I've been doing the sim thing forever and am generally very pleased with FS2004. However, there's one think that is really bugging me.
I do almost all of my flying online (not Vatsim). Why is it that I see nearly every custom model in other players as the same thing - either a Cessna or a 737? And if I get in a custom model, they see me in one of these two. Even if I select a custom (i.e., Delta) skin for a default plane, they see a Cessna. Things only work if everyone is in the default planes or if we all have and fly the exact same add-on plane.
Isn't there a way to install basic models for most planes that could show up in multiplayer? It would just be nice if my flying buddy is in an A320 for me to see a basic A320 model (I don't even care about livery), or any Airbus model, instead of a Cessna flying at FL330 at Mach .8.
Vatsim has the CSL libraries that work, but they don't seem to work in other multiplayer environments.
It would be super cool if I could get my ProjectAI models to show up appropriately in multiplayer!!!
