The S³ Experiment

The Starport Story Spotlight is a feature new to The Starport giving the talented writers amongst our servers some well deserved spotlight attention.

{mos_smf_discuss:Front News}

It's true... The Starport has been mentioned on as part of thier 'Will Your Games Run on Windows 7?' article.

The article reports that Freelancer will work on Windows 7 as long as patch 1.1 is installed and running.

This is an amazing achievement for The Starport and Freelancer both. It goes to show this game is not dead, we are still here and we are not going anywhere anytime soon.

For more information on Windows 7 and the tests carried out please read the article found here.

Once again, thanks to everyone here for keeping this wonderful game alive.

After a singificantly longer downtime than we expected, due to the fact that I had no admin CP access and because Apoc just seemed to disapear the Freelancer Black Dawn Forums are once again back up and running.

Users will have to re-register as the forums have been completely wiped.

The forum address is located here :

On a side note relating to Freelancer black dawn, it was the mods birthday a couple of weeks ago!


Sorry for the inconvience,

Mod of the Year Awards 2008 The Starport archive
Posted by Worfeh on 2009/1/19 14:21:25 (2385 reads)

Two weeks ago the mod of the year awards have started the 1st phase of the voting. Two of the 100 nominated Mods are the work of the Freelancer community. They belong to the 100 best mods worldwide and defended this position against thousands of other mods eventhough most of them are based on new modern game engines.

First Id like to thank all those which already voted for all the Freelancer mods out there (also for those which didnt manage to reach the Top100).

The nominated mods are:

Freeworlds: Tides of War


Crossfire (which also got a top100 position in 2007)

BSG MOD Trailer The Starport archive
Posted by Worfeh on 2009/1/11 18:11:51 (2626 reads)

Battlestar Galactica - Dawn of War

Human or Cylon. You choose ! Galactica - Dawn of War is a modification ( mod ) of the game Freelancer inspired by the hit TV series Battlestar Galactica. It runs exclusively on the BSG-Galactica Freelancer server.

It features a whole new galaxy based on the galactica story with new systems, new factions, new ships, new weapons and new commodities.

You choose to become a colony or cylon fighter in your viper or cylon raider, alternatively be a tactical pilot on board of the raptor or the heavy raider, and ultimately command your own battleship, a mighty battlestar or a dreadful basestar.

The fate of the second cylon war is in your hands.

Not a fan of Galactica ? There is more for you !
