2021.09.24 17:51 johnfox87 If you think Star Citizen is ‘just’ a game, you’re not dreaming nearly big enough
So this post was inspired while my friends and I were making a machinima, Adrift, which was entirely filmed in Star Citizen. (I promise this post isn’t just a promo for the series, but if you want to check it out, it’s here.) I had this incredible feeling, almost an out-of-body experience, during the shooting. I started to feel like we weren’t just dinking around in a video game. We were actually at work in a real universe.
Now before you say, u/johnfox87, you weren’t present in some alternative reality, that’s just delirium from staring at the game for hours on end, let me tell you our story, and try to convince you that we Citizens are all on the cusp of something much bigger. And that Star Citizen isn’t at the periphery of the future, it’s at the core.
Metaversal Machinamatics When we started shooting, we didn’t know exactly what we were getting ourselves into. We figured ‘we know how to play this game, let’s just film it’ but once we had a storyboard and really specific ideas of how to shoot the thing, we knew it was going to take a whole ‘nother level of commitment.
And it sucked at times. We probably 30k’d a thousand times between the entire team. Not an exaggeration.
But there was a night when we had been working into the wee hours and needed to get one last shot: a closeup of our character Pearl mining by hand. The whole team was exhausted but it’s so hard to get everyone together in the same place without error, with FOIP working, that we were pressing to finish this scene. I was responsible for operating a multitool that we were using to light her face. And when our director called action, there was something mesmerizing about those crimson energy waves striking the rock just in front of her, illuminating her helmet and dimming the stars beyond. And once my colleague started puppeteering her lines with FOIP, it felt totally real. But not as an immersive gameplay experience. It felt like we were creating something that existed beyond the game, something from our imaginations. It felt like we had real agency.
I started to realize that the line between our ‘real’ space and the game space wasn’t as clear as I thought.
Which brings me to the metaverse. You know, the idea that we’re building a whole rich, integrated world in digital space that’s conquering our meatspace universe. The idea has been floating around forever. For me, the first introduction was Neuromancer but obviously now with Ready Player One and Enders Game getting big box offices a lot of non-futurists have started thinking about this. Blockchain art, VR, generative AI: all the cutting-edge technologies are porting us into a digital existence.
You might love this idea, or it might freak you out. To me, it’s a little of both.
Digital Money Never Sleeps Here’s the thing about the metaverse, and this won’t surprise you: the big companies are coming for it. Zuckerberg said he considers Facebook a metaverse company. If that’s where people and their digital wallets are headed, that’s where Amazon, Google, Apple, Netflix are all going to be. They’ll want a metaverse that they control, and one that exists to make them money.
What excites me about this space is we are in direct competition with them. And we can win. We just need the right platforms.
Mythic Citizens To be clear, Star Citizen isn’t the metaverse. It’s just a module that plugs into something much bigger. But for now, an open-world game is the best sandbox to create our own reality. And the more we create in-game, the more we get to decide what our future looks like.
Look, I’m not suggesting that just playing SC is some kind of noble or revolutionary act.
But I do think as we build whatever the hell it is we’re building, machinima will be the mythopoetic engine of the metaverse. They can monetize the metaverse, they can privatize whole regions, but as long as we have our stories, we can still express our values. And a value system is the beating heart of every culture going back to the stone age. Machinima is the direct descendent of the griot at the campfire telling the monomyth.
Prediction: in 100 years schools will devote as much time to video literacy as they do to text literacy today. If you want to interact in these spaces, you can play, but if you want to create, you need to understand the language and film. Even in a polyglot, diffuse metaverse, it’s the language we’ll all be speaking. The storytellers most of all.
I should mention that CIG is trying to make money here too, but at least for now, it feels like they’re just building platforms, not trying to control how these spaces are used, and what stories we’re telling. To be honest, I’m not sure even they realize how much potential their game has.
The addition of FOIP wasn’t a feature addition, it was a paradigm shift. When they added sound to movies, it took years to figure out how to do effective sound effects, music, and dialogue specifically for the film. Same thing with FOIP: it’s going to take years to grok just how much can come from this one upgrade.
Manifesting the Metaverse When we shared the first part of Adrift, someone commented that <<“Machinima” wasn’t necessary. This is cinema.>> I absolutely appreciate the sentiment. It’s really nice to see our hard work recognized. But I do want to make a point here. We’re not trying to make cinema. We’re trying to elevate machinima to the level of cinema. It’s like when photography was still developing, the best compliment a photographer could get was ‘this is as good as a painting.’ It took decades but now you see photo exhibits at every major museum. It’s finally become accepted as its own form. I don’t think it will take decades for machinima to reach that level, but one of the goals of Adrift is to QT the progression.
If we’re going to keep the metaverse open and accessible, we need to be making the stuff we want in it. Don’t leave it up to Jeff Bezos to choose the shape of our future. He’ll probably choose something that looks like a dick.
So join us. Start dreaming up stories that don’t rely on lore. Write scripts, practice moving the in-game camera (it ain’t easy), steal the best storytelling techniques from Hollywood movies. Make the machinima that you want to see.
The multiverse needs machinima. And it needs all of us making it, and making it better. Right now, Star Citizen is the best place to be doing that.

2021.09.24 17:51 butteredbiscuits2198 Do you think she's thirsty?
I sent a message to this guy who I knew for about 8 years. He always showed interest in me back then but I always had a bf so I never did anything, last thing he ever asked me was to add him on snap and I never did. I been more active on my socials lately and he's been watching my stories. I'm single and ready now so I hit him up saying
👀 Hey, are you single?
My friend said I shouldn't have sent that because it makes me look thirsty, and all my cards are exposed and I'm now in a vulnerable spot.
Is this true?
I was going to play it off if he said he wasn't single like "ok respect, just wanted to make sure so I didn't intrude on anything you have going on" and if he was then obviously I was gonna suggest we catch up.
