Messages in VR

Notification from Vatsim Client in MSFS 2020 not able to delete/respond by mouseclick in cockpit while in VR mode. It works in 2D mode. This was no issue before SU8. So when I fly I get all the messages from the Vatsim but cannot clear them, but I need some messages from ATC and so I would need to go back to the normal Cockpit view to respond with the mouseclick. I contacted MSFS support but they sent me to 3rd party support

this is what Microsoft support is answering:

Hi Ueli,
 
The VR team confirmed that this type of notification is clickable in VR in the original sim. If this is not the case on your side, it means that your 3rdP software is sending the wrong kind of notification. Your software is sending a "standard" notification instead of a "VR" notification which is why the notification is not clickable in VR.

When flying and having software notification in the sim enabled, personal messages¬†from Vatsim ATC and messages from other Vatsim Users will be displayed in the simulator as text and you may let them disappear by mouseclick on this text. This works fine in normal 2D mode, but in VR mode it doesn‚Äėt works and the all the text messages will be displayed forever. And this makes the flying in VR mode and active Vatsim connetion allmost impossible, since you habe to cancel VR in order ¬†to get rid of the message by mouseclick in 2D mode.

Ahh, okay. So it sounds like there is some other way for apps like vPilot to send notifications for VR mode. That's very strange. The sim should just automatically use the VR mode notifications if the sim is in VR mode. Why should the external third-party app have to behave differently? Oh well.

Hello guys, 

 

Is There a plan to take vPilot inside sim environment? I mean, while in VR i can't check vPilot or vatsim map easily to check for ATC Availability, if I could take vpilot or even a simple window with the most important info (ATC and messages) it would be great.

secondly:

will this be addressed?

Of course ..... it's just strange that they have two different ways of making a notification.

Thanks for all your great software being done here in vatsim.

I don't have any plans to make a version of vPilot that runs inside the sim. It's an external application, so there may be ways to bring vPilot into VR by using a third party tool that does that.

For your second question, I don't currently plan to spend any time modifying vPilot specifically for MSFS VR needs, but it may happen at some point, can't say for sure.
