    Hi !
    Which one of the current ''VR starting kits'' would you recommend ?
    A reference could be Boneworks... or Nimsoni's showroom (
    ), or this playground by Exo: https://beyondinfiniti.itch.io/theplayground

    Thank you.

    I don't think there is anything accessible, don't know boneworks, but Nimsony's controller is A LOT of work, I don't think it would be a wise choice for him to make it public, even paid lol

    Some forks are active: https://github.com/TomorrowTodayLabs/NewtonVR/network

    Personally my plan was to wait for the XR Interaction Toolkit and hopefully use that as a base. Assuming Unity can hold of deprecating it for more than a couple of days it should provide a decent base with less of the Valve/Oculus cruft and churn.

    Now it's been released I need to spend a bit of time digging into it and seeing what's missing. Some of the other new stuff coming from Unity (those physics constraint things I forget the name of) might mesh quite nicely with it.

    And how did you manage in the end :) ?
    On my side I went with SteamVR and Bolt this VR road is a fun road so far learning !
