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

Can't wait for this mod to come out so I can play it! This looks so awesome and will probably tie with Thrawns Revenge as one of my favorite mods, as it is a completely new field that hasn't been delved into or completely overkilled by modders (I'm looking at you Clone Wars mods). You guys do fantastic and amazing work.

I have a few questions:
Will the Sith Starfighter be in the game?
Will Meditation Spheres be in the game, and what will be their function?
What will ground battle consist of? I mean, the Sith Empires military is pretty well fleshed out, but what will the Republic Army look like? All I could find is regular army troopers and rocket-jumpers. Will they have tanks , walkers, droids, or some of each??

Thanks again for working on this phenomenal mod. It will be Fantastic.

I'll answer to the best of my ability, but some things are certainly still in the air at this stage:

-If you mean the 'Sith Starfighter' from KOTOR, then no that will not likely appear in the mod, as it is actually a Republic design that Revan took the blueprints from and produced with the Star Forge. That design doesn't yet exist in 5,000 BBY. We will however have multiple starships for the Sith nonetheless.

-The Sith Meditation Sphere will definitely be present in the game. We hope to have many of the iconic vessels shown in the comics in the mod. We're still working out how it will function, but our early ideas have it being similar to the Death Star in that it may not actively participate in battles, but instead is a movable buff (battle meditation) that effects a large area of the galaxy (So it will be beneficial to have it positioned near the center of the map).

-The Republic has several types of ground troops we can derive unit types from, though fewer vehicles. We may need to bend the source material a bit or invent some plausible vehicles, but they will have comparable vehicles to match the Sith war beast units etc.

Hope that helps!

-Ben/Calithlin, Loremaster

Thanks for the answers. As to the Sith Starfighters, I was referring to the ones from the Hyperspace Wars Starwars.wikia.com

The Sith will have several fighters available for their use.
If you are referring to this fighter craft: Images.wikia.com
Then yes it will be one of the main fighters for the Sith armadas in the early game.
