In this study we compare two conditions of visual detail — modern graphics and detail reduction through cel-shading — in experiencing Cybersickness during virtual movement along a preprogrammed path within a scene depicting a real-world outdoor museum viewed with Oculus CV1. The Cybersickness experience was quantified with the Fast-Motion-Sickness (FMS) scale and the Simulator Sickness Questionnaire (SSQ). We found weak evidence for realistic graphics being more sickness-inducing. Also, FMS scores peaked whenever a participant was entering a building.
