2D panels in 4.4 VR

Recommended Posts

Just getting into VR with my new Rift and wondering if I should be able to be able to see 2D pop ups (like the default GPS or ATC) inside the HMD?

Did some searching and thought I saw that it should work but I’m not having any luck..

They work just fine. Here’s the link to the SDK so you can see how to manipulate them when you eventually get one open.



You can move them with SHIFT-mouse and resize them with CTRL-SHIFT-mouse and there is another option too can't remember. It is written somewhere in the official P3D help guides. Unfortunately they don't remember their positions when the plane is reloaded.

Awesome, thanks, I found the below in the P3D help 

Instrument Panels

If an Instrument Panel is opened before entering Virtual Reality, it will be shown in the headset. An Instrument Panel can be opened by selecting the Vehicle menu item and choosing Instrument Panel. Note that not all vehicles have Instrument Panels.



  • Translate: LeftMouseDown + Shift 
  • Rotate X Axis: LeftMouseDown + Ctrl + ScrollWheel
  • Rotate Y Axis: LeftMouseDown + Ctrl + '
  • Rotate Z Axis: LeftMouseDown + Ctrl + PlusKey
  • Uniform Scale: LeftMouseDown + Shift + Ctrl
  • Resize Panel: LeftMouseDown + Shift + Tab

NOTE: The Virtual Reality cursor must be hovering over the panel to move it.
