I think the current Thrive theme does this already, but the tune could "evolve" throughout the song? Maybe a section for each stage if it's the long version. Also, I really like this part (6:36 to 7:20) of the current theme! So, uh.. keep it.
Unfortunately, I don't know much about music so I can't think of anything else to add.
I've been working quite a bit on the updated Main Theme recently:
A couple of things I know are already wrong:
- The dynamic processing is all over the place. At the moment it sounds fine in my DAW, but the exported file has clipping all over the place. Any attempt to fix it results in either a dull or distorted sound. I'll certainly have to fix this. - This is only around half of the finished piece. Several notable sections from previous versions are missing, and I'll get to adding those alongside ironing out everything already in place. - Strings. Gah, strings. No matter what I do to them, they always sound fake and plastic. It's a slight improvement from v8, which was itself a massive overhaul of v7, but God am I fed up with string micromanagement.
I have no knowledge in music whatsoever so I can't really be one to nitpick. So what I will say is that I really like that change of pace at 1:34 all the way through to the main part of the main theme. The drums are a nice touch there. It definitely is improving.
First off I would like to say I think you have done a great job with the theme thus far. The piano solo adds a nice touch. Personally I'd like to see a bit more of a orchestral approach. It doesn't seem like the piano fits with electronic-style music. If you maybe added some chello, bass, and/or any other long-toned stringed instruments, the piano might fit a little bit better. That statement might be a bit biased though, since I am a big fan of John Williams. Keep up the good work!

phantomhunter01: It wasn't really a terrorist attack, right? I thought it was just some crazy guy.

Atrox: Is an attack that causes terror not a terrorist attack?

Immortal_Dragon: A terrorist attack is one that is politically motivated and is intended to have a political outcome or effect on the political climate. At least I think that's what the criteria are.

TheGraveKnight: So I finally beat the Automatron DLC for Fallout 4. Despite the obnoxious farming that I had to do, it was still fun, especially at the end.

TheGraveKnight: I looked up footage of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and funnily enough, it wasn't the design or gameplay that surprised me. It was because they actually did voice acting (minus Link because Miyamoto hates story) for the characters!

mitobox: I had a dream not too long ago involving a trip to a zoo. One of the animals there looked like a gray, bulky Stegosaurus, but the exhibit stated that it wasn't an actual Stego, or a dinosaur for that matter.

mitobox: It just looked that way because plates and tail spikes worked pretty well last time (convergence). I'm pretty sure the exhibit also said the animal was cold-blooded.
