With and without VR I still genuinely enjoy VR and VRchat. Even with my Oculus Rift crapping out software wise I’m forced to play desktop mode, though do have a few moments where I’m able to play in VR. Still have my fun, still enjoy exploring places, and still have my moments hanging out with various friends.
Virtual Market 3 also forced me into VRchat to check out various worlds, thus the image count going from 180 to 228. It caused my images to skyrocket because I wanted to share the beauty within VRchat, especially Virtual Market 3, an event where content creators can showcase their booths for others to purchase from. Even in desktop mode I’m honestly thankful for the friends I have befriended in VRchat allowing us to have fun in various forms.
I’ve been having heavy Oculus Rift issues, if you want to familiarize yourself with it then please view the following links below:
Unsure where to go next, we decided to go to a horror world because Maiya loves their horror fun. This one was genuinely scary once I progressed further than the first time. It genuinely spooked me, something which shows why VRchat & horror worlds are fun when things work as intended.
WDKS VRChat Horror Experience
You may have some “try hards”, or maybe simply “immune” people not scared of these situations. We were. I’m in VR, thus putting me face first into these situations. When you’re in VR you’re exposed to so much more because it feels like you’re actually there. You can’t hide behind a pillow, or anything. You’re there…..
When you’re separated it becomes all that much more terrifying. You loose your support. I don’t want to say “meat shield”…. You lose your morale support. Even in a VR game losing someone becomes paralyzing to the point I started panicking.
I guess it’s a bit of a Scooby Doo thing where its both comical and scary, depending on how and when you view things.
We were terrified good. The school horrors, and everything. It gave us a good spook because it was done right, it worked, and it was smooth. October shall be a “fun” experience for horror worlds.
Maiya had to go snooze by this point (10 or 11 pm), thus nudging me to go solo exploring some more. Went exploring a few more worlds before time ran out for everybody and myself.
We had fun exploring a few worlds, or I hope Blue did. I tried to keep more on Blue’s beats instead mine as to not overwhelm Blue with my world hopping speed. Tried to examine everything. Hanging out with Blue is awesome. Without VR now its becoming harder and harder to hang out with people I respect and admire because I just can’t motion, or gesture. Interaction is key.
Every time I hang out with Blue its always special because of how Blue is. Even though I don’t show it properly in return, I do highly respect Blue to the point each visit & exploration is highly notable because of how rarely we tend to hang out. Once a month? Again, I blame my Oculus Rift errors.
Every time you drop by I thank you highly for all the fun moments we have. Seeing you puzzle solve, checking things out, your expert choices in adorable and unique avatars. I love and respect those moments. 🙂
My social anxiety still gets in the way, but yeah. Hope we can keep on having fun in VRchat 🙂
I’m an introvert struggling to be an extrovert, though it works at times. Other times not so much. For this case I can have a nice laugh at it because I turn it into game of “can they catch me?” ….. I’ve done it a few times, even to my friends.
The folks in the Touhou avatars were curious as to where I went, thus they relayed where I last was saying how I climbed up a rock, went up the structure, swiftly finding out where I was. I conversed with them, we exchanged a few basic words. We had fun. Could have befriended them if I wasn’t shy, though we had our brief chill moment. I continued jumping around admiring the scenery, checking out the doll nearby, among other hidden areas. They had fun changing between Touhou avatars.
Social anxiety is a curse.
September 7th, 2019
Was trying out the newly added Discord grouping streaming mode on September 7th onward. It works, its however highly choppy causing the video to buffer constantly. Its why I don’t stream anymore because 1) Computer requirements, & 2) Not allowed to play VR anymore because of Oculus Rift’s various hostage demands.
It may be forcing me onto the Rift S, or even onto a new device all together. Facebook is so greedy its not even funny, not even in a comical tone.
September 8th, 2019:
Batteries were dying out harshly, however forced myself to keep staying longer and longer hiding away at Matsix’s cabin. Chilled there for awhile, someone said “Hi” to me, thus I noted “hi” back. We conversed, we explored. We had fun and I showed a person named ‘Box’ cool worlds. We visited a few Nier Automata worlds, and anything fancy. They loved it 🙂
My Oculus Rift spazzed out forcing me off the device and VRchat. It forced me to call it a night prematurely. I can honestly be on VR for a very lengthy period of time. I honestly wanted to share what made VRchat awesome to Box, however denied. I feel like trash for what Oculus Rift had done to me. I befriended more cool people unable to hang out with them, thus further stunting my experience with VRchat & everybody itself. It could be so much more, yet its constant frustration.
I’m currently in the process of saving up for an Valve Index. So much regret and frustration.
September 14th, 2019:
The surprise and hilarity from when Kobi ran up to me to vent about his workplace unable to do their job, thus taking venting his frustrating out on me. I’m cool with it, more so with how Kobi scared a friend of ours who overheard Kobi venting harshly about his workplace. Delta gradually backed up away and away while I was making note of what Kobi was saying.
Absolutely random and hilarious. This is why I love VRchat because it turns “toxic” moments into hilarious innocent moments. I don’t mind, vent. Let it all out because the more you keep things bottles up the more you’ll end up like exploding steam locomotives of old.
I’m probably missing something, though however feel that it has something to do with Nagzz21’s old Youtube unboxing Monday streams where he kept getting spoons. Oathmeal is holding out on the clutterly, unless it has something to do with it instead being shiny.
I don’t know…. Oathmeal & Lanfear are cats, Renge is a fox….. This is baffling. 🙂
I’m also happy to visit any Lanfear & Oathmeal world because of how awesome I find them to be as VRchat folks. Their Neko Nights, simple chill world, and such. Their VRchat lore, among other amusements. If my VR gear ever works again I honestly want to meet & greet them properly. All the constant lagspikes even making me miss out on greeting Zentraya properly. I honestly need to push for those moments again once I get my VR gear functioning without lagspikes.
Had fun times when my Oculus Rift headset would work. When it works, it works. I also tried visiting Neko Sister’s Cabin in a public world to only crash out because of some avatar swapping. I was in lurky mode trying to stay out of sight, out of mind. Again, I turn it into a game to see how long I’m noticed, if at all. Social anxiety, and all.
I loved visiting Neko Sisters Cabin also spotting Christmas & Halloween vibes. Cool move. Even the neat hotspring, among other cool simple rest areas. Nicely done by Legends.
September 24, 2019 – Virtual Market 3 Event (Desktop mode):
Virtual Market 3 is an annual event in VRchat showcasing objects & avatars to sell mainly to the Japanese market. Though, foreigners are welcome, thus the global acknowledgement of allowing others to visit this place. Its a week long event allowing people to visit worlds to explore booths to purchase things. You have to go to their linked sites (noted at booths) to be able to purchase things, or simply use their public avatars (sometimes with watermarks) to take as souvenirs.
Everything from here on forwards is desktop mode because of how Oculus refuses to acknowledge my Oculus Rift. Even with driver reinstalls it simply refuses to read it.
I could have honestly gave the Virtual Market thing its own blog posting, yet shall force it all into one blog posting for simplicity sake in certain ways. I feel cheated unable to further explore the worlds, thus just uniting it all under one blog posting. Future me may curse at this, it is what it is.
If someone could honestly design a VR Mecha game in this way things would be awesome. Just freely walk up to a console, cycle through your mecha, and see various holographic detailings of it. Would make for a cool mecha game.
Virtual Market 3 – Part 2 (Desktop mode)
Atelier Alca’s booth is one of my favourite because of how its professionally designed. Very catchy, colourful, and very fancy. You can choose between characters, their customization, and how neat they are.
I’m tempted in experimenting with obtaining their avatar.
September 27, 2019:
I approve of the Virtual Market idea. I tried going through everything I was able ot manage. Needs more time. I wish we could have had another week (2 weeks total) to explore everything. There are people who want to visit it, yet have life to deal with, thus unable to attend.
I viewed probably half of these worlds, or a quarter at the least. I find them awesome, I love the concept. I wanted to continue exploring the worlds with them being unlisted. A shame. Cool concept, bad timing.
Bonus Images – Desktop Mode:
Just some extra images while showing certain avatars to certain people. Inside jokes & everything. Delta with a Delta world (Deltagem | Possibly stolen avatars) containing familiar avatars they’ve once used.
Just a few bonus images from Friend’s POV because my VR gear is down. There are moments they tend to capture which I’m oblivious to. Many memorable moments to note.
This may have indeed been an equally as big of a blog posting as previous ones, only because I wanted to get everything shared all at once. I could have split the original images & Virtual Market 3 into their own blog posting, though feel cheated I was unable to finish exploring VM3 because of how it timed out.
I’m thankful for the friends I have befriended in VRchat allowing me to still have fun regardless if I play on VR or desktop mode. Fun is fun, and you can have fun regardless. It honestly is a shame my sessions tend to be stunted in some way because of technical difficulties, though however happy I have numerous memorable moments to make note of. Many fun moments to call back upon to have fun boasting & praising how fun VRchat is.
Thanks for viewing and hope to see you in VRchat the next time I play. Hopefully when I can get VR working again.
