Radio Host Job idea

Recommended Posts

The locking of the media player and radio to a donator perk is a good and warranted idea, but I feel like the radio could have some extra use to it. All of these ideas are subject to change however you'd like.

Job Name: Radio Host

Description: Host your own radio station and play music to the inhabitants of XenoRP

Slots: 2-3

Gun License: No

How it works: A couple of other servers have implemented this job into their own, so mine isn't too much different. The job would give the host access to a microphone. and a command center. The server could give access to a non-donator radio; one that can only play music from the hosts' stations. The donator one can stay, because it gives any job access to pick their own music, so the incentive to donate is still there.

The radio command center is a specific entity that is used by the host to queue music and hold other settings. The command center could be the same as the cinema's, but with a few changes. The host can change the name of the station, which would appear on citizens' radios. The command center would be able to queue youtube or soundcloud links like other radios, but be able to be played off any non-donator radio on the server.

The microphone would be a standing microphone entity that can be toggled turned on and off to capture any voice chat from the same distance as normal in-character speaking. The mic would not be over-written by music, and the host could stop the music at any time to capture their voice, say to give brief interludes during songs.

But what about micspamming?: Players that decide to play earrape or any other bad music would not be liked by those wanting to listen to music. The addition of multiple radio hosts would encourage unhappy listeners to simply switch stations or demote the player. There would be no moderation needed.

Why this would be fun: The job would add another layer of depth to the world. It is a very RP-centric job that only adds to the enjoyment of other players. Now not only donators can listen to music, and many players that enjoy entertaining or being heard by others can use this job to have more fun and stay longer on the server.

Thank you for reading my suggestion for the Radio Host as a potential job for XenoRP! I hope you consider this post, and I hope that I can load in one night to see it put in,  because trust me, I'd probably only play that role until the end of days!

I feel like even though you thought of the idea of switching stations and/or demoting the person that wouldn't make it less of a tool for people to minge. Radios, T.V's and the cinema is already a tool to add more RP experience and I just feel like it's unnecessary.

People can already easily minge via radios, tv's, and cinema though?

Yes, that's why I feel like we already have such lenience with audio and video sharing on the server and we shouldn't have more. Don't need more trouble in my opinion.

We sure did, they were poorly made and would crash players. Also YouTube's api changes constantly and breaks addons that use. The radio system we used last was updating like 5 times a week.
