What is NSU?

Nightstalker's Universe Mod has been in the works for 7 years, the mod itself has gone though many incarnations including being rewritten several times. The concept of NSU is to give SciFi junkies what they are looking for. There are several sections of the mod dedicated to different SciFi Shows such as, BSG, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Firefly, and Star Wars. There are several sections of the mod that come from different ideas I have come up with and each system is uniquely different with custom suns, starspheres, and a few planets. The Mod has a lot to offer for a wide range of players. At the start you are given 5 choices though the use of one way jump holes (one in ST, SW, B5, Nightstalker Space, Terran Alliance Space). There are also 4 unique Factions in the mod, including Rogue Asteroids, Comets, Derelicts (Moving wrecks), and monsters (They hurt too).

How and Where

How do you get a hold of the mod??
Go to Nightstalker's Universe 1.66 section on the Olympus Forums (Olympuscomplex.com) and the Shadow Work Studios site (http://z11.invisionfree.com/Shadow_Work_Studios ) and you'll find the link for the mod under the thread NSU Download 1-66 Final. It is also available here as well.

Where do you play this monster??
This mod runs on one server currently, This is a European Server so US players might have a high ping. The USA server is now live, you can get the IP right below this.

Server Forum:
Olympuscomplex.com

IP:
USA: 205.185.113.40
EU: olympuseu1.servegame.org

Who Runs the Servers??

The Olympus Freelancer Complex is lead by RJOtto (EU-1) + USA-1 ran by Nightstalker and is policed by the SAS (Server Admin Squad) to keep the place cheat free. The mod maker is me Nightstalker and I make it a point to play whenever I can so see you on the server.

Troubleshooting Install Problems

For this mod to work properly, you need a clean install of Freelancer with no patches, SDK, or anything to that effect. You will also need to delete the Freelancer folder under My Documents.

1. Program Files\Microsoft Games\Freelancer and delete the Freelancer folder (Make sure you copy your FL ID just in case it asks).
2. Go to documents and settings\My Documents\My Games\Freelancer and delete the Freelancer folder (Users\username\\My Documents\My Games\Freelancer under Vista and Windows 7)
3. Reinstall Freelancer, do not install the flpatch or SDK as these are not needed. IF you install these the mod will not like you
4. Redownload the mod (Might also be an incomplete download or a corrupted one). If you think it is good, just activate it in FLMM
5. Run the mod (It should work like a charm then).

The mod is very touchy about leftovers from other mods since just about everything has been recoded. This mod is not like other mods. There is however another way to go about this for advanced users.

1. After you install Freelancer before you do anything create a folder in Microsoft Games called FL_Bak (OR anything you like, I use Freelancer_Bak)
2. Create a new folder once again Freelancer NSU (Copy the untouched files into this directory) and copy all the files out of mod manager and paste them directly into it and say yes to when it asks to overwrite the files.

Effectively, you will have three folders in the Microsoft Game folder

Freelancer
Freelancer_Bak
Freelancer_NSU

3. Create a shortcut of Freelancer.exe from this directory "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Freelancer_NSU\freelancer.exe" -s184.105.208.200:2302 -solympuseu1.servegame.org:2302 (This will put both the USA server and EU server on the top of the global list)

You can only do this with non-scripted mods, some mods also contain scripts in the script.xml that house the flmm descriptions.

So people can get going here. Here are the links for the final version.
