    When I saw helicopter, I suddenly remembered Desert Strike and cried in nostalgia ;_;

    Looking forward to see how that isometric feel will turn out :)

    Not sure i abandoned a similar working concept. Involving using data from Google maps in unity and you would do a fly over a roads map. I got the maps working but couldn't think of a way to utilize the headset other then limiting the fov. plus i didn't think i would be able to draw 3d building from lines 2d buildings on the map.

    I don't think you can get a true isometric view going on with VR. There would be no depth or perspective. Things that are further away won't get smaller. There'd be no parallax. Both eyes would see a vastly different image, which would be very disorienting.

    An ordinary top down view would be no problem. People often call a top down 3d games isometric, but that's incorrect.
    You could just place the camera above your game as you would without VR. You could make it so the player has to look down, or rotate it so the player will look at it straight on, or at an angle.

    That video reminds me of Seek n Destroy on the Amiga! Will be interesting to see how you get it working in a VR enviroment.

    yes! seek n destroy is one of the great inspirations

    The other option is to provide an ingame, inVR isometric window in a form of laptop. check the concept:
