Latest update

Hello everyone, we pushed an update.

The changelist for this release (1.2) is mostly internal: new exe, repacking of existing assets, but your experience should remain the same (we did fix one annoying bug on some systems where a SteamVR update had inverted the Y-axis in the menu).

This update is the first step to our upcoming content addition. Next we will release a new activity, similar to the Solar System activity, but this one will be at the scale of the Milky Way (fasten your seat belt).

As always, if you experience problems please report on the community hub for our help.

All the best from the Overview team :)

[Update] Improved UX and locomotion

Happy New Year to all space lovers our there,

We pushed an update for Rift, Vive and WMR headsets just before Christmas. You should now see a "Home Edition" tagline under the Overview logo in the menu.

WHAT'S NEW
Locomotion has been greatly improved in the Activity "Explore the Solar System." Instead of selecting a planet then pressing a button to Zoom In on it, you now just approach it at the Interplanetary Scale and it will automatically Zoom In past a certain proximity and bring you to the Planetary level. You can then roam freely around the planet and Increase/Decrease TimeScale as usual.

Thank you for relaying any issue you may encounter through this Forum or at support@overviewexperience.com. We have more updates planned in 2019 and we can't wait to share them with you!
