MSFS Options for Model Matching Default Aircraft

MSFS Options for Model Matching Default Aircraft

Postby Scott Medeiros » Tue Jan 19, 2021 9:13 pm

The "Default Model" found in the MSFS PilotEdge Client settings controls what aircraft your simulator will display when no other similar models exist in your sim. This option may be left alone, or can be edited by the user as a way to select which aircraft you'll see when no better matches exist.

Example: Another user connects to the network as a Cessna Skymaster (C337). If this model does not exist in your MSFS simulator, the PE client will attempt to find a similar aircraft model to match. If no similar aircraft match is found, the client falls back to the "Default Model" and draws that aircraft in your simulator. If your default is an Airbus A330, that other pilot's C337 shows up as a A330 (which can look quite out of place at Oceano Co. Airport). In order to avoid this, we'll edit the "Default Model".

You may use any ONE of the following entries, and it must be copied EXACTLY into the "Default Model" space in the PilotEdge Client settings.
Entries highlighted in GREEN are best suited for high performance as AI models. Entries highlighted in BLUE may impact frame rates on lower performance computers.
