Click to reveal patch notes

General Updates

REFLECTIONS ADDED! Must be enabled in settings 'Graphics/VR' as this is considered resource-intensive. The reflectivity of objects is controlled by the existing Roughness maps; some objects may need adjustment if using maps that are too shiny.

FLYING MODE ADDED! Must be enabled by the world owner. Controls: Z to toggle, WASD or arrows for directional movement, C for down, E for up. Flight speed is controlled by avatars' run speed, so scripts can adjust.

Shader Updates

  • Additional Side-by-Side UV split option added to this shader to use the same stream for separate color and displacement information; this must be set up in your video's stream and is a 50/50 side by side split.

Settings Updates

  • Reflections toggle added to Graphics/VR options menu.

  • Flymode toggle added to edit mode scene settings to allow control over flight per world. Defaults to off.
