This article goes over the Settings area, accessible through the main menu of VTOL VR. It contains configuration options only available outside of flight. These do not duplicate the options found in the MFCD's Settings pages.


Game Tab[]

  • Interactable Tooltips: "Show names of interactable objects when hovering over them." Displays a Tooltip over the player's hand when hovering over an interactive control in their cockpit. On/Off.
  • Tree Collisions: "Player vehicle can collide with trees." On/Off.
  • Unit Icons: "Show team-colored icons on units." Provides a passive HUD overlay, highlighting nearby allied Units with blue markers and enemies with orange ones. On/Off.
  • Tailhook Physics: "Arrestor hook will collide with [the] surface, bouncing and skipping slightly. Increased difficulty." On/Off.
  • Body Physics: "Pilot body is affected by g-forces. Nausea risk." On/Off.
  • Persistent S-Cam: "Start each mission with the spectator camera enabled, if it was enabled on the previous flight." On/Off.

Controls Tab[]

Video Settings[]

  • Hide FPV Helmet: "Don't show the pilot helmet from first person view." Makes the player's pilot mask invisible in first-person view so that it doesn't obstruct their view. On/Off.

  • Limit FPS: "Limit game framerate to the refresh rate of the VR device." On/Off.
