hehe - you won't recognise it (well, you will, but ALOT has changed as well).........if i can sort all the bugs out of course. Its the bugs that come from me fixing other bugs that make me despair Am hoping we can get it going soonish, but as usual - gawd knows what might hold us up...........just small things can sometimes delay by a few days

Romanov, that's just what we need. Every other nation seems to be represented, so why not Russia. And Firebase's ship have the right look, they reminds me of both Mig 29 and Flanker. So now I'm wondering if the Scythe is in there somewhere. Anyways, after playing 1.27 for hours and hours again, I know that this is gonna be something special.

Gonna be loooooong weeks coming.

chips: thank you soooo much for the teaser.
the paladin....." the flying fish ". after all I refer to the vhf in 1.27 as "the whale"
DROOOOL for the romanov freighter! can't wait to play w/ it. does it have more than the dromedary? more guns/higher class guns,turrets/more cargo/better handling?
thank you panther.

If I'm not here accepting the things I cannot change, I'm off somewhere ranting and raving about not being God.

Great ideas chips!

Especially to create a new fraction!

But in my opinion, you should remove the red stars from the ships. No other Freelancer fraction has really excisting symbols on their ships.

Can´t await playing it.

Thanks for your work!

Best regards

I agree.

Hey Chips;
I like your 1.27 and 1.28 looks like it will be just as good. The only gripe I have is about the unavailability of the Champion shields for levels below 9. I play your mod along with Open SP. I have experianced crashes both to the desk top and to reboot, so I save game a lot. I think most of my problem was with back ground processes running. Anyway, very good work with Evolutions 1.27.

Romanov eh? Been playing Red Alert 2 again Chips?

Ive seen labels on all the ships, maybe not so dominant as Romanov's big red stars (but russia always has big red stars on their fighter planes) but at least 2 or maybe 3 places on any house freighter/fighter you can see the house's symbol, like Rheinland , theres a big plaque of the Rheinland flag on the sides of the Valkyrie

Post Thu Feb 26, 2004 2:39 pm


You are right , but the symbol on the Valkyrie is not so dominant and it is not the original symbol. And Liberty ships don´t have a big white star or Kursari ships don´t have big red sun (they have a small dragon). So I think, the House of Romanov should use a another and less dominant symbol (not the red star of the USSR).

I don´t like to fly a ship with such dominat house symbols (I´m a freelancer/privateer!).

But its my personal opinion!

Heya Chips, Real Life has been busy.

A new version of evolution. Cool. Looking forward to seeing it. Like the new fighters with the red star on them. Neat looking.

Thanks peeps - good to read comments - keeps me motivated when my mind wanders towards watching films again

Post Fri Feb 27, 2004 8:33 am

Hehe, so we have a hung jury thus far. Of all things I did't expect this to be controversial!

Until I can find the time to design a whole new line of ships the red star will have to remain I'm afraid. I wanted something distinctive that would let you know who they belong to while being uniform. When using ships that are not yours you are limited as to what you can do.

Firebase was kind enough to let use change the textures on his ships and I am happy enough to leave it at that.

But please, keep the feedback coming.

Will 1.28 conflict with 1.27? I really don't want to have to start up ANOTHER new game...

I'm making record time!
If only I had someplace to be...

Post Fri Feb 27, 2004 8:10 pm

1.28 is a whole new ball game from 1.27 I'm afraid. There is just too much new stuff in 1.28. If ever there was good reason to start a new game, that would have to be it.

Post Fri Feb 27, 2004 8:39 pm

@ Corsair. People are going to moan like heck over that - but i say play on with 1.27 if you don't like it! Personally - what would be the fun of starting the mod when its had so much changed? Why start with 100mil and decent ships - it has no challenge for you. At that point, you won't be playing the game, but just a tourist who wants to see the sights (new things) and then gets bored and leaves as there is no challenge. Am i the only person who used to build up a character, then start again? The fun was working my way to the top - not sitting there with nothing to do.....................

If people are against the change, then don't change - ask the admin to keep a 1.27 server running - cause then people have the choice - but for me, personally, if the reason you play FL is for challenge and a bit of exploration rather than just sitting top level with nothing to do.........then you will welcome a new start. one thing about evo - its harder.........but its not difficult to make money.
