UI Assist (UIA) is a plugin that enhances the usability of VAM – primarily targeted at easier and rapid content consumption. It provides an alternative configurable User Interface (UI) to access common VAM features and additional extra functions. Currently users principally interact with VAM content using the very extensive and complex VAM UI screens and menus. Whilst comprehensive, there are a lot of options, history and complexities that can make navigation slow. UI Assist offers an alternative experience:


UI Assist allows the user to define the function of each button on the custom UI and then reuse that setup in any scene. Because UIAssist is a Session plugin it automatically persists between scene loads. The UI is accessible via a watch (i.e. clock) on the user’s VR wrist that can be clicked to reveal a menu of buttons. The action for each button can be targeted at the Atom last gazed at by the user. Options allow the UI to be used one handed and/or detached from the wrist.

There are two variants of the plugin with the majority of features in the free version and advanced features in the Patrons version:

Each button’s action can be configured to target a range of “atoms” (i.e. objects in VAM). This includes the atom of a particular type that was last looked at by the user (e.g. the last female or male looked at) and groups of atoms.
Buttons can be configured to load VAM Presets (new and legacy preset types). Options allow merge loading of presets and to always use the latest VARs (when a preset is packaged in a VAR).

The best plugin for VR. I added a button to possess and one to clear possess, and I now barely use Edit mode in VR
A very much needed enhancement. Thank you so much. Any chance we can have the ability to turn atoms on and off?
great. a must have plugin ! thanks.
Like other said, this is must-have-game-changer! Especially integration with Decal Maker, I only have a question: will "normal" textures be supported, just like "decal"? This both types often come together, like spankings or bra-lines.
UIAssist is a game changer plugin!
Great plugin. I finally gave it a whirl and wish I tried it sooner. Only request...I see it supports a lot of preset types, but doesn't for Plugin presets. Will that be added later? Or am I somehow missing it?

Oh yeah. I cant believe I missed that one! I'll definitely add it soon.

A must have plugin
A game changer. The trap is to setup too much things. Setup only your favorite preset, and it will give you the best.
I use it on all my scenes, ( paid version )
JJ I just started using the plugin as a Patron. I am very impressed and have just started to expand my menu for additional features. I have been working with VAM under a creator License for just under 8 months, and the UIAssit is has made it so much easier to manipulate and modify the creations of the Patrons I subscribe to for content with the looks and features I want to use for the content for my personal use. I have set up a studio room whee i can quickly take any model and thrum the use of your UI apply the presets of my choice in less then 5 or 6 clicks. Such a huge time saver. Please keep the new ideas coming, the tools you have created provide a path for higher productivity, and all of us can use a bit more time in or daily lives. Thanks again!
