The new version 0.5.0.0 update includes a completely overhauled VR interaction system, according to the developer, “Nearly every switch in every cockpit can be manipulated using your controllers. The new system makes it easy to grab the lever or switch you want without accidentally bumping others. Improved haptics mean you can feel when you come into contact with a lever, and you’ll know when you pass every transition in a tiny three-way switch. A new virtual yoke system makes it just as easy to fly an airplane with a VR controller as it was with a physical joystick, and you can fly helicopters this way too.” Moreover, the update includes several minor bug fixes relating to VR controllers as well as a revamped user interface.
In addition to VR improvements, the update features a brand new helicopter model and solidified autogen trees + houses.
