Title: [0.9a] Galatia Complete [1.5] - Galactic Space Music Mod
Post by: Computica on January 13, 2013, 04:26:30 PM
Summary
Galatia Complete is the Ultimate space faring music collection for Starsector. Adds a grand total of 126 pieces of music totaling to over 7.5 hours of listening time.

The tracks are hand picked and put together to increase immersion. Many of the tracks are space orchestra style. Some have light chorus vocals with no words. Some of them are ambient and very many of them are instrumental. There won't be any tracks that will break immersion; so this means there are no rap, metal, pop, dub-step, and jazz music. Title music is calm and exciting; campaign music is exploratory and calming; battle music builds up to be thrilling and epic.

It works just like any other mod you'd install and will not play the original two repetitive Starsector music tracks.

Compatibility
I made the mod move later in the load order, it should be fine as long as no other music mods supercede it.

@Chronosfear
No Problem.

@Romeo_One
Will that mess with mod sounds? Or just replace the 3 music entries I changed?

Edit:
I believe it replaces the entire file.

Post by: banehunter on February 09, 2013, 10:19:58 PM
This compilation is pretty solid, but my main gripe that starsector combat is bit too fast paced for some of the slow moving build-up of the combat tracks of other space games. Then again its just my opinion, so +1 anyway.
Title: Re: [1.0] Galatia Complete - Galactic Space Music Mod

I've been told that I needed to update the mod; I will when I get my new computer built.

OK I just updated my music collection mod. No new tracks were added I just removed the music.bin format that I used previously and updated the sound.json to split half the campaign tracks for hyperspace. I also re-ordered some tracks that were too slow for battle.

This is a complete mod, though I may make a add-on since my 4x Space Music Library has grown exponentially since 2013. I'd appreciate if this was brought to the Mod Index by a Admin.

Post by: Hussar on May 04, 2017, 08:21:45 AM
Interesting mod, though quite harsh on the "first contact". By which I mean the music change is so drastic it's like "alien" for a while. It also appears to be few steps louder than vanilla, so I had to turn the music down from 75% down to 5% to make it more fit in line. But after a while... huh...

I enjoy it. It's different, that's for sure. But some tracks are really good. If someone's going for long explorations they'll definitely get the most out of this little mod - but if someone's jumping between stations/other, the music will be cutting quite a lot so there's that.

But it's a good mod. I like it.

Anyways, I will try this as soon as I get home :D
thanks.

(can I suggest you port this mod to stellaris also? there is a lack of good music mods there)

I guess my fame knows no bounds lol you caught a piece of what I do on my spare time lol. Unfortunately I don't have Stellaris but probably will once I get it. Its a Paradox game so I know how those tend to be.

Also anyone who wants to make a mirror link be my guest, my dropbox can handle only so much traffic.

When I get back home I'll up it to my google drive or media fire. Dropbox is just the least hassle free.

Yeah a lot of the tracks will get stuck in your head, I'll def nake an add-on later.

Post by: Computica on May 05, 2017, 10:33:06 PM
I just uploaded it to my mediafire. Expect 243 more songs to come in as add-ons! Maybe a bit less after I sort through them.

EDIT:
It's just over 19 hours of more music, I'm sure I'll be splitting them up since my space music library has immensely grown. I'll try to give them a kinda theme.

EDIT 2:
I'm actually going to choose the true gems from the rest of my collection, honestly not too proud of the other half of the tracks. The bulk of them work well as short snippets of filler before much better tracks so I may sort them and upload those as filler compilations later. Though for now I'll make something more comparable but different from Galatia.

How can i add my own music into the game?
Also, will you add some combat music?
Title: Re: [0.8a] Galatia Complete [1.2] - Galactic Space Music Mod
Post by: Computica on May 06, 2017, 02:08:31 AM
You can easily add, replace, and remove music if you edit the sound.json inside my music mod. I advise you use a editor like notepad++ and follow the format I have in the mod.

Yes I have more combat tracks planned.

There is a track I've gotten a few times since installing this mod that's a repetitive click sound. It plays when I'm just running around and not in battle. Very annoying.

Funny thing is that I couldn't locate it in the mods collection of ogg files. Must of missed it. Which one is it so I can delete it?

This was one of the first mods I downloaded when I got done playing in Corvus SS and it was awesome. I am so happy to have it back man! xD
I also have a question. Where do you get your music from (I've been trying ti figure out some music for Metelson's, even if it's just for stations.)

I'm having the same problem (I've checked all the ogg files in Audio Plus too, it's not one of those), maybe it's not playing correctly?  Still doesn't help find which one it is though - I did notice after a minute or so the weird clicking stops and it changes, I guess I'll try to remember what that part sounds like and see if I can find it in one of them.
Title: Re: [0.8a] Galatia Complete [1.2] - Galactic Space Music Mod
Post by: Computica on May 07, 2017, 05:28:51 PM
Yeah if you all can find it let me know. All the tracks are in OGG Vorbis Varible format. I'm a slight audiophile so I can tell that Vorbis sound fomat usally is better quality wise than Mpeg3 format in the same size constraints.

If you use a program like mp3 tag converter or have windows os and use the k-lite codec pack you will be able to see which artists some of the tracks are from.

The next music pack will have to be played with for several hours while I decide what works and what doesn't. This one is much diffrent and detaches itself from the space opera feel. I'll keep you posted.

Post by: Krelian on May 07, 2017, 08:49:49 PM
Have been playing with the mod... nothing to say.. excelent taste in music. Perfect.
The only slight annoyance is the lack of normalization, and the fact that overall they are really loud compared to the vanilla music, but nothing that lowering music to 30% fix.
Title: Re: [0.8a] Galatia Complete [1.2] - Galactic Space Music Mod
Post by: Computica on May 08, 2017, 03:41:42 AM
I'm going to making a Normalization update and releasing a patch soon for those who already have version 1.2. I can't find any click sounds in a song but if you all find it let me know.

EDIT:
OK 1.4 is up, I listened to all the tracks and couldn't find any clicking sounds. Other than the new tracks they have been Normalized around Vanilla volume levels so feel free to turn your music back up. I may not make another music mod, I'll probably keep adding to this one but honestly there isn't much I want to add at the moment.
Title: Re: [0.8a] Galatia Complete [1.4] - Galactic Space Music Mod

Could one ask for a track list, possibly? I wouldn't mind knowing where quite a lot of these (even some specific) songs originally come from :)

Huh, so far I have actually even more tone down the music... But if you normalized the volumes of all of them to one level, then that's okay. :)

To add your own songs to be played, do the files need to be converted to the .omm format? I tried adding files as .mp3s and they never came up and it seem that they would interfere with the mod. I Was trying to add the XCOM: Enemy unknown/within combat themes.

Thanks!

The songs are using OGG Vorbis format and no they can be in MP3 format you just have to edit the sound.json file entires. Make sure you have the correct file extensionl listed like it is on the music file.

Overall its not my choice in mod list conciderating this is more a fantasy s-f than industrial s-f that starsector is (there is also a jungle s-f in existance btw), but some of those i would investigate further...as are quite interesting and enjoyable to listen.

Great things about mods...that we can adjust our own experiance...its like drugs for game...some dev like it, some not, but its always our HDD & time space and command, and always yield terrible results if not used responsibly xD

I never get to hear any new soundtrack from this mod, weird. Seem like BR soundtrack from audio plus mod override it. The main menu track work btw. Idk why the rest didn't play.

*Look like Audio Plus got priority over Galactics. Only main menu track that is play, the rest never get to shine.
Title: Re: [0.8.1a] Galatia Complete [1.4] - Galactic Space Music Mod
Post by: Computica on February 08, 2018, 09:05:03 AM
Audio Plus added a few tracks which overwrite the default list, its a easy thing to fix. I think the Audio Plus mod should of only messed with sound effects.
Title: Re: [0.8.1a] Galatia Complete [1.4] - Galactic Space Music Mod
Post by: MesoTroniK on February 08, 2018, 11:35:45 PM
The only way to add music, is to override within each list unfortunately (except faction interaction tracks, these can be added without conflict). So this is also why vanilla music must be added back to any mod that adds music within itself. This is also the primary reason why Audio Plus exists, to make the music from all the faction mods that add unique songs that were made specifically for them... Play together properly instead of one faction mod taking priority and only using its music.

It also improving sound effects, is a bonus.

Post by: Computica on February 09, 2018, 08:36:38 AM
It is easy to add or remove the music entries used in Audio Plus. The music in my mod has been perfectly volume adjusted on a track by track basis. I hadn't listened to much of the music added by mods but I made sure the music put in this pack was quite consistent depending on the scenario. Remember there are 110 unique tracks of music here so if your tired of the same music track for the 16th time this will defenitly improve on that.

OK so there needs to be a compatibility patch released for Audio Plus because any changes I make won't take any effect if Audio Plus is in your mod list. The quickest way to make it so only the music from my mod plays and still have the sounds from Audio Plus is to change the name in the 'mod_info.json' for Galatia Complete.

Code
"name":"Galatia Complete"
----to----
"name":"ZZ Galatia Complete"
The author of Audio Plus decided to super-cede other mods and this should put Galatia back up under it since it only changes music. You will still have the sound effect changes from Audio Plus

This mod will be updated with more music and to be out of the box able to overwrite music added by mods such as Audio Plus.

EDIT:
OK 1.5 Update is up; Wasn't anything I needed to change other than moving the mod later in the mod list, I also added 16 new tracks and changed the defeat music.

EDIT2:
Mod might be getting taken down, Someone is saying I don't have permission to use certain tracks of music, which tracks I am not sure.

XCOM 2 has a music mod that uses complete soundtrack of Deux Ex and other soundtracks.
XCOM EU/EW had a music mod where people would just use anything they liked to play in their game.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1122426692

Only one thing bothers other creators, and that is if you are making money using their soundtracks which you don't.
So i don't see the problem here.

I guess I didn't offer much explanation on everyone else's end. Basicly the call came down from a admin here on the forum. Everything except the music from update 1.5 I got permission to use. I'm currently in the process of gettimg permission to use the 17 added tracks in 1.5. 1.4 is basicly royalty free music. In the mean time I'm looking for more tracks that I can add that I have permission to use.

No. Neither does it make it OK if no $ is made from it.

Why not just list what each song is? There seems to be a lot of confusion over the music in this mod.

The only tracks I can probably come up with a name for are the most recent additions from 1.5 the others were all royalty free from various collections I have from over the past 20 years with exceptions of about 12. But this really isn't about the names of would-be tracks and more about persmission.

Yeah, but if the claimant can't even give you the name of the song that is supposedly copyrighted, how can the claim be serious?

You should put it up for download until the person contacts you directly.

Nobody is stealing anything and that what makes it OK.
Electronic Arts even allowed the creation of Renegade X as long as it doesn't make any profit.
Just as an example the length some would go and it's still fine with the actual owner of the IP.
This is EA we are talking about, the money hungry corporate monster.

This mod has some unknown fellow's music, big woah!
The music isn't being distributed, it isn't being paid for, hell we don't even have the tracklist to begin with or a way to cut it out. Not that anyone would go such a length.
So relax, no need to call people thieves. It's called modding.

P.S Another example is Third Age mod for Medieval Total War 2 that uses LOTR music, in fair use which means the allowed playtime.
So another approach would be editing and cutting the run time of the alleged "stolen" tracks down to fair use run time.

Or just cut them out and let whoever has a problem with it to remain unknown.

I personally don't use this mod, i just find it silly to be removed because of a such a minute detail.

For now I want everyone to just be patient, I'm going to put up a trimmed down version of the mod after I get permission to ise some newer tracks.

You should put it up for download until the person contacts you directly.

Just touching on this point, as it seems to summarise a common viewpoint expressed in this thread by some; for clarity:

Regardless of legalities (which I imagine would strongly suggest this is a bad idea), the forum needs permissions in place when creative works are being distributed via the forum.

It’s never been enough for sprites to ‘wait for a complaint’ (we have been excellent at working together / self-policing to make sure graphical art is not borrowed outside terms of original creation); and it isn’t enough for audio either.

It’s obviously complicated in the case of historical compilations such as this - but regardless of what we may think about intent / feelings of creator - it just is NOT ENOUGH to assume and we must have EXPRESS permission in place.

Just going to put it out there, I *REALLY* want this mod ASAP, but I'd rather it be (re)posted with no risk of being taken down due to copyright strike or what have you a bit later than right now with the chance (good one considering today's fun-fun legal environment) that it'll be permanently shut down due to copyright infringement.

I'm looking forward to this, but I can wait if it means it's reposted with more work done on it in the interim of working out all the legalese.  Take your time man, don't let us pressure you into releasing it immediately, short-term gain for long-term loss and all that.

All I ask is that the mod be updated/refined/added to in the meantime, maybe had a compatibility pass done on it to ensure that it'll play nice with the other popular mods.

I got several permissions for the tracks that weren't royalty free. Expect a new release from me next month after I add a few more tracks.

So, um, I hate to be the guy to ask, but next month was 4 months ago, any idea when the ETA of the mod is?

thank you for taking the effort to:

a) credit the source for each piece and gain permission...it is really important for creatives to keep ownership of their stuff and for people to find them. 

I would never had heard of Max Corbacho (for example) and he would have never gotten my $70 for buying nearly his entire collection of space ambient tunes had I not found them via a youtuber (https://www.youtube.com/user/RaverJedi). 

Similarly, I look forward to finding (and hopefully matching) on the good tunes from your collection so that I can find more about that artist.

b) embark on a quest to add curated space battle/ambient music to one of my fave games.

So far I had to remove a lot of tracks, but I would advise you all look up Lorn @Bandcamp and "In Space" by Royksopp. Those are the pieces of music you all have probably heard which I can't post here until I get permission. I could probably get permission from Lorn but I advise you all check out and buy his music for yourself.

How many tracks did you have to remove out of the total?  Were they just filler or some of the more integral content of the mod?  I'm just asking because I always appreciate more content in just about anything, so hearing you had to remove "a lot of tracks" from a mod such as this is always a bit of a downer for me, but I do hope you were still able to retain the majority of your content.

Sorry I haven't been modding lately just messing with rendering, when I get the chance to start playing Starsector again I'll definitely post a update.

EDIT:
Just got several permissions over the weekend; will be adding some of the tracks I originally removed. 8)

Could you at least post a link to the old version until you have all the permissions for the new one?

I dunno why you people make such a fuss about music. Everything's allowed to be used as long as there's no profit from it.
The mod author doesn't want any money in exchange for making this mod, so the copyrighted songs can be used.

But hey it's the mod author's decision so i'm not in any position to criticize. Would like to see the link getting posted back up tho.

That's not how copyright works at all and it would be great to not have another thread war started about it.

Oh boy one of the tracks sounds like one obscure song I heard once like 10 years ago. What if they end up finding about this niche space battle game and *gasp* sue the devs!

Better just blanket ban all music mods or even any non-utility mod while at it.

Using stuff without permission is neither ok nor legal. It sounds like the OP is trying to do the right thing here, and that's commendable.

Arguing about copyright in this thread is off-topic, so please don't do it. If there's more discussion about it here, warnings/bans/etc will be handed out as appropriate - not for talking about it, but for ignoring a moderator/admin request to keep the thread on-topic.

Also, please don't argue about copyright in other threads - it's been a trend in a couple of similar threads. Frankly, I don't have a lot of patience left for the derails it creates, and it's always a negative for the thread.

Thank you for your cooperation.

be glad when this mod is posted!  The vanilla tracks can get a bit wearing after several days.

Is there now a version that is good to use? I dont mind if it has less tracks as the original and if it gets updated if new permissions arrive but... please give me something. xD
