Solurus Systems V1.174
September 28th, 2009

Created by Freelancer Fans

A sci-fi MOD containing many different universes combined into one. Systems are based mainly on the Star Trek universe, each race from the show are near their respective location in the galaxy.

This MOD is designed with role playing in mind. NPC reps only change for the NPC you shoot. This way a player can have a rep change done and it does not change for any new faction once set. Only the original factions can be changed since the files for them haven't changed.

113 New factions
143 Systems
351 ships
All gates unlocked
Many new commodities, quadruples the amount available
GPL based economy, you can have over $20,000,000,000,000,000 worth
All new graphics, icons, weapons & shields
Ship armor available for purchase
Scanners and tractor beams for sale
NPCs drop GPL, new commodities, engines and new power supplies
New high paying missions
Custom startup movie
Admin system, ship, thruster, weapons and shields
Cruise speed set to 1500
NPC cargo vessels heavily armored
All NPC and players ships rebalanced into 10 classes
All original ships upgraded to MOD standards
High speed tradelanes
New jumphole FX
Maximum credit limit increased to the game's maximum allowable amount - $2,147,483,647 (2.1 billion)
Most of the non-Freelancer ships were converted to Freelancer by our MOD team
New London, New Tokyo and New Berlin are full 3D systems with 40 to 50 bases in each

Additional thanks go to the admins who help keep out the cheaters and who keep the server running smoothly!

You can NOT uninstall Solurus Systems MOD at this time. You will have to reinstall Freelancer to get rid of it. This will be added at a later date.

It takes imagination and persistance to get this far, I hope I can make it to the end. This is a huge change from earlier versions, some things will just blow you away when you see it.Oh yeah, the AI will love to kill you the first chance they get and they aim alot better now.

Does anyone ever really read all of this? If so, let me know....

No infringment of copyright is intended. All copyrights belong to their respective authors.

Many of the converted ship models can be found at

If you are wondering why we used ships for a faction that is actually from another race (ex. Gorn ships for the Reavers), it was because we could not find any ships for those factions.
