That looks great. Wish I could build something like that. It just me but I would not like having the mouse under the keyboard. Never tried it but think it might drive me mad. 

What are you thinking/want to change? 

 

The mouse under the keyboard is actually very comfy as I have my Logitech G13 keyboard next to the mouse. My hands are usually at the same level to each other. 

 

What I want to change is the height as I right now bump my knees into the underside of where the keyboard and mouse are when I use the racing or rudder pedals. I did not realise this until I actually sat down in it.

 

I would like to make it more configurable so that I can find the best position for everything and for when others are using it.

Very nice. Mine is a bit more ghetto:

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.

The keyboard is wireless so I can either have it up there, or bring it onto my lap, although the wheel gets in the way of the top rows of keys. Is ok for wandering about with. I also move the joystick to the PC to make getting in and out easy. Yes, plenty of leg room for the pedals, I am not using them for SC yet. Am hoping we will get wheel control options for land vehicles.

Support for steering wheels would be awesome.

Looks epic! You will have to show the finished thing up and running.

 

Thanks! And I will update the post when I've gotten further.

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.

I kinda envy people who have the creativity, resources and dedication to put this kind of thing through. Sadly I consider myself to play too big of a variance in games to pull stuff like this off. looks great though. 

 

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!

Fatie89, that looks great. Now you just have to make me one. 

 

 

 

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. :-D

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! :-o
