    Hey guys , recently bought a Formula 1 fiberglass car (1:1 scale ), and I want to mount a 180° screen (maybe 200°) around the car. I want to play AC with this setup.

    looking for a setup similar to this (with big screen)


    Anyone familiar with this kind of setups or 180° screens?
    What software you recommend for warping AC game around the screen?
    How many projectors 2 or 3 (recommend projector) ?

    Thanks in advance!

    I have the Icarus 180 Avengar from www.simpit.co.nz
    You can get it with their own warping software. I use 2 short throw projectors. There is the possibility of Icarus 270 with 3 projectors as well.

    Here a first test on mine:

    Marcel that's an amazing setup. Tell me more about the warping process , is it difficult to get it right ?

    What projectors you use?

    And also, maybe a stupid question , but I am new to this 180 screen stuff, if you look to your right or left of the screen do you actually see the side view of the car , or its just the front view of the car but warped in a 180 screen?

    Thanks for your time

    I actually have a oculus rift CV1 (amazing experience ), but it doesn’t fell “right” to use it seated on a f1 fiberglass, because you miss the beautiful a “real" car that its around you. Maybe it just me LOL. But I really feel the oculus is better for use on a playseat.
