April Update: Xbox controller vibration

I hate it, I really do.
I mean the way the controller vibrates after the patch.
Engaging FSD is now like a prr-prr prr-prr-prr.
If someone of you is old enough to remember the old Trabant cars with their 2stroke engines - you will get my drift.

With the standard controller there is no way to set this except on or off.

Is there a deal between FDev and MS to make us all splash out on Elite Controllers to play Elite Game? Because it totally worked for me :)
 
I was thinking the same thing...what vibration...oh wait I have a HOTAS ONE. Strongly suggest switching my xbox brothern. It's literally a "game changer".

Just switch off the vibration. Go to ED controller options, go to miscellaneous, switch off vibration. I did it and I'm not missing the rumble at all. Spend your hard-earned money on something else, beer's good!
 
I find the vibration somehow useful so yea, it will be staying ON.
But since i got the Elite controller i can reduce the vibration intensity and make it less annoying, but I still find the change to vibration patterns to be uninspired, to put it gently.

I've considered a HOTAS, but i dont want to give away the leisure offered by a controller - so the Elite one is a rather nice compromise.
The taller sticks are making quite a difference and the 4 paddles are giving me a whole new range of bindings, including lateral thrust on lower paddles, throttle on upper paddles and bindings for fixed throttle % - i cant imagine how i was able to play for almost 6 months without a bind for 75% throttle.

Edit: and the Chatpad fits perfectly and it doesn't get in the way of the 4 paddles.

This.

Or, check your Xbone's controller settings. Re toggle vibration. Fixed.
 
I used a controller for my first year playing. I decided to try the HOTAS ONE since it was an inexpensive way to delve into hotas flying. Compared to the triple digit costs of some of the PC HOTAS set ups, the Xbox hotas was a bargain. You have a more intuitive feeling with flying with a HOTAS. I do hope you all, at some point, get a chance to try hotas flight at least. See you all in the black o7

I agree, the Elite controller is awesome for this game. I just wish that we could set hotkeys using the chatpad. Then I would be in gamer heaven
