Community Revival: Any Interest?

So having been gone for the better part of a decade now, I’ve finally come back around to Freelancer. In the last few weeks I’ve been poking around the internet, and it does seem that there’s still a good degree of interest in this game (GOG, ModDB, Various Discord servers), even if there aren’t that many people playing it now.

I understand that there’s some pretty big technical and time-related hurdles to modernizing the Starport, although I’d love to see it active again, I think Freelancer’s glory days have been and gone, so it would probably be a pretty huge undertaking to even approach how things were.

Would anyone be interested in a bit of a community revival initiative? It would be pretty easy to get a centralised Discord server up for Freelancer and Freelancer modding-related things. I think there’s some fairly low-hanging fruit with regards to getting people engaged with the game and the community again.

What do you all think?

Count me in. there are active people out there but mostly in Discovery. But I think we can arrange something, like a global FL community in discord

Yeah, Discovery does seem to be the largest active community left, but there's lots of (very) little ones and a tiny modding scene still going. I feel like if you have a central point to get people around, it gives these places a chance to grow.

I'll see what I can get together a bit later today then! Will post the link here when I can.

I did reply to your DM by the way, but I have no idea if it got through! Seems like there might be some technical issues going on with them at the moment.

Well, I set up a Discord server. Need to think about how to organize things a bit, as well as fill out the resources and links pins. Does anyone have an up-to-date list of currently active Freelancer communities/servers?

For those interested, the Discord can be found here: https://discord.gg/8vZnZGF

I could put the discord link into the head bar of the FL Community network. I need to clean it up and update it to use https anyways.

That would be great! We've already got a small group of people together, any chance to grow it would be brilliant.

The FLCN bar doesn't seem to work on my install of Chrome though. It just appears to be static at the moment?
