Okay, so I went with the settings that Captain Lucky dude suggested here (think I left a few settings a smidgen higher like texture synthesis on high), and finally I could play the game with my quest2. Flew a cessna 172 out of zamperini airfield in Torrance CA and flew along the coast, and you know what... it was very awesome. I was getting high 30s/low 40s, occasionally bouncing up to 45fps reprojection. Bit stuttery on occasion, but smooth enough to enjoy it. Not gonna bother with airliners just yet because that is guaranteed to be awful, but man everything was perfectly readable (sharp even, with minor aliasing on the numbers on the radio panel). Bit of motion sickness with turbulence, so need to get my VR legs back, especially with the poor fps. A hort flight in a bumpy little plane was enough for me tonight Normally I'm heavily CPU bound with my 2700X (and I still am in VR), but VR actually lets my 3080 stretch its legs a bit From the top this is FPS, Frametimes, GPU usage throughout that short flight You can see the fps creep up from the mid 30s as I leave the airfield and climb into the hills where it was mostly around the 40fps mark, along with my gpu usage and I become less cpu bound. I'd say that most of the frametime spikes were when I looked around quickly or banked the airplane quickly. the later end of things with the spikier frametimes was when the hills came up below me and I was only a few hundred feet over the ground looking for my old house.
