Virtual Reality cave surveying -- TunnelVR

(1/1)

goatchurch:
Hey folks, I've been working on a cave survey drawing program in VR (after spending the last two decades doing the conventional cave survey drawing program TunnelX: https://github.com/goatchurchprime/tunnelx/).

I think it's a lot more fun to use, and simpler because you're not trying to represent something that is fundamentally 3D in a technical 2D diagram.  And you can edit it over the network in real time with other people.

There's a release here, which works on the PC (if it doesn't have VR then you can steer it with mouse and keyboard).   https://sidequestvr.com/app/1630

But if you've got an Oculus Quest (now retailing at £300), it runs pretty well on that.

I'm looking for anyone with an interest who wants a demo (it's networked, so I can guide you from within the game). 

alastairgott:
that looks like an interesting way to show a cave.

Rob:
This is a really interesting project. Maybe the future of cave surveys?

Well worth having a go and supporting if people can. Plus it'll probably be the only way many of you will be able to get to the end of Cussey  :lol:

goatchurch:
Download and run the file for your operating system (the zip file is for Windows) from here to see if it works:
    https://github.com/goatchurchprime/tunnelvr/releases/tag/v0.6.2

Then email me on julian@goatchurch.org.uk with your phone number/whatsapp/telegram contact and I can join you in VR and show you how it works.

goatchurch:
I've just implemented signposts in it, so you can label and put directions in the passages.  It's in v0.6.3 now.
