    Genesis - A new beginning




    DOWNLOAD GENESIS 1.0 HERE: Genesis 1.0 OSP download - Mod DB


    I said i wouldn't do another one, i really did. After my last project stalled due to me getting older and more forgetful, and adding things that i'd forgotten i'd added, in turn screwing everything up, i said no, no way, not again. Even took a break from the game... Time passed.

    So here we are again, only this time, i thought i'd wait until it's almost ready before i say anything. Starting with a nice fresh code base, i've removed every encounter and patrol path in the game and put new encounters and patrol paths in, ones that actually work and make sense. You will see correct factions docking where they should be docking and ships flying to where they should be flying and so on.

    Activated a number of unused vanilla factions and got missions working with all of them including the nomads.

    Added giant planets everywhere, and giant suns to try and give a sense of scale to the systems. Put back many missing items that were supposed to be in the code like the rings round the gas giants in New Tokyo etc.

    There are a few new factions like the Simian Trade Federation, Razids and others which will be familiar from other mods i've written.

    What sets this one apart are lots of unused effects that have been dormant since day one of Freelancer which now make an appearance as either weapons, engine, thruster or anything else i can think up.
