Hello everyone! After releasing Venezia for rift, we prepared to launch a playable version of an architecture visualization interactive project. Modern Country House is an elaborated project with a lot of furniture, realistic lightning and interactions. You can change floor material, cabinet’s colors, furniture, etc. Also you can turn on/off a fireplace. Imagine if you could see, walk, interact and choose the furniture style of your house before buy or build it? This is exactly what Modern Country House is!
We recommend to run in a normal PC with a high-end graphic card. It’s possible to run it on Oculus Rift (just hit CTRL+ENTER or ALT+ENTER) but it’s not optimized for it. To play with Oculus Rift we recommend the use of a Joystick.
There is a main menu with Graphic Options, Resume and Quit. So, you can set low graphics to run better in mid-range graphic cards.
Here is the commands list:
Control character with WASD keyboard keys or analog joystick controls
All the interactions are made when the objects are highlighted.
Press Right mouse button to open User Interface for change colors/materials/assets.
Press Right mouse button to turn on/off fire.
Press “M” to menu.
Press Face Button Left, Face Button Top and Face Button Right to chage colors/materials/assets.
Press Face Button Left to turn on fire
Press Face Button Bottom to turn off fire
OBS: To change the floor material you need to look down.
You can buy the editable project here.

I would love to purchase this project, but what is holding me back is that the overlays don’t seem to work with the DK2 at all. I’m mostly interested in Archviz in VR. Do you have any plans on making the UI menus work in a VR environment? Would be an immediate purchase for me if that was resolved.
Hi Brent, so, the demo works with Joysticks and the controls are mapped to use Occulus Rift using only Joystick controls (without UI). Just press Square, triangle and circle (Playstation controller) to change colors, materials, etc. In the future maybe there will be a version with 3D GUI.
One more thing.. perhaps it might be a good idea to provide a separate rift build and include the modified .ini files from the modded Paris DK2 demo’s settings (medium graphics settings) the modified .ini’s can be found here http://www.mediafire.com/download/oqmyit54n31i420/DK2Paris.zip and just place the contents of Medium-Good-Graphics folder into:
Looks a lot better and less blurry, give it a shot.
Brent, we’ve not optimized the project for VR yet. But the Venezia for Rift is optimized for Rift. Regards!
Thanks for providing this, looks fantastic and nice features!
It would be fantastic if you could release a versioner that was optimized for the DK2.
Hi Joakim, thanks for the feedback! I’ll set a roadmap for this. Regards
hello bro am new to ue4 just 2 weeks i ve learned alot but how i can move like reak human inside interior project and export it in avi video ??? how pls tell or tutorial
Hi Dodo, use the First Person Game template in Unreal Engine. To create videos you can use the matinee https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/spa/Engine/Matinee/index.html. Regards
A tutorial for this kind of thing would be great! I’d pay to learn how to create something like this.
I would like to ask if it is possible to make such kind of projects to use with the Samsung Gear Vr headset instead of making it computer-based for the Oculus?
Hi Mustafa, it’s possible to do it but to run it on a smartphone you need to optimize the scene, use low polly models, etc and with this you will loose graphics quality / photorealism. Regards!
Great scene !
I ran it in DK2.
It would be great if there was control over frame rate.
All video settings on DK2 stutter when panning for me, but are silky smooth on my monitor.
Also, the viewer height seems a little high.
Two small improvement that would make this really standout on the DK2.
Thank you for sharing ! It has definitely made me interested in buying one of your scenes.
A tutorial in how you construct, texture and light Unreal scenes would be great too.
Hello. I work in Archviz too. I feel a bit too lost here. The application to create this kind of scenes is Unreal Engine 4?
Is it Windows 7 compatible?
Can I run an interactive presentation in my PC monitor?
This webpage doesn’t give a lot of info.
Thanks in advance.
Hi Salvador, yes it is UE4 (Unreal Engine 4). It’s compatible with Windows 7 and Mac OS. You can see more info here: https://www.unrealengine.com.
Unreal Engine can generate an executable files to run in PC Monitor, Oculus VR, Smartphones, etc.
We bought this project. There is a graphic that is over layed over all the camera and working viewports.
I am an Unreal noob and can’t figure out how to turn it off.
Hello Micheal, can you send a screenshot of the graphic on email@example.com? Regards!
Does this support ios and android ?
If yes, I will buy it immediately. Thanks
How to enter full screen mode?.
