BREAKING: Somnium WORLDs are Live

Yesterday Artur Sychov, founder and CEO of Somnium Space, announced that the alpha version of Somnium Space WORLDs is now fully integrated and live. This means that if you own a Somnium WORLD NFT, that you can upload it through the Somnium SDK.

This is a major milestone as with Somnium WORLDs, users can create customized immersive experiences and place portals to those on the parcels that they own. With Somnium WORLDs you can immerse yourself in VR in Somnium Space and then go even further down the rabbit hole and effortlessly enter another virtual space, offering another unique, immersive experience.

See the following screenshots of these level 2 immersive experiences (some refer to them as dreams within a dream, inspired by the movie “Inception”).

Somnium Space offers an immersive depth and richness that is unparalleled. So many people have shaped the world via their creations and made it come to life by hosting and participating in a multitude of events. Now, with Somnium WORLDs, Somnium Space facilitates a form of open-ended creativity that without doubt will lead to yet another creative explosion.

One can only begin to imagine what the creative community will create and deploy and how they will help shape the future, help shape Somnium Space and the Metaverse. A future that is multi-layered, a reality of parallel virtual experiences.

How to get started

It is beyond the scope of this article to give a step by step explanation, but all custom, user created content must be prepared and uploaded via Unity with the Somnium Space Unity SDK installed. So first of all, make sure to follow the Somnium Space UnitySDK guide which you can find on the website.

The SDK is available via this link: https://somniumspace.com/files/SomniumSpaceSDK.unitypackage

With the latest SDK (0.3.3) you can do the following: 

  • You can use your own models, textures, and animations.
  • You can create your own animations in Unity using Animator & Animation.
  • You can use all standard Unity components
  • You can use Unity Bolt plugin: assetstore.unity.com/packages/tools/visual-scripting/bolt-163802 which allows you to do unlimited variations of scripted mechanics and advanced experiences.
  • Also, you can set on scene interactive elements from our own SDK such as Sitting & Doors. Amount of these elements will be constantly expanded, and new abilities will be added.
  • Currently, avatars, voice and positions are synchronized across Somnium WORLDs. In the near future Somnium will be adding abilities to synchronize objects and other components.
