My resolution is only 1920x1080 [only monitor i got]
[FYI I tested all these settings in VR and flat-screen mode]

[All targets were fighter sized, between altitudes of 600m to 1300m]
[I was using a Mig29S for its TWS2 mode so I didnt have the radar locking a target but could watch the radar position so I had a general idea of the target location but no real 'fix']



Preload range is maxed, because Im running 64gigs of RAM



For textures I tried Medium and High with no detectable difference, it only seems to have an effect on the instrument panel.


Visible range I tested between Medium and Extreme, the range the fighter would be noticable didnt differ.


Antialisaing [whatever its called] is off since I cant see any difference with the setting.


Shadows on High, because the shadow 'pop-in' seems to happen at a range of 500-1000m [not certain of that]


I know Im going on about this a bit much but Im having an easier time spotting ground targets than a sky silhouetted fighter at any range.

I have to say first though that I really wish there was something that could be done with this as I do love the product the DCS crew have developed. But as for VR, I just can’t seem to get around the visibility.

For example, in another flight sim I fly regularly, the visibility is obviously limited due to VR but where I find the difference is one is still able to spot. In fact I can generally spot other aircraft sooner than non VRers because of the smaller resolution. Where the disadvantage comes in is in identifying. The image won’t be as sharp therefore more challenging. But that really isn’t an issue because of the zoom mod that gives you 10x zoom.

With DCS, I find there’s no identifying or spotting. Instead, the way the game is rendered I just don’t see anything.

Again, im very impressed with DCS and am thankful for this amazing product. This is by no means a rant but rather me expressing where I feel they could make some adjustments. I will continue to buy their modules and support the team although it’s pretty difficult to fly in VR.
Oh dear, someone else who hasn’t set up his VR zoom in DCS.

Ive had zoom setup since I first got VR 2+ years ago, but detection distance doesnt change much with it zoomed in.

The sole and only problem is the difference in max zoom level between flat screen and VR. I don't see why we VR users must be so restricted?
There's an addon on "that other sim" (which has natively the same illogical limitation) that permits to go to better max zoom levels.
There must be some kind of limitation (artefacts are visible when using aformentioned addon, but if that's the reason for putting a limit, I'm not ok with that) to VR, but a proper zoom level is a game changer and eliminates all difference between screen and VR users.

This is how it looks for me with the Rift. Is this ok?
Contacts are 2 F/A-18s at 5 miles.

I never see stuff my wingmen see.
What settings can i change to get better visibility of air objects?

There's not much you can do to really improve this
