Changing settings

For a guide on how to change the settings of a 3D space/world, please refer to “How do I… → Change the settings of a space/world from Dashboard?”.

You can also access the settings of the space you’re in from the 3D environment, please refer to “How do I… → Change the settings of a space/world?

Understanding the priority order of settings

You will undoubtedly notice that some settings are present for both worlds and spaces.

That is because with worlds there is often the need to set some world-wide defaults, and then additionally customize some spaces within those worlds; the system will therefore take into account both world and space settings when loading the 3D environment.

Settings are prioritized in this order (each step overrides the steps before):

  1. “Default” world settings (i.e. settings for the world as it was created, unmodified)
  2. “Default” space settings (same as above, but for a space)
  3. “Custom” world settings (settings that were changed manually after the world was created)
  4. “Custom” space settings (same as above, but for a space).

All in one line, they are related to each other in this order (where each ⤺ means “overrides”)

World default ⤺ Space default ⤺ World custom ⤺ Space custom

You can visualize these relationships as blocks stacked on top of each other. The 3D environment “looks” at the settings from above, and so whichever value is at the top of each stack hides the ones below.

Let’s make a few examples with the following setup:

  1. A world in which only the “Private” setting has been enabled after creation, everything else is left as the default
  2. “space1” within that world in which all settings are default
  3. “space2”, also within that world, in which the “Private” setting has been manually set to “Disabled”

We then have the following scenarios:

  • For settings that are only supported for worlds (e.g. “World invites from spaces” in Basic settings), the default of the world will apply as no such setting has been changed manually in our setup:
    World default
  • When loading space1, all settings that can be set for both world and space have the space’s default, because:
    World default ⤺ Space default
  • The “Private” setting in space1 will be the world’s, because it was set manually:
    World default ⤺ Space default ⤺ World custom
  • The “Private” setting in space2 will be space2’s, because the manual setting on the space will override the manual setting on the world:
    World default ⤺ Space default ⤺ World custom ⤺ Space custom

All settings

World invites from spaces

Applies to spaces

Applies to worlds

Category

Basic

A space can be accessed on its own (“standalone”) or as part of a world. Normally, an invite sent from within a 3D space would be an invite to the space itself (i.e. standalone), as opposed to an invite to the world the user is in.

When this parameter is enabled (which is the default), an invite sent from within a 3D world will be to the world as a whole instead of the space.

Use whispers

Applies to spaces

Applies to worlds

Category

Basic

Allow users to whisper (i.e. send private messages) to each other. This setting is enabled by default, and disabling it will hide all whisper functionality in the UI of the 3D environment.

Basic

Defines whether the “gestures” UI is visible. Enabled by default, the gestures UI can be accessed by clicking or tapping on the smiley face button in the bottom UI.

Sharing

Applies to spaces

Applies to worlds

Category

Basic

Enabled by default, this setting controls whether the “Share” UI is visible when in the 3D environment. It can normally be accessed from the share button in the top right, or from the side menu.

Note that depending on whether the 3D environment is single or multi-user, this icon will change. It will be called “Add people” in multiuser (pictured above), and “Share” in single user (pictured below)

Top bar logo

Enabled by default, it controls whether video sharing is enabled (and hides its UI elements otherwise).

Enable screenshare

Applies to spaces

Applies to worlds

Category

Basic

This setting controls whether users can screenshare, and thus whether the screen-sharing UI elements are visible. Enabled by default.

Splashscreen logo

Applies to spaces

Applies to worlds

Category

Basic

By adding an image to this setting, it will appear in the loading screen when accessing a 3D space/world. It substitutes the space’s/world’s titles, which appear by default.

The image is scaled to fit the screen (it’s never cropped); in most cases it’s preferable to have 50% padding around the “main” content so that it appears in the center of the screen.

Splashscreen background

Applies to spaces

Applies to worlds

Category

Basic

 

By adding an image to this setting, it will appear as the background of the loading screen, which is otherwise based on the template used to create the space.

The image is scaled to fill the screen (which will very often result in partial cropping, unless all your users have the same device). We recommend an optimized JPEG or PNG image, 1920x968px.

Achievements – progress bar collections

Applies to spaces

Applies to worlds

Category

Basic

 

If enabled (which is the default), all collection-type tasks will appear in the achievements menu with a progress bar. For more information on creating collection tasks, see “How can I make a task only complete once a certain object has been collected?

Achievements – filter by scene

Applies to spaces

Applies to worlds

Category

Basic
