Right now, the address bars offers up to three suggestions.
Currently, the suggestion algorithm isn’t very sophisticated. Right now, it just picks the ones with most current users of those that meet all the following criteria:
- Have a place name. (Not a temporary name.)
- Have at least one user already present. (Of course, it must be running to have someone present.)
- Be listed as having operating hours for the current time. (The default operating hours are all day except for a minute at midnight.)
- Not have entrance restrictions.
- Be running the same protocol signature that the client is using.
- Not have more than 20 users already present.
- A picture must have been uploaded for one of the place names of this domain. (You do this from the “edit” option of your place names.)
In addition, you can type in the address bar like always. As you do so, the suggestions are all filtered by what you type.
- For this purpose, we don’t require a picture, but we still currently require a person to already be there.
- For each candidate, the name (and all place names), description, and all tags are examined to see if the words you are typing all appear someplace. (Case insensitive, but no “stemming”, and no unicode canonicalization.) Thus typing “playa” will match “hq”, because “playa” is a place name in that domain. The multiple place names are alphabetically sorted and the first one is the one displayed.
Alas, there are no ‘as-you-type” suggestions in Vive, given the way that keyboard currently works.
REMEMBER: If there are multiple domains on the same local network, you must go into advanced settings and change the Local UDP Port to 0. If multiple machines on the same network use the same port, people won’t be able to connect to you!
