It was a fairly small mod, that enabled you to go into a Nomad Dyson sphere. Afaik, the mod was made entirely from items available in the vanilla files.

The inside of the Dyson sphere was essentially a star system, with a very large floor built into it (some structure). Of course there were Nomads flying around. There was a dockable base in this, and the most remarkable was that when you docked at this base you didn't get to see Trent at a Deck, but your ship floating in the middle of a Sigma-like skysphere, yet with the menu bar that allowed you to go into different rooms as is normal at a base (and in those other rooms you also saw your ship in a smilar skysphere, rather than Trent in a room).

(I already asked for this, a while ago, but couldn't find the thread. Nobody back then remember it though, but maybe my description was less clear than this time.)

I didn't try it, but dyson city sounds promising.

It's built into the FLU mod for the 24/7 FREELANCER UNIVERSE server. I'm not completely happy with the entrance effects into the system but it works.

Thanks, but looking at the files I can tell this is not the mod that I', after. In that mod, docking at the Dyson City, brought you to what looked like the inside of a giant base, but what was technically a system.

Not sure; the Dyson City in the mod that I'm after, must have been about the size of an average vanilla planet on the outside. Inside, the only limit was the floor; the other directions were limitless. The floor was decorated with tiles, and some occasional tower-like structures. Nomads flew around in formation.

That *might* be it: the entrance to the city was technically (but did not look like) a jump gate / hole. I suppose the creator copied those kind of hardpoints, likely from a Nomad Gate, to the Dyson City archetype.
You don't know whether it is still going around somewhere as a standalone?

Btw the Dyson sphere itself was located in one of those Omega systems that are unavailable except in the storyline (Minor or Major).

Check out the FLU server, see if it's what you're looking for. If it is I can create a standalone mod that will add the system having the dyson sphere and the interior of the dyson sphere. The Dyson city is not dockable in this mod.
