P-165: Solar System Viewer Update 2

by on Oct.18, 2015, under Uncategorized

I have made some small additions to the menu system for this project.

I had originally planned to allow the player to just rotate the celestial body currently in view, but I think to truly test the immersive VR capabilities of the Oculus Rift (something this project is designed to do) I really need to add a free look mode, which I have done.

The menu can now me hidden, leaving the screen completely free of all gui elements, and the user can move the camera around the scene with no restriction. I also added a reset button to reset the camera position if the user gets lost.

I am not sure whether I want to add realistic orbital mechanics, or other, more complex elements. It will depend on how much time I have.
