An absolute MUST!!!
Interestingly, we went through the same issues the VR goggles have, when starting to fly with night vision goggles in the '80's. We started with the full vision restricting goggle worn by tank crews. Then created "cutaways" by removing lower half of the frame so could see inside the cockpit, eventually going to just the NVG binocular tubes attached to the front of the flight helmet. Hmmm, wonder if can create cutaways with a cheap VR set?

"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.
