    Future for VR

    For some people (myself included) the implementation of VR into future Flight sims is as important as moving from keyboard to joystick. I remember back in the day...flying around a simple map using a rubber keyboard to control my plane was the pinnacle of the hobby..fast forward a few years and using my newly purchased joystick was a revelation, there was no way I could have gone back the keyboard. VR for me is having that same feeling once again. now I've sampled what VR (even in its earl stages) has to offer I cannot bring myself to regress. as much as I love BOB Blitz, I simply cannot bring myself to spend any time with-it due to the above comments. I bought the game to help the dev's, but I've spent little to no time within game
  2. Lol Qualty. cant beat a good WW2 Dit
  3. Count me In Pat..the best just keeps getting better
  4. Yep ready for this...ive just watched the Cold Blue on you tube and currently reading The big week by James Holland
  5. The severn pillars of wisdom by T E Lawrence is a fantastic book, for anyone who studies the middle east or (like me) works out there its a must read, not much has changed other than Mobile phones and the internet. the underlying tribal element is as strong as ever
  6. stopping the misses from trying to talk to you.....climbing out after take off,flaps gear, up trim......."take that stupid thing of your head and go to Tesco for some bread!"
  7. In all honesty, if you afford to take the plunge into VR the FC is pretty amazing...looking over the side of your aircraft and feeling like your a 2000ft is incredable, it also gives you amazing insight as to just how it was to fly these things (as far as can be possible ATM) Single player with PWCG is also fantastic (please donate if you use)
  8. When it comes to human nature, we can do some pretty random stuff to each other. to argue that he would or wouldnt do that doesnt make any sense. My experiance as a medic in recent conflicts, is that when the brown stuff hits the fan..logic and reason (with regards casualties) goes out of the window. If there is one thing ive learnt is that Humans are predictibly un-predictable
  9. Thanks Finkeren, that's what I love about this Forum, you learn something everyday
  10. My issue with the film is (and this is not a racist statement, just a statement of fact) is that running through the trenches there seemed to be a few people of colour sitting around, im sure that want the case in the lads battalions during that period (though happy to be corrected)
  11. Wow that's a blast from the past..one of my favorite games ever......VR support Pretty please
  12. Anything by James Holland....War in the West series vol 1.2 Burma 44, Normandy 44 and yet to read the Big Week. also Boyd (as in Major John) is an unmissable read for any aviation nut, icouldnt put in down and was depressing to finnish it...so read it again
