If the World Instance scraper and the “World has been Updated” tag are working, this would be a pretty good boon. Else, the current underlaying systems makes it hard to know when worlds have more instances and if a creator has updated a world. Example: I recently updated a world that finally said I did on 5/17. I’ve updated it 5 other times since the previous notification that I had an update which was 4/23. Almost a month later.
As noted in the video and blog, US-only for now. This is due to regulatory limitations.
We’re trying our best to work on this as fast as we can, it’s a huge pain.
Don’t know what “world instance scraper” is but the Recently Updated bug is being worked on. Very deep, systemic bug that’s tied to systems that haven’t been worked on in quite a while, so it’s taking a bit to work it out.
The “World Instance” tab does not update at all. Once you see the instances, it doesn’t make a call to the server to get a new list (scrape), you’re stuck with about 8 or so instances you can poke at until you restart VRChat and get a new list.
Without a fix, continued use of the friend location screen in the social menu will eventually result in complete performance destruction, making it impossible to use. The only workaround right now is to potentially screw up your Windows install by editing the registry.
I did this about two weeks ago. I had to do it again today because opening and scrolling this menu dropped me from like 35fps to 5fps.
Please, PLEASE fix this. Don’t make users choose between potentially messing up their Windows install or simply not being able to use VRChat.
Any plans to fight people who straight up gonna create ripper groups to sell other people’s works?
If there was money involved, they gonna be even more problem than before.
They already heavy impact publics, forcing any avatar creator simply don’t use their favourite avatars on them.
Exact details will come later, but we’re working with an external payment processor. Don’t have answers for you beyond that.
As the video and blog point out, more robust avatar systems will come later, but we feel your pain.
We’re going to be 100% transparent with cuts and distribution, but we’re not sharing numbers just yet. Our goal is to allow creators to earn as much as possible.
To start, it’s closer to a subscription system to support creators. More details later on.
For a bit of context, the reason we have taken so long to do this is because we are painfully aware of what people do and don’t like about existing creator economies. We’ve played those games and apps too, and we have… opinions.
We wanted to create a system that serves supporters and creators as much as it helps keep VRChat alive and afloat. We’ve gotten a good bit of the way there, but now we’re ready to have people start poking at it and help us figure out how to build it best.
I’m making assumptions here, but VRChat follows the process referred to as “DMCA”, as required by law. We’ll also take other action within our rights and capabilities as necessary, as we always have.
Problem is people do it all the time with the creator’s cries ignored. For years. Most have given up fighting to get their property back. The team needs to get tighter and better protection systems in place. EAC won’t stop model ripping at all.
