Animation enhancement - IK system for VR players

Post by Parias » Tue Jul 10, 2018 4:12 pm

I'm not sure if this would require a ton of extra work or not, but would it be possible to add some IK functionality to the player models for when someone is using VR? I keep waving and signalling to my non-VR shipmates and keep forgetting that they can't actually see what I'm doing -- they just see my character spinning around weirdly, heh.

We did a few experiments with it when we were first adding VR to the project. It's a surprisingly tricky thing to get right! I can't guarantee we'll end up having it though, but there's a chance we may try again in the future!

That'd be awesome if you're able to fit it in, but I can certainly appreciate it might have its share of difficulties. Thanks for the response!
