Just wanted to share a thing I’m working on. Basically creating a virtual tour of the campus of the non profit I work for using Unreal Engine’s Pixel Streaming Feature. It’s pretty cool that it’s mobile friendly.
You can use the joystick in the bottom corners to control the character movement and camera using your smart phone. You’ll notice you can currently just walk through the structures (all of which were made on SketchUp and imported into Unreal via the Datasmith Plugin). This is because the physics/collisions functions aren’t automatically created.
The processing of the project is all happening on an Amazon Virtual Server, which we get a $2k credit annual non-profit grant/credit to use. Basically any non profit can pay $175 to get $2k of AWS credits per year. We did it to try this out, but will likely be looking to some of the Google VM opportunities coming up.
Anyways, here’s the link. Right now there’s only a single playable game, so if you use it and it feels like a ghost is operating the controls that because someone else is also trying to play it.

Here’s a screenshot of the game:
Still figuring this all out as I go. I gotta say that the online SketchUp community is a million times more helpful and engaged than any of the other platforms I’ve been trying. Can’t say enough good things about SU. I wish I could do everything from it and not bother with the other platforms.
I have another version of this “game” that’s much further along, but I haven’t uploaded it to the public server yet. When I get a little further with it I will update this link. If anyone is curious about any part of this process, please feel free to ask questions!
