What is up with this these days? When I fly with friends who are flying aircraft that I most definitely have in the game, I see them as random other aircraft half of the time.
And tonight something even odder happened. My friend was in the Bandeirante, which is an aircraft I do not have, so I expected to see him as a random twin, probably a King Air (which is what I was flying) but instead I saw him as a t-tail twin which definitely wasn’t the Bandeirante (of course), or the King Air (I could see both models side-by-side to compare), and was definitely not a flyable model in the game (I have Premium Deluxe).
Is the game matching human players with AI aircraft models? This was a fully-detailed model, like a payware aircraft. But not one that I have installed. I wish I had taken a screenshot so I could identify the aircraft definitively, but it was a T-tail twin of similar size to the King Air 350i but had a different nose shape and engines.
Anyone seen similar?
