About This Version

Version 1.6, 11/30/2016 –

Upgrading? We’ve made some great updates - but you will no longer be able to view previous LIVE files after upgrading to the new version.

If that’s okay, go ahead and update. Otherwise, you can continue using the current version and update your app later. The choice is yours.

  • Enhanced VR experience:
    • Starting with this version, you can now use the Oculus touch controllers (natively) instead of the Xbox controller, without the SteamVR plugin. The VR experience has been further improved by the addition of features such as an interactive Minimap and a comfort platform to reduce discomfort when exploring tall buildings at a great height (acrophobia).
  • Automatic Lighting:
    • In version 1.1, we introduced spotlight import and support of light intensity and color. Now, LIVE 1.6 includes a setting to turn lights on automatically at night, but you can turn them on or off manually.
