Default The Office of Wags

Not exactly an cockpit, but I get this question often, so I thought best to make a little post that lays out my system. I use two in fact (always good to have a back up). This is also handy for in-office demos and when one systems is tied up with rendering.

Primary:
i9 9900K OC'd to 5.1, 2080Ti, 32 3200 Mhz RAM, and 3 TB of SSD space.

Secondary:
i7 6700K, 1080Ti, 32 2800 MHz RAM, 512 SSD space.

Yes, they are both beasts and set up for Oculus Rift with Touch.

I also use an assortment of sticks and throttles from Thrustmaster, VKB, and Virpil.

Monstertech as kind enough to send me desk mounts. Great stuff!

Thanks for the post Wags, can you tell us anything about the Hornet stick like how many buttons, how much further forward does it sit that the Warthog stick?

What percentage of your flying is in VR?

Very nice!

Are you planning on doing more of those videos you used to do back when NTTR was being released? With the webcam and all that? Seriously, I enjoyed those live streams!

Mr Wags,
Thanks for sharing. Since you fly VR, I would like do send you a VR cursor control device, called PointCTRL, for your evaluation. It doesn't require any DCS code to implement, and is seen as an HID mouse and Keyboard. I have been developing PointCTRL with this community's input, specifically using DCS. I am still a few weeks away from shipping out some production prototypes to DCS centers of influence, so just let me know if you would like one.

Thanks,
Miles

Sorry, but Thrustmaster should field those questions.

Varies based on the project and VR tasks. From 10% to 50%.
