Hey folks!

The team is working very hard behind the scenes to bring you another update. Sadly it's still not the big 2022, but with so many new features and abilities that were made available recently that one is just too much work to get it out any time soon. But since there have been some cool new ships done and we also have some major improvements with the hooks and DDRaw to offer we wanted to make a smaller patch after all.

It's still a bit off but hopefully you'll be able to enjoy it very soon! To tide you over in the meantime a small teaser for you to enjoy:

There's also been some smaller improvements I made to the page. Little bit of an Easter-egg including some new animations I made. Head over to the Showcase page and have a look around ;)

All VR improvements are available via Beta Effects Version 2 by Blue Max's Version 2022-06-13 on the downloads page.
I don't think there has been any breakthroughs announced recently.
They will all be in this Update too.
