In order to improve the reliability of flat physics items, I make them chunkier and smaller. That raised a little issue with the proportions of a disc-case…
So anyways I made them into cassettes.
I thought it’d be a fun little “collectible” (vaguely) for my Condos, making them visually distinct from the standard DVDs.
Behold! A rare, one-of-a-kind copy of Christy - Santa’s First Female Reindeer on TMC!
I’ve called them TMC Carts: short for Tower Media Control Cartridges. I attempted to blend the canvas with the actual texture, but it’s a little rough around the corners. Each TMC has a sticker on it representing its contents, instead of full boxart, and is closer to the dimensions of a video thumbnail.
Due to the changed orientation of the texture, it is now readable when held by a player.
I also made a Blockbuster-style deposit box and scattered multiple Carts around my Condo for my friends to find.
