I was playing the first Atlanteans' scenario and this tune came into my head:-

If might be nice to switch to this tune when the water starts rising. I don't know if our current engine allows this though.

Busy indexing nil values

I find the tune too hectic and disharmonic (with the flute) to be a good backing track for Widelands. Even when the water is rising, it is still a slow and relaixing game.

Also, the player will not know that this song is called Water rising - so they will not get the message :).

Our engine does not support switching music from Lua. There is nothing stopping us adding that though.
