Building your own simulation cockpit (simpit) is one way to extend the realism of flying Orbiter. Such cockpits have already been built for both personal and educational use. There are several levels of complexity that can be achieved through adding additional controls.
- Programming joysticks
- Generating key presses via switches
- Communicating directly via an Orbiter Add-on
- Visuals - Using multiple monitors and projectors
- Building control panels
