    Okay, given the passion about LMU that has its post completely off-topic with VR, let's do a little survey here and discuss it here too, so we leave LMU alone with this matter ;)

    VR is definitely a proper way to enjoy sim but unfortunately the hardware is still to costly and hence i believe only small chuck of sim racers have it. Also i think VR headset apart from price have other issues like motion sickness

    Used to have a Reverb g2, gave up and got triples.
    Might try again when 6090 comes out.

    For motion sickness, I can talk about it, since I was very young I get easily sick in the car. If I take my eyes off the road for just 30 seconds, I immediately feel nauseous. Even on the TGV, which is a train that doesn't move much, I need to look outside. The day I bought my VR headset, I played for 30 minutes (Assetto Corsa), and I felt sick for the entire afternoon. But quickly, I got used to it, and less than two weeks later, I could do barrel rolls in an airplane without any issues (IL2, DCS). Funny thing, I don't get car sick anymore; I can read a book on winding mountain roads without any problem now. :cool:

    New VR marketing angle: cures motion sickness :p (I'd buy it!)

    Expensive is not:
    I enjoy VR with a second hand reverb G2, on a second hand I7 4790K equipped with a second hand GTX 1080. A semi decent servo wheel probably will cost more than that.
    Obviously if you want to crank all to the top, you would need several thousands dollar equipment.
    About the motion sickness I don't have issues, the only problem is with karting, even 90 fps are too few in hard corner and fast transistions. With cars I have a bit of discomfort only when I go backward after a spin, but this is a non issue, I don't plan to drive backward any longer than 1 second.

    oh la la la, on reconnait un French Simracer ici non?

    more seriously, I have voted VR without a doubt, its my main Simracing usage right now despite having Triples and a 4k OLED TV.I have commented in that way actually on the LMU thread.

    I have never been motion sick, including on the TGV:p, so the day I bought my 2nd hand Q2 a year ago, it was a given that nothing would replace this in terms of immersion.
    Bought another 2nd hand headset, a PICO Neo3 Link this time, few months ago and I swear to Simracing God that doing PCVR without a DP connecting to your VR headset is borderline blasphemy:oops:

    :p
    I'm not sure I understand. Is it worse without cables? I know that some simmers (more on flight sims) add a cable when they have wireless VR. Does it lag?

    sorry I was on my mobile and I had already a long day over here in Japan.

    its just the pure Video being transmitted from the PC to your headset that makes it so good to my eyes.
    No compression/decompression crap. and with a beefy GPU, you can even increase the rendered resolution with some hacked drivers available on the PICO discord.
    so with the Pico headset I got for $170 and a RTX3080 12Gb for $400, I am in VR nirvana:D

    On the motion sickness matter, it's incredibly subjective.
    I have motion sickness on all instances - can't travel in the backseat of a car since I was a child, can't tolerate fair rides with gyro rotation, etc...
    Yet, outside of going in reverse, I had zero motion sickness when I tried VR and almost instantly adapted to it.

    I had sickness the first week too.
    The first day i only could drive 2 curves, but the second i could be 5 minutes, the third 15.
    In a week i could be 2h
    I've used 1 monitor, three, curved monitor, projector, even a huge curved projector and for me, nothing has the immersion of VR.

    Good to see people who had motion sickness , still can adapt and enjoy VR.

    I had motion sickness, especially when I was child and teenager so I thought VR might not be for me. But, surprisingly I have no sickness from VR.

    I ran using a 2080Ti and a Rift CV1 for years quite happily until I made a big jump to the 4090, G2 and 13th gen i9.That upgrade *was* expensive but a Rift is dead cheap these days and I'd still rather use one than the triples I'm staring at right now.
