Highly configurable cockpits for VR flight nerds
The Daily Roundup is our comprehensive coverage of the VR industry wrapped up into one daily email, delivered directly to your inbox. 

Tinker Pilot has been in the works for a few years now, aiming to deliver a PC VR simulator experience that lets players build their own sci-fi cockpit and outfit it with 1:1 digital counterparts of things like HOTAS flight sticks, pedals, joysticks and more. Now you can get a taste of the highly configurable flight sim in its new paid alpha.

Project creator Lluís Garcia Lamora is currently funding Tinker Pilot through Patreon. For now it seems the game’s focus is weighed heavily on the cockpit’s modularity and flight characteristics, which ought to appeal to the sort of player who wants to focus on the flying aspect of the game and finetuning their own setups.
Outside of creating your own flight setup, which also lets you import models and rig them so they match your own unique equipment, Tinker Pilot also lets you take full control of where you put things like information screens, holographic buttons, custom panels, communication holograms. Cockpits can also be filled with things like decorative pictures, special furniture and more.

As for gameplay mechanics, here’s what Garcia Lamora says:
“The gameplay in Tinker Pilot is meant to be diverse and challenging, but above all is meant to be fun. You will be able to play different game modes that will require the use of the many systems of your ship and the environment itself, where the proximity to terrain, stations, ships, and other objects gives a greater sense of movement and speed.”
Garcia Lamora released a video showing off some of the game’s combat, although we’re hoping to hear more about gameplay as the project makes headway so users can really put those detailed cockpits to good use.

Tinker Pilot’s Patreon includes tiers ranging from $4.50 per month to $89, all of which get you immediate access to the latest alpha build, something Garcia Lamora says will be regularly updated as he makes progress towards release.
It’s not clear when Tinker Pilot is releasing for the PC VR-owning masses, however Garcia Lamora says a contribution through Tinker Pilot’s Patreon for $30 or more will get a copy of the final game when it releases.

Looks like loaded generic map into Unreal Engine and some basic flight. Sorry, but this is not what VR should be about. Looks infantile and boring after 1 minute. Just an honest opinion.
It’s pretty rough, but the dev is getting $200/month through Patreon and it’s really too little… he should get at least $50K to make some decent application
My honest opinion is that he was able to create something really cool by himself. I’m a developer myself and I know how hard it is to get to this point. Even “basic flight” mechanics are hard to develop.
I absolutely disagree that this looks infantile and boring after 1 minute, but at this stage it is unfair to compare it with any big project.
I’d really appreciate if you could be more VRFriendlier with indie developers. I don’t know what you think VR should be about, but I think its a shame you took the time to depreciate someone who is clearly doing his best.
It’s “just his honest opinion” though (which implies it represents absolute truth rather than being an infantile perspective).
It’s ironic he calls himself “VRFriend”.
I’m able to produce 85 US bucks every hour to work part time from the comfort of home.~ou167~I’ve not ever thought that it can even possible but my top mate was receiving $25,000 only within five weeks just completing this super task & she convinced me to avail.~ou115~Discover fresh info by going this website.

VRFriend is not LoserFriend. Spot the difference.
1:1 user customizable controls mapped to hardware is no small feat.
Was this worth the article? I checked both videos and it looks pretty basic..
Absolutely! It’s amazing to see articles that supports small indie teams and even more lone developers. Its hard to understand how hard it is go get even to this basic stage and an article like these can really generate a lot of attention to an otherwise stealth project.
I hope the dev can get the funds to continue on this amazing project! We all have a lot to benefit from it!
Keep it up, Lluís!
You are joking now. Template loaded into UE and basic flowgraph. Not worth time of people reading about it.
Thanks for your expert opinion flappy. I’m sure after reading your detailed insights and perspective people will adopt your view of things and start shit-posting alongside you.
My opinion had short explanation. Yours is only an insult.
