|“||It would be great to listen to current news and weather forecasts. We could be better prepared to deal with hardships if we knew about them well in advance. When there's nothing on the news, we can listen to music and brighten our mood.||”|
The Radio is one of the many household items in This War of Mine. It is crafted at the Simple Workshop. It lets the players know the overall state of Graznavia, Pogoren and provides useful information, such as weather forecasts, surges in raiding and criminal activities, shortages, and more. Keeping up with the news will allow the player to better prepare for upcoming problems and take advantage of various opportunities. Turning the dial on the radio will allow the player to tune to different channels.
If the player is in a custom story, Radio One and City Today have occasionally not shown up and are instead replaced with the static noise. Weather FM and the two music channels will work just fine, though.
Leaving the radio on the music channel provides a small boost to the survivors' mood.
Occasionally, some stations will temporarily cease function.
There are 5 channels which can be found on Radio.
|Radio One||Focus on the war developments, the criminals in the city, the ceasefire day, supplies in city.|
|City Today||Prices of specific supplies|
|Classical Masterpieces||"Some classical music playing..."|
|Radio Vysena||"Music is playing..."|
