Expressions VR
October 16, 2018

"Expressions VR" is to be a place where I can show off mini-vr experiences. This allows me to test technologies and ideas.

Field of flowers
The first scene is a simple field of flowers inspired by this photo I found on Reddit. The initial thought was this would allow me to learn how to use Gaia, and while this asset was quite easy to use and impressive, what I ended up learning was the details about third party vegitation and it's use within Unity

I also learned, as I did with Heartbeat City, is the limitations of the VR platform. The majority of the vegitation had to be 2d panels as the frame rate could not handle the tens of thousands of 3d flowers that this scene required.

This is a simple scene and there is no user navigation within the environment. It is designed as a two minute experience, simply sit on the bench and enjoy the view.

I created the following scene as I saw an amazing photo of forest filled with fireflies. Because I am originally from the West Coast, where I never, ever got to see fireflies, so I thought it would be a nice and quick distraction, as well as a nice art piece where the user can sit and experience fireflies. Nothing to do, no where to go. Just sit and enjoy the scene.
