well, i know it used to be an issue in fsx MP that if you were flying without tags in daytime, the LOD_RADIUS was set so that you would be unable to see other aircraft when they reached beyond .4 miles from your aircraft, this was also true if you placed a carrier, and went looking for it, (aircraft carriers are big and you should be able to see them from farther away than an aircraft)
well, I recalled a setting that helped in FSX to be able to see other aircraft out to 1 or 2 miles...
I am guessing here, but there are 2 settings in the cfg file that would have made that difference
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SmallPartRejectRadius=4.0 change from 3.5 in [SCENERY]
LOD_RADIUS=4.500000 add this under [terrain]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
see if that helps any, I believe that was the mod i added years ago to the FSX CFG FILE
