    thank you

    what an amazing sim (VR)

    yes for example now as functional as the PMDG747 flightdeck i think the AF FS2 flightdeck is of very good standard.

    A month has passed and I am still amazed

    I 100% agreed with what you said, I feel the same way
  5. VR is the future try aerofly fs2 and take the default 747 for a spin, .... mind blowing...

    what an amazing sim (VR)

    yes with this sim you just plan your route and go fly, no tweaking this, crashes that, there are still a few issues that need to be resolved but the enjoyment of flying from one airport to the other on very detailed planes and flightdeck with the added bonus of smooth performance in VR, it is just so satisfying!

    what an amazing sim (VR)

    ok so i purchased aerofly 2 a few mths ago played it a little and never got back to it, i then played fsx abit in VR and due to crashing due to errors etc (fly-inside and limited 32 application thanks to FSX) I returned to aerofly, i then flew with the 737500 and started to enjoy the scenery etc in VR however in FSX in enjoyed most the glass cockpit of the 737800 PMDG, however today i took the default 747 of aerofly for a quick flight wow i am so impressed with this flightsim ever though the fmc doesn't work the sense of being in a 747 flight deck and the amazing stunning views in VR was jsut spectacular ! No fs has come close to the feeling of being in a flight deck than this flightsim, I am so excited for the future of this game, thank you developers you really are on a winner.

    Honestly

    have you seen this scenery in VR, I don't know about others but I find it amazing !

    are there any plans to make further improvements to the current aircraft, for example the current 737 400 is a very nice aircraft but will there be a future update of a working FMC ?

    No idle/full thrust

    Thanks but I only fly with one joystick I will have to investigate further something possibly going on with FSX and my joystick rather than the 737 then.

    No idle/full thrust

    I have been flying the 737 for years and did not notice this issue before, I always disconnected the A/T and AP around 1000 above and manually fly in, also ensuring my joystick is set to idle thrust and what used to happen the 737 used to go to idle and i used to control my speed using pitch and thereby have a nice flight to flare, now because it does not go to idle I am landing too far, too high and and finding it extremely difficult to put the plane down and all this is very unrealistic, so this is news to me what you have mentioned.

    No idle/full thrust

    i have this same issue whilst on approach and manually flying down i disconnect the ap and a/t and set my joystick to idle but the pmdg 737 still does not go to idle and it is very hard to land when the engines are still around 40%n1, any ideas?

    Aerofly 2 ultrawide

    yes like with all technology it is inevitable prices will go down, I was in a fortunate position that selling my cockpit hardware paid for my rift and some. VR at its current state does have some short comings, mainly not a crisp and clear than a 2d monitor, however i think within 5 years the prices will come down and the resolution of these things will go up, that is just the way technology is, no doubt we will need to have even faster computers to handle it all. Just last night I did a short flight from Boston to KJFK in the PMDG 737 in full VR, did a manual approach and it was a breeze would not have dreamt of such a nice manual approach looking at a 2d monitor, landed and taxied to the gate and I just shook my head in disbelief how good VR is and where we have come from, (remembering the flightsim 98 days when I first started with flight simulator way back then).

    Aerofly 2 ultrawide

    have you tried leapmotion ? i control the pmdg 737 mcp, lights, autopilot, fd, etc with my hands, although I still use mouse for programming the fmc, and a few other things.

    I am sorry you cannot afford it, as you probably know if you have the rift and VR you are now sitting in the cockpit, I would say VR will make spending thousands of dollars on setting up a home built cockpit will be redundant, infact I had a basic cockpit set up with mcp, efis, rudder pedals, throttle from throttelek and a short throw 1080p projector, most of it is all sold, that is how good i think Vr is.
