    My Motion Simulator:
    DC motor, Arduino, Motion platform, 6DOF
    Hi all, I'm currently working on a 6DoF build for a senior project. Right now, all the motors are working with the SMC3 Utilities feature, as well as within SimTools Game Engine axis testing.

    When I start X-Plane 11, all of the UDP network data is configured to send, and SimTools has applied the plugin SimToolsProfileVersion_1.PNG SimToolsSettings_1.PNG SimToolsSettings_2.PNG SimToolsSettings_3.PNG XPlane11Running.PNG XPlane11Settings_1.png XPlane11Settings_2.png XPlane11Settings_1.png patch. SimTools turns blue when XP-11 is running, but for some reason the motors do not respond to the motion data.

    I am not running the most up-to-date version of SimTools, and the patch for XP-11 is a few years old. Would out-of-date software cause an issue? SimTools is installed in a separate hard-drive from X-Plane 11.

    Please send any thoughts or ideas you might have. Pics are attached below.

    Please open the tuning center for x-plane and see if you have Max/Min settings for the game.
    You can also check on this page if you have incoming data from the game.
