MPmap you mean ;-)

Note that mpmap02 is currently unavailable. mpmap01 works fine here, but it can depend on the server that you selected on the "server" tab. When a server is down, it won't be able to show any pilots on the map. So try several servers to see which one gives you the most pilots.

The MPMaps are always in a bad state one way or another... :|

Ah, server 02 is down.
Currently only 01, 04, 11 and 13 are up.
Some other server never comes up. Why are they listed there?

You might think they are connected in every possible way, but the fact is that they probably isn't.

In January 2011 I tested the connections between them and found, aming other things, that only a few servers was connected to the tracking server.
