QuestCraft – A port of Minecraft: Java Edition to the Meta Quest Platform. With the power of PojavLauncher
What is QuestCraft? An Introduction
QuestCraft is a new mod for Minecraft Java that enables VR compatibility for Minecraft Java. QuestCraft’s unveiling was accompanied by a clip showcasing the mod in action, which was released earlier this week. You can enable full head tracking in Minecraft and modify UI elements like menus to function in VR, such as allowing you to move items around in a pop-up inventory window. Touch controls are also possible, although only to a limited extent. Although you may move your arms about, it looks that the majority of interactions are button-based.
QuestCraft, which acts as a ‘wrapper’ that launches Minecraft on your quest, requires an existing version of Minecraft Java. It’s now in beta, and the performance isn’t fantastic. This is because Minecraft is a really badly optimized game”.
The quick answer to why you’d want a slightly janky VR mod for Minecraft Java instead of the official Minecraft VR app is because Minecraft Java allows a large selection of mods that are either not supported at all by the Bedrock edition or must be purchased separately. If all you want to do in VR is play vanilla Minecraft, the official app is the way to go. However, if you have your own Java-based Minecraft server with a number of mods, or simply don’t want to buy Minecraft again, QuestCraft lets you enter that world and gaze at it in stereoscopic 3D.
Minecraft Virtual Reality has been around for a long time. It’s a Bedrock Edition exclusive, which is unfortunate for Java Edition gamers, but it’s still one of the greatest ways to play the game.
Fortunately, most things are possible through mods for those same Java users. These aren’t Mojang-approved or official, but they let gamers perform a lot of things that Bedrock players can’t.
The QuestCraft mod, for example, allows players to experiment with virtual reality in Minecraft Java Edition.
The beta version of QuestCraft is still in the works. While gamers can take advantage of it now and check it out, it is still a long way from the polished, full product that will be accessible in the future.
This means that there will probably be bugs, problems, and other issues from time to time. Because the Java Edition is the least optimized version of the game, it may be difficult to support VR technology.
For this to work, gamers will need a Quest 2. The goal is that the game will be available in a more official manner by the time Quest 3 is released.
