RealView v1.4 Released by HST Simulations

Wednesday, June 24, 2020

The developer of RealView, HighSkyTech, has updated the plugin to version 1.4. The update is by no means insignificant however: the changelog given is extensive and detailed.

The developer notes through a post on x-plane.org's forum highlights of the update, which include a "completely new User Interface on new core, new touchdown effect, new camera shake engine with different surfaces shake support, some bug fixes and dozen of new features."

The plugin itself adds a new dimension of camera immersion, with soft and smooth camera movements in a "new generation of camera engine". In a way, it is somewhat similar to XPRealistic, though each has their own set of features of course.

The plugin can be purchased from x-plane.org for US $24.95, though is temporarily discounted to $18.95 as of time of writing.
