JARDesign Previews VR Compatible Ground Handling v4 Plugin

35082811 1588564044575254 7323025162163453952 O

With more and more Virtual Reality headset products hitting the market, and simulators adding native VR capabilities for added immersion, developers are starting to take VR a lot more seriously than they used to. It’s because of this that JARDesign has begun to show off previews of their upcoming Ground Handling (GHD) v4 plugin for X-Plane, which promises to be VR-friendly.

In a closed Facebook group dedicated to the development group’s products, lead designer Evgeny Romanov described the improvements to the upcoming refreshed plugin as being the group’s “first step in the VR-world”. This VR-focused update gives users the ability to “flexibly control the movement of handling cars” while also being able to resize and move the plugin window within the VR world. In addition to the VR compatibility, Evgeny says that there will be approximately 40 aircraft sets included with the product, and the plugin window has been re-designed to fit into the standard X-Plane 11 UI style.

The new features will come at some cost though, with the price tag of the plugin set to rise by around $5. There is good news for existing users, though – this update will come at no extra charge.

While Evgeny did not indicate a solid release date, he did say that JARDesign are expecting to release this new version in the very near future.
