Interesting how the article says they are using Oculus Quest’s but all the pictures are the Rift 2 I think (apart from a Vive Pro further down).
As an aside, the general rule of journalism is that if you know the subject to any depth then there’s always lots of errors and mistakes - it sort of makes you wonder about things you don’t know about when you read them.
But…but… VR just isn’t ready for prime time yet…
Quote from the article.
With all this in mind, DCS users can feel even more confident in the game’s fidelity. If it is good enough for A-10 pilots to learn essential skills, it has to be pretty damn good.
Often when I read about something aviation related, I shake my head. When Mrs. Microbiology reads about bacteria and viruses, she shakes her head.
Yes, I have wondered if someone, somewhere, always shake their head, when reading a news article…
Considering it started out as a desktop trainer for the USANG A-10A to C conversion, it does make sense.
Sims rule! The world is finally catching up to little ol’ us!
Funny you mention that…
Hey, maybe in a few months time I can talk about it…
Don’t know if this is the same video posed here a while back (didn’t watch this one) but they were also using the PontCntrl gizmo. Made sense.
What’s ironic is the article refers to DCS (mutliple times including the title) as a video GAME. The dreaded G word vs S word.
Hoggit fans be like…
Showed that YT fan movie (“DCS Fan Move V”…hold on a sec…here again) to a former Eagle Driver last week. He said, and I quote, roughly,"…got me kinda excited there for a minute…". Without any qualifiers, like, “for a game”, etc.
Think it was the 1v1 part at 2:49. So, even they kinda get it.
Oh boy… Yeah.
