  2. The ability to set the opacity for a limited number of objects in your world without having to resort to text tricks would be useful. we could have frameless windows using semitransparent stretched cubes, and we could have 3D shapes that have transparency.

    Having a "plastic" property on a shape that has transparency would give us "proper" looking windows, although if we can only have transparency on "unlit" objects, I'm sure we'd still be happy.

  3. The ability to mirror objects would make building things like body parts (hands, eyes, arms, legs etc.) Very quick and easy.

  4. The ability to have environment areas so you can select where an environment starts and ends. For example, instead of fog everywhere, you could allow outside fog only and not inside.

  5. Allowing creators to make their own tools will fundamentally change how creators work. With asset library and the ability to make your own tools creators could make (and share - once asset library allows that):

    • a "space junk finder"
    • a "outliner" of all objects in the world
    • a layer manager (e.g. put objects in layers and lock / unlock a whole layer)
    • procedural creation in build mode
    • arbitrary snap tools (e.g. snap to increments of 12 degrees, sure!)
    • create UIs for keyframe animation
    • create color pickers (such as HSV)
    • and much much more...!

    Here's how Horizon could do this...

    There's…

  7. Any of the text entry fields in Horizon Worlds are simply usability horrors. The field to enter text is very small, and there is no easy way to scroll it. It should, at least:
    - be significantly wider
    - expand vertically when the user enters newlines (not <br>)
    - permit easy scrolling of the field both horizontally and vertically
    - have saner selection behavior (it's very unpredictable right now)
    - allow copy/paste between text fields in different gizmos
    - have a straight raycast at the keyboard rather than a droopcast that makes it nigh impossible to select a text position…

  9. It's so difficult to position a wearable right now because you have to do it by entering numbers and then trying it on. It would be nice to have a "dummy" onto which you could position the wearable, similar to the hand anchor positioning "ghost hands".

  10. A way to select multiple objects in your world, bring up the 'multi-selection' property panel (i.e. NOT a group), and click a new button to 'export selection as new world'. The new world would be named "<original world name> (Selection)" or something, similar to world cloning.

    This feature would effectively solve the space junk problem, as people could just extract their wanted assets into a new world, leaving the space junk behind. They could carefully count the objects selected to be sure they are only getting the number they expect.

    This feature would also greatly enhance the ability for people…

  12. Capacity is only vaguely defined. All objects, gizmos, & dynamic aspects should clearly have their individual capacity shown in the attribute section in the object interface. Preferably with 2 decimal places. With this individual capacity display, we could map out a world with a CAPACITY BUDGET. You could preplan a build and stop work in certain areas when you hit your ‘budget’ in that area. One step further, if you select multiple objects, a capacity meter could be available to determine the capacity on a section of the world.
    No more guesstimating by deleting objects to determine their capacity impact.…

  13. For instance, the hexagon only has two points that can be snapped to because those two points are at the midpoint of opposite sides. The other 4 points don't correspond to places on the bounding box that can be snapped to.

  14. Let's say you want lots of versions of the exact same object group. Right now, you can make copies, but if you then change the original, you have to make changes to each copy or delete them all, re-copy, and reposition everything.

    • With "instances", you could make it so that modifying just one instance makes the same change for every instance.
    • The rendering engine might be able to take advantage of the fact that they're all identical to optimize drawing.
    • If you wanted to, you could convert an instance to a regular copy and make changes to it.

  15. Torus and Pipe can only be transformed by simple scale and stretch methods. The inner radius of these primitives is currently fixed. This could be vastly improved if the inner radius could be adjusted, allowing users to make all manner of rings, tubes, pipes etc. I'll be cheeky and refer the development team to my other suggestion to allow fractional: halves and quarters to primitives. If these two tool suggestions were implemented, it would mean that users could make far more efficient curved shapes. For example, at prenent, If I wanted to make a curved handrail, I would need to…

  16. Allow us to use pictures we can already take with our camera gizmo in horizon.

    We could hang them on walls, attach them to shapes. We could make attacheables like hats or create models or scenes, then take a picture and delete the objects and hang the pictures in our worlds or attach them to objects.

    This would be a game changer.

  18. A gizmo that allows you to record your avatar and play on demand.

    Use cases include:
    - Offering a more humanlike interaction when giving audio instructions.
    - Enhancing audio recordings by adding body language. (Great for storytelling)
    - Making a world feel more occupied when there aren't many visitors.

    Rec Room Holotars are a great example of this feature.

  19. Please better integrate script sample assets, help videos, and help documentation into the build process to provide for a more seamless workflow. It's nice having the videos in Horizon, and viewing them in order is good for those who are new to building and scripting, but I don’t want to wade through the whole list until I get to the video that concerns the code block I’m interested in learning about. (Have not seen how to filter them yet, and maybe I missed it.) Would prefer an additional way to access them through the script gizmo interface; as I’m browsing…

  20. Please list out which text fonts are available for use. If they are not available or in use at this time please import a bigger variety of fonts. Having a world with plain font can take away from the creation aspect.
    If the list of fonts is already available please post this list of font names so we can reference this list. Thank you!
