    VR Honeymoon?

    I find it simply downright awesome and I have not flown using a monitor in a year. As HiFlyer points out it has a lot to do with the VR implementation. I spend all of my flight time in DCS, Aerofly FS 2 and IL2 BOX. As other implementations get better I am sure this will expand but until then I am one happy simmer.

    I tried to become a member of the iPacs forum early yesterday. I went through the membership process and at the end all was well and it noted that I would be contacted on final approval. I went into the site and I saw I was listed as a member and I could see my profile but I did not have access to create a message. I returned a couple of times that day and it listed me as a member who was online. I never did hear back from them and today I went to the site and I am no longer listed as a member. Very disappointing - anyone know what is going on? Thanks P.S. I did try and login again but it said that I did not exist in their database

    Never liked the STEAM concept

    Domae001 (above) hit the nail on the head. The world gets bizarre pretty quickly when you are dealing with many many vendors each with their own DRM, distribution, licensing, keys etc. Every time there is an update, addition, change you are off on a search to see what you need to do and half the time it does not work or the connections are terrible. This all makes it hard to mange and control for the user and most of these vendors do a poor job of it because they are aircraft and scenery producers and not "platform" or e-commerce developers. so... Steam all the way!
  7. I think there are many good reasons to still use flight sims with monitors (some mentioned above) but I am so glad that I will never have to do that again.
  8. I did not post on VR topics in this or other forums for quite awhile because some folks had mentioned that they experienced a wow factor when they first used it but, in time, it wore off and then they went back to using a monitor. Well time has passed and I am loving it as much as ever... if not more. I have not used a flight sim or a racing sim on my PC with a monitor since I got my VR setup. Some things were a little wonky at first but most developers have started to round out the edges and those developers who are now starting products with VR initially baked in are making some great software. The nice thing is as the hardware gets better so will the software - can't wait!
  9. It is Project A that has my attention for the long run... likely a new platform (as speculated AeroFly), native VR!!!, 64bit, ORBX and great VFR flying.

    Orbx no longer accepting PayPal

    There are just too many issues with this company. I would not be heart broken if ORBX as a business entity faded away and some of the talented and creative folks who produce content for them went off and formed their own ventures. I have no doubt they would have much better business acumen than the present owner(s).

    CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN!

    The World Baseball Classic will be held once again in 2017 (this time in Los Angeles) and will feature top professional players from 16 counties. All the players from the U.S. in the past have been form MLB and most of the Canadians were also. The series started in 2006 and Japan leads with 2 wins and 1 third, followed by the Dominican Republic, South Korea, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Venezuela. It will be interesting to see what happens next year.
  14. I also was an original contributor and got excited about the original vision (which has changed and re-changed many times). Over the years I have gone from excited, to interested, to puzzled and now disillusioned. At this point in time I do not have it on any of my machines. I have never seen an undertaking so in need of knowledgeable and competent business management.
