Bob has settled into his summer estate and managed to recommission The Reckoning mod for Freelancer. Cargo hauling has been reworked and a number of ships have been tweaked since the last major release. Soon bases will be upgraded, and more diverse Wing Commander capital ships will begin to populate the Gemini Sector. Bob has also released a preview of the game's splash screen. Hopefully there should be some significant progress in the coming weeks.
You can find some in-game videos of the mod in action here.
