Suggestion, collectible cassette tapes for In-car music

Recommended Posts

While I was playing 7 Day to Die with my friends we realised it would be awesome if you could have music in the car, but better than that, the music could be dictated by what "cassette tapes" have been found while looting, like with books it would really add to the looting experience.

This^^ as well as possibly 8-track tapes, vinyl records, CDs, DVDs or flash memory sticks. You would just have to find or craft the playback device first, to unlock the collection for that format.

just spitballing here.....for pure XML modlets...and not counting who owns the music:

 

Maybe replace the "horn" with music?  You'd only get 1 song, likely.

 

Does anyone know how to detect (like a cvar or something) if a player is "in or driving" a vehicle?  If so it might make sense to be able to trigger a buff and play a sound (music) in the players head... if only 1 person could drive ( or can detect "you're driving") then can just play that sound on that player and not in the players head. The find some way to handle triggering the buff based on an item the player has...in their hand/inventory?

 

Alternatively, you could possibly (and this is terrible) replace the "highest gear" driving sounds of the vehicle with the music....which would mean you craft it with like, a single 8 track in it forever... which is possible in real like if you've ever owned an 8-track (may you rest in peace, my first car).  Alternatively add recipes to "craft" a new 4x4 with a r4x and a new music item.  Its a terrible solution ... and if you slow down the music stops.. .but then again they made that movie "Speed" and it was a hit so in a way its not a totally inconceivable concept ;0

 

Other than that, maybe when vehicle mods come in it will be do-able?  Another possibility: xyth? made "music player" blocks.  I've heard that TFP doesn't plan on adding places blocks can be placed to vehicles ... but in some of the "boats and rafts" discussion there has been talk of maybe allowing a block or 2 to be placed on/on a raft.

 

All other options that come to mind are maybe literally non-vanilla vehicles doing some deeper level of non XMl magic magic to allow this just for them.

A horn mod would be really cool. Add one of those loud ass train horns for maximum doucheyness

Oh god that gyro horn!

Yeah :) I didn't make the sounds, I'm just maintaining the mod as its a unique mod.  If you know of any free sounds that are cool for horns, post a URL to them and I might be able to make another horn modlet, or maybe add them to this one and users can them comment out/in the ones that they want to use.
