Shared Cockpit

I think (especially in the feature when the aircraft has more controls like APU De-ice etc) it would be amazing to be able to do shared cockpits, so with permission you could join a pilot as a co pilot…

The old topic is outdated, please continue:)

Carson deemed the other outdated. I think this is a great idea, and I would really love to see it, especially for global!

Although this would be awesome, it’d be very hard to implement due to connect issues and such. However, definitely something to consider for the future.

Correct indeed, Mr. Carson. Not only that, I could on imagine the lag it would cause.

Oh yeah. It could cause a lot of lag and be hard to keep in perfect control sync.

Me and my Friends were talking about this for group flights and other things

Not only that, but you have those who like to troll others, by making a mess of everything. It would be a good option if it was implemented as a way to invite friends.

Add a password system like in FSX.

I will try to do that with my cockpit app (see Introducing Infinite Flight Remote Cockpit app)
I think two instances of the app can control the same IF instance and think it would be awesome if someone can manage the ATC communications while the other is piloting for example

maybe Through wifi network would be easy…many racing games have this…This would be more convenient …if your bro or siz is the co-pilot

It’s not too bad. You would need to matchmaker the player with the person he wants to play with (this could be done through live servers), setup a P2P TCP connection (not complicated), and then it would just be a case of sending events when something changes.

==NERD MODE: OFF==

You are correct in the fact that there may well be latency (lag) issues that would be hard to fix.

We could even have single player servers and maybe even people could work ground crew lol
