SimplePlanes VR - Coming 2021 to Steam and Oculus Quest

Dev AndrewGarrison  4 months ago

What is even better than flying an airplane in SimplePlanes? How about flying an airplane with screens strapped to your eyeballs? SimplePlanes VR is coming this year to Steam and Oculus Quest. Wishlist it today on Steam and join our mailing list so you'll be the first to know when it's released.

Watch the announcement trailer here.

We're also working on a big update for the original SimplePlanes that will include some awesome new parts and new features to make it easier to make fully immersive cockpits with fewer parts. Some players are already building amazing cockpits, so I'm really excited to see what you will come up with when you get access to the new parts. We'll post more about that next week.

Here's a small FAQ that I will continue to update to help answer some of your questions:

What is SimplePlanes VR?

SimplePlanes VR will be a new, standalone game with full VR support and redesigned user interfaces where you can download airplanes from SimplePlanes.com and fly them. If an aircraft has a virtual cockpit, then you will be able to reach out and grab the virtual controls with your hands. If it doesn't have a virtual cockpit, then you will still be able to fly it in first or third person camera views using your VR rig's physical controllers. If you are playing on PC, then you can also use a joystick connected to your PC.

How much will it cost?

$9.99 USD on Steam and Oculus Quest.

Can you build airplanes in SimplePlanes VR?

No, SimplePlanes VR will not have a building mode. All crafts are built in the original SimplePlanes on desktop and mobile.

Why don't you release it as DLC on Steam?

If we released it as DLC, then it would be more expensive for new players since they would need to buy SP in addition to SPVR. Some players might only be interested in the virtual reality experience.

When are you going to release it?

We're not sure yet, but sometime this year or I'll eat more black licorice.

    @BeastHunter Get the 128 but I would recommend buying a Halo Strap off amazon because the one that the Quest 2 includes is awful.

    @AndrewGarrison I just have 2 questions,
    Will VR support older aircraft on the SP website
    And will the cockpits be normal cockpits just simulated differently or real cockpits like the one on the fuselage slicing post?

    @BeastHunter Get the 128 version, with the starter pack as the default headstrap is terrible. You'll be able to play it either on the headset or with pc, although the performance of the quest 2 isn't the greatest compared to mid range PCs, let alone high end. Bear in mind that you need a facebook account to use the headset

    @AndrewGarrisson @WPN78 @HellFireKoder I'm looking into getting a headset for SPVR, but I have a few questions. Is Oculus Quest 2 128 or 256 GB better for SPVR? And do I need just the headset or the starter pack as well. And will I be able to run this on just the headset or do I also need a computer? Please answer these questions as soon as possible, as I want to make a decision soon.

    (This is a joke, the Oculus go does not have the power to even perceive simpleplanes)

    I have a suggestion: add configurable "Grab Boxes" so that VR players can grab certain parts of a plane, like a custom prop/object or control lever
