Link Object to VR Position

Post by Skopp » Thu Nov 19, 2020 2:58 pm

Is it possible to link an object to the viewers current position? I would like the VR user to experience the prospective of the bucket of an aerial lift. If the user moves position using the typical navigation, the basket would follow them giving the illusion they were inside the basket.

Any help or alterative suggestions would be much appreciated!!

Thanks,
Steve

If you place the user inside the bucket and move it, the user should move with it, bucket can have a predefined motion or you can use grabble sequence.

We are also working on adjacent objects which is very similar to what you are asking for.
Objects following the user, they should be available in the next updates.

Thanks, this worked good for me. I was able to simulate vertical and horizontal movement. I did run into an issues with getting booted or thrown from the bucket upon triggering the movement. Could this be because the VR position is half inside an object? it does not happen on a flat plane like the elevator tutorial. I added a Bounding Box to the base of the bucket and that helped.

Is there still a goal to add adjacent objects? Would this allow items such as hardhats or fall protection harnesses to follow the user around as if they were wearing it?
