    Some may already know the very handy SimHub program. For running game data on an external monitor or on a led bar on your wheel. But this program can be used for a lot more then just that. What Rfactor 2 is missing, is an active kind of 'Helicorsa", and if you are not on pole, it can sometimes be hard to see the starting lights. Untill now. Read, do as i, and enjoy your simracing in Rfactor 2 a lot more.

    Download Simhub here: https://www.simhubdash.com/ and if you like it, get a license. (from just 3,00 euros or whatever you can spend more.)

    Download an additional "startinglights and position overlay"here : https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/rfactor-2-hud-simhub.18132/update?update=32128 and extract the SimHub folder over the excisting install, or extract the DashTemplates and OverlayLayouts into the SimHub install folder. After install, open your SimHub program and go to Dash Studio and on the top to Overlays.

    In the list "Available Overlays" the should be now RADAR Sdeups as wel as RF2 - Start Lights.

    If you see those items in the list, click New Overlay Layout on the top right. You should get this screen:

    Now tap + Add overlay to select which overlays you need on your screen. Drag, resize, and positon them as you like. Click Save Layout and give the new layout a name. In this example i added a dash also.

    Then after saving, go back to your SimHub page, and set the saved overlay to auto.

    It will start up when you are on the grid.

    Does this work with VR? I don't use radar in any game, but dash and lights would be needed.
