    "We are also committed to supporting existing peripherals and home cockpits via an updated SimConnect." (https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/07/30/microsoft-flight-simulator-steam-track-ir-and-vr-support/)
    So I would imagine, there is at least the possibility to connect SimTools with MFS 2020. If there is a quick way to tweak the plugin I cannot tell ;)

    FS 2020 will need to be released to properly develop a plugin.

    Hey Guys, so I just got the Logitech G923 Wheel, that has truforce, which from what i have played with it makes the 2 motors in the wheel behave similierly to two transducers (left and right).
    Would it be possible to create a plugin or an addition to simtools to detect the wheel as a set of transducers that are seen in simtools?
    This could allow these "truforce" effects in older games.
    Anyone think this could be possible?

    Hello, I am a university student developing a motion simulator for construction equipment at a university in Korea. Using Simtools, we are planning to create a motion simulator for construction equipment control training. If possible, could you create a plugin for Construction Simulator 2015?

    Conclusion: I request the Plugin for Construction Simulator 2015.

    That is somewhat of a niche game, worst case you may have to consider making your own plugin for it: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...lugin-for-simtools-2-0-api-documentation.131/

    If anyone could have a look at doing a plugin for the excellent Re-entry space simulator https://www.reentrygame.com/ that would be amazing. Alternatively though its a little old now, Orbiter would be fun http://orbit.medphys.ucl.ac.uk/

    Re-entry is the more basic of the two physics wise but has far better immersion and graphics with VR too. It is able to create a log file with some simple data which could be used(example attached), I guess these values should be visible in the memory somewhere.

    Creating plugins takes time and skill, and we as a community rely on a very small number of plugin devs to provide both.

    Plugins tend to be created for titles with large simulator payer base and preferably where a telemetrey api is available, as for the most part plugin devs are a bit over the pointer based approach, where the plugin gets broken with every update, the exception is the wonderful work done by @Wagnard to maintain the Elite Dangerous plugin.

    Blockbuster titles, like Microsoft FS 2020, do have plugins created pretty quickly.

    For niche games, particularly if they don't provide telemetry, there is the generic Joystick plugin: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/joystick-plugin.6160/

    Thx, i saw that one before, but i guess it works just for that moment when you actually push the axis on controller but for quad (drone) it will not came back to "0" after u left it.

    Thx anyway, i tried to read how to make a plugin but man thats next level.

    Hi guys.
    Very glad to be able to find plugins on this site for my favorites old racing games like GTR2, GTL and Grand prix legends.
    Maybe somebody already asked but is it possible to make one plugin for racing games on MAME like Out Run, Dirt Dash, Pole Position, Ace Driver Victory lap, etc ... I mean just one plugin for all racing games in MAME with basic effects.
    Thanks
