    Just wondering if anyone knows if there is a thread for music submission's for Player owned towns. I know the idea has been talked about but is there a place for it yet?

    This is a haunting piece I custom made and used all my own sounds. I used noteflight to write the score and then Audacity to edit it with my own sound effects that I made myself also. It is a rough draft but I hope to improve on these sounds for my player owned town. Let me know what you think.

    Oh Very nice Ravicus. Nice and erie. I have been so hoping for some erie atmosphere in SOTA to break up the feel of the game since their is a big deal on survival and suspenseful types of game right now. It is just the right timing to have some of that feel joing the ranks of the game. I rmember playing games like 'Shivers', 'Phantasmagoria', and 'Ripper' and the music would set the stage and of course sound effects. If you can add a few more in there and still get it approved, like dripping water, or a squeaky door opening, just to be sneaky that is. The Access Software game called "Countdown" was truly scary for those days that is, but I didn't hear as much music in when I looked it up. Anyway I love your song as is truly, just if you wanted thoughts, which you said you did lol;)

    Not yet, Ravicus. However, Starr Long will make an announcement when that time comes. I was discussing it with him a few weeks ago prior to his vacation. To quote Starr directly, "Don't lawyer me bro," but I think that announcement is fairly close to happening. I'm sure he'll be swamped with tasks upon his return, but I know that it's in the works.

    Thank You Majoria! I will work on more effects. :) I love trying to create them. I have some more music I made but it has some open source music in it. I could technically use it but I do not want to bother with legalities. I just will do my own unique thing haha!

    Yes I understand. For Wizards' rest we had a free song that we really like, but having to go through channels to get a song will be difficult in many cases to get the song in the game, but I guess there has to be some kinds of limits to things for unknown reasons.:)

    That sounds great, Ravicus. May I ask what software you're using? (In case there are other PoT owners who might like to try their hand at this as well.)

    I actually wrote the score at noteflight.com. Then I used Audacity to do the effects. It is really fun to mess around with these programs. :)

    Best move, I think, would be to submit the music to Holt and Firelotus in a PM. That way Holt can review the song ahead of time. Note that at this point we don't have any specifics about custom POT music, so we don't have a clear path forward beyond that point, but that's an excellent "headstart" to the process.

    Cool idea, I always wanted there to be custom music tiles in UO for your house, it never happened, but custom music for your town, as long as it's good quality I would hope they'd approve it. I mention second life too much, so much people probably think I play it, I don't, I played it 1 week but, in that game you can stream your own radio station from your house plot which is crazy. I'd prefer something along these lines, custom approved POT music.

    I like the piece, it has character. Venturing into an uncharted town it'd be nice to hear a change like this.

    Thank you sir. That is good to hear! I know its not much like the other great music that has been submitted, but I agree, We need some ominous evil music for adventuring :)

    It's not so much a matter of not liking it :) It's just too Earth sounding. Lord British requires heavily melody driven, medieval/early-renaissance sound, or some have snuck through that are epic fantasy. Check out soundcloud.com/poetscircle for references.

    Doesn't custom music for a PoT fall into the
    Advanced customizing $10k + and not the current template approach?
