I spoiled myself already quite a lot, thanks to all the Youtube click-bait.
Regarding the mods, I will try some in the future, when I pick up subnatica again. After my initial run within beta early 2016, I now did one as 1.0 came out but I screwed it up with the aurora. (it contaminated the whole area) For the next try I want to spare me some of the most tedious BS. I'm still collecting Ideas what mods to build in, since it seems they are coming out pretty rapidly now. But I guess I will need some time to figure out what does work for VR or not. If you have some that are working good, I sure would like a list. The sorting mod I've already seen on Youtube and its definitely on my list.
Also I imagine the 8K could ramp up the experience even more. (if the performance doesn't totally collapse) I'm still undecided if I want to wait that long. But this was one game where the VIVE PRO did really shine, so it' truly tempting!
But at the moment I play mostly Pavlov and other shooters since it has multiplayer and I have some toys that really keep me hooked for now.
Like I said earlier, I underestimated haptic feedback way to much until now. Regarding subnatica for example I play with the idea of using a climbing harness to kinda emulate a swimmers positioning. Could be even more frightening if you go fully nose down as you dive into an abyss. I already have a hook in the ceiling that can support me + a half cow.
