I think my sodium count is high after viewing this thread. So much salt. (Also, should there be a salt emoji?)

There was a Strange graphic bug that was fixed with the recent NIVIDIA drivers. Be sure to upgrade if you see issues.

My results. Everything maxed at 4K. See a framerate of 100-160. Buttery smooth. 4K100-160.

Well that sucks. I was hoping for a game that was like the ship to ship battles and boarding action as presented in AC:BF.

Guess I'll be taking this off my wishlist.

You can get that in AC Odyssey. It's BF but with modern graphics. I don't think any other games outside of the AC series has ever done visceral ship-to-ship combat correctly.

Nope. Epic is no better than EA.
So get the Steam version?
Steam is worse than EA. At least EA still releases games, such as they are.

I think you mean Valve. Steam is Valve's distribution platform.

Does it support VR? I assume TrackIR will work.

IIRC, no VR out of the gate, but will add in the future?

Hard to say. I don't know if MS wants to dump money into something that has a small footprint.

How amazing would it be to add a boat DLC that lets you traverse the seas and oceans in this sim-earth from port to port? I would like one of the luxury yachts by Oceanco. I'd be willing to spend $40 for a Yacht DLC. Even more amazing while you're sailing you spot planes overhead that are piloted by players.

Given that they've done all the physics modeling, a yacht with a sail would be even more fun, since you'd have to do more than just point it to where you want it to go.

Yeah!

I have a confession to make. The link to Oceanco wasn't for you guys. You're super smart folks to find their site. No, it was for their analytical tracking. I figured if they get a blue spike of referral traffic, they might investigate, and it leads them back to this page where they see my comment and consider, "Hmmm... that's not a bad idea." They communicate with Microsoft to see how they can partner to make yachts DLCs a thing (especially yachts with sails). AFAIK Oceanco is one of the world's top yacht brands. Imma scheming. Move aside Star Citizen. I've got a yacht to sail!

This is exactly what they announced initially. Looks like there will be no flying planes while on planes.

Since much of it is streamed, I surmise the experience will depend heavily on bandwidth first and machine power second. I hope I'll see ~60 FPS on my machine:

CPU: I7-8700
GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11G
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4-2133

I thought the first season of the Orville was hit and miss, but the second season was far superior. Kxmode is right, it was also more serious, and overall I think it was a good choice to move in that direction. Redeye9 if you only watched the first season of The Orville, try out the second.
Thanks for reminding about The Orville S2. I forgot I wanted to watch that after a decent and entertaining S1.

Wait until you get to the episode where the Moclans discover cigarettes. LOL! Episode 11, if I'm not mistaken. The main story is also excellent as a holodeck morality play.

The Orville started as a spoof with a high dose of humor that is genuinely funny (e.g. "YOU WILL BE SILENT!" lol!). Then, by season two became more serious in tone. The show still has its humor, but it is more Star Trek now (which is fine by me). This Lower Decks is sad on so many levels (pardon the expression). I get what they're trying to do, but I didn't laugh once. I just found it tiring and cliched. But I understand I am not the target demographic.

One of the VCs overseeing this actually reached out to me a month ago asking me if I wanted to buy in.

It was odd. I've never had anyone do that before. Part of me was thinking of course. Another part of me was thinking I don't have that kind of cash (he didn't mention the minimum, but I'd guess high), and 17B seems like Epic towards a peak
