Thread: Old Istarian Ambiance

  1. #1

    Default Old Istarian Ambiance

    Why this MOD?

    Recently, Virtrium has modified the default ambiance musics for something more lighthearted. However, as much as I enjoy the tradeskill musics, I don't feel they fit a world at war on the verge of destruction by undead armies and I prefer keeping them for the rare oasis of safety that are the Imperial workshops.
    Also, ambiance musics don't loop anymore and it sounds weird to me to suddenly change music when you stay at the same place.

    If you prefer the new fashion for musics, then don't install it.



    What does this MOD do?

    It reverts the default ambiance musics to dungeon musics. The ambiance musics also loop again.
    However, everything wasn't reverted to old fashion: tavern musics (Bristugo, Dalimond...) now have a smaller playlist which is not exactly the same that Imperial workshops anymore.

    This MOD is meant to be updated with future client files.



    How to install it?

    Just extract the archive into your Istaria folder.


    v1.0.0 (January 09, 2018)
    ===================

    - Initial release.
    - Based on v395.110.0 official client files.
    - Changes from official files:

    NOTE: as this MOD is based on latest Blight client, Live players should wait next client patch before installing it (or patch to Blight now).

    Thank you Firebrand! I've actually done some tweaking myself, although perhaps... not as comprehensively as you. I did find it unfitting as well for the guitar music to be playing... well, everywhere... not to mention, I never liked those guitar songs anyhow, so I changed all of them out too.

    I'm glad you enjoy it.

    I was told by devs that they removed looping as a bug fix, because they don't want to force you to listen to the same music if you stay at the same spot. Listening for the same music for a long time if I don't move doesn't bother me, but if people prefer a "no loop" version of the file, just tell me: I can make one as well.

    As client v395.110.1 is now on Live shards (sooner than I expected), you can use it on regular shards.

    Small update, mainly to fix a definition with a wrong named .mp3. Mod file also looks better if you want to dig into it and do your own customization.


    v1.0.1 (January 18, 2018)
    ===================

    - Fixed default_mus by changing mus_amb_forest.mp3 to forest_mus_06.mp3.
    - Improved text indentation, code is now more readable for other modders wanting to have a look to it (not important for regular players).

    With new changes with Istaria client, I have updated my Mod. There should have been a v1.0.4 version, but I never published it... and I don't remember why, maybe I just forgot to to it.

    Anyway, the new music for Land of Exile and Draak is supported.
    With official client, the new music in Chiconis has been removed to be added to some other specific places as Karane the Historian or Vladtmordt the Chronicler as the Peaceful Dragon ambiance. It's now supported. However, the music is still in the Chiconis playlist with the Mod, I haven't removed it.



    v1.0.5 (January 19, 2019)
    ===================

    - Peaceful Dragon ambiance music is now supported to match v397.1.8 Live clent.


    v1.0.4 (December 15, 2018)
    =====================

    - New music for Draak and Land of Exile by YagamiFoxClaw/Shawn Badolian which has been added to v397.19.2 official Blight client is now supported.
