#467432 Either from the Messages tab, or if you're referring to an earlier flight, go to My Documents/vPilot files and look for a file named Debug-yyyymmddhhmmss.log (where yyyy is the year, mm is the month, dd is the day, and I bet you get the rest, of when your session started.

You're looking for text that looks something like this:

Code: Select all[21:57:54.574] Aircraft discovered: SWA751 - requesting CAPS, sending CAPS, requesting aircraft info
[21:57:54.949] Model match result - Callsign: SWA751 - TypeCode: B737 - ModelName: WoA_FAIB_FSX_B737-700_W_SWA-Southwest Airlines - Rule Set: C:\Users\FSComputer\Documents\vPilot Files\Model Matching Rule Sets\World of AI - Southwest Airlines (SWA).vmr - Priority: 37 - Pass: 1

#467433 At the time that the VIP model set was created, United did not operate the 737-800 or -900. All those which are now in the United fleet, are former Continental aircraft, acquired through the merger.

I suspect that's why VIP can't put a UAL livery on a 738.

#467436 Thanks very much, Jim. That's what I suspected, but wanted to verify through data, as well as see if there were other-than-UAL aircraft in his logs that he was concerned about. That said, Dan, if these are the only aircraft you're worried about, Jim is spot on.

Since vPilot didn't find any VIP UAL B738 or B739s installed in your sim (Pass 1), it looked for a VIP UAL [something similar to a B738 or B739] and found (and displayed) a UAL B732 (Pass 2).

Does this help?

i have tried some of the other model sets Don, for those i get the red errors in the main message box. Im also not seeing that file in my documents all as i see in the vpilot files is model matching rule set files.

#467699 i tried creating my own rules using this tutorial

To build your own rule set, create an XML file using the following template:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ModelMatchRuleSet Folder="" UpdatedOn="3/1/2014 6:40:00 PM">
</ModelMatchRuleSet>

Insert your rules between lines 2 and 3.

The Folder attribute is for grouping the files together in the settings window within vPilot. Leave it blank to have your rule set appear in the top level of the tree.

The UpdatedOn attribute is only for rules hosted on the vPilot web site. It is used to compare your downloaded version against the version on the vPilot server, to see if a newer version of the rule set is available for download. For custom rule sets you create yourself, it can be set to any date and time. It must follow the format shown, however.

Be sure to save your file with a filename that is different than the files available for download from the vPilot web site.

Once you are finished creating your file, add it to your list of rule sets by pressing the Add Custom File(s) button on the Model Matching tab in the Settings window.


when i am done, do i save it as a xml file or a vmr file?





this is what i have created so far in a text document that i have saved as a .xml file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ModelMatchRuleSet Folder="" UpdatedOn="3/1/2014 6:40:00 PM">
<ModelMatchRule CallsignPrefix="AAL" TypeCode="B738" ModelName="FREEWARE_(C)_TDS_16AUG2013_738_CFM56-7B--W2__+A0200_+D00_+B0 AAL-N940NN" />
</ModelMatchRuleSet>
