Update on Vive Support

I installed the latest Unity 5.4 Beta last night which is now RC1, everything seems to be working OK. I need to re bake all the scenes and then I should be able to make a new build that has native OpenVR included.

I had a look at integrating the Lab Renderer but I couldn't get it to work properly and it requires OpenVR exclusively which isn't something I am willing to support at the expense of the Rifts ATW.

There should be some perf improvements from 5.4 Single Pass Stereo but on a min spec VR machine you're likely to average around 70+ FPS. Without the Rifts ATW I'm not yet sure how juddery this will feel.

This game will always be my first real love in VR.
Sadly the DK2 days have passed, and I have a Vive now, so my love is gone for the moment but promised to come back to me one day in an update. Looking forward to that, hopefully not so distant day in the near future...

One of THE best VR games available! If you own an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive: buy it! Try it! You like cockpit games? Piloting a spacecraft? Being deeply immersed? Flying on Moon and Mars? Missions free to choose from easy to tough? Then you won`t regret getting this game! The new CV1 support works great and there are frequent updates. Some minor bugs still available (sound crackle), but it´s still a beta VR support. It´s clearly one of my most beloved games fpr my Rift. I really enjoy visiting the moon every now and then. Looking forward to future updates. 5 STARS!

Absolute must by for anyone with a Rift and I can only imagine for the Vive when support is included. It's hard to descirbe, but for me the feeling of presence with my HOTAS in this game is so much more complete than any other VR cockpit space game I have played.

Brilliant game and a must have on the Rift.

A bit of a steep learning curve to begin with and there is no hand holding but it is worth the effort. In the first 20 mins I managed to get off the ground in to a spin before crashing in flames on the floor but after a few more tries it suddenly clicked and I started getting missions done, gaining xp and I'm just about to rank up to level 3 and earn a few new unlocks.

For a single dev this is a great game with excellent VR presence.

The new beta is sofa king good on the CV1!!!!! Performance is flawless on a GTX 970 and will be getting better soon.
Moving about requires an abundance of patience. Take it slow and tap, tap, tap-a-roo.

Lunar Flight + Oculus CV1 together is just amazing if you'r into flight sims. Heck also if you'r not.
at the price it's very simple, just buy it.

I have played this for literally 10 minutes at the time of writing this review, I downloaded it having spent 3 days with my Rift, absorbing all the experiences there are and being a bit.... well.... disappointed.... nothing was really sharp apart from a few in the Oculus store, but they were all lacking playability and immersion. I was considering sending it back, or lobbing it on E Bay and commiting to will wait until 4k or OLED HMD get put in the Rift/Vive etc before getting excited.... and then I tried this.

The work done on getting this into VR is outstanding, the cockpit is so well done, the seating position is perfect, the sounds, the lighting.... and yes in my playtime I only made 3 landings, but I will be back for a lot more..... this is "The Best Experience on the Rift" you can currently have in my view. Patience, care on the controls are needed, but it is serene, it is clear..... Absolutely blown away.... and blown up, several times...

Great work!!

To start off - if you currently have an Oculus Rift, stop reading and purchase this game right now... It's ok, I'll wait for you to do it.

Done? Good, because this game currently has the best native support for VR available right now. A perfectly realized virtual cockpit with great functionality and UI suited for VR. The sense of immersion is quite spectacular, and the game itself is also very fun.

For those without a rift, the game is quite good as well. It places you on the moon (or mars) in control of a lander type craft, in which you perform missions for experience and cash, with which you can upgrade your lander's capabilities. The lander handles as a low gravity vehicle would handle, and with practise you can pull off some very impressive manouevers. The types of missions available range from surveying certain locations, searching for misplaced or lost cargo and transportation of cargoes.

There is a multiplayer component as well, though I have to attest i haven't really played much of this mode (was having way too much fun in the single player portion of the game)

Overall, I'd heartily recommend the game to anyone with a slight interest in space exploration - and if you have a Rift this is a must purchase.

A nifty simulation of flying a lunar module. Takes a little while to get the hang of (there's some video tutorials included) but once you're flying around without any assists it's great fun.

Radio chatter and some fitting background music add atmosphere to a lunar environment that would otherwise have none (zing!). You will also have the opportunity to fly around a map on Mars where dust storms and increased gravity and drag make flying much more difficult.

Some physics knowledge is definitely a bonus. Physics nerds like myself will take pleasure in having to plan ahead, taking into account things like cargo weight, fuel efficiency, conservation of momentum and more. You will feel like you've mastered lunar flight when you line up a trajectory for the landing pad, using your RCS thrusters to reduce your transverse speed while throttling up your main thruster to keep the vector over the pad, to finish with a quick yaw at the end to line up a perfect landing.

Probably the biggest drawback to the game is the relative lack of mission variety with only three types. The environments are of course pretty barren as you'd expect so like with many flight simulators you are more occupied with what your craft is doing and how it's flying. This is where Lunar Flight really shines.

It supports TrackIR and Occulus Rift too so props to the developer!

Overall recommended!

Lunar Flight is a simple sim that allows you to fly an Apollo style lunar module around four different maps (difficulty varies between the maps) simulating the moon and mars environments. It has a steep learning curve but is extremely satisfying to master.

Initially it feels a bit like playing the classic 8 bit 'lunar lander' type games in 3D but there's more to it than that. Missions include carrying cargo between locations, gathering data from survey sites and recovering lost cargo. As you progress with missions you gain XP and are able to upgrade your ship to make it more fuel efficient and more manoeuvrable.

Multiplayer introduces combat, adding 'sidewinder' style missiles and decoy flares to the mix. Combat isn't easy; changing direction can be hard due to inertia and it's a pretty unique experience.

I am a fan of simulation games. I own about every flight and space flight simulator there is, and I must admit, this game was quite a fun experience.

First, you'll have to learn about thrust vectoring, which is about the hardest thing to learn if you don't know physics. It's very long for some people and you may get desperate and begin hating this game. But once this is done, you'll understand just how fun this game is.

You can carry out mission, such as locating lost equipment or transporting cargo. And yes, weight does affect your flight. There nothing more intense than landing on a platform with 0.3% left fuel because you underestiamted the weight of that cargo.

And there's multiplayer : Shooting other people on the moon/mars!

And the best part is : The developper (independant, as far as I know) oftens adds stuff to the game and they're awsome. When I bought the game, there were 3 maps, no multi. Since then, Mars was added, multi was added, Occulus Rift support was added and I can't wait to see what's next.

A definitive buy for any flight sim enthousiast.
