  1. The VR experience of actually sitting in the tank is amazing.
  2. I don't yet know if it is better or worse... so I can't vote. I know it should be linked to control axis by either a game controller or joystick. I hope we get there.
  3. Reading some of the comments in this thread have been amazing... People need to calm down. 40 year old man travels on commercial airlines for decades.. reading magazines, sleeping, etc. One day the flight crew announce WIFI is now available on the aircraft. Ten minutes later the flight announce the WIFI isn't working on the flight MAN IS ANGRY THAT THE WIFI ISN'T WORKING
  4. I thank the lord everyday that I was born an optimist and not a pessimist. I look at il2 and see one of my life's happiest past-times and I am damn thankful for it... people like you see excuses, greed and a shitty map because some "thing" (insert niggle here) isn't represented as you see fit; and the part ruins the whole. It must be a disappointing existence.
  5. Well one of the problems has been fixed, the view of the crew in the turret is now linked to the turret... which is cool, though the gunners “ take control” view is still linked to the hull. At least the nestled view works as expected. Damn, if they could just figure out a way to have the turret elevate/depress and rotate from arrow keys, game controller, or joystick. The mouse “point and follow” is hard to accept. I don’t know what’s going on here technologically but obviously it’s a big deal to implement. Its getting there.
  6. Its great and disappointing in equal measure. The three biggest remaining issues are 1. the required use of keyboard which is difficult without eyes. 2. the VR view is linked to the hull of the tank and not the turret basket (so when the turret spins and you are the gunner your head remains forward) 3. the gunsight view is next to impossible to use in VR (you cant "nestle" to it like you can in the plane bombsight. The good news is that these seem like issues that can hopefully be solved. For instance, there seems to be no great reason why the gunsight isn't identical to the bombsight in VR. That said, buy TC
  7. I wasn’t thinking about the fact that you already have the lighthouse sensors, so you could get into an index at a fairly decent price. Sell your Vive for some small amount and you might be in pretty good shape.
  8. It’s certainly better than what you have , and visually comparable to the Vive pro with the lens mod. I think the question is more time and money. I don’t see anything to eclipse this current high end visual standard for at least a year. Do you want to wait a year? If the answer is no, then it’s down to the price of a index or hedge your bet and get a rift S ( I have no first hand experience with it but I have heard it’s decent) or something cheaper. I am a VR enthusiast so I will always buy and use the latest and greatest, I have no regrets in this but I would not advise anyone as to how much a dollar is worth to them. VR flying is one of my happy life pursuits, I am happy to spend on it.
  9. Well, it was worth a shot. Thanks for checking it out.
  10. I have found that 120HZ with motion smoothing disabled gives me the best experience. Many other actual index users report the same result (DCS and iL2). I had lowered it to 90Hz but it was simply worse. Though to be fair; I haven’t fiddled with it since the recent steamVR patch, so maybe motion smoothing is better.
  11. No, it’s been done like three times, and nothing recently. The last best BOB flight sim was “their finest hour” in 1989.
  12. Well that sucks. I wanted to like CLoD but lacking VR and using an entirely different game engine is putting off. But heck, if we do get the Hurricane II we already have the ROF channel map. Import that bad boy and let us pretend.
  13. Can someone give me some insight into why the CLOD mod team has cornered the market on Battle of Britain? I mean, it has been Years since CLOD was released and I don’t see why an active real publisher has surrendered use of that campaign? Did the MOD team buy the rights or something or are the devs best friends maybe? I honestly don’t know the context of that policy.
  14. Chiliwili, When using the Reverb for flight sims (actually in the cockpit flying), are the details noticeably clearer? Because in those images it appears substantially better. I almost bought a Reverb but the smaller FOV (and the teething issues) kept me away.
  15. Like ever? Wow, that is some severe resolve. I could never give up my favorite hobby over such a minor point but more power to you. I am sure another WWII flight sim with a better Tempest isn’t too far away, I am too old to wait though. Good luck mate, it always sucks to see people leave.
  16. B25 with enhanced co-pilot functionality = 😁 Me-410
  17. I went Oculus Rift > Odyssey > Vive Pro (lens mod) > Pimax 5k > Vive Pro (Lens Mod) > Index = No regrets. Bear in mind that cost wasn't a major factor in any of this.
  18. Have you ever even used the index in il2? I would hardly call it a shambles. There is a compelling argument that for the money, the rift s can get you through until any next year headsets.
  19. Christ man! What does it all mean? Translate! If they add game pad support that will resolve a ton of issues.
  20. I think one of the elephants in the room is that "Battle of Britain" would be insanely popular; but the CLOD cloud will keep them from making such a great choice.
  21. We already know it’s going to be Battle of France. Or did I dream that?
  22. I am able to help in any of the areas but would submit for the VR section. Our group only flies in VR and have been doing so for two years. I have had a Rift, odyssey, Vice pro, Pimax 5k, and currently use the Valve index with slanted screens. I have an I7 running a 2080ti. I also beta tested for you when we did the 1918 offensive campaign in Rise of Flight... oh so many years ago. I also fly in real life, as well as spent many years as mech infantry in the US Army. (I was a platoon commander and maneuvered armored vehicles in formations) -If you want some of us for group multiplayer TC WIS-Redcoat WIS-ArthurBrown WIS-Vain
  23. Fantastic. So many people appreciate their work on this. Such great community members.
  24. I appreciate your enthusiasm but I think only a couple of the anointed lads get to do official work. But by all means see what you can do.
  25. ICDP, What would it take to bribe you to finish these for the in game default skins?
