Update 1.2.2 adds track guides to Liftoff, helping both new players and veterans to better learn new tracks. These guides are optional and can be turned off in the game options. Track guides are automatically generated on both official and custom tracks and are generated based on your position and speed at the previous gate. This means each guide line is personalised for you during each flight session. Nonetheless, these track guides are not perfect race lines, they should be considered as direction suggestions,
Windows 10 Controller issues
Due to a recent Windows 10 update that affects drivers of USB devices, some remotes may fail to be recognised in Liftoff (and other simulators). Since this is an issue outside of the Liftoff code there's not a definitive fix we can provide, although we are exploring workarounds and talking to our hardware partners who might be able to provide a more definitive fix.
For now, there's a workaround that seems to work for most people who experience issues. This document details a few steps you can take to get things working again: Windows 10 - Reinstall Remote USB Driver
Liftoff update rate
With more than a 120 updates to date, Liftoff has enjoyed a rich update history. Fans might have noticed our update cycle has slowed down a bit lately. Luckily that's not a sign of development slowing down, on the contrary. The team has been hard at work on something really big behind the scenes. 2020 is surely going to be one of the biggest years for Liftoff to date and we can't wait to tell you what we have worked on in secret for over a year now. Stay tuned for more.
While our work on this secret project is ongoing, our love for Liftoff has not dropped. We continue to work on your typical Liftoff updates, 1.2.2 being one of them, but more to come in the near future.
Thank you for your continuous support, it's you that make all of this possible!
