ok so was wondering because its been a very long time since I last played freelancer I remember a mod that I had installed that changed a lot of the trade/commodities side when playing in sp,i don't know if it was one of the big conversion mods but I just cant remember,what I do remember about it is that it gave a lot more commodities to trade including pirates whose ships you destroyed they could be tractor beamed in in their escape pods and then handed over for credits to whichever system they were wanted in also you could get like credit chip cards with varying amounts on from destroyed ships along with a whole lot of different commodities that werent in the vanilla game,if anybody has any idea would love to be pointed in the direction of where I could d/l it if it still exists,thx for reading this.

I spoke to my daughters B/F he’s quite a wizz with all things pc I showed him your link and he pretty much had freelancer up and running on his pc within minutes and that’s win 10 so thank you for your advice and the link,he’s going to ask a friend who might have a spare laptop that I can buy and he said he could set it up for me if I needed him too,the site he used for the d/l was called myabandonware.com so just need the laptop and I’m heading back into freelancer for the next few years

Thx for the replies I appreciate it,so from what you are saying does it mean it would run on a newer system but it needs to be on win 10,hopefully that’s what you mean I’ve not dabbled in pc stuff for quite a long time as I went over to the dark side...consoles

Ok so it’s been quite a few years since I last played freelancer and would like to know if anybody on here could tell me what would be the ideal laptop/pc specs to be able to play freelancer on today (2020) the laptop I used to play it on went to the scrappers a long time ago and I never got round to replacing it but lately I have been wanting to scratch this freelancer itch again and get back into it but from what I understand most modern laptop/pc specs won’t run it because of the OS,one review I looked at recommended a 12 yr old system so any advise on what would run it and where I could possibly buy it from would be appreciated,I might also be willing to look into one being custom made for the job if that is at all possible but again any advise welcome,I am in the UK so it would have to be from here obviously lol,also if this is not in the right thread I apologise,all advise greatfully recieved.

hey rasauul,thx for the advice i will have to try that and see what happens,i know i cant destroy them all,i already tried... anyway just to say your mod is cool i really liked the prequel part even though i lost my 6 odd mill creds.... i havent had any of the bugs you described yet and hope it stays that way... i would like to play the vanilla game with the new ships and cargo any idea how that could be done,ie;what files would need to be added to the vanilla file for them to work or would it have to be a whole new mod

I also tried a few times, the way it worked for me is to directly fly towards the base.


tried that more than a dozen times and he still gets killed within 5 secs so i dont really know what to do,its really annoying,its great they did an extra mission but at least you should have a chance of doing it...

ok so here is my problem,i have been playing trent the monkey king mod which is not bad and gives a new approach for the storyline,however when it comes to mission 14 involving tobias it seems to fall apart,the problem is you have to run with 2 fugitives who have info on tobias so you have to keep them alive,when you get to the chugoku jump hole and get through it it says you have to seek refuge at kyoto base but the problem is you are instantly attacked by about a dozen bounty hunters,i have tried and tried,you cant destroy them all and you cant run for the base because your fugitive is killed within about 5 secs,i kid you not,what the heck are you supposed to do,i am at a loss what to do,any help really appreciated....

If you don't mind delving into the game's code a bit, browse to your FLMM mods folder (usually C:\Program Files\Freelancer Mod Manager\mods\) and look for Rebalance's folder. Go in the DATA folder, then open Constants.ini. Under [EngineEquipConsts], look for CRUISING_SPEED and change it to whatever you prefer (300 is the default). Save the file, unload and reload the mod and you'll be set


hey FF, i tried what you said but there are 2 constant files both with different speeds,when i change the one it is and then exit i save but it says access is denied,have looked in properties but its not blocked or anything,do you have any idea why its doing this and how i can get around it,thx...

thx FF for the advice will have a go at doing that.... ,one other thing though one of the replies for this post said that SW WT was a good mod and also for SP but i registered on their site for the download and there is a post saying that it is NOT sp and can only be played on their server,can anyone clarify this and let me know if its changed or something else has happened,i read about it and it does sound like a good mod.

thanks for all the great info people at least i got a few choices now.... ,i have currently stopped playing the full rebalance mod because i just cant get past the dexter hovis race due to the ship cruise engine being to fast now... keep crashing into the rings and losing track so if anyone knows of a way around that it would be appreciated,in the meantime i am trying out the monkey king one which although isnt as good looking as discovery or full rebalnce is pretty cool for the prequel storyline,even though you end up losing millions of credits... ,i will be DL a couple more of your recommended mods to see how they play.

thx for the replies at least that gives me some stuff to think about,while im here i am playing the full rebalance mod but i just cant get past the dexter hovis race because the ship is too fast now at cruise and it means that you end up missing the rings,as anybody got any ideas on how to either get past it or cheat your way past it....

hey all,well i am new to this forum but not to the world of freelancer but i did not know about all the mods until quite recently,anyway my question is this,i would like to know which mod is the most stable and improved for freelancer that has an SP campaign(i dont really want to play on servers)i have tried discovery and yes it is brilliant but there is no SP storyline,i currently have installed the full rebalance mod and yes it too is great but it only goes through the same storyline,i would like the extras like all the cargo which i think is brilliant compared to the original stuff but it seems that every so often through the story it changes your ship and to be honest i wish it wouldnt do that because i would like the choice of if i change my ship,yes i know you can just buy another but that kinda defeats the object if you know what i mean,anyway any help or advice regarding a really good mod would be appreciated,thanks....
