  1. What field of view do you all use?

    I normally use 82 but thought I'd try out 40. It's so much cooler on 40, you can get right up to the back of other cars, just have limited view and the car appears to turn a hell of a lot faster.
     

  2. What size monitor and what resolution?
     
  3. I use at least 110 when I can.
     
  4. My FOV is set to 80 on a 22" 1680x1050 monitor. Feels about right for most cars, see some of the dash and some of the rearview but mostly the road ahead. I also upped my glance angle to 70 degrees and that has helped quite a bit seeing cars next to me, I can tell a lot more easily when I can has overlap on me going into a turn.

    Now I just need a triple head setup...

    Just default FOV for me
     
  6. So you like driving from the back seat :p
     
  7. 78 here at 22" 1920*1080
     
  8. 120 FoV @ 19"crt 1024x768
     
  9. Same, in 1920*1080 :skywalker:
     
  10. What is Field of view? Mine is 100%, 1440*900
     
  11. 85 since Mikkow tips here:)
     
  12. I'm using default.
     
  13. mine is 53 in 1920x1080
     
  14. It's not about resolution, it's about how big your screen is and how far you sit from it, vs the FOV you have.

    Anyway, I have a 24" 16:10 monitor that I sit about 70cm from, I am guessing (I'll measure sometime), and fov 57 is about as low as I'll go. It's still a compromise - I must have some peripheral vision, but it's still not low enough either: stuff seems smaller than they really are and things appear further away than in real life. But no where near as bad as the higher fovs people use (hello fish eye lens - looking through the wrong end of binoculars :D ).

    The bigger your screen is to your eyes (i.e. how much of your actual eye field of view it takes up) the higher the fov can be.
     
  15. FOV 120% in 26" 1920x1080
     
  16. for wide-screen resolutions the best FOV is around 60-70 depending on car and seat position taken to the back

    FOV can be adjusted with CTRL+LMP (or at graphical options)
    seat position can by adjusted with LMP (or by assigned keys)


    some examples with FOV 100%, 75% and 65%
    at 100% you have very big and unnatural fish-eye effect

  17. A good FOV can help a lot, thanks for very useful post Misiu
     
  18. iRacing has a calculator that suggests FOV. I used that suggestion for Race On as well: 67 FOV with a 200cm screeen with 145cm distance to eye.
     
  19. Is it built into the game or can anyone "use" this calculator?
     
  20. I use FOV115 on a 24" monitor with a res of 1900X1200.

    The lower the FOV the higher the sensation of speed? Is that right?
    As well as more precise control?
