It’s been awhile since we last heard anything about VRChat and its community. The social VR app has been one of the most popular platforms in virtual reality where people can dress up in a plethora of avatars and become whoever you want.

VRChat got especially popular after the the Ugandan Knuckles meme came to life on the platform. But ever since then, we haven’t heard much about the community and what’s been happening on the social VR app.

But it seems as though VRChat is still being used by a large community as we see popular YouTubers such as Zylbrad making original content on the platform.

We’re also seeing the increase in unique characters such as Bowsette who provides some fun and entertainment in the virtual world. Check out the video with Ryan Powell below.

Community members are continuously creating more avatars and maps for everyone to explore. The devs have also been continuously making improvements on VRChat with the most update 2018.3.2p1 fixing the full-body tracking error.

Fixes

  • Fixed an issue which caused full-body tracking not to initialize properly, preventing it from working locally or remotely
  • Fixed an issue causing strange stretching/bending when crouching in desktop and looking up/down
  • Fixed an issue causing other users’ camera indicators not to appear when they have been spawned
  • Fixed an issue causing stations (seats), portals, onTimer triggers, and various other components not to work properly in some cases

VRChat is still free for everyone to use and continues to be a light for the virtual reality community when it comes to popularity.

  1. Being able to play as ANYONE is an absolute delight! Very few games offer this possibility. And there are so many worlds to discover! A lot of them are actual games you can play with others, so VRChat can eventually serve as a game engine. Someone is even trying to recreate the Sword Art Online MMORPG in this game.

    VRChat is definitely the future of VR. Just like Rec Room, it offers so much freedom that you could spend hundreds of hours on it and still be scratching its surface. It’s not a game : it’s a whole virtual world. For real.
    My only complaint on VRChat is the ergonomics. For now, VRChat is chaotic: although it did improve, the worlds and avatars features are still very unpractical.
    For example, the Avatar Worlds: the concept is fine, but what if we want to save an avatar we discover in one of those? We can’t. So if I want to load an avatar I discovered days/weeks ago, I have to go back to the world where I found it, or look for it on the web to download it and import it manually. I just wish there was a more user-friendly method. I do know how to import models, I even do mine, but I don’t want to have to run Blender then Unity then VRChat just to get a character in a game.

    Aside from that, this app is fantastic. Definitely a real-life Oasis (for those who saw RP1).

    1. you have the abillity to save avatars as a favourite, maybe that was added in the last week, I have no idea. but it seems it has been around for a bit.

      1. Even avatars from other people (i.e those you find in avatar worlds)? Well thank you, I never noticed that! That alone makes the avatar system far better to use ^^.
