Aircraft Not Appearing

Postby SirPilotOfAviation » Mon Feb 12, 2018 10:05 am

I downloaded the PA28 and IDG A32X, I put them in the program files but only the PA28 shows up in the menu. Help?

BTW, I changed to windows.

did you also turn down or disable the filtering so that all craft will show up?
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

Yeah, I'll try again later today. PA28 shows up, so probably not that.

Well. I see them in three places:

My batch script launcher
FGRUN
FG Launcher (QT5)

So, not an issue with the aircraft itself. Have you try to download a fresh copy, and put it in the right place, I can't help you further without more info on your setup.

Kind Regards,
Josh

There's a lot of confusion about this. For what it's worth,The quote below is from my January 2017 reply to a similar post, after I had extensively tested viewing different aircraft using two computers:
.
"Using multiplayer I sat on the end of a runway in the f-14 with nearly all the transports and jet fighters in installed aircraft. Also using multiplayer I placed each of the same aircraft in front of the f14, using a second computer. Of all the aircraft tested, the only ones where the actual model was visible were the F-14, JA-37, and 777. On all the others I got the blue and yellow glider. Just today I also tested the DR-400. What I found was that the model could be seen by another DR-400, but not by another aircraft-in this case the f-14, which only saw the blue and yellow glider.

Originally became aware of this situation while operating an MP carrier. Only the F-14 models showed up.
Other planes , such as the f15, A6, A4, F8 and Yakalov, only displayed the blue and yellow glider despite the fact that all were in my installed aircraft file. That's what originally prompted me to run the test.

Also note that whereas "Seahawk Wingman" demo works with F-14, it only displays blue and yellow glider, even though Seahawk is included in installed aircraft. If flying the Seahawk, you get two mini silver dirigibles.

Having the viewed aircraft in viewer's installed aircraft-which is necessary- seems to be the stock answer to this question; but I only found it to work in 3 out of about 23 aircraft tested: Showing actual model: Boeing 777, F-14B, JA 37. Only showing blue and yellow model airplane: A6E, A320 family, A 340-600, Aermacchi MB-339, Boeing 737-100, Boeing 757-200, Boeing 767-300, Boeing 747-400, E2C Eurofighter, F-8E, F-15, F-16, Harrier GR-1, Lockheed F-104, MIG 15, North American T-28, PC-9M, Yakalov 36. Did not check individual aircraft to see if each could recognize its own kind (as in the case of the DR-400).
Anlodje should see the 777 model, provided he has it in installed aircraft, just as Johan has already indicated."
