    MSFS2020 VR support is still in closed Beta testing, but instructions for enabling VR support have been released and those include instructions for SteamVR and Oculus, so fingers cross MSFS2020 VR launch support will include those and not just WMR as originally suggested: https://www.flightsimulator.com/instructions-for-launching-vr/

    One of the guys I fly with said the 22nd - they moved it up a day. The latest developer updates is here: https://www.flightsimulator.com/december-17th-2020-development-update/

    VR drops this coming Tuesday, December 22nd, with Sim Update 2.”

    Heard we get winter too but that isn’t verified in that update.

    Just about giddy for VR. More hearsay - the VR is excellent. The video at that link says they have been optimizing for even more speed and performance.

    3 days... ;-)

    THIS IS A MESSAGE to all of you that are preparing for using the MSFS2020 with motion. From the first moment I saw the videos of this great flight sim, I was wondering If microsoft will also be able to provide good motion datas -
    Friends, since today I know they do - and this in a quality I didnt expext at all. I am completely flashed. The motion feeling (ground and air) was sooooooooo smooth and present. For my setup, the feeling was much better than with XPlane.

    At this place I want to give my biggest thanks to @pmvcda for his great work with the mover interface! Mate, you are the greatest for us and make our dreams come true! Thanks, thanks, thanks!

    That is great to hear. I cant wait to try it! I expect this will be alot trickier to tune vs a standard race game.

    Hi again!
    I just wanted to share my experience of the first hours in MSFS20 with VR and 6DOF-motion and
    I can tell you, it was absolutely mindblowing. The views of mountains or islands in the sunset have been sooooo beautiful.
    I also flew three different prop planes and each one felt so different with much "personality"....
    this is Sim-heaven :)

    Totally agree! I had always hoped flight simulation would get this good but damn. It’s head and shoulders above anything out there now. It’s a little clunky getting it going, but now works great.

    If you see copperllama7783 in the air, cozy up and wag your wings. ;-) I won’t know who you are (I fly without icons) but am happy to form up for eye-popping views. ;-)

    No, not really. I'm using a Ryzen 7 2700x with 16GB of RAM. Works fine to me
