  1. Luckily I don’t get motion sickness but I have to admit a low high speed flypast through the tight valleys of Syria made me slightly disorientated!
  2. Well this week I experienced my first taste of VR. Was offered a Reverb G2 on the DCS forum for a good price, and, well let’s just say after a couple of beers, I grabbed it! Immediately thought “oh no, I love my 40” 4K monitor”. Everyone said it transformed flight simulation and I thought “, yeah, yeah”. Anyway, the unit arrived super quickly from Jon and it was as if the unit was new. Everything perfectly wrapped even the lenses still had their blue protective films on them. Lightly used I only got to open it yesterday because of work. I was somewhat dreading the WMR and SteamVR dance - and a
  3. Landed in the world of VR…bought this off someone in the UK for a good price “as new” …. Cannot wait to try it out later this week.
  4. The problem is now I get so distracted I'm more likely to be shot down!
  5. Honestly, the clouds are visually incredible.
  6. Interesting! I remember when we implemented clouds in the alpha Falcon: Allied Force they were just billboards - but felt totally amazing at the time. Cannot wait to see how the weather systems will be implemented this year / next year in DCS. What setting do you run the clouds on? They seem detailed to me on ultra but perhaps they could be crisper! I’ll try not to look too deeply!
  7. .. courtesy DCS World.
  8. Totally bonkers - hopefully the new mining blocks will make the cards more accessible soon.
  9. Ah ... not not at the moment, it's just visual. Yes the 3090 are jut nowhere at the moment...lucky I ordered mine in November!
  10. Woke up ridiculously early this morning with hayfever and so to kill some time decided to spend it in the Glorious Clouds -- this time in the Hornet Promise captions next time!
  11. Thank you! Yes have to confess this is an amazing system - has to last me five years! The new clouds are remarkably unfussy when it comes to hardware....you might have to turn down from “ultra” on my video to say standard but they will still be very good. They have done a superb job with implementation. Desktop to cockpit is very quick...30 seconds maybe for an “instant action” flight.
  12. A quick and dirty video showing off the new clouds in 2.7. All i can say is that they are amazing - several presets for a variety of conditions and zero FPS hit in fact performance seems much smoother in this patch than 2.5.6. Amazing work by the developers.
  13. Cheers Mike. As for the machine, no not really. I keep frame rate locked at 60 for my screen and Track IR and that’s perfect for me ... I actually underclock the 3090 by 5 per cent I guess for longevity ... at 4K it would be doing around 120fps with occasion drops to 80.
  14. Hey - great feedback and yes interesting to see what reaction would be to no text labels. I’ll make sure they are on for the next one!
