Dear TW fans!
I can't believe that ETW being a game set in enlightenment, age of reason era has such a crap music
(worst in TW series imho). This was the age of Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Handel and other great composers
for God's sake! Certainly you can't compare Jeff van Dyck's great musical score from MTW, RTW and M2TW withthe other composer who created music for ETW - I mean Gregorian chants in 18th - throw me a friggin bone here lol.
I mean Civ4 had great licenced scores from enlightenment era, why Ca haven't done this is beyond me.
Ok, enough is enough, it's time to correct this "mistake". Sadly it's harder to mod music than in RTW or M2TW,
because you can only replace limited tracks with your own and can't add additional ones. I hope CA will release promised modding tools, so we can edit and add more music. Nevertheless, I stuffed many tracks into one, so it should be enough for a while.
In my condensed classical music mod almost all tracks have been changed + I added drumming music for
units marching (fife and drum). Size of mod is about 1,8 Gb (compared to 0,5Gb original). I just can't remember
all tracks I've included, but basically it consists of music by:
*Tchaikovsky (1812 overture for battle with cannons rocks)
and many many other awesome music.
Enjoy and have fun with ETW as I very much do now!
