There are three types of navigation modes. These commands can be accessed from the default navigation sub menu.

For more detailed explanations on how to use them, please refer to the Navigation commands page.


Fly navigation is the freest navigation mode. In this mode, the user isn't attached to the ground and doesn't collide with objects.


Walk navigation attaches the user to the ground and makes them collide with objects. This navigation mode improves user immersion in the simulation.


Teleport navigation is useful for users having trouble with motion sickness.
