    Let me explain something to you. Whenever you come in here and interrupt me you're breaking my concentration. You're distracting me. And it will then take me time to get back to where I was. Understand?
  • Looks cool.. I actually had this idea a week or two ago and had started looking for the textures and tricycle model.

    It would be really great if you could ride the tricycle around the entire hotel.

    I was also thinking the elevator scene would be a great small VR project. (just saw that you were planning this in the coming soon) nice!

    Really good idea ! Your demo is short but nicely done ... can't wait to experience the rest of the hotel :twisted:
    I personnaly think that recreating famous movies or tv series scenes is a great way to promote and experience VR.
    Keep up the great work !

    Really like it! Looking forward to seeing the lobby (hehe, with Jack typing!).
    Is the labyrinth in your plans, too? That would be tremendious, when I get my "virtualizer" this spring.
  • Wow, that's great work, can't wait for the rest to see..
  • moltonmolton Posts: 388
    Great idea. I was toying around with recreating this movie purely for demo purposes, I even managed to figure out how to do a crossfade from 2 scenes, both with head tracking, but that was just for demo purposes and would have been a really dumb idea to actually do. This looks awesome though, first person, in the scene. Maybe Willie Wonka boat ride next? :)

    love the original and the remake....I need the maze (actually the whole overlook - titanic detail-wise inspired) Adam savage build quality. downloading now and look forward to more (there is a market for this type of thing I'm sure - I love replica builds and wish there was a stream line way to override copyright issues (so everyone gets paid) to make this kind of thing viable for the indie and the public(enjoyment wise)).

    feedback after testing...

    one thing i have experienced that may be worth exploring, is in locomotion make the pivot point the player root (even if in a vehicle). also cutting locomotion while yawing helps a great deal - for game pad get it yawing at the same rate as mouse to achieve the same thing - not telling you what to do but i found it make motion more comfortable in a vehicle and may be worth exploring.

    I also didn't feel small, I felt like an 18year old in a scaled up environment - but i can't quite guarantee that's not what it felt like when i was young (memory is little shifty on that) but doesn't feel quite right - maybe build at scale and mod eye seperation.

    maybe more atmosphere needs to be established. still cool just some constructive critique (others may disagree).
