CityDriver: How to Add Web Radios and Custom Playlists

Here’s how to add new web radios and custom playlists to your vehicles’ radio in CityDriver.


TL;DR: Here’s the folder you’re looking for

Too long; didn’t read: C:\Users\*YourUserName*\Documents\ViewApp\CityDriver\Music

“I can’t find the folder *YourUserName*”

Please, keep in mind that you have to either change *YourUserName* into the actual user name, which you’re using on your system or simply follow the path manually and click on you the folder with your user name.

The radio feature in CityDriver

Each vehicle supports the web radio and playlist feature, but not necessarily an interactive radio in the cockpit, e.g. the Maranelli GTC 844. So, you can open the radio menu any time when inside a vehicle by holding the Ctrl key. While the radio menu is open, the game time will slow down to 1%, so you can take your time without worrying about your driving – unless you operate the radio buttons or display via the mouse.

Even though we’ve added radio channels via web radio, the game simulates a traditional radio using radio waves. So, white noise will become audible as soon as you enter tunnels or underground parking.

You can also choose to enable the radio to be audible outside of your vehicle via the audio options of the game. And of course, you can also adjust the maximum volume of the radio in the audio options too.

Interacting with the vehicle radio

We’ve added some local and regional web radio channels to the default game files, so you can listen to actual and original radio stations and maybe improve your German language skills during moderation and commercials. Einfach fantastisch, nicht wahr?!

You can interact with the radio via the mouse using the dot of the crosshair or by activating the mouse cursor via the right mouse button.

Using the radio menu

You can open the radio menu by holding the Ctrl key inside any vehicle. As mentioned previously, this will slow down the game time to 1%.

All of the options below can either be used with the mouse cursor or their respective hotkeys.

Adjust volume

You can adjust the current volume of the radio via Arrow Key Up or Arrow Key Down.

Switch playlist / channel

Playlists (if any exist) and radio channels can be switched with Q and E keys.

Switch songs

Switch/Skip songs of a playlist via Arrow Key Left or Arrow Key Right.

Toggle loop

Enable or disable a song looping with the Tab key.

Toggle shuffle

Enable or disable a song looping with the R key.

Play song

Play or stop a song from the playlist or a radio channel playing via the Enter key.

Exiting the radio menu

With the Esc key, you can close the radio menu and return to the gameplay.

Adding web radios

You can find the file RadioStations.csv in the following directory:

You can open the .csv with various programs, e.g. Excel, OpenOffice Calc, Notepad or Notepad++.
Inside the file, you will find short descriptions of how to add new web radios, but you’re already reading this guide, so we’re going to explain it to you nonetheless 😛

You can put online radio streams in the RadioStations.csv file. Radio streams have to be in HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) format. Links to .m3u or .m3u8 files are not supported. However, you can often get a link to the actual stream by opening the .m3u file with a text editor, e.g. Notepad.

You can have one Radio Station per line/row/cell, using the following format: Name,Link


Bayern 1,

Adding custom playlists

In the same directory as mentioned previously, you can simply add music files or create subfolders within this directory and name these playlist folders accordingly to the content, e.g. “My Mega Music Mix_Copy 3_Final” or “Oktoberfest”:

Supported file formats

Here are the currently supported music file formats for playlists:

  • .mp3
  • .mp4
  • .mva
  • .wma

Unlike web radios, playlists are not affected by radio reception and thus will not suffer from white noise in tunnels or underground parking.
