Halberd, Orca and HellHound (erm - Deerhoud) are all in 1.28 - its a 'teaser' that you saw

Yeah - dual thrusters = double drain - otherwise it would get really abused

OK, .......just wondering how much longer 'til the next Chips fix?
how much more longer will I have to jones for 1.28?

The raven's not bad. It kind of reminds me of a small romulan warbird from STNG. Can't wait for the next upgrade.

Okay - regarding the Griffon.

What is it about the griffon do you want it in the mod so bad. I need convincing here! Tell me why it is so great, and why it will fit If you can persuade me, then i ask for permission!

K, besides the 12 guns/turrets? ( and hopefully enough power to keep 'em running). it just looks dorky in a loveable stupid little brother kinda way. that and the orange/blue color scheme...nerdy. gotta like it. the cockpit w/ wraparound glass like the liberator is a nice touch.
here's a new suggestion. the Ataenus that was posted a while back. thruster drain needs fixing. annoying to zip up to 700 have your thrusters drain after 2 secs and wait norm regen time. up down, up down. and you could actually cover more distance at a steady thruster rate. its a very cool looking ship and rather balanced for the game it being a light fighter and all.
plus aliens in the cockpit. THERE'S a novel touch.

i hope you can help
i have downloaded evolutions mod 1.27 but i can not get FMM beta 9 to install the mod
both FMM and Frelancer have been re installed but i still can't get this mod to install into the mod manager
any info would be usefull

Post Fri Jan 16, 2004 10:21 am

FLMM you mean? Where did you download it from, it might be corrupt. Have you already downloaded the mod? DOuble click on it, and it should open, unless it says an error. If in doubt, go to my website (click pic in sig) and the too the downloads area. The mod is there.......and it isn't corrupt.

Cheers for that i'll try it

Post Sat Jan 17, 2004 3:46 pm

I have recently downloades evolutions 1.27 and i ahve all the patchs for it and when i get into the game (sp with opensp) and i try to look at wat the shops sell it quits automatically any suggestions???

Chips: K, on the griffon again, Ok, so I got a soft spot for the pregnant flying bat. that's kinda what it looks like. or as some wit looking over my shoulder said, 'ooohh! a spiky butt-plug!'. yes I have a variety of friends.
12 guns! DROOL!
If there was a ship to take the role of floating tank I think this would qualify, a V VHF.
another plug for the ataenus!
are some of the new ships more organic looking, smooth curves vs. angular slabs?
OH, for making missions go from one system to another, it occured to me, Hey, ask respawn, he had some in HU.
Oh, and the Testudo with a gunship engine and a gunship power supply and 9 nomad cruise disruptors, life is easy, just dont have any friendlys around , those missles don't discriminate unless they all can hit the target IF it's right in front of you in visual range.
god I love that freighter! needs lvl 7 turrets though.

Post Mon Jan 19, 2004 5:57 am

Well - if you try online which has patch = kick for that. Nomad cruise disruptors only mount on the CD spots now, amongst many other fixes that were to stop illegal mounting. Yes, i left some holes by accident, but they have been nicely plugged up now (there are still one or two) but those will be gone.

Mounting power supplies from Capships + transports means No thrust power at all. For ships that are NOT tanks - like 99% of fighters and freighters, this will result in certain death should you ever have to fight PvP or the some pirates.

Mounting their Engine might make you go aboiut 130, but online you will possibly be banned, but mainly will have to suffer the massive cruise time. 15 seconds is one long time to be waiting when being shot at. The differnece between 8 seconds to cruise and the extra 60 normal flying speed is so minimal that only around distances of 1.5k will you get any benefit, after that you would be better off with normal engines and the faster cruise time. Suprising how many think that they have an advantage with those engines/powerplants, any pilot could blast you out of the skys, and you cannot even think of running. With a thruster- you are truly dead.

Just to let you know

Also - don't go online unless you have the patch (not the nomad one, but the one in my downloads area) otherwise you will get kicked by the 1.1 microsoft patch, and possibly banned for illegal equipment mounting.

No prob, just letting ya know I've been having fun w/ it.
in playing online (which I havent yet) do I need micro's 1.1 patch as wellas yours?

Post Tue Jan 20, 2004 2:57 am

no - the microsoft patch is just for servers. It impairs your SP game if you have that only need my patch.
