Hi All,

I am a big fan of Freelancer and mods, and I am looking to have a go at modding the game myself - and possibly even developing a new modding application to help make it as easy as possible.

I know I should search the forums, but if anyone can give me a heads up on where to start in terms of understanding the architecture of the game and it's configuration files(ini files) and how they all relate - that would be great.

I want to understand how it all fits together before I start messing about - in the first instance I want to be able to create my own star systems with planets, bases, trade lanes, zones, patrol paths and the like - but using the existing factions.

Try the wiki, and look at the tools thread in the forum.

Have a look at the Zip I've attached it covers a lot of FL modding topics but around page 44 Giskards system building from scratch is a good start for someone new to modding (it was for me!)
