What is a multiplayer host?
Posted by on 08 July 2015 01:14 PM

Each multiplayer session needs a 'host' and one or more 'participants'. Most of the time when you start Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition there will be multiplayer sessions that you can join, and, if not, you can choose to host one yourself. As you might expect, the host must be there for the whole session, while the participants can come and go.

There are public multiplayer sessions to which anyone can join (up to a preset limit) or private sessions where only certain people are allowed to play.
