It's been a little over a year since our last update, and we've been spending that time retooling our visualization engine to give you a better VR experience, and more accurate molecular content.
We also added support for more data types, including MRI scans, and financial data sets from quandl.com. This will mean a lot more to you when we release our creator tools, but it's very exciting to be able to integrate so many different data types. We will update the non-VR versions within the next week or two.
Last, I just want to say: thank you so much for your support! We're a very small team making something with a huge scope, and the more people who download COSM, the more we can focus on development of this important project.
Hi everyone, we wanted to explain our delay in adding more content. We updated to Unity 5.4 to take advantage of VR optimizations and features, but unfortunately the newest Steamworks API update that went along with that has introduced some bugs with the field of view zooming controls. We are actively trying to get a fix pushed through for that, or find a workaround. New content is still coming, and we've been pushing forward with other areas of improvement for COSM as well. As soon as we have a build that is ready for you we will make another announcement! Thank you so much for your support and patience.
Thanks again to everybody from the community for checking out COSM - Worlds Within Worlds. In fact, I can't thank you enough, but let's move on to the patch notes!
This patch applies only to the VR version. Standalone builds were not affected, but will also be receiving regular updates as needed.
Improvements to Zooming In
Jitter Bug Squashed!
Graphical Performance Optimizations
Other Minor Bug Fixes and Improvements
We continue to encourage you all to share your feedback to continue making the COSM Worlds experience the best it can be, we are a very small team and we wouldn't be able to do it without you. So once again, thank you all so much for your support.
We're so excited to launch COSM Worlds Within Worlds Early Access for you to see the beginning of an expansive science visualization system that will include more beautiful content, more supported platforms, and more features in the future!
COSM currently supports the following platforms:
VR: HTC Vive
