Hey Veterans, i was thinking bout this idea of mine to set up Radio stations around Veterancraft, but actually have them play music. How would you actually accomplish this you may ask, its quite simple using the power of live-streaming. We would have dedicated Dj's to put out music that fits the channel type and actually have dedicated VC radio stations. Of course each station would most likely have to have an actual radio tower on the main VC tower and each DJ would have to get approved by mods or the like. Each streamer would also have to be put to the test to make sure they rant just another troll. Once they are approved by the VC elite and such, they would be allowed to make their own radio station with a tower. This way we have VC endorsed music stations also we could put in interviews on "talk-shows" this way and actually get to know what people think and such. like say we would have VCR-1 which would be Latest hits, and have a schedule with it, like "guest speaker TheMackFather will be having an AMA" or stuff like that. Anyway this is my idea and i would like to see what you guys think of it and how we can improve this idea to make it functional.

Love the idea mack! As a relative new Minecrafter (about 6 months or so), I have never seen this done before.

Have you researched how you would specifically do this? 

What about the lag it may cause? (pretty big issue)

If I were an Admin, my initial concerns would be that it may conflict with the "minimalist" approach at the servers core regarding plugins. Specifically, I'm referring to this bullet under "The Difference" page:

"We don’t overload the server with tons needless plugins. They waste ram and cause lag"

Also, read Frelling's pinned post in the Suggestion Box. It would have to fit the established specifications laid out there and fit the original intent of MC; so be mindful of this.

 

Just my initial thoughts... I play Pandora in the background usually, so it would be an interesting addition in my opinion.

I don't understand this idea.

Explain it like I'm five?

If I understand it correctly, he is referring to something like SoundCenter/CustomMusic. Stream music/radio directly into the server. Possibly tailor some of its content to VC. Has potential to work well with community events and creating a more engaging environment with longtime VC members.

 

Obviously, it has to have limited range and other features to limit lag, but I like the idea. I'm just not sure it fits the "Notch test" (as I call it; see frelling's post). Not to mention it would have to be run by someone dedicated to maintain it, as it could muddle the server if left unattended too long.

This may clash with licensing laws. In addition, it would be a waste of administration with little to no net benefit. I'm going to make a call and decline this suggestion.

Cheers,

If this is something that can be done without requiring effort on VC staff or resources, go for it. But, if I get the general gist of it, let me tell you that hosting a digital radio show involves a lot of work. I'm not one to stifle inspiration, but licensing, scheduling, and resources alone make that a full-time job even if there is only one broadcast every so often. Then again, maybe I misread the above and I'm envisioning something different than what you suggest.
