I'm not quite familiar with mods to Freelancer. But i do know that there is a large and active multiplayer community on a mod called "Crossfire". They have hugely increased the universe and created a sequel story to the single player campaign that can be experienced on their servers:

And there is a Star Wars total conversion in progress:

Man, on writing this i got the impression i need to play Freelancer myself again ... Smile

Just looked at the Crossfire mod. It looks quite well done. I think I might look into it. Thanks again.

there is even a mod turning freespace 2 into wing commander privateer:

as far as a xenonaughts demo, i believe one is going to com out in may some time, though i could be wrong as i am not a developer (just a fan of tactical turn based games).

with xcom there are 2 different ones being made, one is turn based, the other is a fps.

the jagged alliance back in action demo i got off of steam had fog of war, though i wasn't too impressed, i guess if i played more and got used to how it is now it would be better, but something seems off, i have played real time tactical games (like altair's ufo: after* games) and they were fine.

Bumping this to inform that Xenonauts is doing a Kickstarter and they also released a demo build there. Estimated delivery date is October 2012, and they claim they can finish the game even without the kickstarter, though the kickstarter will allow them to add a few extra things (like suppression)

Hmmm, looks interesting. Might even back this one too, despite deciding that i'll skip KS projects since now there's too much chances of fraud.
