Thread: Oculus Rift

  1. #1

    Default Oculus Rift

    I've been waiting for something like this to use with a flight simulator for 20 years.

    Given that development of FSX is dead and abandoned. Any hope of support for this in any other decent flight sim software?

    Development of FSX is indeed abandoned.
    Development for FSX is not.
    So it is very possible that someone will write something to use this with FS.

    That would depend on how popular this becomes.

    But if the flightsimulator is open to other applications (like MSFS is) then anyone would be able to write a plugin.

    don't forget you are rendering two screens with the Occulus Rift. Anyone have $300 dollars so we can find out for sure?

    You might want to check out Prepar3d - Lockheed Martin bought the rights for FSX and is continually developing the sim under that new name. Aircraft & plugins are all forwards compatible and the SDK has been extended significantly by Lockheed Martin. I've read somewhere that they (LM) are considering implementing Oculus support.

    There's also flightgear which is completely open source. I'm sure someone is already implementing oculus support.
