  1. You guys really are the best. My friends are always amazed how much better IL2 performs in VR compared to other sims. I have been able to "sell" several copies to buddies of mine after sticking them in the simpit and putting the index on their face and allowing them to go crazy in a P-38. Childhood fantasies fulfilled for many, including myself. Thanks for being so thorough, so attentive, and so competent. Here's to you!🍻
  2. Any index users here able to weigh in on the current state of using steamVR's motion smoothing?
  3. Agree with OP. Without mods multiplayer is nearly impossible unless on a server with icons and that just takes a lot of the fun out of it. Keeps me stuck in singleplayer land 95% of the time.
  4. I'll happily spend $1k on a good piece of FFB kit if it is supported by IL2. Certainly the implementation in Condor (soaring simulator) made getting my license much easier. So nice for feeling like the real thing in non-FBW aircraft.
  5. I just added the Valve Index to my simpit and the difference between it and the OG Vive is night and day. I can read ALL. OF. THE. GAUGES. I can look with my eyes, not just my head. I can check my six without contorting my entire body around. Finally I can fly in VR without any of the HUD turned on. Sure, it's not perfect and the blacks could be blacker, but I'm still grinning like a little kid just flying around, even when not in combat. However, I do fly real life sailplanes, so perhaps there's something to what @=475FG=DAWGER was saying about the joy of VR being somewhat related to IRL pilots recapturing the joy of actually being in the seat.
  6. Don't listen to the naysayers, Jason. This is honestly a dream come true for some of us. Being able to fly these old kites in VR is going to be the highlight of my year. I will continue to try to drum up support in the hopes that the beloved career mode makes an appearance at some point! Cheers!
  7. Looks great Jason! Honestly, I've sold the most copies of IL2 by putting friends in my VR simpit and loading up the beautiful Kuban map. That's all it takes, and they are often looking for a bill of materials to build their own and pricing out a Vive before they leave my house. Hopefully you create some hype and bring more people into our awesome hobby!
  8. Just to throw another hat into the ring... I've also had the constant steamVR/ lighthouse freezes. I haven't been able to nail down what causes them but it's absolutely not happening in any VR title except for IL2. I will roll back Nvidia drivers this weekend but like others have said I have a sneaking suspicion it's something in the game's code that's different. I had no issues before the 3.xx update. Also, Wolf, I'm in your exact situation. Built a very nice custom water cooled PC for this game in VR and I'm pretty disappointed with the current performance. There is no better hardware than what I currently have...
  9. Looks great! Can't wait to cruise above it in my P-38
  10. As much as I love WWII aviation, RoF was always my favorite. I'm so freaking happy that I'll be able to fly those old kites in VR! I immediately pre-ordered BoB and snagged the La-5FN in support. Here's hoping they re-make the career mode for RoF as well! Would be a dream come true.
  11. RoF in VR? My prayers have been answered! Hold on, currently throwing money at the screen.
  12. Thank you devs! The dedication to realism means so much. You will forever have my support.
  13. Looking great! Can't wait for career mode!
  14. Just want to add another voice to the "I cannot play without it anymore" crowd. Every single person who I've sat down in my simpit with VR and IL2 have been absolutely blown away and grinning like a Cheshire cat. Some of them are RL pilots and some of them are terrified of airplanes. Every one comes away convinced this is the most awesome thing to ever happen to gaming. People will always resist change when there's a disruptive technology, and to be fair this is the early adopter phase to be sure. Time will tell what the future of the tech is, but I'm having far too much fun to even care about those petty squabbles.
