Hello friends once again on July the 4th. Today is the 6th anniversary of the Vivecraft website, which means it qualifies for kindergarten this fall.
We’ve been busy in the past couple weeks. Doubtless you are aware that Minecraft 1.19 has dropped, and we will begin work on that version soon. In the meantime, we’ve been chipping away at Forge mod compatibility on 1.18.2.
1.18.2 Mod Support
The update is almost ready for release but if you’d like to help move it along or try it out now, you can grab a beta copy in the #testing channel of the Vivecraft discord. One neato new feature of the Forge-compatible version is Vivecraft can now be loaded by placing the mod jar into the /mods folder of your instance or modpack. There is a new button in the installer to help with this.
We’re waiting on Optifine to stabilize before proceeding but I don’t expect much trouble from this version, should be pretty quick and come out of the gate with Forge compatibility. It might also have limited support for OVR to avoid the need for SteamVR. The Quest 2 is by far the most popular VR headset nowadays, and I now own one myself to make testing easier. Keep an eye here for the release or hop into the discord to follow along.
