Summary

Please do remember to check our Roadmaps as a lot of questions here are partially covered there. Do continue to ask them but the roadmaps are there for you to read:

Questions

Xekri: Did I hear something about 2FA being enabled for the wiki, or do we still have to use that /webLogin workaround?

  • You'll have to use the /webLogin command if you have 2FA enabled. I apologize, we'll review this as soon as possible.

darkysabertooth: will there be a way in the future to be able to file a report on a user in game, also will there soon be away to be able to block a user/hide a user so you do not hear or see them in a session?

  • After double checking, we have an issue for in-game issue reporting here

Xekri: Are you recovered sufficiently from MMC to make more tutorials? I didn't realize how much I miss them.

  • I'm still quite busy but trying to work on tutorials when I can.

Beaned: is there or will there be a tutorial on how to use videos properly with subtitles in neos?

  • Yup its on the list.

GunGryphon: Have MMC prizes been distributed yet?

  • Yes for the most part. If you have issues post in the mmc-2021 channel or ping Medra directly.

darkysabertooth: im also wondering how neos is going with steam removing games that are involved with crypto.

Jam10o: Facebook is going full metaverse (and I'd imagine buying everything they can get their hands on) meanwhile all the crypto-native projects are turning into an interoperable borg. Neos doesn't seem like it's going to go in either direction, where does it fit in the future?

  • I'm beginning to hate the term Metaverse its very overloaded by the industry and the news. I have no real answer here. We're just trying to follow our own goals and vision for what we want Neos to be. That might not align to your/the news' definition of a metaverse or even facebook's.

Deretto: What's the reason for a private(unlisted) session that is shown as contacts/contacts+ not being joinable by me (a contact) from the friends list?

  • Those sessions can be viewed as "Invite+" from other platforms
  • If you don't have an invite we actually don't have a way to get you into there without an invite.
  • its a feature not a bug or an issue.

Xekri: What's Registered Users Only for world permissions? How does that differ from Private or Contacts Only?

  • This world permission only allows users who have a Neos account to join the session.
  • You can play Neos without an account :)!

TheSpecterLemon: Why does Neos require users to login every time you launch the game? Or at least every 7 days with the "remember me" feature

  • This is a security feature that aligns to our current security goals and policies.
  • If you'd like to see this changed please open a GitHub issue
  • Do remember that this limit is rolling. As I play Neos everyday I've never had to log in for multiple months now.

Jam10o: okay let me narrow the super broad question a little bit - if you (not asking you to speak for the team unless you want to) had to pick between a hypothetical interconnected vr universe being primarily advertisement-funded and free-looking, or marketplace based and funded with fees or something, what would you pick?

  • Our primary goal for monetization is the market place right now.
  • We do source revenue from other sources and you can read about these on the wiki.
  • Advertisements are probably never going to happen. You're in control. It is your worlds, your sessions etc.

GunGryphon: Is Neos hard locked to 60FPS max?

  • Nope

Rucio: I noticed that headless servers have abilities to permit users with a cloud variable. Haven't explored this myself but how does that feature work for non-hidden sessions? Ie, does Neos filter active sessions based on having this cloud variable?

  • There's two ways to do this right now with headless cloud variables and both of these still show up in the session list afaik.
  • In some cases there are messages sourced from other cloud variables that will tell you why you cannot join.

ToyDragon (clarjon1): any Cool Techy Bits you're looking forwards to integrate with Neos that aren't behind a NDA/embargo?

  • Nothing I'm working on is private.
  • I'm really excited by everything on the roadmap.

Bitman: Know if there has been Any progress on the OAuth System?

  • Its on the list, along with everything else its a prioritzation issue where so many things are trying to be worked on. We're working as fast as we can.

Electronus: what if we have a github issue that we haven't gotten any response to? For example a tweak request.

  • Make sure there's as much information on the issue as you can. Add logs, screenshots etc.
  • Make sure to also thumbs up the issue or use your priority patreon vote to help thumbs up this issue.
  • We're working on things as fast as we can.
