Anyone tried motion yet with ACC

Discussion in 'ACC General Discussions' started by SteelyEyedMissleMan, Oct 13, 2018.

  1. Thoughts/opinions ? I know it's 0.2... I don't know if there would be any differences over AC; would love to hear from someone first hand.

    I'm guessing all that the motion software is looking at is lateral/longitudional g's raw/pitch/roll, interpreting it and changing it to motion. So in theory so long as ACC is outputting it there'd be no difference over AC.

    Budgeting for / planning the next stage of my rig...

    I don't know about other 3rd-party / DIY software but, I can confirm that ACC works well with D-Box rigs. The settings are much the same as with AC and I don't think there was much additional work needed to implement support (on the D-Box side). The results are as good - if not, a bit better with ACC imo.

    I'm in the early planning stages of an upgrade to my rig also, so I'm interested in following any relevant discussions too. I'm also following development of the SimXperience GS-5, among other options.

    Simtools with prosimu works great
     
  6. Thanks guys for the feedback. Checks the first box "it works!' considering options whether to go for a full 5 actuator setup or a 3 actuator seat mover. Likely starting point is with prosimu depending on freight (cringe.....) Ideally would like to find someone locally (New Zealand) who has a full setup to try it out...

    So if you're on the forum, in or close to Auckland, reading this, have said motion platform, would like some good free craft beers... (And if you'll fit absolutely would take you for a ride in the monster in my profile pic... 550+hp/tonne)

    Previously had tried one of the older dbox setups on RF1 with some janky PC's in Oz, don't know if it was just the custard graphics and refresh rate but triggered my motion sickness. I figure a proper setup would be a lot more immersive for my brain. Still blaming motion sickness on spending too long in Canada with their straight roads..

    As other's have stated, The motion was a Go right from EA Day one, Simtools Plugin was pushed out within 24 hours if i recall. I spend the first day of release puttering around watching data and formulating a base line set of numbers to provide the for the plugin. I can only imagine how much that hurt my baseline Performance rating stuff, Lol meh Im sure that will be reset at some point.

    Overall Review of the motion is a WIP, as is the Game itself. There's been multiple data que's ive picked up that are rather different from AC and its Core Physics. There's a few thing's im also investigating, but cant say much on the subject as of yet. Dampers are once again a VERY large part in the actual data being pushed out, so will be monitoring that as thing's progress.

    Currently working on a new rig to add Legit "full frame heave" but its a ways off with other projects on the go.

  11. Well that's exciting ! If you've got a build log anywhere would be keen to follow along. It's looking like a pretty good option for me - especially where shipping/import fees and taxes are concerned.

    @SteelyEyedMissleMan check out xsimulator.net, you will find a lot of information about motion rigs, mostly DIY. ACC is fine with motion so far, the settings of AC/ACC are quite the same, that explains a lot ;)
     
  13. Thanks @3dchips I've gone down a few rabbit holes in there over the past couple of months :)

    The first step is always the hardest, but it is a start ;)
    It is so a blast do drive a (good) simulator. Honestly keep in mind that an easier to build 2DOF (i.e. seat shaker) is almost 80% of immersion, for the rest of 20% you need a lot of time, money and experience (6DOF). Anyway welcome in the club :)

    I am in in bayview, auckland. Currently building the DIY one you posted a few posts back. Still waiting on some parts to arrive. I wont be 3d printing anything though as it's easier to make them on the mill/lathe for me.

     
  16. Definitely a small world. All of a few km away over in the bays... ( you should probably recognise the car in my profile photo then ! )

    Yep, small world! This motion platform looks just what I want, it's got heave that was def on my list and I didn't want a seat mover.

    Only thing is the costs are adding up as I will take the added expense of also making a new rig from aluminium profile, there i another grand just there..

    I think it was going to cost about 3k nzd for the 4 built actuators, lots of shipping in that as well..

    The other alternative is spending 20k On a Legit Dbox. So in reality, This way is Cheap as peanuts in comparison. :p

    Nah I haven't updated my Xsimulator thread in a while now, haven't even really started building aside from the printed parts. So it'll be a pile o parts before i get all the needed stuff done to really start to put it together. Also redoing the 3dof frame to work in conjunction with the new kit will take some time.
     
  20. @metalnwood any tips/tricks for purchasing from NZ ? I'm going through the parts list....might as well start getting pieces for it ;)

    Yeah it's cringeworthy what it would cost to NZ for a full dbox setup. Shipping + GST (15%) + Customs/Import fees..... gulp...

    I got the profile from germany, I couldnt find anything cheaper that would be worth reworking the plans too much to work with. That cost me 397 delivered..

    I got the ballscrews and bearings from ebay, they are all over the place but I can send you links if you want from where I got mine, they turned up :)

    Motor from the same place as on the shopping list. ebay/aliexpress doesnt have the hollow shaft with the same internal bore so I went for 20mm internal bore. It turned up, only issue was that it was not cut straight so I had to square off the ends and get the length the same between them all. I did that on a lathe but an abrasive cutoff saw would do it well enough. It is surface hardened.

    Couplers came from aliexpress. I am not using any printed parts. I bought some acetal rod and will make the sliders from that, motor mounts from aluminium bar..

    Unfortunately for me, the motor landed was about $430nzd and I will get them as my hobby account recovers.. could be a few months until I am going...
