Thread: Post your simpits!

  1. #16
    Great setups you people!

    I build a desk based "simpit" last year with monstertech mount clones and a triple monitor:






    Since we might do away with our desks over time though, the goalpost has moved again and I'm trying do build my own incarnation of the sim chest, which may occupy an unused corner in the living room. The "pedal pit" was already disassembled and the parts will go into the new rig's skeleton. I'm curently testing out the dimensions and figuring out how to make the wheel fold in, trying to come up with ideas as I go along. The chair is a backseat from a Ford S-Max and folds in nicely.



    The dimensions have already grown from what it initially should've been, unfortunately. But if everything goes well, it'll have exchangable racing/flying hardware as well.

    Perhaps a pivot to allow the steering wheel and frame to move up through 90 degrees?

    Nice stuff!
    After an ongoing extensive kitchen revamp, I've got the buy-in to make a man-corner, and ascend from a monitor peasant to a VR master in Q4.

    I'm not planning to swap to HOTAS quite yet, will try to remain KB+M even in VR.

    Yeah, pretty much. But the initial idea turned out far too convoluted, Joystick fixation would've been an issue and it'd have required quite a lot of cutting given the available extrusions. Which I want to avoid mostly, just like buying additional extrusions. After a lot of fooling around with the available pieces today, it seems this is a much leaner solution - based on all the pieces provided by the previous "pedal pit":



    Fixation is an open topic, but something will work out:

    To start things off here is my setup, with the following specs:

    Left hand Virpil MT-50 grip
    Brunner CLS-E base
    2 x Saitek Throttle quadrants
    MFG Crosswind pedals
    Custom Button Box
    Monstertech Sim-Rig (+ customisations)
    BMW M-Sport seat
    Philips 40" 4k 60hz - BDM4037UW
    Oculus Rift




    Currently a dk2, xbox controller, what else do you want?

    My SimPit so far

    o7 to all CMDRs!

    This is what I have so far, is going to be a 180 degrees curved screen inspired by the Avenger 180 from SimPit. Though this one is all made from scratch by my self. I would very much appreciate your opinions and speccially regarding the naming of the project, since believe it or not I'm stucked in this step XD. So I've created a small survey that I would like to share with you guys in order to collect your opinions about the naming. here is the link to the survey. Please I would appreciate it a lot.

    Anyways guys, I leave you with a hint of the project, and hope you like it. Cheers!

    How about "When-can-we-come-over-and-try-it?"

    I've drooled at the 180 projector setups for a while. But due to space and price restrictions it's wholly out of question. Good luck with the build! It looks great so far.

    THX a lot CMDR! I will keep it posted. Today I just finished the part that attatch the Projectors to the arms. Maybe I can do some testings this weekend.
