Can anyone here offer general advice on doing something like this?
What hurdles are involved with getting a paragon character to work properly with full body or arms for example?
Voice communication coming from a characters world location would also be pretty important. Though the first pass on this I might just test with a Discord chat open in the background.
To me it seems like the hardest part will be getting the characters to animate properly. Can anyone offer advice on where to start to do that?
My long term goal with something like this would be to create something that is a very basic decentralized VRChat style system with a basic server browser that pretty much anyone can use to connect with friends and hang out using various avatars. Possibly down the road have it be an alternative to VRChat.
Its just something I want to tinker around for a bit.
