TL;DR: Tried out VR for the first time today, mind blown.

So my university faculty has a project for which they want to show 360° (not to be confused with 3D video!) Live-Video from a drones perspective...

...and they basically got a crazy beefed up rig (live encoding etc. was needed) and one of these Oculus Rift S googles with inside out tracking and two handheld controllers. They build a 360° video player in Unity specifically for their use-case which i got to try out. It sadly wasn't that impressive, the sense of depth just isn't there with drone footage, it doesn't feel different from watching 360° footage on any old 2D screen, which is to be expected with 360° but non-3D footage.

But then came the absolute cracker, they had that "Bullet Train" demo installed, coincidentally Grin. I didn't know what i was getting into, since i forgot about that demo after seeing some screenshots of it years ago, it just isn't very remarkable when you see it on a flat screen... well, the game start's in a very tightly spaced metro train, the first thing you notice is how the hand-rails poke into your field of view, that was already a completely different experience from the 360° video demo, you got a real sense of space. Then it walks you through the basic actions like picking things up and teleporting around, i got to pick up some desert eagle that was laying around and that's when it got me, this item felt like it was there, i don't know how to describe it? The presence is just so much more intense than what you experience on a flat screen. This demo kind of invoked the same feelings i had when playing Half-Life 2 for the first time in the way it sucks you in. It's just so different and new, like a breath of fresh air... even though it's basically just some shooting gallery demo, the feeling of being IN there is unlike anything else. I tried throwing stuff, shooting the walls, picking up an rifle that you can use with 2 hands ... suddenly the train stops and 4 NPCs run towards the closed train door! I took the AK ... got into position ... the door opens ... i smoke em ... shit - gun is empty ... i teleport outside ... go grab new guns ... chaos ensures. That's where it got a bit too hectic though, i wasn't fast enough with the controls and the movement felt very restricting, i stopped the demo at that point.

But i understand the appeal now, you can't really judge how awesome and new this experience feels from watching others play it. I wasn't really blown away when seeing for example the dev-logs of the boneworks framework/game, but now i have a totally different perspective on that. You guys should try this stuff out when you get the chance. I think this will take off like crazy once the technology get's to a point where headset and controllers are wireless, affordable and mature. Also normal PCs need to be able to handle the load which is still a bit of a problem.

So yeah, it was awesome Shocked

Most of the people who come here are probably on a computer as they will be some sort of coder/ programmer / game maker. Not sure an app would be worth the effort

Very nice game.

I like the idea that planes may move behind the buildings and player cant. It makes game a little bit harder.
To make game more enjoyable you may introduce more varied obstacles, planes with different speeds, rain and lightnings, or persons in more difficult places; fuel or time limit.
For example you may introduce the idea that player can also rescue other things (pets, bags), and give some rewards for it.

Made a very small LWJGL 3 / OpenGL 2.0 demo on how to render an infinite grid with just 5 vertices:

Yes, GLFW is not involved at all. The window is managed by JavaFX. DriftFX provides a node (DriftFXSurface) that you can add to a JavaFX scene, with an associated OpenGL context and a "framebuffer" texture. The context is supposed to integrate with the JavaFX rendering backend (even Direct3D on Windows), copying the framebuffer to JavaFX without leaving the GPU.

Does this mean that the window is managed by DriftFX(JavaFX)? instead of GLFW? If so, that's pretty interesting. I'll have to prepare my engine for this. I really hope I can adopt JavaFX!

Yes, DriftFX has a macOS/CGL implementation. One issue is that currently DriftFX creates an OpenGL 4.1 core+debug profile context on all platforms and there's no way to change/configure this.
