The UnderVerse 12.3, ninth release
by Team RIP
copyright 2007-2020

***This mod took a lot of work and shall not be copied or modified by anyone without our written permission***
If you are having trouble installing this mod, first save your player ID number, deactivate everything in FLMM, delete the entire Freelancer folder, and install a fresh copy. You do NOT need to add any patches (like the 1.1 patch, any SDK or the Quickfix). Also delete the contents of your \Accts\SinglePlayer folder as the restart.fl file contains information which is not compatible across different mods.
We have created tutorials as we built this mod. They can be found at No one else may host these tutorials, but feel free to pass the above url for your friends to find it.
If you use Vista, Win7 or Win 8, then you must install FLMM (Freelancer Mod Manager) as Administrator and run it as Administrator when you unpack and activate any mod or it will not work properly. It is best to install Freelancer somewhere other than in the Programs folder, like C:\Freelancer.

The UnderVerse Manual is your guide to the UnderVerse. Don't sell it! An Admin, called a ~Purifier~, will give you money for it once you have read it. Please visit our website at for a full description of each faction.

Now, onto the story!
Based on the Chronicles of Riddick, we take you slightly into the future from the end of the third movie. It is now 30 years since Riddick sat on the throne and became the Necromonger leader. One of the first things he did was to stop the advance of the fleet into more territories and had them fall back to home space. Then he freed all who remained from the truely demolished worlds, Furyans being the first. Once news of this surfaced, other non-purified survivors began returning to their home systems to start the slow process of re-population. Riddick himself disappeared 15 years ago, his whereabouts and fate unknown.
Now the houses are stirring again.
Now the war drums are sounding again.
Where will you be when it all starts again?!


This 12.3 release features a new system called Sprauge as well as numerous additions in older systems. Through several slights-of-hand I finally got a few things to work here. Activating the Railgun in the Strand system brings you to

the interior of Planet Sprauge, first to the Transfer Station, an enlargement of one of the vanilla bays, then into the Planet Core. You can fly into and around the Core Base. Many of the rooms are also from vanilla selections with

many additions made by DwnUndr. Just like when I made the Illumnion planet cave system in the previous release, making the walls solid was a major challenge, please forgive any imperfections.

Planet Sprague was damaged heavily in history and was abandoned. Years later miners discovered the riches inside the planet and began to carve it from the inside so as to not release the toxic alien organisms. Centuries later the planet

is nearly hollow and old established bases have a heavy presence. The interior is also haunted by millenia old races, tread quietly in those areas. The Miner's Guild security forces attempt to keep those dreaded forces away from the

populated areas, you are on your own in the void.

For extensive exploring or fighting inside the Core Base I recommend switching to our special Mine shield as it smooths out the wall grabbing and noise.

Thanks to Soupman for adding even more voices (well over 5000 so far) and base billboards for this release. He has also updated all of the forums at multiple sites for this release!


Rules for the UnderVerse version 12.3
Thanks to [RIP]Oddjob for cleaning these up.

This is the quick version of the rules. You are responsible for knowing them all so check out the full version at once you have settled in.

The UnderVerse is a Role Play Game (RPG) with a description of details within the rules. This is not a role play 'ONLY' server. We understand some games are for role play only but not here. It has been proven for years that our membership has enjoyed the best enjoyment experience from all players learning when to be 'in character' and when to 'be out of character'.

All players are expected to show respect and social interaction in the game, on the website, in chat, and on Ventrilo according to the rules. It is not the intention of this game to provide a place for people to become adversely affected by role play that involves violent aggression. Players must know how to control themselves when it is time to be 'out of the role play character'.

Our admins are called ~Purifier~ and ~Regulator~. Once you read this manual you can trade it to them for $5 million in credits. Warning: if you keep it too long and your ship gets destroyed, you will lose it.

New players should turn their music up to 50% and listen to the voices outside Planet Origin and at each of the five wormholes you will find there. We HIGHLY recommend you take the jump into the Merchant Alley, the other wormholes go into very tough territory for a new player. You can't return to the Origin.
How do you earn credits ($) in the UV? Shoot the red npcs for good lootdrops, mine in our asteroid fields, loot our wrecks, ask someone about a good trade run or take missions. We also have lucrative events weekly.
Our ships and gear look expensive, but once you get going you can make $150 million/hour doing some of the above. Heck, you can make $75 million just entering various events. More if you do well. Merchants can sell you the best fighter shields, thrusters and armor.

Did I mention the full rules are on the website? :)

1) No one may use the names Riddick or Vin Diesel, they are reserved for the real McCoy should he ever come to visit us.

2) Freelancers: If you are not a member of a Clan, simply use your Freelancer name and enjoy yourself. If you are a member of a clan feel free to use your clan tag at the front of your name (except as listed below).

3) Mercenaries: Any player can accept money or items to kill another player. Real men will add a [MERC] tag to the end of their name. Faction members can't add [MERC], obviously.

4) Pirates: Pirates are allowed here only if they are FIRST approved by the admins. Then you will be tagged [X]PilotName[X]. You will be rep'd RED to all Faction players and their Faction npcs. ALL of your pilots must carry this tag. It is highly recommended that you get several good ships and lots of cash before you undertake this role.

5) Major Factions: After you play here awhile you will notice we have four Major Fighting Factions plus Merchants. You must be here a week after posting in the 'Hello' thread and then you can apply to the admins to form your own Faction team.

6) Taxing: Only Pirates (anywhere) and Faction members (in their Faction Space) can tax other players. This can be done once per hour.

7) These are some of the things that are not allowed:
Blockading inside Faction spaces,
Dock raping,
Repeat killing,
Vulgar language,
Disrupting an event,
Shooting at a player under level 10 unless they shoot first,
Shooting at a player inside an event or special system (except as allowed during the event).

8) Event and Special systems: No role play fighting is allowed in the following systems; Either chat system, the Origin, the four systems in each of the North and South 'Road to Glory' areas, the UnderVerse system, and the two NPC Challenge Arenas. Furthermore, no interference of any kind is allowed in those last 11 of those 14 mentioned systems, physical or verbal.

Did I mention the full rules are on the website? :)


The UnderVerse in flight:

First, turn your music up a bit! We have audio messages in many places and other special sounds as well. ;)
We decided that planet diving and Sun diving is in poor taste. Doing it while running from a fight will rapidly earn you an unwanted reputation, So will F1'ing out of a fight.
However, we all know that sometimes you may be loaded with valuable cargo in a ship that can't stand up to a fighter. Your reputation is your own, decide how you must.
You will start out friendly with most custom npc's. For the most part, killing any red with you is good, few other npc factions will become hostile as a result. As always, killing non-red npc's may result in you having to get a bribe to get friendly with them again.
NPC Challenge Arenas: Welcome to a new concept (as far as I know)! No longer do you have to take missions just to beat up on the residents of the UnderVerse. There are two of these systems on opposite sides of the 'verse with different NPC's in each (hint, heh). When you jump in you will see multiple trade lanes branching off marked "3 challenges', '5 challenges', etc. Choose how many you wish to fight and jump into the trade lane and engage. Your reward will be the loot they drop. If you wish comrades to join in the fights, that is fine. Do NOT interfere where you have not been invited.
North and South 'Road to Glory' areas: These two areas have four systems each. You must traverse the first three to get to the fourth. The catch? The wormholes to the next are heavily guarded. It seems the only way through is to take missions for the system residents. The rewards? The opportunity to buy Ultra VHF's, Battleships, Cruisers and Bombers. Do NOT interfere where you have not been invited.
The Mosh Pit!!! Feeling frosty?! ;) The two entrances to this system each have a planet to dock at before traveling to the center of the system. There lies the Central Stage, complete with strobe lights and head banging music. This is a free-for-all arena. All bets are off if you enter here, anyone can attack anyone regardless of alignment (except [non]pilots, under rank 10 pilots, admins). Need a little excitement? Here it is! No whining if you get whacked in your freighter if you used this system as a shortcut.
The Graveyard: Here lies the remnants of the Coalsack system, another Necromonger victory. Beware of the extremely high radiation while you search the wrecks of various ships here.
Fame or Shame: The Destructable bases system...This special place has four bases. While you can play here with your friends anytime you want to, times will also be set for admin-run events with nice payouts to the participants. Ship restrictions will be up to the Admins.

DMZ for improvements made to FLAC! Like /autobuy ALL. Also he removed the registration requirements, with permission from Eagle, so anyone can try FLAC now.

Rest in Peace to our sleeping brothers:
Phenomena... 1956 - 2007. We miss your laugh bro and know you are playing alongside us. You were always there when we needed a server or an assist. We will always be here for you. May you have fair winds and following seas. Our hearts go out to his brothers Riot, Wardog and Meatball, his nephew KrazyDawg and his son Bigman. Phenomena now commands a Battleship orbiting the RIP Homeworld where he will maintain eternal vigilance for us.
Wyno... 1967 - 2010. Another RIP gone before his time. Wyno created all of the ship ini files and created all of the ship infocards for the UnderVerse. He also was the theme originator and made all of the thrusters, shields, armor and placement of all of these throughout the UnderVerse. He edited out all vanilla references from the infocards. He helped with the npc ship Lootdrops. He did all of the Capitol ship tweaks. He edited or created most of the Hardpoints for the ships. And he kicked ass in his Leviathan!
Lion... ? - 2011. Co-founder of Team RIP. Mark Smith (Lion) and Mark Hale (Shark) co-founded Team RIP in February of 2000. From this small start we have accumulated 144 members over the years. Some of these members 'got' the purpose of Team RIP, and some did not. Lion created most of the first 30 or 40 RIP members' pilot pictures, he created our first website on his home network for us to use for years and he created some of the cool textures we use in the Gauntlet level today. Even though he stopped playing many years ago there are many of us who remember his contributions fondly. Thanks bro.
Gallows... ? - 2012. The music that he did for the UnderVerse is still commented on today. His "Welcome to the UnderVerse" is the first thing everyone hears when they start the mod up. The voices he created for the Origin wormholes that tell what each faction is will stay in peoples minds forever.


Custom Music/Voices by Gallows:

See you on the Flipside (Song for Wyno)

Thanks! It has been a fun ride. The wealth of knowledge out there is amazing. The scope of modding freelancer is so large that there is really no way to provide 'one' tutorial for it, heh.

I always give credit where it is due.
