I have very little experience with this but I *am* a very experienced Business Analyst with Software Development (Desktop Application as well as Web Development). I'm available if you need that.

What a cool idea if we could incorporate VR with our chats and stuff! Unfortunately I have no experience in the area but would be very interested in learning how to use them in regards to my UFS work:)

I am sorry, but I don't have any experience with 3D VR type stuff.

I emailed you at milesprower.dagger@ufstarfleet.org. I don't recall another email for you, and since I was gone so long I don't have my old @ufstarfleet.org email to verify addresses.

The Open Source solution I started looking into would does not seem to require it. It's PC/Linux/Mac/iPad/Android compatible, though if it DID, there's always the cardboard versions of goggles which can be fitted to the phone of your choice.

VR Chat has a desktop option that doesn't need the headset or trackers. I am not sure about other VR things.

A while ago I did check into Sansar, but was unwilling to spend a few hundred dollars to get a VR headset.

According to my research, apparently you can play VRChat through Steam, and without a VR headset (just a normal headset & mic).
https://www.gameskinny.com/jykb9/can-i- ... without-vr

VRchat looks rather like a version of SL to me
https://www.gameskinny.com/5td1b/vrchat ... ng-started

In April 2022 the peak number of people playing VRchat on Steam was 38,176
If you download the game it is 1GB, and it is Free to Play.

It certainly seems like an area for us to explore. A blender expert could create a UFS build/world/home and there are custom avatars as well.

VRChat is voice only, no text chat option. So a mic is required for communication.

This sounds exciting :) I only doubt if my 7years Linux rig will be capable to handle all this. Anyhow I'm gonna get me a new pc in the near Future (but Linux stays).

It's Linux. It can do it! I played STO a few years ago with a guy who used a ten year old UNIX rig - UNIX, not BSD/FreeBSD/MacOSX/Solaris!

It's really too bad the developer of the Lumiya client is MIA. She had VR under way. It works with Google Goggles amd compatible headsets. It can still connect to SL but I can't seem to get tit to connect to 3RG anymore. You can't even find the APK on the Play Store anymore so you have to get it from someone who has the APK backed up. (I do.)
