    All about AZURE

    I (or Microsoft) never said there was going to be a one-time purchase option. What I said is Microsoft never said there wouldn't be one and they didn't say it would be ONLY subscription based. Its to early to say it will be a sub only option.

    VR for exercise

    Well, for what its worth Beat Saber is on heck of a work out. If you let out your inner child and really get moving to the beat you can and will loose weight. There is a guy, who has since lost 200 pounds using pretty much beat saber. Here is the article: https://www.vrfitnessinsider.com/robert-long-looses-138-pounds-playing-beat-saber-and-hes-still-going/ They have mentioned other game that can do the same thing but they are mainly boxing games. I own Beat Saber though, and yes....30 mins of just that can be a really good work out.

    To be perfectly honest where has MS said it was going to be subscription based ONLY? I haven't seen that. What I saw was that it would ALSO be available using the subscription service. I think a lot of you are freaking out for nothing. I don't think Flight Sims have the numbers in terms of users to justify a paid service, however, there are a LOT of gamers that might use the product if it was offered in the subscription package. As for cloud based stuff, sadly it seems to be the way things are going. Get some good internet security and be Net smart and you should be fine and dandy.
  4. I'm pretty sure this is a glitch but I can't figure out how to get rid of it. I like to fly general aviation aircraft, single prop for now. I get in the Beachcraft Bonanza 60th Anniversary and when I look left out the window I notice it has 2 different shader types. Its like the window is split diagonally from upper right side, down to mid-left of the window. It supper annoying and quite jarring to the eye. I've manage to figure out that the issue is coming from it thinking my head is going though the window. If I poke my head outside the window (which is creepy as hell), it goes away. If I pull back inside and lean to the right it does the same thing and looks correct. Is anyone else having this issue? Could it be just this plane? Any idea's are welcome. I'm new to VR and have searched the net for this issue but I've not been able to find a thread discussing it.

    I think the way GamePass will work, is, you get the base game for free while you subscribe. Any expansion, add-ons, ect will be a separate one time purchase and NOT included in the GamePass sub. This is how other game publishers generally handle this sort of subscription based service. I'm sure it will be available as a stand alone purchase as well via digital download and possibly at local retailers or even via Amazon. It's to early to know for sure if there will be a physical box and even then it might just be a code in the box to claim the digital download version

    I seem to remember Dovetail having an insane about of DLC that was fairly expensive.

    I would love to see Train Simulator again. Man that brings back some great memories!

    I hope they also have a decent flight planner built in, or allow something 3rd party to be used. There is so little information and so many questions. I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas, fantasizing about his present before unwrapping it to find out if it was everything he dreamed of or a ..... total let down. (which I hope this is NOT) In all honesty, I would fly in a world of cartoon (or Anime) like graphics as long as the flight models were accurate, the weather was amazing and things looked like there real world counterparts. I can imagine the load on a computers system wouldn't be near as harsh with something like that.

    There are a lot of good concerns here. I am curious how it will handle VR and hope they do that justice for the immersion factor.

    OMG! I just saw this at the E3 press conference. I am so stoked! MSFS was always my goto simulator and I'm so happy they are bringing it back. As long as they stay away from nickle and dimeing us to death I think it will beat any competition.
  11. I'm just now setting mine up. I hope yours gets delivered soon!
  12. Thanks @HiFlyer for posting this. That was a really good video and run down of a few of the flight sims I have or am interested in. My Rift S should be here today and I can't wait to take it for a spin. I got my first taste of flight simming through a Odyssey+ and I want more!
  13. Getting mine tomorrow. I'm so excited. I demoed xplane VR with an odyssey+ and it was rather blurry to me (had my glasses on even). I did notice the 'sweet spot' everyone is talking about and it was small in the odyssey. This post and a few others I read helped me make up my mind about the Rift S, so I thank you all for that. I did have issues attempting to get P3D VR working though. It kept placing me outside of the plane for some reason. Also, for those that may be interested, the video that sold me on it was this one:

    @pracines Thank you for that link, I have saved it for further use.

    @Chock That's an interesting product. I imagine there is a hot key to disable/enable those markers while in flight? Good to know I don't need to buy those books. I'm usually decent as far as figuring things out but if I get stuck Ill be sure to PM you for some assistance! @Rob Ainscough I'm going to check that out! Seems interesting for sure. My flight simming is going to grow. I want to start out with GA, single engine props, move up to twin props, and finally move into jets and Heavies.
