Advice Please: Nummy Hunkered In, Getting Ready to Blow Cash on good Sim Computer

Post by Nummy »

Hi Chaps:
As a former world traveler with nowhere to go now, and hunkered down
behind his monitor in Texas, El Nummo is getting ready to blow his cash
on a good IL2/BoS flight sim computer.
The concept is 'Top of the Line' for 2019, as TOL for 2020 is financially out of the question.
Comments and advice about what works well and what doesn't, gratefully acknowledged.

Cheers

Budget?
In selecting the motto... 'all for one and one for all'... I have done so because it expresses what should be the creed to every Fighter Pilot. Never forget that you are an essential cog in the wheel, and if you break or fail it will let down your brother pilots, and the grimness of war allows for no such weakness.

That might be beside the question but if you wait a few more weeks prices might drop significantly. As unfortunate as that may be ...

Hey Gosho, a few weeks I will wait . . . .

Currently, no VR Prang, but it is the desired goal.

My Thousand League Boots being put away in the closet for the CV duration,
seems time to amp up the flying.

I'll look again in April . . . hmmmm.

Thanks Chaps

I'd buy now before supply lines disrupt even more and cabin fever causes even more folks to buy new computers. I'd buy a VR optimized rig and a VR headset from the get-go.

Sparky, I agree on VR and optimized rig.

Don't be surprised if your first VR flight makes you queasy. Limit it to a few minutes. Each day it will be less problematic but don't push beyond early queasiness. Within a few flights you should have no more problem and the increase in immersion and realism will bar a return to a flat screen.
