Shared cockpit/multiplayer

I’m absolutely hyped for something like this; it would make simming far more fun and challenging (and actually force people to use checklists rather than rely on quick cockpit flows)

I would love the idea of flying together in the same plane! Please consider this as a priority Asobo!

Have you not heard about JoinFS. It has shared cockpit functionality and is 100% free and doesn’t use servers.

Considering we’re seeing a lot of fully fledged airliners release for MSFS:
JustFlight Bae 146
PMDG 737
Fenix A320
I think a lot of people from the community would be more than excited to be able to do flights with their friends within the same airplane. This in term would most likely open up more planes (both GA and airliners) to be used in the same way.

Wouldn’t do much for the Xbox crowd now would it. A native solution as a base if anything, would always be preferred :smile:

I agree.
And more advanced features to help in the cockpit could be added, such as a visual pointer that would show a specific button/switch that both pilots could use and see, or even just support for more than 2 people in the cockpit (with modes like captain seat, copilot seat, view only seat).

It’s time to see this multiplayer feature come out, allowing us to teach each other how to fly the plane, get comfortable with vatsim, tag along or just enjoy Virtual Airlines with a crew.

Let’s get the vote counts up folks!

Oh yes, good to hear they are at least planning this feature. Can’t wait. So hyped :smile:

Yes! Give us native shared cockpit.

I have been using YourControls quite a bit, and it’s a glimmer of what to come, IMHO.
In VR, with voice on discord and on Vatsim, taking the roles as PF and PM - it’s just fantastically immersive and takes the sim experience to new heights.

YourControls was glitchy (sadly not updated anymore), and with PMDG it caused a whole lot of trouble. So we need this feature to go as deep and native as possible!

Please, Asobo - focus on the interesting things too, not just the cosmetics!

200% Agree, Shared cockpit is a must for flight simming ! And YourControls is terrible, so glitchy and unreliableand also causing problems to aircraft when not using it.

We need a solid shared cockpit ‘‘Multiplayer’’ but also compatible with 3rd party aircraft.

It would been to record every triggers and event and share it to both party and also confirm received so we can be sure it works both ways. A sort for redondency that YourControls doesn’t have.

There should be a warning or error for incompatible Airac / Navdata however, that’s the only thing I could see that may be causing problems.

PLEASE Asobo :slight_smile:

Sorry for my broken english

Multi-player but both players are flying the same plane, one as pilot and the other as co-pilot where applicable. (e.g. aircraft)

It is on the whislist as “planned”, i hope for the best. Flying complex planes with my friends & teamwork will make it so much enjoyable for me.

There’s a mod on flightsim.to (YourControls - Shared Cockpit - Fly A Plane Together » Microsoft Flight Simulator) that adds this functionality.

Agreed. Want to double drive with my friend :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
