I’m getting my first Pimax headset. I pre-ordered the 8K Plus but haven’t received an email yet. I would like to buy some simulation games like racing and flight sims but I don’t know the best ones for Pimax. I want to buy while the Steam winter sale is still on. Some sims have mixed reviews and there are lots of options. Is Project Cars 2 any good? X Plane 11? Asseto Corsa?
Also, has anyone received their 8K Plus yet?
Some Chinese got their 8K+ few days ago but never heard about other countries.
Mine 2019 favorit sim list : AC , Dirt Rally 2, IL 2 BoX, Elite Dangerous, Project Cars 2 ,
In past DCS but its slow around 45~50 fps with good setup, waiting for vulcan and other changes.
I would not invest money and time in X-plain 11 as MS FS 2020 is comming…
Moved your topic to Pimax Discussion.
For sims really depends what you like.
- Vector 32
- Vox Macinae (mech sim)
- WarRobotsVR (short free mech sim)
What type of sims are you into?
Helio you’re sure you know what sims means?
You have only mention arcade games
I didn’t care for PC2. I like the tracks in AC, especially the original La Mons. If you don’t have a steering wheel, imo AC has the best (non-VR) controller support: Tilt to steer.
My #1 reason to buy an 8K was to play Elite Dangerous, which is great in VR, but it’s a game you either love or hate. (There’s not much middle ground.) If you like to fly a space ship and want an entire galaxy to explore, it’s great. If you’re looking for a story and depth, you should look elsewhere. (I’ve played over 2000 hours in the last 4 years.)
Definitely AC. I also didn’t like PC2, driving is more arcade than sim.
DCS is mind blowing but yes poor frame rates in vr.
X Plane is totally amazing if you like flight sims. Some people find them boring, I don’t. Personally I’m not expecting Microsoft to be able to supersede it at all on their first release later this year.
I remember trying out Flightgear way back when. But you definitely needed to know the plane controls.
If you get AC, you’re definitely going to want to download Content Manager, Shaders Light Patch and Sol mod straight away. These take it to a whole new level.
Customers in Japan, U.S, and Canada received their 8K PLUS partially.Thanks
I live in Canada and pre-ordered on Nov 21st. Will I recieve an email when it ships?
If you like WW2 aircraft, Western, Axis and Eastern - Il2 Great Battles series is brilliant in VR on Pimax.
If you have a 2080 or 2080Ti, it will perform really well. I play Ultra Graphics settings on a 2080 with Normal FOV and it is great (64Hz mode, pitool 1.25 with SteamVR Beta on Auto).
Beats DCS in performance and graphics and other flight sims -well, just a bit bland for my liking although I do like DCS more recent jets but not the full detail clickable cockpits as I don’t have time to do intense training on each air frame.
Assetto Corsa the original worked very well, I have yet to play the new version - Competizione or what ever they call it although it is in my game list - just too busy over Christmas.
Competizione runs pretty bad - even in the menus where there is just a small empty room it struggles to Enough FPS on my 2080TI for smart smoothing- I guess my biggest los on a VR Game - sad
Indeed, I have all this installed and it’s a game changer.
And if you install this car you’ll literally fly;
