NVIDIA Releases Mod Editor for VR Funhouse in Epic Games Launcher

By Dana Cowley

Calling all VR developers! NVIDIA and Epic Games announce the release of free mod tools for NVIDIA’s Unreal Engine 4-powered VR Funhouse. With the launch of the VR Funhouse Mod Kit, NVIDIA’s innovative carnival game for HTC Vive now supports mods, giving you an incredible sandbox of possibilities to extend the VR Funhouse experience.

VR Funhouse is available for free on Steam, and the VR Funhouse Mod Kit is available now inside the Epic Games launcher in the Modding tab. Watch the new VR Funhouse Official Mods Trailer:

NVIDIA has created a few mods of their own using VR Funhouse’s new modding features: You can now swap out your shooting gallery pistol for a Tommy Gun, light the whack-a-mole’s hair on fire, or build your favorite carnival mini-game in VR. To download community-built mods, visit the VR Funhouse Steam Workshop page.

In addition to using the binary mod editor available through Epic’s launcher, you can also access the VR Funhouse source code on GitHub and build your own games with the powerful NVIDIA GameWorks, PhysX, and VRWorks technology integrated into Unreal Engine 4 and VR Funhouse.

But wait, there's more! In a few hours on Twitch we're taking a deeper look at the VR Funhouse Mod Kit, with NVIDIA's Dane Johnston, Executive Producer for VR Funhouse. Join us at 11AM PT / 2PM PT / 7PM BST on twitch.tv/unrealengine, where Chance Ivey (@iveytron) and Alexander Paschall (@UnrealAlexander) will ask Dane all about the mod editor and then reveal our August #ue4jam winners. If you miss the broadcast, don't worry, we'll post it to youtube.com/unrealengine.
