Multiplayer

Vivecraft players can join any Minecraft server running the same base version. You can play with others whether or not they use Vivecraft. If you are looking for a server to play on check out the Server Listings page.

NonVR Companion

A special version of Vivecraft is available for normal desktop play. This lightly modified version adds optifine and support for VR player animation. If you regularly play with muggles non VR folks they can use this to see your movements. Requires a 1.11+ server running Vivecraft Spigot Extensions (below)

LAN Games

Vivecraft can be used for LAN multiplayer by using the ‘Open to LAN’ button on the menu as with normal Minecraft. However some minor bugs may be present and VR animation is not supported. Using a dedicated server with a Vivecraft plugin is the recommend way to play with others. This only takes a few minutes to set up and can be run from any PC on your LAN.

Vivecraft Server Plugins

It is strongly recommended that server owners install a Vivecraft plugin, otherwise the following limitations apply:

  • Teleporting may not be allowed. Vivecraft will notify you if you turn on Teleport mode and the server has not indicated it is running a Vivecraft Server Plugin. Attempting to teleport in this case will result in ‘rubberbanding’ back to your original location.
  • Arrows and Projectiles will spawn at your face, not controller. Aim accordingly.
  • Arrows will do normal damage.
  • The direction your player model looks will vary depending on activity and does not follow the HMD direction.
  • Endermen aggro will use the pointing direction and not the look direction

Vanilla Servers

If you join a server not running a Vivecraft Server Plugin, arc teleporting will attempt to use a /tp command to move the player. You can thus allow teleporting by giving the Vive player the appropriate Op level or permission. This may generate a large number of teleport messages in the chat. These can be disabled with
