AltspaceVR releases new menu and walking options

Today's a big day for us. We been overdosing on caffeine and those peanut-butter-filled pretzel things (thanks Phil for bringing in the family-sized container) in order to launch our new menu. So what's the big deal about a new menu? Well, we've had reports for the last while that some users haven't been able to use AltspaceVR because their menus don't load. We tracked down the culprit to a plugin that our old menus relied on. We rebuilt our menus from scratch without the plugin in order to guarantee more users can get into AltspaceVR.

This new menu will fix a lot of issues. We also used the opportunity to make the experience of using AltspaceVR better. You should now have an easier time finding events, experiences, choosing your avatar, finding friends, and creating events. We also introduced some new features that we will be testing and iterating on the next few days based on your feedback. But enough chit chat...here are the biggest changes:

New party portals for everything - Now you can travel with friends to any experiences available in the menu. Go to any experience (event, activity or worlds) and click "info" and choose to make a party portal. You will not be able to create a party portal from the radial hub menu. Instead go to "activities" create an activity and then click "info" to make it a party portal.

New Menu - Now you can more easily navigate to the best experiences in AltspaceVR.
No more scrolling - We removed scrolling and replaced it with pagination. No more endless scrolling to find where you want to be.

New web option - We removed the web browser in the menu due to some debilitating bugs. Now users can access the web anytime by clicking the "Browser" icon in the radial hub menu. You can access anything from the web from there. If you want to share your screen with others, approved roles (like event hosts) can click the "Broadcast" icon under the web view.

New walking model - Users can now walk with blinders on – a technique used across other VR games to increase comfort. You can change the size of the blinders in settings.

New avatar customizer for everyone - We're bringing our advanced avatars to everyone. Now you can access all of our avatars and change your hair color from the "Me" tab.

Improved "Settings" Tab - Switch accounts easily from settings, additional customization options, sign up for our early access program

Improved "Events" tab - Create events inside VR and new list for all user events

Reviews

“Yesterday night I went to a party at a VR apartment in the sky where we played music from YouTube, sang karaoke, someone played a virtual piano, and we were all robots. The future is strange and amazing!”
Rickyjj, Oculus Subreddit

“All of this works so well that I honestly had no way of telling who was in the office next to me and who was in another city altogether. Above all else, it pervades the sense of presence that all virtual reality experiences so desperately try to capture.”
David Jagneaux, Motherboard

“A clever combination of head-tracking and spatial audio invited me to look directly at other players when they spoke. It felt comfortable. Natural. Easy. Before long, I started to forget about the odd combination of robots and taverns and started to just enjoy hanging out with other people in VR.”
Sean Buckley, Engadget
