I'm an old on/off Simmer. Bought lots of BOX Modules but never really played it. Same with DCS but had some months with it. Now starting IL2 again and the problems from Il 1946 are still there for me: Detecting planes and Identifying them.
When I bought the Vive on day 1 I did stick to TIR because I couldnt read gauges in DCS and I would never see planes or ground targets. Now with the VivePro it looks like I made it at least over my personal line. The VR integration in IL2 seems to be even better and the gauges are really easy to read. However, seeing planes but more above all and my main issue is identifying a plane. At least friend or for. The planes are just a non sharp bulk of pixels. Only tracers help me a bit when fired. I could compensate with a better knowlewdge of he planes and their visual appearance but still I would struggle. Only when very very close and with a good angle on the target I can see the "straight german wings" and more elipsoid soviet ones.
Even on bypasses I dont even see the balkenkreuz or red star. It's more like seeing or getting an idea of a squared white area ad background for the cross.
So I end up diving on every plane. And even when seeing they are foes Im almost too late to shot (I know you should be close anyway). In head ons I end up being shot at but not returning fire if he decides to wait for the last split second. Can you help me?
I havent raised PD in SteamVR as 1.0 seems to be enough for VivePro and IL2. Another thing is I want to save performance. Because since opening IL2 this weekend I have a strange effect:
It looks like water in your diving maske where the prop is. Even quick movement in menus and opening closing maps gives me a gluey effect. I found some threads but nothing didi help. Reducing grafics seetings a lot, disabling head shake, disabling HUD didnt help. Looking ahead is even more difficult this way and also really straining and no fun to play.
I have a i7 4770 on 3,5GHZ, 16 GB Ram and a Asus 1080ti OC.
Playing in VR opens a lot of Steam/SteamVR processes on my computer. Should I do sth about this?
