VR Goggles Trigger (Advanced)

A world created with the VR Goggles Trigger will generate a different experience, depending on if the user is in normal or VR mode. In the following example, a Blockster is sitting on a boat and traveling from Point A to Point B. In normal mode, the camera follows the boat from behind. In VR mode, the game can be experienced from the Blockster’s point of view.

  7. Select the Antigravity block and add the following script:
    • Does [Align]

Free Virtual Reality Set

Please note that you can build a Virtual Reality experience on the iPhone, but the VR viewing mode is only available on the iPhone. You can still create and publish worlds with VR on the iPad, but you only play in VR on an iPhone (as there are no VR headsets designed for the iPad).
