Nobion has been working overtime overhauling the audio experience on DSEC9. We are delighted and thankful for the wonderful job he has done. In his own words:
I’ve had the pleasure of providing the music for DSEC which has been running since June 2021. While I managed to make a fair number of tracks, I did not see my overall vision become reality with the release, so not long after, I began working on what I call “The DSEC Music overhaul”.
The work is finished, and you will be able to log in and enjoy it today! but first a few words about the music & the thoughts behind it. Until now, the soundtrack featured around 20 tracks, these were split between the 3 Zones, but from now on, the whole soundtrack will be shared between all zones!
The soundtrack has been upgraded to feature not only songs but also more “atmospheric” tracks that are typically slower and can feature environmental elements (wind, humming, etc.) in total the soundtrack now features 30 songs and 30 atmospheric songs for a combined playlist of 60 tracks! to put that into perspective, it’s 2.8 hours of continuous music!
For the older players, you might even notice a few very nostalgic sounds make an appearance throughout the soundtrack
Inspirations come from Project Entropia, Entropia Universe, The Omikron Soul, and multiple other sources. You will experience some tracks that sound very Project Entropia’ish, while others have their unique style or other recognizable influences.
Due to some technical circumstances, the music is mixed so it always plays the song first, and fades into an atmospheric song, so teleporting in and out to shift songs in a search to experience the complete soundtrack will not be possible
New Codex Missions have been added for the following Mob Classes on DSEC9:
- Cult of Shut’thend
- Spawn of Cthylla and Cthylla
THE SIGHT OF CTHYLLA
A rare laser sight “The Sight of Cthylla” is possible to be looted during the Dynamic Event at The Pyramid of Shut’thend.
Over the past few months we have been collecting feedback from the community on the creature spawns on Toulan. With this feedback we have reorganized creature spawns across Planet Toulan. We have attempted to group the creature spawns by maturity and type to improve the hunting experience. This is an ongoing effort and we will continue to make tweaks in the future based on feedback.
THE KHAFFASH TERMINATOR
Players now have a choice of 3 options at the repeatable stage of the Khaffash Terminator Mission at the Narian Temple:
