When supporting VR?

Postby javipamp » Sun Apr 11, 2021 9:51 am

I tried to flight in VR and now I can't go back to a monitor. It is such experience that once you know it, it's another different world. I would be very interested in trying this simulator and support it but I think that it doesn't have VR. Are there any plans to support VR in the near future? Many thanks.

In some ways it is almost there already, you can split up the view into a stereo view and you can drive the view from for example a head tracker. It is not entirely unlikely that you could drive some VR goggles from FlightGear, though it might require some software to convert the protocols if those are complicated.
