Could anyone shed some more light on what this tracking mode is?
I’m an Oculus rift user mainly for flight sims. If I back the 8K kickstarter, do I need lighthouse tracking as well for 6 DOF tracking, or is this mode sufficient for flight sims? The other tracking option it mentions is just ONE lighthouse for 360 tracking, so why does the kickstarter come with 2 base stations?
The pitracking i believes allows laser tracking from piplay outside if steamvr. 1 base station may work for 360° but you may have blindspots ie moving in a room (think nolo ceiling mount). 2 base stations will ensure better room scaling.
The base stations from pimax i believe with support both pitracking & steam mode.
Final answer for flight sims 1 base station should be plenty for sit down flight sims.
Ok, I had to find out for myself what PiTracking is.
Please next time someone tells you you are not making sense take it as feedback because nothing you said made any sense at all and you didn’t really seem to know that Lighthouse or PiTracking is, meanwhile OP (and myself) were actually curious to what it actually was.
Matthew posted in the facebook group that they only support “steam sensors” which means that PiTracking has been removed from the PiMax, most likely for the reasons I stated, it was unnecessary. It seems to also be removed from the kickstarter, I believe it used to be mentioned there.
So there we go, PiTracking, doesn’t seem to exist anymore.
Interesting question, would like to know too. At first I thought it was their ‘inside out’ tracker but after reading some more of their comments it seems it’s not. From what I understand there are 3 tracking possibilities, two are outside in (pitracking and the regular lighthouse tracking) and then there’s an inside-out tracking system
However my point still stands that not all folks will install steam. Which simply means Steam tracking mode will add laser tracking outside of steamvr.
You have done nothing but adding confusion to this thread, please.
Steam tracking mode is Lighthouse and SteamVR, if they have any other “mode” it’s optical in which all “laser tracked” hardware doesn’t work. There is no way to “add” more laser tracking outside of valves lighthouse tech to their receivers without it being valves lighthouse tech.
Making your own tracking solution that works exactly like SteamVR for I don’t know how many millions, making hardware and software, and then implementing them next to Valves totally free system that does the exact same thing is just not what anyone would do.
