The world design is the most significant feature of a social virtual world.

It characterizes the experience for everyone in that world. The design should be cohesive and well-organized so that it doesn't feel like a random assortment of ideas thrown together. It should also be engaging, with enough detail to make it feel real and believable.

An immersive experience should allow users to be able to explore, interact with objects, and feel emotionally connected to the world they are in. Put your focus on what matters most to the user experience. For beginners as well as more experienced users, it's crucial to create spaces that are inclusive and accessible.

Manage your expectations

It is essential to keep in mind that we are designing for VR and not for real life. Realistic displays have limitations. To provide faster frame rates, a balance between realism and low-poly 3D models has to be maintained in the world because motion sickness can cause nausea. Lower frame rates will result in a less enjoyable experience for your guests.

World optimization is the process of reducing the number of polygons, vertices, and triangles in a virtual reality world. This process is necessary to increase performance and decrease loading times. In order to reduce the number of polygons, vertices, and triangles in a VR world there are three main steps:

  1. Reducing the complexity of objects in your scene by simplifying their shape or eliminating them altogether

  2. Reducing the number of materials used

  3. Decreasing texture size.

In addition to designing captivating and awe-inspiring worlds, I also design for optimization. As opposed to other designers, I am fully committed to optimizing your world since I create all the assets myself. It creates a comfortable atmosphere where people can socialize and make new friends. It would be my pleasure to design your virtual reality project, if you are willing to trust me.
