This build has not been seen in a public branch.

Dear Creators, Introducing... the (Beta) Mirror prop!

  • The dorm room mirror you know and love has been repackaged as the Mirror prop with a minimal, recolorable frame and configurable physics modes.
  • All mirrors (the Mirror prop, the dorm room & rec center mirrors, etc.) are now fully supported on Oculus Quest. No more solid color background!

Please note that to make the Mirror prop possible, we've had to put some protections in place:

  • Why? Mirrors are quite costly in terms of performance. There's no way around this.
  • While the mirror is in beta, its ink cost is slightly over 50%. We will reassess ink cost when it comes out of beta.
  • There can only be 1 mirror per room. E.g. if you can't spawn a Mirror in your dorm since there's already a mirror there!
  • Reminder that to use a beta prop, you must enable beta content in your room settings.

General Improvements

  • Fix Anonymous cheers showing the sender
  • Add an auto message to the trolling report category for "Art griefing"
  • Add a profile button to portfolio page

Beta Content Changes

  • The multiple In and Out chips inside of other chips have been changed into single In and Out busses.
  • Recently used chips will now sort closer to the top of palette search.
  • Most events in objects now run for everyone. Filter chips have been added after the events to try to pick a best player to run for.
  • Type name billboarding has been improved on both VR and screens. The billboards are a more suitable size for screens. The billboards no longer rotate with your head or move around as much while moving your head in VR.

  • Control Panels can now be deleted if their objects are also being deleted.
  • Dice Get Result now returns a bool.
  • Piston V2 and Rotator V2 now have tags.
  • Chip previews now always have the correct name
  • Some edge cases encountered when undoing deletion or addition of chips have been fixed
  • Chips no longer accidentally end up inside/outside of other chips during undo
  • Undoing deletion/addition of objects with control panels is more stable
  • Event definitions no longer disappear sometimes when inside of circuit boards or control panels
