Exploring the forest can be rather daunting, but having access to a Radio can add some enjoyment and lighten the mood. Through this Radio, you can listen to music, as well as switch between stations by pressing and holding the E button. The Radio is an excellent tool that can bring a bit of joy during a dark time.

Radio functionality has been greatly improved in the latest patch. Now, users are able to command AI companion Kelvin to pick up a Radio and take it with them back to their base. Before this update, the Radio would oftentimes bug out and despawn when taken away from its original location. This update ensures optimal user experience when playing music via the Radio feature.

Well kevin is able to pick it up and carry the radio on his shoulder back to camp. This is all well and good. It would be nice if you could bring the radio to your cabin set it on a table and play it without Kevin! The game right now is full of glitches as of 7/15/23 I would rather those be addressed as soon as possible. One issue that would improve our ability to construct a structure would be to change the indicator color from white to blue or green, something besides white. In the winter you can not see the white indicator against the white snow.
