VR Scale [IPD] Accuracy - vs Real Life


Recommended Posts

I would like to know from a real F/A 18 Pilot, what is the accurate scale in VR for the hornet.

 

Devices:
 

HP reverb G2 - G2

Vive Pro - VP

Valve Index - VI

 

currently I use:

G2 - 68 IPD - in game default IPD

VP - 70 - in game default IPD

VI -70 - in game 73 IPD

Its relative how IPD and scale is perceived.

I use for the Hornet and Viper DCS VR Options IPD 56. The default value (65) makes me feel a giant in the cockpit.

Yeah it's all about how you perceive it.

 

My best recommendation is to turn on the pilot and adjust so that the pilot's feet/knees feel about like they look like where yours would be.  It helps if you have a bit of a cockpit so that you're "feeling" like your legs are out front of you like that too...

 

If it's off it will kinda feel like you've shrunk or grown taller somehow...

The correct IPD relates to YOUR specific eyes, how far apart they are, how they work with your VR goggles, how they lenses in your VR goggles work and if they are fixed or movable. So many variables. Your IPD settings are individual to you.

You basically adjust the ingame IPD setting till you get something that "feels" right. Putting the pilot body on can be useful for getting it feeling about right. For reference the DDI/MPCDs in the Hornet at 5x5 inch.

Thanks all. I took some measurements from the real F/A 18 cockpit and it matches the default 68 IPD for the G2 in terms of scale. I basically used lifted the headset and compared to a cardboard cutout of the cockpit.

 

I sit pretty now 🙂

IPD is a variable set per person, and by default it is obtained by DCS via the VR API of your headset. The calibration procedure of your VR headset is done to obtain this, but you can measure it yourself using a mirror, an app or by asking your optician.

 

This isn’t something that you ask others, this is something that is very specific to you and your facial dimension. IPD represents the baseline of the stereoscopic system that is your eyes, and as you know, the distance between your eyes depends on your own measurements, not anyone else’s.

Yeha that's correct. What is strange is that in dcs one ipd setting doesn't match all the aircraft. So one setting works for the a10 but no the p51. That is due to an error on EDs part.

Huh, Works fine for me. The A-10 cockpit feels massive, which it should do.
