[GAME] Industrial VR

Game: Industrial VR

Genre: Simulation

Engine: Unreal Engine 4

Platform: PC

 

Dear friends!

We passed Steam Greenlight campaign and are excited to show our small project we are working on. It's something new in the world of VR exploration and educational experiences.

Industrial VR is a game designed to show and explain workflow and general concepts of complex industrial sites. How does a nuclear power plant work? What happens inside an oil rig? How does a hydropower dam function? 



The Industrial VR series is out to help the player find an answer to these questions, along with many others.

Hoover Dam will be the first object reviewed by the game.


You will be able to navigate through the scene and look into detailed areas of specific machinery, play and pause technical cycles to understand underlying pricinples better.

Since its launch, the game offers two modes: a story mode and a free mode.
The story mode familiarizes the player with general principles of the dam operation.
The free mode features a more detailed view, allowing the player to explore various internal parts and learn more details related to engineering. This mode allows absolute freedom of exploration of objects found at the dam site.




We look forward to your comments and suggestions. Thank you!

The game information, along with the screenshots and more info, could be found on our social media pages.

    This is one of those really cool apps that showcases how awesome VR can be.  I'll check this one out for sure.

    Was just wondering, have you got a set plan for what projects you will be looking to implement, it's just because I think if you did some of the space stuff like ISS (International Space Station) that would be cool to view as well. But either way I still think your goal for this software/experience will be amazing.

    This is awesome! I am super excited to hear more about what you are doing.

    I worked on a VR safety training using a industrial computational fluid dynamics simulator for fires, explosions, and gas leaks used by oil companies for risk analysis at offshore and onshore oil extraction and processing plants.

    Do you have interactive dynamics and/or avatars in your application yet?

    Are you interested in collaborating with others? Are you based in a EU country? I am considering a proposal with Horizon2020 in VR safety training.

    For Horizon2020 it is necessary to have other European countries on the proposal. Feel free to send me a private message on these forums if you prefer.

    @SkScotchegg We plan to launch different cycles of the game, such as: Aeronautics, Military, Transportation, Science, Architecture. Our goal to collect as many wishes as possible from gamers. Write what you would be also interested to see.

    We have updated our concept menu and now it's left to implement it!

    I would like to see the LHC and the CMS and Atlas detector. I can get models.

    Friends, how much detail would you like to see the proposed scenes?

    Initially, we started to do a super detailed script, which turned out to be a half hour lecture.
    Then we decided to make it easier and in separate interactive scenarios take out the details.

    @helloworld

    I think detail is great, but I'd rather have it broken up. One big long chunk of detail may be hard to follow and remember anything from. But if you break it up into scenarios and cover different aspects in blocks of information throughout the experience that would work great.

    My step-father was actually one of the PM's for the expansion project they did a few years back, had to live down there for a couple years. That thing is nuts!

    This project looks so awesome, I can't wait to try it!

    we also thought about this, that's why we moved detailed information to free mode. 
    There you can choose the object and learn it in the additional schematic mode. The scenarios will be available when you choose a relevant button (details, construction, how it works etc.) :smile:

    Now parking on the Hoover Dam is no longer so empty, the tourists on small cars began to fill it
