MP3 files can be used to make region and parcel-wide background sounds. The files you see here are located in Outworldzfiles\Apache\htdocs\Audio. You can add your own audio files there. This selection of background sounds is CC-0 so can be used anywhere with no license restrictions.

You can play one sound at a time per parcel using your DreamGrid Apache web server. The sound can be looped. Apache must be enabled and running for this to work. You can divide up your land into small parcels and play different audio sounds in each parcel
