One area where Blue Planet has always drawn praise is for its music selection. The original release of Age of Aquarius back in 2007 was one of the few mods at the time that included several new tabled tracks (meaning soundtracks adapted for use with FS2_Open's dynamic soundtrack system), as well as a selection of single tracks, strung together via hand-crafted play-sound-from-file instructions.
In War in Heaven, we used a lot of the same techniques to create a fittingly epic soundtrack.
During development, we were offered an opportunity. In the past, we had relied on stitching our soundtrack together from external sources, but now we could obtain the services of DaddyWarhol (Who composed a few soundtracks for the Earth Defense mod). Getting custom-made music makes one feel all important and grown up, and we were liking it.
After we released War In Heaven R1, we were approached by Belisarius, who offered his music writing skills to us. He has been busy writing music for us, and there's a few pieces we'd like to share.
I hope you enjoyed these. Until the next time, this is The E, wishing you a nice, rocking day.
