[Mod - Happy Thoughts]uming you logged in properly with an actual aircraft type (e.g. as a B738 and not as a 738 or as a B378 (I saw that one last night....), tell them to fix their model matching, as the issue is on their end.

Decided to look, especially since you said "friends", and not just one friend..... Looks like you may be causing the issue. On several of your last logins, you logged on as a "B738L". That is an invalid aircraft type. "B738" is valid (without the quotes, of course), and when you're filing a flight plan, you want to file as a B738/L (notice the slant), but if you log onto the network as a B738L, everyone's model matching software is going to say "There's no such thing as a B738L identified in my model matching rules (because there is no such aircraft type), so all I can do is show him as the default "no match" aircraft model.

 

Remember that model matching of course relies on what you have for AI and the "goodness" of the model matching rules you set up, plus the "goodness" of how people log onto the network. If someone logs on with an invalid aircraft type (e.g., ZZZZ or B738L or 777, etc.) no one (without some heroic measures/band aids) will be able to see you in what you "think" you are flying....

But where does vPilot get the livery information?

You need to read my post above, as it points to the root cause of your current issue. But to answer your question, there are hundreds of pages written on that topic; you'll need to do some looking and reading yourself. Start with the product docomeentation and the FAQs post.

"should" not will. but basically yes, its one way vpilot tries to match the model and livery. its all dependent on the user end however, how well they have their own models setup and how well the clients communicate to each other (they dont always). and ofcourse you login with the correct aircraft type listed as Don mentioned
