11 comments by Sancho_I_Am on Jun 19th, 2014

Hey Everyone! Sancho Here! 

As you can probably tell, all the departments are hard at work with all the recent posts, but I have one that I've been dying to share with you all!  

Sins of the Prophets is also about to receive our largest music update to date! 

There were a lot of things that were in need of tweaking, and we're hoping this upcoming patch will address them. 

The first problem we encountered with traditional Sins of a Solar Empire music coding is that it had generic tracks that were intended to be neutral songs for all fractions. While this worked for SoaSE, it played havoc with the sound we wanted for the Covenant Empire.  i.e. hearing mild UNSC themed battle tracks or other songs that braced with the vibe we wanted to create. Our solution? Gut the generic tracks and make entirely separate scores for each team! 

The UNSC and the Covenant will each have about 20 new or updated tracks they can call their own! This makes for a unique audio experience for each team. 

Additionally, some of the older tracks have all received a lift in high frequency restrictions and have been remastered. This means a lot of the older tracks you've become accustomed to hearing are now more dynamic and vibrant. Some of them have also received minor or major face lifts due to Waseem Faraz Butt's never ending desire to improve this soundtrack. Check out an older track: Forward Unto Dawn

Lastly, we realized that some tracks were playing at odd times that felt very distracting. So we've updated the emotion triggers for music. This means you will have a music composition that flows better with the pace of the game. 

We'll have another news update when I can post all the tracks as an album. I'm very proud of Waseem Faraz Butt, who has been the driving force behind all of this, and has grown remarkably over the last 4 years as a Composer. Enjoy a new track he finished today called Navigating The Stars!

You people get on my nerves so much.

AS OF NOW THERE IS NO INFINITY!

Unikraken, I think you should put something about the Infinity in the FAQ section so we don't get spammed with this crap as much.

I am quite conflicted. I want this mod to be done already, which I say in the nicest way possible because you guys are doing an absolute fantastic job at this mod. On the other hand, I want you guys to work on it and make the beta the best experience for the fans. We have to remember, the better and more constructive feedback we give to the mod team, the better the final result will be. And along with that, will give the team experience towards the Rebellion mod. Keep working at this mod, and when you guys believe this mod is ready for the public, send that beta our way! I'm soooooo ready to play this mod!

Yes. The Valiant-class is making an appearance. She is currently in development in tandem with the Marathon. We are going to be portraying her as a heavily modified Marathon Cruiser, since there are no definitive pictures of her.
