Even with my struggling to find time to play VRchat, every session is always worthwhile and awesome. Most I find I can hang around with my VRchat friends, some of which are solo, and the rest is just reflecting on VRchat & life as a whole. Similar to March I had almost as much free time to hop on, yet had fun whenever I did manage to hop on, especially with my buddy Hunt & Kobi. Just exploring, chillin’, catching up on things, and just admiring VRchat while also wondering how I should interact with the VRchat community as a whole.
Every time I look back at what we’ve done it’s always like an episode of anime where it’s highly emotional, quite fun, and just full of emotional “feels” with the adventures we’ve been on. You can’t go back to “what was”, but you can stay with “what is”; Remember the past while living in the present. The various background music which gets stuck in your mind from the visiting many chill worlds, the feel, the vibe. It all sticks with you. You dream it, you think in a VRchat way… Taking pictures…. Laughing. I still praise VRchat while respecting it highly, even if there feels to be a bit of a “fade” within the community. Certain things are fading making it easy to spot the differences from “what once was” to “what is”, and “what shall be” for the future; Granted, we don’t know what the future holds.
I’m aware I share way too many images, but all these images hold something special to me, thus I’m having to share the majority of what I’ve taken. I’m sure I can prune a few images here and there, though feel that would ruin the whole purpose of the articles. I’m wanting to share the raw experiences of each month, maybe even posting twice a month to ease up on the size of each article posting. So many fun memories, lots of fun moments (as noted above).
Took a while to just chill, explore a few worlds before finding Hunt standing behind me, startling me heavily to where he laughed. He saw an opportunity, took it, and startled the crap out of me. In a silent world you’re not expecting anybody to then see someone standing behind you (VR making you see things in real world perspectives) just catches you off guard. It led to us finding out where another one of our buddies found their cute floofy foxy avatar, having them join us, some fun amusements, and to then venture to Matsix’s world to try and get a proper fan shot.
In the above images with the Sakura trees (that Japanese shrine) I was hanging around with Koreans with them being chill and friendly. Curious, talkative in a polite manner having some nice bits of basic conversations between us. A few came up to me, curious, so I tried interacting with them in between these images. I didn’t really talk. I did laugh, never talked though. I gestured thumbs up, made sure to be interacting with them. They were cool, even befriending one of them.
The two floofy images has me chuckling because I can still recall Hunt dying laughing when these images were being taken. Just the whole silliness of it is what makes VRchat awesome. Just the thought of having heard Hunt laughing has me laughing heh. Fun times, fun times.
The friend’s list was borked on April 20th making things highly difficult because sad people had to DDoS VRchat (or so the rumour goes), among other technical difficulties. Safe guards and protections for VRchat were faultering, yet still more-or-less working. People wanted to see VRchat suffer so other people ended up suffering, but we still made the best of it.
Was still lagging a lot from my own computer side (own technical diffiuclties) yet had my fair share of fun. Hunt wanted to meet Blue because his list was working, mine wasn’t, so Hunt went off and I followed him. Tried to headpat Blue, tried speaking to her (not sure if she understood my robotic voice from lag) and just re-explored the place. It changed. This world brings back a lot of memories from when I met up with HoloTheWiseVR & Maiya in this world, and even during the Christmas period.
Hunt had to go sleep, I lost sight of Blue and I was left alone in VRchat having said I would hop off as well… I looked at the world list, saw Loli Squad Fields needing to go there before heading to sleep. I spent a good 20-30 minutes alone there, just chillin’…. Reflecting. I was examining the map, exploring every little bit it had in it…. Admiring it.
I reflected on my computer situation, on VRchat (community & etc) on how it behaves, what events I should partake in, thinking of what brought me to VRchat through Nagzz21’s & Oathmeal’s videos…. Just lost in thought allowing the music to carry me places. People come, people go; Memories are made, times change, and like the pedals in the image things move around you. You can be a part of that flow, or you can walk along the river banks, something I felt I’ve been doing while occasionally taking a dip in the river before coming back out.
If people enjoy my presence then that’s awesome. If not, that’s a shame. Not much I can do there. I am however grateful to have friends who try and make the most of the gaming fun we’re in, regardless of my lag stutterings or not. I’m thankful for the friends I’ve made in VRchat, in Rising World, Busou Shinki hobby, and even briefly in Dollfie Dream Community, among others. Even if it may appear as I have forgotten you, I haven’t. As corny and plastic as it may sound, I genuinely respect people, even if I tend to flip from from stress.
I’m genuinely grateful to the VRchat community, though feel I’ve over-praised the community as well. I may have over-praised the community making things appear plastic. Everything in moderation. Everyone is still human. I make mistakes; We’re all human.
I had to call it a night with it being very late in the night during that session. I had work, I needed to sleep, yet took the time to fully admire the beauty of this lovely simple world. Nice and chill.
While setting up for a shot Hunt startled the crap out of me (as in another session) because I was not expecting anybody to be 1) in the world, and 2) That close to me. It’s like seeing a Weeping Angel from Dr. Who being behind you ready to murder you. No wonder horror games are scary…..
Lagged a hell of a lot, yet had my fun. It’s forcing me to be a mute.
I honestly wish I was far more familiar of SCP universe far sooner being far more aware of the worlds I’ve visited before. They were far more interactive than I assumed they were to be wishing I could have seen proper entities trigger when they needed to. Visiting them now they’re either scuffed or >Redacted<. REEE!~
One world was scuffed (SCP-093), SCP-087 was removed (one of my favourite ones), and others were just a shell of their former self. It was depressing we could no longer properly play with SCP in ways I had back in 2017 & 2018.
Only one remotely interesting being roleplay worlds & SCP-3008.
I honestly love the last three shots from our April sessions. They really look like some game cover image, or something along those lines. Wallpaper worthy. If I knew photoshot I would touch it up to also be used on Wallpaper Engine, and etc. I love those images because everything just feels “right” to me. April was a fun month still having my fair share of fun. Struggled to play, finding myself having in-game issues when playing on April 20th with the friend list issues, and such. I have no real complaints this month because it’s been genuinely fun with everything just being on my end with my own computer. I’m working my way around it thankful I have friends who are trying to help me around it by still making sure we all have fun.
I’m still honestly thankful to have met cool people from VRchat interested in just casually hanging around, having fun, and just being chill. It is what keeps bringing me back to VRchat.
