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!

Trying to navigate in Home while seated is a nightmare. I get that it feels pretty natural as a roomscale experience, but when seated I want to use the right stick to turn around and I just end up teleporting into my furniture.

Being able to teleport then adjust by moving a couple of steps would be very helpful.

This is one of the most important options imo. Teleport as default and free locomotion as an option to avoid problems for thoose who have not developed "vr legs".
Snap turning, free turning, free locomotion..
And if that will take a while to implement then could we at least get the rotation of the teleports locked to the joystick only instead of also being tied to the rotation of the controller. Even better if the rotation teleport direction you choose is deciding the front face of the sensors rather than the way your head is currently rotated.
Yes and snap turning please! Like skyrimVR basically.
Better to word it as an added *option* or something. There's no way they would outright swap away from teleporting.
I too would like options for regular locomotion, and even smooth turning.

First thing I noticed. Not being able to walk and turn completely ruins the whole experience

I can't believe it is teleport and snap turn only. :(
Would definately prefer the option to be able to snap turn with the joystick and smooth locomotion. Was a bit surprised it wasn't included here considering we aren't in steamVR.

I never liked just teleport. There is no reason it can't be fluid travel rather than teleport.
Was just coming here to ask for the same thing. Smooth locomotion and turning options. Voted.
