Hi, 

I'm starting to think about using other simulator programs with RacingCube, to get different kind of motion sensations. They don't need to be simulators as such, any fun and immersive VR application would do. So far, all I've used mainly are racing simulators. But what about other VR games or programs that work well with RC? Would you like to put your own favorite sim lists here (VR only)? My favorite racing sims are AMS2, AC, DR2.0. I know there are many plugins for Simtools, but user experience are needed (VR and motion).

- What are your choice on flight sims
- What about other types of vehicles
- Are there any offroad sims
- Train sims any good
- Roller coaster sims?
- Some other sims?
- Sci-fi games?
- Space sims?
- Any other?

Yesterday I installed MS Flight Sim as an experiment, and I was able to fly it for a few moments before I had to go on short holiday trip. MSFS already worked with RC and VR also worked. My expectations for MSFS are high. Here I am waiting to get back home to adjust VR settings and fly more with motion...🤤 I have only little experience with flight sims. VTOL in another flight sim which is really interesting for a beginner, but there's no plugin for it at the moment.

I tried a roller coaster sim demo too, but I wasn't able to patch it for RC. Maybe demo does not install the same way as a licensed version. It would have been nice to know if it's any good.

Some time ago I did try City Car Driving only in VR, but I couldn't get VR to work properly. Picture was a little wrong, the picture of the different eyes didn't fall into place. I don't know I if would be any good as a simulator, should I try to get it to work in VR? I didn't even test it with Simtools and RC. Also I was wondering if it would be possible to make something like this out of RC platform? That guy has made his DIY GP bike simulator.

RacingCube has been so much fun, and I want get more out of it! 😀  

PS: Best way to follow updates on plugins? Just to follow this list?

Happy holidays!

Hi,

let's go:

Racing:

AMS2: Best in VR and I like the physics of GT3s, Trucks and Caterhams. Indycars are brilliant

AC: VR brilliant, motion very good, the only negative for me is missing VR menues, you need to swap to VR desktop

In general: Less digital vehicles are matching better to RC4. Karting or F1 is not so smooth

Driving:

ATS and ETS2: Very immersive and good motion support

Flying

MSFS

Flyinside Flight Simulator - best in VR, very good motion

 

Of topic, as no RC4 support (as far as I know) - Derail Valley. Impressive immersive (indy) train simulator, hours of hours of fun (not if you derail a train 😉 )

You can check my videos too

Hi,

I agree with Michael, AMS2 is best in VR. AMS2 feels great with RC. Now that I got graphics sorted out, I have mostly driven AMS2. There are great tracks, something not found in other sims. Really good steering feel with DD1. My favourite cars: Porsche 911 GT1 98, MB AMG GT3, Ginetta 55 supercup. New Formula Ultimate Gen2 was fun to drive, after some learning. I also tested karting, made a profile for karts and I was quite happy with it.

AC is great too, but has only limited amount of beautiful, accurate tracks. My first experience with RC and I loved it. Yes, karting is a bit "poking" experience, since there aren't any suspension (in smallest ones). But I love Formula 1 with RC, especially Ferrari 2002.

Dirt Rally 2.0 is seriously fun and feels great with RC. I have been mostly driving with Subaru Impreza S4, I take setups from wrcsetups.com. Absolutely insane experience driving in Finland flat out! Landing from big jumps feel great (when tuned properly). You can achieve really good feeling to car suspension etc. Recently I have driven a lot with Opel Kadett GTE, I made a tuning profile for that, too. DR2.0 experience in Finland with motion is so comprehensive, that I'm totally exhausted after spes. stages and re-runs, trying to achieve better times!

Haven't tried Eurotruck with RC, but I have it too, will try it, thanks for the tip, Michael.

I did try Microsoft Flight Sim 2020 with RC, motion felt good with RC, but my VR setup has some kind of conflict, I can achieve only 30-30 fps with quite low texture settings, it does not look that good in VR. I have RTX3080ti, I think I should get better performance. That's why I don't have that much experience with motion yet, I'm trying to tune the VR first. I'm hoping to find some Nvidia setting and MSFS setting for a baseline, to sort that issue...

PS: I decided to go with car specific tuning profiles is racing sims. I switched to Engine Advanced mode, that way I can have different min/max tuning profiles for different car/track profiles. I record min/max values for every car and then copy and record new values for different tracks. In Finland there need to be different mix/max than in Spain, for example, to have good motion and not to be blown away from seat.

Some other "sitting" sim titles would be nice to try, maybe something with tanks, or Mechs or space shuttles.
