SDK Update


  • We're still focusing our efforts on improving the new Visual Effects system performance. The corresponding editor has now reached its first basic functional version.
  • On the Scenery Editor side, the heightmaps edition is now ready and will be available in a future update. Object grouping feature is still WIP.
  • New assets creation system from within the Project Editor is still a work in progress.
  • As a background task, the DevMode team is always working on improving the overall stability of the DevMode, with particular focus on the Project Editor, the Scenery Editor, and the Aircraft Editor. The community’s feedback continues to be helpful to identifying and fixing bugs and thus making the tools better.


  • We are making an effort to lower the iteration time when developing for the platform.
  • New security mechanisms have been implemented and others are being studied to protect WASM modules developed by third parties.
