Also noticed that class 10 shields are way out of whack, 2 police ships in manhattan took out a class 10 shield in under 15 seconds granted they were star furys but jesus very under powered.

I am sorry for allt he confusion and bugs! I accidently uploaded the wrong version from my computer it was the OLD version and not the current one I have.

I will take a look at the bugs suggest and re-uploaded the new version.

Really sorry about this I was in a huge hurry on Friday and wasn't watching what I was doing.

Also I wanted to make sure people understood some things..

1: You will NO LONGER see animation for docking. That is part of the fix and WHY battleships can dock with bases without docking rings. If you remember large ships got stuck in the cinematics and would stay that way, so we removed the cinematics.

2: I cannot control the size of the blackholes they are hard coded. You people have been asking for them and now you don't like them? Be careful for what you ak for next time.

3: People say it is to easy, right now YES, no shield regen, NPC do not have the correct loadout, the mod is #$%# up right now!

4: As stated the mod I uploaded was about a week old. ALOT has been updated and problems ahve been fixed. I will upload a new version soon.

I've cut my vacation short so i can fix this thing.

Please do NOT download the patch. I need to talk this over with my team as I have NO IDEA what has been done.

Ok those of you that have downloaded the 1.1-1.2 patch how does it play now. I am at work and I am seriously bored. Nothing to do today. Feedback please!!!!

I just want to take a moment and say that you guys have done an excellent job, even with the bugs. I hate Freelancer and yet your mod actually gives me the impetus to play it. Don't let the bugs daunt you, even the best programmers have these issues and I for one don't expect you to get everything right on the first shot. Keep up the good work and I'll try the update when I get home tonight.

For all those having problems taking out the enemies shields in your starflier, I modified some stuff to make it so the enemy shields don't instantly recharge. Here's my unofficial patch:

Remember, this is not supported by Starfyre Productions. It is mostly their work, but with some modifications by me. Put this in the equipment folder in your data folder.

I will release an official patch today dealing with these issues. We want people to enjoy the game as much as possible.

Please use this to let us know of any more bugs.

As stated in the main thread please do not use hole's patch on our official server as it will make you and the server crash. His fix is good, but as he said he forgot about the MP part of it hehe, plesae only use it for SP.

No big worries though and we appreciate the help

Thanks for all the feedback all. Other members of the team have discovered bugs of their own so the patch is going to be delayed some as we implement addition fixes. There should be a release by tommorrow. Again I thank the people taking the time to play this and letting us know about the bugs.

Hello ppl. I love the TNG Mod but I need help. I am stuck on mission 12, every time I use the tractor beam, it goes straight to the desktop.
I also have downloaded the latest patch v1.3 but that did not help.

TNG Rocks...

That is because your old save-game is bugged. We can do nothing for old save-games.. Gonna hae to delete that one and start from an earlier save and hope that isn't bugged. Also what ship were you using. It might be a ship bug, but I doubt it.

Please keep in mind, gunboats, cruiser, and battleships were NEVER supposed to be played in SP. If you are using one of them the game itself might have a huge problem with it and there is nothing we can do about it right now.

A-wing, Thanx for the advise, I'll see if that will work

Post Wed Jul 02, 2003 8:44 pm

I've tested with ALL the light, medium and heavy fighters and I cannot reproduce this bug with detroit. Not once has my ship got stuck.

Also I've release a NEXUS PATCH which fixed problems relating to the nexus. plesae download it at

Installation instructions are the same as a regular patch.
