After TX-Gunslinger posted his setup, I'm wondering what everyone else is using. So what does your 'cockpit' looks like.




Here's mine.

Are those donuts or onion rings?

Man alive, I'm hungry. Brb.

Also, I hope you move those pedals on to the floor or you're a hobbit. (No offense intended if you are a hobbit)

My snacks? Neither. They are 'sushki" http://tdkondspb.ru/d/15383/d/1150983848.jpg

And I'm not a hobbit. Picture's angle doesn't allow you to see depth too well. When I sit on a couch, there's enough room for legs.

Yep, it's always 100%. So change settings in windows to lower that number.

Argon: Are those mountings for stick and throttle custom-built? Or does someone sell stuff like that..?

sascha, they were once sold by Interface Dynamics. You can't get them anywhere sadly anymore... There's an old thread with ideas here: http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/3162870/Mounting_Hotas_on_Office_Chair.html

Wholehawg, that's a very neat pit!!!

Sim,

Do you put pedals on the floor when gaming? If so, does it scratch the floor?

Nah. I just keep it on that little magazine stance. There is a very adhesive rag that keeps rudders in place.

How do you find using an office swivel chair with rudder pedals? I hate it, even if you get the wheels to stop moving the chair swivels slightly when you kick the rudders. I grab a dining room chair when I fire up Flight Sims.
