From the Vanguard Federation, the cutting edge of gaming, VFF Productions presents the Antares Mod for Freelancer.
With the aid of the enigmatic group known only as The Order, Freelancer Pilot Edison Trent sent the Nomads away, enabling Mankind to win the Nomad War.
Fifty years later, the Nomads are back with a vengeance. Uncountable wave after wave of Nomad Battleships, supported by armadas of Nomad Gunboats and vast numbers of Nomad Fighters, have swept aside the once vaunted Fleets of the Inner Houses with appalling ease. In their wake is a trail of wrecked ships, vaporized bases, and entire continents crushed and burned, millions of lives lost and millions of citizens left homeless.
The enigmatic faction known as The Order has led a handful of survivors in a rag-tag fleet of the few surviving warships, every freighter, and every fighter that could be made space worthy, across a Nomad infested wasteland known as the Zeta Corridor to safety on uncharted worlds behind a mysterious ancient alien Hypergate.
The governments and corporations of the Four Inner Houses have put aside their differences for the moment to rebuild their industries and military strength in the apparent safety of the Antares Sector. In a move to force co-operation, The Order has made the Four Houses begin their rebuilding efforts in a strange system known as Novus Spes, which has four habitable planets in a harmonic equilateral orbit.
The two Houses of the Hispania, the Outcasts and the Corsairs, have both faired better than the Inner Houses in the aftermath of the opening salvo of the Second Nomad War. They too have begun building their infrastructure in the Antares Sector, as well as in their home systems in the Omicrons.
They have banded together under the banner of the Confederation Hispania, and they have an agenda of their own.
Opportunities for fame, adventure and wealth abound for daring Freelancer Pilots in this brave new world. Will you seek your fortune ferrying refugees across the Zetas, a dangerous stretch of space marked by such ominous trails of wreckage as The Trail of Tears and The Devils Corridor? Will you make your fortune by capitalizing on the rebuilding efforts of the House Corporations? Will you seek your fortune instead by flying mercenary missions deep in Nomad occupied space in the Sirius Sector? Or do you have plans of your own?
The Antares Mod has the unique feature of allowing players to make use of their hard earned millions of in-game credits by actually helping to shape the very star systems they play in. Build unique and distinctive bases, terraform planets and name them and choose their landscape. Wish you had better thrusters? Design new ones. Wish you had a more maneuverable fighter, a better freighter? Choose from hundreds for your bases and planets or help design new ones. Want more firepower? Design new missiles, guns, and torpedoes.
There are hundreds of ships to choose from, and with the unique ability to completely customize with different combinations of reactor type and size, engine design, thruster choice, armor and shields. Ever wish that you could arm your Patriot or Drake with Cannonball Missiles or Nomad Blasters? Now you can.
The sky is no longer the limit. The only limit is your own courage, determination, intuition and creativity.
The Vanguard 2 server requires the Antares Expansion MOD to be installed and running to connect and play on this server.
To run the Antares Expansion MOD you need to install the following files in the order listed.
The Microsoft Freelancer 1.1 patch
Freelancer Mod Manager
The Freelancer SDK 1.3 (installs to the Freelancer folder)
The Antares Expansion MOD File (107MB file) (installs to FLMM)
After installing all the above file/programs you will need to activate the MOD using FLMM and run Freelancer from there.
If you intend to be playing on both modded servers and unmodded server it is recommended that you use separate copies of freelancer for each to prevent accidental banning from FLMM not completely shutting down a MOD you were running and thought you turned off.
