Oculus Rift S and Rift


Welcome to the Oculus Rift S and Rift feedback forum! This is the location to provide all your feature requests and ideas for the Oculus Rift platform. We're looking forward to hearing from you on the following areas of the product:

  • Dash: Oculus Dash is the in-VR command center the pops up when you hit the Oculus button on your Touch controller. Dash allows you to access PC Desktop apps, your VR Library, and other system settings and services from anywhere in VR.
  • Desktop App: This is the out-of-VR Oculus application on your PC that allows you to do things like browse the store, manage your settings, and view your friends list, among other things.
  • General: Use this category for any feedback that doesn’t fit neatly into one of the other more specific categories.
  • Home: This is your customizable in-VR home where you can show off your unique style and decorations.
  • Store: The place where all VR app purchasing takes place. The Store category covers both the out-of-VR and in-VR stores.
Please do your best to ensure all ideas are original and have not been previously submitted. Thanks for helping us improve Oculus Rift S and Rift!    
  1. A gallery and game assets/models as trophies

    Because the home space is very limited it could get hard for some people with a larger library to display all their achievements/trophies. A gallery/trophy hall could help with that.

    It could be a picture where people can walk through and are transported into a hall.

    Unlockable game assets/models, tied to achievements (or playtime)
    could act as trophies for harder achievements and would make the gallery more interesting.
    Something like the robot models from robo recall, the robot wobble head or the figurines from luckys tale...

  2. Be able to experience a "replay" of other users/friends exploring your home.

    Like the Ghost function of Janus VR, we can look at what other people (including yourself on your previous use) were doing as they were exploring your room.

    In addition, there can an option for other users to see the last X number of users first Y number of minutes in that room (ex: up to the last 4 other user's first 10 minutes in the space). Rewatching that would be more fun as the most recent user recording would be reacting to the other 3 or 4 user recordings.

    Such things would make your home seem more lively. Perhaps…

  3. Improved Rotation

    The current method of pressing the button to cycle the rotation axis feels really unintuitive to me - Having something rotate vertically but adjusting with left/right on the joystick just feels wrong.

    Instead rather than the current implementation of being able to adjust distance and rotation at the same time, have these separate to allow better control of each individually (even if it's just hold a trigger to enable rotation or something like that). The you could adjust the rotation by just holding the joystick in the desired direction.

    Other suggestions that people have made around rotation snapping increments /…

  4. Homemade Games/Scoring

    Allow targets to be given a point value, then assigned to a "game", then a score can be tallied as the player hits targets, maybe with an option to set a timer, then manually reset the score for the next round/player. No game logic needed, just a simple way to have the score counted for you.

  5. A place to shop or earn items. Hidden home items in game

    Im absolutely loving the new home. Its amzing. One thing i like about gaming is unlocking new stuff, rare items, and customisation. please make a ton of stuff for this, maybe even expand rooms. this could grow into a big thing if you made many ways to expand our options. Whether its simply paying for items, or hiding stuff in games. maybe even give third partys the option to make and sell home items. like Second Life

  6. Pin leaderboards from your favourite games to walls

    I like how you can pin your achievements to the walls. How about doing the same thing for leaderboards for your favourite games. When you come in you will be able to see if your friends are beating you and jump back into the game.

  7. Arcade games or Gear VR / Oculus GO emulators

    Some crazy ideas!

    Would be great to run your Gear VR games/apps in a "Virtual" Gear VR / Oculus GO from your Home (Same Oculus Account...)

    Or why not, bring Oculus Arcade into your Home!
    It would be fun to have some playable arcade game machines.

    Maybe as a buyable item?

  8. Better control of the 'stickiness' of blocks.

    So I decided to be creative with the cube shaped blocks. I managed to create what I set out to create, but it involved a lot of frustration. The biggest problem I ran into was that as I was trying to place my block in a specific spot, it would mysteriously glue itself to other nearby blocks. Then when I attempted to move that block (because it didn't quite go where I wanted it), I would suddenly be dragging a bunch of other blocks as well. Blocks that had been exactly where I wanted them to be, and I didn't…

  9. Keep rooftop patio as a home option

    include the current roof top patio environment as an option for home.
    useful for offline or demo modes. or just when you want to sit there listening to the water.

  10. Reduce the physics interaction of the user's head

    I can't look around without knocking all my game boxes off the shelf, and I'm nowhere near them!

  11. Please could I have a jet-pack and a telescope?

    Pretty please...
    It would be nice to fly around that bay and use the telescope to get a better look at those ships.

  14. The controls on how to interact with Oculus Home is initially blocked by tons of objects such as UI

    When first entering Oculus home, When looking down at my controllers to see what buttons were mapped to, the UI blocked it and I had to almost crouch or bend around to see what was going on. Perhaps force a short tutorial in beginning instead of just throwing people into it.

  15. Let developers host rooms for matchmaking/demo environments

    We currently need a solution for multiplayer lobbies - you enter an experience without knowing how populated it is and it can difficult to find like minded people to group up with. How about if developers could host a home room associated with a product that other users could meet in. They could even be themed using props from the respective games so that potential buyers could get an idea of the product.

  16. Some kind of tool or system for aligning and distributing arrays of objects.

    Lining up hundreds of achievements and game boxes could take seconds, but instead its hours of painstaking hand placement? XD

  17. add optional teleport release button

    I find it difficult to release the joystick without bumping the desired location and orientation. If we could just squeeze the trigger instead, I think it will be easier to relocate accurately.

  18. The sound effect when you enter home is really loud and abrasive

    It's a cool sound and all, but when doing VR dev and keeping the headset near by, it makes this sound every time I stop playtesting. It's getting really annoying.

    I miss the old gentle fire crackle and grasshoppers that used to fade in as I rested the dev set on my head after doing a playtest. At least make the noise far more subtle and quiet.

  19. Detach the achievement art from box art and hang it like a painting / poster.

    Exactly as stated in the title. The combined box art achievement art rectangle isn't attractive. But the box art alone (vertical or wide) as a poster, or the achievements alone as square painting would be lovely.

  20. Differentiate between installed and uninstalled apps in Home decorating window

    It's difficult to find all the boxes and cartridges for installed software in the Home decorating window. The library items don't distinguish between installed or not.

    Additionally, would be nice if you'd have the option to automatically spawn the box and cartridge of an app when you install it.
