After much bug fixing, X-Plane 11.20 beta 4 is out – here are the fixes. This beta fixes Linux performance, a few material rendering bugs for custom aircraft, and a bunch of X-Plane SDK bugs for VR.
We have a new WED 1.7.0 release candidate – hopefully the third time’s a charm!
And…we have docs on the vrconfig.txt file format. The VR config file is used to add VR-specific data to an aircraft, including:
- Hot spots for seats (E.g. where does the pilot sit).
- Extra data for manipulators.
- Parameters for the yoke in VR.
Please do not ship your add-ons based on 11.20 VR tech – wait for us to go final. All file formats are subject to change during beta!
We are reaching the end of beta, for both WED and X-Plane. We’ll see, based on incoming bugs, whether we need a beta 5 before RC; hopefully WED 1.7.0r3 is a keeper.
