MSFS2020 default model issue

Recommended Posts

I keep getting disconnected with this error:


[01:10:57] Failed to create aircraft N508DB using default model "C172". You must set a valid default model or you will keep getting this error! Disconnecting from network.
 

The problem is I have no idea what to enter into the Default Model field because I can't figure out what models are available in MSFS2020. The settings screen (where you can re-scan for models) finds 34 models, but I don't know what any of those models are called, so I can't figure out what to type in the Default Model input box.

@Ross Carlson 

I can see from your ealier posts in this thread that we can use the following for Default Model in Model Matching for MSFS...

'Generic Airliner Twin Engines Asobo 00'

'Cessna Skyhawk G1000 Asobo'

Where can we find the full list of possible default model strings to use?

Does vpilot cache them somewhere?  Can we look in some MSFS file/folder to find them?

Thanks

hi, I have that problem with many airliners in MSFS, when flying on VATSIM. Always the same message "you must set a valid default model" and it disconnects. Impossible to use VATSIM since weeks because of that. I understand you have a solution as mentionned just here above, but i don't understand exactly what i should change and where. Is it in the aircraft.cfg of each livery file, or somewhere else ?

The default model matching aircraft for MSFS within vPilot is Generic Airliner Twin Engines Asobo 00.  You can find that in Settings > Model Matching (MSFS).  

If, for some reason, you have deleted that aircraft from your library as an example, you will need to specify a different default aircraft for vPilot to display if it cannot find a suitable aircraft from your AI library to display.  

Once you have determined which aircraft you would like to use (and remember, it's really important to use a low-resolution AI model, not anything like a high-resolution payware model!), you will need to go into Settings > Model Matching (MSFS) and replace Generic Airliner Twin Engines Asobo 00 with the correct aircraft name (found in "title = " lines in the aircraft.cfg files).  Or, another option would be to put back the Generic Airliner Twin Engines Asobo 00 if you had deleted it.  

This, and other related information, can be found in the vPilot documentation at https://vpilot.rosscarlson.dev/Documentation#model-matching
