Hello.

 

I'm new to this wonderful SimHub world. I'm mainly interested in creating dashboards to use them with my dedicated smartphone on my rig.

I just started working on a project that I want to replicate coming from another app, but I have some questions about a few things.

It is important to mention that my plan, at the moment, is to create a custom dashboard from scratch in order to use it for basically every sim I own, even though my main ones will be iRacing, Assetto, ACC and rF2. This means I'm trying to create a more generic but complex dash which is suitable for almost every car I drive and especially which is good for many sims.

This is my first question: is it possible to assign 2 different properties for a text value (e.g. TC2) which will work nicely with 2 or more sims without the need to create an exact duplicate of the dashboard just to modify a new property for a text value for a game requiring a different property to display the same thing?

Let me explain better: I have my dashboard already set-up for iRacing to show the TC2 value which has a different property compared to the one required for ACC (the iRacing one is " GameRawData.Telemetry.dcTractionControl2" while the ACC one is "DataCorePlugin.GameRawData.Graphics.TCCut"). Now, the question is: is it possible to put them together in the nCalc formula in order for SimHub to pick up automatically the correct property when the game is started? I already tried to put a "or" between the two properties (something I've seen in a couple of YT videos), but it just does not work. The same example applies for the Engine Map properties which are different for both sims.

I'm pretty happy with the rest of the available properties that I needed so far, as they are the same for every sim (at least the ones I'm trying to work on) such as the Brake Bias, ABS and TC, not requiring a game specific property. Am I interpreting this stuff correctly?

Also, I would like to know how I can create a RPM horizontal linear gauge to show the percentage of the RPM from 0 to 100. My aim is to make it similar to the Mercedes AMG GT3 where you have an horizontal linear gauge with ticks above every 1000 rpm's and the related number above of the value divided by 1000. I don' t really need help on creating the gauge itself as I managed to do it by selecting the already provided linear one from default and that works nicely. Problems start when I try to add ticks and the related numbers... I would like to know how to do this and make the scale to adapt automatically depending on the car and on the total max RPM's of that car. I' ve seen many dashes doing this, but even opening them on the editor trying to understand how they are made, I ended up not really understanding the logic behind.

 

Honestly I still have some more questions, but I didn't want to make this post too long. This is a very powerful tool from what I' ve seen, but being a total noob on these "programming" things it can be a nightmare to work on. But I would like to keep insisting on it and learn how to use it hopefully getting the required help from the community.

 

Thank you and have a nice evening!

As being a noob myself these videos provided me with some of the basics. There are a couple of videos in the series that detail linear gauges, and another making a custom oil temp gauge that may translate to your request.

Good Luck

@dnd Thank you! Already started watching this channel along with the Adam Heart's tutorials, very informative and well made.

I haven' t finished watching them entirely, so hopefully I will get to the points I'm interested in soon. Thank you 🙂
