  1. Have standard joystick locomotion as an option in settings (with strafing)

    I’d love to see the capability to control using the left stick for movement and the right stick for turning, as opposed to teleport locomotion. I understand that some users may experience motion sickness this way however, so perhaps an option in the settings?

    Hey all – we’re marking this idea as started, as joystick locomotion was implemented in a previous software update. However, from the comments, it is clear that this idea has morphed a bit to include the specific request of strafing being included in the control scheme. I’ve updated the idea title to include the request for strafing controls. Thanks!

  2. Allow more customization of Guardian

    Allowing more customization of the guardian wall would have a positive impact on user experience. Many of us already know the bounds of our playspace, and don't need the thick, bright guardian wall popping up all the time, but also want more notice than the floor square. This is especially true now that the sensitivity of when the wall appears has increased with the Core 2.0 beta. Some welcome customization options would be the following:

    1) Guardian wall sensitivity slider
    2) Guardian wall opacity slider
    3) Guardian wall line thickness slider
    4) Guardian wall color options
    5) Guardian wall texture…

    Hi all! Thanks for submitting and voting for this idea.

    We recently added the ability to adjust the Guardian sensitivity, which you can find in the settings menu while in VR.

    Since this idea is a bit more expansive in terms of what is being asked for, we’re going to leave this open for voting. We hope you enjoy the new Guardian settings that have been added in the meantime!

  3. Option to disable Home

    I love Dash, and I noticed that before Home loads, you can just have Dash in a blank environment. I would like this.

    Home has awful performance on my PC and I honestly just don't care for it, but I know others love it, so I would like an option in the settings to disable home but keep Dash instead of going back to the classic Oculus home.

    I'm running a GTX 1060 3GB, i5-6600K, and 8GB DDR4 and Home is unusable for me.

    Thanks for voting for this idea! Within the 1.42 PTC software update, there is an option to disable the automatic launching of Home. Switching this setting off will stop Home from auto-launching in scenarios like jumping into VR and exiting out of apps. You can find this option within the Settings > General menu inside Oculus desktop app. Please opt into the public test channel to check it out and let us know what you think!
