Laminar Research SR-71 VR Modification

Recommended Posts

This mod was created by Father-Son Flight Simulator, a member of the SimVRlabs club. The file is provided free of charge and will be maintained here on Threshold SimVRlabs club from the point of this posting as hobby time permits!

This file is a VR Conversion of the Lockheed SR-71 by Laminar Research, which has been made available to the community. This conversion project was done live in a series of 3 livestreams as a means of teaching the process for creating these mods.

Note: these changes were done with respect to maintaining 2D functionality as much as possible.
IMPORTANT: This mod was created during release X-plane 11.32, is not officially supported by Laminar Research. It is possible in future X-plane updates you may need to re-apply this mod, or if LR significantly updates the SR-71 in the future it may no longer work. Updates will be considered as time permits.

Items Changed in this VR Conversion:
- Pilot's teleport hot-spot added 
- All knobs changed to rotational manipulators rather than drag_axis
- All knobs tuned for a comfortable rotational speed
- Added a center grab point for the Throttles, allowing you to control both levers at the same time
- You can now grab the Joystick with your VR controller (or Mouse in 2D). The Joystick is tuned for VR controller movement.
- Left/Right switch guards (right forward panel) now work using a drag_rotate manipulator and can be latched with the VR controller

1. It is recommended to back up the original SR-71_Cockpit.obj file (rename it to SR-71_Cockpit-original.obj)
2. unzip the VR conversion file into the aircraft folder directory and allow replacements if requested.

Special thanks to SimVRlabs for allowing me to host the training on their behalf, and for the support in creating the live workshops.

You can find the workshop series recordings (sessions 1 - 3) explaining how to mod these features at:
