SimControlX – v1.3.2 update

🕔 July 20, 2020

We’ve just rolled out an update (version 1.3.2) for the SimControlX app and SimControlX Server. This update is recommended for all users.

All existing users should look out for an update on their iPad app, and then use the installer from this website to install/update their server application and simulator plugins. Please make sure you update both the iPad app and the server application/plugins on your computer, before you try to use the app. Updating one but not the other, may lead to breakages. The latest details on the install process and app usage can be found in our manual. The SimControlX Server installer may be downloaded from our downloads page. The iPad app can be installed/updated from the App Store.

With this update, we’re adding a convenience feature for our SimControlX Pro users to reposition the aircraft directly from the map page. Pro version users can long press on a map location during flight and confirm to move the aircraft to that location. The aircraft will move to the new location maintaining approximately the same MSL altitude and heading and some nominal airspeed. Airspeed, altitude and heading can be adjusted individually as per usual after repositioning completes, to ensure you’re in stable flight. Scenery reloading may occur occasionally based on the sim in question.

  • Added in-air repositioning from map page (Pro users only).
  • Other minor bug fixes and enhancements.
