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.

Watch the sequel to the video that got our mod on PC Gamer's front page! Thank you to all our fans who again supported us into the top 100. Now we need you more than ever to get us into the top 5!

Posted by FW:ToW_Sushi on Dec 11th, 2012


Before I get into the meat up this update, I wanted to give a HUGE thanks to our fans that got us into the top 100 mods of the year. It's your support and your continued enthusiasm in Star Wars and Freelancer that keep us doing what we're doing.  We now need this support more than ever to get into the top 5 upcoming mods.  So, if you voted for us once, please, if you can, take the time to vote for us again. 

I also wanted to say a huge thanks to the writers at PC Gamer and PCGamesN for their coverage of our mod. This nod from amazing PC gaming magazines like these really flabbergasted the entire dev team and makes us that much more committed to making this THE Star Wars flight action RP sim people have been waiting for!

Now, to get into the real meat of this post. As you all saw in Sizer's previous post we've added quite a number of gameplay features that really has enhanced the experience. Now, some of those things are more subtle than others so I thought I'd make a development video explaining what these additions are and what we intended to do with them. 


I hope that explains some of the features we've added.  Please post any questions, comments or suggestions below. 

Expect another development video in the next few days showing some other HUGE additions we've brought to Freelancer and this mod.

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!

great stuff there! again and again impressive what you guys are able to to with the good old freelancer. can't wait to see the next dev video and finally play the final version! :D
oh and also, two questions:
- will there be an updated demo to test some of the features and the rebalancing of the ships?
- the huge space station in the background of the video ... is it the centerpoint station?
oh and also: have some votes! (well at least one from me and probably some from friends of mine :P)

1) Nah, we're going to go straight into open beta. Any rebalance will happen there, though we hope the new balance is going to be well received.

2) Yes.

And thanks for the vote(s)!

Right now I'm wondering, are there any limits for you guys? Pushing the Freelancer engine this far, it doesn't look like it anymore. It's just so stunning, the way you've changed, heavily modified every single aspect of the game just makes me love this mod. Thank you guys, and keep your eye-candy, impressive and amazing work coming.

Voted.

Nothing is impossible even when the Community and u start to search for an answer for a question. I think ur Fans would overrun some Game maker like the guys who made the X Universe. theres always an answer and we all can find it. So tell us when u have problems th emost of us are maybe not so smart like u but we will do what we can....Well i hope that we do it.

I don't think its possible to go any further without designing a whole new engine for Freelancer. (Feel free to take that as a challenge) :)
