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.

A news piece on the Star Wars total conversion for Freelancer

Posted by FW:ToW_Sushi on Aug 19th, 2010


We have been fortunate enough to obtain two very good modeller/texturers on the team of late and they've started to produce some very high quality work. The first developer, Nemisis, had a task to improve the texture of our Pirate Ugly Starfighter fleet, which you can find more information on here. Nemi's tried to make these "pretty" uglies more grungy and grimy. I think he succeeded in his task to make them look more Pirate-esque.

Pretty Uglies Ver. 2.0

Nemi's next project is creating new texture for our A-9 Interceptor.

The other new developer is named, HotDog. He is a fabulously talented individual who comes to the mod through Shattered Worlds: War Torn (another wonderful mod for Freelancer). In just 3 short days, he's produce some epic work. I present to you, the new XQ-4 Platform

Our new XQ-4 Platform

His next set of work is to make a new model for our Corellian Patrol Ship using these sketches as a blueprint:


And then tackle Centerpoint Station:

I would like to ask this. Do you have ship landing gear or you will use Freelancer's landing gear? BTW great screen. Can't wait for release.

We could do landing gear, but the amount of work would be quite substantial for something you only see for 5 or so seconds. So, it won't be in the initial release of the mod. But who knows in the future.

Well, FW:ToW will probably be more rigid than the current FWs as we're infusing more RP into the mod. That being said, we will release the mod with the option to run your own server, if you are interested in just playing the mod without restrictions.

Ah, I see you've captured Corellia's typical saucer-shaped ship profile (WHERE CAN I GET ONE OF THOSE?!)! Well done! I was afraid noone else would catch that little detail... Keep up the good work guys! Looking better and better with each new update!

Very nice work as always guys, loving your uglies, and am very impressed with your Corellian Patrol ship, nice design keeping the familiar aesthetic and yet managing to be quite different too.

Keep up the good work.
