An excursion to Sweclockers this morning has uncovered this gem of a game setup, called SIMPLE. I’m not so sure about the name (Sim-pit or Simp-it?), But it’s still a bad battle for Sim enthusiasts among us. And the modder has even more up his sleeve.
The SIMPIT of Naicro it’s actually an older design, but an immense combination of high-end equipment deserves some recognition. With Virpil flight controls, a ClubSport driving configuration with hot-swappable wheels and a selection of VR headsets to complete it, this configuration has become a reality of our wildest sim-based dreams. It even has a 49-inch ultra-curved Samsung Samsung HD monitor, sweet peripherals and a Buttkicker gamer 2 for these intensely immersive vibes.
There are even a number of Logitech flight panels and a few iPads arranged around the keyboard. These remain in place, as Naicro explains in the comments, with the "back covers of the iPad attached to an aluminum profile that slides toward the rail for the extendable keyboard."
And they lament, "It certainly could have been nicer, but it was made from what I had in the garage." It is quite ingenious and gives it an extra touch. Still, I think if I had the money to get all this equipment, I would have put aside maybe two of the virtual reality headphones and hired someone to assemble it all for me.
I was a little disappointed to find that the Alienware PC shell only contained one RTX 2080 Ti, especially with a famous 4K and 8K monitor Pimax VR headphones for power. But we soon discovered that there was an updated version of the configuration:Sim-Lab P1-X SFX-100 DIY Motion Sim Rig for space, flight and racing. "
Completed just a month ago, this new version has many of the same features as the old one, but now features a combined Nvidia RTX 3090 and Intel i7-10700K and includes a "100% DIY" motion system, made with 3D parts printed and industrial components arranged in obscure places around the world ".
As a motion platform, this new configuration "uses the game's telemetry input that the engines on each corner translate into motion up to 2G." This is the main difference between this and the previous configuration, apart from the hardware inside the platform, as well as a couple of additional monitors and a new amount of VR headsets for a good measure.
The most awkward thing to guess was the configuration of the movement, explains Naicro, "A poorly configured parameter and they throw you to the ceiling." But they are quite pleased with the latest fact, and noted that "nothing would change, it is a god-worthy throne."
When we asked Naicro about the total cost of the facilities, they replied with "I'll have to charge you the cost again, it's been a while since I intentionally lost the account." I think I would have done the same to save my sanity. In the future, they plan to "further expand the movement system to include rocking" (side-by-side) and increase (forward and backward) ", as right now it only has ups, downs, inclinations and displacements.
