Tacview 1.8.6 is out!
« on: April 02, 2021, 09:35:12 PM »

Tacview 1.8.6 is available Now

Download: HERE

• Release Date: Fri, 2 Apr 2021
• Operating System: Windowsฎ 32-bit / 64-bit
• File Size: 524.2 MB

As the pace of development on Tacview 2.0 increases, Tacview 1.8 is switching more and more to maintenance mode.

However, Tacview 1.8 is still a great test bed for experimenting with simplified versions of new features. As such, this update still brings cool new tools along the usual quality of life improvement and bug fixes.

For example, whenever it is supported by your flight simulator and your aircraft, you can now display the flight controls position as well as the pilot sight. Together with the optional display of aircraft course, you have now all the tools to analyze the exact behavior of the pilot and pinpoint habits to improve stick and rudder skills.

As usual, the Lua SDK has been considerably extended. For example, it is now possible to create real dialog boxes to directly interact with the user. If you are interested into creating Lua addons, feel free to share your work or ask for help on our discord channel!

BuzyBee and I would like to thank again everyone for your support and feedback!

I will now return to the Batcave to resume my work on Tacview 2 ;)
