Vivecraft started out as Minecrift by mabrowning and StellaArtois. Originally a seated VR mod for the Oculus Rift development kits, it was later ported to OpenVR by Automat-GH, who added the original implementations of teleporting and hand swinging under the name Minecrift-Vive. Currently it is being updated by jrbudda and Techjar who have added many features and improved compatibility with the Minecraft community. The project is now Vivecraft to help differentiate from the previous versions.
