Request a free DIY SimTools 2.0 license

To qualify for a free license:

  • You must be building a true DIY motion simulator. (Not built from a kit or purchased from a simulator seller, a model simulator does not qualify.)
  • Have a unique build thread or Showcase in DIY Simulator Projects. (The thread should show some effort, which means it should show progress to the testing phase.)
  • Have been a member of the community for at least 30 days.

The demo version of SimTools 2 has a fully operational copy of the Live For Speed plugin, specifically for the purpose of testing: https://www.xsimulator.net/simtools-motion-simulator-software/

Installing SimTools 2.0 on a domain: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/installing-2-0-on-a-domain-read-this.9526/#post-122320

SimTools 2.0 Input Settings - The difference from SimTools 1.3 to SimTools 2 in setup is that in the Interface Settings instead of axis defined like this <Axis1> it now has designate grouping for a or b in SimTools 2 for each axis assignment, like this <Axis1a>

Backup 1.3 - Before you remove 1.3 backup this folder by making a zipped copy - C:\Users\(Your User Folder)\AppData\Local\SimTools

Then if you ever want to go back, simply install 1.3 and replace this folder with the zipped copy.

You can also look up your SimTools license number, just log into SimTools.us: https://simtools.us/member-login/
Use the email you purchased the Licenses with, and if you don't have a password, click reset password.

Be aware that SimTools may trigger a Widows Trojan warning, it is a false positive, see the explanation here by the SimTools developer @yobuddy: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...r-as-trojan-win32-rundas-b.10708/#post-138738

If you are using Google Chrome and there is a message that the download could contain malicious code, again it is a false positive, please ignore that message. Its a false positive error which only appears in Chrome.

SimTools (motion software) and Xsimulator.net (community and community developed plugins) are two separate entities, see here for details on the relationship and revenue arrangements between the two: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/simtools-and-xsimulator-partnership-explained.275/

A SimTools license only covers the SimTools software, it does not cover access to plugins.

Access to plugins can be purchased with forum activity coins or real money: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/coins-and-how-to-download-plugins.2/
