There was some interest expressed for something like this and it seemed like a fun one to add so here you go 🙂
Available from https://eggman28.itch.io/hot-air-balloons along with a few other custom versions.
Lots of 3D models for this and went with this cool one. It even has some dials / gauges in the basket (not working as we don’t know how to use the SDK for those yet).
Obviously doesn’t actually fly like a balloon but feel free to tweak the flight_model.cfg file to what works best for you and feel free to share the results if you like.
I’ve not been in one in real life but the sense of immersion I got with head tracking and Rift in the basket was quite amazing … Can’t wait for VR support 🙂
We’re also open to commission work for custom versions or logo / textures so feel free to contact us if interested.
