So, if I did that and sent copies to all who might be in a "private" Vatsim MP session, then they'all see me. Since non group members might not be at the same small field, then their potential red dart shouldn't appear?

How do I make an sms file?

Will the same approach, with restricted circulation, work on FPI?

On the other hand if you created an SMS file for your Lionceau and added it
to the VIP aircraft.cfg file so it popped up in your SB listing then this
would be unique to you and everyone else would see the dart. If you sent the
SMS and repaint to other users they would see you as a Lionceau.

How does an aircraft qualify to become a red paper dart? If, for instance, I'm flying my usual VFR session Lionceau APM20, which isn't on the VATSIM list, but specify a Cessna that is on the list, will I appear on everyone's screen as Cessna or Dart?

In my opinion this reduces SB3's displayoing other MP aircraft
to farce in this respect, and I have said so forcibly on the SB3
forum (to no avail!). If you want to take screenshots of events
of flying together etc, such as a recent Vatsim UK Air display
event in which we took part, (and great fun it was too - there
are pix of this on our web site), and one aircraft is unknown to
SB3 the result is ruined.  See
http://www.cixvfrclub.org.uk/pictures_5.htm for examples of what
I mean. They could certainly do better than that by having
default model single prop, twin prop and jet aircraft at least.
