I tried it. Way too much time spent moving between places, very boring.

its called exploring, to keep you in the game. If you find exploring boring. Try a rubbish server that lets you get 2 bill in a second and lets you fly every ship in less than an hour.

ppl put days/months into mods for your enjoyment and pay a load for the servers!

I like to explore but there was nothing between stations or planets of interest or at least I didnt find anything.

Hi Mr Warzog,

I hope that you are preparing a new version of privateer for us.

The 4.65 is very promising and it's a favorite part of my mods. I was too young to play privateer (the original) at the time.

Thanks for your work, I have an idea of the environment and magic that this game to be exerted on those which played. Thank you again !

...And sorry for my poor english. (Hope you understand me :-) )

I am a bit of a privateer fan.. I play privateer .. the original, privateer 2, and many remake versions as well as your fl versions. I enjoy all your attention to detail but find your economy a bit lacking..Im not here to cast stones but balancing your commodites for trading should be as important as making sure you have a Mason blaster...grain as well as rations should be more expensive on New Detroit than on an agricultural planet like Edom, textiles should be more expensive where they are not manufactured. also .. where are your trade missions.. where is the trade guild... do you test for trading options...obviously not.. I cant make a thin dime off of trading in your game.. look... anyone can play nintendo space invaders where you kill everything that shows up and steal the contents.. they call that murder for the prophet motive.. What were the comments of many reviews written about Freelancer.. It doesn't have viable trading missions, like the original privateer and or Elite. So now we just look like privateer? We don't want to bother with actual content do we.. thats a lot of work! I understand.. perhaps its just to much for you...your work on The Reckoning so far has been amazing... I love the Rightious Fire clip and its still one of my favs. Recommendations:
start with the privateer clip.
start in the troy system.. balance the pricing to favor agri busness, food stocks, and wood on helen and ingots of Iron and tungsten on Hector and Achiles. there should be one or two floating missions for food resupply from helen to the mining concerns.
Limit pirate, retro and Kilrathi activity in troy and the strengths of their ships. This will allow the Privateer time to develop a survivable strategy,and aquire a few needed upgrades.
Perhaps you just need a little direction..."Don't speak to me of your toys Grandson, tell me how you are going to defeat the Humans"...
This might also help.. its the opening lines.. (might be a little off)
(Pirate)What is it Huh? Is it a smuggler far off the normal space lanes? Maybe a bad smuggler with some nice contraband, heh heh!!
(Burrows)Sorry boys I'm just a tourist with a fraged nav console, can someone tell me where I am?!?
(Pirate) Deep in trouble little tourist, prepare to be boarded!!
(Burrows)Not a chance pal, Prepare to go to hell!
Remember this guy "has just got a load of Cargo in the hold and a bunch of bills to pay at home! But protecting himself against bad guys can get expensive.. and he is on a budget!!

I used to play the Privateer series back in the days. Although I can no longer play Privateer, I can still play Privateer 2: The Darkening on my XP Pro system (there's a patch for Windows 95 that handles well, just Google Privateer 2 and it will provide several links to it).

Is there anyone out there trying to mod the Privateer 2 ships for Freelancer? I wouldn't mind seeing a Freij, Icarus, Gea transport, Danrik or even a Jincilla Skull flying around.

there was a privateer 2 mod in development but it was stopped due to low support

Where are the links that teach people how to create ships? I might give this a try.
