Playing with scale in VR, this rollercoaster shrinks you down the size of a mouse and zooms you around a living room!

To celebrate the release of Unreal Engine 4 I decided to make a rollercoaster! I’ve been interested in playing with scale in VR (like in my RTS demo), so I thought it’d be cool to see what it feels like to be shrunk down to a tiny size. Turns out it’s pretty awesome!

For those of you that are riftless, here’s a full playthrough video;

Enjoy!

Oh yeah, and I’ve ported the code for my rollercoaster to an Unreal Engine plugin, so you can make your own rollercoaster with doing any coding!

Here’s a tutorial video on how to set it up and make a simple rollercoaster;

That is awesome Teddy! I have PMed you!

This is outstanding! Yet another reason for me want to swipe someone’s Occulus kit for at least a few days. Thank you so much for putting this together Teddy. =)

Also, side note, I have to say everyday feels like Christmas on the WIP and Released Projects forums. So many interesting and unexpected projects. It is great!

Very interesting! Good thing that all the textures and materials in that level are so ridiculously detailed :slight_smile:

:smiley: Looks pretty cool.

That is absolutely awesome, and thank you for the tutorial video :wink:

Can you explain step by step for noob like me how to make this level blueprint that you already had in the beginning?

Very cool :slight_smile:

Haha this is great, I can feel my stomach lurching already. (Not an insult, the Rift makes me very nauseous)

wow… I need an Oculus Rift! :smiley: I will test the Oculus Rift on Gamescom, maybe (I hope) they have your Demo there :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks a lot for this. I always wanted to build a rollercoaster, but had no UDK / UE experience, so a got a nice start :wink:

I’m having some problems with roll rotation of the track. While everything looks visually okay, the camera swings into opposite direction when i use roll. Any idea where to look for error? I’ll go thru your code, maybe i can find something.

Hi there! UE4 ver 4.2 is out, but your plugin is not compatible with that version! Could you please recompile it for 4.2 version?

I have the same problem with the rotation of the track. Did you find a solution for this?

Thanks

any news about this plugin for ue 4.7?

Has anyone tried to export this to Android?

I’m getting the following errors:

Some trick required for exporting with custom plugins to android???

I tried both with an old UE4 version of the plugin and with the new 4.7 plugin and get the same error :frowning:

I want to try creating something for the gearvr!

teddy has a 4.7 export near the end of this thread:
https://forums.oculus.com/viewtopic.php?t=8032

Link for download is no good, I would really like to try this out on my DK2.

I can’t to use RollerCoater plugin under Unreal Engine 4.8. The UE say me that “RollerCoaster failed to load because module ‘RollerCoasterPlugin’ does not appear to be compatible with current version of the engine. The plugin may need to be recompiled”.

@DSMan yes it is outdated for 4.8. try downloading an older build…

as you see in his video he was on 4.3

try this link :slight_smile:

Hola!! someone know if exist some Rollercoster plugin for UE 4.8 ??
Muchas gracias
