[K1] Cantina 3956 BBY - Song for the Cantina
This mod change the background music [BGM] played inside Javyar's Cantina to more of a Cyberpunk-esque vibe.
# Background #
A cantina, also known as a saloon or bar, was a place where spacers, smugglers, and other denizens of the nearby area came to drink and play board and card games, such as pazaak or sabacc. Cantinas were located on almost every major planet and were often a center of criminal activity such as smuggling and spice trading. Many cantinas provided live entertainment in the form of musicians and dancers. Gambling was also popular in these locales. The main attractions, however, were the beverages served by mixocologists or automixers, and the opportunity to meet friends or business associates (illicit or otherwise). - Wookieepedia
For me who playthrough most of Taris' side-quests, spending 80% of the time in the cantina is inevitable. Reporting to Zax about the bounties, hunting credits from dueling, and maybe just to crashed on the sofa and enjoying the view of all the hot girls inside the cantina is a routine. But I got bored with the music sometimes, so I thought; why not make one?
Influenced by a mod which change the cantina music to the original cantina music from "A New Hope" and a reddit user; RomMitney, whom make some really cool cantina style music, this mod was made then.
# About this Mod #
This mod change the background music [BGM] played inside Javyar's Cantina to a unique Cyberpunk-esque vibe
With this mod installed you will have every cantina [module] in the game their own unique music
I write and then create the song using FL Studio 12 PE. The song itself called "Tainted Love"
Easter Egg: The song was included in "Lower City Movement #3", the third issues from a compilation of Lower City obscure artists which is released in 4001 BBY
# Final Remarks #
This mod works best with Sith Holocron's "Animated Cantina Sign for KotOR 1" installed, as the animated-broken-blipping-sign gives you that lively feeling inside the cantina so, I'd recommend you to use that mod in conjunction with this.
There's always room for improvements - critiques, comments, suggestions, questions and feedbacks for the next update are much appreciated - PM, write them on my feed or leave any on the mod's page as you please. And thank you! for downloading, and playing this mod.
Hope you enjoy the mod as much as I do!
Installation: choose Install option then hit the [Install Mod ->] button!
Previous version users may want to replace the previously installed mus_area_cant2.mp3 with the backed-up vanilla, so the Anchorhead's Cantina will play its original "Cantina Techno" theme
Uninstallation: run the installer [TSLPatcher.exe], and choose Uninstall option
If you want to replace the music with something else your preferences, you can rename the relevant music to mus_theme_eb01 -either MP3 or WAV format should work- and then drop it to 'streammusic' folder
Compatibility: will be compatible with mostly anything. Unless with a mod that force-overrides tar_m03ae.mod and ambientmusic.2da or coincidentally file-name conflicted
For this mod to be effective you should at least load a saved game before entering the Javyar's Cantina [tar_m03ae] module
The mod was play-tested with KotOR 1 Restoration/K1R and K1:Community Patch/K1CP installed and is compatible with them
Redistribution: I'm asking you not to redistribute the mod - I'd like to stay in touch with them so I know where to provide supports. Though, you could use the music for your school and/or mod project or anything that is non-commercial. You don't have to ask for permission - but your generous intention is very much welcome. I'd love to know what others are up too, particularly if my work are included. Credits to me is always a warm welcome, welcome.
