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.
Today I'd like to announce a week of special events for the FW:ToW server. Every day next week, we'll be hosting a different themed event. Some of these events will have prizes involved, which will apply to the final campaign - wallet bonuses and the like. During this week, any newly created character will receive 3x the starting cash, allowing you to jump into the more advanced fighters right away.
Monday @1800 GMT - The Nal Hutta Open, a dogfighting tournament sponsored by the Ccalras Corporation
Tuesday @1800 GMT - Pan Galactic Race Qualifiers - short range races
Wednesday @1600 GMT - Pan Galactic Race - Full Galaxy race.
Thursday @1400 GMT, 1800 GMT, 2200 GMT - RP Event - Secure the Stolen Transport
Friday @1600 GMT - The Nal Hutta Open Finals
Friday All Day - Scavenger Hunt
Saturday All Day - Fleet Day - Free Capitals for the Day
Saturday @1800 GMT - Finale Fight
During these days, NPCs will be turned OFF when appropriate. Also, any account that submits a screenshot during this week will receive a wallet credit for the final release Campaign. Any account that submits a video will be credited for a larger sum.
Details on the events will be posted in THIS Forum
We hope to see you on the server, and look forward to shooting you down!
If you like what you see, and have been playing, please don't forget to tell your friends, your communities you frequent and social sites like REDDIT/Twitter about this mod. Player word of mouth goes a long way and we'd appreciate any of the support we can get for this mod of ours! Thanks everyone!
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Freeworlds: Tides of War. We love games like Freelancer that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
