Finally a free locomotion is ready. It took a lot of testing and many incremental updates to do it right, but it finally seems to be working right.
There are now two free locomotion control options in settings room besides teleport. Touchpad control and arm swinger. With touchpad control you use your touchpad on Vive or joystick on Oculus to move around, while in arm swinger mode you press the touchpad to activate walking and you walk by swinging your arms along the body like walking.
Beware of motion sickness though. If you are prone to motion sickness in VR games, I highly recommend you turning the vignette on to block your peripheral vision, keep the movement speed low or to stick with teleport control mode.
That being said, I would like to thank our dedicated tester Bunzo, who has a stomach like a sailor and who relentlessly tested each beta update. Thank you.
List of changes in this update:
- added Touchpad free loco control option
- added Arm Swinger free loco control option
- optional vignette added to smooth rotation
- speed options for smooth rotate
- cautious but free movement during combat (when using free loco)
