    Thanks for the heads up.

    Looks like it's time for me to upgrade to the Horizons Season Pass

    I also noticed that there has been an update to the plugin today as well, but I'm not sure how to update using the new offset file.
    v3.3

    Oh well, there's a first time for everything!

    EDIT : I've just read the fine print, LOL!!!!

    2- Open Plugin zip folder (this download) and copy EliteDangerous64_Offsets.xml to the following location:

    The Crew 2 is free to play on Steam from now thru Sunday, plus is also on sale for 67% off if you decide to buy it.

    This is pretty cool considering that they've just added a Destruction Derby mode, should be fun for the cars at least (boats, & planes don't have telemetry output at the moment & most likely never will).

    It's also a great opportunity to test the SimTools plugin with zero risk.

    Plugin located here:
    https://www.xsimulator.net/community/marketplace/the-crew-2-plugin.214/


    Since the Wreckfest plugin no longer works (and I don't have the smarts to do the update myself) The Crew 2's destruction derby mode should be a nice alternative. :)

    Not motion-enabled, nor a racing/flight title, but this one may be of interest to VR users, or those who enjoy mystery games.


    The stand-out title here is the lone VR one called "The Invisible Hours", which is part of this 10 games bundle offered by Fanatical(the other 9 are just gravy).


    The bundle is valued at 98% off the retail value, here in Canada that worked out to $3.99 CAD for the entire bundle.
    The offer is valid for roughly 11 more days.

    https://www.fanatical.com/en/bundle/undercover-bundle

    Fanatical will display what the equivalent cost is in your particular country, but it should scale appropriately.
    For those who are out of the loop, years ago Fanatical used to be known as Bundle Stars, and are 100% legit.


    For reference, "The Invisible Hours" alone sells for $39.99 CAD on Steam...Ouch!!!

    I bought it and received my Steam keys immediately, and there were no issues redeeming them on Steam.
