Gamers Take Note! These New Indie Racing Titles Have Just Dropped - January 2022 - Odd Nugget


When playing a racing game, pushing harder on the keys doesn't make your car go faster.

But, you do it anyway.

With that having been said...

Take on a new challenge in any of these amazing new racing games fresh off of steam and itch...

SimplePlanes VR

SimplePlanes VR video game Developed by Jundroo, LLC and published by Jundroo, LLC

Developed by Jundroo, LLC and published by Jundroo, LLC


Reach out to grab the flight controls, flick a switch to open the cockpit door, sit back and feel the haptics rumble as you guide the stick to a smooth landing.

Do it all while keeping your eyes peeled on the jet that just flew by...or the Bush plane landing in the distance, or that giant Mech which appeared in the middle of your runway.

Experience the expanded freedom of SimplePlanes as you fly all the crafts again for the first time, in VR.


Over , airplanes are available to download for free from SimplePlanes.com Find anything from old WW bombers to next generation fighters to sci-fi spacecrafts.


This product doesn't include the ability to build or modify crafts, SimplePlanes does though! After you get to the bottom of this page, you can check out the list showing a quick comparison between SimplePlanes and SimplePlanes VR.


Flight simulation at its finest. Every little decision the creator made will impact how you fly it. Weight distribution, thrust, lift, and drag are all calculated continuously while flying. Parts can break off in a spectacular fashion while you're flying due to over-stress or by impacting something. The fun won't stop there though. You can keep on flying even with a missing wing if you've got the skills.


Climb in to the cockpit of one of your craft and see how you fare piloting it in the challenges. The challenges will keep you entertained for hours. Land on aircraft carriers, escort bombers, dodge surface-to-air missiles, race through courses, and so much more.


Use any craft for any purpose. The sky is the limit. Literally.


This product does not support Steam Workshop. However, it shares all of the amazing modding support of SimplePlanes, and thus is fully capable of being modded right out of the box.

Mods are fundamentally compatible between SimplePlanes and SimplePlanes VR, but existing mods are not guaranteed to work when VR is enabled. For the time being, any VR specific mods could be uploaded to SimplePlanes' workshop, and be accessible there. You can also enable mods directly in SimplePlanes VR, you just need to do so without the help of Steam Workshop.

Hope that clears things up!

Still have a question about SimplePlanes vs. SimplePlanes VR? Let's see if this helps...

SimplePlanes VR will have a launch discount for a limited time.

Both games have access to the same crafts

SimplePlanes includes an aircraft builder, SimplePlanes VR does not.

Except for those which require building; all challenges, islands, locations, aircraft, etc. are available in both games.

Buying both of them on Steam will automatically enable VR in SimplePlanes. After VR is enabled in SimplePlanes you can do everything there, without switching games.

Some factoids about downloading crafts that you should probably know...

Although all crafts can be piloted in SimplePlanes VR, not all of them have been optimized for VR, and may not have interactable cockpit controls, for example.

After logging in, you can use the search tags to filter to craft which are designed to work in VR. Or, you can choose to check out crafts which may not include VR optimized controls, but may still be really cool to check out in VR. You may also want to check out VR optimized civilian aircraft, or military, experimental, etc.

Also, after logging in you can add favorites to your account from the website via your computerphone, and then easily access those favorites from within the game.

We do not restrict you from downloading huge craft on PC once you're logged-in, so you will likely download designs which drop the fps, and result in poor VR performance, so keep that in mind when choosing what to download.

The vehicles you'll download are primarily hand-crafted by the SimplePlanes community, and as such may vary in how the uploader intended you to interact with them. Some craft use a more standard control setup, others may deviate to accomplish specific needsgoals. Creators may even include custom instructions to inform you how the craft operates.

There are so many amazing aircraft to fly in VR, and we're really excited to have you check them out!

Tesla Motors Simulator video game by habrador

Made by habrador

Do you want to try out the electric car revolution? Then you've come to the right place! Here you will find anunofficial simulator where you can drive vehicles from Tesla Motorswhile experiencing breathtaking environments. Do you have what it takes to control a Roadster equipped with SpaceX thrusters?


Vehicles: Model S, Model X, Model , Roadster (yes, it can do - in seconds in the game), Semi

The real test track that's located behind the Tesla factory in Fremont, California

The co-founder of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk, has also founded the rocket company SpaceX. Two of the rockets in the background are from SpaceX. The other rocket is the Saturn V that launched us to the Moon

The boring machine from The Boring Company, which is another project by Elon Musk


I love that you have the Tesla Track on there. I actually used to be one of the Test drivers, and then after I was the lead for that team."-internetmexican

I don't even know if I can call this a game - it's more of an experience."-Neilogical

Instructions:Press escape to open the menu and you will find all keys.

System requirements:

OS: Windows XP SP, Mac OS X ., Ubuntu ., SteamOS

Graphics card: DX (shader model .) or DX with feature level . capabilities


Follow me onTwitter for previews of upcoming updates:twitter.comeriknordeus(I may even retweet if your share your Tesla Simulator moments on Twitter and tag me!)

Last update:--

Last beta update: -- (SpaceX Starbase Boca Chica Launch Site, Not-A-Flamethrower, Cybertruck, Roadster with thruster, new Starship and Super Heavy, Elon Musk himself,etc)


How can I download the game? . Find out which system you have: Windows, Linux, or Mac

Press download button and the zip folder with the game will be downloaded to your computer

Unzip the folder. If you are using Windows you should be able to right click and then selectextract all

Double-click on the exe file to start the game (if you are on Windows). Otherwise you have to figure out somewhere else how to start the game. On Windows you may get a warning if you really want to run the game, but I promise I haven't included a nasty virus, so ignore the warning!

Why is everything pink? The Mac and Linux versions are untested because I don't own any of these! If you are on a Mac or Linux and everything ispink, try to download the "light" version, which is exactly the same - except a little brighter and fewer shadows.

How often will you update the game? This is a free game made by a single person so I will update when I have time! If you want to play the latest version you should download the BETA, which may be broken!

Will you add interior? The problem with the interior is that it's very time consuming to make detailed interior, so I may add it in the future, but not soon.

Will you add doors? This would require detailed interior, so see above.

Will you add lights? Yes, I just have to figure out which light should be on at which time.

Why can't I drive the Semi with trailer? I've noticed that sometimes the Semi with trailer is stuck and will not move whatever you do. If it happens, try to first reverse and then press forward. I will try to fix this bug in the next update.

Will you add self-driving? It's a Tesla Simulator so self-driving has to be added (even though Teslas are not really self-driving yet). BUT self-driving in a game is as difficult as self-driving in real life, so it will take a very long time to add so it's not a priority.

so what are you waiting for? Let's go like hell!

Download the game like other Tesla fans already have and experience the bright future!

Thank you everyone who has already downloaded the game. I love you all!
