Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

I guess i will bump up. Whatever collision presets i choose for both props and vr hands they still go through them.I saw alot of threads around and seems this is major problem for now.

Are you aware of the fact that affecting the position of a user's camera at all can cause serious motion sickness?

I would recommend looking into how Call of the Starseed: The Gallery keeps players inside the map: they blur the user's vision instead which does not induce nausea.

I would assume that what you want to do is difficult to do by design because of the high risk of player nausea.

Edit: If you just want to block the hands from going through objects you will need to physically simulate them, which means making sure they have a physics asset, and then you'll need to drive them to the position and orientation you'd like them to be in using a physics constraint.
