Our current work relies on VRChat, a free Unity 3D multiuser platform.
You'll need Steam, SteamVR, and VRChat. Steam and VRChat also ask you to create accounts.
... Its easiest just to use a Steam Account alone (a VRChat Account is optional)
You do not need an Oculus Rift or Vive HMD.
You can use a Quest, if cabled as a Rift ro a PC.
A good PC will likely be just fine.
There is no Mac software.
Note the UPDATES
Steam, SteamVR, Oculus and VRChat Update REGULARLY!
If coming to an event, please check ahead / give time to install any updates!)
... If you are in workshop or internship, please use the Slack Channel
VRChat uses WASD to move and the mouse to look / ESC key opens the menu options.
There is no Text Chat, it's Voice Only - a Mic is Required
If you are on desktop PC, headphones or earbuds & a quiet space are strongly recommended
The Red Mic icon will change its tone when you speak.
... You can also stand infront of the mirror in your Home space - and talk - your lips should move :)
For more tips - go here VRChat Controls
The Web Links we use will not work unless you have explored other VRChat worlds!
When you close down VRChat, a pop window should appear and announce that Web Links will now work.
Lasty, please don't plan on installing VRChat 30 minutes or less ahead of an initial meet up.
The classroom is currently a "Community Lab" a sort of beta project space
To find the Isovista Classroom using search in VRChat - you must "check" the Community Lab box in Settings
Also its a good idea to "Friend" SteveG - in Social and you can teleport to him - just email him first
