2D is soooo 1980’s for cockpit sims anyway, IMO.
But, it has its place and those that still prefer 2D. We can have both. 2D should always perform better as there’s less for the system to do.
Youtube content is hard to watch when recorded in 3D for instance; I’m watching it in 2D so a 2D display makes sense; the image isn’t stable. I imagine the day (likely soon) that there will be YouTube3D - the content is 3D so you watch it with your VR gear on. Shoot, likely there already is something out there…
Some say in VR you are less competitive but that’s not my thing (if it was I’d push for a separate ‘VR Division’, maybe?).
And, IMHO, doing any ‘work’ in 3D is a pain right now (writing code, emails, creating/testing missions in DCS, etc). But we’re not talking about “work”
Agreed. I LOVED the G2 when I first put it on (~6 months ago?), compared to the O+. “Wow, I can see again!” was the response. It’s wearing off. But I won’t go back. Now I want MOAR! Wider FOV, that eye-tracking thing. I’m never happy.
Oh, and a 6DOF motion platform would be nice. Fortunately for my wallet I don’t have the room. My Haptic Feedback thing helps, a lot…
Just fired up DCS last night (after several weeks away for, err, other distractions) and it was amazing. Again. Got jumped by some bad guys while enroute to break their stuff. Did a dumb thing (overloaded, trying to get that shot I just knew I could make) on a MIG-21. The Haptic feedback allowed me to stay on the ‘edge’ in the Hornet, without having to look at anything (cuzz I was looking UP and BACK mostly). Great experience. I need to refine this system.
