Customize Your Skyrim's Music

The Wizards of the College of Winterhold have done it! They have sucessfully re-chanelled the energies emitted from a strange Dwemer construct that was discovered not long ago! But, this is strange... it seems to be emitting a strange broadcast...

Could it be...?

! *~ SKYRADIO ~* !


Dwemer Jukeboxes across the land have begun to produce beatiful music! But not just any music, music YOU choose!

Up to 100 CUSTOM tracks chosen by you! Play them at will! YOU control the musical experience! The Tracks that play play over ALL other Tracks!
No more combat music to drown out a beautiful Ambient!

The Jukeboxes can be found all across Tamriel, in dungeons! in shops! in the homes of the wealthy! Find, Purchase, Steal, collect them however YOU choose!

THAT IS NOT ALL! The Dwemer Jukebox is mechanical in nature! Pick it up and it folds into a light radio! Then place the radio back as a Jukebox!
THAT IS RIGHT! It is a furniture item too!

Place Jukeboxes in your homes! Set them to play as you enter your home! Don't like how the Jukebox was placed? Move it about via the handy MOVE menu!

You now have total control over your music! Tune in! Tune out! Decorate! Paaaartay! Relax! Fist pump to Classical! D-D-D-Dubstep! YOU choose the sound, NO ONE CAN JUDGE YOU! Except Sheogorath, he is quite Judgemental.

Future of the mod!

I am in the process of recording an actual Radio Show for the mod. It will be

1. Lore Friendly (as lore friendly as possible anyway) by using several in game voices, edited into commercials and such.
2. Track your game progress. Much like GNR of Fallout, Example: Never touch the Theives Guild? Radio host comments on how they are struggling. You in the guild helping it rebuild? He comments on that. You Guildmaster now? He comments on that.

I'm a med student so I have, like, no time to do anything anymore. I finished the mod and started recording, but I want everyone to enjoy custom music. I also realize many would probably skip that version anyway and opt for the no radio show version (I HATE YOU). So I am uploading this one first for peeps to enjoy. When the show version is done, it will be up for optional download.

I PROMISE it will be worth downloading when it is done. SO DOWNLOAD IT WHEN IT IS DONE OR I WILL HOLD KITTENS HOSTAGE.


This is NOT your average workshop mod. YOU MUST read these installation instructions.
{Here is why + a small rant :D, Skip this if you no like rants}

First, this mod allows you to add custom music! But thats that, YOU have to add it, so YOU have to read this, or else the mod DON'T work (uh, duh?). Also... yeah, the Creation Kit is Buggy. For those of you who don't mod, you are all like "PSH WHO CARES GIMME MODS" But it is annoying for people, LIKE ME :D, with good ideas hindered by technical limitations.
FYI, Archival Creation Processes are broken when manipulating Sound Track Files. The kit doesn't properly register IDs to the new tracks, IE I CANNOT UPLOAD A NORMAL TYPE OF BSA. At all. Technically, I should be able to upload this and have it work dandy.
It doesn't because of a Bethesda Bug I CANNOT FIX. So don't ask me to fix it. DON'T GET ME WRONG. The mod works flawlessly, just not through a BSA. IE you ALL have to download my loose files from the Nexus. Period.
So it is time to separate the men from the boys and women from girls, and see how many of you are capable of installing a mod from the Nexus properly :D.

Follow this guide or watch my video tutorial here:

1. Subscribe. Favorite. Thumb Up. <- YES THOSE ARE REQUIRED ( ;) )
2. Follow Nexus Link:
3. Download the LOOSE FILES. In the LOOSE FILES section. NOT the main files.
4. Extract Loose Files to your Steam/Steamapps/Common/Skyrim/Data folder using a program like Winrar/7zip (both free, and you SHOULD have them you PC user you.)
5. Run game to install ESP and BSA.
6. Choose your tracks, 100 is the limit but less is fine.
7. Use a free music converter tool, {like this: } to convert all your songs to .wav format. Don't worry, you will not lose your songs, copies ARE made.
8. Rename the tracks in numerical order like this:
n representing any number up to 100. The order does not matter, all songs will be played randomly from the selection of tracks provided.
9. Put your modified tracks in the Steam/Steamapps/common/Skyrim/Data/Music/skyradio Folder!
10. Load Game up and have everything work fine and be happy.

See? It wasn't so bad. And the result? Awesome custom music for you to enjoy at the press of a button!


Why (;__;)?

Well fine. IF you must know...

1. DON'T be tuned into the radio before you uninstall. Go place the radio someplace and go in another cell away from it or any other radios/jukeboxes.
2. Make a NEW (MANUAL) save game.
3. Exit Game, remove mod from load order
4. Enter game and make another NEW save
5. Die a little on the inside

Here is the deal. The mod works great, you just have to install it properly. Once installed you should have 0 issues whatsoever. If you do have an issue, put "I read your description" In your post. Otherwise I will assume you didn't and that is your fault.

If you DO have issues (you shouldn't)

1. Try loading this FIRST in your Load Order. Go to the Data section in the game launcher and move the file up as far as it can go.
2. Try making sure none of your audio files are above 72-75 MBs in size. You can lower the size by lowering the quality of the conversion, or changing the bit-rate.
3. Pray to Talos.
Why doesn't the music fade out over distance when placed someplace?

That is because it is still working through Music Tracks, not a Sound Marker. The difference? Music Tracks can't fade out, sound tracks can. Then why didn't I do just that? Because sounds are a lot buggier. Firstly there is a slight track limit of about 30 songs. It also made the game a slight bit more crash prone when entering and leaving the cell the sound was playing in. So I opted for the Music Track instead. More music and no crashy.

Why is it food?

Because I said so. That not good enough? Alright ~_~;

Because it is the best way to implement something like this. Misc Items script functions break when you remove items AS they are running scripts, so that was not possible. Equipment is another story, we won't go there for the time being.

Also, food item menu is usually the least cluttered I find, easier access. So there.


Ur dumb.

The Radeeo floats wut?

Don't drop it?

Credit must go to born2bkilled for the awesome Radio model. Two thumbs up!

Sounds amazing, but I wish it came standard with at least the Bard instrumental music already loaded.

My dude Fuck You. "Rate Up, Favorite" that was the biggest piece of bullshit i've heard since I was in Spain.

If you need, i will also send the translated work to you by web U-disk.Such great mod couldn't be used only by one kind of language,and Such mighty mod must be spreaded widely! Thank your greatjob!

Wow what a great idea and creative way to set the tracks in game...kudos to you!!! I love the vanilla Skyrim. However, after you've played through it a few times it does become a bit stale and as much as I love the soundtrack it gets old after you've heard it for the millionth time! As far as the installation is concerned it couldn't be easier. I play minecraft a lot too and I run a lot of mods there as well. If you can mod minecraft successfully then this is cake!!! Keep up the great work!
