Metaverse Construction Kit (Steam VR)
Intro: The Metaverse Construction Kit is a virtual environment to construct your own 3D creations. Use the twenty-four structural elements to define your structures and then style your creations with sixty-four material types like organics, metals, minerals, and composites. Then Publish!
Review: The Metaverse Construction Kit is a VR sandbox that allows you to construct your very own 3D creations all made and viewed in VR. If you can dream it up, you can make it. It allows you to build pretty much anything you can think of using and of the 24 structural elements. You can make your creations in any style you wish with 64 material types like organics, metals, minerals, and composites. Then when you’re happy with your creations you can publish them to a workshop for others to improve them or use them.
While the lack of a tutorial is not great after a while of simply playing around I was able to build things that I never really thought possible. OK, so it was only a basic 3D castle, but to me it was amazing. If I can achieve that in such a short space of time I would imagine someone who is getting into 3D design will be able to make just about anything they wished.
Verdict: It’s creative, east to use and it’s free, what more do you need? OK, so it is a little basic and does lack a good tutorial to help you along, but it mostly does all you need it to do and it does more than many paid 3D creation tools that do much the same job. Certainly not perfect, but for creators just starting out in 3D design & creation, this will be the perfect starting program before committing to more expensive ones.
