Any X-Plane pilots want to take a crack at MP?

I’ve never flown X-Plane in Multip-Player…and from what I gather, it isn’t all that popular. Or perhaps easy. I did happen upon a thread and utility that I’ve installed that might allow us to make it happen.

Here is the X-Plane plug-in:

Here is the old manual apparently that does have pertinent info in it:

There is also a map showing who is currently online (I rarely ever see anyone):

You do have to register (free) in order to have an account. I don’t know much about much, but apparently it then connects to a master server or something.

If someone with X-Plane wants to give it a try sometime, let me know and I’d love to see if we can get it working…


People fly online via VATSIM, doesnt they?

To fly online with VATSIM, you will need to download and install a software application which connects your Flight Simulator with the VATSIM servers. There are several such applications, and all are free. Clients are available for FSX, FS9, P3D and X-Plane. These applications also enable you to communicate with ATC and other aircraft. To do this, a headset with microphone is very useful, but not required. Text communication is always available. There is extensive information and help for all pilot clients in the VATSIM Forums.


(X-Plane only) XSquawkbox is currently the only client to connect X-Plane with VATSIM. X-Plane is an alternate Flight Simulator product to Microsoft Flight Simulator products and Prepar3D and can run on Windows, Mac OS and Linux. The download includes installation instructions.
