  1. I got my Pimax 5k+ a few days ago and it really is amazing, completely lives up to expectations. The cockpit readability is mostly OK however I do have a few issues mostly on MFCDs and DDIs etc, (even with this improvement) though also on the odd switch or dial label. As I understand it this is mostly an effect of the following three settings: rendering quality in PiTool (currently set to 1), application resolution in SteamVR (currently set to 80%), and the in game pixel density (currently set to 1.4). I am curious how exactly these settings work together and in particular how they can be adjusted to improve readability of cockpit text. i7-8700k 2080ti 16 GB ram Thanks!
  2. Honestly, they are put together just terribly. My trackir is a patch work of cable ties, blu-tac, and elastic bands just to hold it together. Recently ordered a Pimax and I tell myself it's for greater immersion, but deep down I know the real reason...
  3. Has anyone had any experience using the Vive hand controllers with Pimax?
  4. Is there any word on whether this will include updated AI behaviour or simply better radio communications with the player?
  5. I have seen Youtube videos about it, for example
  6. What are peoples' thoughts on the Pimax 5k+ vs. the 8k for DCS? I have heard some people say that they are switching from the 8k to the 5k+ since text on e.g. the HUD and cockpit instruments is clearer.
  7. Alright, I think the main issue here is that I have assumed that CAS and TAS are the same, it seems I misread a few definitions. If that's the case then we are discussing a semantics issue and not anything really fundamental. If we take the definition as given by Fishbreath above then sure CAS is a better measurement to use. I think we are all fundamentally agreeing with each other but using different terminology for the same thing. P.S. of course the real limit is temperature, this isn't my first rodeo :p , but that's not really the issue I'm getting at.
  8. Is it not the case that calibrated (or true) airspeed, TAS, is the IAS accounted for calibration errors, air density, temperature etc. and wind? In other words, in zero wind conditions, it is the same as GS. This means that even if I am in a region of very low air pressure my TAS will not change compared to a region of very high air pressure, my IAS will. Surely then IAS is the best measure of dynamic pressure (which is what the pitot tubes and hence IAS are really measuring) and hence of airframe stress?
  9. Forgive my ignorance but why are aircraft structural limits in terms of calibrated airspeed? Wouldn't indicated airspeed make more sense since that's a more direct measure of how much air is hitting the airframe in a given time, and so a better measure of the stress on the airframe?
  10. I am a little confused by something in today's (28 Sept.) newsletter. It states "we conducted calculations for the wings and stabilators in XFLR5 software...with a non-viscous flow model." I have no experience whatsoever with the XFLR5 software, but a very brief search revealed that it is designed for working with low Reynolds numbers (although, as in all too many cases, it does not provide a rigorous definition of what it means by a "low" Reynolds number...). Does this not invalidate the non-viscous flow assumption?
  11. The sun is just ridiculously OP right now ED really needs to fix this, just unplayable.
  12. The only Swedish I know is Automatisk Fart Kontroll...
  13. I've noticed this with the formation lights on the A-10C (although it's actually kind of useful for providing cockpit illumination at night since the flood lights STILL don't work properly).
  14. My two monitors are 1920x1080 on the right (my main display) and 1440x900 on the left (for the MFDs). The bottoms of the monitors are aligned (so there is empty space, so to speak, above the left, smaller monitor). HawgTouch (Monitor Profile).lua
