-Shortest of Descriptions-

This mod is all about music. I write and write and write and write, playtest and upload the result for the world to hopefully enjoy. It comes as a regular version, adding music to the original Skyrim music or as a replacer version, which disables (not deletes) the original music. Currently this mod has 60 tracks or 3 hours, 43 minutes and 53 seconds of music. There is an option to donate to the mod using Paypal, 50% of which will go to charity.

INSTRUCTION FOR NEW CUSTOMERS:

Download the mod and unzip it to your skyrim data folder. Path = Valve/Steam/SteamApps/common/skyrim/data/

Upon startup, go to DATA FILES in the launcher and tick AdditionalMusicProject.esp OR AdditionalMusicProjectReplacer.esp (NEVER BOTH!!) depending on whether you want the vanilla music to be disabled or not. Using the replacer version DOES NOT delete the original music, it just disables it.

- Original Description -

The esp offered here contains 30 tracks I've written so far as additional material to the music of Skyrim. In the future, this collection will be updated with new tracks, instead of releasing seperate packs.

As an optional file, there is a small guide available explaining how to tweak this mod with the Creation Kit.

As another optional file: the mp3's, good for Oblivion and media players.

The aim of the Skyrim Additional Music Project is to make music that doesn't stray very far from the music of the Elder Scrolls and even when it does, it should be more an expansion than an overhaul. It aims to add music and not really to replace it, but I've made a replacer as it was requested.

The filepath for the xwm's (Skyrim's version of mp3's) should be /data/music/Additional Music Collection. The .esp goes in the /data folder.

This is a hobby of mine, not a profession, please keep that in mind :). Constructive feedback, comments, suggestions and questions are always welcome.

The music in this mod is released under the http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0

- An Easy Way To Check If It Works -

Before you know you're going to have a dragon encounter, or bandit raid or somesuch, save the game. Load it and play until you have the confrontation with the dragon. If you haven't heard a new track after anywhere between 7 and 10 tries, it's not working. The game picks the tracks at random, but after 10 tries you can rule out bad luck.

- The Tracks -

This mod contains
10 Combat tracks (distinction between dragon and combat, some overlap)
3 Dungeon tracks
17 Exploring tracks (roughly put, there is a distinction between town, day, morning, dusk and night)

listed here are the ten newest tracks. There is a full youtube playlist here .

COMBAT (Dragon or otherwise)

Tempest
Army Of One
Definitely Time For Heroics

EXPLORING (Night, Dusk, Morning, Day, Town)

Dreamweaver
Morning Glory
Eternitybells
The Awe Of God Fearing Men
A Chorus Of Sneezing Angels
Surrounded By History
On A Lighter Note

Some of the older ones:

Dragon Combat

Trial By Fire

Combat

For Old Time's Sake

Exploring

Frostfall

The Quiet Life

Town

Peaceful Days Remembered

Dungeon

The Eerie Places

Enjoy!

No_Aardvarks_Allowed for the great tutorial and the awesome Personalized Music Mod , in which you can also use the xwm's from this mod.


- Old Updates -

June 19th: NEW VERSION AVAILABLE

Version 1.3 of the mod is released! The Deluxe version contains the mp3 of every track (hence the large file).

Now this mod contains 44 tracks, which translates to roughly 2 hours and 45 minutes of music. This mod is available as a replacer or as an add-on version.

Some of the new stuff :

Forging A Hero
Transcendency
Haunted
The Dance Of Death

January 18th: IMPORTANT UPDATE

Dear users, I've altered the file to Additional Music Project. Now the folder will be music/Additional Music Project and the esp's name will be Additional Music Project. Sorry for the bouncy behavior but after releasing this mod on Steam, some tweaking was required. I do this now in order to smoothen the updates in the months to come when new music arrives.

The old esp and folder (Additional Music Collection) will not be updated, so bite the bullet now and redownload :). Sorry for the inconvenience, organizing isn't my strong suit, yet ;).

A replacer version is in the works, but I'm going to test it myself before releasing it.

I've also started on new material, but due to an extremely busy professional life, things are moving way too slow. I'm aiming for an update in March. (Didn't make it, it will take a long while longer... :()

June 14th IMPORTANT UPDATE

There is a 'beta' update available in the download section under Update Files. This update contains 7 new exploring tracks. You need to download the June 2013 update file and extract it somewhere (preferably desktop) and copy the new xwm's manually to the Valve/Steam/SteamApps/common/skyrim/Data/Music/AdditionalMusicProject directory. Also download the new .esp and just overwrite the old one.

For the replacer version it's a bit different. I've made a seperate .esp called AddtionalMusicProjectReplacer1_2b.esp. This was as a precaution and it will now show up as a seperate .esp in your data files in the launcher. When the update becomes definitive, I'll put up an .esp that overwrites the regular one. When playing the game, ONLY USE ONE OF THE ESP's! So untick AddtionalMusicReplacer.esp and tick AddtionalMusicReplacer1_2b.esp!

To hear the previews go here and look for track 31 through 37. (Bottom of the playlist)

September 17th: VERSION 1_4 AVAILABLE

The new version is out, bringing the total to 50 tracks and 'finally' crossing the 3 hour mark.
As with 1_3, the mod comes in two forms, the regular and Deluxe version. The latter has the mp3's of every track in there too (not at all relevant for the game itself, just for media players and such). I haven't had a lot of time testing it, so please share your thoughts in the comment section.

April 11th: Small update with two tracks and volume + assignment fixes. When you download this, just extract the rar file tot the /data folder and overwrite anything your pc asks you to. This is an update for the replacer version only and you require 1_5 for this to work!.

March 24st: VERSION 1_5 AVAILABLE FOR TRY OUT

I've uploaded an update which contains 5 more tracks: One dungeon track, two city themed tracks and two nighttime tracks. The main and Deluxe file have been updated and there is also an update available for 1_4 users. Consult the guides a few paragraphs down. The MP3 seperate download is available as well. The update is for the replacer as well as the regular version.

IF YOU ARE UPDATING FROM 1_3

Manually add the 6 new tracks to the Data/Music/Additional Music Project folder and replace the ESP's in your data folder with the ones you have got in there now. This update introduces new music to the keeps as well, which is a first for me :).

4 of the 6 new tracks:

Forest daydwelling
Townsy dreamy
Combat
For evening strolls
