Not to get you guys hyped up anymore but 2.7 is like an entirely new sim. I just flew from Al Khaimah down to Al Dhafra in the viper and I’m just stunned at the beauty of the new lighting, clouds, etc. The water, reflections, waves and lighting is all new. Also, SSLR seems to not kill fps the way it did before. There is a new option for SSAO as well. I maintained a solid 60 fps on this flight with just a brief dip into the mid 50’s when I got low over Dubai.

Here are my settings:

VR seems good so far, no impact from the clouds and on Standard setting they don’t seem to ‘twizzle’. Will try the ULTRA :cloud_with_lightning: setting now.

As well as the System menu changes above, a few new toys in Special and VR:

Anyone used the VRFree thing?

Some new VR Mirror options to play with

Oh, and the VR ReShade Clarity shaders still works great, so that’s good.

I tried the mirror checkbox that stretches your 2d left eye image full screen

I updated to the latest Nvidia 466.11 and it all seems ok.

Streaming in VR - keep your head still! :wink:

One initial observation is that it makes a lot of the existing missions look a bit ‘darker’ as the cloud cover is heavier and causes darker shadows on the ground. Takes some getting used to.

I am thrilled for this, the Jug being my favorite DCS warbird to date. It’s just a magnificent rumbling ■■■■■■■ in VR :+1:

Nice change log!
Will start the DL soon.

Do lights (like the Huey’s search light or plane landing lights) now light up water?

Downloading now. My poor old R295x2 is shaking already.

The sim runs basically the same if not better. The new clouds looks gorgeus. Loving it. I had two hangs during loading into mission and one CTD so far. Running repair now just to be sure.

Yeah, the lighting is nicer and the performance in VR seems comparable to 2.6 using all sorts of VR patches. Just futzing around over Syria and it looks spectacular.

I think they did a good job on this one. :+1:

So sorry, I had lots to look at. Its beautiful and smooth, the 3090 is the weak link according to FPSVR :slight_smile: Also I crash on the Viggen harbour strike on Normandy, same place crashed twice, anyone care to try to replicate. Its once the first flights bombs detonate

The stream was great, just wasn’t expecting VR - it worked really well.

The clouds look great! But…my clouds seem to fluctuate, for the lack of a better word for it. It looks like the clouds are at a separate layer than the rest of the graphics and they move up and down, slightly. Anybody else notice anything like this?
