VR Feature Requests

Two features requested for VR: 1) A feature that is the opposite of the Gaze Selection. The cursor would be controlled only by the mouse and would not be affected by head movement. In a complex cockpit with a lot of switches/controls, it is hard to hold my head steady enough to select controls relia...

Re: VR Performance Optimization

Any comments from the LM development team on this? I'm really interested to see if there is a way to optimize CPU usage in VR mode to utilize all of the cores. Right now it feels I'm limited to using ~25% of my total CPU possible.

VR Performance Optimization

I fly exclusively in VR now thanks to the improvements with v4.1 (thanks LM developers!), but I've been trying to tune my system to get good performance in areas with complex add-on scenery and airline traffic. I wasn't having much luck with changing settings semi-randomly, based on the assumption t...

What is Limiting Performance?

I am trying to optimize performance in P3D V4 for VR use. My system is pretty robust (I7-7700K CPU, 16GB memory, GTX 1080 w/ 8GB VRAM). With my current settings I can get ~18-20 FPS in VR with PMDG 737 at a default airport (KSEA). I have frame rate set to unlimited. The experience is smooth near def...

Lighting in VR - left eye only

In VR Virtual Cockpit, I get cockpit panel lighting and landing lights in the left eye only. Dynamic lighting is on. I've seen this with several default aircraft (Beech Baron, King Air, Mooney Bravo)

Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Thanks,

Bill

Keyboad commands for view selection?

First off, thanks to all of the development team for P3D V4! I'm impressed with the new version and how well it works in VR. I'd still like to see that cleaned up a bit more, but it's a huge leap from the VR support in V3. One request that comes from switching between the regular screen and VR mode:...
