RE: Any way to view multiplayer models correctly?
You don't have to install the WHOLE model. SKip the panel, gauges and sound, Just install the textures and the model files and it should work fine. Of course, you are filling your HD with stuff you don't actually fly but that's your choice. I know you won't need the panel and sound but you can try deleting the model folder and see if the a/c shows in MP. Obviously, if you try to load the plane you will get an error.
