I have been on track with my Unity studies using Trello. I am about to start a personal project to test what I’ve learned with VRTK. I have completed a few of the tutorial videos and have successfully installed the toolkit into an example project. The challenge now is to be able to repeat the process on a new project and then tie user interactions to my own assets rather than those used in the tutorial.
I will test myself using my one-week (2 hours a day) deadline for a simple working environment. The only issues I foresee at the moment is having to fine tune the settings to get my assets to work correctly with VRTK. Being to teleport around the environment, interact with objects and trigger sound effects will be the yardstick to measure the results by. Having practiced with the examples, this should a good challenge and signal that it’s time to push myself a bit harder with the Unity. Being able to build basic interactive environments means being able to iterate quicker and start working on projects with more confidence. I have some extra time this week to bank towards this project, giving myself some wiggle room for an unforeseen problem. VRTK developers also have a very active Discord giving me additional help should I need it.
I will update this post with picture at the end of the week.
