What are the best Freelancer mods?

I finished the main quest about 2 months ago (I know - 5 years late) and played on for a few days, but leveling up alone wasn't very satisfying so I quit.

Today I got the urge to fire it up again (maybe the X3 thread helped) and check out mods. It was pretty overwhelming - there are hundreds out there.

Does anybody here still play the game? What are the most worthwhile mods?

Thanks - it would save me a ton of time trying out each individual one.

More about what freelancer mods
  1. I guess it all depends on what you are looking for in a mod.

    After a few playthroughs I got a mod that gave me a shadow vessel (bab 5) and an ultra blaster (basic wimpy gun with an absurd rate of fire) and just ripped through everything. But then, I enjoy that sort of thing immensely.

    I know there are a couple that flesh out the universe a bit more or change it entirely.

    I wish I could remember which mods I used specifically, but I had about 15 that I had loaded. I think one of them increased speed of all ships by double.
  2. There are some great mods out there for Freelancer.
    I remember one mod that added in X-wings from Star Wars and Vipers from BSG. You could even buy the absolutely huge mining ships and Destroyers.
    I'll look up the mod at home and post it back.

  4. the truth is its never been to late....
    ive been playing FL since 2003 n never get bored... :bounce:

    the main thing is before searching a mod make sure what kind of mod that u like and suits u....
    for me i got a list of good mod...

    Lists i've tried and thumbs up:
    - Discovery
    - TNG (The Next Generation)
    - Tekagi's Treasure()

    - monkey universe
    - freeworld
    - BSB(battle star galactica)
    - Star Wars
    - Re-Balanced
    - and many more....
    - try going here http://topsites.moddb.com/all/?game=81

    One Mod I'm Really Waiting for is the
    - Requiem
    - one of many type of total conversion(or maybe something stays..)
    - the preview news even gone to up to the magazine...
    try going to the development website
    http://mod.fastoldsleds.com/index.php
  5. I think I'm going to re-install and find some of those mods.....
  6. Are there any mods that make the game similar to the ones from the X-series (X3:TC or Reunion? I'd like to see some freedom and a bigger focus on economics. X3 lacks so much that Freelancer has in terms of atmosphere.

  11. wow... I hadn't played for years (dito) and had just reinstalled and am playing through with my son. I was awestruck again by this game; it's beauty and reality. My son said it left him feeling as though he was really experiencing what we were doing.

    So I was happy to find people still playing it, or, like me just picking it up again. I accidentally came across the idea of mods... now I'm hooked.

  13. my favourite is freelancer total war ioncross mod, high rate of pvp and major difficulty and danger not for the faint hearted but well worth a look if you are seeking a new challenge.

    you have to be a good pilot and stay sharp as the difficulty is far higher than any other mod I have played, in all honesty every other mod i have tried is too easy

    check it out

  14. Freelancer is the best space sim game EVER, I have played everything available - from X-Wing and TIE fighter to Freelancer, the X-series, Darkstar one, etc.
    However, every time play the main story (3 or 4 times)... so... can you recommend me some mods - both single player - with new story line, and/or multiplayer played on free server?

    Thank you :)
