I'm currently running ignition fortress and I've a topic with the message type ignition.msgs.Contacts. I've been trying to convert it into a ROS topic using the parameter_bridge but I'm failing to do so with the below error:

[ERROR] [1667496567.459911519]: Failed to create a bridge for topic [/world/world_demo/model/charging_station_239/link/charging_station_base_link/sensor/charge/contact] with ROS type [sim_msgs/Contacts] and Ignition Transport type [ignition.msgs.Contacts]

I compiled the custom message sim_msgs/Contacts using the message definitions from ros_gz_interfaces
