    Ahh alright. Sorry to cause any amount of stress to add to that, I would like to say that I very much enjoy your mods and all the effort you put into them. I've been following Frackin Universe off and on since it was just Frackin Flora, so it's pretty amazing to see it have come so far, and all the other cool stuff you've done besides. :)

    I feel a bit like I'm back to square one though, since I don't get any Frackin Music tracks on server worlds even if I have the mod installed clientside. Do you think I'd have to include the patch files in the mod that adds music to planets to the server, and would doing so work properly if the music files themselves were not on the server? i.e. clients would need to have it installed to hear the music of course, but if the server was basically instructing the client to play the music tracks without the tracks being present on the server itself... would that work?

    Uploading 500 mb to a remote server through FTP is not my internet's idea of a good time, lol... that's what I was confused about mainly, if it would be possible to make it less stressful on my connection by uploading only the absolutely necessary serverside files.

    Honestly I don't even know if I'm going to use the mod at this time given that putting any of it on the server would likely result in any client without it installed(and I do know that some people I play with aren't keen on downloading such a large mod, even if it's just music files primarily) have no music at all... I'm just curious about how it works now. =p And it would be helpful to know for the future, in case anyone else asks.

    the patch files would be suffciient, except that users would then hear a lot of dead air if the server doesnt have the tunes. patch file would go "hey play this" and it would go "but i dont HAVE that...so ill play nothin"

    which is still better than the old days when you got a high pitched squeal instead

    Man, that sucks. I guess you'd really have to put the entire 500 mb on a server for it to work then.

    Thanks for your time regarding this. I've learned a bit about Starbound's weird music mechanics it seems. =p

    I want to download the mod but I'm not sure if i will like the music or not (i don't want to waste 500 mb )
    Is there a way to listen to some without downloading all of them?

    A lot of the music tracks come from places like Kevin Macleod and other similar royalty-free sources.

    You can go to the GitHub page ( https://github.com/sayterdarkwynd/FrackinMusic ) and go into \Music\ and you can download any single file you want (they are only like 5MB each).

    You can sample a few of them this way.

    As someone who knows the tracks fairly well, some of them are just downright awesome and others are "OK". Can't really say I know of any that I don't like, I think he did a rather decent job with selection here.

    already did. If you use the github version you can access it. Its a HUGE mod to update. Uploading it is an eternity at 2 gigs.

    Github is much, much faster.

    I really need to get a git version of this downloaded... lol. but I'm dreading the 180+ MB download.

    I really love Machine track. Can i get any info on this track, like Author of track and where it was found?

    Installed this mod, but I don't think it's working. I installed it by unpacking into /mods/FrackinMusic-master. But I browsed through the ogg files, and I don't think I've heard any of those in game. I'm using the FU mod (installed in /mods/FrackinUniverse/)
    Is there any way to verify whether it's installed correctly?

    This will not change what you hear on already-generated worlds. You need to generate (travel to) new planets and even then it is random which tracks you hear.

    I had the music mod installed before even beginning a brand new server though. Does it matter that I'm connected to a multiplayer server which doesn't have the music mod locally? I've just got it on my end.

    The server creates the worlds, and then the music track list is in the planet's file. This means that the game will never call a track from Frackin'Music because none of those tracks are referenced in the planet's file on the server.

    I don't know why music track lists are stored in the planet's file, but that's just how it is.

    Just to re-iterate, Frackin'Music will not work in Multiplayer unless it is also on the server.
