Beta Disclaimer

This project was built using 2020.3.24f1 and should work as expected on that version. It is feasible to downgrade this project to a previous version of the Unity software but it may cause issues in doing so.

This project uses the newer Unity software XR management system and the newer Unity Input system.

This VRTK v4 Farm Yard example project has been updated to use the latest Tilia packages but is still in development and is missing a number of features from the previous release that used the deprecated VRTK.Prefabs package.

The current missing features are:

  • Locomotion
    • Drag World
  • Pointers
    • PlayArea Boundary Cursor

These features will be added in due course.

If you want to get started with the Tilia repos then check out the Bowling Tutorial.
