A VHS may be used with an appropriate television to reduce the player's boredom and/or, in the case of some tapes, to provide skill experience points. It is important to note that an antique television is incapable of utilising VHS tapes, a Premium Technologies or Valutech television is required. The two main types of VHS are "Home VHS", featuring home recordings (from camcorders, of TV shows, sports games, etc.) and "Retail VHS", featuring official releases of movies and television shows.

Types

Home VHS

"Home VHSs" spawn uniquely (once per VHS title) and feature a variety of pre-apocalyptic scenarios such as birthday parties, weddings, sports recordings, and general lore. A few work as skill tapes, adding XP for some skills not covered by retail tapes.

Retail VHS

"Retail VHSs" features a variety of movies and television shows from the world of Project Zomboid. All of the television skill shows can be found as retail VHS tapes. Most retail VHSes are parodies of TV shows or movies from the early 1990s and function solely to reduce the player character's boredom and produce some light amusement in the player themselves. Unlike specific home VHSes, these can spawn multiple times.

Distribution

Buildings

Can be found inside wardrobes, side tables, and desks in houses. They can also be found on shelves and counters in these buildings:

  • Fossoil
  • Gift Store
  • Storage Unit
  • VHS Stores

Vehicles

Can be found in the glove box and on seats of vehicles.

Effects

Some VHS's can affect the player's Moodles, unlock Recipes and grant skill experience points.

An automatically-updating index of these VHSes can be found here - the table below also contains the effect values, but these are absolute internal values; the actual amount of XP you receive is of course dependent on any XP boosts from traits and/or having read skill books.

Trivia

The real VHS (Video Home System) tape used plastic film coated with magnetic material to record data. The tape was wound onto a pair of spools and had to be re-wound after every watch. Ubiquitous throughout the 1980s and 90s, VHSes were eventually replaced by DVDs, Blu-Rays, and present-day streaming services.
