In a recent article we briefly covered the upcoming Somnium Space 3.0 update and what this update will mean for the advancement of the platform. In this article and in a series to follow, we will to take you through an even deeper look into what is coming.
Somnium Space shared a myriad of features that will roll out in Somnium 3.0. One of the many exciting upgrades is a totally upgraded ‘base reality’, and a revamped weather system. Base reality refers to the first level immersion, Somnium’s main topography, consisting of land, mountains and a huge lake in the middle, Deep Oasis Lake. The reason for calling this base reality, or base world, is that the Somnium land is covered with so called Somnium Worlds, which offer deeper levels of immersion developed by the Somnium community.
As part of Somnium 3.0, it is that base reality that will undergo a major update. So let’s dive in.
Larger Community Capabilities
First things first, the platform has announced a larger capacity for users, making its servers farther reaching and supporting larger audiences with virtually zero latency. With this, communities can reach larger scales.
These improvements are geared towards hosting hundreds, potentially thousands, of players in a single, persistent instance, cultivating a sense of community and shared experience on an unprecedented scale.Somnium Space
This expansion is key to keep building the Somnium Space platform for the future generations to come.
Enhanced Visual Appeal
Another development in Somnium 3.0 will be its stunning visuals. Somnium Space has reworked a number of its original attractions like City Center, the Magic Forest, and the Floating Land, just to name a few.
Along with these revamped favorites, are a world of new additions, or should we say adventures, awaiting Somnium users. There’s added details to mountains, with curvatures and caves, taking Metaverse exploration to a whole new altitude as users can explore deeper into the wild wilderness of Somnium.
Through the darkest wonders of caves, into the depths of this Metaverse platform, contemplate the wonders of life near a cascading waterfall, or follow a rushing riverbed to see where it leads. There are also complete “overhauls” in the department of aquatic environments, creating yet another point of discovery. All with intricate details and added visual appeal to create a truly immersive experience of exploration.
Imagine to go white water rafting passed various Metaverse species, or spending hours in caves digging for one-of-a-kind Somnium gemstones. Who knows what can be discovered.
Achieving a high level of visual accuracy and replicating physical-world phenomena has consistently stood as a foundational principle within the Somnium Space platform. The closer it mirrors reality, the greater the sense of immersion becomes, leading to more impactful and lasting imprints within one’s cognitive perception.
Weather System Upgrades
Another highly anticipated update is that to the weather system. In a desire to create a truly immersive and interactive experience users can expect to experience the full elements in virtual reality. Hear thunder reverberate around your headset, and lighting flash before your eyes. The senses will experience a deeper layer of virtual reality like never before. The surroundings will feel more tangible, more real. With such immersion we could spend hours wandering, getting lost in the fullness of this technological advancement.
Fogs will appear, wind patterns will vary. As we previously mentioned in the Somnium Times, Somnium Space transcends mere individual experiences and encounters, encompassing a realm for introspection, discovery, and serving as the nucleus of boundless creativity. This forthcoming update will further cement and reinforce this very concept.
The update will dazzle, as regulars and new comers alike will load into the base reality environments. And as people will come out of VR only to share their experiences with others and invite their friends along, multitudes will load into the platform, and feel the fullness of virtual reality; all in a crisp and concise manner. We are convinced that audiences will grow, and new minds will bring in new perspectives. All of these elements commune together in creating an amazing immersive environment that only Somnium Space can facilitate.
With a continuous forward thinking mentality, Somnium is bridging the gap between the present and what is to come. With their imagination and core team of innovators this platform will go far. It’s no wonder this platform is inspiring all to go deeper, and we’re merely scratching the surface of these upgrades.
