    Hi,
    We have built a motion platform based on SimTools and HeXpod.

    We have some issues with that acceleration is not simulated. (By pitching backwards)
    How could we fix that?
    See picture of our settings.

    Try the FLyPT plugin, or if you want to go deep on settings, try Mover: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/flypt-mover-interface.13464/
    They both have motion cueing algorithms.
    The later, allows mixing of multiple variables to generate motion.

    @Victor Urnes , are you using it for P3D?
    I want to add it as a source for Mover.
    You could give feedback on that one.

    Yes, I am using P3D. I want to use HeXpod because that is a easy way to interface AMC. I dont know if FlyPT plugin is as easy?

    Try, the plugin comes with the latest version of SimTools, select in the axis assignments one of the hexapod.
    You can also try Mover, it's free.
    New build almost ready with many improvements.

    In the column “DOF2”
    - next to roll, you choose sway
    - next to pitch you choose surge
    Apply strong smoothing
    Do not use washout

    Simple.
