I was kicking around with Freelancer, and found a mod over at Lancers Reactor called Flak 88 Mystic Drive, that seems pretty cool. One of the best things about this mod is that it allows you to use the NPC ships as wingmen.
I talked with Lifesaver and we decided to try it out on a new server, you can download the mod from the download section, check it out, it changes a lot in the game, and it is waay hard now. Its gonna take some getting used to, but I like what I see so far. Tell us what you think. I can't remember the IP to MwM's Server 2 but its real close to the IP to server 1. Right now there is only one other Server running this mod, so it might have a chance.
