How to put the MRE app in Altspace VR?

MRE Sample Link:

wss://mres.altvr.com/skybox

Parameters

SkyboxMRE provide three parameters for you to customize your experience. The parameters are not case sensitive. Here is the list:

  • url
  • scale
  • moderator

URL

Provide a permanent link for the SkyboxMRE so you don’t have to set skybox url each time you use it.

Example:

wss://mres.altvr.com/skybox?url=https://docs.unity3d.com/uploads/Main/skybox-lat-long-layout.png

Size

Change the size of the skybox for different scenarios

Options:

  • small : private viewing section
  • medium : small group
  • large : replace the skybox
  • or any given number in decimal

Example:

wss://mres.altvr.com/skybox?scale=small

Moderator?

A boolean value to set if only the moderator can change the URL in realtime

Options:

  • false or off : everyone can use the button and change the URL of the skybox. Great for a 360 image sharing section
  • true or on : only the host can change the URL of the skybox.

Example:

wss://mres.altvr.com/skybox?moderator=false
wss://mres.altvr.com/skybox?moderator=on

Content Pack

  1. Format parameters in json format (refer to the json template)
  2. host on https://account.altvr.com/content_packs
  3. get the content pack id from the url
  4. create an MRE with the content pack parameter set as the id

Example:

wss://mres.altvr.com/skybox?content_pack=1824573042232132050

Content Pack template:

{
  "url": "YourImageURLHere",
  "scale": "a number, small, medium or large",
  "moderator": "true, on, false, off"
}

Combined?

Example:

wss://mres.altvr.com/skybox?url=https://docs.unity3d.com/uploads/Main/skybox-lat-long-layout.png&scale=small&moderator=false
