The latest beta release of VERT. Basic functionality is complete and demonstrable. This represents the foundation upon which the rest of the game will...
Welcome to the first iteration of VERT beta.
Imagine playing The Sims but through the eyes of your sim and all other sims are controlled by real people. That is the direction of VERT. VERT aims to be a virtual reality game with many activities and games you can play with friends from around the world.
This iteration features full 3D movement, text chat and seats to sit on.
This is the first beta release of the game, more features will be implemented as time goes on. Check back regularly for updates on progress of the game.
Added building functionality to the game. Players can spawn objects including houses and furniture and place them in the scene. There is a new level called “Home” which starts out with a patch of grass, anything that is added to the scene will be saved and loaded next time the scene is opened. All levels are serialised when the player disconnects so any objects added will be there the next time they connect. Bought a 3D monitor and did some experimentation, the effect does not work with some shaders but the Island and Home levels work well. The text is too small to read clearly on the interlaced screen so it needs to be bigger. Have had some trouble connecting to servers and hosting a server. I am not sure where the problem lies but it seems to have something to do with NAT punchthrough, as a stopgap I am going to try connecting without NAT if the first connection attempt fails.
