Looking forward to new feature of own Home -> complete bland home!

I like the idea that we can now create our own geometry.  I like Dash but I don't like the distraction of Home playing in the background. I'm looking forward to having a completely blank Home! Will that be even possible?

What do you think?

Ya, I'd also like a blank home option that still lets you go to the store.  I dislike the lag between apps when you wait for the home background to load up.  This may further improve your performance compared to the current basic home a tiny bit as well.

I tried that but it had some bugs, I also prefer a native polished solution.

Ya and that hack is not supported.  Plus you lose access to the store.  Like you I would prefer Oculus to provide a proper way to do this.

I guess you could import a simple white cube model as your home?

That's a good idea mate.  Maybe someone can make one for this +60 yo guy and let me know how to import it.  Thanks.

I could probably throw something together, need to investigate the workflow first. Ill keep you posted.

Unzip this into the C:\Users\kojack\Documents\Oculus Home\_Import\_CustomHomes directory (replacing the kojack bit of course).
(that path may not exist if you haven't tried making a custom home yet. Making it yourself should be fine)

That will give you a 40m x 40m x 40m white cube as the home.

You'll need to go into the home menu (menu button), select Places, Templates, pick "bigcube" then click the Create World button.

Blender 2.80 has GLTF export built in, that can export to the GLB file that oculus wants.
