Custom hardware / simpit repository. For people who take KSP a little too far.

395 posts in this topic

There is a growing number of threads discussing the development of custom interfaces, controllers and simpits for KSP... so I thought we should have a thread that pulls them all together (maybe even a sub forum moderators?).

If you are working on a project or have completed on please post a link to your thread and a pic and I will add them to the main post!

I feel meek now thinking that I had a halfway decent setup using a Saitek X52 Pro. Puts me in the top 10% for combat flight sims but wow. Some people take their KSP almost too seriously.

I'd love to see someone using the KSI MFDs for RPM actually build an MFD powered control setup tapping into RPM. That'd be amazing.

I've just added a link to a user who is working on just that! I hope to build one myself when I get to my instrument panel.

I want the CNC machine so I can finish my ATR 72 cockpit as well. I have the overheads and part of the main panels sorted but some of the custom buttons I need are just fiddly and would need to have a lot of trial and error. And besides, I've wanted a CNC for years but never got the guts to go for it... I just have so much planned that I will have enough to keep me going for years.

I don't see the need for a subforum at this time, there's not enough projects to warrant that really. But I do applaud the initiative of combining them into a single thread: it's a good place for people to share and gain ideas instead of having all the information scattered around the forums :)

Captian - would you mind sharing your Saitek X52 settings? I was about to start setting mine up for KSP when I saw your message. I DO have seperate rudder controls but don't think they would be nessesary for KSP.

Thanks.
