  1. Give us an option to go back to home 1.0 (classic)

    Ever since I updated to rift core 2.0 I have had tracking issues and performance issues in games, I propose that we should get the option to get the 'choose what we use' in the options menu, and for people who have just installed oculus, they can see which one looks better for them when setting up rift.

    • Be able to import your own picture files as art.

      It'd be great if you could import your own pictures/art off your own PC and hang them on the wall. You could have pictures of your family, dog, or your favorite piece of art for example.

      • Resize any object

        There are many objects that I would love in a bigger or a smaller size. This is not possible natively in Home, which is a shame.
        Resizing an object is a basic thing in programming, it shouldn't be hard to do!
        I suggest you do it like Oculus Medium : when holding an object, pressing the grip of the second controller and spreading the arms (or, on the contrary, bringing them closer) change the size of the object.
        This control is basic, natural, and implemented in many other apps.

        Thank you!

        • Allow objects to be resized

          You can rotate objects but you can't make them bigger or smaller!

          • Options, options, options!

            We should have native option to disable/enable Oculus Desktop app from loading when using i.e. SteamVR. Also we should have option to disable Home 2 environment from loading while the Dash also should have option to be on in that empty environment and in games if needed.

              • Christmas Tree

                Any chance we could get a Christmas tree and some Christmas decorations before Christmas? I know this is not something EVERYBODY would want, but it would be a nice seasonal addition for our homes.

                I am loving the new update so much! Thanks for all the hard work!

                • User created environments

                  Allowing user created environments for the room and surroundings. They could be available through a community tab/section.
                  Maybe even with a voting system.

                  • Virtual Assistant

                    I feel like it might be really cool to have a custom virtual assistant. Maybe even one we could program ourselves to automate different things we might do.

                    Me: *arrives at home*
                    AI: "Welcome home, sir."
                    Me: "Thank you. Please play my new playlist."
                    AI: "Of course." *starts playing music*

                    Me: "What's the weather like?"
                    AI: *Holograms on wall show*
                    AI: "It is currently 40 degrees outside, don't forget a coat."

                    • DAY/NIGHT mode and dynamic light objects (LAMPS, SPOTLIGHTS ETC)

                      Would love to be able to turn the lights down in my room to make it cozy and relaxing. Have light-emitting objects sections such as lights, desk lamps, laser etc Option to make DAY/NIGHT or sync to the local clock. I think it would add to the immersion! Fantastic work so far dev team! Really enjoying making my room!

                      • Walk in the enviroments!

                        I'm not saying a whole planet or any thing like that, but it would be nice depending on the environment you choose for your home that you are currently in, there would be an elevator/ door that would take you to a common area themed to your Background.

                        A Space Station with a huge observatory for the space environment,

                        A high tech mall for the for the futuristic city environment,

                        A valley of flowers with a small town with the mountain environment

                        Access to the docks and ships for the Docks environment.

                        You could add a few activities people could…

                          • Allow strafing and direct rotation for locomotion

                            Both joysticks are used to rotate while using 'direct rotation'. Strafing only works with rotation set to off. It would be useful to do both at once. One joystick to strafe(left stick) and the other rotate(right stick). I often find myself having to inch back and forth in able to position myself at a target location.

                            The rotation is also very slow. Rotation speed settings would be handy.

                            • Dynamic objects held by one avatar, should be visible for all other visiting avatars

                              Interactive objects held by one avatar, should be visible for all other visiting avatars. Currently I noticed that when someone is visiting my home, and I grab a dynamic object like a ball, or a book, the other avatar cannot see that I have that object in my hands. Same when the other avatar picks up an item, I cannot see it. I am NOT talking about editing the room, but playing with the dynamic objects, like bow/arrows, balls, books etc.

                              • Open all reward boxes at once

                                The other day it took me nearly 15 minutes to open all of the reward boxes I had earned since the last time I checked. It would be nice to just have an "open all" button that just adds whatever I got to my inventory. Grabbing the box and throwing it is only a cool mechanic the first couple of times. After about 100 it starts to get really old.

                                  • Have a dedicated Movie Room.

                                    It could have a giant screen to watch youtube etc on their. Maybe make a an extension of the current home space so you enter a door or something that brings you to the dedicated movie room. It would be all blacked out and look like a theater. Can watch movies from your pc.

                                    • Add current time to wrist watch

                                      Would be a great in-world addition to allow one to keep track of time.

                                      • Add retro arcade home environment

                                        I'd love to see an old '84 style arcade home environment complete with black lights and glow-in-the-dark carpet, arcade cabinets, skee-ball, claw crane and other retro type machines.

                                        • Open home to random users

                                          I don't know why, but I think it would be neat to let other users, not just friends, to randomly walk around your home if it were 'Open.' they couldn't touch anything or even say anything, they could just see what others had done and experience houses that others had created.
