Wow these sound awesome for Mount & Blade tbh
Well, I'm not very good at making anything futuristic... Sorry for that. I don't think those could fit Empires very well either, now that I've listened to them more... I don't know... maybe I'm not the one to make these themes...
I should have more inspiration to do anything good.. right now I feel that I can't do anything.. or atleast I'm not happy with anything I get done.
Maybe I get something done some other time.
The metal portions of "Winners write the history" Is a futuristic sound. Mixe more metal in to get a feel. An make nothing 100% happy.
Infact I would use small segments of that song as other tracks. To help things fit togeather.
Also, I don't know if it helps, but I compiled a list of every Empires-like song that people suggested for inspiration:
Maybe I can try something "industrial with ochestral"-like the winners write the history-song has... I just totally forgot the concept while working with those tunes.
Usually I do music just for the music, so I don't set any goals.. something for me to learn, maybe?
Direction cant hurt.
why istn tottla annihilation in that list
I suspect because you're lazy. It is a wiki, isn't it? :D
Touché, my friend named after a type of morning breakfast i have sadly never tried, touché...
Thank you Blizzerd, I really appreciate every time somebody contributes to the wiki.
Also, you may want to listen to some of this: http://www.last.fm/music/Christiaan+Bakker/Empires
He said he's not happy with a number of them (no need to heavily critique them), but at least it gives you something to listen to.
I am Impressed with there exsistance sofar I'll listen to all of them soon.
Look at the wiki page -- he IS back
i think a celebration is in place
I was thinking about the anthem-thing... I was certain, that the factions should have their own anthems, but I don't think so anymore... It's hard to imagine "national" anthems to factions of an futuristic Empire after all.
I think the concept is good as it is now.. it's good to know wether you win or lose when the music comes in at the end of a round. Some parts of my song "winners write the history" could be remixed to be used as themes for the winner team and the defeated team.
Just throwing some ideas...
Just get some awesome 30 second clips
There are the clips. If you want, you can download them, rename them simply "win" and "lose" and then rename the original files in Empires folder "sound/common/music" and copy those songs in there. That way you can know the best how it fits the game... I'm definately not the person to judge wether those themes suit the game or not.
Feedback is always welcome.
I like em. lets get a full set. and if possible work in the intro theme into map start.
I also like them, escept the winner's theme feels like it ends a bit abruptly.
I noticed that, too.. maybe I'll make it a bit longer and fade slowly... the map end is longer than I though it was... maybe it's because of all the music spam I here most of the time :D
I'll continue when I have the time.
I just wanted to stop by and say hi to everyone.
Tracks are in the making.
