The PC version had a more interesting melody. This is just the same bars repeated over and over with some whooshy industrial noises in the background.

Late in reply, perhaps, but I have to agree WHY would you want it to resemble more the PC version? I like the PC version, but it seemed so monotonous at times. Honestly, I'm undecided between the 3DO version and this version, as both themes have a certain charm to them. 3DO with its repair sounds, and this version with its more urgent feel to it.

I have to respectfully disagree with folks that prefer the 3DO or PC version in this case... the 3DO version has some cool "repair" samples in it, but it also has those tribal drums in the middle that drive me nuts. And the PC version... why would you want to limit the song to the sparse drums and bassline that the technology of the day could handle? Yes, the new samples are sharper, but to me that gives the composition a much more urgent feel.

Of all the new remixes out there, this would be one of the last I'd recommend changing...

Please, make a remix more true to the original which has some awesome elements to the piece. The starship refit is my ABSOLUTE favorite of all the songs and I want so much to see it done right. I have the original MOD file (not the 3D0 one) which I play with the MODplug Player. Using the settings I can make it sound nearly as good as a CD vs the DOS game. Please make it right. What you have now is to sharp and unpleasing. What I would want is closer to the original. I want this to be a turn up the music to full song. It was awesome. Please make the remix a full blast song. More bass, less treble and keep up the beat. :)

This tune as with all the others rocks! I've played the game to exhaustion more times than I care to remember and these new tunes made the game all brand new and modern again! Time to reclaim my youth! LOL

well done guys cant wait for the next remix installment...my game isnt complete without them! :)

I think the 3DO one is better. Samples in this one are too sharp. And the 3DO version had some great sound samples that gave the image of a ship being serviced, plus an upbeat "ready to launch" section at the end.

Another great song. The only downside with using these re-mixes is that I'm often dancing around too much to pay attention during intense parts of the game.

Hmpf...it's always difficult to decide what is best, and for sure, the original sound had something going for it too. But, at the end, I think this one is even better, so I would say it's definately an improvement.

This is how I wish the "outfit starship" track had gone -- harder and more melodic, with new elements added. The synth stabs really add to the feeling of being in a hi-tech repair facility.

Well done on the remix! imho it fits just fine and passes my "replacement test" for the older version, into the game ;)

Didn't check it in-game yet (waiting for the rest of the packs) but I hope it loops seamlessly (or is that silent ending intended? I hope not).

I have to disagree with the last comment, I think this remix is an improvement on the original score and still fits the game pretty well. But as for me SC2 just wouldn't be right without the original mod files. Even so the remixes are great and a good job done by all.

Keep up the good work, nice to see some of the same people who did the great SC tracks to start with doing the remixes as well.

I have the same problem with this remix as I did with the Druuge remix - it's a good song, and it drives me nuts that the remixer decided to take it a different direction than I would have. Dan took it into a more melodic direction, and while it works pretty well for the track out of context, I don't find that it fits as well in the game - in fact, as much as I hate to admit this on this site, I find myself preferring the 3DO and even the original version of the song to this remix. Maybe I'm a closet industrial fan, but I really would like to hear a noisier, harder version of this song (something akin to what Skinny Puppy might have produced in the later days).
