About this mod

An (Almost) Complete Overhaul for The Witcher 3's exploration music (Also with Taverns Music !)

Fixed all the issues that were present in the previous version, this new 2.0 version is 100% clean and shouldn't have any audio issue (like louder music in some regions, now all the musics have the same volume as the vanilla)

Permissions and credits
Changelogs

Don't forget to Endorse the mod if you enjoyed it, it's a nice way to show love and support for a mod creator ^^

Now with Combat Replacements (yayy scroll down for infos)

Before I continue, i would love to thank Ridog8 for his HUGE help in the making of this mod, he helped me to solve some issues with the original mod, remastered all the songs in this mod and he also helped doing the Non-Replacement version of this mod as he did all the Skellige music part, he's been friendly to me since i started this mod and has always been here for me while we were both working on it, this mod wouldn't be what it is without him that's for sure !

*Changelog from the last Version (2.0) : 
The Toad Prince Combat Music have been changed for another one, as i chose to use that soundtrack for another region, since i liked it quite a lot and wanted to hear it more often
As for the Taverns Music, I changed 4 tracks, that some people didn't like or i didn't find that fitting, for 4 new ones that are more enjoyable, i uploaded it as "Taverns Alt" file in case people wanna choose between the two, still have the same problem with those shitty bards at the wedding quest in HoS...*

As for the Fistfights in the Continent, they will play "Rescuing Shani" from The Witcher :


[OPTIONAL] This mod also replaces the Taverns music (Along with Dandelion's Tavern's Music), check the [Videos] Section for a compilation of different songs you can hear in the taverns, some songs, mainly Nordic ones, play only in Skellige, while others play only in the Continent.

BUT : There is one unsolvable issue with the Taverns Music Replacement, the Bards in the Wedding Quest with Shani in HoS seem to loop at 0,0100 milliseconds into the music infinitely, which is weird, that is why i put it as an optional file, other than that, the taverns musics all play well in-game and have no issue ! 

As for the Taverns Musics, i replaced 4 tracks with these four :
 



HOW TO INSTALL/INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS :

1 - Choose the file you want to download : You can download each file in standalone (Replacer/Non-Replacer, Gwent Music, Taverns/Taverns Alt, Combat Music with Vortex or Manually OR you can just Download the All in One File (Manually only) OR you can use the Vortex Installer version with a Fomod and everything :)

2 - If you Download the All in One file, just choose whatever you want to install between the previously cited mods, and drag&drop them to your Mods Folder

3- Tadaa 


I will add more replacements in the future, like combats music replacements, cutscenes music (like the love scenes music, repetitive and kinda boring imo) or other regions i left untouched, like Wyzima (i liked the music there) I'm taking suggestions, just don't ask for too much :) 

As for a side note, i would like to add that, as i am quite new to modding, i would love it if you guys Gave me feedback on what i can improve, i tested the music myself, and had someone to test it for me for some parts, but i still have yet to test it in the DLCs (i am still in the middle of a LOT of studies and i have no time to actually play, i did this mod because i didn't like to left it unfinished)
