What it does
VR World with creatures you can indirectly effect.
Walk around the world, add rain or pick up inhabitants.
The World can change based on the mood of the planet.
How we built it
This experience was built for the Vive using Unity assets and other free online resources. We started with NewtonVR.

Challenges we ran into
We had some internet connectivity issues and found its hard to collaborate when the machine that runs the VR game, can't connect to the asset store, or other members of the team. This is why everyone should carry a flash drive in your computer bag!
Once our interactions were implemented, we tried to find a way to give players a goal so it felt more like a game, and less like a simulation.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Built the AI for the creatures to walk around the world.
Created dynamic texture colors for the planet.
What we learned
How to implement wander AI on a sphere.
How to use audio mixers.
What's next for Asteroid B 385
