  1. My simpit (not finished)

    Thanks! Thanks! And I will update the post when I've gotten further.
  2. During my summer vacation of last year I started working on my simpit. I've yet to complete it but I'm planning on doing that this spring/summer. What I wanted with this build was to be able to just sit at it and browse the web and the next moment be playing SC without moving and connecting my HOTAS and rudder pedals. The thing with SC is that it's an FPS and flight game which means if you are playing with a HOTAS for flying and mouse and keyboard for FPS, something's always in the way. My design of this simpit makes it so I have everything ready for when I want to use it. My HOTAS is always connected and it's not in the way on my mouse and keyboard and vice versa. As I also play driving games from time to time I also wanted to make it easy to get into driving mode. After using the simpit for a few months I have things that I need to change that are driving me crazy sometimes but the main design is done.

    Support for steering wheels would be awesome.

    That right there with the keyboard and mouse is what I wanted to get around for games like SC. Having a place for everything. The best thing about the way that you have done it is that there is no problem with leg room while using pedals.
  5. My simpit (not finished)

    The mouse under the keyboard is actually very comfy as I have my Logitech G13 keyboard next to the mouse. My hands are usually at the same level to each other. What I want to change is the height as I right now bump my knees into the underside of where the keyboard and mouse are when I use the racing or rudder pedals. I did not realise this until I actually sat down in it. I would like to make it more configurable so that I can find the best position for everything and for when others are using it.

    I've now uploaded my own build.
  7. Well, I'm a little late, had to go to the bathroom. Great article, it makes me even more exited for the 3.0 release.
  8. ANTHEM? What do you think?

    I'm exited, it looks amazing. I actually liked Andromeda (and Inquisition) even at the level of quality it had, so from what I've seen from this, I'm interested. And remember folks, we have not really seen anything yet. Don't make a decision yet on how you love or hate this game. The only thing we've seen is a bit of gameplay and what the graphic hopefully looks like. The story might actually be incredible, or just dirt, wait and see.

    Bought it, going to try it today.

    From one idiot to another, good luck, we believe in you.
  11. Well hello there fellow members! I just wanted to make you all aware of this VR title. VR has not had any real games that I've been interested in until now and that is why I've been holding back on buying a Rift. Now that this game is coming out I finally felt that it was time. Star Trek Bridge Crew places you in one of four roles, Captain, Helm, Tactical and Engineer. This does not only look like a really fun game to play but also a really good game for us members to play together as a crew with specific roles. The only real negative, and positive part at the same time is the fact that it's a vr game, so of course it's only for those in possession of a Rift or Vive headset and controllers. The game is released on may 30. On Steam http://store.steampowered.com/app/527100/Star_Trek_Bridge_Crew/
  12. Star Trek Bridge Crew

    Well I can always hope for the best.

    As I already have a 4k headset I think the tech is there, they just have to invest in it. Right now the focus seems to be freedom, having a PC on your back letting you walk around without having to worry about cords. You also have to remember that you will need a really good PC if you want to play games in 4k, 90Hz in VR. The headset I have right now is only 60Hz which actually isn't that bad, I clearly notice a difference between my Rift and the Pimax (4k China headset) when it comes to FPS and how smooth it is but 60Hz is still fine, I've had no problem with it. If the big players (Oculus and HTC) decide to use a 4k 60Hz screen and keep the way you can move around with their products I think they will have a really good product on the market in a year or two. We might see something new at E3 next month, really looking forward to it. Good to hear! As I already bought it I'll see you on the bridge.

    The way you can smoothly control the ship in all directions is incredible. If CIG is still working on a SC HOTAS setup, they should really take a few notes from this build.
  15. track IR alternative

    What kind of integration are you working on? I'm intrigued.
  16. Star Trek Bridge Crew

    Oh yes it's expensive but all new tech is and this is the first generation, if we want a second gen then we have to support the current one so that the developers keep improving and making it more mainstream. So if you like the idea of VR, support this gen by buying it (if you can afford it of course) so that they can lower the price and raise the quality. I do have a China made 4k headset and the resolution is fantastic even though it only supports 2k res at the moment. The problem is there's no sensors for moving your head except turning it. But with this I've seen how good vr can get when it comes to image quality. I giggle every time I take a seat in a cockpit in DCS because of the realistic feel to it.
  17. I'm getting one! Don't know when but I will own a 1080ti even if I have to sell my neighbours kids. I wonder what people pay for noisy kids these days?
  18. Building a simpit

    The problem with not changing anything is all too real. I bought an adaptor for my racing pedals which would give me the choice of using them as racing pedals or rudder pedals with the flick of a switch but uhm, it did not work the way I wanted it to. That means I have to be able to switch between the two units and doing it in an easy way. The design is getting reworked in my head right now and my economy does not allow a larger deposit right now anyway.
  19. Building a simpit

    This is awesome! I'm drawing my plans for something similar myself at the moment. I'm going to try and make it so that I don't have to change anything going from flying to racing to fps, or at least the smallest changes possible. Really cool build, hope it will serve you well!
  20. Osiris: New Dawn

    Just want to make you peolpe aware of the game, it's on steam and well, it's another survival title. What makes me interested in this is the fact that you are stranded on a planet with alien wild life. Some makes you laugh and some makes you cr*p your pants, especially when night comes. It feels a bit like being in the movie "The Martian" but with aliens as large as a small house or a small skyscraper, a skyscraper that swallows you whole. Gather resources, build modular bases and defend yourself against the terrors of the night or other factions. You can do all of this in multiplayer and the developer is updating the game on a daily basis right now. In the future you will be able to build spaceships and travel between the planets and the moons of a solar sytem. Different factions can exist in the same system but be located on other planets or moons. I've been playing this in singelplayer for a few hours but the game seems to favor co-op as you sometimes need a lot of resources to move forward in the game. Having 2 or 3 more people might make this game great fun to play. Steam user name: Fatie89

    Is your Steam name Ridge Lock?
  22. I KNOW it's going to be great.
  23. I would like to say I can't wait but, like everyone else, I have to. Damn exited for this one.
  24. Osiris: New Dawn

    I took a look at a video about the vehicles but I don't want to see to much as it's much more fun to see it yourself first.
  25. Osiris: New Dawn

    It's still a pretty game and this is the first moon\planet you can be on right now. When they expand to other places there might be other biomes.
