I'm a n00b when it comes to electronics and Simhub customization, so forgive me if this is a dumb question.

I'm starting to plan for a project to display g force data with lights. Is that data available via Simhub like RPM data? Or will I have to look elsewhere? Not even sure where to get started...

Thanks!

OK, I figured it out, sort of.

I found the LatAccel data using a formula / property.

Is there documentation on the values? I'm getting about -14 -> 14 for the range on an M4. Is that 1.4Gs?

I set up SimHub to work with those values, and it seems to work well. Attached is a video of the finished product. The first half, it's in the lower right window. I then bring it up in the main window. The bar is above the middle monitor.

If anyone's interested, what I built consists of 1 LED strip with 144 LEDs (trimmed down to 138 to fit in the enclosure). 1 LED enclosure. 1 Arduino Pro Micro. 1 momentary contact switch for a reset button. One USB pass through connector. One molex pass through connector. One power connector. 1 12a 5v 60w power supply. 2 30mm fans. And one project box.
