What i like to see or have (maby more a wishlist) , but maby a bit to early


Just a bit global topic, so we can place more things under this topic.
I know High Fidelity is still early alpha and heavy in development,
just want to point out a few things that are in my mind or i have heared.
Maby some settings are already available.

Function to disable faceshift in hifi, so your avatar mouth as example dont get active when your chewing gum, have some handicap etc.

Function to disable the headtracking to avatar. its offcorse ok if the oculus rift rotates the world when you turn your head. but please make option so the avatar ignores the head movements.

Function, but thats more something Oculus rift DK2 users need to point out on the oculus rift forum. a hardware switch to turn off the microphone. i dont trust software solution and you forget them.

A good chat system, because chat is always more clear in many cases and more easy to understand then voice. also chat communicate much better then with voice.

Thats all what came up in my mind the last hours.

Note: corrected some typos :open_mouth:


I’d like a way to have chat logs be saved to disk similar to the way the SL type viewers do. Say, into Roaming > High Fidelity. I also would like to be able to see the text chat when I’ve moved focus away from the viewer, right now the chat window vanishes until I set focus back on the viewer again.


Hi @Richardus you can disable headtracking for faceshift right now

We would agree that chat still needs work (I believe there were some worklist jobs that went up for it). Also given the open nature of the code I would imagine that there will be many variations of Interface.

If you guys have friends that know C++ we have a good number of worklist jobs right now they could get going on.


I haven’t been able to get very far with hifi, in part because I’m confused about how to change my avatar from the robot one. I’m also confused about what our “inventory” is, or how to access it. Those might be “problem exists between keyboard and chair” problems, however; I still have a ton of reading to do, and maybe it’s something I haven’t found yet.

My general wish is some sort of “here’s how you do the tasks in hifi that you’re used to doing in SL or other games” list.


Hi @Han_Held to change your avatar you can go to Preferences and change your Head and Body by clicking on the magnifying glass. (Also check out the video from 1.15 see: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bye4yso5gguap4z/Intro%20to%20High%20Fidelity%20Alpha.mp4 )

There are also a few forum posts outlining ways people have rigged and uploaded their own avatars. Here is an example of uploading from Mixamo. https://www.dropbox.com/s/evp45oynsferbie/Uploading%20a%20Character.mp4 (from this forum post: https://alphas.highfidelity.io/t/mixamo-avatars-how-to-upload-them/291/10 .

As far as inventory goes, we currently have no concept of avatar specific inventory other than your locations.
