On the other hand, the truth that playing space sims with a joystick can be a really fun option is great and should be shouted from the rooftops.

Redsniper, post your gear please ! This is exactly what I am hoping to do. I dont want to reinvent the wheel, what is your gear and I will take any setup advice you have. Although I might go with TrackIr instead as I am experiencing a rare period of having money
, I want to start somewhere, and your setup is it.
