I threw a crazy live rave in the metaverse using TheWaveVR:

I threw an impromptu, unscheduled party and quite a few people came out! I had a blast and ended up playing for about 2 hours straight!

The set featured all songs available to spin inside TheWaveVR currently by anyone, all are featured from the ‘Funky Way’ playlist.

Special thanks to DJ EVOL♥, I stole a few of his great props!

In TheWaveVR you can design your own virtual dance club and use the visual effects sliders to make the effects dance to the music. (some of them do this automatically)

A lot of the art I put in my scenes comes from poly.google.com. Anything flagged as ‘remixable’ on there can be imported into these virtual club scenes.

Club Amethyst, my VR nightclub is back online and better than before!

Club Amethyst is my hand-crafted virtual night club for the metaverse!

It took a lot to get here, but the club is pretty stable now. It has been flagged public and is currently in the community spotlight on VRChat.

The club features over 2 hours of high energy dance music, spatial sound, and a large quiet area for socializing.

There is a side room with screens crediting the artists who contributed to this project including:

3D Art: EVOL

2D GIF Art: Psyklon

(4/1/18) NEW IN THIS BUILD

– Brand new wall textures

– Better lighting near the dance floor

– Re-colored a few things, colors ‘pop’ a bit more now

– Added some 3D wall art to the silent lounge.

– You can now ‘jump into’ the DeLorean.

(I’m not great with adding click-to-sit to objects, yet…)

I like the idea of featuring just one or two digital artists in my clubs so each one feels uniquely themed musically and visually, let me know what you think so far!

Club Amethyst is my hand-crafted virtual night club for the metaverse! 

It took a lot to get here, but the club is very stable now. 

It has been flagged public and is currently in the community spotlight on VRChat! The club features over 2 hours of high energy dance music. 

3.16.18 was the un-expected grand opening and I saw several dozen players enjoying the club concurrently at one point. 

 NEW IN THIS BUILD: 
– Jumping has been enabled! Let’s get crazy on the dancefloor! 
– The music should now get quieter as you get further away from the speakers. 
– New art has been added to the music-free lounge down the hallway on the left as you enter. 

There is a side room with credits to the artists who contributed to this project including 3D Art: EVOL & 2D GIF Art: Psyklon 

What’s next? I’ll probably add more polish to Club Amethyst? Better structural textures, maybe more seat-able surfaces and interactive objects. I’m also working on different themed clubs, I’m thinking electro-swing, Monstercat label, or 90’s dance hits or something?

Club Trancendia [Live Streamed Tour] (VRChat)

Had a great time last night touring The Architect’s new world in Club Trancendia!

Perhaps I’ll make a highlight reel from this later this weekend!

TheWaveVR’s scene building system is AMAZING! 

You can import anything from poly.google.com, like audio-reactive tilt-brush art. 

The built-in particle emitters and graphic tunnels can be interacted with live so you can make the effects dance to the music! 

Then you can hold your own party and anyone on the platform can join you. 

Welcome to the future!

User-driven raves with live DJ/VJ tools and customizable set design using poly/tiltbrush art? Very impressive, I’m smitten.

I couldn’t stay long but EVOL put on an amazing show in TheWaveVR last night!

Highlights from last night’s show: (4:20)

Most of the models and visual effects were designed by EVOL as well! Anyone with the right hardware can download the app for free and make their own set designs (with TiltBrush or Google Poly) and host their own raves! EVOL is just a community member with a lot of talent!

Supermedium launches its virtual reality web browser 

The team at Supermedium wants to build a VR browser that fully lives up to the promises they see in WebVR, a platform that can take you from a link to a fully immersive world in seconds. They’re more focused on creating a ground-up solution that is built to accommodate 3D content first with the eventual goal of creating a web where you can hop in between 3D experiences without ever leaving them.

I used free software and collaborated with artists to create my own nightclub in the metaverse

This first nightclub features tracks that personally make me want to get up and dance. There are 20 songs on the tracklist currently and I welcome suggestions for more to add. Preferably ones with youTube videos that look good playing in the club.

When you get inside VRChat, look through the new worlds section for ‘Club G-Dub’.
FYI: You don’t need VR to check out the club in VRChat.

I had to take out a lot of particle effects in order for this to run on VRChat servers but I tried to make up for that with some lasers and polish. Here is what it looked like before optimizations:

I’m interested in creating other nightclubs with specific themes like 90’s dance or all D&B or feature a certain artist or record label (with their permission)

Let me know what you all think and if you have any suggestions for more nightclubs or themes!
