Star Wars: The New Era was the first large Star Wars modification attempt made on Source Engine. It was produced by Invision Games, a group of over 60 modders and Star Wars fans that have evolved from the Movie Battles 2 community and a mod team working on "Star Wars: Source" before. Star Wars: The New Era was supposed to become a class-based multiplayer experience featuring objective-based scenarios. The project was abandoned in 2013 after all of the remaining team members dropped due to time constraints after starting to study or working in the industry. Initially, the latest state of the mod was planned to be released under Creative Commons license to allow the community to continue the work. Unfortunately, getting in contact with many former team members in order to open-source their work did not work out, so the decision was made not to release any assets without express permit by the respective authors.

They're probably staying true to the VALVe spirit and going by VALVe time.

This doesn't sound like Star Wars at all, and without the right music this mod will only be half as good as its potential.

The change in sound is more than just change in motifs, so obviously this was a move for "artistic freedom".

I guess if this mod is ever released, I'll be replacing the music with the LP rips I have of the original trilogy.

Doesn't sound like Star Wars? Listen to the Main Star Wars theme (Crawl Theme), this track sounds inspired by that, rather than being a duplicate of the already existing Star Wars OST, this mod has decided to make their own unique soundtrack inspired by it, for example, Black Mesa has a completely different soundtrack in which some of them don't sound like Half Life, but would benefit the mod itself, that's the same for New Era.

@the composer: You should look at adding a snare drum line during 1:14's sweeping part.
It would seem make it still seem sort of "battle-like".
