  1. Yeah weighting/masking only makes sense if you have several sources of feedback of course. For a single buttkicker it would probably act like more of a tactile G-meter. Which while helps awareness on how much strain you are under, will not be "realistic" as such. But again, it would still convey the strain of the pilot in a scalar way.
  2. Count me in as well. I guess it could be made to feel fairly natural. How about if the other effects are weighted/masked by the orientation of the craft and direction/strength of the turn. So that the area closest to the force direction has the strongest feedback? Would give a sort of seat of the pants feedback.
  3. All modules are tied to your account. You can download the client from your account page any time you want, and the content is immediately unlocked for you when you buy something😊
  4. Or even better: get OBS and the steamVR plugin. That way you can select eye to record and get exactly the resolution you want without having to fill half the area with the other eye😁
  5. Can't speak for the JetSeat but I imagine it's much the same as the Realteus ForceFeel. It only makes a low *brrrr* sound. Bit like a massage chair.
  6. Sounds like quite the task developing night fighting equipment though. But it would be a cool addon for sure. Mossie, 110... Lots of possibilities in terms of aircraft. Only question is: would people fly it, and would servers run night maps.
  7. Read an interesting Norwegian book this Christmas called "Tyrants of the Air: Men and bombers through 100 years". Apparently the high altitude pilots before oxygen systems suffered some pretty bad injuries.
  8. Hehe, well I guess it'll stay past Ortodox Christmas which is January 7th. Where I'm from we throw the tree out at the 13th day of Christmas. No idea why, but then again we put a damn tree indoors...🤣
  9. Think I used a bit of nail polish remover and the rough side on a kitchen sponge.
  10. Proper bush plane landing that😂
  11. I agree with Golani, find a place where you can return it if it doesnt fit. ~70 is in the upper range. I've read people having issues around that IPD, but I so, so, so hope that it works and that you get that VR wow effect. First time I tried the first Rift in IL-2 it was a severe downgrade in resolution, and even though there was a screen door I could look through it and not focus on it. I looped a Yak and nearly barfed 360 degrees. In a good way. It felt like a fourth wall had come down. When the Reverb hit, with nearly 4 times the resolution over the same FOV I was in heaven. Bottom line is; try the Reverb, if it's not for you then try one with harware IPD adjustment. VR is the way forward regarding immersion. We're IN the damn cockpit, and it is damn fantastic. It even cured my car sickness IRL.
  12. VR-headsets have an open nose section so no worries about sneezing into it atleast😂
  13. Your IPD is the distance between the pupils. The average, and the absolute sweetspot on the Reverb is 63mm. It is usable within a good range at either side. So unless you have a very wide or narrow IPD you should be fine. You can input your IPD value into the WMR settings to have the virtual cameras match your IPD.
  14. I would suggest you upgrade to Win10, but the rig seems good enough for any headset. The type of headset depends on if you value resolution or field of view highest. If it's resolution, I'd say go with a HP Reverb. It's got about the same FOV as the first Rift, but the amount of pixels crammed into that low field of view makes for a very clear high res image without any screen door.
