Naw man im pinching pennies already. Besides, flying is what my rift is for. I don't feel a strong desire for the touch controllers. Perhaps in the future, after a CPU upgrade and some other expenses that are higher on the priority list.
The landscape tweaks are very much worth it. DO try them. Even in my lo-res DK2 it makes a ton of difference. The distant terrain becomes more defined, less foggy and that makes navigating by eye much easier.
I have AA turned off and supersampling to 1.2. Rather leave some GPU power to spare in order to ensure a smooth framerate.
Man dogfighting in VR is fun. I used to suck at flat or vertical scissors, even with TrackIR, but with a HMD it's easy to put a burst in as he crosses. Also split-S is fucking hair raising. My gf tells me I sound like im in a rollercoaster when I fly VR.
Anyway, oculus tells me two work days....
