@SeedyL3205 So much better tonight. There’s still a small bit of popping in and out, but it only seems to happen with people that are quite far away, which isn’t a problem at all. Thanks for getting it sorted dude.
@Jummivana Also, thanks to Jayne for pushing the issue through on the Q&A sessions, keeping pressure on the lads. Much appreciated.
(Please excuse the machine translation.)
First of all, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for responding earlier than expected. I am very happy to be able to fly without disappearing and I had a good time for the first time in months.
Today on the NZ community flight (server: Northern Europe) I was able to fly with many people without disappearing at all.
However, later on a local flight (server: South East Asia), I had the same irreparable disappearance as before during a formation flight with my Xbox and PC at home.
I flew several times, but the situation remained the same.
I was able to capture the timing of the disappearance (9:43) on video. I hope this helps.

Today, on the Asia server, I was flying the Mustang with a friend from Haneda to Mt.Fuji.
When the plane reached the vicinity of Mt.Fuji, many of Haneda’s nameplates disappeared at once, and nearby airplanes disappeared as well.
Not all of the nameplates disappeared, some remained, but those that did did not return.
After that, I closed the application and restarted it, and all the nameplates in the visible range were now properly visible.
Its still not 100% prefect but I’m extremely happy where this issue is currently at, I can confirm that this issue has been DRASTICLLY improved. In the past I couldn’t formation fly for more than 5-20 minutes. Today I just got done with a 3.5 hour large group flight (maybe around 30+ people) with no real issues. Players still popped in and out but where further away and happened less frequently. This is somewhat a blessing and a curse as sometimes flying to where I knew players where wouldn’t show the closer players but still the players from where I was at, setting the server off us-west and then back to us-west refreshed everyone and was a good workaround for me.
Also some other issues I noticed (which I am assuming isn’t part of this issue but can now be seen because of the fix) some rubber banding that I haven’t noticed before this (lead would drastically slow down, then speed back up), also the players aren’t 100% synced I could be flying like 20 feet from someone, but the other person sees me at 80 feet, no big deal though.
Overall I’m extremely excited to know that formation flights are now doable (especially in larger groups). I want to give the Asobo Team and everyone here who voted and pushed for this a huge thank you!
There is a new or apparent issue with the disappearing issue in multiplayer.
I do believe that the problem of other machines disappearing in the process of approaching has been resolved.
However, multiple planes flying in front of me during a group flight disappear at the same time.
In this video, it took 90 seconds for the disappearing planes to reappear.
The planes farther back are still visible, but I can’t tell if the planes near the back disappeared at the same time as the planes in front.
It was real bad this morning I was doing intercepts, and when I got to the point of fine tuning alt/speed all the planes on the map disappeared. And just I was getting ready to break off and look for a new target, voila they reappeared same course and heading…Go look at my last post in the what did you do in msfs today, and see the other freaky thing that happened on that flight with the same 2 aircraft.
