I live on a 40' sailboat so space is at a premium!! Which leaves me with laptop options only. I got a ASUS ROG G701VI-XS72K with i7 7th Gen 7820HK (2.90 GHz) and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080. Hope this works! I think I'm getting the Samsung Odyssey HMD.

 

 

What do you guys think?

Maybe ha ha! We've been out in some big seas and I'm fine... other times conditions are benign and I don't get sick but I FEEL.... strange. It's weird and hard to explain. We'll see what happens in VR. I'm excited. Might be strange when the storms come through and the boat is rocking while in VR!!

 

ADD: Really hope this laptop runs VR at a decent framerate. I hope so.

Will Silent Hunter 6 have VR support? You already have the motion "simulator". That'd be sick! (Quite literally)

If you are not happy with the performance of a laptop, another option could be my Mini-PC (look at my specs).

 

Had a laptop before, but wanted to have a more powerful pc without needing a big tower case. So the Thermaltake Core V1 with water cooling is really small and I did manage to get all the powerful stuff inside.

 

I am not living on a boat, even if I have just returned from a sailing trip at Sardinia. Really don´t want to think of the motion sickness you will get during bad weather :cry:

I am in complete awe. It took a minute to really get everything setup with the sweet spot and I wasn't even sure if I liked it at first but after a couple of days now I have decided that this is it. My trackir is retired lol. It's hard to describe what it looks like. That was my biggest question before buying a headset. It's true what people said.... no screenshot or video can show you what it's like or what it looks like. I don't think I'll ever go back to 2D. The graphics aren't perfect in VR but they are pretty decent and the immersion is..... Whoa!! If someone is on the fence about it I'd say go for it. Seriously, it takes a little tweaking and getting used to but it is flat out amazing.

I found that setting both the Odyssey’s and in-game IPD to my actual IPD made for a true-to-life sized cockpit.

I did change the force IPD but it messes up the menus. I can still use them but it hurts my eyes to try to focus on them. The game looks better but the menus are all screwy. IDK if there is a fix for that?
