Tutorial Example


Launching the Destinations Workshop Tools on a 2D Monitor without VR

This forum post illustrates how to extract a Windows Run Command that will launch the Destinations Workshop Tools on a given (pre-created) project (addon)…

"D:\Programs\Steam\steamapps\common\Destinations\game\bin\win64\steamtours.exe" -tools -destinations_workshop

Select your destination scene (addon) when the Asset Browser tool opens.



On 28th July 2016, valve announced that Destinations would work with multiple players and friends lists in the same environment and able to communicate via voice. So this offers a basis for “OpenVCE” and “I-Room” style destinations for group collaboration and operations centres.
