I am not claiming it as mine. I do pointed the mod to its original website.
This is a HW2 mod, I think it does no harm to keep the game going with everyone enjoying any new stuffs coming out?
Also, because I feel it is so cool that I need to share it? :)
I guess there is a problem with HW2 mod players with different mother tongue. Everyone rarely shares out new stuffs or ideas due to language barrier and culture preferences!
The Macross: DYRL mod, gundam 0083 mod, gundam seed mod and exceptional mod but they don't get too much attention because popularity of themes and ideas.
Many English speaking players are more familiar with Slipstream, Battlestar Galatica, StarTrek, StarGate, StarWars, Halo or AFF...
These themes are more relevant as it is English based.
This mod makers or team is really passionate enough to design and create a new mod with its own dedicated website (Called Fre'liya/Elven Empire btw.) and a mod's history of the race origin.The ship also looks cool, with design concept explained.

Alternate Site: Pls do use a translator! :)
The author has wrote this stuff with approximately 10million Chinese characters/words. Explaining the reason why they left this galaxy, their search for new home in the new galaxy, how they survive in another galaxy, dark age and rediscovery of their identity as stars-worthy race, rediscovery of Balcorra gate, 1st contact with S'Jet at the gate, reasons for intervention back into the original galaxy and as Higarra ally.
It took me some 5 hours to read the whole stuff.... :bleh:
Here are some really short version of the whole writing.
Short version here:
In Higarran language, Fre'liya means Elf. Thus, Fre'liya Empire are also called Elven Empire. The use of word Elven is due to great respect of the galaxy nations toward the queen of Fre'liya Empire.
When they 1st appeared in this galaxy, no one understands their existence. Where the Fre'liya/Elven Empire originated, its people or its location in the starmap. Their space fleets are not battle worthy, clumsy with really thick armor and crude in weaponry... Laughable even by comparison of any neutral nations' frigate. However, after series of battles, their ships design and battle tactics has begun to systematically refine and improve.
What truly put Fre'liya Empire into everyone attention is its participation as ally with Higarran during the great siege of Higarra capital star by Vagyr forces after Makaan death (by Sajuuk).
During the heat of the siege, Higarran fleet was already in dire situation. At this moment, fleet after fleet of significantly advanced massive Fre'liya Capital ship had jumped in, shielded most of the attack by Vagyr with their thick armor. With their powerful armor, they withstand waves after waves of Vagyr capital weapons and prevails with minor damages only. Their fixed iron cannons however never fails to tore out every decks in Vagyr capital ships. As more and more Fre'liya Capital Ships reinforcements arrives, Vagyr forces finally succumbed from heavy losses and retreated.
Months after the siege was thwarted, the battle details had eventually released and the pivotal role the Elven Empire fleet had played drawn everyone attention.
When, where, how and why the Elven Empire rises in this already explored galaxy with such a powerful fleet is an unknown secret.
Many version of their origin and existence was rumored.
Some said they are of Taidanian descent for similar ship design. Some believes they are from the Higarran Great Exodus fleet for their alliance with the Higarran. Some even connects them with the Bentusi.
As the Elven Empire's military, diplomatic and trading relationships begin to flourish with the Higarran. Elven Empire has finally released limited materials regarding its origin and history without revealing its true location and strengths. These materials reveals Fre'liyan are originated from this galaxy and explained it rises as an empire. The Chronicle, after being translated and scripted in standard galaxy language with the help of Higarran scholars, is then released to every one throughout the galaxy...
The general background begins before the verge of Taiidan-Higarran Empire all out war (of HW1) where a neutral nation (C'wyeion Dukedom?) sandwiched between two super power discovered a functional balcora gate relic at its space.
After decades of studies and restoration, the Dukedom scientists discovered its true usage as hyperspace gateway through a database within the gate's core processor unit. It is part of a complex networks of intergalactic gateways that even stretched to some other galaxies built by ancient space civilization for trading and traveling . However, most of these gateways are now dead after eons of years. Thus, a useless relic.
It still has 1 more important function, to make single far hyperspace jump granting its user and the gate could provide the needed activation energy
This means most valuable asset to the tiny space dukedom. To travel to any location given the coordinate is known.
Afraid of eventual lost of sovereignty and fate of its people, they decided to restore the gate to escape before the peril of war clashes. At Year 6552, a Mega Project called "StarGate" was initiated. The dukedom planned for a scheduled single mass migration of its people from this galaxy to other galaxy. This was their last resolve and hope to preserve their doomed sovereignty, culture and freedom even though chances of successful journey was slim. From the gateway E71A9 database, they had chosen gateway K49E3, a location few million light year away from their galaxy. It shown high possibility of habitable planet/s at that location. It was a big gamble, for there was no guarantee gateway K49E3 was still functional, but the hyperspace journey would be relatively safe. It was a blind jump with no clue awaiting them at the other side.
To maximize the chance of survival of its people, they begun to amass everything they could to build the most massive and durable ship at their nation which they named "Galaxy Ark". The project went on in utmost secrecy, so that the warring empires would not aware of the gate existence nor their great ship.
As if its the calmness before the storm, both empires saw the dukedom's abnormal activities, but no attention was given. They saw many similar abnormalities by all neutral nations at their mutual borders and both are in last prep for the great war.
Bentusi realized the C'wyeIon Dukedom's plan and decided to help; for the great ship is to escape peril, not a threat to them. With guarantee by dukedom of non-armament, they provided some key designs and resources to hasten the shipbuilding progress.
Thus, the ark finished months before the war started.
It is only 1 giant ark with enough place for its finest people to survive the long travel. The royals, scientists, officials, engineers, experts in every field of practices are selected, with a small percentage of lucky normal citizens.
Year6560, May 13th, the all out war between the 2 empires had begun. The battle broke out at all fronts, many neutral border planets/nations were occupied, destroyed or forced to take side. These planets had became front bases and anchor points for the vast empire fleets. Eventually, they were integrated as part of each empire's borderlands.
As for the dukedom, there was no exception, it sovereignty was lost at the 1st wave of clashes. The dukedom ceased to be. However, its project StarGate had already reached its goal. On the same day the war broke out, the ark had passed through the fully energized hyperspace gateway for the far-off place.
As soon the jump was made, the massive was scuttled into million pieces of space junks, to prevent from becoming a threat to the ark itself or at the wrong hand. Thus, the secret ship won't be pursued nor being even knew by almost anyone in the galaxy.
As for the old dukedom, all records of its existence were slowly faded away like the Cobblestone in the river. Nor it being fully remembered by the Fre'liya Empire after few thousand years.
