    I bought some Ginger Nuts a few days ago. One of my favourite biscuits, especially when dunked in tea. B)

    Mmmm, I love ginger in all its forms.   Never needed it for VR sickness though, because I've never gotten VR sickness. :tongue:

    But now I could really go for a bag of crystallized ginger..

    Careful around really strong ginger products on an empty stomach, though.  That's not a good time. :grimace:

    Always worth a repost.

    How lucky you are :D I do not only get VR sickness but often, also first-person game sickness  :s maybe I will get used to these types of games after some time, but right now it's pretty brutal

    Just don't do too much. Simulation sickness comes from the brain believing that your body has been poisoned because what's happening in your ear isn't happening in your brain because your eyes are seeing motion that isn't there. So your brain thinks you're being poisoned.

    The best way to build up a resistance to simulation sickness is to do the following:

    1) Play in VR until you START to feel a little odd or uncomfortable and then STOP IMMEDIATELY (pressing the Oculus button or the pause button in-game is the easiest way to do this.

    2) Keep your headset on and relax yourself for a minute or two.

    3) Remove your headset and have a LONG break, preferably overnight but at least a couple of hours.

    4) Repeat steps 1-3.
