What is the Altspace Unity Uploader?
Simply, it’s an addon that you load into your Unity that connects your Unity project to Altspace for assets, kits and scenes to be processed, bundled and uploaded for use on AltspaceVR.
Altspace requires users to be opted in to the ‘Early Access Program’ and have ‘Worlds Beta’ turned on. You must have a Windows PC or MacOS (Windows recommended) that meets the minimal requirements. The higher-end your PC or laptop device is, the better performance you will have.
TIP: Unity is a resource-intensive software to use at times and it is recommended to invest in buying a Windows PC that has 16GB of Ram, an i5 processor or equivalent with at least 2GB of graphics memory as an entry barrier for a comfortable experience.
