Introducing

Hello! No models to show right now, instead i'd like to talk to you about the music for this mod.
First off, it's made by me! KittyKitsune, and I am the newest member working on this mod.
I am the composer and possibly will also be making sound effects and work on voice over later on.


Now for the music

The musical goal for Golden Age of War is to have at least 19 original tunes, same as in Empire at War : FOC.
Now obviously, if I could have an austrian philharmonic orchestra play the music that would be lovely, but since we are working for free that is somewhat unlikely to happen. Instead I am making the music using a virtual studio, my two beautiful keyboards, and a lots of VSTi (Virtual Studio Technology Instruments).

The music for Golden Age of War will be a bit more varied than in Empire at War, it won't all be strings and brass. Why?
Well, this part of star wars takes place a long time before the movies, and the lines here are not as clearly defined as in the movies, this is more ambiguous. The original star wars theme is iconic and classic, but it tells a different story, one of a hero fighting the established power.
But in our time, it's an enemy unknown that engage in a brutal war.

The sound track is suppose to reflect the uncertainty, and the shock of the encounter with the sith war machine, it is a force that is creeping across the galaxy conquering in it's path.

The idea is then: Golden Age of War will feature a mix of Techno music, ambient music, Metallic sounds and Symphonic tunes as well. Those of you who have listened to the Sith Theme should know how that the symphonic orchestras work together with the electronic sounding components to create a sense of disturbance. It doesn't sound "nice" and it isn't suppose to.

Now I understand that many wish for music like Knight of the Old Republic or from other star wars titles. I can't promise anything, but if something works with an RTS I will give it a listen and maybe be inspired, so if you have something very inspiring let me know in a comment, and maybe it will influence some of the future tunes. Currently there are 7 completed tunes, so still a lot to work on, and the tunes may also change over time.

Well that's enough about the theory behind this, it's easy to get lost in a wall of text.
Today I am giving you 2 new tunes to listen to. The Main Theme, which you will probably realise has many similarities with the Sith theme, and will also have similarities with the Republic theme when it is done.
And also what might be a Ground Combat Theme, provided that Mr. Kharkov gives his final approval of it in the end.

Thank you for taking an interest in Golden Age of War: Incursion of the Sith, Stay Tuned

Any crude prediction of when this might be done? Excuse my impatience this just looks like a pretty amazing mod, hopefully the best yet.

I1-games.softpedia-static.com

Are the Republic soldiers going to look like that? And are Jedi going to be recruitable units?

Aside from odds and ins help, I'm the only one working on it.. An alpha maybe in the next few months (1-3) depending on how much I work on the mod,. Now that I have removed a major obstacle out of the way regarding building game ready assets progress has picked up.

And yes, Republic troops will look more or less like that, or at least some will.
Both Jedi and Sith will be recruitable as "standard" units.

I aware that the image is from the Great Galactic War/tor. The academy on Korriban existed millennia before the Great Galactic War,. however I''m unsure of when it was first built.

The academy was around for a long time, but the big pyramid structure resting between the cliff walls was part of the new academy, built atop the ruins of the original academy.

Ah I see, well maybe at some point next time I update the mod page, (which it really needs;p) I will change it to something a little more relevant.

You asked me to remind you to show some of the ships next to an ISD for size comparison.
