Ted Hough - Jagdgeschwader I Application

Recommended Posts

What is your current Timezone:
US Central Standard Time (CST)

Do you have a Joystick or HOTAS?
I have a very basic Logitech 3D Pro w/ Twist rudder and plastic throttle tumb-rotor - luckily it also has hat-switch and base buttons for engine management controls and a weapon trigger. 

Do you have TeamSpeak installed, as well as a working microphone?
No Teamspeak currently as I mostly use discord, however I can and will install Teamspeak again - I used to use it for many iRacing leagues between 2013-2016

Do you have TrackIR, or a FreeTrack system for view control?
I do have a TrackIR and an Occulus CV-1 VR headset - it suffers from some poor quality head tracking issue that may be due to damage, though, so I would most likely be using the TrackIR instead.

What sims are you currently flying?
IL:2 Great battles series - Battles of Stalingrad and Kuban mostly, as well as pickup matches in War Thunder (A bit more arcade-oriented but not terrible) 

How did you hear about JG1?

Through the 2Old4Forza Sim racing community inviting me to Race in the JG1 Sim racing league - and then realizing that the community was mostly flight sim oriented and discussing my setup a bit with Britchot on Discord! 

Is there anything else that you'd like us to know?

I'm probably a bit more capable in the 4-wheeled vehicles than I am in the winged ones! I've been passionate about Military history and WWII era aviation for a very long time; have dabbled in many Simulators but never been part of an active squadron or done more than dipping my toe into some of the Larger IL:2 Great battles servers. I would most likely need some coaching to grow into a pilot that was helpful to the Geschwader rather than a more casual lazy-boy tumbling my way across the skies; but would love to learn and grow while still having fun with everybody! Due to the current COVID Situation I am laid off and my main source of income is now instructing racing students remotely on the simulators from home, so my schedule may be a bit odd and inconsistent at times as well; just to have that out front in case it's an issue.

Awesome, I've got some work today until about Noon US Central time, after that I'm spending time with the lady friend but I will ping you mid-to-late afternoon sometime - I would actually really appreciate some help with setting up what controls are necessary for engine management etc in the German aircraft and the more basic things like that.

Ted,

I'll be out for the afternoon / evening. But when I am online would be happy to assist, can you give me a bit of a run down on the setup you're using?

S!

Yes sir. Currently have for a flight setup a very simple rig.


Single 18-inch 1600x900 monitor w/ TrackIR
OR
Occulus CV-1 VR - (This has some damage and does not track head movement outside a narrow arc, so trying to decide between this and TrackIR)
Logitech 3D Pro Joystick w/ Twist handle rudder and built in throttle scroll.

That's really it. I have a button box for sim racing I could potentially use for flight sim engine management controls but it's glued to the wall next to my sim frame for driving, so I'll probably use the button maps on the 3D pro instead.

Kameraden,

What video card are you running, getting the visibility to the best possible setting is super important. Lose sight, lose the fight. Personally, I'd start with 2D and we can look at VR after as the game is trying to sort out some issues around VR Zoom. VR looks amazing, gunnery is much better and plane identification is a bit of a nightmare right now since 3DMigoto got nerfed.

You'll need to burn aircraft ident into your brain, check that link out.

Okay, I'll dig the track IR out and try to set it up and start with that - I haven't used it in ages and have been cleaning a lot up around the house so fingers crossed I haven't accidentally disposed of it.

I currently have a EVGA Geforce GTX 1070TI FTW Edition, it's got a boost clocker on it a normal 1070 doesn't so it's closer in performance to a 1080 card, really. Thanks for the recommendations!
