Oculus Home Ideas

There didn't seem to be a thread related to suggestions for the oculus home, It's a great main hub for Oculus, and I've been excited to see the recent additions to it, such as the avatar system. Some of the ideas I've had for future additions include implementing season/daylight cycles into the backgrounds that mimic the players current location's timezone, the ability to edit the size and primary color of objects, and implementing various animals that could wander around your home. Please share thoughts and suggestions for oculus home here!

    All of these suggestions are things I'd love to see in the Home.

    YES! I love all of the above, I would love to change the size of imported models too, this was advertised in the Blog post from Oculus but never really implemented.

    I notice with the latest release, when you select an object (Especially a user created one), there is initially a bounding box around the object with what look to be "grab point", that I assumed would be for scaling, but sadly they do nothing at this time.. :-(

    Maybe it is a work in progres and the next release will have it implemented?

    I hope so LZ, I've been woking with custom objects for a month or so now, and would really like this dynamic scale feature. 

    it's a pain in the ass to have to keep scaling the object, exporting (to a new name, as reusing names is not very reliable), re-importing, and seeing it is not quite right and have to go back through the cycle again!

    since we're here, has anyone played with animated objects yet?

    No not at all yet.  I'm not sure what animation a can employ yet.
    I've been too busy leaning static modeling techniques :-)

    Now that animation loops are available, you can already make more "living" objects ^^. You can definitely make wandering animals, like the birds. Haven't tried that myself though xD!
    Scaling is definitely a must-have, I can't believe they still didn't add such a basic feature...
    As for the seasons, it could be great, but I don't see it as really necessary ^^. More like a performance issue xD.

    What would be necessary though, would be the ability to change the architecture of the house. Fair enough, custom objects allow us to do more customized homes. But it's still not enough for me. The pillars are really annoying me, and I would love to get a second floor, and more windows, and more space, and a higher ceiling...
    Hyped for the Quest 2!


    My hopes for VR next gen:
    - Full Body Tracking. Come on, Oculus!
    - Eye tracking with foveated rendering. Must reduce the power needs!
    - More big-scale games. I need a true VRMMORPG!
    - Bigger community.

    I would LOVE to have a little pasture out in the mountains....and the ability to create my OWN little log cabin piece by piece.

    However I HIGHLY doubt that Oculus would be that creative and let us do that.

    I would be happy if I could just for a walk in the valley and put my animals there and not on my front porch :)

    I'd love it if they could fix the compatibility issues between SteamVR and Oculus Home (yes, I know, not a feature, but still). A lot of the time whenever I launch a game in SteamVR, Oculus Home will still be running in the headset, with slowed performance as my PC then has to supply power for 2 games at once. In terms of features, though, I'd love it if they added full-body avatars, and also added secondary motion-tracking system similar to that of the Kinect using a webcam (or a modified Kinect), so that we can have accurate leg and elbow positioning. I'd also want them to add support for 3rd party controllers such as the Valve Knuckles when they come out.

    Here is what i think about oculus home:

    i use it mostly, to have a background when i want to watch a movie on virtual desktop, BUT,

    EVERYTHING, everything is made to make me mad when i try to watch a movie with it, the home loads, and then i lose internet for some seconds and it leave the home, then it starts back and im stuck in a virtual chair, i cant see the movie, and it happens again and again without interuptions so i miss 20 minutes of the movie,  then i need to pin the movie in order for it to stay when i leave the menu, then i grab the pistol cause i want to shoot some targets while watching, and the pistol fall from my hand without reason, randomly, i keep holding the hold button but the pistol randomly falls after some seconds, then a pop up tells me how to oppen the home menu, and i dont care i know the fuck how to oppen the home menu, then i try to sit on a virtual chair, to match my real chair, but when i sit im lower than the chair and im inside it, instead of upside it.


    Everything could be great, its just some little bad designed things that would just be top if it was corrected, just, if you are the developper/designer, try to go on your home in a new room you never did setup guardian before, and start the struggle to watch an online movie on virtual desktop, and you ll see everything that makes people mad, while the big screen looks so promising.

    Also, one thing that could be great, even if black and white like in guardian setup, would be to have the virtual desktop available in this black and white vision of real world, to see a keyboard, a bag of chips, peanuts, or anything.
