It has been nearly a decade since Igiss graced us with his posts of old on the overarching development of the mod. For the past three years we've been enamoured with spreadsheets and technicalities from the simple changes of base IFFs to system redesigns, that we seem to have forgotten exactly what it means to write for a roleplay environment. In this post we aim to correct that failing, by providing an inclusive overview of Discovery 4.91, Pyres of Remembrance.
The latest update to the Discovery Freelancer mod brings a sizable change to one of the longest standing mechanics in the game - the Armor Upgrade. The update also brings changes to the Battlecruiser class, a shift of focus from being an anti-battleship vessels into a anti-cruiser one.
Today the first update cycle patch 4.90 named "Retribution" has gone live on the Discovery Freelancer Roleplay Server with new lore additions, equipment, ships and balance changes.
The summer update focuses providing some updates to the owners of battleships. There are special depots spread around in the Canis and Inner Core sectors, once you loot them you will have to gain one of tree update parts, which will boost your battleship performance for either weapons, shields or engines.
