RSC/SimVimX Data Convertion

Reference info:->

Imbedded conversions for custom aircraft models

Over time, I'm going to create complete conversions for every aircraft model I'll buy (or get as a gift from users), using the correct RSC keywords and testing every parameter.

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.

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.

This additional RSC_Planes.dat file currently includes conversions for a number of custom aircraft models that I have in my collection and those I am working (or will be working) on gradually, as time permits:

In the right column, you can open the current progress chart if I added one for some plane (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)

SimVimX.dat (database file)

The main SimVimX.dat database file includes all needed data for these custom airplanes (as well for all standard X-Plane/laminar planes):

Diamond DA-62 / AerobaskCompleted
Boeing B738 Laminar/Zibo modCompleted most of essential functions
Socata TBM900 / HotStartCompleted
Robin DR401 / AerobaskCompleted

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



Download RSC plane conversion file

For any "custom" aircraft listed in the table above all assigned I/O parameters will work if you have downloaded the relevant RSC_Planes.dat file (or you have your own conversion).

To support the development, you can subscribe and download the current RSC_Planes.dat file:

- on my RSC Boosty blog
- on Roman's SimVimX Boosty blog;
- if you are subscribed already on my Patreon you can get it there.

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 will be 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 in the RSC Configurator. (see Recent Updates).

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).





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.
