Door Key in Virtual Environments: Interactive Object Unlocking

Table of contents

What is a Door Key?

The Door Key is a unique interactive feature in virtual environments designed for adding a layer of engagement and puzzle-solving. This component enables avatars to unlock doors using a special key, providing a more immersive experience. By equipping the “Door Key” component to Object A, avatars can obtain the key upon contact, and then use it to open a door represented by Object B, which disappears as the door is “opened.”

How to Use the Door Key

Implementing the Door Key Feature

  1. Select Assets from the Left Panel: Begin by choosing two assets from the left panel. These will represent the key and the door (See attached images 1 (a) and (b)).
  2. Place Selected Assets on Terrain: Position these selected assets appropriately on the terrain (Refer to attached images 2 (a) and (b)).
  3. Access the Component List on the Right Panel: Once the assets are selected on the terrain, a component list will appear on the right panel for further configuration (See attached image ③).

4. Choose the Door Key Component: From the right panel, select the Door Key component.

5. Set the Key for Object A: Select Object A (the key) and configure the key settings.

6. Enter the Key Value: Input the Key value, which can be alphanumeric or a special key. This is done by clicking on the (+) icon and selecting from the dropdown menu.

7. Configure Object B (the Door): Select Object B and set the “same value” for the door from the dropdown menu that was used for the Key.

8. Test the Door Key Setup: Click on the test button in the upper right corner of the screen to verify the functionality of the Door Key in a test play.

9. Avatar Obtains the Key: When the Avatar interacts with Object A (trigger activated), the object will disappear, symbolizing that the Avatar has obtained the Key.

10. Avatar Uses the Key on Object B: When the Avatar interacts with Object B, which has the same key value (trigger activated), Object B disappears, indicating the door has been opened.

The Door Key feature adds a fascinating puzzle-solving element to virtual environments, perfect for games and simulations where unlocking mechanisms are integral to the gameplay. It not only enhances the interactive experience but also stimulates problem-solving skills.
