After years of development and a very successful launch, FlyJSim has issued a major update for their Q4XP addon. Although the Q4XP already received a number of small patches since the release, this is the first bigger update.
Foremost, the update comes with the initial support of virtual reality headsets and significant performance improvements. This was achieved by lowering the number of polygons on various cockpit manipulators. It was also necessary for the simulator to run smoothly on much more demanding virtual reality setups.
Although the developers have stated, that the FPS improvements after this update may vary based on the individual setups, the feedback from the community on the update is very positive.
The update also comes with multiple minor fixes. The complete changelog can be found below.
FlyJSim has also, in reaction to the community feedback, today released an amendment patch to fix, as Jackal wrote: “a few items that came up“. Perhaps, after the major update release. As part of that update, the biggest improvement would probably be improved cabin door behavior and fixed MDA and DH click spots.
You can download and install the update through the Skunkcrafts Updater. Reactivation is required. The aircraft can be purchased exclusively through the X-Plane.org Store for $79.95, or about €70.
