Freelancer: Evolutions 1.28 Announcement Thread

Yes, thats right, I don't usually do this at all, erm, well, ever - but for once we are having a kind of 'teaser' or whatever you like to call it (brag thread).

So down below you will find some "teaser" posts about ships coming in. The rest is a suprise i am afraid

The sig is a "link" to website

All these ships are modeled by Panther X - who makes our ships for us

First up, Bretonia:

The Paladin Bretonian Very Heavy Fighter:

Next up:

The Orca Bounty Hunter Supreme Heavy Fighter (yes, alot heavier than normal

And Finally (for now):

The Serpentail Kusari Very Heavy Fighter

Next up - what we have here is a totally new house. This house has a history with it, and its a the house of Romanov.....

They have 4 systems, are linked off of Sigma 13, and are fairly sparse as they are only really just grabbing a foothold. They have pirates in the form of The Lane Hackers. They will give out missions against the lane hackers, fight the lane hackers, fight you if your rep is negative (so watch who your shooting!), and the lane hackers will give out missions against them. They have the Federation Forces, and Federation Shipping corporation.

However, here are a few ships that they fly. These ships were modeled by Firebase, and are available in his ship pack. Firebase gave us permission to include new textures that were created by Panther X for the ships, which you see below:

This is a brand new freighter designed by Panther for the house:

Their technology is slightly different, so all of thier ships mount dual thrusters.

The mod includes alot more than just ships, infact, ships are a minor part of this mod. Their is a whole new range of equipment and things. I would post it all up, but it will probs get stolen or cloned and released before us, as their is ALOT of work still to be done.

You can also play the current version 1.27 to get a feel for the mod and things now - see my website downloads area for the most up to date copy. I have yet to hear anything bad said about the mod

The sig link takes you to my site

Thanks for the Heads-up Chips, what's the ETA for the release?


Post Sat Feb 21, 2004 8:09 pm

WOW!!! Looks great. I mean great. The Paladin looks like an actual Freelancer ship, as opposed to many other ships in other mods. I'm really looking forward to this. @ Hengist, I emailed Chips a day ago. He says about 2 weeks.

I've been playing 1.27 for a while and can't wait for the 1.28. I know Chips and the team have been working massive overtime on this and have taken alot of input in. This mod is well worth the wait, and can't wait to explore that new house(love the name of it btw)

Shoot first, shoot straight, win always.

Post Sun Feb 22, 2004 4:17 am

Yeah, new house sounds good eh? We're just studying Russia at school. The reskin looks great too.

I can't wait to see the stats of that freighter.

@ chips, will there be a change in the starting ship?

Post Sun Feb 22, 2004 5:44 am

@Chips, i have been playing 1.27 and i congradulate you on this fine mod.

However in 1.28 will there be any change to the ship price?

"There cannot be peace in these times"

Post Sun Feb 22, 2004 9:39 am

lol - it depends in which way you mean ship price. The prices have increased quite a bit..........for capships.

New ships stats are done, but going through testing to balance - cause that is where they end up being balanced - after the testers have bashed them to hell and back, to see if they can "fill the role" so to speak

Post Sun Feb 22, 2004 7:25 pm

Chips i suggest that you get my latest pack here in tlr for the black specters corrected insignia, it will correct yours too.

if i may ask, you have VHF's in place for bretonia and kusari, wud there be one in line for Rheinland? I love their ships and im ridiculously stubborn when it comes to giving up the Valkyrie for a VHF.

Post Mon Feb 23, 2004 2:56 pm

The Rheinland VHF looks just like the valk, and the liberty one is Junis (converted) - so it looks like the defender, but bigger obviously.

Post Mon Feb 23, 2004 4:12 pm

first off i think that you should make a new Rheinland VHF, not that there's anything wrong with the one you have but it doesn't fit well with the rheinland ship scheme.
second i'm going to email you with screenshots of a bunch of ship models i made. if you like them, reply with a list of the ones you want and i'll send you the files

Post Mon Feb 23, 2004 4:54 pm

Thanks Luke - am always looking for more modelers By the way, that old ship has gone, its now a new model for the Rheinland VHF - not the freespace one. The freespace have died (ie, been removed)

Post Tue Feb 24, 2004 8:37 am
