Take That (In-Game) Snap Daily Photo is an off-shoot of the upcoming Take That (In-Game) Snap article series, which looks at, celebrates and critiques how video game developers have implemented professional photography-like systems into their games, how the systems handle, just how accessible they are and, where applicable, how a modding community might be making these tools even better. With this Daily Photo spin-off series, I will be sharing individual photos from the games either covered or soon-to-be-covered in the series.
As development has continued on Cloud Imperium Games’ ambitious space-sim video game project Star Citizen, there has been growing number of items for players to inspect, carry around, sell and interact with each Alpha build. More-so, the object’s placement to a considerable degree is retained should it be within an area associated with your character – such as a private quarters or ship. For those staying at Area 18 on the planet ArcCorp, each living quarters comes bundled with an adorable teddy bear. A friend of mine carried theirs – affectionately named Commander Flufflebutt – with them on all their expeditions. But this teddy bear needed protection…. as if they were lost or within a destroyed ship…. my friend would have to wait until a server wipe to get a second Commander Flufflebutt.
It was a bit of silly fun until a landing of the RSI Constellation Aquila failed (pictured below), and the pair of us needed to escape not only ourselves…. but with the adorable Commander safely in our arms.
