I love this music isn’t it too dreamy?
 
This mod adds 4 new channels to in-game stereos and wall stereos, filled with Angelo Badalamenti’s unsettling backwoods noir sounds - perfect for Twin Peaks neighbourhoods, or anyone who wants that kind of mood for their Sims.
 
ESSENTIAL NOTE:
  • You must own the Twin Peaks soundtrack for this mod to work
  • You need to use the TS4 Sound Tool to make your own music packages (easy)
 
The Channels
I have set up 4 channels with suggested themes, but you have to choose what songs are added to them - including non-Twin-Peaks tracks, or sound clips.

Ghostwood FM
Unsettling dark ambient, like Theresa’s Autopsy, Nightsea Wind, Back to Fat Trout and Dark Mood Woods, and clips from Dr Amp’s radio show.
 
Invitation to Love
Sentimental and nostalgic tracks, like Twin Peaks Theme (Solo Rhodes), Birds in Hell, Voice of Love, High School Swing, as well as sound clips from the television show.
 
Roadhouse Radio
Vocal performances, like Jimmy Smith, Julie Cruise, The Chromatics etc, or rockier “on the outskirts” tracks like In the Pink Roomand Americana.
 
In the Red Room
Dreamy noir like Dance of the Dream Man, Laura’s Dark Boogie, Audrey’s Dance, and the Fire Walk With Me Theme.
 
How To Set Up Your Stations

Use denton47’s TS4 Sound Tool to add create four packages, containing the music for your four channels. His tutorial is pretty clear, but I’ve also written a fuller one with screenshots here.
 
You MUST name the files EXACTLY as I have typed them here. Otherwise they won’t link correctly to the main package that puts the channels into your game.
 
For Station, always choose mu_stereo_simretro.
 
New Resource Name:
Twin_Peaks_mu_stereo_Ghostwood
Enter music genre: Ghostwood FM
Then check the Hash number is identical to: 8BDA3AB1DC94BB41
 
New Resource Name: Twin_Peaks_mu_stereo_InvitationToLove
Enter music genre: Invitation To Love
Then check the Hash number is identical to: BF2377BDEEBBB2A7
 
New Resource Name: Twin_Peaks_mu_stereo_Roadhouse
Enter music genre: Roadhouse Radio
Then check the hash number is identical to: A6B1EB140E573A91
 
New Resource Name: Twin_Peaks_mu_stereo_RedRoom
Enter music genre: In The Red Room
Then check the hash number is identical to: EBF0AD7C7DABFB4F
 
This will create 4 package files, one for each station. Put all four of these, plus my file, in your game.
 
You can use the TS4 Sound Tool to open your channel packages in future, to change the music in them.

Mod Conflicts

This mod will likely conflict with any other Radio Channel overhaul mods. It edits these four shared files:
 
  • StereoChannel
  • StereoChannel_wall
  • AffordanceList_stereo_listens
  • AffordanceList_stereo_listens_Musiconly
 
I’ve written a (moderately easy) tutorial to show you how to fix mods with this conflict here- it requires Sims4Studio, and a bit of XML editing.

The mod also changes the Object Tuning files for each of the base game residential stereos. Again, this mod will conflict with other mods that have edited the behaviour of individual basegame stereos.

The mod does not work on the Hot Tub or the SmartHub, because that's a lot of extra work and Twin Peaks is eternally in a 1950s/1990s timeloop where the Smart Hub has yet to be invented.
