About This File

HeadTrack is a lightweight plugin for X-Plane that lets you use apps like SmoothTrack to control the cockpit view position and orientation (source code). HeadTrack is made with ❤️ in Scotland. HeadTrack will always be free! If you want to support my X-Plane work, you can buy me a coffee coffee!


Extract the zip file and drop the htrack folder in x-plane/Resources/plugins.


You can enable and disable head tracking, as well as reset the center head and in-simulator positions in the Plugins > HeadTrack menu in X-Plane. Point your head tracking app to your PC's IP address and port 4242, and you should be good to go!

The settings window lets you tweak tracking sensitivity, smoothing and response. It also displays graphs of the current received head position, and of the corresponding cockpit position if tracking is active.

Settings saved globally are stored in x-plane/Resources/plugins/htrack/config.json. You can also save settings per-plane, and these will be loaded automatically when you load specific planes. These are stored as htrack.json in the plane's folder. This can be useful if you want snappier settings for fighter planes and something calmer for jet liners, for example.
