Hi, I hope you can help me with the following problem:
I can't see MPcarriers. I know I have to activate the the corresponding AI-traffic scenario. I activated Nimitz Carrier (San Francisco), but when I fly over the Mpcarrier I only see a tiny blue with yellow airplane instead of the carrier. When I go to the MPcarrier selection menu, it says: 'Found no MPcarrier with activated AI carrier scenarios within range'. I'm at that moment literally flying over the carrier so I don't think I was out of range and my AI scenrio for Nimitz carrier (San Francisco) was active.
Can you help me out please?

The little blue and yellow aircraft (also known as the "infamous glider") is the default model to use when FlightGear do not find the correct model.

Unfortunately I can not be more help than that, so I hope someone more up to date can ping in. :|

You should download and install carrier models from aircrat repos, or from the launcher where somebody have told me are now availabe.

I did install the carriers, but that didn't change anything...

then we need to see the paths where your F G is looking and the paths where you installed them to... the first 50 or so lines of your fgfs log file should show us where FG is looking...

"Why not?" said Gurder.
