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.

Report article RSS Feed Demo server event and AMA

A demo server fleet battle event and an Ask Me Anything by new mod leader Sizer after the event.

Posted by Mystacx on Apr 28th, 2013

ello Freeworlders! Friday the 3rd of May Saturday May 4th, starting ~4PM GMT, there will be a massive battle on the FW:ToW Demo server! At least two fleets of fighters, bombers, capital ships and much more will be duking it out against eachother. You can help decide who'll win!

Expierence the thrill of dogfighting or the tactical precision manouvres of capital ship combat!

Money will be freely provided before the event starts, so you'll have your pick of any ship in the demo.

Interested? Just show up on the FWTOW teamspeak: ts3server://
Please be aware that the server will be wiped beforehand, as we'll be providing free monies prior to the event!

After the event there'll be an AMA (Ask Me Anything) with new Dev leader Sizer on teamspeak. He'll answer any questions you have about the mod and it's current development state.


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!

If I'm right you're in the same timezone as me, so if you show up around 6PM local time you should be good.

See you there!

He has a point, Once the Main Server goes up, I know a number of people will have to remake their ships and identities for the people thay play. Also thats when you have to start making sub-groups of the factions in the game. Discovery has really no room, since they also ask a arm and a leg for a sub-faction or your own. ToW will be better cause you just submit a requisition in a RP format of the universe and wait for approval. Its not biggy that all accounts will be cleared :P
