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.

We've had a great month of development for the Freeworlds: Tides of War. We've reached several milestones in the mods development. Most notably, we've almost finalized our faction influence, trade and unrest system as well as our trading system. Now that the details have been worked out, Qi, W0dk4 and FriendlyFire will work on implementation.
Another huge development was the work done by our Roleplay Director, DarkForce. He's created an extensive document to help guide players in art of roleplaying. We're very excited to release this document to the public for their consumption prior to the release of the mod. As you can see, we're very keen on making a very roleplay intensive environment for our server's playerbase. Let us know what you think of this document here!

While this is a very labour intensive process, often taking more than two hours per ship, we felt it was important to finish several of the ships prior to release. Below are some of the more notable ship improvements:
