Antares Mod: Freelancer Taken to a Whole New Dimension

The Antares Mod
(click for link to the home website of =VFF= Productions for the DL & instructions)
brought to you by the team of =VFF= Productions, Team Leader and original author Achilles of GrimAxe

You flew all the missions of SP as Edison Trent and ended the Nomad threat to Sirius...or so you thought. Fifty years after what is now known as the First Nomad War, the Nomads are back with a vengeance. Humanity is evacuating the planets and bases of the Sirius Sector and withdrawn to the newly discovered Antares Sector.

The 2nd Nomad War brings unique challenges and opportunities to Freelancers and Clans. Gone are most of the bases and tradelanes in the Inner House systems. A few bold Freelancers continue to smuggle refugees past the Nomad Fleet. Opportunities arise in the buildup of infrastructure safely for the moment hidden behind an ancient alien Hypergate in the recently discoverd Antares Sector.

The Antares Mod brings Freelancer into a whole new dimension, with new systems, new factions and bases, including player designed and built custom bases and planets. A dynamic new commodity system updated with each release of Antares Mod Updates allows great opportunities for trading...and for piracy.

The equipment is totally interchangeable, and players can order new weapons designs. Ever wish you could arm a patriot with code guns and nomad weapons? Now you can. Modular design allows players to customize thier ships with unique powerplant, reactor, thruster, armor, scanner, and tractor beam designs.

The Antares Mod features dozens of new systems, an improved physics engine, myriad new modular equipment options and scores of new ship designs ranging from screaming fast Light Fighters to heavily armed Torpedo Bomber Very Heavy Fighters, some with multiple CD/T Launchers, all the way to player flyable trains, gunboats, and capitol ships.

Clans and individual players can put thier hard-earned credits to use buying new planets and bases and ordering new ship,weapon and equipment designs.

The current direct connect IP for Vanguard 2 can be found here

Thanks to Nephilim and his Capital Ship Encounters Tutorial on Lancers Reactor that got me stared in modding.

Alcander is also due some thanks for the transferable engines and credit limit incress patches he created, keep up the good work Alcander.

Nebulae Wolf for the of the icons used for some of the new equipment.

Wyrmblight Dragonsbane for the new commodity icons, the opening splash screen, and the Universe map background.
Haunt for several new weapons.
Han Solo for his work on the Saskatchewan system and a few new toys to go with it.
CK, Poidrac, Scorch and the rest of the Vanguard Mod Team for their assistance, it would not have gotten done without all you guys.

Icon Pack v1.0 by Nebulae Wolf

Some of the new weapons were taken from the "Just For Fun MOD v 1.1" by Jim Rupp (Old Beowulf).
Of the following I atlered a few things to better fit the Antares Expansion MOD but left as much of Beowulf's work as I could.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mines and Countermeasuers:

Liberty Experimental Mine
Bretonia Pursuit Mine
Order Plasma Mine Mk1
Order Plasma Mine Mk2

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Missiles:
Javelin C Missile

The above 2 missiles use the standard ammo but mount on the cruise disruptor hardpoint.

Liberty Experimental Missile
Order Missile MK1-C (cruise disruptor mount)
Order Missile MK1 (class 9 gun hardpoint)
Order Missile Turret MK1 (class 9)
Order Missile MK2-C

Order EMP Missile Turret MK1 (class 9)
Nomad Torpedo
Nomad Cruise Disruptor
Dragoon Type 4 (Outcasts, class 7)
Dragoon Type 4 Turret (Outcasts, class 7)
Funny thing here. The Outcasts had class 6 and class 8 tachyon-based weapons, but no class 7, so I added them.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Guns and Turrets:

Death's Hand Mk IV (Order, class 8)

Re: Antares Mod: Freelancer Taken to a Whole New Dimension

Vanguard has moved to a new site, in order to upgrade to phbb3. If you have trouble logging in or registering, please bear with us. The main reason we upgraded was to escape the spambots, so Achilles upgraded the filters and registration.
Links updated in main post above 05/10/09.
Thanks,

I'd just like to say....

That all these years later....you guys still haven't given credit to the original author of this mod...you know the guy that created the Hunters Association Universe and created the original mod that you guys renamed and then took credit from him that did a helluva lot of ground work...

I mean, I'm just saying....begrudged or whatever, give credit where credit is due.....don't take credit for something you guys didn't originally create.
