  1. Resize any object

    There are many objects that I would love in a bigger or a smaller size. This is not possible natively in Home, which is a shame.
    Resizing an object is a basic thing in programming, it shouldn't be hard to do!
    I suggest you do it like Oculus Medium : when holding an object, pressing the grip of the second controller and spreading the arms (or, on the contrary, bringing them closer) change the size of the object.
    This control is basic, natural, and implemented in many other apps.

    Thank you!

    • Allow Go Users to Visit my Room

      I have a few friends who have Oculus Go. I also have a brother who I bought a Go for for his birthday. I have a Rift.

      We can do party calls. But I can not visit their Oculus Rooms Home and they can not visit my Rift Core Beta 2.0 Home either. If anything It would be amazing to have the ability to visit each other using our native platforms (or at least one or the other, where they can visit me or I could visit their spaces).

      • a problem support cannot figure out.

        support and i have been emailing back and forth for a few months now and still have not come to any kind of solution. they have directed me here with hopes that the next update may have some of my issues resolved.
        in home my pointer goes thru some objects but not others and i cannot select anything from my "left hand" menu after pulling it up. some objects i can interact with and others i cannot. for example, i can pick up the bow but cannot draw back to fire. there are times, not always, where i can see…

        • Decouple the look direction from the walking direction.

          The way movement currently works, you walk in the direction that you look. This is contrary to how we move in real life, of course, and is both confusing and difficult to work with, resulting in awkward and inaccurate control.

          We must have realistic movement control of our avatar as an option.

            I'm not saying a whole planet or any thing like that, but it would be nice depending on the environment you choose for your home that you are currently in, there would be an elevator/ door that would take you to a common area themed to your Background.

            A Space Station with a huge observatory for the space environment,

            A high tech mall for the for the futuristic city environment,

            A valley of flowers with a small town with the mountain environment

            Access to the docks and ships for the Docks environment.

            • Make Home Item generation more intelligent

              Right now it seems that the item generation for Home artifacts is completely random, and does not take into account what is already in your possession.

              This is fine when a user's collection of items is low, but as the user's library grows it creates a situation where they are more likely to get items that they already have from the random pull.

              I suggest keeping the completely random pull for some subset of the draw (90%?), but for a smaller subset ensure that the pool from which the Home item is pulled is made up of only items that…

              • In Desperate Need of more Interactive/Social Objects!!

                We could definitely use either some more animated objects for our homes or better yet some interactive options, the current ones are Awesome, but they're very much a solo affair, ie: Boomerang, Blimp.. yeah sure a couple people or more could stand around putting golf balls, but the novelty is going to lose it's shine rather quickly, how about some virtual pets even, or random critters in the environments!?..

                Just some random game Ideas off the top of my head:
                - Chess
                - Ping Pong Table
                - Pool Table
                - Dart Board

                  • make achievements smaller, or scalable

                    the achievement plaques are now way to display multiple achievements or make any kind of trophy case for them. it would be nice of they would be the size of a postcard or make them scalable so we can decide our selves how and where to display them.

                    • Change the motion system in Home

                      Hey there,
                      Thank you for implementing the natural walking in Home. But as it is today, the system is unpractical, unnatural, and unusual. Here's the list of all the problems :

                      - This is not the usual method for character controlling. Everyone using gamepads is used to having one stick for translations, one stick for rotations. Even those who use keyboard&mouse are used to assymetric controls (for example, WASD for translations and the mouse for rotations). This is how EVERY SOFTWARE is designed, there is no point in making it otherwise. This just goes against any intuition.

                      - There are…

                        Would be nice to recreate real room layouts.

                        Entering;
                        - Basic floor layout.
                        - Setting wall hight.
                        - Adding Windows to walls (hight/width/distance from floor level)
                        - Adding Doors to walls (open or closed/hight/width)
                        - Adding Openings to walls (square or round/hight/width/distance from floor level)
                        - Adding outside environment (360/Panorama or ordinary photos as background outside windows/openings/doors.)

                          • Oculus Gallery, a new Oculus Home space to place your sculpts/*paintings

                            I'm testing exporting my Oculus Medium sculpts to Oculus Home, It's great and easy but there is a big problem, there are no home options for light control.
                            The light totally changes the perception and details of the sculpture https://imgur.com/a/TbbSByA, even more the digital sculpts because of the normals and shaders.
                            My suggestion is to add a new type of home, specifically to serve as a gallery.
                            In this gallery, by default no light (other than the ambient) is set (having option to control the intensity and who knows color *day time* of the ambient light).

                              Oculus tech support is working on this, but they suggested I also post it here.About as month ago when in Home (beta), the left Touch controller permanently displayed the hovering "press the menu button to open tray" message. This did not go away and was very distracting. I contacted tech support, who had me reboot, then log out of Oculus and log back in, then switch Touch batteries, and finally do a reinstall/repair of the Oculus drivers. This last suggestion fixed the issue. But a few days ago, the issue returned, and the repair thing does not fix it. A…

                              • Can you please make the guardian system function in 3 Dimensions

                                I would like to know where my bed or my desks are, this makes it easier for me to not hit anything (as i can tell where i am and what is and isnt an actual wall) and i would be able to know where i can place things and where i have placed them. This helps a lot with room orientation and it could be done by using the controllers height or some sort of raycast.

                                • be able to upgrade your items and have different modals

                                  This would be good so that you can have different types of the same items for example with the headset that you can put on to enter the game, at the moment it is just Oculus but it would be cool if it could also be the ready player one or start off with a wire and you upgrade to wireless.

                                  • More Homes/Artifacts!

                                    In order to accommodate new custom artifacts from Medium, etc, and in anticipation of additional exterior “Surroundings”, we definitely need more Homes than the current 4 and we need to have the object limit raised from 500 to, say, 750. I have easily reached 500 items on 4 homes without displaying any game cartridges/boxes.

                                    • Adjust player height in dash

                                      Please allow an option to adjust the vertical height of the player in Dash. There are many instances where I start some software only to be only inches from the ground. Other times I would much rather sit down than stand and want to adjust my height so I still appear to be standing in VR. This is a feature that is already available in Steam VR, and is a basic functionality that should have really already been present. Please make this one of your priorities.

                                      • Launch Applications with Dev-provided Place-able Objects

                                        As a game developer, I would like to be able to submit a 3D model with my app that owners of my game can place in their homes, which also let them launch my game with their friends. For instance, the object could be a chess board, or a snow globe with a representation of my game world, or a figurine.
                                        Then players could walk up to the object and be prompted to play my game with coordinated launch/deep linking/etc.

                                        • AI Butler and companions

                                          It'd be awesome to have a AI butler (look could depend on home location) nothing too crazy and when not in use he could be seen around doing things or disappear and be summoned.

                                          Alternatively, AI companions (characters unique to home and pets) that could hang out in your home would be cool
