  1. This program allows you to adjust the speed/sensitivity of your aircraft's knobs easily and while still in VR. It auto-populates the knobs based on whichever aircraft you have loaded, and provides a simple slider for each knob where you can adjust the sensitivity and reload to test. Tame those pesky knobs and tune them to your liking. The program also creates a backup of the original vrconfig.txt file so if you screw it all up you can easily just revert back to the old one. This program will only work with aircraft that already have a vrconfig file. It does not modify, add, or remove click spots, or build new vrconfigs, it only is a quick, easy way to modify an existing one in an intuitive manner, with no typing, editing, or guessing, all while keeping your headset on. Enjoy! Massive thanks to IanQ, Sparker, and Folko for teaching, pushing, and believing. Instructions: Make sure you have an updated version of Flywithlua NG. Unzip the file, and drop both the file and the folder in the resources/plugins/flywithlua/scripts folder. You can find the file in the flywithlua/macros menu, and you can also assign it to a keyboard key or joystick button. Further instructions are in the program itself. vrknobtweaker1-0-0.zip (deprecated, use latest version) V 1-0-1 update notes: Added switch degree manipulation as well to keep all manipulators in sync on read/write file. Code cleanup. Bug fixes. UI enhancements. vrknobtweaker1-0-1.zip
  2. Out of the VR Lab: X-Trident Bell 412 with Swisscreations mod. This fantastic Swisscreations enhancement mod gets some much deserved VR touch controller love. The enhancements downloaded from this page do not work with just the stock X-Trident 412, they only work with that 412 with the Swisscreations mods. This works for both the HP and EP mods. The cyclic and collective are now usable with VR Touch controllers, and some knobs were added and tuned, as well as teleport hotspots added for Pilot and Copilot positions. Manipulators that have been tweaked to work in VR are: -Cyclic stick -Collective -Nav knobs -Com knobs -Heading knob -OBS knob -Horizon knob -Brightness knobs -GPS knobs etc... -Custom Teleport Hotspots Added New Optional Custom Features: -We coded up a new VR compatible menu system for the Swisscreations 412 mod that combines the Configuration, Load, and SAR menus as well as many other toggles and options into a clean, modern, resizeable and repositionable window. It works well outside of VR too. This is the first version, many more enhancements to come and please give me feedback. You can toggle it on and off by clicking a hidden clickspot on the bottom right screw head of the center console (see picture) or the toggle is also a registered command that you can assign to any joystick button or keystroke. To assign once installed you can find the toggle command under FlyWithLua/SimVRLabs 412 Menus. What's new in Version 1.1 -Save State for loadout and options (reload the way you left it) -All Swisscreations Options now selectable -Each Passenger has real weight -Weight is kgs now, instead of incorrectly showing lbs. -Many various bugfixes and enhancements -Weight is no longer changeable with slider (unrealistic)...add or remove people, gear, or fuel to add/reduce weight What's new in Version 1.2 - Sling Load items have accurate physical weight - Sling Load hookup Sound added - CoPilot toggle with auto-magic seat switching - Bugfix to squash incompatibility with FlyAgi Tweak Utility - Added weight readout next to Jettison button - Moved X-Pad to a more logical position instead of in your right ear Installation Instructions: I recommend making a backup copy of your Aircraft/AB412 folder. Just rename it to something like AB412 Old, so you can easily just revert back if you need to. Step 1. Unzip the file and you'll find three folders. To add the VR enhancements, just open the EP or HP "VR enhancements" folder. Then select all the contents and copy/paste into your that aircraft's root folder, overwrite and enjoy! Step 2 to add VR compatible custom menu: You must have FlyWithLua NG installed. If you don't have it already, do that first. https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/38445-flywithlua-ng-next-generation-edition-for-x-plane-11-win-lin-mac/ If this is your first installation of flywithlua, once you've installed it make sure you remove every file out of X-Plane 11/resources/plugins/FlyWithLua/scripts folder. The easiest thing to do is create another scripts folder and call it "scripts disabled" and just cut/paste them into there, in case you want to drop any of them back into the scripts folder in the future to see what they do. Step 3: In our zip file we had one more folder called "Custom VR Menu". Inside you'll find one lua file. Paste that file into X-Plane 11/resources/plugins/FlyWithLua/scripts. Disclaimer: This is not an officially supported X-Trident or Swisscreations update, so don't expect support from them on it. If you need help you can always ask me or just revert to your backed up folders. If you lose the old files and just want to reset everything just reinstall the aircraft.  ------------------------------------------------------------------------ You must be a member of the club to download any files so please go ahead and join up, otherwise you will get an error.

  3. Out of the VR Lab: AirFoilLabs KA350! This is a the first SimVRlabs VR mod release for the KA350, compatible with version 1.0.0 of the aircraft. I worked very hard to make things just act and "feel" as right as they can. As future AirFoilLabs updates come out, I will try to be timely on modifying the SimVRlabs mod to adjust to any new changes. In time, I'm sure AFLabs will make her 100% VR compatible, hopefully this mod allows us to enjoy the KA350 fully in VR until then! It's an amazing aircraft. What's Tweaked: - Added Yoke control for VR controllers. - Added VR Config file with over 80 manipulators, knobs, and switches tuned for speed and functionality - Added Teleport hotspots throughout the cockpit and cabin - Tweaked pitch trim wheel for better feel and function with VR controllers and/or mouse - Fixed FMS numbers 1-3 bug Version Information: V100 - Initial Version of the Mod V100a - Fixed Surface Deice switch not working with VR controllers. Installation Instructions: 1. For this to work, you MUST disable "Automatic Update Checking" in the AirFoilLabs product manager plugin. If not, the files will be overwritten each time you run X-Plane. So open that product manager and click the "..." button at the top, and uncheck the "Enable Automatic Update Checking" box. 2. Download the SimVRlabs zip file. Unzip the file and add the two files to your AirFoilLabs/King Air 350 folder. Overwrite. Save a copy of these files somewhere else so that when you do update your aircraft to the latest version, you can re-apply the SimVRlabs mod without having to re-download. 3. Enjoy! I recommend making a backup copy of your X-plane 11/Aircraft/AirFoilLabs/King Air 350 folder. Just rename them to something like ****** Variant Old, so you can easily just revert back if you need to. Disclaimer: This is not an officially supported AirFoilLabs update, so don't expect support from them on it. If you need help you can always ask me or just revert to your backed up folders. If you lose the old files and just want to revert back to default, just run the updater. AFLKingAir350SimVRlabsModV100a.zip Useful KA350 Docs.zip planecommandaltitudeModKA350.zip Plugin to make the autopilot altimeter gauge sync with PlaneCommand spoken commands. Add plugins folder to KA350 root folder, overwrite if needed. SimVRlabsYokeCenterv106.zip Returns your yoke to center when you let go of the yoke with the VR controllers, putting trims back into play for VR controller Yoke Control pilots. Add plugins folder to aircraft's root folder, overwrite if needed.
  4. All things SimVRlabs for this fun little guy. Full vrconfig, everything tuned up and manipulators cleaned up for maximum VR realism. Installation instructions: Make a copy of your unmodified aircraft into another folder in case you ever need to revert back to the original. Unzip and copy contents to your Aircraft's root folder, overwrite. You MUST be a member of the SimVRlabs club to download the file, or you will get an error and send me a message saying "Hey Joe, it says the file isn't available." It is. You probably ARE a member of the Thresholdx forums and you think that's enough. It's not, you'll still get an error. There's a button at the top right that says "Join Club" - that's your ticket to SimVRlabs fun. This is not an official mod, so if there are problems with your aircraft while running the mod and it has to do with levers, switches, or knobs - hit me up first. Enjoy!! vFlyteAir_GrummanTraveler_simVRlabs100.zip
  5. For VR-controller-yoke pilots, this file replaces the "green blobs" of the yokes with a more elegant and transparent slim green outline. Also the trim switch on the pilot's yoke now works with VR controllers. Also cleared the green click spot off of the elevator trim wheel, so the textures come through and you get a better sense of how your vr controller is spinning the wheel. Installation instructions: copy your aircraft/laminar/172 folder and paste a backup copy somewhere else on your computer. Unzip the downloaded mod, then paste the 3 files in your aircraft/laminar/172 folder. Overwrite. When you update X-Plane it will ask you if you want to "Keep the old file" or replace. I recommend replacing, then re applying the SimVRlabs mod. Don't forget to join the club, not just the forums, or you will get a download error (file not available). Laminar 172 SimVRlabs yoke mod v100.zip
  6. This is a script I wrote to take care of an issue that "VR controller yoke pilots" have in X-plane --> When we unlatch from the yoke, it stays in place, eliminating the need to use aircraft trim systems. This script is as lightweight as you can get, written in X-Plane's default xlua ecosystem for zero performance hit. No need for any external plugins, just follow the installation instructions. After you install SimVRlabs YokeCenter script it works like this: After releasing the yoke with the VR controller, just push and hold your assigned button until the yoke smoothly returns to center. Oculus secondary "squeeze" trigger works great for this if flying with rift controllers! The return is a slooow and smooth return, so the idea is to return your yoke to center as best you can by hand, then unlatch from the yoke, then press and hold your "return to center" button and it will smoothly correct the yoke to true center...from there you can trim realistically. Think of this script as a software version of the spring in your joystick/yoke. Enjoy! Download from the downloads section of the Club. Don't forget to join or you'll get a download error!

  7. This update tweaks nearly everything to work better in VR. I worked very hard to make things just act and "feel" as right as they can. Manipulators that have been tweaked to work in VR are: -All knobs -Throttle -Ignition -Trims -Parking Brake -Custom Chocks and Cowl Covers click spots -Lighting knobs -VR Yoke added and tuned for realistic mode -Hotspots in each seat and ALL levers Installation Instructions: I recommend making a backup copy of your X-plane 11/Aircraft/Cherokee folder. Just rename it to something like Cherokee Old, so you can easily just revert back if you need to. Step 1. Unzip the file and you'll find 2 files. Add them to your Aircraft's root folder, overwrite. Step 2. Enjoy! Disclaimer: This is not an officially supported update by the developer, so don't expect support from them on it.

  9. This aircraft was plenty different to work on because of the custom Aspen 1000 system, but I got it working perfectly with some digging through code and some hide/show sledgehammering. A lot of this aircraft was 2d panel based, so there is a whole lot of custom manipulators going on. Highlights include: - All GPS, Autopilot, ADF, Transponder, and Aspen 1000 system buttons, knobs, and switches brought in and tuned (over 75 custom manipulators). - Static elements (flags/chocks) clickable from outside the aircraft for a walkaround. - Hotspots in every seat. - Panel Brightness switch made smooth for dim-able adjusting instead of all-on / all-off. - All the usual SimVRlabs adjustments and tuning Installation Instructions: Step 1. Just unzip this and add it into your root A36 folder, overwrite the two files. You should save a copy of your old folder, just in case you want to revert back to the original. Step 2. Enjoy!! ------------------------------------------------------------ This is not an official Carenado update or mod, so don't expect support from them on it. If you have any questions or need support you can just ask me and I'll try and be as responsive as I can. ____________________________________________________ You must be a member of the SimVRlabs club (not just the Threshold Forums) to download any files so please go ahead and join up, otherwise you will get an error.

  10. This is the SimVRlabs mod for the PBY-5A Catalina "Actual 9767" Variant only. This excellent freeware aircraft can be downloaded here: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/38316-consolidated-pby-5a-catalina-9767/ I recommend you grab the PBR mod by Silentdark 666 here: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/41004-pby-5a-catalina-pbr-mod/ This SimVRlabs VR mod went beyond the scope of the usual VR work. I made some actual custom upgrades to the cockpit to allow for excellent VR compatibility: - Autopilot made to always show - heading and altitude hold only - Autopilot disconnect button (red button to the left of autopilot) - Panel png size doubled (2048 x 2048) to allow for new GPS's and future Avitab integration - Actual Laminar GNS 530 and GNS 430 brought in and configured for full functionality - Added heading bug for autopilot heading mode (turn the autopilot knob) - Added Gyro Sync button for directional gyro (click the gyro knob) - Remade all the buttons on the transponder - X-pad hidden Then I performed the usual SimVRlabs treatment: - Throttles, Props, Hotspots, Knobs, Switches, Yoke, etc... Things that still don't quite work right: - The ignition switch will not "hold" with VR controllers. I've tried many workarounds, but I believe I'm fighting against some SASL code that's preventing it from happening. So, for now, when doing the actual ignition start, I'm doing it in 2d with the mouse. I'll continue to try and track down a solution. - Would like to add a "needle" for the aileron trim gauge. Right now you can't tell when your trim is centered, except for feel. - I still have no idea where the parking brake is for this thing, so for now I've just bound it to one of my VR controller's buttons until I can get one brought in and properly modeled/animated (which I can do if I can get some intel). This took a very long time to do, many more hours than anticipated. Each Catalina variant is a massive undertaking to re-work (because each cockpit is so different). Would like to do the water bomber variant, as well as the modern variant in the future. Installation Instructions: Step 1. Just unzip this and add it into your root PBY Catalina folder. You can keep or rename your other "Actual" variant if you would like, so it's easier to distinguish in the X-plane aircraft selection screen. Step 2.

  12. Hi all, I just wrapped up the SimVRlabs mod for the Mil Mi-2 Freeware helicopter for X-plane. She's now much better in VR, fully flyable with VR controllers only if you'd like. I added a rotatable throttle handle to the bottom half of the collective handle as well, so you can roll on the throttle instead of F1/F2. :) 3-way switches are much easier to deal with, and some of the previously VR unclickable knobs are now good to go (including com1). Click on the CNF button on the transponder to bring up a menu tablet where you can add/remove the WORKING sprinkler irrigation unit. Click on the center of the dash fan to get a Wunderbaum hanging air freshener. Gergely Debreceni has done a wonderful job bringing 1.0.8 to us, and now she's just as enjoyable in VR. Things that have been tweaked to work in VR are: -Added mesh for barometer/altimeter knob (previously not usable in VR) -Added mesh for click-spot at the tip of the barometer/altimeter knob, to reset to 29.92 in hg (previously not usable in VR) -Added meshes for com1 knobs, Mhz and khz (previously not usable in VR) -Added mesh toward base of collective handle for throttle (now you can roll throttle on and off with a twist of the wrist, as you really would...no more F1/F2 ) -Added mesh for collective, tuned the dataref range for 0.1 to 12.5 (this is stable and does well.) -Flipped normals and resized meshes for yoke stick and collective, to give nice green outline around texture, but not cover the texture. -Changed 3 way switches from drag_axis to axis_switch_up_down for best VR usability -Added Teleport Hotpots to all seats -Tuned all knobs and 3 way switches for speed in the VRconfig Things that still don't work: The ADF system is a 2d instrument so it doesn't work well in VR, as well as the heading/nav instrument system.
  13. Out of the VR Lab: Mil Mi-2 from Mins - Updated to 1.0.8 by Ekre This update tweaks nearly everything to work better in VR. I worked very hard to make things just act and "feel" as right as they can.
