Multiplayer in MSFS

Recommended Posts

Hello. Since we now have a good native casual multiplayer in the sim (without having to go to IVAO or VATSIM). Do you guys use it to fly together? How do you go about it? How do you communicate? 

Im always online, but never really see anyone (due to my routes and the time i fly, mostly late evening and early morning, french time). 

Only yesterday i bumped into a random guy in the grand canyon and went for a crazy ride insinde the cznyin. It was amazing. But no way to communicate, no way to find out who he is (cant remember is user ID). But i have to say it was amazing fun. 

Is there somewhere a website or something where people post their intentions and are willing to accept people tagging along? 

 

Thanks a lot!

Yep, I wonder the same thing. Not too helpful I'm sure, but I have a flying buddy and we use our phones to communicate. Like so many other areas, multi-player is quite imperfect and frustrating at times. At others it's easy and works wonderfully. I imagine someone will chime in and provide info on better ways to communicate that don't require giving out personal phone numbers.

I believe Discord is used by people to arrange meet-up flights. Presumably they use its VOIP service to communicate during flights, but I've zero experience with Discord.

Right ok guys thanks. There should be a "whos online" website with some kind of map or something. Very very hard to find players and potential flying buddies on the msfs world map. Maybe there a section on the official forum, im gonna have a looksie.

There are a number of sites announcing group flights. They usually include flight plans you can download ahead of time to load into FS 2020. They also point to their discord sites so you can join in and talk with trip creators and participating pilots. Very open and welcoming. Jump in and give it a try!

This is the link to MSFS Bushpilot discord. We do regular flight events every saturday at 06.00 GMT and 18.00 GMT.  Me and a friend are also hosting a South American bushtrip there that happens every tuesday at 1830 GMT that will continue until we reach Cape Horn probably in March or April next year. Usually a good turn out on these (anywhere from 7-20).
