  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!

      • 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).
        Additional lights and…

        • Custom room layout & Scenery tool

          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.)

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Snapshots from games viewable on Home TV's as a slideshow

                  With the release of virtual-screens for Oculus Home and the ability to display windows content in vr, I have an interesting idea. Phone have a button combination that allow you to save a screenshot of whatever is on the screen at the time and save it to a directory to view later. I'd love for some combination of the oculus button and another button on the controller to trigger something like this, saving a photo that we can then view later in Home, arrange into lists, and view as a slideshow on one of the virtual screens littered about our…

                  • 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

                    • 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.

                      • Larger TV Screen !

                        The current tv screens require u to be quite close to see clearly. For movie viewing with multiplayer, we need a TV at least 2X the size of the current ones. Something that can be viewed from a distance. Thank you

                        • Real Keyboard & Mouse projection

                          I would like to have a Live WEB Camera facing down to display my real keyboard and mouse on the real table.

                          Then I would like to display that image on a virtual table surface in VR and/or below the desktop screen when looking down as an option!

                          This would simplify finding the keyboard and place your hands correctly on keyboard and mouse when needing to use them typing/playing etc.

                          Live Image should be possible to be dimmed / transparent.
                          (Masking out original table / mousepad from an image)

                            • Custom Artifacts for non-artists

                              It’s exciting that we will soon have the ability to import our own creations from Oculus Medium, however for those who are not professional artists, we also need a simple software tool that converts files from Tiltbrush, Blocks, Quill, etc to the right size file in the .glb format. Animated Tiltbrush files would look fabulous in our Homes if only the formats were made compatible. Since Oculus doesn’t seem inclined to create a store where artists can market more exotic artifacts than most of us can create, we need some other sort of clearing-house for people to share/sell their creations.

                                When messing around in the oculus home, resetting and even deleting homes some objects don't go back into the inventory and seem to be permantently lost. (Quantity of some objects stays zero.)

                                • The ability to upload a short clip or moving images (Possibly with sound) and hang it on the wall or something so others can see it.

                                  I think it will be great to make Home more personal. Because currently, all items are common to everyone (except manual model impots but not all can make them). A short clip hanging on the wall could be amazing.

                                  • Keep new embedded dash panels unlocked

                                    I like the new screens (TV, game console, etc) which allow us to embed windows. However, everytime I start the system, they forget what I had embedded. This is made more painful because I have to go into the configuration and unlock the home setup before I am able to re-embed their respective content. So for a quick fix, allow us to embed content even if Oculus home is locked. Long term, work out a way that it can remember the content between power cycles.

                                      Allow other windows apps (Pandora, plex, etc...) To be pinned to the new screens.

                                      • Add a more aggressive guardian option and make it easy to switch between guardian modes

                                        Sometimes the guardian system's light blue grid is too gentle when I'm quickly moving my arms and body in certain games (like ping pong, sword fighting, etc.). It feels like a suggestion not a warning and it's easy to reach past the bounds. In certain games, it would be very helpful for peace of mind if the guardian turned more forceful when reaching past the bounds for certain games - it could turn the grid red, sound a loud audio alarm, vibrate the out of bounds controller, or begin occluding vision completely. If it feels like a warning I will…

                                        • Home - Basic pre-sets for starters

                                          I would like to see basic pre-sets, which can then be tweaked in terms of floor and decor.
                                          (unfortunately not all are creative or are limited by time!)

                                          Basic start points:
                                          - office room
                                          - student bedroom
                                          - luxury loft
                                          - grand bookshelf lined, with large fireplace (Batman mansion type)
                                          - trading room -multi screen setup
                                          - etc
