Music collection mod- CD's and Cassettes

Recommended Posts

I’m a big fan of BookMod, the collectible element to rummaging through bookcases and going after certain authors/genres for RPing is wonderful.
I have been thinking about doing a similar thing with collectible music, mainly CD’s and cassettes.
It would be, initially, without purpose as there is no functionality to CD-players (or existence of cassette-decks) but I figured, starting this up In anticipation of the functionally would be fun.

I’d like to add custom art for all albums, as that is a large part of the hobby, but am not sure how taxing this would be on the engine, I’d imagine it should be fine, just a decently large amount of work.


I’m new to Zomboid modding (though have been playing since the beginning) and don’t want to blow this up to a enormous project but this sort of thing might be a good way to get started.

Any tips, ideas, precautions?:)

 

Edit: Of course, I can't help myself but look into a way to make  custom functionality. Current idea: Have a recipe that requires a CD-player/Cassette-deck+Cd/Cassette(probably earplugs), than gain small happiness/boredom/stress bonus while listening. A duration could be put in, or a "page" system like the books have so that you can pauze/play, but that might be tricky, I don't know.

Here is a mod that adds CDs and functioning CD players to the game. There are only 3 CDs but each has several custom music tracks on them.

This one make it so you can play those handheld videogames you find in closets and dressers.

 

You should be able to use these mods as a base to make your own, or send a message to the maker of these mods and maybe he will throw a few tips your way.

Oh wow, I knew about the videogame mod, but hadn't seen the Cd one yet. Should probably have checked beforehand. I have about 200 Cd items ready so that'll be a nice base to experiment on the implementation.

Thanks a lot! I will check them out, see how easy they would be to appropriate and contact the authors!:D
