  1. So, I've been busy. The whole build is inside the "closet" that was built for this purpose. The state of it right now. With the keyboard and mouse pulled out for usage. This is how I play SC. The right console with the newly added panel that has the trackpad. The trackpad is for when I'm in need of a mouse but the keyboard and mouse is tucked back inside like when I'm flying. Two switches are missing as I'm out of stock and need to order more but I'm waiting until I've designed the last panel. One of the panels have backlighting, that was a lot of work and I might do the same to the other panels. I have prepared all panels for installation of LED lights. All the panels are designed with three DCS jet fighters in mind, the AJS 37 Viggen, F/A-18 Hornet and the F-14 Tomcat. Because of the Viggen there is some text in Swedish. Front console, strong lights from the Thrustmaster Cougar MFD because of the dark surrounding. Two Saitek/ Logitech Flight Instrument Panel, one in each of the two top MFD:s, these can be used with X-plane. You can also see the Thrustmaster TPR pedals. Left console with the throttle. I've changed the original slew axis controller to this instead Analog thumbstick skew sensor upgrade and I love it, the control is much better, I use it for strafing with the ship and it makes landings with the ship so much easier as it's an axis. You can see the USB and DP extension cables at the front of the throttle. I noticed that the extension cables were a bit short when I installed them but they do work, the Rift S headset is hanging on the wall right behind my right shoulder. Behind the monitor I have the Philips Hue Play that sync up with the screen. Underneath the chair I have the Buttkicker Gamer 2 and it can really elevate the immersion.
  2. I don't see any problems with this idea, neither economical or geographical.
  3. Two SPARE bedrooms?! If they are next to each other we can tear down the wall and make a full sized Connie bridge. That would be awesome!
  4. I actually put down some time trying to learn how to fly the Ka-50. I had to quit before I smashed something to pieces or killed the neighbour, I got so mad that the damn thing didn't do what I wanted it to do. I'm sticking to fixed winged for now.
  5. A small update, removed, moved and added some things.
  6. I'm one of those people who felt envy as well and that's why I did this. The pit is made with being able to play different kind of games in mind, that is why it was so important that the mouse and keyboard were positioned in front instead of to the side like people usually do with simpits. I started this two weeks into my four week summer vacation after building a sofa out on the balcony, this meant that it had to be finished in two weeks before I went back to work. Time is a hell of a motivator so I recommend starting something when you have a short time to finish it. You inspire me boss, I will now add a retractable ladder to the side! Just this morning I started thinking of how I would build a double seated pit, one in front of the other as the F-14 Tomcat is soon to be released in DCS. If you have the space for it I think we can get it done in about two to three weeks. We need to have shared custody though and I can come and go as I want.
  7. Well this is why I did make this post, people who have no idea what they are doing learning together. Just give me a shout if you want to fly sometime.
  8. I use the Warthog HOTAS so I have two seperate throttle axis. I use one for collective (angle of the blades) and one for the throttle (increase-decrease the RPM of the engine). In other games you usually just have a throttle with no need for adjustment of the collective.
  9. Hello fellow members! I have searched the forum for any topics on DCS (Digital Combat Simulator) and I found nothing. I am interested in seeing if people of this community have any interest in these kind of simulators. Now I'm not in any way or shape on an instructor level of knowledge when it comes to this sim or any aircraft but I'm getting by learning as I go.

The sim can be beautiful.
  10. So, it's finished. I'm pleased with how it turned out, it does look like furniture and not just some toy that I feel embarrased to show to others. There are still those parts about it that I want to change but I can set aside an hour or two when I can to modify and adjust those problems. Hope you like the design and if you do decide to use this design with a few ideas of your own, please upload images here so that I can se what you did differently. /Fatie89 http://
  11. Thanks! Thanks! And I will update the post when I've gotten further.
  12. Support for steering wheels would be awesome.
  13. That right there with the keyboard and mouse is what I wanted to get around for games like SC. Having a place for everything. The best thing about the way that you have done it is that there is no problem with leg room while using pedals.
