Even in VR projects you spend comparatively more time not wearing your HMD, and for non-VR projects this is 100% of your time. It’s annoying that
- SteamVR is always launched whenever you open the UE4/5 editor regardless of your project’s actual VR support.
- You need to edit the .uplugin to make it default disabled after every update if you don’t want any new sandbox/test projects to start with it. Turning it off for a project only affects that project.
Please make the plugin opt-in instead or at least remove the unconditional launch of SteamVR.
