromedary, you will EARN each new piece of Equipment or up-grade that you get.

      Come test your skills on FlyByU’s server. He has worked hard to bring you the great feelings of vanilla Freelancer but with lots of new tweaks. Come out and enjoy this great mod. If you want to be in a clan check out the rules for starting a clan on FlyByU’s server and come out and have a blast with your clan. (Suggestion, Use your Clan Members to GANG UP on those Nomads)

      For Fierce Die Hard Freelancers, these Nomads will now give you a REAL Serious run for your money. If you are made of “The Right Stuff”, these bad boys are the ones that will help you find out what you are really made of!! Then after you prove yourself against the Nomads, step up and take on the ORDER next, HEE HEE HEE!!

      PVP is now allowed in all system however Liberty space is PVP free! PVP Rules will are posted on our forum under Server Rules, or just see them below.

      A PVP arena in Tohoku it is encased in rock asteroids and on the out side of that is a minefield. you will be able to use a J/H to get to it from New York. Tohoku is nothing but a PVP Arena now you can land on the Blood Dragon (it is neutral to all now) base there to buy Bots/Bats. It is all geared for PVP in that system.

      It’s been a while since I’ve visited here and it’s been a while since FlyByU has done any modding. However, he’s working on a new one for Freelancer now, taking one of his older mods and updating it. I’ll try to keep you up-to-date but, real life has me sort of trapped right now.

       

      You can fond out more about his progress, below.
