    SimLink Quick start

    SimLink Installation instructions. This is only essential information to get you started in the simplest way.
    Full detail explanation and any other information about the system, please refer to the excellent Post by ROO here

    Xplane - CLICK for details.

    FS9 - CLICK for details.

    FSX users

    Step 1.
    Download and Install Vpilot. (version 1.1.5851.23849)
    (If you have Vpilot already installed click here for details)

    Step 2.
    Download and install the MSFlights Proxy Client.
    You may get an antivirus warning but it’s safe to install.

    Step 3.
    Download model matching files.

    Step 4.
    From FSX Default

    1. Put all "AI..." folders in "SimObjects\Rotorcraft" folder.
    2. Put "FSX Default Aircraft_ms.vmr" in "C:\Users\yourname\Documents\vPilot Files\Model Matching Rule Sets" folder.

    Step 5.
    Start FSX, go to "Free Flight", start your flight and when you are in the cockpit, all loaded in, minimize FSX and go to next step.

    Step 6.
    Start the proxy, go “File/Settings…/Server URL”

    Press “OK”

    ( -US Servers, - UK Server, -AU Server)

    Press “Start Proxy”

    Step 7.
    In Vpilot , go "Settings/General”

    Password: MSFPILOT
    Full Name: Your name/Gamer Tag.
    Home Airport: not that important
    Server: Local Proxy

    (CID & Password works the best if you use copy and paste)

    Check for vPilot updates on channel - OFF
    Check for model matching rule set updates - OFF
    Don't let Vpilots to be updated past 1.1.5851.23849 Version
    Anything newer will not work for SimLink.

    Go "Settings/Model Matching" - "Add Custom File(s).." <FSX Default Aircraft_ms.vmr>,
    for "Default model" on the bottom left, press the button "Use FSX A321" or "Use P3D CRJ-700" depending on which sim your using. "Apply" “OK”

    On the left top press “Connect”

    “Callsign” - please use something corresponding to your team speak name.
    “Type Code" - pick the closest looking Aircraft to what you are really flying from that list CLICK

    Press “Connect”

    You are connected and have set up SimLink for minimum requirements.

    Because you are flying in "Free Flight" mode, if you have any AI traffic on, it can be confusing with multiplayer traffic.

    If you want to switch off AI traffic,in FSX, go to main menu on top (Press Alt) Options/Settings/Display/ traffic tab , on the left "Aviation traffic" slide the sliders to 0%, press OK.


    P3D users
    Same as FSX.
    To use model matching FSX file, you need to transfer and Install missing aircraft from your FSX installation.
    Here is the list of missing aircraft.


    For those of you, with P3D, who don't have FSX or don't want to go through porting default FSX aircraft, here is a set of model matching that only uses existing P3D aircraft and msFlights set of AI aircraft.

    Download P3D model matching files

    Follow readme.txt for easy installation


    Happy Landings

    If you have Vpilot already installed and using it for VATSIM, or other system, and you have updated to a newest version, it will not work correctly for SimLink.
    With the the Vpilot authors permission we are providing functional release.

    Download and Install Vpilot. (version 1.1.5851.23849)

    You can simply run the installer on top of existing installation from the link above.
    It will function correctly in SimLink as well as VATSIM (make sure to make a note of your VATSIM settings)
    Even if you have already complex model matching rules installed I highly suggest to use SimLink specific installation for correct aircraft representation.

    Download model matching files.

    If you discontinue using SimLink, and you require newest version of Vpiolt, reactivate automatic update in settings.
    In each of those operations existing settings are not changed.
