Freelancer: The Nomad Legacy is the fan project about old good game Freelancer. We currently published new demo version. You can find download link at end of this post
New storyline campaign
The Nomad Legacy's story tells about the adventures of a new hero, who by complete chance happens to be called Trent.
Jump right into a variety of new story missions, inspired both by the original Freelancer game and its mysterious unreleased alpha version.
The new missions are designed in fashion with the original game's traditions Intense battles, new cutscenes, and a gameplay that feels spot-on.
If you liked the original game and you're looking for Freelancer 2 done right, The Nomad Legacy is right there for you to grab.
A world full of new opportunities
The Nomad Legacy's events take place in a completely new world, built with slightly different rules. This world is made with the same building blocks: stations and ships will look exactly the same, but updated to fit new logic and scale.
Try the improved station sabotage missions. Take part in side quests unrelated to the main story. Transport goods in the new courier missions. Take advantage of the new mining mechanics. Explore and study the world to maximize your ship's abilities!
A new way to improve your ship
The Nomad Legacy completely redesigned the equipment and weapon systems.
Weapons are no longer defined by classes. However, you can now improve your ship by completely replacing its internal parts! Engine, power plant, etc...
On top of that, your equipment will get bonuses depending on the type of your ship: Interceptor, Fighter, or Freighter. Build your ship to fit your style!
Our site was crashing a few times in the last weeks and we could identify a bad hard drive. The hard drive got replaced and we are up and running again - hopefully this was actually the reason for the crashes. Keep in mind we are already running on enterprise-class level hard drives so we cannot really improve this situation. But I guess our last HDD failure happened 3 years ago (wow time is running fast) so it's actually not too bad.
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.

Over the past several months since our demo release, FriendlyFire has been working on fine tuning our DX9 integration as well as adding a few extra components to make this mod look even better. The below video highlights these news additions: lens flare, improved dynamic lighting, reflection maps, distortion maps and our work in progress shadow mapping.

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 - Server games - FLHook full of plugins - Changed effects - Clan wide systems - Loads of added solars and stations - Clan and faction bonuses - EXE Installer - Automatic updater - Dedicated starter system - Dedicated PVP system (Top Gun) - Dedicated staff - + Loads more
