I cancelled my order for the Tobii Eye tracker which I wanted to replace my TrackerIR with and bought myself a VR headset instead since MSFS 2020 now comes with VR.
I love to fly the A320 Neo.
Now with VR, I am smackdab in the pilot’s seat of a fullsized cockpit. Everything seems fullscale sized. Buttons and knobs are so lifelike that you tend to reach your hand out to operate them. Landing light switches and other toggles hang shiny and tantalizingly real from the overhead panel. You can’t help but want to reach out and flick them. Its a bit disorienting when things are visibly there but you can’t touch them. The glareshield is a proper solid ledge and when you peer over it your viewing perspective changes naturally. Nothing is skewed like 2D pretending to be 3D like with the TrackerIR.
Even though my monitor screen has better resolution, the blue panels and the footwell looks so much more real in the headset. I could have sworn Airbus recycled plastics from old Citroen BX dashboards.
The view of the world outside looks so real heightened by correct perspective of distance and movement relative to inside of the cockpit. Terrain has properly fleshed out form and elevation while topography undulates below. Mountains, hills and knolls are fullsized and look realistically menacing even when they are far below and don’t appear threatening on radar.
I am sold on VR for Flight Simming.
