I’ve seen some posts around about the OST of 4.0. People talking about what ambient music should be added, or what not. But what kind of music would you like to hear in the game that isn’t particularly just ambient noises? Or better yet, what do you think would be a good song for a 4.0 release trailer? etc?
I’d point at a lot of game trailers for some inspiration. Borderlands 1 and Dying Light trailer were awesome, and the music synced up pretty great (Especially DL). What other trailers do you think are great / nelson should take notes of?
I believe that Unturned relies somewhat heavily on surrounding noise and sounds as it’s a survival game after all: most of the time you’d be on your toes listening for footsteps on the floor above you or freezing and ducking after you’ve heard gunshots in the distance or even hearing players speaking in voice chat. Ambient music would kinda prevent you from taking advantage of your surrounding sounds and might actually mislead you into hearing false things, no matter how low the volume might be. But that’s just my opinion and I have no problem at all if the ambient music was implemented with an option to turn it off/on.
I mean in general this topic is super subjective (which is why I think it should be an option) because some people like eerie soundtracks that make you shit bricks, and some like to listen as hard as they can for any clue to where the thing hunting you is, but only hearing your heart pounding. Also in downtime in unturned I usually just listen to actual music while doing chill things, and have a macro to pause it.
Also, I know nothing about copyright, would it be illegal for nelson to just nab some creepy osts off the internet? I feel like a original soundtrack would cost alot to hire someone and take along time to produce one that actually sounded good.
The Germany theme is amazing.
If you could include the iconic part of the main theme at the end, that would be EXCELLENT music for a trailer.
On the other hand, TheShadyOrchestra’s two Unturned remixes are also good.
Speaking of, I do like how Unturned has consistently used a forefront piano in most of it’s trailers and music. I’d like to see such remain throughout the game into 4.x with main menu music, trailer, in-game music maybe, etc.
Also side note: I’d like to see some light piano music throughout normal gameplay that the player may not notice, but adds to the scene. Just how in minecraft players may not notice the faint music in the background, but it definitely makes the mood.
