Note: All of these mods require the Freelancer Mod Manager to be installed prior to installation. Once downloaded, just run the .flmod file and it'll automagically install itself. You can then use FLMM to activate and play.

If you encounter errors upon starting a new game, you probably have existing saved games that are conflicting with the mod. Go to My Documents/My Games/Freelancer and move or delete the OriginalSavedGames folder.

The Wing Commander Freelancer Ship Pack v. 2.2 was released at the beginning of January 2006. It replaces ships, weapons and equipment, keeping the Freelancer universe (and storyline) intact. Grab it here.

In January 2005, Privateer: The Reckoning OpenSP version 4.65 was released. This was the final major playable release before team leader warzog left the project due to health and computer problems.

Welcome to the weblog for Privateer: The Reckoning. Here you will find all the latest updates and information to get you up to speed on the premiere Wing Commander/Privateer mod for Microsoft Freelancer.

Reckoning started out as a simple project to replace several of the ships from Freelancer with Wing Commander ones ... but it quickly became much, much more. And by "quickly" I mean quickly ... the mod was already in progress before the game had been out one month. Granted, there were mods made using the Freelancer demo that were released before the actual game was, but I'm particularly proud of Reckoning because it sprang up totally spontaniously from a three-paragraph post on the LancersReactor message board with the goofy name "Wing Commander Privateer X-Mod" to become one of the monoliths of the Freelancer mod library. There was very few deliberate planning, especially in those wild early days - Reckoning has been blessed from the start with the very best talent of the Wing Commander and Freelancer communities.
