Hotmail / Outlook E-Mail Users The Starport News
Posted by w0dk4 on 2016/6/9 23:35:34 (557 reads)

Sadly, Hotmail/Outlook has classified our server as Spam and we cannot seem to resolve this since they do not provide any useful information. I reviewed if spam was actually sent out and I suspect some users simply flagged too many mails sent from us as spam/junk mail. We do not really send out a lot of mails so I suspect this came from users that had notification settings set up that alert them of new posts on some threads in our forums via e-mail.

In any way, if you use a related mail account, just send a private message to us admins and we can change your email-address to a new one which does not belong to Hotmail/Outlook. Also, it would be appreciated if you complain regarding this behavior at https://microsoft.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eaGsTr3R5C4tLCd

Everspace Alpha released! Space Sim News
Posted by w0dk4 on 2016/4/29 17:10:02 (844 reads)

If you have not heard about Everspace yet: it is a space (arcade) sim that plays very much like Freelancer. Check out the Alpha launch trailer:



It is still very much bare-bones and does not have a lot of content, but as a Freelancer fan it is surely worth to check out or keep in mind:

Arena Commander (Dogfighting Module) released Star Citizen News
Posted by w0dk4 on 2014/6/6 12:25:58 (3507 reads)

After many delays, finally the dogfighting module called "Arena Commander" for Star Citizen has been released.

The multiplayer part of the module will be rolled out based on your citizen number, so if you backed Star Citizen early, the higher are your chances to get in.



Also interesting is the Freelancer-style mouse aiming, where weapons follow your mouse cursor.
If you turn "Coupling" off (Caps Lock button), you will get something similar to "engine kill" in Freelancer, though it is more of a "lock velocity vector" right now.

Also, check out the Freelancer forum over at Star Citizen: https://forums.robertsspaceindustries. ... ies/starlancer-freelancer

Happy dogfighting!

DS9 Freelancer Server Freelancer Server News
Posted by starworlds on 2012/9/20 23:46:50 (8285 reads)

Hi all!

Ds9 has been around and running since 2003! We were with some of the first servers created and started adding to the game along time ago.

Now we are coming back with a rebuild! We are sticking with the Sci-Fi universe with ships from all your favourite shows + some wacky ones! But now we are working on the balance of the mod, bringing those prices down and adding some of the great FLHook options that have been added to other great servers!

We host server hunts and games on a weekly basis with our current player base and welcome you all to join, even if its for just that bit of fun.

The mod is under constant revision at the moment while our development team work on balancing the mod and building our RP story which we are hoping will bring all the sci-fi universes together for the first time, while creating a fantastic RP environment around it, and if you dont like RP then just come and have a look around.

This is not a Mod based on ANY other mod and we are working very hard to bring it back up to scratch with the FL community, so please come and support us, as every person added to our forum or server is a pat on the back for us

New clans who come on our server will receive 200 million credits to help them start up, plus we have a section on our forums with advice on how to start up your own clan and keep it going. Systems are rented by clans, who in turn can rent out bases to individual players who want their own base to reside in and pay rent monthly.

Below I will list some of the features we currently have, please check out our forum to see what we are working on! Hope to see you soon

Features:-
- 237+ Added ships
- Loads of added commodities
- Loads of added equipment
- 20+ new systems
