Video Players Mod

7 days to die video players mod

This A19 mod now combines several A18/A19 mods (Video Players, Billboards, and Theater Screens).

Introduces mass media into the game. Initial release is in the form of Billboards, but really any flat surface can render the images. Some known issues exist, see known issues for details.

Billboards

This mod adds 2 new billboards to the game:

Billboard01 is a mechanical billboard that shows 3 unique images on each side of the billboard. This is a single texture sheet which you can edit in a graphics program then import into unity and the reexport.

BillboardVideoMP4 is a electronic version, that will play 3 video clips (or entire movies) in rotation. Like 3 TV channels. Best part is you can replace the 3 video files in the mods/resources folder with your own.

If you put down a land claim block you can pick these up by holding the E key.

Installing

This is a modlet. Normal modlet install. If you swap out any of the videos, they must have the exact same name and file extension as the one you’re replacing. Those names are hard coded. It won’t like strange .mp4 encoding so keep it simple.

This is tested to work on dedi as well.

Known Issues

Sometimes the sound plays for a few seconds if you enter the game next to a billboard that has sound. This is because Xyth need to active them on start as he can’t use code to do that. Minor annoyance, but he will look for a workaround.

You need to activate a newly placed billboard by attaching a wire to it, but you can immediately remove that wire. That is because he’s using the switch class and it expects a wire to the switch. No way to fix that without code.

Videos need to be in .mp4 format. He added a version that supports .ogv, but the game won’t play it even though Unity2019 supports it.

Video Players

Introduces working televisions into the game. Same issues exist as on the Billboards.

This mod adds 2 new televisions to the game: VideoTV is a large tabletop television that will play 3 video clips (or entire movies) in rotation. Like 3 TV channels. Best part is you can replace the 3 video files in the mods/resources folder with your own.

TVWall is a wall mounted version setup to replace the existing small wall mounted televisions. Its currently set to replace 90% of them but that can be adjusted in xml.

If you put down a land claim block you can pick these up by holding the E key.

Theater Screens

Adds a flat theater screen into the game. Designed with POI makers in mind, this screen is 16:9 format and 8×5 blocks in size. Same issues exist as on the Billboards.

Installing

Same as the Video Players – This is tested to work on dedi as well.

Known Issues

Same as video players.
