    I'm trying to figure out why we have so few motion profiles with so many users. Please take a moment and answer the poll question.

    If you find this thread and are looking for motion profiles, look here: motion-profiles-mods-and-troubleshooting-f82.html

    Also, I post motion profiles that I create and that other Commander users contribute in batches. I will continue to post them here: post26639.html#p26639 These motion profiles are suitable for 2DOF and 3DOF SCN5 150mm sims, and are easily adapted to 100mm systems.

    Thanks to all those who share their motion profiles. Per the X-Sim license agreement we are all obligated to share our profiles to help keep this community alive and well.

    I really think we should have a continuous voting on the front page, a new vote maybe every week of the most relevant topics or current developments. It would be a great feedback tool, and also very easy for the users.

    My Motion Simulator:
    3DOF, SCN5, SimforceGT
    It would be helpfull to have a standard naming of the Profiles!

    It´s obvious that not every profile fits to each Sim setup.

    My Sugesstion: Game -Car-Track-sim setup(wiper,scn100mm/150mm)-profil versionNr.

    This will keep the profil section clearly arranged.

    Regards
    Kai

    Hi Bernard,

    I think there are a couple of factors that make X-sim users not to share their profiles ... First, each DIY motion seat base is different and variables like actuator angle, pivot position, driver weight can logically make a profile feeling different from a simulator build to another. Also, It's really hard for me and probably for others to say that a profile is perfect enouph to be shared when we don't even know what exactly is possible to acheive in terms of motion quality with X-sim. Optimal min-max values to use to get the best feeling depending of what effect is used and combined in X games make it also hard for unexperimented users to create and share a profile... I am personally learning each day and updating my profiles every single time I use my simulator by trial and error ... I have created some profiles that I think feels good on my simulator but I am not ready to share them yet. I will share them for sure in a near futur, they still need some attention ... It takes a lot of time to create a good profile and I don't think that sharing profiles just to say that we share our work will help keeping this community alive and well.

    To answer your question, the first couple profiles I got at the very beginning when I finished building my simulator were downloaded here thx to you and Ledfoot basically ... I used them as a reference to try to understand how it worked and I am now building my own profiles from scratch.
