MsFs2020 Vpilot Error - Failed To Create Aircraft UAL08


Recommended Posts

Hi there, I keep getting the below message constantly pinging in Vpilot. Not sure what to do about it or if its just unique to me but felt best to post it here just incase.

which sim is this with,

if it is MFS then there is no modelmatching so it is likely that the model doestn exists in the default database.

Apologies! Yes its MFS2020.

Evidently that model is not included in the release version. I have removed it from the model matching configuration. You should get an update to version 2.6.2 when you next run vPilot.

Thanks Ross! I appreciate your help! 

Loving FS2020 and Vatsam! 

See You In The Skies!

Necrothread!  (sorry, but better that than open another topic):

Premium Deluxe Edition of MSFS2020, JUST downloaded everything to the default location in the file system.  Got a bunch (not all DA62 and Skyhawks), restarted vPilot, got just these.  Restarted vPilot again, got just the Cessna Skyhawk G1000 Asobo error.  Which doesn't mean I wouldn't get the DA62 Asobo error.

I wouldn't have problem to just use one default aircraft for everything , but it seems i cant get that also....I am too getting the above mentioned error and at some point of time (aftyer5-10 mins of conenction) i loose the other aircraft from sight. comms are ok.

AI and multiplayer is off.

As a new member I tried to connect today from msfs2020. After initial succes and first contacts with the controller I got disconnected with the ‘failed to create aircraft error’, when trying to reconnect it happend again. What do I need to enter in the ‘default aircraft’ section in settings? The dropdown is empty. I was flying the Cerenado Mooney.

Please post the full error message.

There seem to be a very large number of new users who don't understand that the default model is what vPilot will use to represent OTHER pilots as, IF it cannot determine a more suitable matching aircraft for that pilot -- and has NOTHING to do with what the user him/herself is flying.

I know this is covered quite well in the documentation but would it be worth adding a "What's this?" link to the dialogue window -- and/or an "Are you sure?" warning when changing it, noting that it doesn't correlate to the user's aircraft selection? 

I know that's more user-handholding that should be stomachable, but, seeing the same question multiple times a week is getting exhausting...

Just a thought.  It might help weed out the "RTFM" posts from those with legit model-matching errors. 

Cheers,

I've considered that, Rob, but this issue is more nuanced than most people realize, and I am working on a better way to handle the default model situation that will remove that text box and completely sidestep the issue as a result. One option I'm considering is to show a searchable dropdown list of models instead. And I will likely change the label to something like "Default model to show other users as when no suitable match is found:"

Note that the reason this is coming up so often now is because vPilot doesn't currently have any way to scan for installed models with MSFS. With FSX and P3D, if you put in something that is not a valid model, like "C172", it shows you an error and won't even save the change. That error message helps clue people into the fact that it's a model, not an aircraft type code. (Some people still think they need to put in the model that they're flying, like a PMDG model string, but that's far more rare.)

So with MSFS, since vPilot has no way to scan your models, it has to accept whatever you put there. Then people don't know it's wrong until they get the model matching errors.

Aha.  Makes sense.  Good to know there's light at the end of this tunnel, lol...

It would probably also help to attach an extra side note in the docs for msfs2020 users.

Until I find time to redo the model matching settings as I described above, I changed the label on the Default Model text box to make it more clear. I also added a "Reset" button that sets the value back to the original value set by vPilot.

These changes are in v2.6.8 which is currently only available in the Beta updates channel, so it won't hit everyone until I mark it as Stable, but I'll do that soon, as long as I don't get any bug reports from Beta users.
