Preload the URL

If you want to have a 360 photo preloaded, you can pass the url parameter:

wss://mres.altvr.com/skybox?url=https://cdn-content-ingress.altvr.com/uploads/skybox/three_sixty_image/1827850119676952715/IMG_1990.JPG

If the app or Event or World is reset, the app will load this photo.

Anti-Trolling / Security

By default, only users with special roles like “host” or “moderator” will be able to see and use the controls (e.g. load a new photo). If you want to allow anyone to do so, you can pass the moderator parameter:

wss://mres.altvr.com/skybox?moderator=false

Scales

By default, users will see a sphere the size of a beach ball. If you want something bigger, you can pass the scale parameter:

wss://mres.altvr.com/skybox?scale=medium

There are three scales: small (default)medium, and largeMedium scale can fit a small group inside. However, to get the best experience, you’ll want to stay near the center to minimize distortions. I recommend using a Teleport Button so that people can teleport directly to the center of the sphere.

Large scale is so big it covers the sky. (Tip: use a Template with a transparent ground plane like Cool Sky). You can also set scale to a number like 4 or 100. For all the latest options and examples for using them, visit the app’s website, linked below.
