Music of the Mod

News 11 comments

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

Don't rush... That very question is what destroyed propper code in retail games...Such as battlefield 4, and most of the recent COD Franchise releases... (3months of code.....You kidding me? Most mods take longer than to develop...and they're buggy as crap, you expect a full game to work better than that??? :O )

Keep up the awesome work... Loving these audio's

Ty again Kharcov and crew :)

I know, I want this to rival Thrawn's Revenge but I love this era and really want to play it! Is it possible to make a diplomacy panel so I don't have to be in an eternal war with the Sith?

I'm aiming for top quality and content, I hope that it rivals anything out there, however I don't intend to Top any other mods, just craft to the best of my abilities.

Will the Dark Reaper make an appearance? Wookie says that it was built for the Great Hyperspace War but if I remember the game it was from correctly Ulic Qel-Droma was the one who killed it. So that would make it 1,000 years later. Is this a flaw in the game or am I remembering things incorrectly?

It was built by Naga sadow around 5000BBY at the time of the hyperspace wars. It was destroyed some 1000 years or so later...
Fear not, It will be in the mod.

I lied, it was destroyed like 5000 years later. It was
Found" by Ulic 1000 years after it's construction.
