Check below for hardware requirements: the metaverse is friendly to all of you but not so much your older hardware!
Pretty much everything applies to the VR Gallery and the VR metaNest – although the Gallery is not avatar-enabled like the VR metaNest is (except during special events).
VRmetaNest is essentially a Virtual Reality representation of our website with a few extra bits and bobs to deliver a more immersive experience – and to demonstrate where we are going and how we think!
The VR Gallery is a slimmed down version covering the NFT Gallery and the entire set of business docs… everything in the Gallery is also in the VR metaNest.
But if you are having performance issues in the main nest, the VR Gallery might work better for you!
And pretty much anything you need to know you will find below
Not all devices will let you access VRmetaNest so take a look below to determine if you might be able to make things work (if they aren’t)
Like everything, the faster the better .. slower connections may take longer to load
Software and Hardware
General note: slower, older models & devices with less than 8Gb RAM may struggle to load and run VRmetaNest (just like Decentraland .. but at least we run on mobiles unlike them!)
Learn to move around once you enter VRmetaNest
Holding the Shift key will help you cruise a little bit more quickly.
To save sanity and preserve dignity 🙂 Voice and Camera capabilities will be disabled for most users.
And yes, you can walk through a lot of objects .. feel free, no harm no fowl 🙂
Click on things!
Click on stuff.. sometimes nothing happens but you might just be able to
Always worth a try: you can’t break anything in the metaNest
Accessing the VRmetaNest : just click on the Link in the menu above
Once you enter the vrNest you can edit your avatar and set a name as follows:
You will be prompted to enter a name when you enter the space. Type your name, click Connect. Once you enter you can edit your avatar. See the next step below for details.
(note: if you have logged in you will see additional options: some are disabled but others, like chat translation for automated chat to speak with anybody who is also logged in / has set their chat as shown below)
Click on a button that looks like this on the top right hand corner:
This will bring up a box that looks like this where you just click on Custom Avatar.
There are lots of choices here – you can do as you please or just stick with the defaults.. it is your choice. To design just follow the dialogs and have fun with it.
NOTE: our partners at FrameVR are working on this element: it may only work one directionally at times)
Even though the mic and camera are disabled for most birdies – most of the time – vrNest has a crazy cool translation chat ability.
Set it up by clicking that same icon on the top right and then “Chat Settings” as shown below.
Set both the Voice Input Language &Text Chat Translation Language to your local language
and in the Chat Box (see the top left corner of your screen to select it)
And Finally, at the bottom of the chatbox itself (hit the down=arrow to open it) also select translate and ensure the language set matches the 2 above.
And whatever you send will be translated to the language of the other users in the chat.
This is an amazing feature for our international vrNest users and we can’t wait for it to be perfected!
So use it as you please – but don’t complain if it isn’t always working 🙂
We’re not promising to keep this on forever BUT until we turn it off, selecting Fly Mode and adjusting your viewing position lets you fly.
Yep. Fly. It’s a super power (and not only does it get you up into the clouds it even lets you walk through walls!)
If you fly around, other viewers will see you up there. And when you turn it off you will land back where you started.
