IONCROSS Total War is a multiplayer game created by modification of Microsoft's Freelancer game universe. You must have a legal copy of Microsoft Freelancer to play this game. It is not designed for single player use.

The game has taken over 18 months to complete and relies not only on sophisticated modification of the Freelancer universe, but on proprietary server programs that monitor game parameters, introduce dynamic change and enforce compliance with the game rules.

IONCROSS Total War (ICTW) is a battle for dominance between the forces of Liberty and Rheinland and you must choose to join either of these major factions or one of the two pirate clans that prey on them. The Ioncross Web site provides constantly updated statistics on the progress of the war. House scores, player performance data, rank ladder and player information are updated automatically.

If you wish to participate in ICTW you are welcome. However, before you make a decision to join, please read the information below to prevent any misconceptions.

The Universe is a dangerous place...
To survive in ICTW you need good flying skills, good aim and the ability to accept occasionally losing shields and sometimes pieces of equipment. Most importantly, you will need to work well in a team. Player vs. Player combat is possible in Total War, but will usually be avoided due to the consequences - damage or possible death.

You only have ONE character and dying is something to be avoided at all cost. Lose your life and you lose your ship - your cash and points will also be severely depleted. Die a few times and you cannot continue. You will need to delete your character and restart.

For a cautious player with average flying skills and the ability to learn, survival at the lower levels of the game is not hard, but it is unforgiving. We suggest you read this manual and scan the forums for tips to enhance your survival.

There are only 4 systems in IONCROSS Total war and there are no trade lanes. Cruise speed is faster than normal Freelancer, but ambushes are frequent, thrusters use fuel and everything uses cargo space. You will always need to be balancing the space taken up with your protection, against the free space needed to pick up valuable dropped objects.

Cheating is unfortunately common on FL servers. Cheating on this server will be automatically detected and penalties will be applied - which include removal from game and/or banning.
