  1. Im what most folk would call a "snowflake" lefty liberal hippy, and i rather like CP:2077,but remember, just because one person is a "type" they dont represent the views of everyone of that "type".
  2. specs 1090 @4.8 32gb(64? I cant remember!) ram 2080sc Various ssds and Hdds Ive owned the CV1. Rift S and the Quest 2. They are all very different beasts and have very different prices. If I had to choose just one, it would be the Q2. Its just better all round vs cost. I LOVE my other headsets but theyve been packed away as backups. The CV1 and S have their own bits/attributes I would like to see on the Q2 but to be honest I forget about thiose once im in VR. There are some who delight in complaining about headsets and their drawbacks, I think of them as uber HIFI experts who must simply have the best of the best and become enraged if the "impedence or wattage signal doesnt equal the sub bass max ohm count in a variable wave frequency", To me, its all dingo's kidneys and im happy if I can listen to the music i like even if its from an Alexa speaker. Ymmv. The rift S is reaching its end of life, as lovely though she was, go for a quest2.

    oh, i agree. I not saying that the game is poor (i was in a zoom meeting when i wrote that post so couldnt enlarge upon it.) just that , for me, and the emphasis must be on the "for me", the term "sterile" is one ive personally applied to DCS before so the post i repied too instantly rang true for me. Again, by all standards I should be in DCS lots of the time, but there is (for me! ) something that i cant quite put my finger on which stops me from using all those aircraft ive bought. Il2 isnt perfect and i regularly fall in and out of love with it and get irritated that i cant press all the buttons etc but it seems to hold my personal interest more. My brain isnt big and the only term that i can find for DCS is "sterile" whether accurate or not, there's this nebulous thing that is slightly 'off' compared to il2. Again, its me and not how id want others to think about it! I *want* to like DCS more than I do. My wallet wants me to as well as ive got quite a lot of the franchise content and its a shame im not using/learning it more. Just wanted to make myself a little more clear, as i hate to see "this game sux!!!111!" style hit and run posts which mine might have been viewed as! S!
  4. i cant over recommend the Q2. its not *the* perfect VR headset of all time, but if anyone offered me a CV1, S, or Q2 id instagrab the q2. Also most folk wont *need* the 256 one, even if it seems the way to go. Grab the 64 and spend the extra on the elite strap with battery (which isnt essential either)

    i too have a stable of aircraft going mostly unused in DCS. I *should* adore DCS but seem to find it more frustrating than fun. Im sure its an issue with me but I cant get motivated to jump in any more.
  6. Its a (probably rather minor) issue that does raise its head quite frequently in the Stam forums, from what Ive noticed. The problem (imho) is that games like CoD are soooo huge that generally the wider gaming public already know by osmosis through their media instake that CoD X and CoD Y are different beasts. That said, to me, I have not a clue about CoD (since the original WW2 ones) and I couldnt reliably tell anyone what part of the franchise goes where and is compatible with what. So, the issue will raise its head in some quarters regardless, but this is mitigated by a modicum of research or Google-fu and having a helping community. I would be hesitant to sever the links with the respected *IL2* franchise if for some insane reason I become responsible for their corporate ID. (I am open to offers ) Its an interesting topic though and shows how even "small" (!) things have to be deeply considered by the devs, not just "how fast is an Me-109 in the wet" angle of the sim proper.
  7. looks amazing! EDIT : all the models from everyone look *A M A Z I N G*
  8. I adore my Quest 2. Its like buying one's first VR headset again. My rift S is now retired as a back up and the addition of the Elite Strap with battery seals the deal (ymmv) I even started playing "casual" games like beat sabre. Im a 50year old Goth Rock lover and even I got into the "kids new fangled music". Untethering is a game changer. The enhanced controller battery life is astounding, and the improved clarity etc pushes the feel of VR further. Is it perfect? No. But then again whch VR headset is? For the price its great and I wholeheartedly recommend one to anyone inclined to dip their toes into. Pro tip: get the 64gb version. 90pc of users simply dont/wont need the 256, rather put the money into the Elite strap with battery. (Ive never been fit enough to drain the head mounted one)
  9. Do we know anything about multiple Pcs controlling different aspects of the sim? I suddenly find myself with a spare PC now my next intended career path failed and id like to see it put to good use.
  10. in game development *nothing* is quite simple!
  11. damn. just spent the last of my savings on fs2020. now terrified.
