All of these actions happen at very different speeds and not all of these actions are even available, natively, in HMD.
Flying with a friend is impossible in either HMD or Desktop. The fly speed is so fast, and since flying requires navigating your height as well as your forward/back motion, and it all happens so fast, it’s very difficult and clunky to tour a domain with a friend if both of you want to fly. Would be great to have something like 2-3 speed controls for flying, so we could more easily fly together. Flying through a domain in HiFidelity is one of the most exciting uses of the platform. I spend a ton of time flying. But I’m never able to share that experience with friend. I’ve tried over and over, it’s just too fast and too easy to get separated.
Running in HMD is too convoluted. We shouldn’t need to run a script from the marketplace to run in HMD. And since most people using desktop switch from walking to running constantly, it’s difficult to tour a domain with a friend when I’m in HMD and they are in desktop. They run, I can’t keep up. So then I fly. Right past them, going three times the speed they are running.
Seems to me what would be ideal is that each form of locomotion would have two or three speeds and we would have access to those speeds intuitively in both desktop and HMD mode.
Walk: no speed control
Run: slow jog, fast sprint
Fly: slow, medium, fast
What do you all think?
