Hi everyone

 

Im kinda new here....actully just registrated 5 mins ago, cuz im desperately looking for a game, and i think im in the right place.

I bet most of you used to be playing a lot with Freelancer, and more of you played it with friends via LAN. As we did with my friends. Me and my mate are looking for a game what is the same like FL, i mean: trading, pirating, freelancing, hanging out in space together and hunting down pirates.

I know, we should just reinstall the FL, but we were wondering, maybe there are some games, like clones of FL, what have got better graphics, engine, or even much more better than the great Freelancer (kinda impossible i know)

 

The keyword is the LAN or private servers. Cuz we do not wish to get to a crowded server like Eve, where 11 years old children are trolling everywhere in space.

I have seen the X3 series, what are the same like FL, but they got no multiplayer. So if one you would help us, to find our best solution, that"d be awesome.

Welcome to the forums HesusProctor

 

Don't know about new Lan games but it might be worth having another look at Freelancer as they are always improving it. http://spacesimcentral.com/ssc/forum/14-freelancer/

Hello and welcome.

Evochron Mercenary is a very good space sim that also features multiplayer servers. This might be your best alternative yet

Thanks for advices from all of you. I (we) checked the Discovery servers of Freelancer. Actually, Discovery RP. The roleplayer community made us enjoy it again. There are a lot of creative, and friendly guy there. It makes a new atmosphere to us as we are no longer playing it via Lan, but with almost 200 other people. 🙂

 

But, now i got some free time, so ill check out the Evochron Mercenary too.

 

Thanks again.
