How Can We Assist You?
What platforms is CanopySim available on?
At the moment CanopySim is available on Oculus Rift and will become available on Steam VR on December 24, 2020.
Can I play CanopySim on Oculus Quest?
We are working on making CanopySim available natively on Oculus Quest.
However, for now you can use your Oculus Quest headset with a PC and link cable to play CanopySim via Oculus Rift or Steam VR. Here is a tutorial that explains the details.
Can you create a custom package for our Dropzone to be used for training?
Yes, we do offer custom packages for Dropzones and military for training purposes. These packages will take advantage of our custom build canopy flight physics engine, for the most realistic parachute landing simulation ever! Rates vary depending on your needs. Please contact us for a quote.
Can CanopySim replace traditional skydive training?
No. CanopySim was created as a game and as a supplemental tool for training with your Dropzone's instructors. Always follow your instructor's guidance for actual skydiving.
What is the simulated wing loading in CanopySim?
The default wing loading in CanopySim is set at about 1.3 to 1. We do plan to give the user the option to change this in the future.
How can I reset my view under canopy?
To reset your view click on your headset's operating system main menu. (For example Oculus button on Oculus headsets) You will see an option to reset view. Click that button and you will be prompted to look forward and click on the trigger button within the game. You will then be centered under the canopy!
The amount of pull sensitivity on the toggles is too much or too little. How can I adjust this?
Click on calibrate from the main menu and calibrate. CanopySim calculates the position of the controllers to interpret toggle position. Since each individual can have longer or shorter arms it is important to calibrate before you play. It is also important to calibrate if you have a friend trying out CanopySim on your goggles so they can get the best results.
The controls are behaving differently. What can I do?
If you are having trouble with controllers and they are not behaving as they did before, please use the calibration option from the main menu and recalibrate. Most issues can be resolved by calibrating CanopySim. We do recommend you calibrate often for best play experience!
