    Flight Simulator of Microsoft is in VR now.

    This new feature will really make you feel like you are in a cockpit.

     

    The Flight Simulator by Microsoft has always made everyone feel like a pilot, but now with the technology of VR incorporated into it, one can feel like a real pilot. The free update made by Asobo Studio has allowed OpenXR-compatible headsets to be supported, which include other headsets also such as the HTC Vive, Mixed Reality headsets, Valve Index, and the Oculus Quest as well as the Oculus Rift.

     

    Before the VR technology, you could only feel like you are a part of the cockpit through a monitor and by changing your surroundings with cushions or cardboards. But that has all changed, now with Virtual Realty technology, anyone who wants to know what it would feel like to be a pilot can simply use a VR headset and play Microsoft’s Flight Simulator to feel like a real pilot. But the computer system needs to be high-end in order to run this Flight Simulator in VR. The specs that were used to run a test flight for this VR feature included an i5 processor, Ryzen 5 1500X which was complemented with GTX 1080, these specs were chosen to be the bare minimum to run the Microsoft’s Flight Simulator via Virtual Reality headsets that are listed above.

    The new update will include snow, as the winter season and Christmas are here, which is all about snow. This update will have realistic snowfall which will make the VR simulation as a pilot even more realistic. Microsoft’s Flight Simulator is going to get a huge upgrade, many things are yet to be seen such as the North Pole in the VR update. Also, for anyone who doesn’t know, if you want to go into the VR mode, the short cut for that is CTRL + Tab key. Once they are pressed, the VR mode will turn on and you can finally feel like a real pilot at the comfort of your chair.
