NPC Avatars?

Hello,

My client and I are building a project that intends on using OVR avatars as veritable NPC's. My question is: is it possible to use several oculus accounts—each with their own customized avatar—in game(unity3d)? Is such a practice possible? Otherwise, is it possible to request a customized aka generate new avatars in the OVRSDK via some sort of constructor(i.e. material=32, hair=10, face=3, etc)?

Thanks for any recommendations.

    I'd also be interested in hearing about some options regarding this kind of setup, besides using dummy accounts

    Hi,

    Welcome to the Oculus Developer Forums.

    I am asking the Avatars team for more information about the possibility of this on the platform. I will update this thread when I have more information to share.

    I spoke with the Avatars team, and while there isn't any documentation, samples, or guides on how to achieve this, they stated that you can make multiple accounts, configure avatars, then instantiate them in game and drive their update functions as needed.

    Yes. That's the way we are currently doing it, but it is tedious and we have no way of ensuring the accounts won't be deleted in the future from non-use or migration. A constructor would be excellent, but ycagwyw. I appreciate the investigation.
