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.

As with just about any game out there since forever, those are options which can be turned off.

If anything, the game should run better now than it did during the demo.

As far as I know, SWAT Devs are also trying to get such graphics. Although they're using a different engine for a WIP project, Freelancer 2, this shows things that other mods tend to overlook and deem unwanting. Games aren't just of gameplay, but also graphical essence. These additions to the graphical side, it will make the expirence, all the better.

Nice. I just hope there's an option to turn off lensflare. Lensflare and bloom are my two most hated effects.

Yes, though not the vanilla lens flares, which aren't very intrusive anyway.

Note that lens flares only appear for suns, not other bright objects. We don't want to overdo it, either.

Thanks man, and I'm well aware of your sticking point with normal mapping. The problem is merely one of manpower, as we're slowly redoing them, but it's taking a long time.

Woohoo hoo. That looks so awesome. I can't believe that u say atumatic turrets are impossible to make...Look what u have done to Freelancer. When someone can change the goddamn Turret rules than u. thats not a joke.U are my favourite Modder. U all. Uh by the way there is someone who makes a Freeworlds Clone Wars. when u have the time and if u want maybe u can help him it looks good too.
