    Hi guys
    I'm building my first driving simulator and would like to find out how to make switch box panel where switches will serve commands. I want to use different colors for different things like turning on lights in the game or any other. BBJ simracing is making similar things but instead of normal buttons i would like to use something like on the boat or in real racing cars. Do anyone of you know where I can get any plans or instructions on what to buy to create something like this.

    You would need a USB interface for the buttons and a separate power supply for the switch illumination.

    links to a seller that has various interface boards that accept multiple switch inputs and encodes then to USB and appear in Windows as a simple 'joystick' interface. You can then allocate the buttons any way you like.
