    FYI VR is next month

    The big cotent update was probobly for VR integration.

    https://www.vinnova.se/p/utveckling-...n-mobil-enhet/

    MA got a grant from the government and promised to release VR content into Entropia Universe at the end of the timeline. That timeline ends in April. VR next month!


    At the end of the project, we will have a functional integration of Social-VR in Entropia Universe Platform, available for desktop and mobile applications. This means that in the game offer we can create significantly more vibrant and captivating experiences.

    Purpose and goal

    "MindArk, pioneers in the field of Virtual Worlds now intend to develop their technical platform to support applications for social VR. The primary purpose is to integrate this support into the existing platform for existing customers. The secondary purpose is to broaden the technology to work with new industries where social VR is demanded, such as: meetings, lectures, conferences, education, concerts and experiences. The goal is to integrate support into Entropia Universe Platform for Social VR, based on a commercial thin mobile client.
    Expected results and effects

    At the end of the project, we will have a functional integration of Social-VR in Entropia Universe Platform, available for desktop and mobile applications. This means that in the game offer we can create significantly more vibrant and captivating experiences. For the B2B offer, it means that we have a fully developed virtual world available mobile and stationary, as demanded by companies for creating services in areas such as: meetings, lectures, conferences, education, concerts and experiences.
    Planned approach and implementation

    The project will start in May 2017 and end in April 2018. The project will be based primarily in Gothenburg at MindArk's office. We will also engage a subcontractor as we have long experience working in the field of mobile gaming development. We will largely build on the existing Entropia Universe Platform architecture. This means that we will build an integration with this on the server side, as well as create a new client that will be mobile."


    Thanks for showing us

Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected."

    As much as I'd like to see VR in EU, I cant see this happening in the next few weeks, let alone years.

    Think that's still a long way off.

    Interesting.

    Doing a bit of looking around I see MA did release this in October:

    GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN – Oct. 9, 2017 - Conference calls with colleagues from around the world are about to get a whole lot more exciting thanks to the latest technology from Swedish videogame developer MindArk. Businesses will soon be able to conduct virtual “avatar meetings,” allowing users to meet “face-to-face” in an interactive digital world.

    Coming in December 2017 to PC and Mac via HTC Vive and Oculus Rift headsets, and to mobile via Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream, this virtual reality platform uses 3D positional voice technology, lip-syncing and fully-tracked head and hand movements to aid avatar expression. A trial version is available now for interested customers.

    “MindArk has more than a decade of experience developing and refining virtual worlds and bringing people together from around the globe, and we’re using our deep knowledge of common digital spaces to take the first step toward the future of global corporate communication,” said Klas Moreau, CEO, MindArk. “Our technology is now becoming mature enough to allow more users to step into these virtual spaces together, with a number of intriguing applications now possible by using our platform.”

    With MindArk’s new virtual reality meeting space, companies can “meet” with colleagues around the globe for everyday business issues, or use modeling and interactive slides for a new level of immersive presentation to users around the world. Participants will be able to do much more than just virtually meet. From pitching and touring digitally-rendered buildings to conducting international symposiums with attendees from all over the world seemingly gathered in one place, MindArk’s new platform offers vast potential for making meetings more productive and engaging.

    Customizable options for MindArk’s virtual reality meeting space include:
    • Free ‘template’ rooms, with premium plans allowing customization of 3D models and assets as needed;
    • Persistent room states, allowing users to return to a room just as they left it to continue
      their meeting;
    • Google Drive integration enabling in-world document access.

    Forgot a couple of things

    Next day patch
    Next year patch to fix what the first patch missed.
    Lastly: Player adaption to the things that just don't seem to get fixed.......ever.

    Believe me when I say I wish we never had posts like this one and the one I quoted. I would much, MUCH rather have a consistence stream of praise of the innovation and great game play we all enjoy.
