I would like to see a radio station added in like if some one finds the station and wants to act like a DJ and take music request if anyone wants to listen to some music you have to switch to the radio stations freequnce to listen on radios or cb radios and the station would take alot of power to run and fuel to run set station and sound does attract zombies so listen at your own risk if you dont wont a horde come nocking on your door and that inclueds the station becuase you want to listen to your music as well so be prepared for a fight to defend the station. i dont think it would be a performace issue because music dosent really play for very long and like i said take music requests from survivors that want to listen to the music and if you dont want to listen to the music switch to a differnt frequnce if you dont want to listen to it and like comrade said if you dont like what there doing hence like trolling grab some ammo and some guys and blow his head off and take the station over. once you do that you could have someone take over as DJ of the station of the free survivors if the person wants to do it its there choice.

+1 this idea, also who wouldn't want to put on the radio after a long scary night filled with zombies?
It's morning and the sun just got up, you sit outside by the fire listening to the radio after surviving the night ^.^)/

good addition and kind of what I had in mind and maybe it could raise your mental health in the game because music makes people feel good about them selves when they hear music or maybe a record player in some random homes would be cool to see as well.

Would be good until a group of players take over it and start demanding stuff... I like the idea of music being played over the radio. I just hope you'll have enough fuel to keep that generator powered all the time!

Tally Ho!

and if you dont want to listen to the music or radio broadcast switch to a differnt frequnce if you dont want to listen to it like comrade said if you don't like what there doing hence like trolling grab some ammo and some guys and blow his head off and take the station over. once you do that you could have someone take over as DJ of the station of the free survivors if the person wants to do it its there choice.

I talked about this idea on the STN group page on steam not the stn greenlight page.

I like the idea of having communication stations where you have to fix some stuff up and then you can maybe transmit messages that can only be heard by people with HAM radios or regular radios. It would be nice if its used for long distance communication. Like that radio add on for ARMA 3 that gets tied to teamspeak.

I don't use that mod. but the devs I beleave said that there would be different freequences in the game for the radios. like ham, cb, and normal radios.
so ya if you want to use the radio station for communication and music to mix it up a bit go ahead your expeireance is what you make of it in the game.

But if we are talking about radios, somehow you would have to make a headset or something that only you can hear it, noone else. That would be handy,

I have been thinking of those radio back packs the army has Im shure zombies don't eat electronics like radios so if the radio is still working or broken so you will have to find parts from other radios to fix it. and they are heavy so if you got someone at your house base with a map on a table like your strategist or some one to protect the house from intruders. while your squad or group of friends are out scavenging they could have one guy as there radio man with the back pack radio.
yes I know walke talkees are going to be in the game but the back pack radio would give you a little more radio range compared to what the walke talkees have.

thank you finndawg for the props for creativity. because when you think about it all the radio stations equipment is heavy so they wont take it with them when they leave or get run over by zombies I say run over because radio stations are use ally the last place for information to go out when the dead start to roam the earth. saying that, that means that it will have a maybe of 2 hordes at least surrounding it maybe less. I don't know what the devs plan for how big one horde will be like if the horde roams for a long time will it get bigger or will it get smaller depending how long the hordes been walking/roaming.

feel free to comment on this thread

Probably the biggest problem that you would face is that people would use this for minging.

8/10, if players where given the option to broadcast their mic over wide-spread speakers via a radio station, they would do either of the following:

-Pornographic noises
-Irritating noises
-NonRP related discussing
-Dubstep (which is so irrelevant)

If they didn't commit to doing the following like any 12-year old in the horde of adolescents that tend to ruin worthy games like this truly, then it would be great for RP in the aspects of bringing players to safe havens, or traps (Teeerrrrmmmiiinnnuuuusssss....)

Regards, Blender

never thought of using it as a trap but good idea, And like I said to lord goose if a and pardon my French no offense (Trolling player or jackass) were to do something of that caliber then they shure have wasted there time just to do that kind of crap on the radio stations because they are or will be garded by a few hordes or more and if they were doing the hence forth trolling type thing round up your guys and take him out and end the madness also you can only hear what they are saying if you are on set freequence when they are broadcasting there transmission so if he the radio dJ becomes a problem you could go with option A peacefully removing him or option B shoot him and uphold the honor of being the radio man of the free survivors

Good idea for the trap thing blender I never thought of using it as a trap props for the trap idea.
But honestly please no trapping because that would just be a complete pain in the ass to deal with I just said good idea because I know people that like to aka kill on sight or at least into that sort of thing would say it to so good thing he said it first.

I do not condone kill on sight but in the game of survive the nights the weak shale survive while the strong shale fall by that I mean anyone who goes nuts and thinks nothing could stop them the strong the weak people who know what there doing and don't act like nothing can stop them.

if anyone wants to talk about songs or radio type ideas feel free to go ahead and post a comment. by songs I mean what song would you like to listen to in the appocapalapsse to improve your mood. or songs would you like to find as a loot item and be able to listen to in the game to increase immersane into the game.

first fluff the reason your thread got canceled was because my thread was posted way before yours no disrespect but im just saying the reason why it was, and I came up with the idea on the steam thread channel on there steam group sight in one of there threads and this was before the forum was released. I mean no disrespect and all but it was nice to see that we both think on the same page that radio stations would be a nice and good addition to the game just please no flame wars on this thread.
and good luck to all survivers in survive the nights keep coming up with new ideas guys im liking what ideas im seeing so far.
