"As a result, I bought a larger 2k monitor and am considering going down the TrackIR route in the near future."
I am a BIG fan of the economical GrassMonkey IR Tracking systems. Small company, great customer service. I run a 32" curved monitor and enjoy being able to also see my surroundings and keyboard...... AND my coffee cup- lol
Caveat - I realize that MY PC hardware would never be up to the substantial demands of a real VR system even if I could afford one.
My IFR Flight starts with Schiphol Clearance Delivery and then hands over to Schiphol Ground to get taxi approval. Afterwards I contacted Schiphol Tower.
I'm using the FSX Add-on "Mega Airport Amsterdam" from Aerosoft.
As far as I can see, there is no way to search a file by it's file name. I do hope there are plans to bring this functionality back.
I run a website with links to freeware sceneries, many of them linking to flightsim.com. Unfortunately they are all broken now as they use the file names in the links. So I hope the functionality to search by file name will come back.
Reinstating the alternative download link will be useful to a lot of us so, if you haven't already done so, it might be worth your mentioning this in the new software forum -- the site developers are more likely to see it there.
I borrowed a Quest2 for a week and found it fiddly to put on and take off with glasses, a bit of a pain to set up and the performance and quality of textures was not grreat either. Furthermore, at times I felt quite sick (though people say you get used to it).
As a result, I bought a larger 2k monitor and am considering going down the TrackIR route in the near future.
The Reverb G2 is apparently a lot better, though quite expensive from what I've read.
VR will improve in quality and price in time, so I will probably reconsider at some point.
