It does. I’m at 190% right now…maybe I’ll keep nudging it over and see what happens.
So this is actually one of the most fun things about VR headsets - rediscovering a bunch of stuff that is in your library as if you are experiencing it for the first time. I don’t care if it is X-Plane, FSX, P3D, or DCS World…when you go from 2D to VR, you WILL be loading everything up and going “ooooohhh…ahhhhh…that’s what it looks like…!” It’s insanely fun, but super unproductive. Particularly when you are taking the HMD off and on so you can take pictures through the lenses.
The next thing I loaded up was the Carenado Cessna 208 Caravan. I think this must be an older version of the Caravan…because the panel is nearly totally flat. The instruments are not truly 3D (just like some of their older models like the Cessna 185F). Not deal breaking by any means…but they just don’t look as good as fully 3D instrumented aircraft.
Next up is a really cool discovery for VR - how good the Piglet Pilatus PC-6 looks in VR. The gauges aren’t all 3D…but for a simple and free airplane, the cockpit presence is very, very good. It doesn’t hurt for my personal bias that I love bush planes…so this thing is great. It is just a super fun aircraft to tool around the pattern in or force into ridiculously tight spots.
Next up was the drop dead gorgeous TFDi Boeing 717. One of the nicest aircraft available for P3D without a doubt. This is a tight feeling cockpit and as a result, in VR it looks fantastic. You are close enough to most of the panels that reading the lettering isn’t much of a problem. The drawback is that this plane eats FPS like candy and it is very hard to enjoy in VR with the performance hit. Now, I am using one of the early builds…so I might need to update it and perhaps performance has improved drastically. As well, if I dialed back some of the scenery options I could perhaps gain back some FPS.
The Carenado Turbo Commander 690B is just gorgeous. Fast frame rates, superb cockpit, just altogether a sweet ride in VR and the O+…
Next I tried the Project Open Sky CRJ 200. I light modeling of the CRJ that just basically gives you a CRJ-ish to fly around. I like it. Simple and fun and makes me feel like an RJ pilot without having to learn how to be an RJ pilot.
As usual…the standard qualifiers…iPhone 6 through the lens…some artifacts due to me not getting the sweet spot lined up right…blurriness a bit because I’m simultaneously reaching for a beer…and some dots of light that are from the ceiling mounted lights behind me…and finally I’m not taking my WidmoVR lenses out every time I want to take a photo…so you are getting some nice genetic astigmatism there. Hope it doesn’t give you a headache.
