    VR Update this weekend!

    Hi all,

    This weekend, we will be releasing an update on a number of exciting player focused features coming to VR implementation in IL-2 Cliffs of Dover Blitz/Desert Wings Tobruk!

    The background is a sneak peak at one of them!

    Hint: Don't get fixated on one element of the picture.

    Can you guess what it is?

    Obviously the Best Team.

    Looks like the Spitfire cockpit is now 3D ready perhaps?

    Would be awesome to see a video demo.

    Is this just about VR or does it include the other visual updates previously mentioned: 4k textures; reduced popup; new weather ?

    Yes.

    IIRC, VR implementation was announced along with other improvements - hence the question as to whether there will be an update on those, too.

    Re: VR Update this weekend!

    In the picture is a VR helmet and a TrackIR. Will you combine the two devices so that you can see the cockpit in VR 3D but use the TrackIR to control the direction you look in, like many of us are used to? So you don't have to literally look over your real shoulder to check six? That would save some old injuries getting stressed. I know if I was in VR and had to turn around in my chair to look behind, I'd never do it. But using the scaled head movement in trackir-style while the aircraft is in 3D would be mind-blowing and make me totally reconsider my position regarding purchase of the hardware.

    Pretty good Bondi.

    The Track IR isnt involved. Innocent bystander in the pic

    Also, just to be clear, this is an update on VR progress, not the introduction of VR.

    The word 'update' is confusing and maybe we need to find an alternative word.

    I had to correct a poster on the Growling Sidewinder video review of our game today - they posted in comments that we would be enabling VR support on the 18th!

    They wrote:
    "It's getting VR support this weekend (Sept 18th)!"

    Re: VR Update this weekend!

    Yeah, also saw some posts here and there with assumptions before Pattle made the clarification posts.

    When I saw the name of the thread and the screenshot I was tempted to think it was the patch. Going through the text in the post made it clear to me it was an update on features necessary for VR.
    And I’m also rather up to date regarding TFS wip posts, so didn‘t really believe it would be released this suddenly.

    I understand though that others that don’t track CloD’s progress as closely and/or can‘t understand nuances of the English language could be misled to think it was the update itself.
    Or also really didn’t care to read the actual text and stayed with the title, as is very common these days.

    As one person commented on Steam, people are reading what they want to see.

    In hindsight I should have had WIP in the title..

    Re: VR Update this weekend!

    I think "Devblog" or "Progress Update" are probably the best terms to use going forward to avoid confusion.

    I'm stoked to see the progress that has been made though! Keep it up, TF.
