    Hey all, so I have been working on a competition shooting training app for the Oculus Quest(s) which started out mostly for myself during lockdown, but over the weeks and months it is slowly coming together to be something a little more.

    I try my best to upload a video log every week with feature updates, the most recent one combines 3D printing with the Oculus controller to create imo the most training-wise, transferable / realistic experience I've had so far if I do say so myself. Since this is mostly a personal project, I'm not really limited by worrying about commercialisation of requiring specific 3D printed hardware to work with the in-game position of things, so they can be made to match really well ergonomically and free to experiment with the weirdest controller placement I could dream up if it helps with training.

    Other unusual features worth noting includes enforcing only using one controller for the game (so you grip a pistol / controller with two hands as you would irl instead of fiddling with two), a "shock" based detection for mag reload, so you tap the bottom of the controller to load a fresh magazine, as well as joystick based slide manipulation, seen in a previous video here. There is also fairly realistic ballistic system where I can input bullet weight, speed, bullet diameter (which is important for paper targets, as the larger the bullet, the more forgiving it is when it comes to scoring, anything that "overlaps" a line counts towards the better zone etc), and rigidbody steel target also benefits from higher kinetic energy so you can get away with less center'ed hits and still knock them down to score.

    Thanks for taking the time to check out this thread! As mentioned, the YouTube channel is scheduled to update once a week, but I will only update this thread with the more interesting logs on later dates.
