Heyo! I’m just loving this game that it’s doing a good job at curing my depression that I’ve spawned back in 2017 that I’m just loving the experiences I’m having in this game. I wanted to share more awesomeness from the VRchat community. It may be image heavy for those with poor internet, yet shows how much I love VRchat.
I’m just absolutely LOVING VRchat (even if I do play solo half the time) because of how much fun there is within the community. I love how creative people how, how randomly amusing people are, and just how much fun visiting worlds is on those low days. The high days you get to encounter people just coming up to you that things “just happen” that you go on these crazy adventures that it’s like a night out at some club, yet it’s all in VRchat. It’s awesome. On the low days I simply visit worlds just to see what’s possible that it all balances out in one way or another.
Pardon that it’s also all Scathach on my blog. I shall break that cycle eventually with something else once things start playing nice again. Maybe more Bismarck, maybe back to Renge, among other possibilities.
– VRChat Experiences:
The word “vain” seems to be coming up a lot with how we’re focusing a lot on ourselves (not just myself, yet others viewing their own things on Twitch when clipping things) that I’m sometimes stuck pondering how to share things more about the community and less about myself. I wanted to share my love of Scathach so half of these images are of me just experimenting learning how to use the recently added camera while the other half is of the community being itself. I love it so much that I do lightly apologies if I do appear “vain”, as loosely mentioned by people when they’re hyped about things from their POV as well.
I simply love VRchat that you should simply focus what’s around “me” (Scathach) if my images are “solo”. VRchat has awesome worlds that I simply love exploring them whenever the game is at its low in activity.
While taking pictures out in the “wild” I was startled by a “Hello!” from a lovely American Tennessee girl whom we went on an adventure with on this map, a horror map, until we got lost in a Bob Ross map. These are the moments which make VRchat so attractive and popular, among many other reasons.
Also, at one point I was worried that my Oculus Rift wouldn’t function again after giving me a stupid -8602 error that it constantly kept blacking out my screen. After pranking MAD with some ducks [Here] with Fait, and friends I eventually had issues that caused me to back out of VRchat to then feel frustrated for a week that I couldn’t VR (nor VRchat) until that was fixed. Took me a week that I was eventually able to get back that my conclusion is that my PC simply struggled with power (maybe processing power) that I need to take it easier when it comes to gaming. I guess this shows that VR is still at its infancy while also being highly demanding on the hardware that we still need to get it to where Sword Art Online shows it.
Hanging out with this person was highly awesome (off stream) that we even wandered into a semi-horror map with someone having a bubble field active. We even stumbled across a bird whom we all chased around, as well as had fun dying laughing doing so. It was a blast! I wish I recorded that for the Youtubes. What I however documented was us on the Titanic, a ship that used to be my favourite vessel before I dived into the whole WW2 side of things.
The great thing about VRchat is that you can basically/virtually (whatever word you want to use) import any world map into the game to do whatever you want in there. I loved how the mighty Yamato from PSO2 was imported into VRchat for us to walk around and admire. Wish more was done to her (Yamato) though to a ship listed further down this posting. Needs to be more polished and interactive.
VRchat is an awesome platform showing what is possible with VR that it basically contains what we would consider “demos” and “proof of concept” ideas realized that you can have genuine actual polished VR games if these game studios genuinely desired to make actual VR games. I even made a video showing how even Sword Art Online VR can be an actual thing [VR Asuna] that we’re seeing Namco testing the waters in an gimmicky manner with “fake” VR mobile VR. I guess it still works, yet needs Vive & Oculus Support to really catch on.
You know Pixelmon for Minecraft? Pixelmon with VR support while using [cyube VR] as a template is what I’m imagining, yet won’t happen because it’s “too risky” for the game industry that they’d much rather make cheap mobages.
I honestly really do love Animal Crossing, yet hated what New Leaf had done by not allowing you to plot where they (Villagers) would live that they would destroy the trees you placed, the gardens, flowers, pathways, and such that I raged and gave up. People labeled me a crazy idiot, yet I love having control in what I build that I play Minecraft & Rising World for more precise control. I enjoyed the mobile game as well, yet dropped out of it because it was slightly grindy and I lack time to really play that.
VRchat is however still buggy that I tried joining my buddy back in the world yet she disappeared that I had to call it a night during this session. All the images above are from one single session that happened on a Monday that I missed 80% of Nagzz21’s stream. Was a bit disappointed I couldn’t join her again that I had fun catching up on Nagzz21’s Monday community stream on YouTube when he gained his Mafia outfit.
– Camera V2 Update:
A week later when I had more time the VRchat developers noted that they updated the client to now contain a somewhat sleeker and more detailed camera with filters and such. It was one of those best updates that I just hopped right in to have lots of fun grabbing more pictures in that joking narcissistic manner trying to learn more about this camera that I found how it how ticks. it ticks in a clunky & funny manner, yet it’s reliable.
There’s this meme in VRchat with Nagzz21 calling Megumin “Megaman” while also shouting “Explosssiioonn!” that I found it hilarious that I became her in VRchat to reference that.
– Nagzz21 Sub Explosion Semi-ful:
– Nagzz21’s Explossssssion!~
They should be embedded into the article that I hope you can play them. Simply hit play.
Me being Scathach seems quite fitting because I simply hang back allowing VRchat to simply be itself that I record everything that happens. I sometimes become a part of the fun, yet it’s just mostly observing & recording whatever is happening that I love everything about it, such as this little dude being chased & dabbing.
I’ve encountered two shares of “Hackers” incidents with one being at the Japanese Shrine inverting both the main character POV and the controls [Twitch clip here] with the second one being on this Japanese fireworks map teleporting me up to the rooftop so I could view the fireworks. They don’t really worry me, yet it does how what people are capable of with messing with you that it forces people into private worlds. The second one was a confusing moment, yet something I passed off as a “good will” action.
– Camera Antics/ Multi-Session/ World Exploring:
The next batch of images being me having more fun with VRchat, the fun V2 Camera, and just testing out Twitch streaming again, and all that loveliness.
Even with the patch notes people simply jump onto VRchat to simply have fun that I have to explain what the floating orb next to me is by mentioning that’s is the recent camera the VRchat developer have added to the game. I’m also approached asking what the red line is from my camera when I (or them) hit escape that I have yet to witness that. I have nothing to say to that except to be confused.
WARSPITE! YATTA!~ I found a Warspite in a public world, yet her avatar is rough because it was hastily uploaded into a public world. Her skin is invisible to the transparent filter, her hands are large, and she can’t thumbs up. Other than those issues she’s awesome that she’s quite shy, well endowed, adorable, and photogenic. I wish I had her & Bismarck as my avatar, and I could actually have her if I took the time to upload the one public Warspite avatar to my profile. The thing would be I would want some custom objects with my avatars to stand out now that I’m spoiled by Scathach.
I love KanColle, and I do have a KanColle web account, yet feel more needs to be done on an Azur Lane mobile game manner, or at least make KanColle Arcade available on a Steam platform with transactions available through it, or something…. Even a proper VR experience where you’re probably using a drone to follow them, or something. It needs to come to PC with arcade functions, or more, while being supported over many years. RIP KanColle Kai for Vita, you were a great idea yet stupidly supported that I wish your game developers cared more for your concept. Sorry that KanColle Kai had to die off because the game developers are fearful of many things……
– Scathach Mom:
“Mom! Mom! Mom! What do I do? What do I say?”
One night I came home feeling frustrated because workplaces treat employees like slaves (or mine does) that I just jumped onto VRchat to find myself becoming an “mom” after joining a Lasagna world. I was a poor mother being somewhat blunt that I told my “son” to just talk to the girl while laughing and chuckling through it all that it worked out in the end. They exchanged Discord names being a “happily ever after” story. A silly Knuckles even came in doing the “I don’t feel so good” meme that he shattered away. He even cubed all our POV (shown below) with a blue cube that it was another silly thing to note.
What a silly night that was haha!
And that wraps up that amusing silly night. I was briefly an mother for 2 hours that it was an “interesting” experience.
– Streaming Testing & Ramen Time!:
After confirming my Oculus Rift worked again I wanted to up the bar some more to see how much my computer could handle streaming. It was quite laggy because of the whole Oculus Mirror thing that some worlds are a big issue for me while the in-game camera works a little well, yet you can tell it’s like running to VRchat clients at the same time. One client sometimes has issues running smoothly in populated areas that you can imagine what it’s like running “two” clients at the same time that it tends to chug.
This person named “MOM” enjoyed singing that I recorded her a few times yet waiting to get permission to share it, thus haven’t shared it yet. Some little warmup amusements before wandering into the actual VRchat world. And just to note I found this autumn world highly beautiful that I stayed there for a little while taking screenshots with transparency using the V2 Camera’s filter options.
Not salty or anything. Just trying to be witty that if anything appears negative or salty that’s just me trying to spin things into an amusing manner. Hope it worked :).
A guy in the Temple Shrine a few images up (not shown) tried telling me that the steam coming out of my Ramen bowl was actually squares, something I realized a little too late. I realized too late because I assumed it was something else that I accidentally came off as a jerk saying “Yeah, I know…” type deal. Sorry! You meant the squares on my bowl such as the ones in the below image.
People are clever that you can use the data filter on the camera V2 to spot the invisible walls/objects that it helps you navigate yourself closer to a target point or come across a trigger wall in a horror map.
– Heavy Cruiser Suzuya:
Suuuuzuuuuuyyaaaa~ (said slowly and teasingly)
Two clips of me trying to teasingly say her name.
1) Suzuya (Normal):
2) Suzuya (Softly):
Taken from the Stream of when I first stumbled across her beautiful beautiness.
For those baffled as to why I’m nerding out, I’m sorry. The early days of my KanColle hype is going out that I can finally see Suzuya in 3D, in motion, and as an interactive experience! This map needs to be supported by some War museum to pay respects to both history and the vessels. That, and because of KanColle. The guns fire and you can fly in a Zuiun! I love that! THAT’s what we need in as an actual playable VR war game on steam!
I’m happy you can fly planes that it’s like actually flying an actual plane. Almost. The way you fly is by grabbing the purple rectangle in the cockpit without letting go to then rotate it as you would an actual plane by tilting it sideways and such that you can yaw things nicely. You can actually use the tail portion of the plane to come in titled and angled that it’s a nice step us in using Flight Simulator X heh. You can even fire the guns on the Zuiun while even being shot down by Suzuya’s own AA guns.
I was told this map was to see some updates of actual ship to ship combat that it would be interesting to see such. Makes me wonder if you could eventually steer the ship to other ships, and have ship to ship aircraft battles. This is the things I’m talking about when it comes to showing the potential of VR games that this is a platform for “demos” and “proof of concepts” that you could turn into actual legit working VR games for Steam. This is why I’m here and why I love VRchat!
The funny thing about this experience was how I could feel artificial G-Forces without actually feeling the real world version of it when piloting the Zuiun while banking and turning. When making sharp steep turns, among other manouvers the stomach would sink and react to what you’re doing that you can easily get VR sickness from it, yet somehow survived all that. Feeling that ‘G-Force’ though, madness. It makes you sweat and gives you that nice rush that it’s like almost flying an actual plane. For those that flown in an airliner would know the sensation you get during liftoff of that sudden lift, that’s what I felt at times. That lift sensation.
I honestly could have split this into its own article, and I may later if the map evolves. For now I’ll leave it here to later spotlight this map in its own section on my blog if we were to gain ship to ship combat, among other rumoured things.
– Concluding Images:
The last few images to wrap up my overly large blog posting being other fun images I couldn’t forget about, yet had to share.
Video of the spider & the PT Silent Hill map can be found below:
It’s thanks to visiting this Japanese Shrine map that ‘Queen Tepe’ came up to me asking for help to test out an Horror map, something I would eventually find out to be a PT Horror Map. Nice! I died laughing at Tepe’s crazy screams that he at times sounded like a Raptor, or even other weird entities.
The green ‘data filter’ I shared above for the maze was also used here in the PT Silent Hill horror map to see the triggers, something I eventually figured to do part way into the adventure. One of those random happenings.
I’m even trying to learn how to make a world that I made one for myself. It’s still very rough that many things need to be tweaked and change to be more of a fun map. It’s just something I wanted to learn and have a home linked to a Youtube screen, and such. I wanted to be more in control over my own “home” world.
VRchat is awesome! Even if there’s down times of where I spend time exploring worlds there’s still something to be gained from doing even the “boring” things. Just seeing what people have created, how VRchat ticks, and just seeing what VRchat is capable of is enough to entertain me that I love what VRchat is all about. It’s making people learn, making people happy, interactive, among other great things.
Now that’s a Canadian stereotype I can get behind. I can’t get behind “aboot”, or the other more cringy stereotypes because of how low tier they are, but this… This is awesome.
I’m having a blast! Lacking time to play, yet when I do I seem to have fun in each and every session I can. Though, there’s this issue of people hiding in private worlds that it tends to ruin things for everybody that they need to be more open to those around them. Other than that, VRchat is a blast!
Thanks for giving me fun memories, for bringing me on adventures, and for being awesome!
