After a little break building a sim wheel of the other side of the hoverboard:

You cannot see attachments on this board.

Right now I'm working on making the wheel buttons wireless over Bluetooth. It's working, but for some reason it keeps resetting every thirty seconds.
Hopefully when this is working, I can implement it on the handlebar controller too.

Starting to work on a better seat unit. First I will just make it like a seat, but leave it open to add motion to it in the future. First front/back lean to simulate acceleration and braking.
Quote from: Myst1cPrun3 on July 02, 2020, 12:27:25 PMYou know, I'd like to see this.

But I'm not sure how many more buttons I've got left on my controller ;D

Quote from: Hocke on June 30, 2020, 08:58:07 PMI'm not sure wich version I had before this one. All I know is that it was very smooth and easy to control the bike by leaning.
It seems that I'm also is given riding lessons here. Well, release the handlebars and lean, see what happens.. I can stand on one footpeg too and do those things but you have to hold back the bike on the bars so it won't turn. I know hot to ride a bike, trust me..

Yeah, a keyboard makes us all world champion at times (including myself). The steering is a much debated topic as you can see.

Could be the new bike inertia settings that changed it from the older versions maybe.

Did you take the video down?
Can't seem to find it now. Could tell from how you blipped that you probably knew what you were doing. ;)

Would love to see what you are working on now! PM works if it's not official ;)

The only thing you can do is activate rider tracking so the rider moves. This doesn't turn the bike much though, as you have noticed.
What version did you have before?

Quote from: Manu on June 30, 2020, 01:36:19 PMBikes do not turn with the body, that is a myth. The bikes turn with counter handlebars.

If you have a sit on "tilt-to-steer" system, I guess rather than using a sensor on the rig it would probably work better to use the headset movement as steering.

It is not a simulation solution, but a cool arcade controller (especially if he is THE Hocke).

Hi Hocke!
Do you want to actually steer the bike by moving your headset? Not just move the rider? I'm not sure there is a click that makes that happen?

Are you the same Hocke that built the lean rig? Can't find the video now, but my memory tells me that was the name of the uploader..

And the rider model I guess? 3dsmax can't edit the edf?

A small track with sweeping curves. Really awards smoothness rather than aggression.

Also thank you to you guys who helped test the track

I hope you enjoy it!

I can really relate to enjoying the process of constructing things like this, but it must kind of suck to put in all the hundreds and hundreds of hours he probably has, and have the result being like that video. Looks like a very awkward way to control a bike!
A bang/buck ratio of 0.2/10000?

@maggikk22, great job with the 'controller controls' like always! What is it that you're putting them on? Want to see more! :D

Quote from: doubledragoncc on June 06, 2020, 06:30:41 PMNot really Vini....Holovis bought a motion platform for the bike simulator I was building them and platform alone cost over £130000 !!! needed a 16 ton concrete bed and more lol


Wow.. How did that turn out?
The Cruden is probably not cheap either.. Does anyone really use these beasts, and what for?

Quote from: Furious on June 04, 2020, 11:02:27 AMHi there! I'm gonna use this topic to ask a simple, yet important question to Piboso.
Let's say I'm building a simulator intended to be used with full body tracking and direct input steering setting.
If I was to measure the pressure put on the motorcycle pegs of the simulator by the rider, could we use this data as an input to the physics model? Being complementary to the other 'main' inputs? If directsteer mode disables "virtual rider", this should not be hard to implement, am I right?

You would be using it to control the rider lean L/R? Depending on how much weight you put on the pegs ,or what would it do?
IRL it doesn't really do much.

Before 18 I think pretty much only Javi had access to encryption tools, so it should be only Mgp-19 and legends that have this problem?

Cleaned up the electronics a bit too. It'll be nice not having to be so careful when setting up.

The cover turned out fine! A bit bulky maybe, but I'm happy!
The little rear brake thing seems to do it's work good too!

I want to paint the motor part, but at the moment I'm too lazy to take it apart.
