Default

Every default X-Plane/Laminar aircraft model and its custom modifications, as well as most free models are working as-is with SimVim parameters assigned in the Configurator. That means you can assign all needed parameters for any aircraft listed below and fly:

  • All X-Plane/Laminar planes
  • The "default" support list also includes those default planes that use new XP11 command/datarefs started with prefix "laminar/../' (not "sim/..". ):

  • Laminar Cessna 172 (using all defaults +8 new X-Plane "laminar/.." commands)
  • Laminar Baron 58, ( all default +15 "laminar/.." parameters)
  • Laminar Boeing 737, ( all default and new "laminar/.." parameters)
  • "Zibo mod" /Laminar Boeing 737 ( default and 600+ X-Plane "laminar/.." and additional "Zibo" custom command/datarefs )
  • Laminar C90 ( default + 70 "laminar/.." parameters, some still need to be added)
  • Laminar MD82 (some "laminar/.." parameters still need to be converted)
  • All freware planes that are using only default X-Plane commands/datarefs.
  • The conversion table for some freeware models, that use their own custom datarefs, can be embedded in SimVimCockpit database, like DR401 below.

  • Aerobask Robin DR401 (default + 13 custom Aerobask parameters converted)
  • REP (Reality Expansion Pack) - All major REP parameters are converted. If you have a plane that uses this pack (REP), the plugin will adapt all the needed parameters.

Download the latest SimVim "database" file: SimVim.dat

This file is always included in the SimVImCockpit plugin archive, but it can be updated frequently, even if the main SimVim plugin has not been updated to new version. Always replace older SimVim.dat file in SimVim plugin folder with latest one.

It includes all parameter list with predefined functions, the custom conversion data for some planes included in the "embedded" list, all firmware, name auto-correction list (to replace old parameter names with new ones), etc.


Data conversion files for payware or free custom aicraft models

If some SimVim parameters assigned to systems on your custom / paid aircraft do not work properly and your plane model has its own custom datarefs/commands (some have just few custom commands, some have a lot of them), you need to have an additional SimVim "data conversion file" for this particular model (simvim_xxx.dat) and place it in assotiated aicraft folder.

This data file includes only those SimVim named parameters that had to be "remapped" by plugin to related custom commands (datarefs) provided with this specific model.

How it works: When an aircraft is loading, the plugin looks for replacement data table and remaps all needed standard input/output parameters located in the SimVim database into this plane model custom data.

Download: You can download the related data convertion file for some planes on the SimVim "Custom Conversion" community section


NOTE: you not necessary need to have some of default parameters converted to the aircraft custom datarefs, even if the default don't work in your virtual plane - for example you simply don't see some switches animation or some annunciators, but they work on your hardware panel. This is also related to all SimVim Radio functionality.

Some SimVim systems can be assigned to work with your hardware switches, displays and don't need to be "synchronized with virtual panel (that you don't need to see actually), if this is not influence the flight and other systems (chronometer/timer , DME, other radio devices, lighting, common information displays, etc.).
