MP3 radio player for ship

Post by Overwatch301 on Sun Jun 09, 2013 1:44 pm

So I was listening to some awesome music today, and it came to me, what if you had a console that could play mp3's detected on your computer on ship wide speakers, it could add quite a bit to battles. It's a far off idea, but I wanted to get your guys take on it.

I second this feature. I've always loved games that implement something like that. Listening to some Two Steps From Hell while flying would be incredible.

Or even having it play from the ship as we head out on an excursion would be pretty cool.

although for your crewmates to be able to hear it, wouldn't they have to download your music too? or stream it or something?

love the idea though, i just feel it would be a bit awkward to implement

It doesn't really matter at the moment. If they are going to implement this it would probably be at a much later stage.

Yeah this is more of a long term polish idea.

what about a internet radio station player so you could put on stations that would play for you and your friends in the rover or ship itself? it would likely be less of a headache to implement in a static to object multiplayer way then a mp3 player

Yeah that would be a better and easier choice.

Maybe it could be a modified voice chat system that plays sound files on your computer.

The problem is detecting the audio files, if there is a simple folder some people might have trouble putting the files in the folder, even though it seems simple, many of my friends can't even manage that.

Just throwing this out there: What about uploading the MP3s to a folder on the servers. Then when you want to play them, they're already there. Each person would have they're own folder attached to they're account. I know it would take up resources that could be allocated much better, but its just an idea.

Uploading to servers doesn't make sense, we use cloud servers that scale depending on demand. You can't store any information on them, they're there to receive and transmit. When you close your room or you stop playing that server switches off. Any game info is all stored locally on your machine. Or maybe a steam cloud if we ever get greenlight ....

I don't know much about the licensing issues if any...And yes, accessing files on your machine isn't that hard i suppose...

What I do have is a 'right now' solution....

Turn down the music in the audio option...tab out to your desktop...open your preferred music player...push play ahahah
