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 decided it give it limited rotation for balancing reasons.

I thought this was only on the BTS-S3 model (the one with 2 pilots)

With the model exporter our very own W0dk4 has created, we have been able to begin to fix many of the model issues with shading. While not as important in vanilla Freelancer, with the upgraded graphics engine (DX8-->DX9) in Freeworlds: Tides of War, we needed such a tool to create good looking models that doesn't cause ligthing/shadow errors. Furthermore, we have been able to create very good normal and specular maps using a wonderful new tool.

With the combination of both these great resources, we will be going through our models working to improve them.

The video is an example of what it to come.

(Thanks to the First Strike team for use of their model and texture)
