In light of changes done for upcoming Release of ALPHA.5 Version of Beyond Mod, and in order to save a lot of space from my Mediafire folder (with all those soundtracks I might start having problems with that soon I will eventually restructure soundtrack system completely.
As been said before, full 48 race diplomatic music pack will come up with Beyond A.5 release, and will be shared with this project. The pack will be provided in separate form for Alien Immersion Project, And will be merged with Beyond after current 188.8.131.52 diplo location bug will be fixed.
Beyond will use 4 alliance system, invented by talented mister Icemania. I took that system, polished, rebalanced, and swapped things a lot, adding more lore, gameplay depth and influence, in order to receive epic feel of storyline, combining “positive” Anti-Shakturi, Gondorish races into alliance 1, Evil Shakturi friends into Mordorish alliance 2, and 2 other neutral, good and evil race combined alliances, I call them Ideologists and Pragmatics (lore names will be invented later) which are hostile one to other.
New system of 1.02 release packages will introduce new structure of soundrack system, Where race-specific soundtrack will be combined from its alliance track list + race-specific soundtrack which contain only race-unique tracks marked in stripes, and some trait tracks. This means there will be:
4 different, separate alliance-bound playlists (will be provided as separate download)
48 smaller race-specific, included into racial package playlist which will contain trait tracks + unique race tracks.
Combination of those will form new soundtrack system.
The download of race specific soundtrack will be much smaller, easier to upload for me, will take much less space, and will simply augment ANY soundtrack player have installed. Alliance thingy is optional but recoomended thing, it will be also explained , and each race allegiance will be marked for each race.
Perhaps it may be more fuss with current non-existant custom soudtrack support, demanding to install complete ST from 2 folders, but it will save alot of downloading, my mediafire space, and will be more clean and clear.
I also have idea for Elliot and Erik how to implement custom soundtrack support, and i will post request for that soon (again, but now reworked)
Here is it - To Elliot and Erik:
Please add custom soundtrack system, now I reworked my proposition for solution – its very easy.
Theme/Sounds/Music folder could contain folders List01, List02, List03 etc…
Then in racial file there could be parameter
Then for this race music will be played from folders 1 and 3 only
