Originall posted by Lancer Solurus on the Universal Modding Forums. Found here.

This is a list of hacks I have found and also the ones that used to be listed on TLR.

These hacks expect you to have the FL version 1.1 (patched)

Below is all of the ones I found

Price Limit
001caee8 float - change to a5 d4 68 53 (999,999,999,999.0)

Max Money all integers max 7fffffff (2.1 bil) change to ff ff ff 7f

Tradelane speed all floats change to (10000.0) 00 40 1c 46, (20000.0) 00 40 9c 46

True Speed display up to 999 float change to 00 00 7a 44 (1000.0) first version

HUD speed fix
000d5936 0f85 to 90e9 Cruise
000d5984 7e to eb Tradelanes

Docking distance - comes in 2 parts - floats
1) How far away can you click on a base and select dock
2) Distance from dock when the docking sequence is actually initiated

1)0013f48c originally 10000.0
2)0018bdb4 originally 1000.0

Below this is information obtained by checking info from TLR post "Breaking the limits"

Full post from TLR below
-------- Visibility --------
3f in Freelancer.exe, 0x210530 = near plane of view frustum
0x210530 = 1.1

0x210534 = 1.1
20000f in Freelancer.exe, 0x1C8910 = max distance at which ships can be seen (even if LODranges specify a higher distance)

0x1D15B8 = 1.1

0xD3D6E = 1.1
3750f in content.dll, 0x591B6 = distance over which NPC spawning will ignore density cap in SP; as a general rule, make it 1.5 * NPC max spawn distance
0x58F46 = 1.1
(when searching for that I found a 3750f under 0x58F76 in the 1.1 content.dll, two rows down from 0x58F46. I don't know what it does, though)

0xD597A = 1.1
0x0F85->0x90E9 in Freelancer.exe, 0xD5936 = remove cruise speed display limit of 300 (in other words, change 0x0F85 to 0x90E9; this hack was found by someone else)

0x1D7E50 = 1.1
1.25f in Freelancer.exe, 0x1C9804 = multiplier for distance at which brackets around non-targeted ships in space will appear (1.25 = ~3km, 37.5 = ~93km, etc)
0x1C9804 = 1.1
3.0f in Freelancer.exe, 0x1D7964 = seconds between updates of the distances in the contact list
0x1D7964 = 1.1

999999999i in server.dll, 0x6EEF1 = maximum credits that a player can have in MP
(un-able to find precisely in 1.1 server.dll with my methods, however my testing with upping max cash on the 1.0 DLL caused players to have a chance of wrapping around to -1 credits, loosing all their cash)

EFT_EXPLOSION_LARGE (limited duration):
100f in Freelancer.exe, 0x212AF0 - on-screen radius of effects, affects size-on-screen-based cutoff (make larger to increase cutoff range)

Heh, didn't see this when I re-posted the Limit Breaking 101 topic from the days of old (I was surprised no-one posted any of this info yet). However, it is fair to mention that the topic mentioned contains a more up-to-date list as well as a link to a step-by-step, picture-guided tutorial.

Another note, the ones I found are for the original NoCD version with the 1.1 patch installed.
