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.
FW: ToW have been hard at work obtaining the best models/textures we can for this mod. This new import list and scaling is sure to impress even the biggest Star Wars critic

As I've posted in a previous article, FW: ToW have been looking for ways to improve the Star Wars experience of our mod. One of the ways to do this is to get scaled and detailed models into the game that just make people go, "OH MY GOD". Well, this news piece sure won't disappoint you in that regard.
Sovereign, our head importer/model wiz, has been hard at work scouring sites for the best models/textures he can get. He honestly works about 8+hrs each day changing the models/textures in a way that Freelancer (FL) can use in game. He's also big on scale, and has scaled each ship to their canonical length. Now, I have to warn you, most of these ships I show you here will NOT be flyable in game. We've produced a player flyable shiplist that we're pretty adamant on not changing. That being said, for future updates to FW: ToW, this may change. So, if you dream of flying a Executor Class Super Star Destroyer, you may get it :)
Anyways, enough blabbering, lets get to the EYE CANDY:
These next two shots is to give you an idea of scale.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this latest update. A big thanks goes out to Sov for his importing work.
