This is a brief video and tutorial on building your first VR experience in the Decentraland VR platform and getting you started with the tools, a-minus syntax. By the end of this tutorial you will have an area of land with a Lambo on it you can walk around. Publishing the land to the Ethereum blockchain will come in a later video.

Sorry for the fan noise, the client seemed to have killed my CPU 🙂

First you need to install node from either:

I am currently using version 8.9.1

Then you need to install the Decentraland CLI tool. The tool is documented at https://cli.decentraland.org/ but is installed with the command

 

I ran in to a bug where the first time I ran the install command it failed to install. When I ran it for a second time it installed fine.

Now create your decentraland directory, I’m calling mine rus-demo

 

Now run dcl init inside the directory you just made

 

Download the lambo files from

https://nofile.io/f/TZr8JXFfHCc/avent.zip

Extract the models and put them in the models folder

Open the scene.xml in your favourite text editor, replace the contents with the following a-minus code to display an object.

 

Save the scene.

Run dcl start.

 

Drive your lambo to the moon.

The Decentraland marketplace has now been launched at https://market.decentraland.org/

Hi, I'm Rus and after 10 years of Linux administration and software development, in September 2014 I quit my day job, sold all my stuff and moved to Thailand to live the good life. My new website, http://www.ruspow.com shows how I'm making money online as well as what life can be like when you're not sat behind a desk and are free to make your own decisions!
