    I love 180 degrees

    So I got wideveiw up to work, but I'm not quite finished with the adjustment.
    It's super cool to fly with a panoramic view of 180 degrees, approach have been somewhat easier.



    The layout is made of 8 computers and CRT monitors, which should be scrapped, graphics are not super becurse I use the onboard graphics cards, the CPU is 2GHz.
    I have not yet dared to measure the power consumption
    Sincerely,

    Claus

    I will see what i can do. I dont have a video recorder, but i have a camera that can take video thrugh a computer, but its loaned out and will soon come home.

    But for those who have not tried 180 degrees, either monitors or projectors, I can tell it's just an experience which I can recommend for your sim.

    Of course, my graphic can be improved, with faster computers and new graphic cards. But taking into consideration that I got all 8 computers and crt screens for free (computer scrap), so I am quite satisfied
    Sincerely,

    Claus

    Re: I love 180 degrees

    Great video Claus, I was just browsing some of the vendors sites and noticed poldragon have something in the pipeline using many screens, from the pictures it looks like a shell with a similar screen configuration to yours instead of the usual windshield and projector setup. http://www.symul.tatuin.com.pl/strona/index.php

    Problem with many computers become the synchronization of the weather / clouds and ai traffic.
