Early on people were asking will they make it the same etc.



Listening to the wealth of knowledge on hear from real pilots they didn't rely to heavily on the hud for the same reason. It wasn't fast enough.
Yeah I figured that was it. The level to detail is really nice. It's a real by the instruments jet so the HUD is not the best thing to use.

I had this thought when I first went VR in the Hornet, it reminded my of sitting in a glider.
Luckily someone told me about the Force IPD option which actually just scales the world around you. I can’t advise on a correct number but have a play with it until you get that “this feels right” moment.

What this guy said. Change IPD it's in the VR settings. I let mine set as default and it works great but it really is a setting you need to set with your own eyes etc. If you wear glasses you need to account for that too.

Thanks! I'll give it a try. I've messed with my vive's physical IDP. Didn't know there was a DCS software one too.

To clarify though, I just meant comparatively speaking to the F-18/Harrier pit. Even the RIO feels like it has tones of room. The pilot position feels akin to the toes in a lady's high heels, wearing a shoe two sizes too small.

In all honestly I've just been enjoying flying it, so I'll fiddle with settings/eye position sometime this weekend.
