Size of web entities?


#1

Have a question about web entities. It seems as if they stop working properly once they get over a certain size, somewhere around 5 meters. I’m thinking about setting up a much larger web entity, something like a billboard about 20x15 meters.

Does anyone know how I could do that, or if it requires some change in the web entity itself?


#2

have you tried the DPI setting?


#3

Actually, the DPI setting is impossible to change. It used to work, but now it doesn’t anymore.


#4

try the below code. copy and paste the objects uuid, where uuid is below, and then paste the code into the hifi console.

Entities.editEntity(uuid,{dpi:8});

#5

It says “expected : in about console”.


#6

the code should look like the below but with your objects uuid.

Entities.editEntity("{1a9a0c74-2025-49fb-9682-81db17cd3f22}",{dpi:8});

#7

Should it be with or without the hyphens? I tried without hyphens.


#8

No error message when I included the hyphens, but the dpi-setting of the entity does not change.


#9

I’ve tested that code in-world it does change the entity. You can change the 8 to what ever value you want, the default is 30. Lower values will make things appear bigger and higher values will make things appear smaller. I will be in world in Welcome for the next 4 hours feel free to pop in and ill help you out.

Now it works. Thank’s a lot for your patience. And thank’s for finding out about that other problem I didn’t know about (that I was in the wrong domain). Maybe there was a connection between those things, but I can’t figure out what that might have been.
