I may wind up doing without a lot of things in order to buy a new system right from HP close to or, better than the one I had before. The only problem with that is the OS, I don't like W7 and want to keep it all XP. Ioncross uses XP only and I don't know enough about programming to use all these new Server Operating Programs they are coming out with on the TSP and other Freelancer sites. It's almost like they are trying to eliminate other servers from running to make everyone play only on their servers because, they are designing programs that only they know how to use and only those with their skills can understand on how to use them. I'm no brain with this new tech and Freelancer was made for all to be able to run a server for their on pleasure and enjoyment of it all.
No-one wants to spend the rest of their life playing on just a Vanilla Server when there's so much more to offer and that has been created for use in running servers. Sure, there are a lot of Vanilla Servers still up and running but, may of them have server side add-ons and those that don't, aren't very populated to say the least. I don't wish to run just a Vanilla Server, there's too much out there to enjoy but, they make it hard for simple operators such as myself to run them. Everyone seems to be personalizing them and not allowing others to use what they've created to enjoy it their way.
Idk, I think my days of playing Freelancer are certainly coming to an end. I've played this game since day one or before and once I run my own server, that was what my whole reason for playing Freelancer come to. Not always playing by someone elses rules or, playing the game the way they want me to play it, their way or, not at all. My server was for all to have fun and enjoy and the rules were simple, not complicated like they are on many servers today.
I guess that Freelancer will be coming to an end for me soon. I've enjoyed it but, I can't seem to enjoy it anymore.
