SDK Update


Three months after the launch of the DevSupport platform, we wouldlike to thank you for all your posts (already 400 of them!). We aredoing our best to provide answers to each topic, even though some ofthe topics require a lot of time to investigate, discuss, etc. Butthis platform is also meant for you as a community so please feel freeto provide your own answers and solutions if you encounter somethingyou can provide insight into!

Dev Mode

We're preparing a new pop-up to display important information whenyou launch the game with the DevMode enabled. This will allow us tocommunicate more efficiency when a major change is coming.

We also fixed the missing content info thumbnail on our simpleaircraft sample.

Aircraft Editor

We fixed the corruption that could occur within CFG files whensaving your project.

We are also working on a refactoring of the CFG file parsing, sincethe way the editor currently works, it removes all comments and addsspaces, additional zeros, etc.

We fixed a crash that could occur when reloading the current aircraft after changing its contact points.
