Embedded conversions for custom aircraft models

NOTE: The information on this page will be changed soon

Along with all standard X-Plane/laminar planes the main SimVimX.dat database file includes all needed data for some custom airplanes:

Diamond DA-62 / AerobaskCompleted
Boeing B738 Laminar/Zibo modCompleted most of essential functions, some will be added later
Socata TBM900 / HotStartCompleted, but some bugs will be fixed in the next database version
Robin DR401 / AerobaskCompleted
Mooney M20R Ovation / Alabeo

Download the latest SimVimX.dat file on SimVimX website. For every aircraft listed here all assigned I/O parameters always work as-is.


I'm creating conversions for airplane models that I have purchased (or received as donations from users) using the correct keywords and testing every parameter. Here is the list of custom aircraft models that I have in my collection and those I am working (or will be working) on gradually, as time permits:

Over time, some planes will be placed to the main database file and available for everyone (as it's done for TBM900/HotStart and Diamond DA-62/Aerobask).

The SVX plugin detects which aircraft is currently loaded and uses the appropriate data conversion for your input/output configuration. The RSC_Planes.dat file works since SimVimX v1.0.85.

In the right column, you can open the current progress chart if I added one for some planes (click "Progress"). Not yet converted or INOP elements are covered with a reddish layer. Also, a link to the configuration map is added there (if the plane is included the configurator)


RSC plane conversion file

For any "custom" aircraft listed in the main table above all assigned I/O parameters will work if you have downloaded the relevant RSC_Planes.dat file (parameters are being added over time).

If you have one of the custom aircraft models listed here, you need to download the RSC data conversion file ("RSC_Planes.dat") and place it into SimVimX plugin folder (along with the SimVimX.dat file). All you need to do is correctly assign all the necessary parameters in the configurator.

To support the development, you can subscribe and download the current RSC_Planes.dat file on our Patreon



Your vote can help me prioritize aircraft conversions: Vote here. Please ask me if you have any questions.


NOTE: Once the conversion for some plane listed in the table is finished, it can be eventually added to the SimVimX database as default for free use and will be removed from the RSC_Planes file.


User Conversion

If your aircraft model is listed but not yet complete, you can wait for the model to complete, checking the date of the last changes and downloading the RSC file on update. If your plane is not listed in the built-in RSC data conversion above you can ask me to add it to the list (Vote here).

Or, if you are qualified enough, you can convert default parameters for your plane by yourself for any plane model directly in this RSC Configuration Tool (the Conversion button)

NOTE: You don't need to create your own conversion if you have the RSC_Planes.dat and your plane model is listed, it's useless, because the plugin will always use the built-in conversions, ignoring the same parameters mapped in your custom conversion.

You can create additional (as temporary) conversion only for those parameters that are not converted yet for a plane listed in the current RSC_Planes file.


Take in account that many pre-assigned SVS/RSC keywords are not simply aliases for datarefs, but complex internal SimVimX functions, and "converting" them to work in your virtual 3D cockpit you may lost the full functionality for RSC hardware and SimVimPanel (for example most of the radios functions).


The built-in RSC conversion engine allows for most basic mappings where the parameter name can be directly represented by custom plane commands or datarefs with some additional options. More complex conversions can be implemented only using additional SimVimX plugin functions and cannot be realized in the user conversion.



Other downloads

Here I'm providing the "barebone" C90B plane as example of aircraft model without any virtual panels, instruments and custom scripts, it's just a flight model with full external visualization. This is all you need to build your home cockpit using RealSimControl for hardware and SimVimPanel for cockpit instruments.

Download RSC_C90B.zip and place the plane model in the X-Plane aircraft folder, for example "Aircraft/HomeCockpit/.." folder.
