We're still discussing how to handle this, but I have so far suggested that I can make it more orchestral if Riku wants me to.

I personally really like the Synth. I think it gets across the feeling of 'old sorrows' or regret (the ambient part I mean).

The Yehat aren't really about old sorrows or regret... Their problems are quite present; They agonize about it, but they're not sad as such.

The Yehat fight for what is right. (What they see as right, anyway.)

They seemed regretful that they had to forsake their honor and their friends and are now just enslaved warriors of their enemies. So I think it fits if the musical direction reflects this.

I don't think they're sad. I think they're pissed off!

They're not Utwig. They're sad, but they CAN live with it. And they're not ALWAYS sad about it. They're more like humans.

The Utwig are not as sad as the Yehat, they just lack the fight that the Yehat have as an additional primary emotion. But that reminds me that the Utwig have two variations of their original theme, for before and after ultron repairs. The same could be done for before and after the Yehat revolution. This one or a variant thereof could be the before, the after could sound more aggressive and maybe use some different instruments.

If there have been four attempts at the Yehat theme so far, it would be a shame to only use one of them.

You're almost correct. The sentence should read: "..., it would be a shame to use any one of them."  Grin

No, just that if you decide not to use this one and make another, you can instead use both, each for different event periods. I did not mean to suggest more work, just not scrapping that which is already done.

If you decide to use this version or a slightly modified version, I think that would be great as well.

Hmm, I have mixed feelings about this remix.

The good: Well, it sounds good. It emphasizes the alien-ness of the Yehat, and it's a good track to have running in the background while coding or writing. Also, it actually includes the basic theme of the original.
The not-so-good: ....but with that said, I don't think it fits the Yehat as well as the original did. There's some unidentifiable (at least by me) quality to the original that captures the "spirit" of the Yehat so well: It combines a feeling of melancholy (the Yehat lost their honour, their freedom and their children) with a strong sense of perseverance (despite their loss, the Yehat still follow their old ways and their old values). For whatever reason, the original makes me think exactly of "proud, warlike starship clans", I think this is somehow lost in the new one.

I'd gladly accept another looooooong wait. I suppose there's a looooooong wait for both the intro and the Syreen (another great tune) as well, anyway. I like the idea of having a theme for the royalists and another for the rebels, by the way.

It's more than likely that you feel that way about the original track because that was the music you heard when you talked to the Yehat the first time you played the game. Whenever you hear that piece of music these days, your brain will automatically associate it with the Yehat pictures and dialogues, making you feel the way you do.

Nostalgia can be a bitch.

That explains why I don't think of "proud, warlike Starship Clans": I used to turn off the music when speaking to aliens.

I would purposely talk to aliens in order to listen to the music.
