Freeworlds: Tides of War Demo Patch 1.3 Freelancer Mod News
Posted by Sushi on 2012/5/5 9:43:12 (11207 reads) News by the same author

Over the past two weeks, the team has been fixing all remaining bugs, performance glitches as well as adding several new gameplay related programming features into the mod; like player dockable capital ships. We also have been re-editing our normal/specular maps to improve their overall look and feel with great results:

A-Wing Normal and Specular Map Render

YT-1300 Specular and Normal Map

New Corellian Cruiser Glow/Normal/Spec Maps

Probably one of the biggest changes in the 1.3 patch is the new fix for XP OS users. So, if you've had any issues in the past, please reattempt with this new patch fix and let us know if this improves your problems with launching the mod.

And for those people still considering whether or not to try this mod, please take a look at the video below:
