Multiplayer Model Distance

So my customer is using their sims in multiplayer setups, and they are having a problem with the aircraft model not being drawn at a distance greater than .2nm. I've used all the old school FSX fixes like SmallPartRejectRadius to try and mitigate this but nothing is working with our current aircraft model, but works fine with the default aircraft. Any suggestions on what to add to our aircraft model that will allow it to be drawn at a greater distance?

Hello,

Do you have any additional information on the model? Does it have LODs?

Do you see this behavior in every camera? Can you see the aircraft's lights or the aircraft's label even though the model isn't rendering?

Thanks.

I'm not sure if the model has LOD's. Yes its the same in every view, whether the VC, Third Person, ETC for visibility distance. I can see lights and the aircraft tags no problem, just not the visual model, does the developer need to add LOD's to the aircraft model?

Its possible that model has an LOD that does not have any geometry.
