A good update this week, one of the first that includes alot of new content! But before I say anything, I just want to mention that if anybody has any confusion when it comes to how things in the game, please join our Discord channel and ask for help :)

-Few bugfixes
-New smooth and less sensitive object placement
-You no longer have to hold the trigger to place objects
-New keyboard for typing (end of misc tab)
-Over 20 new high quality furniture models
-New wall art materials and 15 new materials
-Custom 360 image skyboxes!

This was a hard update to make so I hope people enjoy it. The bugfixes include things like the windows not working and fireplace not working. Any bugs you see please report it to the 'Bugs' tab in the community hub. The new furniture includes new sofas, tables, cupboards, beds and chairs. The new wallart includes a few high quality images that you can put on the walls, for the next update I hope to add the ability to import your own wall art! The biggest change this update is definetely the new skybox importing. This now means you can have your house situated
on a mountain, infront of the Eiffel tower, or even in your own street. I recommend using https://streetviewdownload.eu/ to download your 360 images.
Getting them imported is fairly simple, create a folder with your images, then go to the new 'Skyboxes' tab in the linking menu and paste the path to the folder, your new skyboxes will now be in the skyboxes tab in the menu :)

Is the game going to support other HMD like Oculus Rift?
Right now, I dont own an Oculus Rift, but if I get one, I would love to support it.

Is there multiplayer?
Yes, there is definitely going to be multiplayer at some point. We dont know when yet, but its coming.

Will there be more items?
Sure, I will get more and more items in there and try to iclude them as fast as possible. I will support this game with a lot more content.

Will there be more guns?
Yep. Most likely there will be a big gun update, where the main focus is on fireable guns.

Will there be more interactable stuff?
Yes.

Will there be more textures for the walls?
Oh yes, and there also will be an option for custom texture import.

Will more emulators be featured in the game?
I would like to include even more, but they are actually kinda tricky to do, but you always have the option, to start an emulator on one of the many PC monitors, that display your desktop.

Will you release paid DLC after the game gets out of Early Access?
No, everything is going to be free, in Early Access and even after the official release.

Can I import a custom model?
Not yet, but Im working on it at a later date, its definitely one of the things I wanna have in VR Home. I also would like for people to import their Tiltbrush creations and put them on a shelf.

Can I recreate my real room?
Yes, you can even scale all the furniture to match it up with your real room.

• Examples when linking to files

I also got a long list of bugs which I have fixed and a few features that I have added:

• Safe now has collision
• Wall monitor is no longer too big for the screen
• Added a save button at the top right of the menu, for people having trouble with saving
• Arcade machine screen is no longer slanted
• Moved the power button icon to the application menu instead of the touchpad
• Billiards cue can now be picked up with both controllers
• Fixed flames coming out of the fireplace in your hand
• The whiteboard now has a cursor, so you can see where you are drawing
• Fixed bug where gun magazines can not be dropped
• Touchpad controls changed so you don't have to button-mash to rotate/scale
• Gameboy controls changed so they are touchpad sensitive instead of having to click
• Menu rotated slightly so its easier to bring up
