Take a guided journey through the amazing TRAPPIST-1 star system, known to be the home of 7 Earth-size exoplanets orbiting a star that is only a little larger than Jupiter. This experience is based on the best current scientific understanding of what these worlds could be like given their sizes, densities, and proximity to their star.

This experience was developed by the Communications and Education group at Caltech/IPAC and has been released in conjunction with the 15th anniversary of NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope mission. Spitzer, along with a number of other observatories on Earth and in Space, has contributed to our understanding of the TRAPPIST-1 system. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory manages the Spitzer Space Telescope mission for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. Science operations are conducted at the Spitzer Science Center at Caltech.

They are on my radar, but I figured I had done enough for today, and also wanted to see if the thread got a good or bad reception.

We have seen a few of them posted in the general VR thread, but that one is a monster.
I like your idea to have a thread with only the free stuff for everyone to enjoy. :slight_smile:

Welcome to this special free edition of Project CARS, featuring a select group of Pagani vehicles and three locations to drive them at.

‘Project CARS – Pagani Edition’ Features the Pagani Huayra, Huayra BC, Zonda Cinque, Zonda R, and Zonda Revolucion, and three intricately modeled tracks — the Nürburgring and Nordschleife combo, Monza GP, and Azure Coast — along with two game modes, and full VR support on both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, as well as support for 4K screens and traditional displays.

Talking of free VR car racing reminded me, Live for Speed has a nice VR mode and the base is free to play, with single player against AI or MP:

It’s been years since I played it, but the performance and feel in VR was great. I’ll try to check it out later to see if the VR support is still there or not (I think it is on a quick peek in their forum).

Step aboard the USS Orville (ECV-197), the Planetary Union’s finest mid-level exploratory class cruiser. With every room on every deck recreated with painstaking accuracy you are free to explore the weirdest ship in the fleet at your leisure, either alone or with friends in multiplayer.

Current Features:

  • Freely explore the ship in both first and third person.

  • Sit at the helm and take the ship for a spin. Why not try and see if you too can “hug the donkey”?

  • Jump into multiplayer with a few friends. Pick up a longbow and test out your marksmanship. See who can hold the bridge the longest!

  • Character customisation. Be who you want to be! (WIP additional races and species are currently in development).

  • Randomly synthesise a few nick-knacks at any of the ship’s matter synthesizers. Pick them up and place them freely. Why not give Bortus and Clyden’s quarters a quick spruce up?

  • Take in the breathtaking views out of the Mess Hall windows of the Planetary Union Dockyard in Earth orbit.

  • Send the ship into disarray with a variety of different alert modes, each changing the ambience throughout the ship. Find the one that best suits your mood. Or perhaps you’ve just got the urge to party like a Moclan?

  • Completely original score with undertones and themes from the show by the legendary Patrick Phillips.

  • Multiplayer in-game text-based chat. All in aid of the great Orville community spirit.

  • Wander down to the Shuttle Bay and take a shuttle out for a joyride.
