Making its own thread 'cause I don't think an off-hand reply that took me forever to find is going to get much word out for the duderinos in charge of plugging it into the box. If it's performance that's the issue, don't let people use them in S2K. Same way people shouldn't use the advanced particle tool in S2K. Advance Particle tool can easily single-handedly crash the server with some of the larger particle effects, and that's trusted to everyone with advTT. The most stream radio does is give a good ol' crunch at your frames if there's too many and maybe irritate people if it's used frivolously. That's when you take it away. We used it in HL2 to simulate playing music on old recovered pieces of music-devices like MP3 players and walkmans. In interrogations on my cop, I'd use it to set the tone of the experience with some eerie ambiance. Sometimes in the sewers I'd have radios playing the sounds of rats quietly going about, and water dripping from the ceilings of the tunnels and echoing throughout. It sets the tone of roleplay so well- it's greatly underestimated. There are a thousand ways you can use it for good and only a fraction for ill. And the fraction for ill doesn't bring a great deal of problems that can't be undone with "lemonhead has removed your advanced tooltrust"
