Selecting a Starting Configuration in VRC Virtual Skills

To begin your VRC Virtual Skills Match, you must choose the starting position, starting angle, and any Preload Rings on Moby, this year's Hero Bot, with the starting configuration window.


This article will cover:

Selecting a Starting Position


When you first launch VRC Virtual Skills and enter your team's Virtual Skills Key, you will be prompted to select your starting configuration.

Choose your desired Starting Position (A, B, C, or D) by selecting the letter on the Field.

Selecting a Starting Angle


Choose your desired starting angle, by selecting the matching arrow on the Field. 

Selecting Preload Rings


The Preload selections are shown in the “Choose Preloads” section of the starting position window.


Select the number of Preload Rings (up to three) to place on Moby’s left and right Forks.

Note: Moby can hold up to two Rings on each Fork. When two Rings are selected for one Fork, you will only have the option to select 0 Rings or 1 Ring on the other Fork.


The Ring locations will show on the image of the robot in the starting position window.


Select ‘Confirm’ to save your selected starting configuration for Moby.

Changing the Starting Configuration


To change the starting configuration, select the location icon in the Virtual Skills Window.


Then the starting configuration window will open.
