Calibrating your height in VR

When using Sansar with a VR headset, you should make sure to calibrate your height. Height calibration affects the elevation of you your first-person point of view, and plays a role in scaling how your avatar is animated when you move your arms, legs, and head.

Entering your height manually

You can set your height manually while in VR:

  1. Open the main menu on your left wrist by pressing Y on your Oculus Rift controller or Left Menu on your HTC Vive controller.
  2. Using your opposite hand, select Set height from the main menu.
  3. Use your VR controller to activate the up and down arrows until your correct height is displayed.
  4. Click Ok to confirm your height.

Select Set height from the main menu. Use the up and down arrows to set your height, then click Ok.

Detecting your height automatically

Sansar can estimate your height automatically by measuring the length of your arms:

  1. Open the main menu on your left wrist by pressing Y on your Oculus Rift controller or Left Menu on your HTC Vive controller.
  2. Using your opposite hand, select Set height from the main menu.
  3. Choose Detect.
  4. Extend your arms outward, then hold any button on your VR controller until calibration completes.
  5. Click Ok to confirm your height.

Choose Set height from the main menu, then choose Detect. Fully extend your arms, then hold any button on your VR controller until calibration completes.

Height calibration settings

There are some Sansar settings that affect height calibration:

  • Remember height - Remembers your height between sessions so you don't need to calibrate every time you log in.
  • Show height in meters - Shows height in meters rather than the default feet and inches.

    Hey Jeremy, this is all well and good, but have you seen that WMR controllers are not being recognized in Sansar VR?  Since very recently, it won't see the controllers even though they work fine in WMR and in SteamVR, before or after Sansar running.  Any thoughts or tips?
