Hello,

It seems every few years I get the urge to play Freelancer and I always end up back in the Underverse.

I'm glad to see this server is still up and running so I can enjoy the work of the RIP team once again.

My interest in Freelancer tends to be short lived when it happens, so, as in the past, I will likely only be here for a short time.


I won't be joining any factions or anything. I just want to shoot up some NPCs, explore, get enough credits to check out some of the cool ships, and take on some of the challenges that the Underverse holds.

Speaking of challenges... those NPC battleship encounters are IMPOSSIBLE. lol

Well, impossible in a cruiser anyway (I'm flying the Purple Pyro at the moment). Has anyone ever defeated one of those groups single-handedly (perhaps in a battleship)? Or are they meant to be faced cooperatively in a group?


I noticed that the server is not automatically restarted every day like it used to be. I imagine there must be a good reason for this, but from the perspective of someone who is interested in looting wrecks, daily server restarts are nice.


Thanks for the Underverse RIP Team.

I never heard of anyone being able to defeat the NPC BS groups, as a team must sure be possible..

we had some server issues a while ago, since automatic reboot no longer works and DwnUndr does it manually when ever he gets a chance to do so

welcome back

I think Anthrax_Zombie and Mick have both claimed to wipe out an NPC Battlegroup. We have many flavors of them too.

Welcome back!

It is possible to take out those battleship groups single-handedly!

I just took out the one in Utopia in a Dreadnaught.

It took me two tries. The first time I targeted the battleship and they blew me up pretty quick. The second time I targeted the cruisers and fighters first instead of the battleship and that worked out better. It seems the cruisers/fighters do most of the damage (in that particular group anyway). The battleship itself, a Deadalus I believe, did little damage on its own, surprisingly.

The reward was pretty nice too: approximately 15 million credits in equipment and mineable goods, most of it in the latter.

I did launch a fair number of Big Kahuna torpedoes to get the job done though, so I actually probably just broke even. lol

Oh well, it was fun.


Edit: I tried again using no torpedoes and failed miserably. :(
