Multiplayer not working, can't see other planes

Postby Silverjake » Fri Jan 12, 2018 2:33 am

Hello,
I started playing flight gear about a week ago and have gotten a lot of fun out of it. I've begun to try playing multiplayer but so far have had no success. I am running the latest version of flightgear and have tried all the servers. Once im in the game i check the pilots tab and it says no one is online. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

You can see where the activity is on the network via the MP map here:
http://mpmap02.flightgear.org/v3/

If that doesn't work (sometimes it does not), try http://mpmap03.flightgear.org/

Also, we have a Discord server available here: https://discord.gg/qduqavu
There is also a Mumble server available here: itpns.ddns.net , port 64738

Happy flying and welcome to the community :)

Thank you for your quick reply,
But my issue is not with the server map, it is that when trying to join the server in the sim, no players show up. I start the sim in multiplayer and go to check the pilots and it says "0 online"

Nvm,
I realize now my mistake. I was thinking the pilot list would list all pilots, not just those close to you, sorry for wasting your time.

It defaults to 100 miles because the decision for the range is left up to the model itself, and varies according to terrain and altitude. It may be realistic to have a 300 mile range at 30,000 ft, but somewhat unlikely to actually be conversing across that distance unless "Center" is in the middle and you and another pilot are at opposite ends.

/sim/multiplay/visibility-range-nm

If you any another pilot are set to similar ranges, you'll be able to see each other for a longer distance, but by default the visibility limit is enforced on the far side. So if you are configured for 100 miles and I am configured for 350 miles, I will see you when the distance between us is less than 350 miles, but I won't be able to talk to you until I am within 100 miles of you.
I speak only for myself.
