XPRealistic Pro V2 Announced
After an extended period of silence from RKApps, the developer behind SimHat and XPRealistic, has announced that the latter will see a complete rewrite.
The goal of XPRealistic is to add to the immersion felt while in-sim, with effects like realistic pilot head turning, prop enhancements and more pronounced G-Force effects. RKApps say version 2 will be a standalone plugin, meaning that FlyWithLua will no longer be required to run the utility.
In a post on the X-Plane.org Forum, head developer Roy Kro explains what is planned for the new version:
- v2.0.0 development has started and it is on its initial stages. Yes, this is a major version, the next bullet will explain why.
- I decided to write XPRealistic Pro from scratch, this time as a stand alone plugin for X-Plane, that means FWL won't be required anymore.
- The new version is built in a way that will allow XPRealistic to expand into more areas in terms of effects.
- The above means that I have lots of work to do! Please keep up your patience.
In a later comment, Roy goes on to say VR compatibility is very much being considered, though he can't guarantee it's inclusion.
