Sansar Release Notes for June 5, 2017



  • Audio updates - We’ve made some changes to improve audio support and added a new workflow for spatialized 3D audio in Sansar!
    • Audio Emitter Editing - Now you can easily change an audio point emitter to a box or sphere volumetric emitter (also known as an "audio volume") from a dropdown menu, so the sound covers a larger area. We've also improved the usability of resizing these extents, and fixed a bug where Audio Preview didn't affect volumetric emitters.
    • Audio UI - Easier-to-understand scaling for audio emitter loudness sliders.
    • Inventory preview - Right-click a sound in inventory and choose "Play" to preview it.
  • Voice chat - Microphone is default disabled in desktop mode, and default enabled in VR mode.
  • Avatar Customization - Now you can undo/redo as you customize your avatar!
  • Scripting - With the updated APIs, you now have access to new 3D math libraries!


  • New designs - We’ve made a few minor design changes on the website.
    • We’ve revamped the Experience Details Page for a sleeker look for your Experiences!
    • The item details page has also been redesigned for a cleaner page for your item listings!

Additional notes

  • Check our API Documentation for the latest changes and additions to our scripting API. 
  • Along with the new updates on the Scripting API, the example scripts that we previously provided on the knowledge base, store, and client have been updated. Please revisit Example Scripts in Sansar to download updated copies of the scripts.
  • The example scripts, Follow the Path and Random Movement, that were previously shared on the store will be redistributed under Sansar Studios later today. Please make sure to update your copies of the scripts by downloading it for free from Sansar Studios on the Store or from their documentation article pages
