    By truck motor, do tou mean pickup, full-size, or semi? Thought the same motor type that Thanos used in his joyrider would suffice.

    Hi, I am a new member from the UK, not too interested in motion rigs as would not have the funds, but am more interested in transducers which it looks like will be supported in V2, although motion rigs arent why I am here I imagine it would be the ultimate toy :)

    My Name is Leo,
    I hope that it's possible to simulate driving a car up to 100% with motion Simulator and HTC vive :)

    Welcome @leonard-erde

    You have come to the right place, there is a really active community here who freely give of their time and expertise.

    So far only a few games have Vive support, like DCS, Live For Speed and War Thunder, but other games like Project Cars plan on implementing Vive support.

    SimTools supports motion for those and many other games.

    If you are interested in building a motion sim then you will find plenty to get you started in the FAQs, from design software, dimension of sims, to PSUs, pots, motors, JRKs, Arduinos and Motor Monsters and more: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/

    Hi,

    i am still a member since a few month, but now i want to start with a 2-DOF Seatmover and hopefully i am done with it until july, when my oculus arrives.
    I think this is the right moment to say hello the first time

    Hello my name is Mike,
    I am hoping to build a 2/3dof soon,
    looks like the right place to learn how to do that

    Hello my is Zeaan. All the way from South Africa.
    I am building a 2DOF 360 deg simulator for X-plane 10. Looks like im in the right place here. I need help reading the Pitch and roll data from X-plane.
    I Am using an Arduino. I should be able to cover the Arduino coding, feedback and hardware (Although I will appreciate any advice on that as well.)
    I am already reading the values from the serial monitor input (the one from arduino IDE) and turning the servos accordingly and providing feedback that stops the servos again. If I can substitute the serial monitor values with the ones received from X-plane, the simulator should work after only a few tweaks.. I hope...
    Any advice will be appreciated!! :)

    Hi. Members

    Sorry to tell you all.

    I introduce myself using Google Translator because I'm poor at English.

    I'm very interested in DIY Motion Simulator.

    So, I bought a Arduino Kit and I have been studying Arduino, electronics and programming.

    But, I think it's tought on me. I don't always have the time for many things. (I am just a salaryman.)

    So, I want to learn a lot of knowledge in this website.

    Thanks all.

    Hi, I am Thanasis from Athens/Greece. I am playing sims like ac, project cars, dirt rally and fsx.
    I want to built a 2 or 3 dof simulator. I am searching in the web but it is a little bit confusing for me till now.
    What is the order, how to start, what hardware, design etc.
    Is there someone in Athens who could help?
    Thank you.
