Well, after finding this game sitting in my cd rack again, I popped it in and started playing The Next Generation mod 2.7.6 and I must say I still love this game as if it were totally new to me. Does anyone else play Freelancer, modded or not? I also remember hearing some rumors of another game coming up, Freelancer 2 I believe. Anyone got any more news on this?

If Freelancer 2 is coming out within this year or next, don't bother and wait for the sequel. If not then buy it, it's got decent graphics for when it was released and virtualy no FPS drops, ever. It's cheaper than X2 and even though it's graphics aren't as good, it has way better gameplay than X2. Freelancer's flight control system is genious and easy to learn and use. The AI is relatively simple but can prove challenging when decently armed. The SP storyline is a bit drawn out and you may find yourself going from system to system to system just to find out you need to go back to where you started which can get frustrating, but usualy this only happens about 4 times. MP is decent, but finding someone to play against/ with can take a while since every server has the entire Freelancer galaxy open and you can travel to any section thereof. Overall it's worth it, if the sequel isn't coming out soon

The Universe is insanely huge, but full of a lot of empty space =/. Easy flight systems, quest system aswell. Wish they would include a faction system =[

Maybe we'll get a mod soon that will give us some more goodies. Until then, I have The Next Generation :)

I played it and liked it. It pretty open with a ton of space to explore. I need to install it again and play it though.

I have freelancer. I play the FLrebalance mod with it, along with it's add-ons. It adds battleship encounters, large scale battles, and basic chaos. I haven't played the TNG mod, is it any good? Freelancer is really great, but I dont' think it ever got the credit it desrved. And fl2 will never be a possiblity. Microsoft doesn't see it as a game it's willing to publish.

Yeah TNG is very good, its got tons of ships from different mods all in one. If you end up getting it and play online I can recommend a good server to you.
