Will go on to create B738 and A320 modules for SimVimPanel with all DUs and backup instruments. MCP can be included as an on-screen option.

About the creator

This page is dedicated to home cockpit building hobby and my   "SimVimX" project  - software addons for X-Plane flight simulator.

The SimVimX Plugin and SimVimPanel software (optionaly combined with Vlad's RSC hardware interface) allow you to quickly build your home cockpit, enjoying the creation process, rather than drowning in programming and electronics.
You can learn all  information about the project from SimVimX website. The plugin and main panel program are free, and your support is highly appreciated!
You can see the full changelog for SimVimX Plugin and SimVimPanel here.
If you want to see a SimVimPanel module for a particular aircraft created, and
to help better prioritize the work on new panel modules and improvement of existing ones, please
consider filling this short form, stating what aircraft panel module you would like to see or which of the available modules you are currently using.
To download the pre-made conversion file for a number of aircraft models, see this post.
You can read about conversion usage and see the progress for every plane model on this RSC website page.

SimVimX plugin v2.15
New in this version:
- Better handling of converted parameters based on X-Plane version (built-in conversions can now use different datarefs for XP11/XP12).
- A minor fix for conflicting display flags (caused the minus sign to disappear from the display when using the "no avionics" option).

SimVimX Plugin v2.13
This update adds support for a feature that allows specifying default minimal activation value threshold for all LEDs, to account for a trend for heavily varying LED brightness values in some X-Plane 12 models (this caused the physical LEDs to not light up when certain X-Plane 12 models were loaded, because their relevant dataref values were too low). The updated database file uses this feature for the affected models, fixing the issue.

New config tool is now open for all users
The new RealSimControl configurator has now been made available to all users after a period of closed testing for subscribers, and has fully replaced the old configurator. The new config tool was further refined and some bugs were fixed during the testing period.
Logging in to your account on RSC website will grant you access to saving your configuration on the server and automatically loading it the next time you use the configurator, as well as access to conversion features.

SimVimX Plugin v2.12
The new plugin version is now available for download. Most of the changes in it are directly related to the new configuration tool, which will soon become available to subscribers, and will fully replace the previous configurator version after a while.
General changes:
- FMS_Ctrl_Side switch now also works for manually assigned FMS buttons, not just for the predefined matrix.
- Fix for a particular case of LED blinking options (when options for both the number of blinks and blink timing were set).
Configuration changes (require the new configurator):
- Electric bus option for stepper and servo gauges was moved from the [Devices] section to the parameter line to eliminate redundancy.
- Selector conditions were moved from the [Devices] section to the parameter options, and provide more flexible parameter switching.
- Added the ability to configure some parameter lines only for selected aircraft models (so you can use different parameters for the same input in different aircraft models, without the need to keep a copy of the whole configuration).
- Ability to configure the brightness of 7-segment displays without the need to select a particular brightness area number for them (useful if you just want to set a particular fixed brightness for the display, without an input to control it).
Changes to the configuration format were made with backward compatibility in mind, so all options set in the old configurator will still work in the new plugin.

Some notes about the upcoming updates
The updates have been a bit sparse lately, as there are no pressing issues to fix, and we are instead focusing on taking a look at the configuration format and user interface to figure out some ways to improve them.
Vlad is currently doing on a major rework of the RSC Configurator, making a more streamlined user interface and optimizing many of the assignment functions. Some of the changes done to the plugin in the meantime may be tied to the possible changes in the configuration format, so quick updates are being held for now in favor of carefully considering all the changes that can still be made for a better user experience.
SimVimX:
For now, the main changes already included in the upcoming plugin version that are not related to the configuration format are the following:
- FMS_Ctrl_Side switch now also works for manually assigned FMS buttons, not just for the predefined matrix.
- Fix for a particular case of LED blinking options.
Any other additions are still subject to change.
SimVimPanel:
For now, I'm continuing working on the new Dash 8 panels. Here is a demo screenshot of the copilot side:

SimVimPanel v4.21 update
This version of SimVimPanel adds support for the EDM 930 engine monitoring display module for a single-engine aircraft, fixes incorrect parameter mapping for EDM 960 oil temperature in Fahrenheit, and modifies the code for EDM 960 to support proper parameter mapping for both Fahrenheit and Celsius temperatures. The module is now available in two variants.
Download the updated SimVimPanel version here.
Links to the EDM modules are available here.

EDM 930 - Work in progress
Building up on the EDM 960 engine monitoring display for SimVimPanel made earlier, I've mostly finished working on the EDM 930 display for single-engine airplanes. The value display limits will need to be adapted to specific models, and some corections are still required for certain parameters. Here is a work-in-progress screenshot:
