Good, now you can believe it like the rest of us lol. It was cancelled, and forgotten, thankfully we will never see it on a console and that's a good thing.

We are annoyed at the fact that its getting more difficult to buy the game rather than to download it through some torrent sites.

Like, I can easily buy Darkstar One for 5€ and I'd get a brand new copy, but I have to pay 10€+ to get a used FL copy?

We could need a PR expert - But I am not sure if we could get it into a pc magazine anyways (a few of my tries failed but I am not such a PR pro such others...)

Or we retry gog.com - again...

i think diplomacy is the key. it is a good game so it won't fail on that. we have to advertise the game itself rather than the mods we've made. maybe, ofc, graphics improvements, such as highly detailed models, the retexture pack, the big huge effects pack and ofc the bloom fx and dx9 conversion. graphics is what the game fails at, not the story, not the gameplay. graphics make good 3d games old very fast while good 2d games stay good for multiple years, if someone remembers sierra's pharaoh and caesar. we have to show, that this anyway magnificent game has been improved up to date and can be compared with modern pc games in any category. that we mixed down in it our favorite scifi shows is irrelevant. for all the star trek and star wars stuff there are games enough and mods enough. this is not what the players are actually after. we started to make mods not because we wanted to play our favourites but to play our favourites with our favourite game.

I dont think we should promote rather the game than mods. IMO mods are the most healthy sign a game can offer.

If people always see new mods for FL at moddb, they are rather to give the game a go than if there are annoying "OMG this is the best game you gotta play it" phrases.

Maybe we should also try to use youtube and Xfire videos/live videos as game support as well...at least more than now.

One other point about moddb, it's not the ultimate site for mods for FL as some people seem to think. Don't get me wrong, i have three different mods on there myself and have had many downloads of my mods from there.

There are other sites where there are plenty of FL fans who download mods in more numbers than at moddb, Strategy Informer is one of these, i've had over double the downloads from there compared to moddb and i'm sure there are other sites which do the same.

@ NeXoSE

I'm not angry at anything or anyone. Regarding the FL2 thing, i know i wouldn't have bought it for the Xbox that's for sure due to the fact it would be impossible to mod. That and the fact i don't have an Xbox or any other console, think they are spawn of satan and they should all be destroyed immediately

Gibbon, you might be totally right about that site:
http://www.strategyinformer.com/pc/freelancer/

Just watch for the DL numbers at the bottom right corner - Might be worthy to advise your FL mods there more.

heh, i found strategyinformer even before moddb. likely i will upload mine on both once it reaches the needed state. its btw not going to take time in next year, i think autumn will it be or however 2010. also i will release a rendered trailer on youtube and windows live and give it to someone to upload on xfire, so, gentlemen, count me in in the advertisement scene
nevertheless, were all often annoyed by players who played only the mod without experiences on vanilla and then count the mod to be vanilla without the wish to try out another one to see what the game really has to offer. maybe it should not be advertising the own mod rather than an advertisement for the game and all it has to offer for players with special wishes.
