Eighteen years have passed since FreeSpace 2 and the destruction of Capella, and the shattered colonies of man are finally ready to re-open the jump node to Earth. As the Alliance teeters on the verge of total social collapse, the Security Council deploys the elite 14th Battlegroup to re-establish contact with Earth, and young pilot Samuel Bei finds himself once more under his estranged father's command. Age of Aquarius describes the journey of the 14th Battlegroup as its mission to the Blue Planet goes shockingly wrong. War in Heaven takes place eighteen months after the events of Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius and details the final stages of the civil war between Sol and the rest of her colonies: a war without good or evil, only shades of gray. Built at the cutting edge of the FreeSpace Open engine, Blue Planet is a fan-made conclusion to the FreeSpace saga, a story of sacrifice, triumph, and destiny, and one of the most beloved FreeSpace mods of all time.

In which we talk about music a bit and show off some tracks we got composed just for us.

Posted by on

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.
