Today, I will introduce you a easy way to create VR contents that I want to recommend to those that are afraid they are not good at art.
What we are going to do is, to use free 3D models and STYLY, and create a VR scene.
First, let’s find and download free nice 3D models from a site called “BLEND SWAP”.
BLEND SWAP is a site that was made to share 3D models created by the 3D modelling software Blender.
You will probably be surprised by the quality of the models in the site.
We can even use these models by free, so there is no reason not to.
In this tutorial, I am going to create a StarWars sky battle scene in STYLY, with the help of BLEND SWAP.

You can try out the sample scene at the STYLY GALLERY.
Downloading a 3D Model
First, sign up for a member at BLEND SWAP, and download a 3D model.
“X-Wing” by benjob
“Tie Fighter” by benjob
“Vader Tie Fighter” by benjob
Let’s download a skyscape with stars too.
“Starry Sky” by Francesco Ungaro
Importing to Unity
The .blend file you downloaded is accessible from [My Models & Upload].
Upload a BLEND file from the STYLY editor
I uploaded all three models.
All files imported
Building up the scene
Next, I will explain the steps I took to create the scene.
Change the Skybox to Dark
Change Ground to Off
Place the x-wing model
Add the Tie Fighter model
Place the Vader Tie Fighter so that you can see the cockpit
Add pink ball from Poly
Place the pink ball as after fires
Add concrete ground texture from Poly
Place concrete ground texture as a wall
Open the upload window for images
Upload a skyscape image
Choose to import using the original aspects
Place the sky image so that the player can see it on his or her front
The cockpit is a bit poor in details, but that is it for this article.
Trying to create a VR scene from scratch is very hard if you have not decided on what you want to create.
But if you first try to create a scene from your favorite movie or manga, it’s not that hard, and is very fun!
I hope you try out creating your favourite scene with STYLY!
