For some reason something in your system is changing the mod extensions.
Nothing has a file extension.
So something is changing the file name to from .zip.flmod

If you cant find out what is causing this such as your firewall to fix the problem
just rename your files.

Example if it's a mod right click on the file name and choose rename
then rename the mod to whatever the mod file name is
lets say the mod file name is
and after you download the file it comes out as
rename the file to

If you are just trying to extract (unzip) the files rename the file by deleting the .flmod extension so you are left with a zip file.
rename the file to
so now you just have a zip file and not a flmod file.

the .flmod extension tells the Freelancer Mod Manager to unzip the mod file to the Freelancer Mod Manager\mods folder...

If you're still confused post here and some smart character will help you out.

Anyone want to ride my horse?

Thank you very much for your informative reply . Much appreciated. I did as you said and renamed the files and everything is perfect

I don't know whether it is appropriate to ask it here but what is your favourite SP or Open single player mod ? I find the crossfire and Big daddy quite good but the AI is very strong

thanks once again
