#532742 Hi everyone,

I'm hoping someone can help?!

A month or so ago I managed to get ES to connect to my sim WITHOUT being connected to VATSIM.

I have just gone to try it again and now it will no longer work and tbh I cannot remember what I done to achieve this.

I have been racking my brains and have tried everything how the past 6 hours and am now at a loss.

If anyone has any info or could possibly help me this would be amazing.

Thank in advance!!!

#532778 What sim are you using? What pilot client? What steps have you followed this time to try and connect it?

Knowing that, we'll be able to help quicker without repeating things you have already tried ;)

Hi,

I'm currently using P3D, i dont ever remember using a client the last time i tried this out.

The only things i can remember doing is having p3d open along with euroscope connected as localhost. I have also tried FSD server this time round but there is limited to no information on how to set anything up with it.

Are you sure about that?

I have read the documentation and as far as I can see it doesn't. Im not looking at running vatsim or running vpilot over a network either maybe the attached picture will help?

#532809 I'm trying my best to describe what my needs are but not sure its actually getting across properly.

PC1 - P3D
PC2 - Instruments
PC3 - Euroscope

not one of the pcs are connected to the internet i just want to be able to get what euroscope offers to vatsim but on a closed no internet network, so eurscope on PC3 shows what P3D is doing on PC1.

#532810 vPilot can connect to ES on localhost or any other IP using the .towerview command. However, this is just so that you can see VATSIM aircraft in P3D for the purpose of acting as a visual tower controller. When you use the .towerview command, you are connecting to ES in observer mode, not as an actual pilot.

If you're just trying to see your own aircraft on the ES radar scope without connecting to VATSIM, you can't do that with vPilot, so whoever told you that was misinformed. Maybe it can be done with other pilot clients, but I don't know.
