Hi
I wondered if there is anyway I can transfer guns etc to another of my characters so they will effectively be stored?

Sure! The safest way is to log in a second acct and directly transfer.
If you drop in space and then switch characters, not only will nearby npcs scoop them up and run but sometimes they simply disappear.

Hi
Thx for the downloads but there is no transfer command available in the game using the FLAC commands,so how do I actually move guns
from one character to another??.

It is easiest if you have two computers. Simply have a pilot from each acct in space facing each other.
The alternative is something I have not done yet, maybe someone who has can fill you in. It involves opening a second user in your windows and a second instance of Freelancer. Then you tab back and forth. There was a player here who had 12 accts logged in for train runs on one computer hehe.

Hi
I played another Freelancer mod called "Shadow Of Fear" where you could store equipment in storage pods outside stations and pick it up later to sell or whatever...maybe The Underverse could benefit from this feature.

No need for multiple windows user accounts, if you have more than one account, just launch both accounts, UV supports multiple instances of freelancer on a single UA, all you have to do is alt+tab from one ship to the other and do it like a trade with another player

I'd like to add that, when dropping items in space like equipment and/or, weapons, you'll have to repair them. Radiated areas will eat them up.

Creating more than one user account is real easy and switching from one to another is, as well. Even if, you have a potato PC/Laptop around the house, you can install Freelancer on it and use that when needed to transfer your items. It doesn't take a high-tech PC or, video card, the on-board card will do to run Freelancer even more-so, just for transferring items.

I used to run 5 accounts on one PC and had 3 PCs going all at once with 54 ships. I could put one in several systems to keep an eye on everyone. I could have 15-20 ships or more, in game all at the same time. uv24

A good assistant tool called, Freelancer Account Manager is a lot of help, as well.

if you want to move equipment to a ship in the same account- find a stable gate with no NPC around
chat gates are good but most will work- put both ships at gate-
test by dropping a bot and a bat-switch ships and if a good place- they will be there for the other ship to loot
I recommend no more then 3 items at a time or they may drift before u can switch-a load of ammo or a bunch of the same cargo act as I item
each gun is a separate item -so are shields, etc
the gate acts as a focus point for u to keep ships close enough to switch- don't waste time tho there is a short period where the items will hold

that is weird, you should be able to launch another instance of FL. I guess your exe file is corrupt, I will PM you mine, this might also fix your chat problem

I wouldn't advise dropping any of your stuff in space unless, you're on one of the chat zones. NPCs will take them from you.
