Freeworlds: Tides of War is a fan built Star Wars total conversion mod for Digital Anvil's Freelancer game that was released several years ago. When fans began to make mods for Freelancer, one of the many things people were keen on seeing was a Freelancer mod based on the Star Wars universe developed by George Lucas. Freeworlds and Tides of War were the answer to this outcry. The development team of both mods have now joined forces to create an epic new Star Wars TC, Freeworlds: Tides of War.
Title says it all. The atmosphere was too good to pass up.
A large part of the effect is due to the new nebula handling we have, which I tentatively call "light scaling", effectively making light maps pierce through the fog and thus show up before the rest of the map does.
