My friends and I have worked here and there over the past year creating a fully featured custom radio station for GTA V. We have fully implemented DJs, custom commercials, station bumps, music, talk segments, etc. We think it turned out well and had a lot of fun making it. Check it out and let us know what you think!

 
[NOTE: There's some offensive material that doesn't represent our views, but more so the comedy of the game and bigotry of the stereotypes we were trying to represent.]

 

Preview our first batch of commercials & our second batch of commercials for in-game companies. There's even more in the final version of the station.

 

[!!NEW!!] It's finished! Click here to preview and download. I split it up into several different tracks to assist in the randomness of the starting location. This seems to be the best way. Check out the 00-Readme.txt file if you're not sure how to add custom stations to GTA V. Be sure you have the Radio mode set to sequential.

 

Here's the original commercial for Coal Rollin Radio:

 
I will be updating this thread with new development of the station as they are available. Stay tuned.

Do we have any confirmation regarding the custom radio station? Seems like they only confirmed the video editor.

It's a given it will be included, it always has since GTA III, why would it change now? It's always been an exclusive GTA PC feature. (And Xbox, the original, for GTA SA)

Yeah. It would be extremely weird if they didn't include that feature this time. Either way, we're having fun with this. Any song suggestions?

Don't forget about III and VC on Xbox, LCS and VCS on PSP, and all of the iOS ports (including Chinatown Wars) :). Technically, the 360 versions of IV and V let you use custom music too, albeit not as an actual option in the game, but it's better than nothing at all.

And yeah, I think it's safe to assume the PC version will have custom music support. Like you said, if every GTA starting with III had it, why wouldnt V?

The first hour segment ("The Drinking Hour") hosted by DJ Dee is finished. We have started the "Pissed Off Ponderings" hour with Mad Max and finished three rants. About 15 commercials are done so far.

Sounds like you have a good group of people around to do some recording, straight away it's already impressive and the recording equipment actually sounds good! Some of those ads were good to, sadly more memorable than a lot of GTAV's.

This is f*cking great, dude.

 

The Ubermacht and FlyUS commercials made me laugh more than any of the actual shows in the game :D

Add "Los Angeles is Burning" by Bad Religion. 

 

Not sure why they didn't have it on their punk station to begin with.. it's perfect for this game.

Oh sh*t! This is like K-Rose for GTA V! I never played GTA V, is there a K-Rose-ish station on there?

 

All that aside great job OP!

Ohh, that's pretty professional compared to some other fan stations I made.

 

A buddy of mine and I made a radio station for a mod, this here's a sampler for it if anyone's interested.

Someone recently painted a picture of me from the Mellow Mushroom 1974 day. I thought it would be the perfect portrait for DJ Dee on Coal Rollin Radio.

This should be a vanilla GTA V station because this totally rocks!

 

The commercials could be a pack to replace default in-game ones, but IDK, lel.

 

Southern Classics aren't my forte, but that sweet voice acting in those commercials alone were so great, I want it. (I like how a guy who keeps on saying "Ubermacht" on its commercial sounded seductive XD) MOAR. MOAR.

 

MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAR

Thanks! We're working on more tonight. We can package those commercials up so players can add them along with their other songs on the PC version.

Don't be a Jew. Buy an Ubermacht.

We exported a few more commercials tonight. We'll start building up the next commercial trailer video, but I'll link to some new ones here if you want a sneak peak. We love hearing input in suggestions, so let us know what you think.

[NOTE: In the spirit of GTA, we touch on a lot of stereotypes. Typically dumb rednecks and all of their prejudice.

Ohhh the irony :lol:

Do you know how you're going to implement this yet? Like, are you going to make it a bunch of MP3s that people can play on Independence with the DJ turned off, or will it be one big chunk?

 

I thought it would be fun if someone made a mod that disassembles the code for radio stations and lets you replace the songs and DJ bumps while "intelligently" randomizing them like the game does (i.e. there are sound bites that play during the morning where the DJs reference it being morning, and it plays a certain amount of songs before commercials roll). Plus that would let people take new songs and insert them to the existing radio stations and their DJs bumps, organize their in-game music by genre, etc.

 

anyway, just curious if you've thought about anything in that direction

It's my understanding that you can't have time-sensitive radio. As far as organization and adding new songs/bumps, GTA will let you play them in order as they appear in the folder. We will probably have two options: a single, long file that plays through everything and a zip fill of smaller pieces that can be ordered by name in the custom song folder.

A single, long file will be the easiest for people since they can pretty much drop it in and play. They won't have to make sure they're in the right order or even set to sequential mode in the game. They could be on Radio or Random settings and it would play correctly.

This does seem really interesting. I love radio and I do feel that while some god tracks were on the soundtrack, I could have been alot better.

 

How are you going to gt past copywrite? Are you going to just be including jingles, DJ chat and comercials while letting poeple download tracks themselves?

 

Also, Im really interested in this, Im goona start a thread on a similar topic shortly and il post the link here...
