A2A Cessna 182 Skylane

Postby walt642 » Wed Jan 30, 2019 8:46 pm

When a friend flies with me and he has the A2A Cessna 182 Skylane, I can't see him in Join FS. If he selects another aircraft he shows up and I see him. Any suggestions why this is happening?

You need to look at the aircraft list and the Model column. That shows you which model is being inserted. If there is a (D) suffix it means that the current default is being used because you don't have their model installed. The (A) suffix means an automatic substitution has been attempted based on similar aircraft you have installed.

Do you have the A2A Skylane installed? If so then you might need to use File|Scan For Models again so that JoinFS knows about it. JoinFS will automatically re-scan whenever you launch it so you shouldn't need to worry about newly installed aircraft, as long as you have done the initial scan.
