Off Grid is being demo'd at Milliways during Chaos Communication Camp 2019 and so we decided to do something special with it, by making a mod of camp, during camp, streaming the process, and adding things to the mod as camp itself is being built!

The streams themselves will take place on (and other reputable platforms) for the first 3 days of camp, and will feature some friends of Milliways who cannot make it to camp such as Lauri Love, pathfinder, March, and possibly a couple of others ;)

The idea is for it to be a colloaborative project on Github, where anyone can make a pull request and add something to camp, whether that be themselves as a character, some props and environment models to make it all look more life like, a hackable device or project that someone has brought to camp IRL. Not only that, we intend this to be a living and ongoing project, that we add to at every camp and every congress, making it bigger, more complex and more in depth over time as a representation of everything Milliways and CCC.

Come and join in on the stream, or better yet come to Milliways for a whisky, to play the game, and to watch the stream in good company!

We have a couple of members of our Discord community taking the lead, the core Off Grid team will be around to lend support. You can follow progress in the #modding channel on the Discord.

You can watch the streams here on Twitch.

The times are listed on the CCC Self Organised Session page

How do I take part?

Well are you at CCCamp or at home?

At CCCamp: head to Milliways, check out the game and at the right times (1800h) on day 0,1,2,3 catch the stream on a screen there.

At home: Watch the Stream here on Twitch

At home after CCCamp? well the Git repo will be an ongoing thing even long after CCCapm19 has ended, make a pull request here and contribute to it, or make your own mod from it!

The Plan

A life like (if slightly stylised and low poly) version of the camp setup based on the plans made ahead of time and some of the organic chaos that always occurs during buildup.

The Iconic Milliways Dome

This is the central hub of every Milliways village

The Bar

There is always a free flowing

The Kitchen

Milliways puts on a full size proffessional catering kitchen to feed all the hungry hackers. This often includes a dedicated bakery

The Rummery

An important section of camp and where all the lizards hangout.

The OFF GRID annex

A small addition to camp that is demoing the game that you are playing ... meta.

What is in the mod?

Well we have some ideas, but surely you do too?
