Freelancer Mission Pack v.1.1

This mission pack includes all the campaigns featured at Freelancer.ag.ru except X-Com (because X-Com is self-dependent project already consisting of 100 sectors; its author has announced he is going to fill the whole UB map with X-Com campaign) and Bear's Pit campaign (because it is very large and self-dependent too).

To install Tracona Unlimited, please unzip the content of tracona_unlimited.zip file to your game's \Data\Campaigns folder. Most of the custom sectors will be added to a separate folder \Data\Campaigns\Tracona Unlimited; and single edited standard UB campaign map (L15_b2) will be added to \Data\Campaigns\Unfinished Business. Now run "Set JA2UB Campaign" utility and select the option "Tracona Unlimited". Start a new game and enjoy :)

Of course, we could not keep the original coordinates for all the campaigns featured - some of them are partially (or totally) intersected with others. Most of campaigns are shifted on the UB map; but we have tried to shift them not too far - in most cases the campaigns and single maps are within 1-2 sectors of original position.

All the campaigns and maps that was supplied with author's notes and descriptions, are keeping these texts in Tracona Unlimited too. Check the folders with the names like [campaign name]_readme inside Tracona Unlimited folder. Additionally, all available sector descriptions are collected in general folder !SECTOR_DESCRIPTIONS. If you are stuck trying to conquer sector or find something special, you may want to read the author's recommendations. If no description is available for a certain sector, it means the author considered his work to be simple enough and not requiring the explanations.

All the campaigns and single maps have different complexity level. Generally, we have tried to put more complex sectors closer to the map edge while simple sectors/campaigns are placed closer to original UB sectors.

The campaigns/sectors are splitted into 3 major groups: A, B and C.

A: It is recommended to try these campaigns before or right after assault on Varrez, or you may consider them too easy later.

B: These campaigns are for the period between the Varrez capture and final assault on missile base. The battles are pretty tough but the standard UB campaign end seems to be a little harder.

C: Well... Are you sure you are a profi? Have you played JA2 and JA2:UB long enough to stand these fights? These campaigns are recommended for those who have finished original UB campaign. It is supposed your mercs are well-equipped and trained when you are sending them to these missions.

TU Description


[Please check the picture enclosed for better understanding of campaign placements. It is recommended to complete each campaign before travelling to sectors belonging to other campaigns. However you can play as you wish, of course]

1. Unfinished Business

Author: Sir-Tech
Type: Unclassified
Complexity: Unclassified
Sectors: total 23 / guarded 20
Original campaign of JA:UB

The only change is in L15_b2 sector - now there is the way back to Tracona from this sector. So you can do everything except using the final elevator in original campaign - simply jump back to Power Plant from there and try to complete other campaigns. When you'll feel yourself like you are about to finish the game - return to k15_b3 sector and use the elevator in far western sector zone...
