God mode:
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of
the file
before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "perfoptions.ini" file in
the game folder.
Change the "DIFFICULTY_SCALE = 1.00" line to "DIFFICULTY_SCALE = 0.00".

Finding secret bases and jump holes:
When you are looking for hidden jump holes to other systems, turn on your
Nav Map,
then select the "Show Patrols" map. The lines that appear show popular paths
that the
AI ships use. Almost any path that stretches out beyond the normal
trade-lane traffic of
a star system will lead to a hidden starport or even a hidden jump hole. Fly
out to where
the line leads to and turn on the "Solars" option on your targeting
You will usually find a place of interest. However, in places with reduced
sensor ranges
you will probably have to rely on visually looking for something. Also, to
find all the paths,
make sure to look at the "neutral", "hostile" and "friendly" paths in the
patrol paths map.
Be wary of stumbling upon an enemy's base.

Easier battles:
For slightly easier battles when attacking, select a hostile ship as your
target then ignore that
ship. Focus instead on the other hostiles but do not select them as a
target. Even though they
are not selected you will still be given the blindfire marker (the crosshair
you aim with), although
it will be smaller. Sometimes an untargeted hostile will just sit there,
waiting to be shot.
Other times, it will remain on a straight course and will not maneuver too
much. The AI
will eventually catch on to you and will alter its techniques or will send
in more ships.
Also, you will not be able to use missiles like this.

Change the "DIFFICULTY_SCALE = 1.00" line to "DIFFICULTY_SCALE = 0.00". 
in the perfoptions.ini file for GOD mode, but to make little bit easier 
you can change the "DIFFICULTY_SCALE = 1.00" line to "DIFFICULTY_SCALE 
= 0.50" and you will take only half the damage, or you can change 
"DIFFICULTY_SCALE = 2.00" if you wish to make the game harder.

To make your self imortal locate the string DIFFICULTY_SCALE = 1.00 in 
PerfOptions.ini which is located in C:\My Documents\My Games\Freelancer\
Simple change the 1 to a 0 to make  your ship invincible or change it 
to 2 for a more challenging game.

Sit around Essen and Dortmound station for the Red Hessians. 
Kill the Hessians and sometime they drop Niobium. Dortmound pay 
over 1k for a single piece of Niobium, but you dont even have to move far.

*Must be Enemies with the Hessians*
ps best way to level up fast too, also junkers attack every now and 
then but they drop Barragers Mk3s and lancer missles.
