Any plans to implement VR into SP Pro?

Not in the immediate future. One of our developers has a kit (and gets sick every time when using it), so I won't rule out that he might surprise me one day. It could also be that one of our army customers would like to have an inexpensive VR solution, and Oculus might fit the bill.

But I don't want to create unjustified expectations here: We have more than our hands full with other tasks that the entire development team and I consider of higher priority. Like TrackIR, Oculus is a specific gadget with only a limited use if "slapped on" to an existing simulation. In order to generate substantial extra value the integration must go deeper and change the many parts of the user interface, which would be a disproportionate effort.
Some token integration might satisfy some owners of these gadgets but I'd like to go beyond minimal effort, and do it right if we do it. That requires more programming hours than we can afford at the moment.
