FSKneeboard v1.0.0 released

Dear VR Enthusiasts! I hope you guys are doing great.

Being a VFR (and VR) enthusiast I was somewhat sick navigating with the MSFS vanilla-VFR map in VR (let’s be honest, it’s not even close to a real-life-VFR-map), and a second screen, an iPad or even a physical kneeboard isn’t an option either when wearing a VR headset, right!?

Hence I decided to sit down and create a little mod called “VFR Maps For VR” that does exactly what I want.

Please note: I made it for my personal use and I’m happy with what it does for now, but I thought I might share it with you guys as well… Hopefully you’ll like it, maybe you won’t. Your feedback is highly appreciated either way!Β It’s my first mod and I just published it the other day, so be kind, anyways πŸ™‚

The mod allows me to have a (imho) high-quality map that I can use to visually navigate (even with nav data like airspace etc.) all in my VR-cockpit. I can even turn off my own airplane position for a “manual” paper-map-on-kneeboard-experience πŸ™‚

Please let me know what you think about it and what you would like to see improved. If you are a developer yourself and would like to contribute: PRs are welcome!

You can download the mod here: https://github.com/Christian1984/vfrmap-for-vr/releases

Cheers from Germany,

and always three greens,

Chris
