Arg... You mean I can't catch a plane and throw it at other planes in multiplayer?

yes this is great news. you will certainly need a good internet connection. I think most people do, but I know a few that still live far away from town so they have it on their satellite which is not always great

This is great! I was hoping it would be like this. Would it be more taxing on the internet connection than ordinary multiplayer? All the extra rendering would be local... no? Or would there even be any extra rendering beyond what you normally do to see other pilots?

Also assuming you can be in VR while other pilots in the room are on a flat screen?

I look forward to trying the VR! I've got an Oculus waiting for RF8 to arrive!

(meh;"This forum requires that you wait 60 seconds between posts. Please try again in 14 seconds.".... I'm pretty sure my knifeedge account is 11 years old now. Is this really necessary? I type 100+wpm...)

Not much 3D Terrain?

The comparison chart indicates that RF-8 only has 5000sq mi of 3D Terrain. Is there an option to add or upload more terrain?

What is the path of the RealFlight products? Are RF8 and RFX different products with different future upgrade paths?

I have RF7.5 with the Interlink Elite contrller. Is that controller compatible with with RF8?

Cheers,
Joe

Probably a typo. I'm sure it has the same Sierra Nevada terrain as all of the other versions of realflight has. No you cannot add additional terrain, but it is possible to model terrain as a object. Look up Mt. St. Helens on the Swap pages.

I borrowed a friends Rift VR set since he prefers another brand for his gaming. RF-8 is giving me 80-110 fps using VR on an older i5 PC. It's really cool and doesn't give me the nausea FPV flying did when I tried a persons quad setup out.

I am really looking forward to VR. I could spring for the Occulus Setup now but I really want that Odyssey HMD setup from Samsung. I just don't want to be the guinea pig and purchase it only to find it isn't compatible with Realflight . I Fly FPV with a couple quads, I don't get the nausea that some people have, but during FPV I deliberately fly slower than I would if I was flying from the ground.

I got word that My copy of RF8 has shipped. I should have it next week.

ME TOO!

I have it from Samsung tech supp that the Odessey does support OpenVR... but that's not the same as an All Good! from someone who actually tried it.
