  1. Whats the feedback on this, just ordered one? 3.5-inch dual AMOLED display provides realistic viewing at a 110-degree field of view, and 2880 x 1600 resolution. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-odyssey-mixed-reality-headset-with-controllers-for-compatible-windows-pcs/6156600.p?skuId=6156600
  2. Well going from 1080p to 4k, you have one thing in your favor here. You will be able to radically cut down AA. On 1080 you need a fair amount to smooth things out. At 4K you can half it of even more and still obtain razor clarity. In certain situations given what I said you could see an increase in FPS depending on weather and how many clouds are being rendered. If you have a 1080 it should be enough, however if you plan on keeping AA high or running UHD Clouds, or Texture_Size_Exp=9/10 you will consume all the VRAM on the 1080 and would require the Ti.
  3. Thinking about taking the plunge, is the Rift the way to go? I know 8K VR headsets are on the way soon, but Xmas is around the corner and this would be neat to have under the tree. What gear is best?
  4. Here's a full length movie (Not Air Emergency) of the Gimli Glider 767. Great rendition. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113018/
  5. Sorry meant the -8, and now I am getting. If you rewind about 3-4 years ago it was very challenging to incorporate full flight decks that ran off the PMDG platform. Most of my comments come from that timeframe so I am now being reminded of the advancement and project direction. I am very pleased to hear this and am even more eager to see what lies ahead. While companies like ProSim, PSX, Project Magenta are great. They all have their pros and cons, so it will be very nice to have PMDG software running with the flight model and systems logic.
  6. Hahaha! Yeah I must of just sputtered an area with no real recollection. KIAD seems like its ringing a bell now. Didn't realize it was the -800. Awesome, it'll be interesting to see what avionics suite (Maybe PSX?) and how the control cursor units work once this is all formalized. I've built and maintained a couple 737NG sims from FDS and Agronn in my past line of work so these kinds of things are right up my alley. Will Nat from Nat Vis be doing the visuals?
  7. Quick question for the PMDG staff. I recall about a year ago (or more) that PMDG announced a partnership with FDS and was planning a Sim Center featuring the 747-400. Is there any followup to this?
  8. Following this to see if Mr Spil replies hahaha...
  9. I've used 9 and 10. They are both great, my system can handle 10 all day. I ended up reverting though because even on my Samsung 960 Nvme drive the load times were EXCRUCIATINGLY slow... It wasn't worth the trade off. Yes it looked great but not that much better than default to wait almost 2-3 minutes or more to load. Yes Vram was 9.5 to 10gb but the card still had overhead.
  10. As soon as I saw Jet Tech reply, I ran to read the post. I wasn't disappointed lol. Nice work.
  11. I really enjoy reading your replies Rob. Thanks.
  12. I think he means Black Box Simulations...
  13. Bump, man I'm surprised not many are chiming in. I think head bounce and bob in the sim is just as important as how the sim looks and sounds.
  14. Let us know what you find out.
  15. Same for me, and will do.
