This is really exciting, But will the samples always be in the old ‘floating hands’ method? I won’t even buy a VR game with floating hands, SO THAT MAKES THIS BOTH SO EXCITING AND SO EXASPERATING,. ,.I have this hope, because I have heard mentions of this being (or becoming?) Full Body IK compatible and that will be reflected in the samples eventually (presumably?) This ‘hope’ has kept me has made me come back over and over, hundreds of times, for years, always waiting and hoping for that one thing,./ Then, every time opening the file and getting so depressed. I am a cancer survivor, I am in recovery, I am already abut as depressed as a human can be and still live (high functioning depression) I have spent actual weeks in bed after opening a VR Expansion Sample Project and seeing Floating Hands again,.
I hope someday they help us Artists to enter the Future of VR with an IK Body in the sample project. I know it is possible, I have done it myself, in limitted fashion from a UE4 Book I bought,. but I am an Artist and am a 'reverse engineer' learner. (I am OFTEN insulted and denigrated for being so, but it is it is a perfectly valid way to learn, it is just not the usual way)
With tools like this, I can use or work with anything I can SEE and understand. Learning by rote from a list of rules and such?? ,. never gets me EVEN 1% OF THE WAY there. Not like the instant understanding that can come the way I have learned, to learn,…
I think i’ve requested this about once a year for as far back as it was mentioned, but PLEASE PLEASE IF IT IS REALLY POSSIBLE, PUT AN IK BODY IN THE SAMPLE PROJECT (OR A SAMPLE PROJECT!), my game has been nearly complete for nearly a year while I wait for some IK body solution. I have zero budget and am disabled and stuck in lockdown I have no option to simply ‘buy’ BIK (which was sponsored by EPIC and should be free…).
IF ANYONE CAN HELP, i WILL GIVE CREDIT IN MY GAME. I have found an ‘ok’ solution in the VR Cookbook book,. but … I would just rather not release than release with just an ‘ok’ locomotion scheme you know?
I’m not just some young trainee, I HAVE THOUSANDS OF SUBSCRIBERS, ( youtube.com/NextWorldVR ) I have credits on my IMDB page, from 20 years working in Hollywood on Film TV and Games. I have worked at Warner Digital, Praxis Filmworks, ACTIVISION, I have even, over the last year, secured promises from most of my fellow VR Youtubers, to play and review my game. Please help if you can, I so want to move onto my next 2 titles,.
