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 moddb awards are upon us again and being such the FW:ToW mod team is taking a look back at all the accomplishments and milestones this year in a three part article series!

Posted by FW:ToW_Sushi on Nov 25th, 2010


In this last article of our three part series, I will show to you the amazing model development that took place in the latter part of this year. We were fortunate enough to add to our development roster an extremely talented bunch of modellers; some of the best I've seen in a SW mod related project. With their talents, we were able to effectively raise the bar of all the models that we currently hold in our mod. Their careful attention to detail, dedication to their craft and love of SWs has really made the models leap out of the screen.

The first modeller is known as HotDog. He leaped onto the development team to make the XQ-4 station and a prototype of the new Corellian Patrol Boat:

The next modeller blew us away with his incredible since of style and careful attention to details. Dr. Knickers, a developer from the Thrawn's Revenge mod, joined up and produced this wonderful adaption of the E-Wing and textured Sizer's beautiful Sith Infiltrator:

Our next huge modeller was Kalo, another developer from the Thrawn's Revenge mod. With his work he saw improvement to our existing ships, optimizations of models and he even created some new works of his own with the Z-95 and Satellite Stations. Here's just a short preview of what he added to the mod:

New Satellites

New Bulk Cruiser Texture

New Z-95 Model


Another EaW modeller that we were fortunate enough to grab on ourt eam was Warb_Null. He's produced some fabulous stuff; Cutlass Patrol Fighter (Jedi), DX-9 Storm Trooper transport and his newest creation, the Z-Ceptor:

DX-9

The last modeller that I will talk about here comes from an individual from our own community, Sizer. He's produced high-quality models at an exceptional rate. We are truly blessed to have someone of his talents on our team. I would list off all he's done but it would be longer than this current post; so just enjoy his talent:

There are many more models that you can find in our image gallery, so do please take a look. There you can find some work by Lord X and Bouma, two other talented individuals we have on our team.

And with that I will end this article. As you can see, the team has made some fantastic progress over the year on many fronts with the goal of creating the best Star Wars multiplayer space simulator as possible.

We hope like what you see and give us a vote for the MOTY awards.

As always, any questions, comments or suggestions are welcomed!!
