I suppose because, SDK will be available soon, months before Dk2 release (july), here.

Edit :

From the faq of dk2 :

Quote
Yes, your VR content developed with the original Oculus Rift Development Kit is compatible with the Oculus Rift Development Kit 2. You may need to make some changes to your content to take advantage of the new features of the Oculus Rift Development Kit 2. If you view your modified project in the original Oculus Rift Development Kit, it can be viewed at a lower resolution and positional tracking will be switched off.

It is surprising that Oculus VR didn't include backward compatibility...

In my humble opinion, and without having tried SE with a Rift, the work of SpaceEngineer on DK1 compatibility doesn't sound useless: UI has to be adapted anyway, and hooks placed at relevant places in the code. I just hope that he won't lose too much of his dev time adapting it for DK2.

In a way, positional tracking is a must for a software like SE: it could allow the user to turn around a planet/star or lean forward to take a closer look. Imagine throwing your face into a nebula!

I didn't implement "God eyes": you can't throw your face into a nebula. 3D depth is realistic, based on your IPD measured by Oculus utility. Changing IPD to parsecs is very confusing and make huge motion sickness.
The main advantage of Oculus in SE is field of view and sense of scale. You can distinguish distance to objects only within few kilometers. And you an rotate your head to look on a gas giant and rings in the sky. Positional tracking adds only few centimeters shift, which is negligible in SE now.

Hi SpaceEngineer,

thanks for the update!

How did you try positional tracking? With Razer Hydra?

Edit : sorry i misunderstood your post, i thought you already tried implementing positional tracking... Thanks again for the update. Can't wait to try it out!

If i understand, you're saying that just the freedom of the dk1 is necessary for SE experience ?
You just need 3 rotations of the head and not the translations (new mouvements of the dk2).

If my understanding is correct, i must say that you forgot something.
The new dk2 has, as we know, less motion sickness.
apparently it's coming from the better screen (contrast, color, resolution, low persistence), and the 6 DOF (degre of freedom).
The 3 translations are a part of that, if you take away these mouvements, maybe you will cause more discomfort.

Anyway, thank you for your work, i'll wait till june to test your adaptation if it is available.

You may notice head translations only if you trying to look in the face of astronaut from Odyssey 2001 mod. Or if you fly close to ship radiator to look on its texture bluriness. All other scenes (99.99%) are take place in space or at high altitude above a planet, where you can't notice parallax caused by 10 cm movements of your head.

But anyway, taking DK2 would be good:)

I understand "God eyes" are not needed for Oculus, but what about other 3D methods? They won't be worth it 99% of the time if God eyes are not implemented there, and see a 3D starry space while flying at several times of c is awesome smile

Even without "God's eyes" 3D vision should still give an immersive effect since it allows you to see the stars at infinity as opposed to a screen half a meter in front of you.

If you haven't seen in the "Funding and Donations" section. The first goal at $300 is OR support. So it has been thought of for a while. smile

I'm not sure if you were replying directly to SolarLiner, because SL acknowledged that, and was talking about other 3D applications, like 3D monitors, where that aspect doesn't (usually) apply.

Hi, it's been 2 month since this discussion.
Is there news ?
I'm wondering if the release of the oculus compatibility will be in June or July ?

I'm curious because i'm waiting for this experience since a long time, my father will be impressed, i would love to see his reaction to this.

Anyway, keep the work and thx for all, you're doing such a amazing job.

Dev Kit two has rolled out, and there has been a trickle of info about Consumer Version One, but nothing concrete, as far as I'm aware. It's likely to share the latest Samsung Galaxy phone's 1440p screen, as DK2 uses the S3's 1080p screen.

I'd say the announcement of the CV1 release date - which is really all we're after - will be at one of the next few big tech trade shows.
