VR Workshop: Basic Components

Building myself a virtual workshop where I can explore & prototype concepts.


Just had a nasty surprise looking at my poly count. Time for some LOD work.

Daily 20.02.12 /// 327 // VR Workshop / @UnrealEngine #madeinunreal #gamedev #VR #UX

So that’s all the basic VR components done. Now to build in some interactivity and more complex elements.

Daily 20.02.06 /// 323 // VR Workshop / @UnrealEngine #madeinunreal #gamedev #VR #UX


Learning some linear physical constraints to make some pull lever components.

Daily 20.02.05 /// 322 // VR Workshop / @UnrealEngine #madeinunreal #gamedev #VR


On to lever components and learning about physic constraints

Tutorial for physical constraints

Edging forward with the VR component library. Now with a couple of pressable switches.

Nice productive week in my little VR workshop building components. Now with some toggles.

Daily 20.01.31 /// 319 // VR Workshop / @UnrealEngine #madeinunreal #gamedev #VR


Making the switches scalable and reversible 👍

Daily 20.01.30 /// 318 // VR Workshop / @UnrealEngine #madeinunreal #gamedev #VR


Couple of basic switches for the VR component library

Daily 20.01.29 /// 317 // VR Workshop / @UnrealEngine #madeinunreal #gamedev #VR


You know what, this took me so long to figure out I don’t care how fugly it looks! I’ll make it pretty tomorrow.

Daily 20.01.28 /// 316 // VR Workshop / @UnrealEngine #madeinunreal #gamedev #VR


Prototyping soft button animation

Daily 20.01.27 /// 315 // VR Workshop / @UnrealEngine #madeinunreal #gamedev #VR

Exploring more buttons and getting them to react precisely. Looking forward to getting the #Oculus hand tracking #UE4 update to go even further.

Daily 20.01.24 /// 314 // VR Workshop / @UnrealEngine #madeinunreal #gamedev #VR

Today’s goal, getting VR buttons to react and feel just right.

Daily 20.01.23 /// 313 // VR Workshop / @UnrealEngine #madeinunreal #gamedev #vr

Buzzing I got this working. A watch menu appearing when you look at your wrist. Needs some visual TLC but it’s working at least. Great way to hide your menu in VR.

Tutorial used for watch menu

Giving my little virtual workshop a facelift. So many ideas to work on and designing under a starry sky sounds 😚👌

Daily 20.01.21 /// 311 // VR Workshop / @UnrealEngine #madeinunreal #gamedev #vr #ux


Goal is to create my own virtual workshop to build prototypes within. Step 1: load in my Trello site to keep on top of this.

Successful launch onto the Oculus Quest with the fixed controllers.
Helps put widget in 3D actor
Help put the browser into the scene
Helps get the initial setup for bringing Unreal projects over to the Oculus Quest
Helps with the controller issues. Seems to be fixed in 4.24. See end of video.
