I’ve only been flying AF2 for about 8 months; but man, it’s the best VR experience—hands down! Old FSX fan and short time user of P3D, but I spent more time tweaking, figuring out scenery/add on compatability issues, and worrying about upgrading computer hardware.
I switched to the Oculus about 8 months ago and plan on never going back to monitor views. Even after switching to XP11 on release, I still migrate back to AF2. Recently tried XP11.2B and spent about an hour and I was done. It’s just not there and cannot compare to AF2 VR experience.
I just wanted to say hello (new to forum) and thank the IPACS team for making this simulator a dream come true. I love flying airliners; however, I have found a new passion just flying the Cessna and Baron in VFR. As most of you know, if you haven’t tried AF2 in VR, you don’t know what you are missing.
I recently upgraded my old computer to the new 8th Gen i7 processor and 1080 GPU and this platform screams!
I anxiously await progress on ATC and some sort of AI and ground operations in the future. And my aircraft wishlist—the MD80 or variant of DC-9. But I have the 737 and Airbus to keep me content for a long while.
My biggest wish is for AF2 to keep what they are doing right. Great engine, features, planes, scenery, performance, and ease of use. It’s so much more fun to fire it up and fly without load time and performance issues.
Nor’easter is here in Boston, so you know what that means—time to fire up AF2 and roll out of Monterey on a warm sunny day. Thanks, IPACS!
