Could I make a LAN based project for VR? (Quest 3)

Title. I want to make a VR Multiplayer project with ~16 people connected simultaneously on the same net. Should I be able to do that using Normcore?
Solution:
dang it really failed that one. LAN is not supported with Normcore unfortunately. We do have LAN options on Normcore Private for enterprise customers.

Hi @Kromm. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Yes, you can use Normcore for your VR multiplayer project. Normcore is a networking plugin and hosting service that can scale to millions of users, keeping the state of all clients in a room synchronized so they feel like they are part of the same space. It's a perfect fit for everything from mobile games to MMORPGs, from XR applications to productivity tools. Whether you are supporting 1v1 games or matches with 100+ players, Normcore has you covered [^1^]. However, the number of players you can fit in a single room can vary based on how much bandwidth your application uses. VR applications typically use 10 times more bandwidth than a typical FPS or racing game. For extreme cases—such as VR apps with 16+ players—there are still options: you can split large spaces across multiple Normcore rooms, or you can use Normcore Private, which supports 40x higher CPU + bandwidth limits per room [^7^]. Remember to upgrade to Normcore 2 if you're currently working with Normcore 1, as it has improved significantly in terms of transform syncing, voice chat, and overall latency [^2^].

@Normcore Assistant what about a LAN project, does Normcore have the ability to do that?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Normcore is designed to provide a seamless multiplayer networking experience, with features like smooth transform syncing, efficient serialization, congestion control, and support for networks that block UDP. It also automatically scales servers to support millions of users [^1^]. However, the documentation provided does not specifically mention support for Local Area Network (LAN) based projects. Normcore primarily focuses on providing a robust and scalable online multiplayer experience. For more specific information or inquiries about LAN support, you may want to reach out to the Normcore team directly or check their detailed documentation [^5^].
