Weather and ice effects VR?

For now, we need to wait until 11.3 is out of beta.  After that, it depends how complex the new update is and what it's done to the TBM systems.  We'll need to address those first, before moving on to the rain and ice in VR

Ok, thanks for a quick answer :)

Neither Saso nor myself have VR, so we can't tell you for sure.  Set icing conditions, stream it and see.  I'll be watching.  Joe from SimVR Labs made us a VR compatible cockpit object, while I make an official one.

These effects dont work in VR!

1.windscreen Rain\ice

2.Broken Windscreen

3.Heatblurs of engine

4.Ice on wings

 

I highly recomend that the developers buy a vr headset to help adress this issues :)

I can`t understand how top-tier developers can`t afford VR glasses. It costs less than 200 Euros nowadays. :(

https://www.harveynorman.com.au/htc-vive-virtual-reality-kit-consumer-edition-version-2-coal-black.html

$939 AU dollars.

To support a small but vocal fraction of the market.

Then there's the issue of the hardware you own to run it. Buying a headset does NOT magically upgrade your PC.

This isn't AAA games dev where we make $250 million dollars on launch weekend.

 

I have a VIVE, I paid some $700 for it. My hardware is barely capable of utilising it. (970M GPU, Laptop.) 

It is mostly unusued and is currently boxed because life circumstance dictates that I don't have the space to set it up.

Thankfully I have a laptop so I can remain productive even with limited space.

 

Everything is a trade off.

Thanks to the developers for this amazing plane!

Now that XP11.30 is out of beta would it be possible to implement these very desirable features-ice and rain effects in VR-for me this would add so much more to an already great product

Bumping this topic back up so it's not forgotten. It's such a superb aircraft, for me in VR all it's missing now are the rain and ice effects.

They look superb non-vr, but us VR flyers can't go back to monitors! :)

They'll get to it, be patient :D
