The Gramophone mod is based on Emile Berliner's flat discs (which are, of course, the most popular) and deviates from the usual, classic phonograph style of having an external horn. The design of this gramophone or phonograph is based on devices that don't have an external horn and seems to reproduce from something that resembles a speaker . The decision is to avoid something that would look entirely out of place in Minetest's cubic design. It also doesn't record music (for now).
This mod is highly inspired by the Jukebox  in Minecraft. However, the Minecraft device is too minimalist for my taste, and has lots to explain in terms of crafting recipe and operation. This gramophone mod attempts to be more realistic.
How to use
There are three vital components to make a gramophone work, those are:
- The music player (default is the gramophone),
- One or more speakers,
- One or more music discs (or vinyl records)
A disc shelf is also included. Each shelf has 10 slots for holding 10 different types of music discs.
Caution: The shelf, while it really looks nice, it could add to the lag on very low-end computers. This is because it uses entities to show how many discs are in the shelf (reduced to a 2:1 scale).
There are no crafting recipes as-of now. This is why this mod is still WIP. I don't want to add a simple crafting recipe for this as I find it very unrealistic. To get one, use `creative` mode or `/giveme` command. I plan to add crafting recipes in the future, where they will actually make sense.
Included are 9 music discs with royalty-free recordings of classical music.
