Crossfire 2.0

  • One of the biggest tasks this year will be the creation of Crossfire version 2.0... as Crossfire has developed to a true sequel to Freelancer and will reach the campaigns end with version 2.0 the mod will run under the working title "Freelancer 2: Crossfire". Nothing will fit better.
    The sub-title for this version is "Last Stand" as the last story chapter is about ending the galactic conflict in either a good or bad way.
    In other words the Crossfire 2.0 storyline has more than just one ending.


    While up to version 1.7 I worked alone and later with a small team on CF1.8 and CF1.9 this will not be possible anymore as we simply dont have the time to get everything done with just a few people.
    The mod development has to done by the members of this community.
    I know that there are many modders out there which currently dont know what to do as their projects are not as popular, I know that we have tons of people which are very good graphic artists and I know what we have damn good writers lurking around here.
    I want Crossfire 2.0 to be a major overhaul of the current mod.
    Many things we did 2-3 years ago can be done better today.
    Many things our small team was not able to do due to the lack of time can get done if more people help.


    Better Graphics (textures + shaders), better infocards (less spelling errors and more content), more interesting systems (with sidequests and own stories), new features, new equipment, fixes,... and many new missions.
    With Crossfire 1.8 we made the game look good, with crossfire 1.9 we improved the gameplay.... and with Crossfire 2.0 we will make everything perfect.

    Only dead fish swim with the stream.
    Don't discuss with idiots. They only drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience there.


    This is ten percent luck,
    Twenty percent skill,
    Fifteen percent concentrated power of will,
    Five percent pleasure,
    Fifty percent pain,
    And a hundred percent reason to remember the name!

  • I can help with giving tons of ideas that can become a reality again. Also I can create and script missions that can also become a reality by the developers , but since the AI can't be altered, I guess only the ideas remain. Anyway, when you start receiving ideas from the players , you can let us know in here.

  • I have no specialisation or coding skills, but I offer my help where will be needed.

  • dunno
    and very likely we will not be allowed to use their stuff (eventhough it could look much better with CF)

  • If there is something I can help - just tell.


    I think many of the people here already know the most of what I can do and what I can't.

    Now, Freelancer can get named as a high ranked game... more than just one ending ^^





    At the people who were gathering data about wrong infocards and so, now it's the moment to send them to OP ;)
    If the wrong infocard are also fixed by you, even better !

  • the work can be done by the community and posted on the forums


    e.g. if someone wants to change a texture he/she can edit it... make a screenshot and upload it to the dev form
    if it looks cool then we will use it in the mod


    same happens with infocards and any other material created by this community



    for 2012 I also intent to switch to a new server hardware
    I already have something in mind which would increase the performance by +30% at about the same costs we have atm
    this + the new Lag Reduction Kit that i will build in the next weeks will for sure help increasing the number of players


    Huor already has started the work on some new FLhook features (RP features) and improvements on other features which also will improve the performance.



    except a few RP features (such as the ship restriction to specific licences or repuations or the Reputation adjustments based on the licences) meanwhile everything has been activated
    there are still some issues remaining which crash the server but that does not happen often anymore and we will get that fixed soon




    the dx9 support is something we will be working on

  • cool OP.. I'm glad that the game will have 2 endings now.... Congrats on the current work :P


  • Great news man, and these news are very nice gift for Julian Christmas evening.
    Thx 8).

  • i forgot to mention one thing
    the server switch can only happen under some conditions:
    I need to be able to get out of the current contract (which in my eyes is possible)
    the timing for the transfer of tiles has to fit
    and we need to be able to release a new launcher version which is actually the tricky part since only hägar has the sources
