I downloaded a mod for freelancer the other day called crossfire. It's practicaly doubled the size of the universe and many other things. Just wondering if any of the people here play it?

Hey! I used to play it!
Awesome graphics, terrible physics and terrible internet playing. I loved the game because of the cruising through the systems.
Reminded me of ELITE, best of space games of that kind. Elite had about 10.000 solar systems, back in '94.

Freelancer looked like an unfinished game.

Here are some links to ELITE:

Elite was the 1st 3D game, back in '84. I played it in 85. It was amazing!

Then i got hooked by the sequels:

It was, to date, the only game i saw where you could seamless take off from a planet, have mid air dog fights that would go on in outer space.
