i think more people own a TrackIR than a 'Rift' at this stage :))

New lurker here.  What Darren says above is a profound understatement.  I am very confused that there is OR support for outerra but not trackir.

The problem with TrackIR is you have to buy the license from that company to support their hardware. SO... Since OT isn't really a game and the income is minimal.. supporting Free-Track, Face-Track and every other tracking format for free seems like the way to go. Until OT is ready to go live for the world and start pulling it's weight.

No it's not about having to buy the license. You just need to sign an NDA. Previous version of the NDA contained some clauses that we didn't agree with. Current one has these clauses removed, but I've read that they were just moved down into the license agreement.

We generally don't sign unnecessary and potentially risky NDAs, and thus support for TrackIR will probably only come as a third-party input plugin. Sorry but there's enough problems with the patent and legal system as it is ...

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you. ;D

I'll consider supporting outerra with my money when there is trackir support (or at least *planned* support?).  Until then, cheers!

For those interested, latest released version (0.7.17.3961) supports tracker plugins and there's an experimental trackir plugin here: http://outerraworld.com/appdata/Anteworld/tir-trackir-plugin.dll

Should go into the installation directory (where outerra.exe is) into the plugins subfolder - you'll probably have to create it.

I'm getting crashes just after launch, is there any other setting i should select for this? (I'm using trackir4 camera, with trackir5 software) Is the trackir software supposed to be running?

Thanks, earned by means of newer the file, but TrackIR  moves not in a cabin and round the vehicle. Such impression that there is not a movement by the head and camera movement. http://webfile.ru/1ddcc82d208a02d505a3c49f17c1e944
I am sorry for possible not clear places in the text, I transport by means of the electronic translator.

I understand you well enough, no worries.

This is all I can do, by means of TrackIR plugin, the rest is cameni's work.

You can reduce or disable translation (positional movement) completely if you want. Just make the curve low, so it doesn't go outta the canopy.

I have a problem. TrackIR head movement moves in the opposite direction even when using "invert" option in the software. Any ideas?

This did work like a charm for me with the latest version of OT (4459) and with the TrackIR 5.2 software!
I used the TrackIR profile from Kelvinr. His Thread can be found here: http://forum.outerra.com/index.php?topic=2476.0
