  • Wind Settings to control the wind in real-time
  • Windsocks
  • New Challenge – Cross Wind Landing
  • New Stock “Airplane” – Quadcopter
  • Tweaked the instrument panel user interface to improve the compass and add a wind heading indicator
  • XML-modding enhancements

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed bug preventing discovery of Featherfall Squall
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Mirage Speedway from showing up (or was that a joke that I didn’t get?)
  • Prevent Restart Here from working on challenges
  • Prevent AI planes from responding to player activation groups
  • Fixed a bug with drag on initially disconnected parts
  • Fixed a bug with tournament validation of part scale=”1,1,1″
