Default Sim-pits, some with 6DOF movement.

A lot of home sim-pits are starting to come out, from simple to highly complex, such as:





Has Oleg considered supporting these in near future?

I wonder what my downstairs neighbors would think was going on when they heard that thing thrashing around.

it's all very cool and kinda immersive, but still far from reality.. as discussed a few threads ago, there's no way at the moment to simulate G-loads, the only simulator with a partial G-load simulation (3G sustained) is the DESDEMONA one, but it's a bit expensive to buy and run

We'll just have to be happy with "approximate" to fool the brain then.

Attach one of these to a g force simulating rotating machine that pilots use

well u would need an intelligent one that can accelerate and decelerate according to your action.. and you would still need a rotating head that could help you simulate lateral and negative Gs..

considering the kind of rotation you need to simulate 9Gs you'd need a helluva large basement (roughly a square the length of a basketball court), a lot of energy and a doctor to monitor your antics.. uh and if you were fit it would help too

Im afraid we'll have to settle for a suitable compromise for at least the next 10 years lol

I am already super happy if there is official gauge/instrument output like FXS.
I did not really like the "do it yourself" devicelink way of Il2 and no MP support for gauge output in the old il2.

I asked in a separate thread, and in other existing once but zero answer on gauge output....

Support for simpits would be another "feather in CoD's cap" but realistically probably not going to happen initially given the small dev team, rush to ready the game for release, and the fact that Simpit users are a part of a tiny, tiny, tiny niche.

Flight sims, small market.
Combat flight sims, even smaller market.
People buying CoD, very tiny market.
People willing to drop a few thousand on a sim pit, I can't even comprehend how tiny a market share that would be.

I don't see how they would ever get the money back from implementing it given the dev costs (even if they did it in a week).

Still, maybe we'll see it.
