Andy visited the cave tonight to sample VR for the first time. He flew a variety of aircraft in FSX/Fly Inside before switching to DCS:World.
For a final giggle, being that he rolls his eyes when I talk about my various sims, I put him in a Kenworth in American Truck Simulator! Never shall he scorn me again! I suspect I’m in trouble when Andy goes home and tells his wife he’s buying a VR headset 🙂
While Andy was flying I fired up the Arrow for another flight around Korea. The weather was still pretty awful, so it ended up being an IFR return to Osan. It was nice flying over unfamiliar scenery, having to use charts and navaids to navigate.
After Andy left for the night I did a little VR flying; taking the Bell 206 from Christchurch over to Okains Bay on the Peninsula for a great night-flight. VR in FSX is amazing at night, with really vibrant lighting effects. The moon reflecting off the Pacific Ocean looked fantastic, and the moonlight bathing the cockpit as a really cool effect. I look forward to more helicopter flying in VR!
