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.
The development team is back in action mod progress at a feverish pace for its final phase

It has been quite a few months since our last news update, sadly. Now, there are many reasons why this has occurred but, suffice it to say, development on the mod is back and we're completing the finishing touches to get the full mod out for all to enjoy.
FriendlyFire and W0dk4 have been working on improving the DX9 engine, both in terms of performance as well as adding new functionality to make our Star Wars universe look even better than before. I won't spoil the surprise of what they've been up to but I can personally say, it's awesome! These two have also been working on many of the core gameplay elements and getting them into action like dynamic hyperbuoys.
CheeseOnToast has been working on redoing every part of the graphical interface. I can't tell you how thrilled I am of the results and I'm sure you will be too! You won't even recognize it has a Freelancer HUD!
Since many of the larger projects have been completed, like the 3rd version of Kuat Drive Yards, Sizer has taken it upon himself to redo some of the models that needed some love. And, in typical Sizer fashion, they're stunning.
That's it for now. I promise all our fans you'll be seeing a flurry of updates soon to show off all that we've been doing! For those of you that played our demo, thank you as well! The data and feedback we received has been utterly invaluable!
To all our fans, 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!
