Getting started all over again

Just dug out my Freelancer cds after a >3+ year hiatus... You know, there used to be some sort of sticky thread or FAQ on how to get mods running, but that doesn't seem to be the case now. I looked all over and the only FAQ here is the about the forums not mod.

What do I do to get started? I'm only gonna play LAN games with my friends. No online stuff.

1. I need a mod manager. FLMM? Is it still around, or is there something else? Where do I get it, is there a homepage where I could probably find a FAQ or something?
2. Is that all I need? Should I upgrade my game to v1.1? And what's this about a v1.4 patch? (saw that on google, but it linked to some download site, no description nothing)

The Lancersreactor front page is quite confusing. Clicked on downloads, logged in... and blam, it's just a dump of all the downloadable files. I figure there's got to be a better way of finding out than to just start randomly downloading things. So other than a mod manager what else do I need?

Re: Getting started all over again

The Mod Manager is FLMM is 1.3 at momment
also
EOA Patch QuickFix-v1.0c -- though some mods dont need this

and then you have to decide what you want in a Mod there are plenty out there
-- close to the original
or a complete rehash of everything
or somewhere in the middle
-- combat -- ship types -- scifi universe

Re: Getting started all over again

Thanks, that really helped!

Google turned up a bunch of stuff on FLMM, apparently 1.4 and 1.5 are out but not as stable as the version you recommended, guess I'm gonna get 1.3 then.

Also found a mention of the 1.0c quickfix patch @ <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://eoa.seriouszone.com/news.php">http://eoa.seriouszone.com/news.php</a><!-- m --> ... nice to know I don't have to worry about other patches. Alright, gonna use that after I install the game.

Decided to have a go at the Discovery mod. I hear their latest is still being beta-ed on their server (4.85). Gonna go with their last stable version (4.84) then.
