Check out JoinFS. You can either meet up on an existing hub, or create your own.

Have you tried JoinFS as recommended above? This isn't technically an A2A issue, so you might not have that many people using multiplayer here.

Lee:

Go to the link I posted earlier, http://pmem.uk/joinfs/. You'll find instructions and a download link there. After you've installed it, the simplest way to use it is: start your sims, start JoinFS, then both join The Skypark (or any hub you choose).

Well, if it's working, if you're both at the same airport you'll see each other.
