  • Update on mouse tablet

    Update on tablet issue – if the tablet is not responding to inputs in VR (assuming you have left mouse button assigned as input as I suspect most people would as it is the default), try clicking with a different mouse button and it should work. Have been trying to track down the addon causing the issue (no success as I have too many addons!) and accidentally discovered that I could select items on the tablet in VR using opposite (i.e., right) mouse button.

    Hope this helps (and anyone who is experiencing this issue in VR).

    Thanks for the update. Especially like the improved ground handling. Has anyone else experienced engine suddenly cutting out and surging alternately? I seem to be experiencing it when climbing or under engine load above say, 30 MP. Might be just under load at altitudes above 10k though. Haven’t investigated more than one flight which was in cold conditions ~11°C.
