    Thank's to @Wotever for providing the following Beta version of simhub, you can now use it as a replacement in-game hud via the in game overlays webhud feature in Raceroom.

    This is an unoffical beta but except the modification to make it work with the webhud, it's the same as the one promoted for the shakeit beta: http://www.simhubdash.com/unofficial/HubPackage.6.08.0b7.zip

    Simply install SimHub
    Create or edit a dashboard and ensure it has a transparent background.
    Size/Position elements appropriately.

    Once saved, click "More" next to the dashboard, then choose "copy OBS browser address to clipboard"

    Then use the following launch option for RaceRoom, via steam:
    -webHudUrl=PasteCopiedUrlHere

    i.e
    -webHudUrl=http://127.0.0.1:8888/Overlay/RaceRoom

    This is a quick and dirty test, just to show it in action, ignore the squished graphics, that's because I normally use triple screens, but was trying it out on a single screen.

    The possibilities are endless!

    I realise this is kind of a double post, but I think it deserves its own thread.
    P.S. I am in no way affiliated with SimHub, just a regular user.

    Exmaple HUD, created using a 1440p canvas but can be used on 1080 or just edit to copy/paste components into your own.

    Damage Indicators, Start Lights, Tyre Temp/Wear/Pressure/Dirt
    Fuel Estimate, Proximity Radar, Relative timing top bar, with best lap, delta lap time bar with estimated lap, Sector Times for current, last and best, etc.

    Top bar is not just a position bar, it shows players relative to your position on track, so if you are being lapped, that person will show behind you with a relative time and vice versa.
    Not shown properly in screenshot.

    Personally, I find the timings and such much better than the original sector 3 one, i.e the delta bar in the sector 3 one shows the gap to the player in front, not your gain/loss over the lap like Simhub does. Also, relative top bar shows best laps for each driver and gap in time, rather than distance. Its also easier for anybody to edit, without coding and hosting files :)

    To use this, unzip and double click to install into simhub.
    Once installed into simhub, add the following launch option to Raceroom via Steam:

    -webHudUrl=http://127.0.0.1:8888/Overlay/RaceRoom_1440

    or if that is problematic, use:
    -webHudUrl=https://fxuk.github.io/webhud/simhub/1440.html

    And of course, edit to your liking.

    Can the simhub based overlays still be turned off with the eye icon in game? I assume the various components aren't movable in game either? Is it possible to create multiple pages and assign a simhub hotkey to switch between them as the game is running?

    I spent about 2 hours last night trying to get game notifications (session best, pit limiter active etc) to show up on my dash with no success.... I'm crap at this stuff!

    You can make "pages" yeah, although I have controls/pages turned off for my dash.
    Ultimately, I am making something I want, but sharing it here because I think others may find stuff useful.

    Check my dash above, has pit limiter and other stuff, you can copy/paste to your own dash if required.. that's pretty much all I have been doing, most of the stuff was created by the sim hub developer, aside from a few bits myself, like starting lights etc. Should give you an idea of what's what.

    I'll have a look. Yes I've only been editing wotevers original dash templates for my own use. The dash already has notifications but doesn't seem to work properly. I tried copying a section I know works from another dash but that didn't work either. I'll have another go at some point!

    New version of my Hud template is attached, suitable for 1440p / 1080p

    It's clean, unobtrusive and ready to go, other than it having branding for RWB (top left) easy to change, but I haven't removed it because you may want to put your own logo/website in there. If not, edit the template, select and delete, simple as that.

    NewHud.png

    Not shown in the screenshot is:
    • Start Lights
    • Flashing Pit Limiter
    • Push to Pass Indicator
    • DRS Indicator
    • Proximity Radar (quite subtle) positioned below the horizon, above the dash.

    Shown in the screenshot:
    • Top Bar - relative to position on track, with Blue marker when being lapped and red when lapping.
    • Top bar contains best lap for driver and relative gap.
    • Delta time bar, showing estimated lap time and gap, shown in all sessions, hides when lap is invalid.
    • Sector Times for Current, Last and Best, colour coded (green improved over best, light purple for best overall)
    • Rev counter, speed and gear indicator
    • Tyre temperature indicator for Outside, Centre and Inside
    • Tyre Wear Indicator
    • Tyre Dirt Indicator
    • Tyre Pressure Indicator
    • Brake Temperature Indicator
    • Damage Indicators
    • Input Indicators (clutch/brake/throttle)
    • Fuel Info, including an estimate for Race 1 (requires a few laps in practice/qualifying to generate)
    • Sim Hub generated track map (requires a few laps in practice/qualifying to generate)

    All elements are grouped, so editing / moving / removing things should be easy.

    1. Easiest way to use it is:
    2. Iinstall simhub
    3. Download and install this template (attached)
    4. Add the following launch option to Raceroom via Steam:
      -webHudUrl=https://fxuk.github.io/webhud/simhub/1440.html

    * The above github link is a simple iframe that loads your localhost simhub file, with transparency, it should work on most versions of simhub, not just the above beta and is set to launch this specific template by default.

    Enjoy, edit to your liking.

    VR Optimised version, as in.. you can read it.
    Screen res should be 1920x1080 set outside of VR for best results.

    Map a button as shown below to allow changing of screens, 1 contains all elements, 2 contains top bar, start light & pit limiter only, 3 is empty.

    Steam Launch Option:
    -webdev -webHudUrl=https://fxuk.github.io/webhud/simhub/hmd.html
