hey guys, my first post here, I’ve been enjoying having watch parties with my friends lately, since getting the game a week ago, however, at times it can feel cumbersome to alt+tab, look up several youtube videos, copy individual links into the TV each time to add media so we can watch a playlist, and so myself and my friends Chebypattern and Yanga came up with a pretty nifty solution;
Instead of manually adding several links one by one, why not create a playlist in the form of a physical media of some kind, such as DVD, VHS, Betamax, Reel to Reel, CDs, Laserdisc, Cassette tape, 8-Track, Records and whatnot… Have these as cheap purchasable items in DIY for example that you can place inside your condo or something, and with these discs, cassettes, tapes and so forth, have their respective players that can be linked to a TV, Stereo, Projector or any media device.
So when you buy a DVD for example, its blank by default, but you can save for example 10 - 15 links to that individual DVD, and for fun lets say you can add artwork to the DVD, but by default it’ll have a name you give it on the front. And when movie night comes when you and your friends are ready to watch some youtube poops or some youtube series, you can simply plop a playlist DVD into the player and it’ll play those links that you saved to the DVD.
Maybe even have a system where people can store media in their inventories and bring it to other condos to share playlists on movie night. I can imagine this being especially useful for music playlists, where I can drop a record or cassette tape into a player and not worry about copying several individual links and taking 5 mins of setup each time I want to listen to some tunes
This could be a great way to improve upon the already great media system with a feature people have wanted but in a creative fun way
