The X-plane plugin offers the receiving of “MOTI” motion platform values, that are transfered over LAN network UDP protocol. To enable the UDP network output in x-plane you have to make some settings in x-plane itself. Therefore you have to choose the “Settings” or “Einstellungen” menu out of the top menu bar. Then you have to find a menu entry, depending on the version you have, that is called “Internet settings” or “Data output”. The values you have to make there are very different on the x-plane version you own. In version 626 and 730 you can make a chek at “Motion platform”. Version 651 is not supported, because there are no documentations about the outputs. At version 8.40 you have to choose yourself the output sequence, which value has to be sent. Therefore you have to choose the “Master Server” entry and enable the buttons in the data area for data packets 03 and 16. That are MAC-G-Loads and pitch,roll heading.
Always you have to insert the port and IP address in the Master Server or Motion Platform areas.
In our case this is 127.0.0.1 and portnumber 49000, which is normaly only need to be changed at X-Plane 8.40.
In some versions it might be a problem to set 127.0.0.1 because you cannot use the port 49000 twice on one computer. Then you have to use a second pc, which
will receive the motion data. This is normaly the profiler computer.
If you have selected all that settings and you are in flight mode or on the start position, you should be able to see the values moving in the x-sim force sender plugin window. If there are some values, which will not work, you have to check the checked output again. Now you can use that values in the force-profiler2 as a movement value.
