    Hi,

    could you please add something for VR?
    As we have the Vive Pro now SotA would be a perfect vr-meeting-ground.
    I hooked into sota with vorpX for some tests. No Problems.
    Everything was perfectly readable and intractable.
    All we need now is a build-in option to get rid of the borders.
    (i do not use the vive only to simulate a big screen - i use the vive to get rid of it)

    VR definitely arrived where it needs to be.
    No more ”not quiet there” or ”next gen”.
    VR is perfectly usable.

    I would be for this as well. It would not take much to have first person render in arms and for this to output to vr headset. It may not be the smoothest framerate but adding unity support would be worth it. Look at steam VR head set numbers they are climbing and the next wave of headsets are just coming out with higher specs :)

    The UI needs work to be usable in vr. I tried it already (yes you can play in VR) , and the text gives headaches.

    I can play other vr games for hours with no problems so it's not on my end.

    But VR would work fabulous with Shroud if they get the "pick things up and move / throw them around" working with hand controllers. People would just sit around having tea parties and playing chess all day. Fantastic

    I don't remember, sorry, it's been quite a few months. It was worth the experiment but painful enough that there was no way I would do it regularly.

    I think there was a video about how to do it, and I tried to find it again but can't. From what I've got installed it would have to be through an Nvidia app, if that exists, or Steam VR or Steam Bigscreen.

    Sorry I don't remember better, blast damage is a bear on the brain.

    As I was sitting in VR Poker tonight, the discussion was about how much VR needs more games, and also how much everyone enjoys just sitting around a table playing poker, with the toys, and chatting.

    Sounds perfect for sitting around in our houses in Shroud.
