Does anyone know if SimVim will work on the new AirfoilLabs King Air 350? Nice looking aircraft, BUT if SimVim wont work on it then looks alone wont cut it ;)

Cheers,

Hi Russ,
I know  wink
Any custom plane works with SimVim, of course, all you need is to get a list of custom commands (if it has ones) for this plane from its developer.

" if SimVim wont work on it then looks alone wont cut it " - What does it mean?

Yes it will work! I have a few real panels and gauges from a King Air that I am starting to build this aircraft with. The custom commands are there for this aircraft. I hope to have a few video tutorials up soon to show how I did it using this site as a reference.

Jim sounds great!!!

Vlad, what I meant by " if SimVim wont work on it then looks alone wont cut it " - What does it mean?

Was I wont spend the money on a payware plane if I cant get it to work with SimVim. I know it is dependant on custom commands and that was why my first part of the question was there. But if it couldnt be done then I wasnt going to spend @$60 for an aircraft that wouldnt work with my switches.

Thanks,

Russ

Russ, Jim,

You can make a table  in  format of this template (on our Gmail Drive).
And this template of input/output types.

Here are  examples of shared custom plane tables:
Carenado B1900

Aerobask DA62

A320 JarDesign,

etc..

You can make a table for your aircraft, I will load it to the Drive and share to anybody who want to edit it.

Then we will add its conversion data, as embedded in the SimVim database directly.

Russ,

As I always say, you should build the cockpit of the real plane, not keeping in mind any specific virtual plane models, either free or paid.

You need to make panels as in real plane, then assign SimVim parameters for  all controls and outputs.

After that you can start fly immediately for example on default B90 or other free King Air.

Then, getting any paid aircraft, just load it and test all controls - some will work as-is, some just will need some "conversion".

That's a plan,
Vlad

Yes agreed and thats what I worked towards with the default C90 in XP. My concern was buying this KA 350 and finding they used non standard datarefs (which you allude to in your documentation). The plane 'looks' really good, but if simvim wouldnt work with it (NOT your fault), because of non standard datarefs, then looks alone would not make me buy it. At the $50 price plus currency conversion, makes for an expensive 'experiment' to find out it didnt work with your great piece of software. Which was the reason for my original question. I wanted to see if anyone had tried it yet.

Cheers, :)

Russ,

Here are all the manuals about ho to use custom plane data: http://simvim.com/techguides.html

Please read all. Here is about custom input conversion: http://simvim.com/svc_convert.html

Also, we can add any popular custom plane as "embedded" in SimVim database, so nobody will need to make "conversion" later for this model.
