    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
  13. Stuttttterrrrrrring seems to have stoped in SP..though i only play with PWCG. seems crazy but my performance only improves when I turn graphic options UP? I play VR only, Rift S on a MSI Laptop GT75(?) with 1070 graphics card. i get steady 40FPS with EVERYTHING set to MAX...40FPS seems fine to me, never hit 90 but dont really feel the need to IMHO
  14. I only fly offline to be honest, however lije yourself i tweaked the graphics a little and pretty much cured it. seems like its back to the drawing board. i spend more time tweaking than i do flying these days
  15. I somehow sorted the stuttering but new patch today.....back worse than ever.
  16. if anybody wants an Originaly desinged IRVIN flying jacket, this is the place to go...100% aunthentic design and weigh a tonne...amazingly warm though https://www.flying-jacket.com/
  17. might bea shot in the dark here but try turning up your settings as apposed to lowering them. i run Rift s on a MSI 1070 carded laptop on ultra with most other options turn to high. the lower my sttings the worse the performance. i keep a constant 35-40 on PWCG and it look smooth as silk to me
  18. just carry on doing what you do Pat..i for one are happy to play with things just the way they are, any improvements are welcome but just do them in your own good time, but this campaign generator just goes from strength to strength
  19. I'm just about to start the 1/24 bubble canopy typhoon. I find that modelling is a great extension to our sim flying. building a model and then being able to fly the exact bird (even more so in VR..build a spitfire etc then fly it..amazing) is something I could have only dreamed of as a boy. I encourage anyone who has yet to have a go at modelling to give it a bash, nothing big or fancy just build something you love. for those with kids its a great bonding experience on cold wet rainy days.
