The main problem is that the body expect physical effects of moving.
That usually because we’re driving a lot of our real lives–so our brain is really good at counteracting the driving related forces.
With flying (or space faring) is much much less obvious.
As Aginor recalls well, as far as I fly I’m fine in VR, but place me at ground level and I become immediately Mayor of Puketown, Vertigo region.
Perhaps FFB helps in this regard. A motion simulator in VR must be fantastic.
Just thinking that I’m probably sounding like an arrogant arsehole in this thread with regards to VR. Really, I’m hoping that you guys can find a way to overcome the uneasy feeling, because it does seem to make me a little quicker. Need all the help that I can get at my age. Maybe a good alternative is a 3 monitor setup. All of the pro drivers jumping to esports seem to like this. Perhaps part of maintaining their brand.
I could use some Apollo 13 engineering help, using just what I have handy, but I need to find a way to keep my pedals from sliding around. I tried the most obvious low tech solution, just placing a board against the wall. Unfortunately the back edge of the pedals that come with the T300rs are angled so the board just slides right up over top of it.
I have hardwood floors to deal with so the normal pads just slide, putting a small rug there just slides, using it on regular carpet… you guessed it, it slides. My go to solution has always been to step down on the thing really hard while i drive with my left foot to try and hold it in place, so any suggestions would be appreciated.
I’ve got the same joystick bolted to the side of my simpit! Pots are a bit spiky now so I re-calibrated with the computer neutral point forward of the physical spring center point (otherwise it would just keep triggering), but other than that it works great.
Good old Attack 3 Logitech joystick! The thing is 16 years old! I didn’t even know I had it until Mudcat mentioned that people were using old joysticks as E brakes. I opened my old junk closet and there it was! LOL! Velcroed it to my desk and now it’s my hairpin buddy.
There is no place rigid enough to bolt it to on my 12 year old Playseat Evo, which spent most of its life connected to Playstations. It went into storage when we moved, but got dusted off with the launching of @Mudcat’s DR2 league. I’m having so much fun, that I’m getting serious about building a good sim pit.
Sorry that I have missed a few rallies lately. Yesterday afternoon some boxes from Sim-Lab showed up and I began building an 8020 rig. Their ordering system is not very sophisticated, so no tracking info or warning. I ordered this on the 9th of April, and it just showed up yesterday. UPS dropped it on my front porch without a signature. I guess that saved a few bucks in the long run. Building something like this. Needed an 8020 rig to mount some Fanatec gear. More details as it comes together.
