Bug reporting topic: Invisible planes in MSFS


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I currently have an issue with the visibility of the other planes. When I connect to the network, the others are visible for only a few moments, then they disappear.

I'm using the newest version of vPilot 2.6.6

I have turned the AI traffic and ATC completely off in the simulator.

Greetings

As an update. We are in discussion with Asobo about this issue. Please keep the bug reports coming!

Yeah, that's enough info, thanks.

After a conversation I had with an Asobo dev team member, they are now aware of how to reproduce this issue and have it on their list to fix it. So it should be taken care of in a future update of MSF

Are you having trouble seeing other VATSIM traffic in MSFS? Submit details about it on this topic!

Make sure:
- Set your multiplayer and A.I. settings both to "off".
- There is traffic where you are, and that there are supposed to be planes there
- You tell us which version of vPilot you are using.

Thank you!

I have multiplayer and A.I settings both to off.  I few into a Class B airspace and ATC told me I was third in line but I saw no planes in the air nor did I see any planes on my VFR Map.  I'm using vPilot 2.6.7.  Also, not using any addons.

So I think traffic actually may be working.  I just saw a plane takeoff at JFK.  I looked at Simaware and apparently a plane did just takeoff from that same runway at the same time I saw it while connected.  I guess the problem is, why aren't the planes showing up on my VFR Map?  And when I was landing in a Class B yesterday and was told I was third in line, I could not see any other planes in the air.

That's a whole other issue. The TCAS and traffic maps do not pick up VATSIM traffic as they haven't been programmed to do so. This is a good topic to submit to zendesk.

So I did quite a bit of testing today outside of Vatsim with my live traffic settings turned on.  It appears the only planes that show up on the VFR Map are Real-Life Planes.  FS2020 Players do not show up on the VFR Map.  I submitted a bug to Zendesk.

Hey!

I did some flying in vatsim with my partner and we noticed a problem. During longer trips (20 minutes or more) so when we land we do not see each other at all. What could this be due to? It is not the intention that online traffic should disappear. Someone who has an idea or solution. Because this does not work in the loins. I useing 2.6.7 and still i have the problem.

Thanks in advance

Dear Matthew, could VATSIM also try to escalate these type of issues to Asobo/Microsoft through the FS2020 partnership?

And if not, what type of partnership is it then?

I am sure they are aware, but I can't imagine it being a very prioritized case there now.. 🙂 I'm sure it'll all come eventually!

I agree it would be wishful thinking to hope that an issue like this could be made by anybody their top priority right now.

I am however, not sure that they aware of it - at least not as we understand it: that VATSIM traffic is virtually invisible without it properly showing up in aircraft radar units and TACAS systems. I am creating my Zendesk report as we speak write.

That's why I asked... is VATSIM actively engaging Asobo/Microsoft through their partnership, so that we don't end up just hoping for "it all coming eventually" ?

vpilot 2.6.7 - Today my friend and I connected at an airport, next to each other. He could see me but I could not see him at all.

We are using the same vpilot update (current), on MSFS. Yesterday it was working fine, but today it's not oddly. We've disconnected and reconnected and both checked to ensure we are not accidentally in observer mode and everything seems fine except for the fact that I cannot see him.

I've checked .debug and the only message there is the version 2.6.7 message - no error codes etc either. My modelmatching is showing correctly, audio/text is working for both of us too - he's just invisible to me.

I have the same problem.

I am doing a flight on the FS2020 A320Neo from KFLL over the Caribbean and I was pleasantly surprised to see airport ground traffic appearing on the Nav Display (for the first time).

I did not immediately also see airborne traffic however (besides out the window of course)... it appears there is a very small radius filter for ND traffic?

can all of you experiencing these problems type .aircraft in your vPilot window and paste the screenshot of the Aircraft window here?

@Ross Carlson

edit:

  • vPilot version 2.6.7
  • All MSFS traffic off

 

After vPilot is connected, if I change the Time in MSFS using the slider, the aircraft that were 'Active' status in the .aircraft windows disappear from the window (and MSFS) and reappear in the .aircraft window as 'Ignored', no longer showing in MSFS.

Disconnect and reconnect doesn't fix, but if I close vPilot , open it again and reconnect, they're back as 'Active' and in MSFS.

As requested ... the screenshot from the .aircraft command at today´s destination at EDDV.  Looks like aircraft are received.... unfortunately can not confirm today if they were actually visible as I was only plane at EDDV - sorry.

 

FS2020, patch2:  AI off, Multiplayer Off, Live Traffic On. (General - Traffic - Aircraft Traffic Type: Real-Time Online), ATC Voices: On, Weather&Time: Live

vPilot 2.6.7.

 

Thx for the great vPilot software and thx for looking into it.

G'day, 

Just checking if this was enough information to help or whether there is more desired - I didn't capture the .debug window but changing the time in MSFS results in 100% reproducible loss of aircraft.

 

Yeah, that's enough info, thanks.
