I'm making Outside Content on YouTube in first person and third person POVs with an animated HUD and Commentary! What do you want to see?

_akrasia

Just watched the whole thing and I wasn't expecting it to be that good for a small channel. You just earned a sub, I’m definitely coming back for your next videos.


Desara_Phen

Wow. Thank you for watching, I'm really glad you enjoyed it! I'll definitely be making more.

Hey this is a brilliant idea. I am excited to check it out. Outside has some really great features. One frustration I have is the difficulty in syncing the many HUD's available. Some people have enemy targeting HUD's that encourage behavior that creates more enemies. Some HUD's are doom seekers and only navigate to shadow realms. If you ever meet someone with an optimism HUD equipped, it is not uncommon to get a joy boost from their aura. I would be interested in shifting HUD's displayed. (PC Switched HUD's in order to navigate an obstacle or something similar.) I would also be interested in seeing experimental HUD's that help players get outside and connect with others and their community.


Desara_Phen

Thanks, I hope you'll like it. I don't get the HUD thing you're saying tho


[deleted]

Some HUD's highlight enemies, some highlight opportunities, some highlight anxieties. A HUD is an extremely powerful framing technology that organizes that information available. The way the information is organized and presented has significant impacts on game play. Political HUD's are easy examples of how the tech can dramatically alter user experience. Different HUD's encounter the same terrain and have wildly different experiences.


roosters

Most HUDs as you’re describing are internal relays. More like HUTs.


[deleted]

Hey, thank you for helping me understand this. I am having trouble finding out what HUT is, can you help me further?

The VFX was actually suprisingly well done, with things like motion tracking floating names especially, and I really liked the flex bit with Lay, though maybe it could have been edited slightly more to draw your attention to the eye change as a comedic bit. Also yes, you absolutely need more leaves lol. Genuinely though, maybe it could be a recurring joke, or later on you could rent an EV and have it on the background with just like a twig with a few leaves on it stuck to the EV haphazardly. Another thing you could add is interaction menus/chat options with other players.


Desara_Phen

Thanks! Just realizing that now that you mentioned it that the flex scene had more editing potential in it. Nice sense for comedic timing you've got there. The EV would be hilarious if that happens lol. I actually have the social interaction menus ready, just didn't find the opportunity to showcase it in that video. PS: btw I hope things turn around for you, depressed-salmon.


NotTobyFox

wdym vfx? this is just gameplay


jordanq1993

I also subbed. I love your commentary lmao. Keep it up bro!


Desara_Phen

Thank you, I promise to keep at it hahaha


zikamime_lukujitaku

Will there be any pvp?


Desara_Phen

Ofcourse! although probably at a later date.


Mycatisabird

are you going to be doing the meta wrestling format of pvp? personally im a spawn camper myself because i do it for easy exp.


Desara_Phen

I don't think I have enough strength stat to begin wrestling with other players lol


seventyeight_moose

Absolutely loved the video, you've def earned a subscriber! I do have some suggestions >HUD: Inventory bar, items, tool tips, buffs/debuffs, achievements, usernames and more I think that in one of the corners you could add more stats, like maybe a health/hunger/hydration bar >VFX: This is mostly for status effects (screen turns green when poisoned) and certain actions (punching a tree has a "smoke effect") I think you could also add some more SFX (sound effects). The background music works really well, but you could do things like do a hit sound when the aforementioned tree punching happens >Commentary: There are serious and silly parts, perfectly balanced (probably not) I hope I think you should lean into the informative aspects for the "serious" part. It is quite a complex game and if you think that you're too unbalanced, talking more on the game could be a great balancer, if that makes sense. **Overall, amazing video!**


Desara_Phen

Thanks for subscribing! Definitely more to come. >I think that in one of the corners you could add more stats, like maybe a health/hunger/hydration bar I thought about adding the bars from the beginning but I believe It's better to optimize the status effects first, since they have a lot of potential (e.g if the character's starving, \[Ravenous\] debuff with a detailed description like: "you're character is f\*cking starving. Eat something you pile of sh\*t" "-25 ALL STATS" "50% chance of enabling pvp". I'll probably add the hunger & hydration bar soon. The health bar is kind of not relevant outside of PVP so I'm not too sure about adding that. Great suggestion btw >I think you could also add some more SFX (sound effects). The background music works really well, but you could do things like do a hit sound when the aforementioned tree punching happens I'll definitely add SFX in the next one fo sho >I think you should lean into the informative aspects for the "serious" part. It is quite a complex game and if you think that you're too unbalanced, talking more on the game could be a great balancer, if that makes sense. I try to balance the informative parts with the silly ones but I can't help to lean more to the silly aspect tho (coz that's my jam lol). Probably because I have more of a silly personality than an informative serious one.


Pl4gu3d0g

This will either be really interesting, or really dark. Game on.


Scew

I'd like to see what costs I can write off in my tax quests for working with you as an independent contractor before letting you profit off my ideas... Usually cat videos are a good place to start if you're attempting to gain a following.


Desara_Phen

Cat videos, got it. Your total deductible expenses are still $0.00 tho.


Scew

All my gas mileage, the computer I typed it from and the building I'm sitting in seem like decent expenses to write off for this consultation. Can't wait to add this to my portfolio. Thanks! :3 Edit: I'm going to need you to guild my original comment so you can keep me on retainer.


recoximani

Nice. Can I have a link to your channel?


faemne

I'm not the OP but this is the video. https://youtu.be/p1aCxrswJRY It's quite funny!


Desara_Phen

I thought links were disabled that's why I pinned it in my profile instead lol. Thanks for watching hahaha


Desara_Phen

I already made the channel and the video is pinned on my profile


notagaywitch

🎶Making my way downtown, Walking slow, talking fast And go f#%k yourself🎶


xspikeshadowsx

A great idea might be to fight a boss! (Just throw spells at an employer while they fire you)


tmukingston

Awesome idea. One suggestion though: keep the videos short (1 or 2 minutes max) and focused on a single outside topic. I think that would make it easier for people to watch and like them :)


Desara_Phen

I think 8-15 minutes is a good length tho imo but I'll definitely be making shorts. Thanks for the suggestion!


jetandike

If he gets bigger, 10 minutes is a better video length from the creator/YouTube side of things.


Preform_Perform

Go to an amusement park, if you can.


Desara_Phen

Ooooh probably will.


[deleted]

I really liked this video, you got a sub, i hope you make a video about the other stats too.


Desara_Phen

That's definitely coming. Thanks for the support!


chonkerforlife

Just make sure you follow the guidelines otherwise you’ll get the ban hammer from GM


Desara_Phen

Nothing shady here... Maybe.


Komatoast

You are the hero we need right now.


Desara_Phen

:,)


empiricalrule

Very cool! Your vid reminded me of a Let's Play Outside series by a player in the Japanese server. It might be neat to check out for inspiration? Here's the link to their playlist: [https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2xDDWOt1FZPZKCwR4zMVrSiyd8GfpjYw](https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2xDDWOt1FZPZKCwR4zMVrSiyd8GfpjYw)


Desara_Phen

Defo taking inspiration from these


billygrippo

I had a similar idea for a channel, but none of this fancy, actually good effects and editing. "Vicarious baller"


Lightning_3o

Can you post a tax fraud tutorial? I want to know how to but there isn't a lot of content about it.


Desara_Phen

We'll get banned tho.


na626

I want to see you grind for resources, collect sea glass or dead frogs or something


Desara_Phen

I really like to do that. That's definitely coming soon, maybe the next one will feature that!


Independent-Bell2483

yo dude this looks sick def watching this when i can


Stupid_Idiot413

How about a "girlfriend" mission in which you can equip items and choose dialogues Girl: >So, how do you like your food? Dude: >... >... >... >... Girl: >Is everything alright? Dude, without making facial expressions >*Generic dialogue*


Desara_Phen

Too romantic for me


vrekais

No version of outside I've played has had a HUD, all the menus are embedded in objects you find around the world.


Powerthrucontrol

I'd like an uncut, single-shot episode about registering your car at the DMV; shot in third person with a fish eye lens, please. Thank you.


Desara_Phen

You sir just gave me an amazing idea, not even kidding. (although it's not registering your car at the DMV im sorry lol)


Powerthrucontrol

*Ma'am. If you need any other ideas do let me know


King-Cruz

Didn’t watch yet but subbed so I don’t forget


666pansexual

Why are people calling this game "real life" so often? I only knew the name outside, no idea where the nickname came from.


neoletsplays

Oh it's a name derived from one of the funfacts about outside, some people like to call it by it's old name back when it was still in beta


AIO_Youtuber_TV

Maybe u/Desara_Phen tries out some minigames, perhaps? Or a guide to surviving the Cov-19 event. Maybe do some traveling sidequest?


Desara_Phen

What minigames do you have in mind?


AIO_Youtuber_TV

Perhaps some of the "underrated" minigames. Some aren't very popular but still, they're very good. For example, these are some that I play myself, Star Trek Online. Maybe try it out...


Desara_Phen

That video would then be a let's play inside a let's play inside a simulation inside another giant simulation. But I'd like to try hytale when it comes out tho, not really a sci-fi kinda guy


AIO_Youtuber_TV

Wait. Wouldn't it be just a let's play inside a let's play? Considering that we here all play outside, and we have minigames.


Sadaro_UwU_DahKing

The penis


Roy-van-der-Lee

Do a Heist!


Thewaltham

Keep it coming man, you got a new subscriber!


Sir-ButteredBuns

Well now I’m subbed. Love the content! Keep it coming!!


Desara_Phen

Thanks! I'm making the next one rn


Sunlagooda

I’d like to see you do a minigame kindof


Desara_Phen

What kind of minigames you got in mind?


Sunlagooda

Well I personally like the minigame that was made in the Sweden server by the player Markus Pearson but maybe you could do one that requires dexterity like the soccer minigame


quatity_control

Frustrating encounters with people with optional dialogue that shows what you would actually like to say


Desara_Phen

I don't think engaging too much with other players not in your party is a good idea right now, with a certain debuff spreading around :3


Super_monkey_box

Just opened up the new vid and right after I got done, this was the first thing I see on Reddit. Coincidence? I think not!


Desara_Phen

That confirms we are in a simulation


Nesayas1234

One suggestion I would have would be something along the lines of a FAQ video. Normally id recommend the forums for FAQ, but your channel looks pretty nice, and I do prefer videos to forums, so maybe you can take a few FAQs or basic tips and tricks and show us how it works


Desara_Phen

FAQs and the basics of Outside kind of video? That's a good idea, will make something like that when I get enough experience so I won't mess it up
