  1. Maybe this is to help facilitate a real world pilot using things such as Foreflight.com & Airnav.com (among many) in the cockpit?
  2. Still picking my jaw up off the floor... Take. My. Money.
  3. I think why we are at different levels of satisfaction is that I don't even consider FSX/P3D in this comparison. I consider XP to be on a different level all together and, fair or not, I'm comparing real world weather and experiences with XP and that's where my continual extreme disappointment comes in.
  4. I'm honestly stunned anyone finds the current XP weather "good enough". It's awful guys. C'mon now.. We all love XP, but let's call a spade a spade here.. Both the ATC and Weather situation are way short of where I think one could reasonably hope they'd be in 2018.
  5. The weather is very frustrating in XP, especially as a real world pilot who would like to train specific IFR approach situations and have the experience be very realistic.

    PC Building Again

    Thanks all for the thoughts.. Between GPU prices and my trying out VR again this week (Samsung Odyssey) and finding that it still needs way more resolution for me to enjoy Flight Sim in that space...I've basically have shelved any plans for a PC upgrade anytime soon. The GTX 980 + 4790k that I'm currently running does all that I need it to do gaming wise and I don't see that changing until I really do need a full rebuild with maxed out components for a future, higher rez, VR setup...which who knows...could be like 4 years out in terms of VR tech progression. Hopefully by then, mining or whatever is pumping up GPU prices will have moved on to some other technology or just have cooled off period.

    @HiFlyer Is that your video? Do you know the PC specs that user (or you) are using?

    Hi Tony - I will for sure report back.. I had a Rift with Flyinside on P3D VR a long time back and really really loved it...except for the resolution/SDE issues. From all I can tell, people love the Samsung WMR due to the slightly better resolution and also the "mixed reality" part really is misleading. It's a VR headset experience all the way honestly from what I can tell. In any case, simming in 2d was totally ruined for me by VR and so I really have missed it and am excited to get an HMD again, if for nothing else but just helicopters. Man...helo's in VR are outrageously awesome!

    Anyone have a WMR headset recommendation? I am drawn by their lower prices overall as I just want something to use for some flights here and there while I wait for higher resolution Vive or Rift. Curious which is the best WMR HMD for XP VR usage?

    Some advice on VR

    Is anyone using a WMR headset? any recommendations on which if so?
  15. I don't understand why Laminar doesn't use basically any of these mods themselves. Just about every one I see looks better than the default water.
