    How do you ''play'' Privateer - RF?

    In all other WC games this is the case, but not in Privateer, where the DF is the weakest (13 cm armor penetration) and the IR and FF both have the strongest (17 cm.) The FF is faster and is easier to use, as you said; I had to check the stats to make sure I was remembering correctly...

    Most memorable wc moment

    WC2: Destroying K'Tithrak Mang - I don't know why this mission was so hard for me; I play it now and I realize how much of a cinch it is, but back when I first played it I'd always get my torpedo track destroyed before getting off the second torp and I'd have to start all over... SO1: For...

    How do you ''play'' Privateer - RF?

    I always made sure I was friendly with the pirates - always accepted missions against Retros and Kilrathi, and when I did encounter the pirates I gave 'em the old #3 communique until they became friendly. To get them permanently on friendly disposition I'd knock off a few Merchant ships here...

    Looking for Freelancer mod!!

    Hello everyone; I don't know if there's a Freelancer discussion forum around here so I apologize if this is in the wrong place...but I'm trying to find a Freelancer mod that will allow me to play the storyline without level restrictions; that is, I can buy an Sunslayer torp launcer, Titan...

    98' Survivors

    I first came to this site in 1999, I think, and got hooked on the trivia questions. I joined the forum in 2001 but have only recently had time to actually post. First WC experience was summer of 1993 with WC2, then went back to complete WC1 thereafter...

    WC2 friendly capships invulnerable

    Yeah, I remember that mission, the rendez with the Sh'ar N'Tanya or something or another. It's only a handful of ships that this occurs with...but I guess PP has a good point about the story continuity, since it's kinda hard for Paladdin to eject from his Free Trader like the wingmen do.

    stuck on P3 nuclear streamer mission!!!

    Sheesh, is this guy for real? I thought it might simply be a sick joke; I mean let's face it...we've all dreamed of the possibilities of a Priv 3. But that's all it is--a dream, a fantasy....and looks to me like someone needs to head to the nearest bank and cash a reality check. Kinda...

    stuck on P3 nuclear streamer mission!!!

    Cute, very cute. Hate to break it to you, bud, but *THERE IS NO PRIVATEER 3.* But you probably already knew that. Something like this needs to be posted in the fan FICTON section. Can I get my 45 seconds back for reading this nonsense?

    Most shocking WC moment

    I don't really count any "post-credits" cinematics as easter eggs. To me, an easter egg is something clandestine you have to go out of your way to find. IMO the *closest* example of an EE in the WC games would probably be the unscripted pirate bases in P1, but even that's pale in comparison to...

    WC2 friendly capships invulnerable

    Quick comment... Has anyone ever played a version of WC2 where the friendly capships you are assigned to escort can actually be killed by enemy fire? This trait made the game much easier than in WC1, but I felt like a cheater when a ship I was supposed to protect (Paladin's Free Trader, for...

    Most shocking WC moment

    Yes, it was taken from WC3: Behind the Screens. Not the easter egg I was looking for, but as was stated before, you can't really expect too many of them in WC...

    Favorite fighter from WC3\4

    IMO the Bearcat's tracking is not that far off from the Excal, unless you are playing on Rookie mode, which further adjusts your shots. The gun placement was very different from the Centurion, however, since on the Bearcat the L. Tachyon cannons were bunched together with two on the left and...

    Favorite fighter from WC3\4

    IMO Seether's AI was perhaps the worst in WC, even on nightmare. I "hungered for a true challenge" and he left me famished... I was like (quote) Fight back! There is no honor is slaughter! Pah... you are hardly worth my fire! Yeah! You're nailed, pal - dump your cargo before ya blow! And...

    Favorite fighter from WC3\4

    I always turned off autotracking on my Bearcat. As far as "too powerful to require any skill" fighters, well....I always played on either Crazy or Nightmare, so a few missions at the end of the game with a monster ship was somewhat a reward to me.
