Play space Room set up




I have done a massive room set up, mapped my entire first floor of my house. I played first encounters no problem. For Drop Dead the cabin I have done the boundary turn off work around no problem. However, my issue is my play space setup randomly changes. Sometimes on Quest restart. The problems ranges from identified objects like tables, doors and windows will just show in random places in my place space not where I saved them. Sometimes the lidar scanned version of my room changes causing random polygons to show up. Other times entire walls move or disappear. There appears to be no real rhyme or reason. I’m assuming when I boot my quest up it using the Lidar to scan the room and make sure I’m in my guardian. But guardian shouldn’t affect the place space because guardian gets turned off during place space use. Help!  I have had to remap my first floor 4 times now. It will work once or twice then gets totally wonky and I have to rescan and set up which takes 30+ min since I’m doing my entire first floor.

Hey @Optimuspdx! Making sure you're able to enjoy your VR experience to the fullest is a top priority for us, so we'd be glad to lend a hand! We don't recommend mapping an entire floor to set up your play space, as it cannot work properly. We would highly suggest only mapping a room you choose to play in to have the best experience possible!
