Prepar3d V4.1 and VR

Recommended Posts

"We’ve got some big updates to VR coming in 4.1, so stay tuned."

"we have a strong team focus on immersive technology and virtual reality"

"We believe the future of VR is bright, especially in the training and simulation space. We are excited to see where things go from here. One of our primary goals has always been providing the most immersive training experience possible. VR takes immersion to the next level"

"Flight simulations are definitely an ideal situation for VR and Prepar3D is focused on being the best flight simulation VR platform available"

Will be released October 10th

 

that´s what the prepar3d team said in their AMA on reddit today.

The future of VR in Flight simulation is bright...just in case someone has any doubts.

 

Can`t wait.

Hope we get  ATC windows inside VR.

 

cheers

 

 

Carlos

You can just download the client.msi much less... but now it does not start the oculus home as before and even when you sect in p3d it changes to the view but not in the hdm...

Not sure what you mean? I just went into the sim and set up a flight and when in the cockpit I used the new VR drop down box to select VR flight.

To update I uninstalled the content and the client and then downloaded the full download and only installed the new content and client. When I go into v4.1 I have a drop down box up at top, along with the normal Options and addons.

I would say that vr is more stable in the new version, in that there is much less shuddering blackness if you turn your head rapidly side to side, but you can still tell that fps is low enough that the sim is struggling to supply enough FPS, and that asynchronous timewarp is doing its utmost to try and save the situation.

I do like the new dropdown, and very much appreciate the reset view option being so readily available now.

You need to do a full uninstall of v4 and install 4.1 just to be safe.

Would you say that Flyinside and P3D V3.0 stereo mode is still the much more playable option????

Something isn't right. I've downloaded a fresh p3d4.1 with never having 4.0 installed and on a fresh windows 10 install and no drop down for vr. Im wondering if the oculus update i got yesterday has anything to do with it?

For one, native vr simply isn't fast enough. If you've ever played a sim that is fast enough, the lag of P3D smacks you in the face like a cold, dead fish. Flyinside is a must.

Secondly, Unless you feel like messing with the Oculus tool to get some supersampling going on, native vr is simply too blurry, and there is no way you are going to read the instruments comfortably unless you lean forwards until you are pretty much rubbing noses with the dashboard.

Did I mention Flyinside is a must?

Third, native vr has artifacts. Little glittery points..... Powerlines sparkle...... stuff happens. This does not happen (as much) with Flyinside.
