F15 pilot position in VR ??

Hello everyone.

 

I mostly fly the F15 in VR and sometime the M2K . whenever i get in the M2K the pilot position in relation to the HUD seems always right , by the word Right i mean more comfortable to see the HUD and the switches around. Now wherever i get in the F15 the pilot position is always very close to the HUD that it feels very uncomfortable to see for example the fuel gauges because it is far down. also the pilot seems to be sinking down in the seat and the HUD is way up higher than his eye line of sight.

 

I understand i can adjust the pilot position using the CTRL+SHIFT+NP but i was wondering if thats how the pilot suppose to be in the F15 , Sunk down in the seat.

 

i googled some photo and most pics show the pilot head to be in the same height as the HUD and about i could say 2 feet away ( judging from the photo , ive never been in one myself )

 

also the Alt +NP 0 dont seem to save the new position for me all the time , it seems that every time i get in the F15 i have to adjust the position to my likening.

 

i wanted to know whats your input guys regarding this. do you adjust the position in the F15 frequently that you have to put it further back and up a little bit to achieve a close to IRL position. or is that how it suppose to be very close to the HUD also is the pilot head suppose to be lower than the HUD or in the same height or higher ??

 

in some pics i see the head in the same height as the HUD some other photo i see the pilot head little lower than the HUD .

It is the same in the A10.

 

I suspect it is because they are older modules that weren't designed with VR in mind. Therefore, if you sit in the "proper" position, the HUD isn't optimized for that angle and you can't see the entire HUD. So, in order to be able to see the entire HUD, you need to sit forward.

 

I think the newer modules have rectified this as they are designed more with VR in mind.

 

Just a guess, but seems logical...

When you hit esc in mission click on controls, you see on top left your plane. f-15 or another. scroll down there to uilayer hit it. set recenter as hotas button. Go back in game. Dive with your head, hit recenter button and come up. hahaha....yes you're ready to go.

Ya this is one way to do it or i just adjust my Head position using the CTRL Shift method. its just annoying you have to do it every time.

I was wondering about that. In the A10 I have to sit very far forward in order to be able to properly see the HUD but that leaves me in a position where it is very hard to use half the switches in the cockpit.

 

I've been unable to find a decent position that works for all, though I guess if I sat in a swivel desk chair it would be easier. I use an Obutto though so rotation to reach switches to the side and behind me is nearly impossible.

This initial position appears to vary from plane to plane. It's why I have dedicated a hat switch to head position.

 

Positions are separated by plane. What you change in a certain plane is only changed for that plane.

Like OP said, RAlt+Num0 should save the position. I always check by hitting Num5 again. If it doesn't move back to default, it's saved.
