What's the VR experience like if you have reduced vision in one eye?

The only reason I can think of for now using a monitor is that instead of getting a zoom in VR, monitor users get a telescope.

I have a TrackIR sitting in a drawer collecting cobwebs now that I have the Rift S (sold the original Rift)

But I am desperately hoping for improvements and mass production of hand controllers that will still allow me to use my HOTAS in a more immersive way.

I'll give you another reason (my own) for not jumping into VR. Mine is a philosophical one: As a husband, father, son, brother, and friend, I'm very cognizant of the fact that sim-ing in general (DCS in particular) is incredibly immersive. Incredibly so. I could burn hours of my time staring at those pixels if I'm not careful and constantly exercising self-control. I don't want to take my head completely out of the real world while I'm "flying." At least with TIR and a large screen, I'm still able to tell what's going on around me (am I being robbed? is my house on fire? Is the baby awake? Does my wife need me? ) Living in a time/culture where I see couples and families out to dinner or at the stadium, all staring at their phones, not interacting with the world around them, I am very comfortable bucking the VR trend right now. I have no doubt that VR is WAY cooler and more immersive than my 2D pixel experience. And I'm happy to keep it that way. We all need to have our loved ones take a picture of us 'flying' and showing us how stupid and inactive we really look when doing it. While I'm over the Persian Gulf, grunting under G's that aren't being pulled, I'm really just sitting in a chair with a silly visor on, looking at pixels.

Just my 2 cents for the reason that I resist VR.

I hated VR when it first came up... sickness and all that bad stuff. Didn't like resolution at all... and remain on my 4K with TrackIR.

Lately I took the plunge and get the CV1. Elite Dangerous was the game that I used to train my sickness, then went in DCS. I still did not enjoyed it because the ugly graphics.

I have started to get in VARS pilon racing... in VR. And did that last year. This year I have tried racing on my monitor again... and surprise. I was not able anymore to complete a race. Get back in VR and suddenly I was top performing. Now I have the RiftS.

Conclusion: the 1:1 sense of environment is something that cannot be replaced. The image clarity ... there will be needed another 5 years to be on par with 2k monitors.

…of course, another reason to use VR is that it lets you cheese the DCS sensor logic and have a much easier time locking onto targets, especially with EO/IR weaponry.

short answer: No.

Too much money, not enough performance, not enough clarity. Hand controls, in every way, suck and break the whole immersion you are going for with VR.

There are at least 2 guys here with that. They both said it was worth it, you can try to search for the various posts.
