How does VR change sim racing?
It changes sim racing by allowing the player to be in the car with 360 degrees of vision.
Controls are often specifically designed for VR, with motion controllers giving you a fully realized virtual experience.
Some players wear the headset, some players use their existing gaming monitors, and some even set up their own custom rigs that a
llow them to sit in an environment that most closely resembles what is shown on screen.
Personally, I found it easier for me after long periods of gameplay when using my monitor rather than wearing headsets directly on my head because there wasn’t as much strain on my neck muscles over time. But this is just personal preference! Others may prefer to play more regularly throughout their day while wearing the device regularly so they don’t have to take any breaks. It all just depends on the person’s comfort level.
What kind of wheel/pedals should I use for VR?
There is no one perfect answer to this question because everyone’s setup will be different. However, some popular choices include the Thrustmaster TX, the Fanatec Clubsport V2, and the Logitech G29.
One of the most important decisions you’ll need to make when constructing your VR racing sim setup is what type of wheel and pedals to use.
There are a variety of different wheels and pedals on the market that range in price, quality, and features, so it can be difficult to decide which one is best for you.
Some popular choices include the Thrustmaster TX, the Fanatec Clubsport V2, and the Logitech G29.
For example, some people may prefer using a wheel that has 900 degrees of rotation while others may be okay with fewer degrees. Some people may need force feedback to feel like they are actually present in the car and others may not care about this at all.
A popular choice for pedals is the Fanatec Clubsport V2 which offers a variety of metal pedals that can be purchased separately depending on your preference and needs or they can come paired to provide consistency within your setup. Though if you are only using the base version of this wheel, you may need to invest in a separate set of pedals.
