    Keep in mind, that there are a zillion graphics mods for Skyrim (reflecting the games popularity) many of which work just fine in VR if you have the urge to track them down and install them.... These range from simple character tweaks all the up to near total graphical makeovers of the game. Here is a small example: https://venturebeat.com/2018/04/08/40-must-have-mods-for-the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-vr/
  2. Oculus Home now incorporates Steam games automatically onto its games list, but sometimes it can't find the correct Icons, and inserts a placeholder or something too small; Found on the Oculus forum, This is a tool that searches for Steam Icons based on the name of the app, or the steam id of the title, which can be found by right clicking the Steam game launch icon, or from the Steam database via searching for the game by name. Since obscure titles like flightsims and their correct icons are rarely found, this allows you to add them yourself to have a more orderly library: Here is the link to the original Oculus Forum thread: https://forums.oculusvr.com/community/discussion/64921/oculus-home-third-party-apps-icon-editor-open-source

  4. Nah, I'm too wayward to stick to any one thing, but I do tend to love me some VR in most cases. The "guide" will be mostly common sense, as in set everything to default and work your way up until you have a working compromise of FPS vs visuals. Use SS sparingly to sharpen your image, being aware there is a FPS cost, and remember that if you need glasses in real life, then you will also need them in vr, unless you are farsighted. Use apps like the Oculus tray tool to monitor your settings and balance them efficiently, etc, and ask for help when in trouble or in doubt. Also: with a vr headset, the more you get out of it, the more value its has. Break things up by sampling the other offerings available (Racing etc) since using it for flying alone really is a waste of potential and is much more likely to reduce the headsets apparent value for dollar.
  5. A thing to remember is that there's a learning curve to get it right for any particular system. Don't try for half an hour and throw it at a wall if its not quite up to expectations. There are settings to play with!
