  1. Excellent Joe, thanks for the review. The Reverb is my next purchase as soon as it becomes available. My only worry was no IPD adjustment but as in other reviews it appears the good sized sweet spot allows some flexibility,
  2. I was under that impression but had seen somewhere people saying there was some slight glitching issues with quick head movements in a cockpit environment with the likes of the odyssey +. I`m happy to be corrected in relation to that as I have no experience with WMR, just with my rift which is fairly flawless.
  3. I'm closer to the Reverb myself but I'll wait for the reviews on here and DCS. The lack of IPD adjustment is giving me pause until more user reviews. The Index would be my last option if the Reverb has issues such as the tracking but we'll see. The greater fov on the Index will reduce overall resolution. If valve had gone with 2k panels like the Reverb, it would have been an instant buy.

    Yes I relented and picked up the F-16 Now all I need is the Reverb, whenever that lands. I picked up the F-16 last night after the I-16 last week at full price despite my usual rule of waiting for the 1/2 price sales for the WW2 stuff. I`ll give the A-8 a miss until well discounted as I have the Dora. With a Sim-lab pit in the works, this flight sim lark is snowballing, but I think gives a decent return on the investment, the VR experience being the jewel in the crown. The new dynamic campaign system is the next important milestone to get implemented in the very, very near future I hope. IL2 is also well supported needless to say.
  5. I was ready to order the Index on release and would have bought the full monty. But the sub-par resolution makes it just another 1.5 gen option not worth consideration, especially at the price of ~1100 euro. I`ll be picking up the Reverb or maybe the Acer version as the resolution is vastly superior. The rift S is another 1.5 gen hmd but at least it doesn`t pretend to be anything else. If the price dropped to the 300 euro mark I might consider it. Resolution trumps everything in my view.
  6. Looking at the Reverb over the last few days, and having dismissed the rift S at birth, I think the HP hi-res offering will be my next purchase to replace my CV1. I`m becoming a bit jaded at the low-res of my rift, and it`s time to move on. Oculus just aren`t at the races for simmers atm. I have no experience of WMR but I`ll give it a chance for the clarity. I have always found the rift very poor for night missions in DCS and IL2, with the SDE especially noticeable. I really can`t see how it could be any worse with the HP tbh.
  7. Excellent work, and very appreciated.
  8. It`s just a case of waiting I think, 2019 will give us a better idea of how the market is. Vive have a new eye tracking headset and we`ll see what becomes of that. I`d be happy with the quality of the rift, wired, 4k res, and a better FOV for ~450/500 euro mark. Cheaper if we could use the existing outside tracking and our current sensors/touch. Eye tracking and foveated rendering would be a big bonus and worth extra. Vive pro is way overpriced for what it is imo.
  9. I can imagine the T-34 crew losses on the Eastern Front were terrible. It was a meat grinder where tens of millions of people and machines were relentlessly fed. It was total war on a scale that far exceeded that in the west.
  10. Again as a rift user, no complaints here. OK one of the earphone packed in, but I use wireless headphones, so it`s a non issue. I`m going to wait for the CV2, at least for this year. Pimax I feel, are not worth the money, lots of stories of shoddy and poor/broken headsets. Those lads will only be a flash in the pan and will disappear once the big boys bring on the next gen hmd`s.
  11. The RTX 2060 seems to give a lot of bang for the buck, and it`s future proof with DLSS etc. I`m running a 2080 myself, but for 1080/1140 gaming go for the 2060.
  12. You can also include the submarine and the guided torpedo et al. My personal favourite is Tayto crisps.😉 https://www.thinkbusiness.ie/articles/10-world-changing-irish-inventions/
  13. Distillation was likely picked up by Irish monks that traveled to the region around the Mediterranean, and Egypt. There it was used to produce perfume, the Irish likely put it to a much better use. There were many connections with early Irish Celtic Christianity and the Coptic church in Egypt. The Irish Monks followed the teachings of the Desert Father`s, but unlike the Coptic`s who exiled themselves in the desert, the Irish had only the desert of the sea and exiled themselves to places like Skellig Michael for a life of quiet compilation. Evidence of that connection can be seen in an eight century vellum manuscript that was found almost intact in a bog in Tipperary. Now known as the Faddan More Psalter, it`s on display in the National Museum of Ireland. Papyrus originating from Egypt was found in the binding of the book. The Atlantic fringe was a highway in the past for goods, commerce, culture etc., well known and well used by the Irish who traveled around it and into the Mediterranean. Ireland has a long history with the Mediterranean, and the connection to northern Spain being quiet strong. The Milesians, the Irish Gael`s in the Leabhar Gabhála (Irish Book of Invasions) originate from Galicia, which is still a celtic part of Spain today with it`s own language, similar music etc. Genetically the Irish are closest to the Basques and Galicians of the northern Iberian peninsula. Ireland was likely settled as the last glaciation retreated, from part of that remnant population that survived in a pocket in or around the northern part of Spain during that glacial period. Genetic markers from Irish fauna are Spanish in origin, the Irish Badger has a Spanish origin while the British variety does not, This Spanish connection is replicated widely in many other species. http://www.seandalaiocht.com/blog1/papyrus-fragments-found-with-ancient-irish-bog-book There are Irish peat whiskey`s as well, as we have no shortage of it in Ireland http://www.kilbeggandistillingcompany.com/our-brands/connemara. But Irish whiskey is generally more refined by being triple distilled, developing a smoother whiskey. Irish whiskey was the biggest selling whiskey in the world by far pre 1920. The War of Independence and the following economic war with Britain saw a lot of the distilleries close and opened the door to the Scottish variety. I`ve no doubt that Irish Whiskey will have a good run at knocking the Scots of their perch. It`s already growing leaps and bounds with a a lot of new distilleries going into operation.

    If you have the full fidelity modules already, then I see no reason to buy it. So the point is a bit moot.

    I agree, the full fidelity models are more straight forward to navigate due to the clickability of their cockpits. Once you know your aircraft's layout, then it`s a non issue. Saying that, MAC is for new entrants to the franchise and is welcome, giving people the option to choose what suits them best.
