HST Simulations Updates RealView Next to Version 1.01

April 10, 2021


HST Simulations has updated their RealView plugin to bring new features to the camera plugin, the update brings the plugin up to version 1.01. New features brought with the update include new UI hints, smooth camera transitions and diagnostic windows.

HST Simulation released the new “Next” version of the plugin on the first of March and teased this new update in late March.

HST Simulations is behind many utility plugins for X-Plane, such as their water tweaking plugin “Ultimate Water Enhancement”. HST also has their own weather rendering plugin, xAmbience. The plugin is due to receive a new version in the near future bringing many new features such as volumetric clouds and atmosphere. This new update will be free for existing users but will see a price increase for the plugin for new users.

HST also recently teased a new unnamed aircraft project in the first of their Weakly Recaps. The community quickly identified the project as a form of Bombardier Challenger, although no further comment has still been given by the dev group.
