TOPIC: Is it possible to export real-time simulation data

Is it possible to export real-time simulation data 20 Oct 2021 11:38 #115828

Hi,

I'm looking for a software in order to make a home-made simulator into a real car. To do that I need a software able to export real-time simulation data (like speed, rpm, indicators, etc...) in order to be able to animate the real dashboard instruments according to the simulation in progress...

If it can be made through a software plug-in to develop (by myself) there is no problem. But is it possible ?

I don't think something like this is possible.

I've read in another post the commercial version may be able to allow that... :huh:

So I've another question : do mods allow to get those information in order to animate the car models ? If yes, how that data can be retrieved into a mod in order to make it work ?

Yeah the commercial version might be able to do that you will have to check with the developers. I don't understand your second question.

My second question is about the mods format : what kind of files are they ?
I've seen in the tutorials there is a possibility to animate modded car cockpits by setting labels on the items to animate. But how are they really linked to the main software ? Maybe through a dynamic library I can use to extract the same "labels" values as simulation data...
Maybe it is not very clear, but in comparison, in some aircraft simulators (like XPlane for example), you can create plug-ins as dlls where you can access to aircraft's in-flight real time data in order to allow the animation of a "real" cockpit... It is not the initial purpose of those plug-ins but it is very useful to create simulators...

Car mods are not just one file it's a folder with many different kind of files (.xml, .ini, .layout, .csv, .n2, .nvx2, .hkx) Not sure what you are talking about, send the video. But like I said I'm pretty sure it's not possible to get the game data maybe only if you have the commercial version it's possible.

ok, maybe someone else more familiar with the game has an answer...

I wouldd suggest waiting for a response from Kivlov. He will know the full capabilities of the commercial version.

In the meantime, I believe live telemetry/data is possible through some kind of 'extended version' which you can apply for, as mentioned here. But this is no guarantee from me.

For now, here is the link to the commercial page, where you can contact the developers.
Contact me in a PM if you have any concerns about users or the forum.

ok, thankyou !
It seems not possible at all and even a license violation to try get what they call telemetry data without the commercial license... OK, I was just wondering, because on usual simulators games (like Dirt 3 for example) you can get them without paying for an "extra license", they can do the trick, but they've not all the datas to fully animate a real dashboard and these are not games allowing to play realistic train for driving...
