Hi guys, Xeltron245 here. I'm currently fronting a project called Freelancer Chronicles which has professional modellers working on it and various other members of staff. It's been made by Mak-Corp, a company that is also developing its own software in the simulation racing field. We will be looking for testers to help out as we develop Freelancer Chronicles. The aim is to make this the largest mod out there. We are planning to redevelop much of the GUI in Freelancer also to give it a fresh look. Textures will also be redone. Basically its a complete revamp of the original game. The website for the company is here:

www.mak-corp.net

The public forum for this project should be up later this afternoon although work has already been ongoing in secret now for about 4 months. Anyone who is interested in this project, please let me know on either the forums at Mak-Corp once the FLC forum is up or PM me here, post here. Thanks.

Did you buy the rights for Freelancer from Microsoft? Also if a company is involved it may sound like you are looking for people who work for free for you.

It's basically a massive mod. Mak-Corp do make their own software but started out as a mod group and haven't left that part of their development entirely. Sorry if I wasn't clear on that. We are changing a lot of things within Freelancer but essentially using the same base game. Any further questions please feel free to ask. Testers will not be paid no but I don't think mod teams generally do pay them unless I'm mistaken. We will be giving little bonuses to these testers on our server when the mod is finished though no doubt. The mod website is being developed at the moment and I will post that here when it is finished.

Yeah I guess there is not enough info yet. I was a little confused on how to interpret the intentions. If you all work for free on it, then it's the typical modding spirit and it is fine. "professional modellers" in connection with a company sounded quite commercial to me, hence the questions.

They are professional modellers because they also do work for money but they are doing this for free. But I call them professional modellers because they are normally. Luckily we have contacts that enable us to use them in this project too. The forums are now up on the MAK-Corp board with a few bits of basic information. Will be posting screenshots of the first designed ship later on which is way into its development.

Hey all.

I'm the founder of MAK-Corp. Its a pleasure to meet you all here. I just wanted to stop by and let you all know a bit about us.

We began as a mod group in the sim-racing genre with the aim to become a self-made game development company similar to Simbin, Blimey Games, Slightly Mad Studio's etc. With our commercial and modding success in the sim-racing genre now reaching quite high levels, we've wanted to expand the modding side to a new genre and help modders in that genre become more well known and even reach industry standards if that is their desire.

Freelancer Chronicles is a free mod project. As fans of the game the aim is to expand it with fresh new content, create all the original content in higher poly, update the graphics and provide fans of the game a whole new revamped version of the game.

Xeltron245 is heading the development of the project and will keep you all up to date with all the happenings. We also welcome any modders who are wanting to be a part of this project or who are looking to learn how they can become industry capable to get jobs in the industry. You can contact me at any time on our forum as I am on there every day.

The FL Chronicles website will open very soon as its having the final stuff being done to it to be released to public. We hope to provide a fun and enjoyable experience for all of you and hopefully we can revive Freelancer into new heights.

I look forward to getting to know the FL community and hope you will support our project.

Just don't be disappointed if there are just few players playing your mod, after you finished it in maybe 3 or more years.

Yes, we want to stay true to the original content which brought the fans to love this game as well. We don't just want to add better quality content and neglect the original so we decided to remodel all the original stuff from scratch to ensure everything is at the same quality and utilize all the new graphic enhancements also.

Essentially we are pushing the boundaries of Freelancer. A new nav map will be needed as we are adding far more systems than you could imagine, they've all been planned out which took me quite a while. That's so hopefully they will work well when they are released in terms of commodity trading etc. Lots of new factions too. New alien races, but essentially it will be well beyond what you would imagine in Freelancer. We have even managed to contact someone from the original development team of Freelancer to ask a few questions about the limits of it and believe me its exciting what we can actually do. If I tell you that the number of systems is larger than 3 figures that should give you an idea of the scale of this. Obviously it's going to be a project that will develop as time goes on and we will allow you guys to test it as we are working on it but you get the picture.

I certainly hope you can share the code that will be necessary to achieve just about all you are saying, because vanilla FL most certainly can't support that.
