TimeLancer is on the road: A little test mod

written by polarbear at Saturday, June 22nd 2013, 6:09pm

So I've been recently working on a little project of my own I like to call "TimeLancer". This is a storyline mod which is a direct sequal to the original storyline and it goes like this:

The year is 804 AS. For 3 years The Order has been researching the Nomad structure found in the Dyson sphere. New findings were discovered and The Order was amazed to find out the secret behind this thing they called "hypergate" that sucked in the Nomads in the final battle.
Orillion, along with The Order, planned a plan to use this in order to make the organization the most powerful between the terror organizations in Sirius. This is not simple, and therefore they need the most advanced pilots known. One of them would be Trent, and along with him King and Juni come too. The Order assembles all of their best pilots, as they already did before, to send them to the unknown frontier.

Now, what I release here is only a test version which contains the first mission-and-a-half (a and b). I want YOU, those who wanna test, to give me feedback about any bugs. Those of you who understand in mission scripts may also look for the error in it and tell me.
Also, I added a little poll for the feedback.

Freelancer Mod manager 1.3 or above.
1. Unrar the archive.
2. Copy the Timelancer folder to the "mods" folder in Freelancer Mod Manager's location.
3. Open the Freelancer Mod Manager and activate "TimeLancer: Tester's Edition".
4. Launch Freelancer.

Crossfire article in PC Games

written by SWAT_OP-R8R at Wednesday, June 19th 2013, 5:02pm

Yesterday I received a mail from the german PC Games magazine informing me that they have published an article which suggests alternatives to StarCitizen.
The development of the new Chris Roberts game will take quiet some time and the main question that this articles deals with is "what to play meanwhile?".

Top suggestion number one: Crossfire 1.9

Next to our Freelancer mod two other projects were presented; a Wing Commander fan project and a BGS mod based on the Freespace engine.
The article about Crossfire explains that this is not just a mod... "it is almost a new game". Showing the new features and even giving a step by step installation instruction this article covers what the Crossfire 1.9 mod has to offer very well and also mentions the upcoming Crossfire 2.0 mod.

Below you can find a link to the original article and the almost 7mins long video review which belongs to it.
Personally I think that it is great to know that people finally realize that the space sim genre is not dead and that there are good alternatives out there.
