Welcome to Return to Misty Moorings!     Feel free to introduce yourself here.

I'm Dan, and I handle the "website things" around here, mostly on the technical end like the overall design, functionality, and forums (Doug handles populating all the fun content).        I've been working in the IT/Web industry for 15+ years now, and enjoy working on projects like this.

Feel free to PM me with any questions or suggestions you may have for the site.

Thanks for stopping by.

Just flew in from FSE as well.  Looking forward to getting to know everyone.  The new place looks great but love how it still feels like the Misty Moorings I once knew.

So glad that we have a "Misty's Place" to call home again. Now if we can keep that ol' "Misty's" and Emma Field feeling going, then we've really accomplished something.

Glad to have you here,

Hey everyone. I'm Charles. FSX and ORBX fan. Congradulations on the new site!

I am a general aviation enthusiast. I like to watch Ice Pilots and Flying Wild Alaska. I have been sim flying on and off for years and I am 40 something years old. If finances hold out, I am looking at getting my pilots license next year or at least starting on it.

I look forward to using this site. I used to visit the old site but quickly realised I had missed the FS9 boat. Hopefully this site has the same level of success and then some!

Charles.

Hello everyone,  glad to see Misty back up and running!  I made some comments on the ORBX boards when PFJ was released that it was like going back home, and it was, but there was something missing still, and this was it.  glad to be able to fly to a bunch of spots from the past FS9 days  the c185 and supercub are gonna get a workout!  so thanks to the new staff, thanks to ORBX, thanks to Holger for creating all these great sceneries and thanks as well to Francois who published the first Misty Fjords scenery.  this is a great place to fly.

Wow! I just found this site this morning and I am amazed at what is available. The site is stunning and easy to use. I am pleased to see that the support provided is so complete for each mission. A joy to use and participate in.

I have been into FSX for only about two years and am an avid ORBX - FTX user. I tend to spend my time with bush aircraft such as Beaver, Twin Otter, Bush Hawk, Cub, Kodiak etc. This interest in these planes stems from my other passion when the snow is down and ice out, instructing canoeing and guiding wilderness canoe trips. The Beaver and Otter have taken me into the headwaters of some great rivers. Retired from the service, I also like to take the C130 and fly contours and nap of the earth in this (and all FTX NA areas) simulating SAR type missions.

Outstanding work on the site and I look forward to countless hours of stimulating flight simmimg. A huge ``Thank You`` to all involved in getting this up and running.

Hey Paddler, welcome aboard.  I'll share a secret with you ... don't tell any of the guys.  Although we hope everybody enjoys this to the fullest ... we did it so WE ALSO could spend hours flying around in our favorite place!   My "joy" in doing the site was getting to fly to the new areas as Brad and Kim made them. I felt like some kind of pioneer.  Having made Misty Moorings previously, I thought I knew the area pretty darned well ... but I'm seeing places I have never saw before.  Sandspit? (sounds like something that should be illegal!). What a cool place ... and if you look it up and see a real pic of it ... it is exactly as it really is. And it gives us a new "base" and  some brand-new areas to go explore. 

The additional areas ORBX/Holger put into PFJ expands it beautifully.  Ever wonder what was "behind" Stewart?  Check out the Elliot Fire Base ... there's a whole new world hiding back there for us.

We're also glad the page is "up" ... we'll fix a broken link here and there ... but now we can finally take a weekend and go fly this thing ourselves!  We will be right there off your wingtip enjoying this too!

Doug

PS and Welcome to all the new folks ... great also to see some old friends showing up. (Don't stand too near the paint bucket, we're liable to hand you a brush and put you to work! ... FREEware is another word for "volunteers welcome!"  :-)

Hello RTMM community,

I was a fan of Misty Moorings in FS2004 already. Now I'm more than happy that "Return to Misty Moorings" is opened (again) to all backcountry pilots. I like to explore the hinterland with little planes like Piper Cub, Birddog or Skywagon.
Brad and team, thank you very much you for all the effort and enthusiasm you bring in to keep this new site running and also for creating these new sceneries.
I know it also depends to a large extent on the fans to support you. Hopefully this will bring us back to a vibrant freeware community.
Good luck for the future.

Many greetings
Dieter

If new site is better than "old" Misty Fjords you will have a lot of members.

Also bought Pacific Northwest and Northern Rocky Mountains and will wait for you to expand!

Hi to the MM Team,
Congratulations on a great site.
I'm from TASMANIA which is an island state of Australia.

I love the Pacific Fjords produced by ORBX and now your add ons will make it even better.

The wife and I worked on the SKY PRINCESS as entertainers plying through this area
for four months of each year in 1999 and again in 2000. Juneau, Ketchikan, Skagway
and Sitka are places that will stick with us forever. I have always felt like I "belonged"
in this part of the world. Alas the wife did not; so when we did our first trip to
Devonport on the Spirit of Tasmania, it reminded us of Ketchikan, and so we moved there.

However; every night I can now go to places I did not get to see in the Pacific Fjord's and
Misty Moorings landscape. Thanks again... as Oprah would say ... I LOOOOVE IT!!!

Cheers Hank

Hello,
Just another newbee checking in and excited about finding the Return To Misty.
I was a past user of the MM fs9.
This will prompt me to reinstall fsx and buy some orbx products.
From what I have read and seen so far, this is a great place to be.

My virtual home is Don's "Bushpounder". This place here is fantastic and I'm ecstatic that the folks here have done what they've done for us and have opened this great site. Nice to see everyone here. Oh, and if you hear rumours of me and spandex, they are started by a rogue 'individual' over at Bushpounder (but don't worry Don - I promised I wouldn't mention your (Don) name  ;D ).

Hello, "One-Eye" from KEWL here...

Well, no - Chris Brisland aka "EagleSkinner" actually. How long is it since I last flew "The Moorings"? I even had a base up on the glacier at the time (thinks: I really must finish that off one day) It's nice to see the Moorings back for "X" and I am really looking forward to installing the locations and getting back down to some fun flying. FSX has been a sad place without places like this.

Hello to Everyone here;
 From NE Ontario Can. Found this new site as advertised on home page of Flight Sim. Have been enjoying all of Orbx addon sceneries and I can only hope they keep going the rest of Alaska,Yukon, NWT and Canada including the borders across to the Great Lakes. The addon sceneries are awesome.
Misty Moorings is awesome in FSX.  ;D

Thanks to everyone putting this site together.

I also fly with FSE and Com-Central and enjoy all of this scenery. I am from Tennessee but was in Alaska in 1959 as a forest fire fighter and now enjoy visiting the state with virtual flying. I have about 60 hours of real flying but that was about 30 years ago. We are planning on doing some bush flying with Com-Central and will be flying in RTMM areas. Looking forward to that. I am retired so have lots of time to play with all these goodies. Really enjoying it. Thanks for all the hard work that is being done on this scenery. It is a blast to see it.

you live close to home, I have a brother in Lewiston, grew up in Elk River (about 70 miles NE of Lewiston) Retired from USN in FL (no snow) and come back to ID each summer to visit.  Taking the jet boat trip up the Snake River to Hell's Canyon Dam is a great trip for anybody to experience.

A viewer told me about the site revamp and some of the great new projects in the works here, so I thought I'd stop by.

I'm Archammer, the host of 10 Minute Taxi. I'm looking forward to seeing the progress here at Misty Moorings.

Great work so far, and stay in touch!

Thank you for RMM!  ;D
I had actually forgotten what a wonderful time I had with MM.  :-[
So many fun bush flights over the years.

It's like an greeting old friend you haven't talked to in a long time.
The good memories of flying in this area shared.
The new memories to be created as the friendship continues once again.   :)
Thanks again!

Hi, Im new here and looking forward to getting started. I fly on the OZx site when I can (not often enough though) and look forward to flying with you guys. Gudday to the Bushpounder crew who helped me make a shakey start into flying BC and Alaska and now I cant get enough of it. Quite a few familiar names here too. Awsome scenery Brad and all others involved.

Hi everyone!

Fantastic site! 

I have been an MSFS junkie since 4.0 (even found a copy of the first release and played it a little).  I have only a few hours of actual flight time, but I love flying.  If I was able to make a career out of it, I would! 

MM addon scenery is amazing.  It adds so much life to the sim.  Looking forward to all that unfolds here.

Hi, I'm new to Misty Moorings.
 I've installed your hard work and I have to say it is Amazing! Your group of people are very dedicated and must work many hours on these addons. Thank you for your hard work I love what I've seen and I'm not sure if I've even scratched the surface yet. Your group has put new life into my FSX experience.

Congrats on your new site!

Greetings from Canada, eh!

You can consider this something of a preemptive strike since, at the moment, I am unable to run FSX on my antique system and therefore I don't get to fly through any of the wonderful new Misty Moorings' scenery.  However, I'm taking early retirement (40 years is enough!) at the end of April and one of my first priorities is to purchase a new computer with enough oomph to do justice to all the hard work the team has done.

I did do some flying in the FS9 version of the area and was very impressed with it then.  I'm salivating with anticipation at doing some under the auspices of FSX.  In the meantime, I'm building up a nice collection of discs and downloads in preparation for that happy day.  I've been going into withdrawal since I had to uninstall FS9 last year to gain some much needed HD space (77Gb, over half a million files!).

Cheers,
Mike

Hello, I am Jeff Greene.  I am 48 years old, and have been flightsimming for over 20 years.  I have flown just about every kind of craft out there, from A380's to hot-air balloons.  (In fsx, not real life.)  I have spent countless hours inside the aircraft.cfg and panel.cfg files of my various planes, forever fixing things, or trying to get them to go faster, etc.  I don't care about realism, or aviation rules.  I just like to jump in and go.
I live in the Pacific Northwest, in Washington State.  I'm just south of Vancouver, BC.  I was drawn to Misty's Place, like a bear to honey.  I love the scenery so much.  Lately, I have been drawn in by a challenge to make the autopilot work on a boat.  I did it, and now it is so cool to cruise the waters of the "fjords".  I can be found in the "Misty's-On the Water" section usually, posting my progress towards some goal or other.  I'm not usually a forum type of guy, but this one is so "me".  I feel like I've found a home.  I've spent some time in Aerosoft's African Airstrip Adventures, and if you know what that is like, you know I have some "bush" experience.  Almost all of those airstrips are sloped, pitted, hilly, congested, and the occasional elephant or giraffe will be walking down the middle of the runway.  So this place is a piece of cake.  I look forward to seeing Misty's community grow and develop into a great site, with like-minded people coming together to enjoy some virtual experiences.

I make brass and aluminum boat parts in a 100+ years old foundry.  Here is a video that Ron, my coworker, made of us while we were working.  I am in dark blue coveralls. ;)

Hi Folks - good to see the Misty Gang turning their amazing good work to FSX.  I guess it solves a small issue I had:  wether or not to go for PNW and ORCA'S, or go for PFJ and wait for PAKT?  ORCA'S was my first ever add-on for FS9 so I have some nice memories of flying around that area.  The availability of Vic+ and continued updates to CYYJ has kept that interest going...  and I found that I could run ORCA'S for FS9 in FSX with only a few glitches - mostly the mesh not lining up, but hey...  sometimes needs must!!

Just recently, I've dusted of the old joystick and done some splashing about in the default Beaver around the Tongass area.  So I guess with some great looking location files provided to liven up the area, I guess I will have to raid the plastic and go for PFJ.  Some of the locations look really familiar...

OK - out of time just now.  The final two episodes of "The Killing" just about to start on BBC TV here in the UK...

Regards  /  "Foggy"

Post by: One-Eye on March 26, 2011, 05:07:41 PM
Hi there Foggy and welcome.

There's no either/or decision with anything that comes out of the OrbX / FtX sheds. All their stuff is good; no buts. And then there's Vancouver, Tongass and Misty that fit in seamlessly, along with existant and planned airfields - even PAKT as a separate field. Heck, if you're up for a long flight, Aerosoft's even got Dutch Harbor on the market...

There's only one "rule" and that is "there are no rules - just have fun!" Enjoy your stay in the Moorings Foggy, whether it's for a spot of banter in the bar, some aquatic frolics or even a drive round the countryside, not to mention the flights in and around the almost fifty locations dotted around the Moorings. Maybe you'll even meet some of the other members during an online MP session.

Hi One-Eye,  so this is where you've been hiding!!  I wondered where you had got to.

Re. choices of sceneries, I KNOW there's really no choice...  my bank manager  >:(  thinks different.  So for now I think it's going to be PFJ.  I just hope the black box of electro-gizmo thingies, laughingly called a 'puter, will be able to take the strain.

I got Tongass for FSX some time ago;  it runs reasonably well at "average" settings with just some juddering around the heavy scenery areas, e.g., PASI and PAWG, but seems to manage ok out in the back country.

Cheers for now  /  "Foggy"

P.S.  I seems Vagn did it  :-\

  I too am an ORBX fan and was amazed at the quality of the work here at RTMM what a great site!
 The work you guys do in making these great flights is excellent and adds a great deal of feeling to the whole area.

Ian,
gald to have you aboard.  Welcome to RTMM.  I believe you will find enough to keep you flying in the 'bush' for a long time to come on the Scenery page.
At the moment the workload is being directed to the CIRP (Cambria Icefield Research Project).  When it is ready it will entail a complete package in itself with much to do and see.   Doug is hard at work all the time on the project.  Practice your ski procedures so your ready.
Oh .... almost forgot, being the "New Guy" you have to buy the beer!

Welcome to RTMM Reggy. Have a great time and be sure to take your time. That's our only request. So many people want to blast through and make their stay here a whirlwind of "I GOTTA SEE EVERYTHING NOW"
Find the time to enjoy the flight, dispatch, boat trip, etc. We put a lot of time into "Getting from here to there" so, look around as you fly, please circle above anything interesting you see below and take it all in. There's no need to rush things here. You're now living on "Misty" time!!

It will take a while to get everything set up properly with so much on offer but I can't wait.
I couldn't agree more though, no point in people putting so much effort in to quality and detail if your going to fly past it at 250knts looking 2 miles ahead.

Reggy, welcome aboard mate!
RTMM is suburb in the respect that you can install one scenery and spend a few days fly to and around it exploring and when you have seen what is there in all its glory then install the next one and start over from square one again.  It is the adventure not the destination that makes RTMM such a great place.  A lot of the destinations (most in fact) do not show up on the GPS or map in FSX you have to 'navigate' to get there, again the adventure.  Do not overlook the boat adventures either because it provides a complete new experience from anything you have probably ever seen with FSX.  The perspective on the scenery is so different and interesting that you will wonder if it is the same sim.

Reggy ...

And if boats are not enough, soon you'll be able to take a hovercraft or a jeep out onto a glacier discovering what the word "vast" really means. Pre-planned gps routes out over the ice, out of sight of all civilization checking weather instruments and going from ice station to ice station.  A completely different experience.  I guess you could say we're a "full service flight sim site!" :-)

Welcome Ken,

Only hear a wet week myself but don't think I'll ever leave. You may think you will never download it all, it's worth the wait, amazing is all I can say, use real time weather and you will never see the same view twice. One tip in case you have not spotted it yet go to "The Object Libraries and Settings" at the bottom of the  http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/ (http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/)  page and make sure you have the latest version of the five object libraries needed.

Yes a big welcome from the crew here at RTMM. We're getting ready to put out our latest project called CIRP. (Cambria Icefield Research Project) It's been over two months in the making but we think you all will like what you see once you get it. Helicopter operators and fixed wing pilots will have a lot of challenging destinations to visit up on the ice around Stewart, BC.

Until then, welcome and enjoy all of our offerings. And please, spread the word. The more the merrier!!

Hello, Kia Ora, Everyone.

Unfortunately I have been very ill, and lost some of my memory, but my wife tells me I used to belong to Misty Moorings some years back but I cannot recollect it.  I absolutely 'love' this part of the world and being able to fly it, is just wonderful.

I wish I could be of help to you all, but I can't, as I am severely disabled.  To see the scenery, this web page and the organisation, you should all be so proud of yourselves.

I am so humble to be a member, and wish you all the very best from the shaky Isle's

Hi, Folks:

My name's Jon, and I live in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada.  That's just outside the provincial capital area of Halifax/Dartmouth, and probably of fleeting fame for being the boyhood home of Sydney Crosby, of the Pittsburgh Penguins (fwiw, his home was on our street) ::)

I must say that I'm quite astonished at the obvious amount of talent and hard work that's gone into producing MM !  Moreover, it's so obviously a very friendly place, and I've a strong suspicion I'll be spending a great amount of time here -- and I'll tell the Missus it's all youse guys' fault for making the place so irresistible!

So many thanks in advance to all those who've made all of this possible.  F'sure I'll be "seeing you" around.

Glad to have you aboard Olivera.  I believe you will find a great group of people here at RTMM.  Your screen shots of CIRP are very good and after you add the sounds and blowing snow effect the realism will be complete.  When you have the rest of the stations installed be sure and try some of the ground based plans because you will be amazed at the rendition of the scenery from down in it rather than from the air looking down on it.

I recently aquired PNW and PF after spending countless hours in the Tongass Fjords area, and now I am very happy to finally have a good bush flying scenery for Western Canada.

I registered because I want to say thanks to the authors of these nice add-on sceneries to be found here at MM, plus this website is a nice-looking place; quite appealing.

Safe flying, pilots.

a big warm welcome aboard from me,too! ;)
As my avatar indicates, my passion are the helicopters! So, I´m very glad others find the way to RTMM and CIRP with choppers, too!

Paul,
Glad to have you aboard RTMM.  Probably better weather in springtime Argentina than here in the northern hemisphere.  I'm in sunny Florida and had a low of 38° F last night.  I never had the pleasure of visiting Argentina just Brazil.  Keep the shiny side up Paul.

Well, thought I give a shout out too after reading some interesting posts here how they discovered the site and bush flying.  Stumbled into flightsim back in 2002.  Actually got introduced to it back with FS3 but it didn't take (too busy chasing girls!).

I'm what I call a "closet busher".  Keep saying I'm gonna get more involved in bush flying but flightsim seems to take me into so many directions it never gets the attention it deserves.  Mostly doing scenery design lately and building out my "simpit".

Caught the bush bug back in 70's when a buddy came over asking if I wanted to go to the beach (I live in socal... I mean Southern California,  :P ) So I said "What beach, Newport?, Huntington?".  He says "How about the Bering Sea?"   Being only 15 at the time I said "Sure, why not."   Amazingly, my folks said it was ok!  So the next day me and my 19 year old friend took off in some old Toyota Corolla heading North.  Next stop... Anchorage, what only 2000 miles away.  ;D

Most amazing experience driving up the left coast of the US, then onto the Alaskan Highway (which back then was all dirt), through Canada.  Let's see, we hit a moose, bent the frame of our car, cracked the front windshield, broke my glasses.  So we looked pretty beat up after a few weeks on the road pulling into towns like Haines, Whitehorse and Skagway. 

Finally got to Anchorage and immediately headed for the water.  Dang, it was butt cold so we only went in for a few minutes, played some tennis, ate some grub and the next day we headed back home (I know-I know but I was teenager. What do you expect?).  Alaska has been with me ever since.

Hey all, I go by Propdriver or by Pete, wife has other names for me but we wont go there.
Love helo's favorite is Cera212 or any oil burning radial fixed wing But I will fly anything depending on mood.

Have leached the heck out of your downloads so I though I better join and say... THANKS for the great packages.

I do not fly real world, medically not allowed to. So simming is my sky :)

Anyway, I wont bore ya with too much detail, catch you around the Virtual skies and bars  8)

Yeah, I think that's a good point, regarding the scenery.  I had a rare moment of sanity when I started -- copied Dispatch 001, and just downloaded the scenery for that one dispatch.  Then the next, et cetera.

Makes a lot of sense, Spud.

Post by: Doug on November 18, 2011, 08:19:10 AM
Jon ... good for you!

Yes, that's why I made that Dispatch 001 ... hoping people would see that using that process is a good way to add things.  Many of the scenery locations on the RTMM side have a trip tic with them. You check the "map" icon there, see where it is, if you want to fly there, then you download the zip ... you get the map, the flight plan, the scenery, etc. Then fly it.  You don't need EVERYTHING ... and some people think they must put it ALL in to make it work.  The whole idea of RTMM and CIRP is "getting from here to there". It is great to have a nice scenery location to leave from and arrive at, but 90% of your time will be in the air "getting there".  One of the reasons we "place" scenery where we do is so people will get to see unusual and breathtaking scenery ALONG THE WAY.

So for anyone starting out, just pick what you want and run that one ... then from "there" ... pick another one, add it and fly that one.  It makes the whole experience a journey ...

After getting a new PC, this is the way I'm going about reinstalling everything.  Even with my ORBX stuff ( and I have all regions, plus most addon airports) I've only installed one at a time to fly circuits, explore the area, enjoy the scenery.   After a few NWT sceneries (Yellowknife, etc), I'll start reinstalling all my MM sceneries.  Actually, I just have to reactivate them, but one at a time and getting into the different Dispatches, Trip Tics, maps and all.  It'll be after the start of the new year before I'm done......gotta love it!

Hi - Jim1245 here - I did a lot of flying in the "old" Misty Moorings and really enjoyed it. Discovered the return a while back and decided to give it a try. I'm working my way through Plan G and just downloaded the 50% off REX. Seems to be a lot to learn so I might be asking a few questions. The site seems really well organized so I promise to try and find the answers before posting.

Jim ...

Use the Site Map and do a "search" on that page for what you might be looking for. If you don't find it there, then ask us (please!).  This means either we have something that is not clear or we don't have a reference to it on the Site Map ... which we want to be complete for folks just like you.  So sort of help us "beta" that thing ... we'll put in what is missing.  Often we have things buried deeply in the site that folks can't find, that is the purpose of the site map.  We're still "digging" for our own buried treasures! :-)  But save yourself time and ask. We should be able to point you to the answers or, if we don't have them we'll create an answer, post and document it on the site map.

Welcome aboard Jim, glad to have the newest member buying the beer!
The site is a 'gold mine' of information about RTMM and like Doug says it is probably there ya just have to find it!  There is so much to do in Misty's world you will be busy as the proverbial 'one armed paper hanger' just flying to all the great scenery provided by the developers.  Just take it one bite at a time and have fun 'getting there'.  It is the adventure that counts.

Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: Bradallen43 on January 04, 2012, 06:37:12 PM
Hi! Best advice from me is to install the required libraries first. Then just take on one location at a time. My choice would be to install Misty's Place first. Then fly there from Ketchikan. Then install any other place you choose. Just that one choice. Fly from Misty's there. Then back again. Then select a new place. And on and on you go from there.

Enjoy.

Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: stiletto2 on January 31, 2012, 11:19:19 PM
Hi,

My name is Rod  "Stiletto2" Jackson.  I have been flight simming for many years and really enjoy bush flying.  In addition, I have developed a little FSX scenery here and there and, years ago, was active in improving scenery for Falcon 4.0.

Right now I am finishing up a project that will be submitted to RTMM and will feature one of the first scenery addons to an ORBX Airport product. 

After the release of the wonderfully done ORBX PAKT and Service Pack 1, I still felt there was room for additional scenic detail along Ketchikan Harbor.   I was especially focused on  the area of Ketchikan just northwest of the cruise ship docks where Tongass Ave swings away from Water Street and heads up the harbor coast.  There you will find numerous float plane docks/businesses involved with floatplane transportation etc.

I got a real good look at it in 2010 since that is where the Coral Princess was docked and I was staring out from the stern and looking down at all the activity on these little docks.  ORBX PAKT (SP1) does not detail any of this along the harbor coast.  So, I decided to add a fictitious floatplane tour and transport service named Eagle Air to that area.   Before I knew it, I created pilings/boardwalks and multiple buildings around Eagle Air to try and capture what I had seen when I was there. 

I also felt the autogen in that area was a little thin so I filled in some of that and before long had added objects from downtown Ketchikan all the way northwest to The Plaza Shopping Center area.

So after adding over 300 objects to the Ketchikan Harbor area, I am just about ready to submit the Ketchikan Harbor scenery addon for PAKT (SP1) to RTMM for final review.

If you have been looking for more detail in that area, this scenery addon may be for you.  And what fun it is to take some of those tourists off the cruise ship, pick them up at Eagle Air and fly them out to places like Dan's Hideway, Thorne Bay Island Retreat and even Misty's Place.

Stay Tuned......

Rod

Welcome Rod........you'll love it here.  Lot's of nice folk and great scenery in the PFJ  area.  Your enhancement will be a welcome addition to the Ketchikan area.  Like you I was there in June of 2010 on the Golden Princess cruise ship.  Wish I could have stayed longer and taken a float plane tour from Eagle Air!     :-)

I did a multiplayer flight yesterday for the first time, and we were astonished at what has happened here.. the Orbx scenery is magnificent, and ALL the addons are fantastic. Buddy and I were awestruck by the vistas, and amazed at all the great little strips that have been done for the area. It's great to be back.

I live in the UK, I've never been west of the Mississippi, but Return to Misty Moorings feels like coming home  :)

Hi, I'm SkipperMac, aka Norman. I've been flightsimming since the late 80's, but haven't been doing much for the past year or so as I was driving my old pc just a bit too hard with all the goodies ORBX provided (and some extras from Brad as well) in the Pacific North West. So I bit the bullet and built something more suitable ... then bought a house which has taken up too much time since the new year. But finally I got my "flight station" sorted, downloaded ALL the Misty scenery (ok, I haven't installed CIRP ... yet!) ... and here I am.

Good to be here, good to see FSEconomy being talked about, and good to be flying again ... virtually.

I barely ever register to forums but this just have to be complimented. Great work and really there is bunch of us out there that appreciate the effort. Just some minor thing, I find your site by looking for Dodo skin and of course it is the great skin, but you are hard to find and easy to stay with, so i think you must make yourself more visible to the world.
Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the kind comments. We should have even more visitors soon because PC pilot magazine is planning a feature article about Return to Misty Moorings written by Peter Stark. It will be in one of their upcoming magazines soon. So keep a look out for it.

Signed up a few days ago, so hello everyone. My virtual FS career goes back to 2002 and before. I flew basically airliners (still do) but it seems to be shifting towards bush flights. For some reason the American North-West coast has my special interest. Have flown most of the globe from Terra del Fuego to Siberia, but here's where I always come back to. Hence, its pure logic to join Misty Moorings.  :)

Welcome to Misty's Place, Slowhand.  It's good to have you here.  Since I found Misty's a year and a half ago, I rarely fly out of the area.  It's got everything, runways, terrain, weather, eye candy, missions, flightplans, picture gallery, AI traffic, Virtual airline, and all you people . . . too much good stuff in one place.   :D

Hello to all of you !

Two months ago me and my wife were so lucky to enjoy the astonishing nature of British Columbia. A.o. in Vancouver we made a great scenic tour with the DHC-2 Beaver and became fans of this beautiful plane ! As a 500+ hours FSX-enthousiast I would like to fly more on this bush-plane (or similar) and discover the beauties of the 'Misty Moorings'-area.   

Happy flying !

Hi there, GoBeeCee, and welcome to the nicest place to fly in FSX.

Your forum handle reminds me of a family anecdote:  About ten years ago, on a typical Canadian crappy-weather day in early March, my wife looked out the window to see a scrawny young black cat eating some "ugly food" we'd left out for the crows.  She figured it was pretty doggone hungry to be eating that stuff, so she put a bowl of kibble out for it.  The cat vanished when he saw her.

The poor little guy was obviously feral -- or close to it -- but he came back during the night and licked the bowl clean.  Next day, the black cat was there, hiding in a nearby bush, and we fed it again.

Each day at supper time, we put a bowl out and I could watch "The Black Cat" through the window as he ravenously devoured whatever we'd put out for him.  Our two indoor cats got into the act and watched the daily proceedings with great interest.

In the interest of laziness, "The Black Cat" got shortened to "Bee Cee".  But even that got modified over time to "Beecie" -- accent on the first syllable with the same inflection as "greasy".

As the following winter approached, I built an insulated "house" for him and installed it under some foundation shrubs, whereupon Beecie spent most of that winter sleeping under the snow, and feeding at the front door, twice a day during winter.

One rotten, scabby-weather day in February, we opened the door to put his bowl out and Beecie stumbled inside.  He shook-off the snow, looked around and decided to stay. 

Being worried about disease and bugs, a quick trip to the vet was in order, but we were surprised to find he had zero problems!  So we brought him home and he's remained contentedly as one of our indoor cats, ever since.

He's getting a tad old now (we estimate he's 12), but he still has the honour of being the most affectionate cat we ever had -- bar none -- which is kinda at odds with his initial feral state.  Nowadays, in our new apartment, he snoozes each afternoon away on "his footstool" on the sundeck.

Unfortunately, Beecie still tends to eat like he's still a starving waif, but overall, he's a happy, if somewhat fat, cat!

Welcome Slowhand & GoBeeCee.   This forum is tops if you like bush flying in the ORBX Pacific Fjords, FSAddon Tongass Fjords and (soon) ORBX Southeast Alaska scenery areas.   There are many RTMM addon sceneries to experience and RTMM even provides missions both for planes and for boats.

Make sure you bookmark this place for there are also many good things to come in the future.   The RTMM team is a dedicated group and should make your stay very enjoyable.  Doug Linn, our fearless leader is on vacay right now, but I am sure you will be hearing from him when he gets back in a day or two.

If you have any questions just ask and you will get a response pretty quickly.

Have fun!

Hello GoBeeCee,
     You're in the right place, that's for sure.  Welcome to Misty's.  When I read your screen name the first thing I thought was, . . . they must be from Vancouver, or close.  I live in Bellingham, just south of the border.  I also am a beaver driver (virtually).  The Aerosoft beaver X is my weapon of choice.  Again, welcome.

GoBeeCee,

Welcome aboard RTMM.  I'm sure Slowhand relishes your showing up 'cause' the new guy has to buy the beer, so he's off the hook now.
I think you'll like the crew and adventure here at RTMM.  We are new and growing all the time, take your time and read and study the posts etc. here and you will be amazed at all the guys have accomplished in the short amount of time since RTMM became a reality.

No, I'm not living near Vancouver, and yes, I'm inhabitant of a small town in the southern part of Holland, near Eindhoven. The nice story about the 'Black Cat' BeeCee strikes me since I do also intend to stay a 'while' on Misty's place.

So, a virtual 'cheers' on my account !   :D :D

Kind regards,

Zoran ... welcome aboard. People are flying about anything that can get in the air and maybe float without sinking!  Sort of "your" choice.  If you go to the enhancements page, there are some great repaints to download there of some of the favorites here at the site.  Glad to have you aboard.

Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: Bradallen43 on August 14, 2012, 05:17:43 PM
I absolutely love the Carenado C185 "Bush" package. Also the Carenado, Cessna "Stationair" 206 package that they offer with the amphibians in it.

I also recommend the Flight Replica's Super Cub package for a huge selection of Bush planes and amphibians, float planes, etc. Top notch.

Also, make sure to get the "AccuFeel" addon and use that with your aircraft too. Nothing like landing on a grass or dirt strip and hearing your plane groan and creak as it rattles across the ground.

Welcome to RTMM and we hope you stay around.

Welcome Zoran,
     There's alot of reading to do, so grab a cup of  whatever you drink and settle in.  It's nice to have people from distant points around the globe.  Glad to hear from you in Bangkok.  I'll throw my 2 cents in on the plane issue.  I use the Aerosoft DeHavilland DHC-2 Beaver X amphibian mostly, but also get a kick out of the Piper J-3 Cub and the RealAir Scout amphibian.  Oh, and there's alot of chopper work to be done, so the helicopter of your choice is also something to consider.  I have several, from the MD500 to the EH101.  A DC-3 repaint is available for Misty's also.  So many planes, so little time. 

See ya around the forum.  8)

Hi Zoran,

Welcome to Return To Misty Moorings.  You almost have to check in every day there is so much happening.   Lots of great scenery to explore.   If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.....you will find that helpful response is usually pretty quick around here.

Have fun!

Zoran ... know what you mean about the weather. For about 4 months the RTMM team was working on CIRP ... the ice stations, up on the glaciers above Misty Fjords. (Brrrrrr). When we were finished, most of us were flying in the tropics for a few weeks just to get warmed up again! :-)

Hi. My email says jsapair but call me JJ if you would. I live in Nor Cal and have I've been an FSX simmer for a few years now. Came across RTMM a while ago but didn't have the Acceleration Pack. I do now. Bought a new  hot rod 'puter and pretty much dedicated it to simming. If you want the basic specs its a full tower, water-cooled case, i7 3820 quad 3.8 ghz, 16 gigs RAM, Nvidia GTX 670 2gig GPU. I just downloaded and installed the FTX PFJ program and now I'm ready for some RTMM flying. I also enjoy flying the heavies on ILS but the low and slow small planes in the NW is where my heart's at. What I enjoy the most about simming in general is, on my airlines, the pilot can have a cocktail or two :)

Count on a 6 pack of warm O'Douls from me. I'm a whiskey drinker myself. Got run over by a whiskey truck when I was 9. Been with the driver and his family ever since, although with a slight limp. Heard my parents were with the circus but never could confirm that.

Jeff, speaking of machines...yikes..you've got one. I went from a basic Dell desktop to having one built from Cyberpower. My wife was out of town when I ordered it. The thing is a monster. Now I can't find my wallet and I sleep with one eye open. Probably a coincidence.

I investigated that route and found it cheaper to go this way... I  thought. What I didn't realize at the time was they had a physical presence in CA. Tax and shipping to the tune of $300. I'll deal with it though...great machine regardless. Take care pal.

Hey JJ,

Welcome to RTMM.  I know you and I have already chatted but I am happy to see you introduce yourself to all here.  I think you will find that we are a pretty active and helpful bunch.

I have to agree with Jeff on multi monitors.   I currently have 6 monitors, two desktop computers and a laptop in use for my "cockpit".

Hard to believe my setup (except for the graphcis board) is now over two and a half years old.  Luckily, it had a lot of power to begin with and still does pretty well.  These are the detailed specs:

i7 980X @ 4.01 Ghz  | Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R | 12 GB DDR3 RAM | EVGA GTX580 3GB | 2x 256 GB Crucial SSDs | WD 1 TB HD | 3 ViewSonic VX2240w | Matrox Digtl TH2Go @ 5040 x 1050 | W7-64 Ultimate | TrackIR 5 | Prjct Magnta GAIFR Panel on AMD 3400+ & Hannspree 19" | GoFlight GF166A x 2 & GoFlight LGTII | Saitek Pro Flight Yoke | Simped Rudder | TM Cougar & TQS | Headset for VoxATC | Acer 18" & Keypad for GPS | T2330 Pentium & Acer 15" for Plan-G

I am looking forward to seeing some great scenery screenshots from you.  Have fun!

Hi all of you,

My name is Jan and i'm from the Netherlands.
I'm in to flightsimulator for a long time, it started when i told a friend i liked to navigate and wanted a game where i can do that, so he told me about FS98 and then all off it begun, i am the type who like the good all planes like the DC2, DC3, C47 Grumman Goose and so on as long they make noise and leaking oil.
I always as i remember loved being around in terrain with water, hills and forest, so the bushflying for me was born and where is the place to do that, i don't have to tell you, because you're there...........

I think you guys are lucky when you live overthere.

Greetings from a flat country  ;)

For those of you that don't speak Dutch, including myself, using Google Translation is fun. (Welcome! We hope you enjoy your time here at Return to Misty Moorings. As the newest member, you have to buy the beer!!

I hope I don't cut and paste something that isn't what I meant it was to be. I always worry about that. Like if I say, "It's great to have you here", I worry that it will come back in some language as: "You're not welcome here." Or something completely opposite of what I wanted to say.

But anyway, welcome to RTMM Jan and we hope you have a great time here.

Welcome to RTMM.   I think you will really enjoy this site.  There are a lot of friendly people and you can get a response pretty quickly.   

I live in Florida and it is pretty flat also.   Kinda hot now but great in the winter!  The good news is that the temperatures are much cooler in Misty Moorings area and the bush/hills/glaciers are a lot of fun.

Look forward to hearing more from you in the future.

Welcome Jan,
     We have members from all over the world.  It's good to add another pin in the map for Netherlands.  You're gonna like it here.  Get a cup of coffee and read the forums.  Any questions you may have will be answered.  I advise to take your time and install a couple of destinations first.  Then fly to them, and add more each day.  There are, I think, about 147 or so locations now.  Install the object libraries first so everything will show up right.  See you on the screenshots thread.  Welcome again. 8)

Hello fellow RTMM simmers,

I'm new to Misty Moorings, but not to FSX. I've been downloading some of the RTMM scenery and objects and getting things set up within Tongass Fjords, PFJ, and FTX PAKT, and I have to say . . . 'Thanks' for all the hard work and effort that has gone into this project. I've had a ball today just flying into some of the locations, such as Misty's Place, Yes Bay Lodge, Hollis, exploring new details within Ketchikan Harbour, etc. So much fun!

I live near KPDX, in the rural Oregon (USA) countryside. I hope to hang around the forum and learn a few things, and maybe even contribute a little.

By the seat of my pants,

Ted

You will find everyone quite helpful so if you have any quesitons...just post 'em and you will see a response pretty quickly.  I am sure you will enjoy some of the great scenes in Southeast Alaska courtesy of RTMM as well as the great ORBX and Tongass Fjords scenery packages.

Hi Rod,

I live just a few hundred meters from 7S3. I thought I saw you buzzing the back of my property!  ;)

Anyway, I've been getting familiar with the RTMM area by simply running some flight plans from Misty's Place and PAKT. I'm really impressed by all of the add-on scenery. And I already thought PFJ and Tongass were already excellent. Now they've really come alive! What fun!

Patrick,
welcome to the RTMM family.  Great bunch of folks here and I'm sure you will enjoy all the adventure of "the journey".  And remember the new guy has to buy the beer.
NeptuneP2V7 brings back many memories for this old Naval Aviator.  When I was a very young sailor just out of boot camp I was stationed at NAS Los Alomitos and begged a ride in my first Navy airplane on a weekend.  It was the P2V.  20 years later I made my last flight as pilot in command in a Navy aircraft and it too was the P2V-7 training reservists at NAS Glennview.

Please let me congratulate you chaps on an outstanding website!!  It looks like soooo much fun and am very keen to sink my teeth into some fantatsic adventures here at RTMM.

Thank you very much for letting me register.

welcome aboard RTMM.  As many others have already said there is so much to enjoy and experience here.  Read up as much as you can on the methods recommended for installing RTMM scenery and do not be intimidated by the sheer volume of what is offered.  One bite at a time will let you "eat the elephant" and have a great time at the same time.  RTMM is a vast experience to be savored slowly and deliberately.
Of course like the new guy everywhere your expected to buy the beer!  ;D

in the past there were a few multi-player efforts but lately they seem to have disappeared.  There were servers for it at one time but I'm not sure anything is available any longer.  Anybody know for certain?

Tim,
not really multiflying as you might have asked, but you could Northern Air Charters a try.
It`s a Virtual airline related to bush flying, especially dedicated to the RTMM areas we love so much.
It`s not an offical part of RTMM but the founder of Vnac, Chris Losh, is very related to RTMM.

Vnac`s regulations are very open minded, so it`s in a lot of aspects different to other VA`s.

I have one question?   I have downloaded dieters Plan-G files, but "Misty's Place" and any other place with an ICAO does not appear with a "airstrip" icon?

What am i doing wrong?  Should I ask this question in an other part of the forum?

Tim,
do not forget about the 'search' function to see if the same or similar questions have been addressed in the forums plus the forum titles give a clue as to what type of question are posted in them.

In this case let me direct you to the Misty's Place section (click on that at the top).  In the table shown pick Database updates and download the "cvs" file by Dieter.  They will update Plan G so it shows all the RTMM location in the various scenery areas the cvs files cover.

Welcome at RTMM.
As klaus said, take all time to discover the RTMM sceneries.
We will get soon, we hope so, a new area for which we have many ideas.
OrbX SAK will be a very nice country, a nice place for bush flying, and we are impatient to add there what we have added to PFJ and Tongass.

I can see a problem from the new publicity bringing in fresh blood to RTMM.  We will just have to require all newbies to buy one round of beer so nobody slips through the cracks with multiple new RTMM members joining the ranks the same day.
Welcome aboard to Dental12 and jeywhy as already pointed out we are like a big ol' family 'round' here.  Need to know something just ask.  I can say with certainty that you could spend at least a week just reading and becoming familiar with all the great content available on the board before you even downloaded your first scenery location so dig in, enjoy and let the journey begin!

Jean-Mi,
welcome aboard RTMM and a return to VFR.  Low, slow and under the weather for the "journey", as you become familiar with RTMM and all it has to offer I think you will rarely fly the 'tubeliners' any more.  I'm sure if you have a question it will be answered without too much of a problem due to language difficulties.  We will work it out I'm sure.
Belgium has excellent beer I understand.  This is good because the new guy has to buy the beer!  ;D

I've dusted off FSX, some ORBX files and Tongass X, signed up and walked thru the Dispatch door.

What a great site! I "should of, would of, could of" years ago but WWI, WWII, Korea, IL-2, Falcon 4, DCS, all had me flying and fighting.

What a pleasure to fly "low 'n slow" without getting blown out of sky or having to constantly "check 6".

Old habits do die hard though. I'll be using Plan-G as a kneeboard to navigate with for a while.

Hey plug_nickle,
welcome aboard RTMM!  As you have already discovered the 'journey' is the icing on the cake.  With over 130 destinations to fly to that makes a lot of 'journeys' to enjoy.  Of course that is only part of the package with AI shipping and A/C to make the journey even more interesting it just never seems to end.  The development team is constantly at work bringing new and better things to RTMM.
Of course Jean-Mi will be happy to be off the hook on buying the beer because as the "newbie" your on the hook for keeping the bar stocked.  ;D
An Old Fighter Duel call sign is familiar to me.  My 'Spud' comes from my real life call sign as a Naval Aviator.  I hail from Idaho so it was a natural progression for my call sign.

Post by: DaveLTB on December 11, 2012, 01:17:31 PM
Hello All

How on earth does an ancient old South African like me wind up at Misty Moorings?

I have been an admirer of Holger Sandmann for more years than I care to remember.
Now that I have reached as stage in life where one asks what is important, my answer would have been "get a PPL and go shares with someone in a light aircraft. Unfortunately I am not able to do that anymore - at 60 years old my eyes just don't cut it anymore. So I decided to return to Flight-Simming again, but more seriously this time. If I can't do it for real then I'll just have to make flight simulation "as good as it can possibly get". I have just built a multi-monitor setup - 9 monitors powered by 5 high-end PC's, and now it's time to get stuck into some serious flying.
Since Holger Sandmann is now attached to ORBX, I started raking notice of  ORBX sceneries.  This means I would have to look at Australia, New Zealand in the southern hemisphere or the Pacific North West of the Americas in the norther hemisphere.  Australia and NZ are a South African's natural sporting enemies, so I would have great difficulty relating to either place. I am also passionate about spectacular sceneries, so here I am.  8)

May I be so bold as to ask the first question:
I have never done any bush-flying in FSX before. My FSX  experience has so far been on heavy jets and old multi-prop (notably A2A B377) aircraft. I realize that to fly seriously around RTMM one needs to become very proficient with one's virtual aircraft - i.e., another lengthy learning curve. So, my first question: which aircraft do most of you use for Bush Flying? I am currently looking at A2A's Piper Cub or Aerosoft's BeaverX.

Greetings from Cape Town at the Southern tip of Africa

Thanks for your warm welcome, Klaus
Actually, the system is very small and compact.
Attached is just a small quick Pic of the system.
If you count you will actually see 11 monitors.The two on the bottom left are not actually connected to the Wideview system, but instead they are connected to the Wideview server via WideFS where FS commander is linked to the system. So, if you like, there are actually 11 monitor and 6PCs in the entire system.
Biggest problem is that it gets rather hot in the room because it is so small!  :P

Wow Dave, that's some rig you got there.  You know we're all drooling.  Except maybe Rod.  He's set up pretty fancy too.  Welcome to RTMM.  I'd be happy to tell you that I am a beaver driver.  I fell in love with the Aerosoft Beaver X last year, and fly it almost exclusively.  I have a thread in the screenshots called "Beaver Shots", if you want to have a look.  (it's the thread with 1600+ views, can't imagine why.)  The A2A cub is nice too, for a stroll through the scenery.  If you have any questions or problems, (that aren't already covered in the forum) just ask.  We love to solve problems.  It helps everyone.  It will be interesting to see your FSX screenshots.   ???

PS-Thanks for the beer! ;D

OK, I'm buying - Step right up to the bar at Misty's Place, Ladies and Gentlemen - Barman, bring on the virtual beer if you would be so kind...

Thanks for the welcome and aircraft insights. I'm looking for a great plane that I can spend some serious time learning.
Anyone else have any experience with either of these three aircraft?

By the way, is there any way of buying a real round - in the form of a donation - surely this wonderful site has expenses ???

The Aerosoft beaverX looks faster and more complex, but it seems to be a port-over from their FX9-version. Does this manifest anything negative? Lovely screenshots, Jeff - particularly those using the Fed-Ex paint. Your excellent "Beaver Shots" post reads like a review - very useful.

I haven't noticed anything "negative".

I'm just a member here of several months, but I'd like to welcome the new members to RTMM. These are some wonderfully talented and gracious folks who are always willing to lend a hand when needed. And they've been known to down a pint or three on occasion!  ;)

Thanks for the welcome and aircraft insights. I'm looking for a great plane that I can spend some serious time learning.
  • The A2A cub looks like it is exquisitely modeled, but is it not too slow for getting around the whole RTMM area?
  • The Aerosoft beaverX looks faster and more complex, but it seems to be a port-over from their FX9-version. Does this manifest anything negative? Lovely screenshots, Jeff - particularly those using the Fed-Ex paint. Your excellent "Beaver Sots" post reads like a review - very useful.   
  • I looked at the advertising for the Lionheart Pacer but couldn't find a review anywhere (bad Google, bad boy  ;) ).
Anyone else have any experience with either of these three aircraft?

Dave--The A2A Cub is a standard setter and a joy to fly on shorter low-and-slow runs. On the other hand, the Flight Replicas Super Cub offers bush and amphibious variations and has considerably more power for maneuvering and slightly longer flights.

The new Lionheart Super Pacer PA20/22 180 is a very nice rendition with custom gauge panels, floats, bush, and tri-cycle variations, and good power. It's a joy to fly. I think Lionheart has done a great job. I do wish it had an amphibian version, however. Regardless, I find myself flying the Super Pacer a lot lately.

The Beaver has those wonderful classic looks, with decent power, load capacity, and range. But, Aerosoft's BeaverX, IMHO, is a little long-in-the-tooth. I really wish A2A would consider a remake of this classic plane.

Carenado has the Cessna 185, and I think the 206 (neither of which I have flown), but lots of people like them a lot. On my list for future purchases.

If Carenado's C-208 had an amphib model, it would be another great choice. But, alas, it doesn't.

There is a free version of the Pilatus PC-6 Porter that is quite good. Definitely worth a look.

There are numerous other very worthy bush flyers available, but the one that seldom gets any time inside my hangar is Lionheart's Quest Kodiak. This plane really can do it all. It has the power (750 hp) and speed for longer flights, tremendous load capacity (10-people plus cargo pod), and the amazing capability for landing or taking off on <700 feet. It comes in wheels and floats/amphib variations, HD textures, and of course, a Garmin G1000 triple glass cockpit. Definitely my go-to bush flyer.

Those are just a few options to consider. You will absolutely love flying any of these in the Misty Moorings. I hope to see you in the skies!

Safe flights,

Ted

Hello Ted
Thanks for your detailed reply. This kind of post really helps.

I have a question:
I had a look at Lionheart's Quest Kodiak and some reviews and it looks really good. Having some glass cockpit familiarity, this looks less intimidating to me than some. However, does your argument against the Aerosoft Beaver not also apply to Lionheart's Quest Kodiak? It was last updated/patched in 2009 and appears to be another FS9-to-FSX updated portover. Is the aircraft FSX quality?
How does she fly? And even more importantly, how good is it for sightseeing - (after all that's what RTMM is all about, is it not?)

Hi guys,

Dom here.  Just want to say hi.  Been a fan since I purchased the original Misty Fjords for FS2004.  Since then I've purchased the FS2004 and FSX version of Tongass and love it.

I joined today, really just to say thanks for all the work you guys do.  I'm mostly an X-Plane user at the moment as I primarily use OSX now, but it's your scenery files and enhancements which always bring me back to FSX, so I just want to say thanks for all your hard work

The A.I shipping I downloaded today is amazing!!

Many thanks.

Hi,

well, I'm Rudi and stumbled some weeks ago over beaver and MD500 repaints called Misty Mooring. I liked the nice style but didn't go deeper what's behind Misty. Today I came across the paintings again and got curious what's behind this name.

I'm in some way overwhelmed from all the wonderful sceneries you've done. I installed Misty's place and like it much because I'm a great fan of the areas PNW, PFJ and Tongass and now I'm here.

Short comment to my person. I'm a retired German living in Thailand now since more then 6 years. I guess in 2004 I had the FS9 but stopped playing with it. In 2012 I saw my old Joystick and installed FSX. I've more time now and I like flying Helis in FSX but also small air-crafts like the Beaver.

Thanks
Rudi

Welcome Rudi
I'm also new here, and am still finding my way through this enormous site.
The guys (and gals?) here have really put in a huge amount of work - the site needs nearly as much exploring at the RTMM area itself.
This site is a prime example of how wonderful our hobby really is.

Hi guys,

thanks a lot for the warm and friendly welcome. I feel very fine here and to read all the great information keep me busy for a long time.

I already downloaded some great sceneries and I love them all. Just did a flight to Aiken Camp with my MD500 in Misty Mooring painting and guess what - I could make the landing in front of the house! I don't know if I can do it again.  ;D

Maybe I can ask my technical question here for short. I read here that one should use the old Plan-G version it would work better for our needs. I installed now both (V.2/V.3) and can't see why V.2 is better. I like V.3 much more but as a rookie I may not see the advantage of V.2 yet. Can somebody enlighten me?

Thanks a lot for the wonderful Misty website
Rudi

Hi Rudi,
also a big warm welcome here on RTMM!!!! :)
Great seeing an other helicopter fan found this beautiful place here.
Take all the time you need and take a look here. You will soon notice there`s a lot to discover.
The RTMM sceneries should keep you busy for quite some time, I`m sure.

Regarding your question about PlanG:
We recommend v2 because there`s google maps used for displaying the maps. We found this much superiour as the maps are very accurate. Their level of detail fit very well for vfr-flights in the misty`s region. PlanG v3 is using now OpenStreetmap data. Openstreets based maps are less accurate than the google maps charts.

A big "Prosit" from Munich, Klaus

Post by: spirit_66 on January 03, 2013, 08:46:13 PM
Hi Klaus,

what a funny coincidence: I'm from Munich too but live now in Chiang Mai/Thailand. "Prost"  :D

Well, about Plan-G V.2. I just noticed that I can't get any map on the screen because of an occurring script error. I guess I need to use V.3 and live with those maps.

About flying the Heli. I'm just a beginner with these air-crafts but it gives me a lot of thrill and fun. I'm trying hard to improve my skills. Since I've a G940 control unit it's improving a lot.

Thanks for the warm welcome and "Prost" from Thailand

Post by: Dieter on January 04, 2013, 02:10:11 AM
As Klaus already posted, PlanG v2 (latest version) provides a much better and more accurate map than v3. That's a big advantage for VFR flights.
(I you can't get the v2 map at this time with your installation you cannot compare.)

- did you install as administrator?
- you must have latest IE9 version installed!
- follow instructions on page 105 in the PlanG user manual
- reinstall DotNet4 and/or Microsoft SQL Server Compact 4.0

Post by: spirit_66 on January 04, 2013, 06:32:34 AM
Hi Dieter,

thanks for the hints to my problem.

Well, step by step.

- Of course did I install as admin
- I've already IE 10 and Windows 8
- The recommendation in the PlanG manual didn't fit for me and the MS website said "it's not for your system"
- I already had DotNet4 but did the MS SQL Server Compact 4.0 but nothing has changed after repair PlanG V.2

The script doesn't slow down the PC, it's a script error. I guess I'll stay with PlanG V.3. Better to have a not so good map than no map.

Anyway thanks for taking your time

Welcome aboard RTMM Rudi,
always great to meet new folks.  Glad your enjoying the scenery so far it is some wonderful work by our developers.  You did not mention anything about installing all the required libraries in your introduction.  Be sure and explore the site extensively and if you have not yet installed the libraries you will need those ASAP to make the scenery display at its fullest potential.  Look in Misty's Place (top of page menu) and click on Object Libraries for a complete rundown.
Of course as the new guy you will have to buy the beer so everybody head to Misty's Place and belly up to the bar!  ;D

When flying  helis it`s important you have the right settings for your contollers in FSX. Your controller settings should be set to very sensitive (sliders all the way to the right). If not your contollers will always act with a small lagtime. helicopters must be controlled very smooth and with very small and precise contoller inputs.

If you are interested a step deeper in heli flying in FSX, you should also visit hovercontol.com. This site is exclusively for heli-pilots in flightsimming. You will find there lots of help.

@Klaus

thanks for the hints. I'll try flying with most sensitive settings and feel the difference. I already knew the hover control website and like their suggestions. Their freeware heli is a wonderful piece.

@spud

Well, I already installed all the basic scenery libraries recommended here from Misty and start to enjoy the nice trips or missions. This may keep me busy for a while.  ;)

The beer today is all on me, of course.  ;)

Hi guys!

Brand new here, but quite familiar with FSX and FTX, but was looking for a "reason" to go out and explore.. I think Misty Moorings is exactly what I was looking for!

I think my libraries are all set up correctly, did a nice flight from PAKT to Misty Moorings (the ICAO for MM is escaping me right now) and was quite impressed! What a beautiful approach over the water!

Getting settled in for my first mission (or Dispatch I think you guys call them?) and I'm quite excited. I'll try to post some screenshots in the appropriate forum when I'm all done.

So far I am very impressed with the website and Misty Moorings in general, you guys sure have a lot to offer, and the attention to detail and the little stories that accompany everything are fantastic. Thank you guys for doing this!

Happy flying!

Hello AK416,
     Welcome.  Thanks for taking the time to say hi.  Misty's place is PF20, and the water approach is PF21.  The dispatches will take you on a tour of the cabins, as you "inspect them" and show you where they all are.  Getting there is all the fun!  I like the taking off and landing parts the best.  ( . . . and the trickier the better for my beaver.)

Welcome and happy to see you here. Our fanbase has been growing but we still keep it personal. And we take it personally too. And in this case, it's not a bad thing. Any help you need with our stuff and all you have to do is ask. We'll probably be able to find a resolution to the issue.

Now all you have to do is take your time, try to see the sights, read the narrative and take it all in. Oh, and buy the next round at "Misty's Place". That's a given. Right Spud? He'll be in here shortly I'm sure. Whenever another newbie shows up, Spud will belly up to the bar alongside. He's our resident whip cracker when it comes to what goes on around here and enforcing rule number one. Which is the newest member has to buy a round for everyone in "Misty's".  :D

Thanks for the kind words. We appreciate it.

AK,
don't listen to those guys.  I'm just a pussycat, but ....  I will have that cold one at Misty's Place thank you. 
Unless I had a few too many with Rudi I believe the Dispatches list which scenery you are required to have for each.  I'd recommend doing one dispatch at a time with its associated scenery.  That method will help with trouble shooting if there is a problem. 
The shotgun downloading it all and installing will make it a lot harder to determine where there may be a problem.  Slow and careful will always let you know there is a problem somewhere before your scenery library is loaded up with the 100+ destinations RTMM has to offer.

Thanks for the warm welcome  :)

I did the first dispatch last night and was amazed! What a great time it was. It was quite nice to fly and learn some back story on the general area and specific locations. The music was a pleasant surprise as well, and worked quite well!

I have been doing the dispatches one at a time, and installing the necessary scenery as needed, and disabling the stuff I'm not using for the dispatch. I love the details like the orcas and dolphins, the diving birds and jumping fish! Admittedly, a trout gave me a good scare when landing at the first cannery, I was not expecting that haha!

This is really my first single player experience I have had aside from a few of the tutorial and default missions included with FSX. I have been a long time simmer, but only got into flight simulation about January this year. I flew briefly in FSX before moving over to Microsoft Flight and really enjoying the multiplayer aspect of flight sim. A few friends and I who enjoyed flying together eventually created a community around it, but once Microsoft ceased development, we transitioned to FSX and now have quite a popular and active community! (I wont plug the site here, but it is in my profile if curiosity gets the best of you :)) I think I may have to introduce our community to Misty Moorings, as we are all big fans of Orbx and specifically the PFJ/PNW area.

Had a fantastic time on my first dispatch last night and looking forward to starting my second here shortly. Thank you all for making this happen, I really appreciate all the time and effort you guys have put into this. What a great experience, and all for free! So far, no troubles to speak of, had to do a bit of googling to find one or two of the libraries as some of the links werent working, but really was no trouble. Everything seems to work fine as long as you read the instructions first! ;)

Thanks again everyone, sorry for the long winded post, I'll try to be more brief next time. Happy flying!

Good day,

Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jordan, I am 25 years old, I have my CPL(H) and I am currently flying in RL out of Fort Nelson,BC CYYE. I have been playing FS since I was about 10 with CFS and FS98.

I have many payware a/c such as most of the PMDG and the Cerasim helicopters.

I found this website by accident today while looking on Vatsim and Northern Air Charter. Am I ever happy I found this! The scenery addons that your community has produced look amazing! I just bought Acceleration when I read on the website that it is a requirement, since I only have the regular FSX right now.

Looking forward to picking up all of the required ORBX and Tongass Fjords then head up to those mountain pads and Remote cabins!

In advance, thank you to all who have made these amazing addons.

Welcome Jordan,
I believe you will find a great group here at RTMM.  If you like low, slow, in the trees flying you have found the right place.  Take some time and explore the site, you will be surprised at the vast amount of information available besides the scenery.   Now that SAK has been released by ORBX you will want to get that as well.  RTMM is already at work on scenery for that region.  We work PNW, and SAK by ORBX as well as Tongass Fjords X and they all fit together like a glove.
Oh, just in case you didn't know the new guy buys the beer so meet us at the bar at Misty's Place ASAP.  ;)

As you've already seen, we have a keen affection for the "FNG" at "Misty's Place". Also, to add to what Spud said, our creme of the crop region is "Pacific Fjords" by ORBX/FTX. That's our bread and butter area for sure. We're just now beginning our exploration into SAK along with everybody else.

Klaus is our resident staff "Whirlybird" fan and I'm sure you'll get some input from him on where to fly choppers at in our scenery addons.

Welcome Peter and Jordan,

There is a lot happenng at RTMM and plenty of scenery to see.    With the release of SAK, the staff is hard at work on things to come for that area, but for now there are many, many hours of flying ahead of you just to see the scenerying the Pacific Fjords offers not to mention Tongass.

Have fun!

Hi, I'm peebee (Phil). I've just signed up. I've been flight simming for quite a few years now but only really got into bush flying when I installed Orbx PNW.

Peebee (Phil),
welcome aboard RTMM you have found one of the best 'homes' for low n' slow in the bush for FSX scenery possible.  We are continually working on more and better scenery for our 'core areas', PFJ, SAK and Tongass Fjords X.  Take your time and browse the site and discover all RTMM has to offer.  Be sure and download and install the various scenery object libraries that the scenery requires to display properly so your experience will be successful.  Great group of people that are helpful and friendly, always willing to help if you have a question or problem.  Just keep it high enough to not scare the wildlife!  ;D

Oh and lest we forget, being the "New Guy" you will have to meet at the bar at Misty's Place to buy the beer!   ::)

Hello guys!
I'm brand new here, have been 'simmering' since a year now, so i do have not so much experience. But i managed to install all the recommended things, puuuuh, hard work. But in return i had the best flight ever(Dispatch#2). Thank you so much, i am very impressed with the website. Best regards from Germany, Konrad

Welcome Konrad. And thank you for taking the time to install the object libraries and such. Yes it's a painstaking process but now, you can fly to anyplace we've ever done and see it as we designed it. That's worth it I think.

So enjoy your time at RTMM and be sure to stop by Misty's Place and do what all FNG's have to do, buy everybody a beer!

(I wish Misty's really existed, because I'd never have to pay for a drink again!)

Hi I'm John, just love this site and hope that I will be able to spend a lot of my time here.

I'm a P3D user and would like to say that so far everything (Tongass Fjords, 9 of the 12 objects) work very well
using the Estonia migration tool. I might need some help to find the last 3:-)

I have Orbx PNW,PNJ and SAK so will be busy exploring everything that Return to Misty Mooring has to offer. Well done everyone involved in making such a superb site.

Cheers

John

Post by: spud on April 06, 2013, 04:03:41 PM
John,
welcome to RTMM, great group here I think you will find.  As far as 9 of the 12 objects working, I assume your speaking about the scenery tester at Annette Island.  What are the 3 not working for you?  Do you have Tongass Fjords X scenery from Silver Cloud Publishing?  That is a must have because it fills in the gap between PNW and SAK along the coastline.  The RTMM scenery uses objects from TFJ X libraries for some of the scenery we do.  Acceleration also has library objects that RTMM uses so that should be added to FTX if you do not have it.
Now all that boring stuff out of the way the gang will meet you at Misty's Place bar so as the new guy you can buy the beer!   ;D :D ;)

Yes I have the wonderful Tongass Fjords X so I have so much to explore. Just installed the Toongass Fjords AI shipping package which is awesome.
The 3 objects that I am having difficulty obtaining are nos. 4, 9, and 11
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: stiletto2 on April 06, 2013, 06:46:24 PM
John,

I assume you did the downloads and installed the libraries as instructed in the Scenery Object Tester Section for those three numbers.   Can you verify that those 3 libraries......OZX, Woody's  EZ Rocks, Boulders and Snowdrifts and RWY12....are indeed entries in you Scenery Library.

The entries in you scenery library should be something like.......   OZx_NA, woody's EZ_rocks_Boulders_snowdrifts, Rwy12 Library. 

It depends exactly on what you named the folder with the Scenery and Texutre folders in it.   I tend to use the default names that download.

Rod
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: pipeorgan on April 07, 2013, 08:43:06 AM
Hi Rod

Thank you for your response. Yes I have the Scenery Object Tester installed. I did not find it too difficult with 9 of the objects but my problem with the remaining 3 is what to download from the sites which are shown.
With object 4, the building, when I go to the OZx site indicated I just cannot find it! what is the file/name I am looking for? 
With object 9 the EZ-Scenery Instructions are for FS9, do I ignore them and install it as FSX, actually P3D for me?
With object 11 when I locate this is says that it is for FS2004, is that the correct file to use, see http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/fslib.php?searchid=8568443?

John
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: spud on April 07, 2013, 04:19:36 PM
John,
yes the rwy12_1.zip says it is for FS2004 and so does the EZ-Scenery file but the objects all work with FSX as well.  Use caution though with the install of ez_1.zip here is a cut n' paste from one of our read me first files about installing it:

"2. The ez_1.zip file, once it's unzipped, will give you an executable file for installation.

3. MOST IMPORTANT STEP!!!! Install the files via the .exe file to a TEMP folder!! NOT DIRECTLY INTO FSX!!!! This installer was made for FS9 and might cause issues to FSX if you install it there by default! (We're not 100 % sure if it will, but it wasn't made for FSX so we avoided that and created a temporary folder for this file to install the scenery library to first.

4. The result will be a folder named "Addon Scenery". Inside of this folder is a folder named "EZ Scenery Library".

5. Take the new folder "EZ Scenery Library" and make sure that it also includes it's three sub-folders, (new-mdl, scenery, texture) and install that into your FSX "Addon Scenery" library and then don't forget to activate it in FSX as the normal scenery file INSTALLATION steps in the readme.txt show you."

FS9 (FS2004) scenery objects work fine in FSX.  The one thing with FS9 files are AI files.  If you install FS9 AI files into FSX they will prevent FSX AI files from working.  There is a program that will convert these FS9 AI files in your FSX installation and fix things just fine if you accidentally do ever install FS9 AI files in FSX.

Now the OZx libraries are hard to find due to 'stinkin' thinkin' at the OZx site.   Here is what to do to get the files.
1. Click the link on the Object Libraries page which takes you to the OZx site.
2. Click the green Download button at the top of the page.
3. Click on the black Agree & Download button.
4. The resulting screen has 7 files that can be downloaded but you only need two of them.
5. Download OZx_Libraries_1.0_install.zip
6. Download OZx_LIB_v1.1.zip
7. Install these two libraries into FSX.
8. Silently cuss under your breath about OZx making it so durn hard to figure out how to get the files!!!

Enjoy the other three objects in the Scenery Tester and in RTMM scenery.

I tried one or two of your sceneries just to see what was what and WOW!! Now I've downloaded every RTMM scenery I can get my hands on and having a total blast. (Still have a lot to install yet. Having too much fun exploring!)  Your sceneries, web page, layout, everything you guys provide is top notch and fantastic. I felt that I just had to donate a few dollars in appreciation, which I've never done at any other website before. I'll probably spend the rest of my life tooling around in my Beaver exploring all of the places you have created. Keep up the fantastic work and thanks a whole lot! Now back to the cockpit for more seat time.

Greetings!

Just discovered RTMM earlier today and decided to register while waiting for the Flight Replicas Super Cub package to download. I've seen references to this site and Tongass in many other forum posts and reviews but never checked it all out until now. Very fascinating!

I'm looking forward to learning more. Recently built a new system with FSX in mind, added FS Genesis, UTX, GEX, REX, as well as Orbx PNW and CRM. Also just loaded Plan-G for the first time. Looks like I'm gonna' have to get PBF and Tongass! I think this will all keep me pretty busy until, say, 2015?

Pretty impressive site here. Lots to learn!

Welcome aboard RTMM Bruce.  Low and slow is the mantra here and I think you'll like what you find.  Be sure and download and install the required libraries first because they are the key for seeing the scenery in all its splendor.
Be sure and take some time and explore the whole site because there is so much information and content it will take some tome to absorb it all.
Now the gang will meet ya at Misty's Bar for that beer the new guy has to buy!  ::)

Hi Bruce ... well, it's about time you showed up, we kept laying hints for you on the other forums :-)   Seriously, I'm sure you'll have a good time here with us.  There is a lot of depth to this site and it can get frustrating. The most difficult part is getting all the object libraries downloaded and installed (as Spud so deftly points out). But once that is done and you start flying the area, we hope you will be amazed.  We have a lot of fun putting this together for the community ... if you run into a problem (and odds are you will because of the complexity) ... just drop by here and we'll be very quick in giving you a hand.  Don't fight the frustration, answers can come quickly from the RTMM forum ... no such thing as a silly question.

As you'll soon discover, there are many very nice people around here in RTMM-Land, as well as no shortage of astonishing talent.  About the only advice I can proffer is to start small and go slowly;  don't be in a hurry to "get it all".  You'll see.

Hey Jim,
welcome aboard RTMM.  As already said pretty nice group around here.  Any questions just ask somebody will have an answer.  Like Highground says it is like eating an elephant ya gotta do it one bite at a time.  One exception to that is the required libraries those you need to get them all as the first thing you do so the scenery will show up like it is supposed to.
Now for the really important information for new guys.  You have to buy the beer at Misty's Place bar.  Belly up boys and girls Jim is buying.

Welcome aboard RTMM.  As you have already discovered friendly bunch 'round here'.  The site is extensive and loaded with great information and features take your time and browse everything.  First order of business to enjoy RTMM is to get All of the libraries needed to see everything in living color so to speak.  That will take a bit of effort and time of course but it is the starting point to the "experience" of RTMM.
Of course as already mentioned you will need some 'break time' so we will all meet you at Misty's Bar so you can buy the traditional new guy beers for everybody!

Well, thank you all for the kind welcome.
I will try to frequent Misty's bar and join the good life.
Maybe it is better to splash some dough on the server upkeep??
Better than alcoholic beverages. They seem to evaporate into thin air or befog the keen airman's eyes.... ;D

Hello there to all from Johannesburg South Africa.
  Found your site from a PC Pilot mag and what an absolute pleasure it has been, not only using the site, but the fast downloading and installations.   The cherry on top is the delight at 'seeing' the various places in the Alaska area as I'm one who was born with travel feet - the love of visiting far away places.  Sadly it has become out of reach to continue that sort of thing due to horrendous airfares.  My thank you to the guys who put the scenery together and made it such a pleasure to fly around in what was rather a bleak Microsoft area.  Tony

Welcome aboard RTMM Tony,
as you can see we are a friendly bunch of flying nuts!  I thing you will find more here than most sites on the web.  We are proud of what the group has become and continues to be.  Any questions, just ask.
Oh yeah, of course being the newbie you will have to set up the bar at Misty's Place for free beer for everybody.

Greetings from Berlin Germany, although I am from NYC :)
Love this website and all the work that has been put into it.
I have been flying mostly airlines in MSFS for as long as I can remember, but this place has revived the fun in GA and Bush flying.
Thanks!

Hey,...new blood!  Welcome to RTMM.  Low, slow and "in" the scenery is our mission.  Good bunch of folks here that are helpful and friendly.  Need any questions answered just ask.  Be sure and obtain all the libraries first because that is the starting point for all the great locations offered in the scenery download section.  Without the libraries you will not see it all.
So, Berlin huh?  That means you should know beer which, as the new guy, you will have to meet us in the bar at Misty's Place and treat everyone.
The beer is on mmendez!

Al, Danny,
welcome to this place guys!  As others have already mentioned take your time, read and enjoy RTMM.  The learning curve starts out abruptly with the libraries but after that is all low, slow and beautiful adventures flying BC and Alaska.  Don't forget to add TongassX and if you'll search the forums a bit there is a discount on its purchase for RTMM members.  It fills in a gap between ORBX PFJ and SAK plus being developed by Hoger Sandmann and Bill Womack is every bit as good as the ORBX scenery.
Now, gotta go find that steak truck and beer on the barbie!

Welcome Al and Danny,

As you're already sensing, this is the finest place on the planet for bush flying "low and slow". The staff here is dedicated and selfless and a greater bunch of guys and gals you'd be hard pressed to meet anywhere.

If ever you have questions about a scenery package, mission, or who's supplying the next round, just ask. The response will be quick. I don't think these guys ever sleep!  ;)

We're glad you found us. Happy flying!

Hello Everyone,

My name is Jerry and I've been flying computer sims since the early 1980's.  It all started for me on the Commodore 64 and WOW have things changed. 

I also blog about my flight sim activities from time to time and just recently launched a VA to focus on returning FUN back to the hobby of flight sim with a focus on bush flying.  Looking forward to exploring more of RTMM.

Hello Jerry and welcome to RTMM.  I hope you'll get settled in fine, and find everything you're looking for here in Misty's Place.  We always remind newcomers to read, read, read.  The forums are a wealth of information if you dig it out.  We also like to help if we can, so don't be shy.

Your VA sounds interesting, and I am sure to give it a whirl, as I did with the previous VNAC. (r.i.p. vnac :'( )  Good luck, and if you feel like buying a truck and feeling the wind in your hair, let us know. OK.   ;D
Thanks in advance, for the round of beers.  I like hefe weizen.  ;D

Happy Memorial Day weekend.

Hi Jerry,

Your VA sounds very interesting. As you already noticed we miss vNAC a lot. So I´d like giving your vAL a try if there are helicopters in your fleet. As you can see on my insignia, the whirlybirds are my passion flying in FSX..... :)

And yes, I also like Hefe Weizen (or Weißbier as we call it in Bavaria). It is said, in Munich we drink Weißbier instead of eating bread..... ;D ;D ;D

welcome aboard RTMM, remember the newbie has to buy the beer so the gang will gather at Misty's Place for the party.  Seriously, reading the site is the best advice for everybody because there is just so much available here that jumping into the middle will only confuse you for sure.
Starting place for downloads is ALWAYS the necessary libraries as everything is based on those files to display the outstanding scenery RTMM has developed for the community.
Have fun, ask questions and see ya at Misty's!

Greetings gentlemen,

It's nice to finally sign-up here. I primarily fly rotorcraft and occasionally GA fixed wing and now also becoming more interested in amphibians/float planes.

Your site is simply impressive and awesome! Probably one of the best flight sim sites I came across recently. Hoping for years of exciting adventures, discoveries and better appreciation of the scenic beauty of your covered regions through aviation and navigation in the virtual world.

Kudos for the great work and always keep the bar high in making the experience "as real as it gets"! 8)

Welcome Trex.  Speaking of keeping the bar high, the new guy has to buy a round of ol Moose Drool for the rest of us.   ;D  Pull up a chair and immerse yourself in all the goodness of RTMM as there is a LOT to explore.  Take your time to get all the required libraries installed first, then add sceneries a few at a time so you can enjoy the adventure of getting from here to there.  There are a group of sceneries called "Legacy" that are a good starter for explorations.  I know you'll enjoy your stay here and flying floats into remote areas will become an addiction.    8)

Thanks for your welcoming remarks guys! It's well appreciated. I would certainly visit Misty's Place more often-better if there is a designated/marked helipad whether on the ground or raised or floating anywhere nearby just in case Misty's airfield is packed with parked amphibians or wheeled regulars on any busy day so I can also land any of my helos and maybe take some locals or visitors for a free quick tour around the area  ;D

By the way, congrats for a very extensive collection of sceneries and other goodies to make the experience here more immersive!

nice insignia you have! Great, we have a new heliguy here.
While there`s  no specified helipad at Misty`s place at the Moment, there`s always a place for a helo Setting the skids on the ground.... :)

RTMM offers lots of sceneries with helipads included. Just a few examples, try CIRP-Bases, Owikeno Lake area, Doug`s Outfitters and much more....you will find really great places for your helos here. Just take some time and enjoy...

I'm a long time flight simmer, but a low-no time bush pilot!  Found this site through Jerry Taylor's Virtual Air Logistics organization which I also recently joined.  Looking forward to trying this Alaska flying on for size.  Thanks to all who have contributed so much for those of us who love flight simulation!

Hi Larry and welcome to "low and slow" RTMM!  Yes it a different kind of flying and in a beautiful area of our world. I started the old Misty Moorings site 10 years ago because I went up there and saw it first hand...and wanted to go back every day! So this was the next best way to visit and enjoy it. We get so used to the structure of flying in the real world...schedules, altitudes, airways, angels...at RTMM, we kind of toss all that off and just fly. Remember Jonathan Livingston Seagull? (Great little book). We are sort of leaving the "breakfast flock" behind and flying for the love if it rather than the necessity. Hope you enjoy this new FSX environment as much as we do. Welcome aboard. Enjoy the journey.

Post by: Bradallen43 on June 15, 2013, 08:58:34 AM
Welcome! I couldn't have said it any better as Doug just nailed it describing why we're here. As we always tell everyone, start with the object libraries and install those first.

http://return.mistymoorings.com/object_libraries/index.php

This takes up the most time during your early introduction to RTMM and can be confusing. We're here to help so just ask if you find something out of whack.

Once you think you have the object libraries all installed, verify that using our library object tester scenery. It's on the same page but a little bit down the scroll bar.

After that, I'd get the Legacy Collection of our scenery, install that and then take off, fly to Misty's Place and take care of that first round of drinks!

See you and have fun,

Brad

Hi everyone, I'm Gerald from the Melbourne FL area. I have been flight simming since FS 4 in the late 80's. Have always been fond of Alaska and Alaska flying, especially the PAJN-PAKT area and love the "low and slow" bush flying so TFX and SAK are my favorite areas. RTTM is a great site and I appreciate all that everyone does for us!

Hats off to Dan for getting me up and running on a weekend, sorting out an activation problem. Great customer service, thank you!

Welcome to RTMM Gerald & Larry,

You guys won't find any other FS site that makes virtual bush flying "as real as it can get" plus the top notch sceneries, addons and friendly bunch of guys in here. Don't forget to drop-by at RTMM's homebase Misty's Place (PF20) and try their halibut or poached salmon which simply are out of this world  :P

Also, don't forget to chip in or donate at least a buck (better if more) when you pay for your bill at Misty's Bar & Grill.  We are raising funds for a new helipad construction project for whirlybird bush or tour pilots who visit Misty's Place...Cash is better but debit or credit cards will do. ;D

Welcome Larry and Gerald,
man o' man gettin a pair at a time nowadays.  Misty's Place is gonna be jumpin tonight!  Of course you already have the word on installing the libraries first which is the key to everything RTMM.  There is so many places to fly to and experience the adventure of low n' slow exploration don't try and get it all at once or you'll never get a chance to fly.  Grab a location or two install it in the sim and then take the time to 'get into the scenery' and find these great little fields and lakes.  There not all in the 'Go to Airport' function of FSX you will have to use the flight plans/ maps that come with the scenery to visit the bush.  Oh and we don't mind if you have to 'use the bush' (or behind it) while visiting either!

Welcome Gerald and FlyingMonk ...

Yeah, Dan sits there in the background and doesn't say much, but when "it" hits the fan, he is the one bailing us out (me more than anyone trying to run the website!). So welcome to BOTH of you ... glad to have you aboard. If you see something "out of place" ... let us know. We are in no way a "professional" web site ... just a bunch of amateurs (but getting better and smarter all the time).

Best - Doug

Hello all!

I'm a newcomer here as well - well, as far as posting goes.  I discovered this place some time back, and have been so busy burning virtual 100LL that I never got around to introducing myself.

I've been flight simming off and on since the original flight simulator, and enjoy a wide variety of aircraft and flying types.  However, bush flying has definitely become my favorite since RTMM and ORBX.  You guys have created a wonderful little slice of the world here at RTMM, along with an entire culture that goes beyond just buildings, and all for FREE!  My hat's off to you.

I'm not a big poster, but I read the forums via RSS, and will occasionally come up with an original thought.  In any event, thanks for all THIS, and keep up the good work!

Good morning Robert,
bet you thought by hanging around the back you would be spared having to buy the beer. OOOHHH no ya don't.  But right now you do have a choice.  The regular hang out is Misty's Place but in celebration of the Halibut Cove release we can meet you at the Saltry so you can buy the gang some beer.
Seriously though welcome to the low n' slow world of RTMM.  Glad your enjoying the efforts of group and remember to wipe the oil off the cowling now and then come and see us again.

Hi everyone

I'm afraid I've been a bit lapse in completing the introduction page.. had a few problems getting all the right files in the right place, but boy, was it worth it.

What else can I say but, wow !

Having toiled over the list of libraries and objects and zips, I've just loaded Misty's Place and had a quick look around.  This is exactly how I hoped it would be from all the articles I'd read and all the videos I'd watched. Now I get to experience it for myself.

What an incredible experience! My hat off to everyone who has contributed to such an incredible site.

Looking forward to being able to immerse myself in the vast and beautiful landscape of the PNW and beyond...

No idea how many of us girls there are out in the flight sim community but i reckon you could count us on the fingers of a hand or two at most. Not sure why there are so few of us. In England flying for real is so expensive, I'm lucky if i can manage more than 2 or 3 ' real world ' flights in a year. I'm happy to split my time and lets face it, with simming  I can fly the equipment I want, where I want and I'm not restricted by our predictably poor UK weather. . . What more can a girl ask for! :)

Hello, after lurking a bit decided to join. Had a bit of a rocky start, I probably mistyped or as Mrs. C2 likes to say "fat fingered" a piece of information while signing up. Thankfully Doug came to the rescue and got it squared away, thank you for the prompt response. I had been looking at RTMM for a while and was able to set aside a bit for ORBX PNW & PFJ, finally got Misty's Place going and have been having fun as finally a decent place for my floatplanes.

Once again, a big thanks to Doug.

Take care,
C2

Thanks to all for the welcome aboard. Next round at Misty's is on me. Hope everyone likes Boilermakers! Maybe on the next flight in, some of Mrs. C2's family recipe err, I mean some horse trading.  ;)  Guaranteed to put hair on your chest no matter who you are. I like RTMM because it reminds me of when I was in High School, (years ago) my grandfather and I would fly up into Canada and go fishing when we lived in the Tacoma, Wa. area.

And because eventually someone will ask, yes, that is me on the left in my avatar.

Take care,

Hi all another newcomer here.

I'm also a bit of a newcomer to flying as although I've owned FSX for many a year I never really got into it. However after years of using Railsimulator I was waiting for the last yearly update and thought I would reinstall and give it a try again.

What I needed though was a purpose whilst learning to fly and after finding Misty (and Mindy) I discovered it, a place to explore and experience. So here I am, very green when it comes to flying maybe, or more to the point landing as getting up and staying there seems ok but getting down is where the difficulties arise.

I've bought myself an aircraft, the Carenado C185 Bush put down some roots and am thoroughly enjoying myself.

I should add I do like a beer, although I don't buy it very often as I brew my own, but you are all welcome round mine for a tasting session.

Bill;

Bill, glad to have you aboard RTMM.  As already said, any questions, problems or tidbits of wisdom are always welcome.  Home brew huh?  I used to have an Uncle who brewed his own and after a new batch was 'aging' downstairs a few would explode with the attendant glass and froth round about.  It certainly wasn't 3.2 stuff!

Post by: bpbill on November 04, 2013, 05:39:39 PM
Ahh well I don't get any exploding bottles here as I keg my beer, although my wife has banned me from brewing in the spare room due to an unfortunate moment when I forgot to make sure the tap on the barrel was properly tightened during a second stage fermentation.

Amazingly there was a build up of the most amazing aroma before we realised what was going on. Luckily there's no carpet in that room just a hard floor and a rug and it's only used a couple of times a year.

Hi all - Mike here. I'm a newbie to bush flying, but I've been tinkering on & off w/ flight sims for several years ago and decided to get back into it. I've got about 16 hrs real time in the C152 & C172, but never got any further than that for a variety of reasons. After casting about here & there for something to get more specialized in FSX (airliners? just GA sightseeing?) and when I came across bush flying I was hooked.

I'm very glad to have discovered this site - this all looks really stunning and incredibly immersive and many, many thanks to all who have obviously put a ton of work into all this. I'm no expert at FSX and still have a lot to learn, especially about bush flying & I'm looking forward to digging in. I've got the Realair Citabria/Decathlon/Scout package, the A2A Cub and the Flight Replicas Super Cub to work with, as well as ORBX PNW and SAK, but I still need to get Pacific Fjords and Tongass Fjords X. I've also been playing w/ Plan G a bit.

Good morning Mike,
Welcome Aboard RTMM.  Bush flying's best site by far.  When those questions pop up just jot em' down here and there is a very good probability of getting an answer for all the knowledgeable folks.  You mentioned Plan G and I see that v2 that everyone preferred has been broken by Google some how, so it it isn't working correctly that is the reason.  V3 will work OK I'm told.
Now for the important part .. As the newbie you get to buy the beer at Misty's Place for the gang.
Have a great time exploring all the destinations here a t Misty Moorings.

Welcome aboard Bill,
Mearly summer in your part of the world, made a port call in December on the cruise home from Viet Nam in 68 and enjoyed the green world and lovely Jacaranda (sic) in blossom then.  Any question you would like an answer to concerning RTMM should be available on the forums.  BUT there is a price for it ... Ya gotta buy the beer at Mysty's Place because the 'newbie' always needs to meet that requirement!
Glad to have you, take your time and there is so much more than the forums on the site as far as excellent information and knowledge is concerned.  Be sure and get the required libraries installed first so the scenery will display correctly.

Welcome to RTMM.
Jeff I was just admiring your avatar, haven't seen one of them since I was a wee lad. Remember when a midnite  regular programming to stop, and this test pattern would come on and I think her name was Ethel Smith would sing God Bess America. Always kind of wondered if that was where the saying came from, ''It ain't over until the fat lady sings Carpe Deim

Thanks.  I am rebuilding my operating system and computer environment since my "Master Boot Record" became corrupted.  I have to re-install everything.  I am knee deep in Orbx re-installs and their updates/patches currently.  My RTMM is not re-installed yet, and I don't have my TrackIR working either. 

So, the "Test Pattern" is to indicate that I am "down" at the moment.  (but not out). ;)

Hey folks,

Just joined up because all the awesome add-ons caught my eye!  I've been simming off and on since the days of FS2002 (high school for me) and most of my flying since the beginning has been in the areas covered by Tongass, Southern Alaska, and Pacific Fjords.  You should see how rough of shape my Juneau sectional is in, haha.  Early on, I was active in Bush Flying Unlimited and Big Bear Air, but for the last several years I've just been tooling around on my own at FSEconomy as time allowed.

In the real world, I was earning a degree in Accounting and then working my first job at a CPA firm after that, so my free time was pretty limited and didn't lend itself to a whole lot of FS.  Now I've got a new job and a little more time on my hands, so I'm starting to fire up the old Beaver again, and I guess you could say I missed the community.

Looking forward to exploring everything!

Mike

Take your time and enjoy the scenery.  There is a lot to see.  We are a very friendly group so feel free to ask whatever questions you would like.  Normally, a response back is pretty quick.

Mike,
welcome aboard RTMM, the "bush" place on earth.  Low, slow and in the woods is what we do.  Of course being the new guy your on the hook for the beer at Misty's Place.  As Rod says any info you need just ask, if we don't know we fake it!  Actually got a pretty knowledgeable bunch so we should be able to solve most problems.

Hi Mike,
Welcome aboard here on RTMM! I'm sure you like our awesome place for the virtual bushflyers.
Have fun here.....and we see you at Misty's place for the first round of beer... I like my beer cold ;)

Thanks for the warm welcome guys.  I've just finished installing the three scenery add-ons (just the third, fourth, and fifth payware items I've ever bought... the others were Aerosoft's Beaver and Twin Otter) and am about to go wild with all the free stuff here.  Can't wait to try it all out!

Mike, remember to get all of the required libraries of objects installed first in your sim before you start adding our individual sceneries and other enhancements.

http://return.mistymoorings.com/object_libraries/index.php

Be sure to make use of the scenery object tester. Then you can really begin your RTMM adventure properly.

Just a passing thought, though not member at the startup, can you imagine now after full filling nearly 3 years of  scenery of the daunting task to some  of folks who are just now joining  and loading the libraries and the sceneries that have been put forth by the scenery guru's. Anyway my hat's off to those just now joining and enjoy, oh and by the way Happy New Year to all, can't wait to see what comes down the pike in 2014

Matter of fact I just "suffered through" that experience due to a mother board failure that left me with no way to read my RAID array HD's.  So it was a complete start from scratch of EVERYTHING FSX not just RTMM but all ORBX etc.  As they say I was 'as busy as a one legged man in a butt kicking contest" for a couple of weeks!  :o

I am still recovering from a MBR failure.  I'm not stressing over it, or hurrying either.  Everything has/had to be reinstalled to rebuild my OS registry.  And the same with FSX.  Rebuilding my scenery library is a daunting chore.  I am maybe 65% recovered.

Hi

I just thought that it was about time I made myself known as I have been hanging around for a couple of months now! What can you say about RTMM except 'Wow' (and in my case can I even hope to run most of this on my ancient system).

Now I know that it is traditional to offer (virtual) beers to everyone but I am going to offer pasties and cake instead, you need some ballast for all that beer!

Anyway, wishing everybody on here a happy New Year and many more hours of bush flying

Pastry and cake sounds better than beer to me.....thanks!

Good morning/afternoon/evening all!

I'm Ashley, will be 20 in a month and am from the warm and humid Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

I've been lurking this site occasionally over the past few years but have finally decided to rejoin with a renewed interest in flying around western Canada and southern Alaska. I've been to western Canada a few times but haven't been to the areas RTMM scenery touches.

I have downloaded some RTMM in previous years but a month ago FSX completely crashed for almost no reason for the 5th time on me this year so I got rid of it and made a fresh new start with P3D v2 which I am immensely enjoying and barely having a problem with (except my old GTX 460 1GB graphics card). RTMM is a bit overwhelming at first and only recently with more interest have I figured most things out here, but the Legacy Collection and Misty's Place are very helpful. :) I am missing a few objects though as I'm yet to get Tongass Fjords X.

I am generally a VFR type flyer (and love VFR-ing with the King Air), occasionally fly the passenger jets, but only recently have gotten into flying with floats. A problem I get myself caught up in when going for a flight is deciding where to fly and what route. The dispatches on here though are great and will certainly have a go at them.

I look forward to what more is to come for RTMM!
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: jeff3163 on January 04, 2014, 05:54:09 PM
Hello Asheroo,
     Welcome to RTMM, and the forum.  Glad you poked your head in to say "hi".  Time is wearing on FSX and P3Dv2 is a fresh change (heart transplant) for our flightsim.  You will like flying the little float planes down "in" the bush.  Use a Scout amphibian and stay low and fly along the shorelines at 500' to 1,000' feet.  Come in with flaps extended and flare your floats up at the last minute.  I think of a duck landing.  Is that wierd?  I love the amphibians, and the beaver is my favorite one.   ;)
     Anyway, welcome to the flock.   ;D

Hi Ashley,

Welcome back!   Glad to see that you are going to give RTMM your attention.....the site has only gotten better since you were last here.  Though you are from down under, I have no problem picturing where you live since I have been to Brisbane twice.  The City Cat is really a great means of water transportation down there.   I live near Tampa so can appreciate your good weather too!

We are very friendly here so if you have any questions don't be afraid to ask.   Have fun!

Hej Asheroo, nice to see you making a come-back.

Hope to see in the forums and try to make it over to the screen shot forum and post a few, always a pleasure seeing the adventurers of pilots around here.

word of warning... flying Hooch to the thirsty dwellers in the RTTM area is against the law.  So, best to mark the jugs as Beaver oil not to cause suspicion.  ??? 
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: spud on January 05, 2014, 08:47:52 AM
Welcome back to RTMM Ashley,
Low, slow, below the ridge lines is the technique to really enjoy the scenery of the RTMM area provided by ORBX.  When the 3 phase installers for their scenery are made available to port regions/airports into P3D v2.0 there should be no problem using RTMM destinations in that sim.  At the moment however it would be prudent to utilize FSX with ORBX and RTMM for the full features of our scenery.
 8)
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: Asheroo on January 05, 2014, 07:33:55 PM
Thanks for the warm welcome all! :)

Low and slow is indeed a lot of fun and makes for great adventurous flights below the low clouds. It's all in the art of Alaskan/Misty Fjords flying. I do have my excitement with flying the jets up high and twin turboprops fast and low but Alaskan flying brings in a new world of excitement.

So far I've managed to install my Orbx products and RTMM scenery well into P3Dv2 with a few little tricks and all is working very well. May post up some screens when I next remember to hit the V key.

As for the beer, I rarely drink alcohol but I'm very happy with iced chocolates (caffeine does me no good). Oh the looks I got from cafe staff during my times in Canada when I ordered iced chocolates there while outside it was -10C to -20C. :) I do love the cold. I'm no fan of the weather at my place.

One query, would be interesting to see the responses: Does anyone have any tips as to how to make up one's mind of where to fly from and where to (apart from the dispatches and trip tics)?

Post by: Agood on January 19, 2014, 05:07:50 AM
Hi forum, I'm new as well, just installed CIRP about a week ago, and yesterday a bunch of other addons. And it's really a relevation, how much more fun one can have with the already brilliant ORBX regions up there!
I also just started flying helicopters again, which goes double well with RTMM scenery - very very nice experiences so far.

The one little gripe I have is with the missing DX10 compatibility of many addons, but I'm happy to wait for coverage to improve.

This I found while exploring southwards from Misty's Place yesterday, on my first flight from there:

Post by: spud on January 19, 2014, 10:02:58 AM
Welcome to RTMM Agood,
Nice screen shot by the way.  As far as DX10 files some locations have been modified to display correctly in DX10 by substituing a non-compatible object with another that works with DX10.  This was being done prior to the "DX10 fixer" program that has become available for purchase.  If you check out some posts in the forums there are many that talk about this program.
I can't give you exact info as I do not use DX10 etc. adhering to the KISS principal.  I'm not sure if more of the location will be given the DX10 treatment or not now that the 'fixer' program seems to do that for those that are DX10 users.
All that being said not of course is the really important info.  The guys and gals will meet you at Misty's Place for the "New Guy" to buy the beer!!   ;D

Post by: Agood on January 19, 2014, 12:35:41 PM
Thanks guys!

Btw I run Steve's DX10 Fixer - that program was the turning point that finally made it feasible, painless, and significantly better overall than running DX9 mode. But it doesn't fix everything, notably some older, FS9 portover objects for example. So I will appreciate any updates to affected RTMM scenery...

 
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: jeff3163 on January 19, 2014, 01:00:45 PM
I think work will begin soon to convert all fs9 objects to FSX for compatibility with P3Dv2 (and FSX).  That has been discussed recently already.

An effort needs to be made in that direction, for both FSX/dx10 and P3Dv2's benefit.   ;)
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: stiletto2 on January 19, 2014, 01:37:39 PM
Hi Agwood,

Welcome to RTMM.   I too am hoping someone from the ORBX community converts all of the FS9 textures for P3Dv2 compatibility.   It will be a big job especially to convert the animated objects.  The problem right now is need a tech who is using P3Dv2 and has time to work on the conversion.

Luckily, there are quite a few sceneries in the RTMM library that are at least DX10 ready.

I am in the general vicinity.  I am just south of Vancouver, BC . . . on the Washington State side of the line, in Lynden.  No, I don't fly in real life.  But when I was a kid, my friend's dad took me up in his single engine cessna something or other.  I didn't know anything about planes back then.  But that got me hooked on flying a plane.  I just never could do it in real life.  Then I found FSX and the rest is (virtual) history.

Nice! Is the "outside" as breathtaking as I think it is, based on FSX? I mean, the first time flying around in the PNW area I was just blown away, especially once I started using ASN for realistic weather. I imagine in real life it must be at least 10 times as vast and impressive.

My current mid-life-spoiled-German idea is to try and find some small charter company up there who'd take me on without pay as a kind of intern for a couple of weeks, right-seat copilot kind of thing, to see whether I like that lifestyle as much as I think I would. I'm a PPL-A holder and as such only fly as a hobby, whenever money, wheather and time permit (which wasn't often in the last couple of months...). So I still have the illustion that flying for money is the greatest thing in the world ;) At least as long as it's small-scale, GA kind of flying that is. I'm not a jet person at all...

A warm welcome from a helo bush pilot here in RTMM  :) Unless you fly one and do not enjoy the adrenaline rush of sky diving from a hanging platform, there's no better place to do it than from the Kildala Gorge Helipad (about 2,000 ft AGL), I can airlift you there.. Just bring me an ice-cold 6-pack from Misty's Place and we're even.. The jump is so challenging that Lex Luthor would cringe at the sight of it but gladly no kryptonine when you touchdown ;D

Hi all,

I've been with FS on and off for many years. Misty Fjords helped pull me away from mil jets and tubeliners when I was fairly new in the world of multiplayer.

I am hanging with the folks at msFlights.net these days. Lots of like minded prop heads such as myself. I can only speak for myself when I say I think I will really enjoy the offerings here. Look forward to enjoying the RTMM!

Karl,
welcome aboard Return to Misty Moorings.  Low n' Slow is the norm around these parts.  It is the 'Journey' after all that sets bush flying apart from the heavy iron.  Do not overlook the float trips for a truly 'down in the scenery' experience.  You just can't get lower and slower than a nice watercraft on the river.
Of course the gang will meet you at Misty's Place for the obligatory 'buying of the beer' that all newbies must provide.

Welcome aboard Misty's Buck.  Lots of helo pads hiding around the scenery so you should find lots to do.  Of course we will all see you at Misty's Place for the newbie to buy the beer!  :D

Hi everyone,

Been using Misty's scenery for a couple of years now and I finally decided to register for the forums.  Everything works so really didn't have a need.  I would like to express my appreciation for all the work everyone does here.  It has brought me hours of enjoyment.  Thank you!

I'm on the central coast of California and I'm in my 70s.  Hope I have a few years left.  Beer's on me.

Hello Jim, and welcome to the forum.  Glad you stopped in.  I was getting thirsty.  It's good to hear that everything is going smoothly in your RTMM world.  Hang out and listen to the local gossip from time to time.  We are always willing to share our Misty experiences over a virtual beer.   ;)

Hi Ziggy,
     Welcome to Return to Misty Moorings.  This is a great time to be here.  We have new library objects, and an ever-growing scenery library of destinations.  Doug is always coming up with new ways to get from here to there.  Brad is developing some locations in P3D, and we are all having growing pains with the new P3D upgrade.  I am back into the FSX cockpit, until I get my P3D issues resolved. 

     Be sure to check out the forums, to get answers to almost any questions you could think of.  Read the NOTAMS thread to get up to speed on scenery development.  Also, we are happy to help when you need it. 

     So, we'll see you at Misty's Place for a round.  Welcome to Misty Moorings.   ;)

Welcome aboard RTMM Ziggy,
I think you will enjoy the vast amount of offerings that enhance the ORBX and FSAddon regions where we fly and have a great time discovering new and different destinations.  As Jeff metioned we'll see you at Misty's Place for a welcoming round of beer on you, being the newbie on the block!  ;D

Hello Ziggy,

Welcome to Return to Misty Moorings. We always enjoy seeing new people come in and we hope you enjoy what you've discovered so far.

Be sure and take a good look at the enhancements page as well as the scenery page. We've spent a lot of time putting together a very good collection of AI shipping and other enhancements to make your journey complete.

My advice is always the same, take your time and go discover one or two destinations at a time and then enjoy the ride. There is no hurry here and we can answer and help you with any issues you may come across.

Thanks for your kind words and we'll see you at Misty's place!

Brad

Gentlemen,
I am very happy to join the fun. Your type of flight is my cup of tea.
I am the CEO + bush and Special Ops manager of a friendly Virtual Airline, St Paul Airlines (http://www.stpaulairlines.com/). By the way, I am not trying to recruit new members for SPA. On the contrary, I will encourage our pilots to join the fun and the Misrty Mooring group which will add new possibilities to our range of  bush and special ops flights.
A word about myself, I am a French Speaking Swiss citizen, 72 years old, and a former East Africa bush pilot at the end of the 60's (Cessna cardinal and similar toys).
I really look forward to flying in your area.
Cheers,
Yoland  8)

Two newbies to RTMM at once!  Misty's Place is going to be jumping tonight.  Twice the free beer as usual. 

Seriously, welcome aboard gentlemen.  Take some time and browse through the site and you will see the mountain of information available for flying in the bush locations offered here.  Always start with getting the required libraries.  They are the key to everything Misty's.  Best of all you have the option of using the scenery in FSX, FSX/DX10, or P3D.

Great bunch of pilots here and any problems you may have just ask or search the forums for previous answers to earlier problems.

Hello all,

I'm John Rogers - and like Yoland, I hail from Saint Paul Airlines.  Unlike Yoland I have no real pilot experience.  I'm currently the webmaster for SPA.  I look forward to trying out some of the resources here at RTMM.  Back at SPA we're working on getting our multiplayer flights 'off the ground'.  We try to schedule one every two weeks.  There's so much going on here at Misty, I'm still looking around, but now feel ready to take flight!

Let's Fly!

RTMM IS a very extensive and easy to get side tracked place but as already been mentioned just ask and someone will remember where that doo-dad can be located.
Looked at St. Paul's site the other day and it does look good indeed and I'll have to spend some time having a look around.
Hope you enjoy the low n' slow world of RTMM.

Lee...now you too have experienced the reason for the "return" in "RETURN to Misty Moorings". That is also why the "coming home" picture at the top of Misty's Place. We all fly "out of the scenery"...I virtually vacation in Hawaii and the Caribbean. When I've had my fill, I grab some big iron and set the GPS to "direct Ketchikan." Then I return to home. Not everyone will return, but those who do all share an interesting personal experience.  It is comfortable to always have your own parking spot at Misty's Place.

Welcome home.

Welcome aboard Gil. I think "immersed" is the right word! We are actually thinking about creating some startup manuals for new folks. RTMM can be a little imposing when you first encounter it, so we are going to go to work on that aspect of it. But as you can tell from then"welcome" responses, you have plenty of people ready to give you a hand with any complexity or problem you may encounter.  I always worry about seeing so many new members signing up at the forum or seeing 38 guests on line (like yesterday) and I wonder if they need a hand with anything. I wish more would post as you did so we could be ready to help them. Let us know what you need or how we can make things easier.

Doug
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: Hitchhiker on October 12, 2014, 08:33:16 AM
Thanks a lot guys. Doug, your analysis seems very sensible to me, and in my case, rather accurate. When I stumbled on the page the first time, it did feel somewhat overwhelming, particularly when time is at a premium, and you only have a few minutes at your disposal at the end of the day to figure out what's what.

Also, with some of the sceneries (other than the really obvious ones like Halibut Cove), it wasn't clear which ones were fictitious, or which real. So for example, Misty's is obviously fictitious, but I'm assuming that some of the cabins do actually exist in real life(?). It would be nice to identify them as such, especially for beginners. A start-up manual, perhaps with a brief executive summary at the beginning would be helpful. I'd be willing to offer editorial assistance should this come to fruition.

Another suggestion I would have, although I can see potential arguments against it, is to have an up-to-date installer or ZIP file that contains all of RTMM in one place. I'm currently downloading all the sceneries and building up the scenery folder little by little. I am aware of the Legacy Pack, but it would have been nice to not have to manually extract each scenery. The argument I can see against this is that somebody would have to maintain a current version of this pack, each time an individual scenery is updated.

Having said that other packs like the Libraries and AI Shipping are really well put together and straight-forward to install. I also learned something new with the presence of FS9 AI obliterating FSX/P3D traffic!

I've always loved flying around the Tongass National Forest. The topography is breath-taking! But now it feels more purposeful and fun, particularly flying into places with difficult approaches!

So many thanks again!
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: Doug on October 12, 2014, 10:13:57 AM
Good Morning ... Thank you for the input, several points I've added to the outline for the (maybe) beginners manual. Much appreciated. Us "old dogs" at RTMM tend to forget what this thing looks like when a beginner approaches it ... it is often overwhelming.

As for reality. As a rule of thumb, Most of the locations we've added on the RTMM side are fictional. Our purpose was to draw people back into the beautiful scenery where they would normally not fly ... sort of showing off the amazing places, some absolutely beautiful. So we would fly and find such a place, then put something there to give people a reason to go there.

CIRP, the ice fields, is a good example. You need a pretty good reason to fly high altitude to nothing but MILES of ice and snow.  But if you have CIRP installed, the ice fields come alive. Flying between them gives you some amazing scenery ... also they can be tricky to find and the weather is ALWAYS a problem! Many don't realize, there are GROUND routes (with a hovercraft) that take you between the ice stations, with waypoint markers placed out on the ice ... this is a whole different aspect of CIRP.

However, on the USFS Cabins side, everything is REAL!  Many cabins were put in by Holger and Billl into the software packages ... these are at actual locations of the USFS cabins. But they didn't put all of them in, so we "filled in" the gap with the "Missing Cabins". Once you add those (on the Cabins page), then you will have every USFS Cabin and Shelter in their Alaska regions. All totally real.  When we add something fictitious in those areas, we purposely keep it OFF the Cabins page.  On that page you'll also see the Lighthouse and Oil Rigs ... they also are real.  So as a rule of thumb, for realism, go to the Cabins page, for everything else you'll find it at RTMM.

We should probably mention when a scenery is REAL on the RTMM side. I'll look into that.  Rod is working on some real ones at the moment. Yes Bay is Real, Halibut Cove, etc.

The question arises often about an "installer" for everything. That is one thing we "wish" we could do, but when you look at it from a practical point of view (the point of view from our direction, running the server and keeping it up to date), it just isn't going to happen. It would be a terrific convenience for people starting out with RTMM, but it won't work for us way of doing things.  The Legacy package is a close to this as we have come. And it was sort of a test in this direction. Updating Legacy is a "PAIN!" I don't even want to think about that "pain" multiplied by 100.  The problem is, at RTMM, we are always making updates and making things better. (We are not professionals, just amateurs, and we will make some mistakes, or later learn how to do something better). So we "update" often. (You can see the all the updates when you come down through the scenery page), every time we update, it is in the NOTAMS. Each update would mean a new installer or a patch (which is a nightmare).  And the installers would be HUGE ... and that is BANDwidth.  We are a FreeWare site, so we don't have the revenue for a "professional" server that can handle such things.

We also have found there are "scenery junkies" out there. Any free scenery, they grab it... they collect it. That is OK, but most rarely "fly" the scenery....they just look at it and say, "cool" and look for the next one. We would have thousands of downloads for such people ... and again, think Bandwidth, if they were downloading the latest "installer" package. That is not what we are about at RTMM. So we make the "collection" a little more difficult ... you have to WANT it and you have to make an EFFORT to get it.  Those are the folks that will stay with the site and become involved in it. It is a "downside" for some critics. But for us, it protects our bandwidth, and gives us the ability to continually update and make the locations better for the "regulars." 

Our first little "manual" will be about Navigation and HERE2THERE. This will give folks a methodology for selecting which scenery to download and fly next ... sort of helps with the thinking and selection process. For instance, some folks only have Tongass X. I still get emails from those folks telling me that Misty's Place is in the water.  There is no need for them to download Misty's Place ... it is PFJ. If you look at the Starting Points table on Here2There, on the right hand column, the software package necessary is listed. Most people don't realize that is even there to help them. Those are the "little things" we hope to point out in any little manuals we create for folks that will help them with location selection/download. If everyone could afford ALL of the packages that would be great, but we are not assuming that, so we've gone to this extra level of detail to help those folks.

Keep the ideas coming to us ... some we can do, some we cannot. But it is ALWAYS worth the discussion. At RTMM, we are trying to keep up to date with all the latest technology. Not easy with DX10 and P3D suddenly landing on us ... but we are compat with everything ... so we've technically kept up with the changes and our last year's efforts were in that area. Now, hopefully, we can start having more fun with more interesting locations.

Thank you for the input ...
Doug

Just to 'embellish' what Doug says about sever bandwidth etc.  The zipped download archives I have on an external HD which is at least 98% of what RTMM offers is nearly 700 MB in size and that does not include the space an installer package for everything would require just to put in on a hard drive.

Post by: Hitchhiker on October 12, 2014, 11:21:13 AM
I totally understand the points you raise Doug  :) Thanks for the additional insight! Indeed to clarify the confusion re: reality/fiction was the inclusion of Halibut Cove in the RTMM section. I was aware of the existence of the USFS Cabins and was pretty certain those were not fictional!

I do have another query. Not sure if this is in existence already or if there is an easy way to implement it. How do RTMM users keep up with updates? I've just set up to be notified to any new posts in the Addon Scenery part of the forum. Is that how you guys do it?
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: Doug on October 12, 2014, 11:36:53 AM
The best way is to keep up with the NOTAMS. Every time we update something, I make a NOTAM of it. There are two places for the NOTAMS, one is on the web page (top header third from left), the second place is in the new NEWS and NOTAMS section of the FORUM ... the information will be the same at both (I copy/paste). I was hoping to use only the forum, but again, when you look at the statistics, it is amazing how many people go to the NOTAMs page on the site ... so I'm "stuck" with two entries.  The News and Notams on the forum is relatively new, so won't have all of the updates over the years. The Web Page Notams has all of them since the beginning.  As a beginner comes to the site, he doesn't have to worry about all those old updates, whatever he is downloading is the latest. But to keep up, I'd recommend the forum. (But again, many people visit but don't sign up, I suppose they are looking at the NOTAMs page on the web.

although I see you have been a member since 2011 its your first post on the forums.  Always nice to hear from people who have been around but silent.  If you have been reading the site you know already that help is but a question away if you have any problems or requests.
However there is a matter of the obligatory beer fest at Misty's Place you have been apparently trying to avoid.  ;)  So we'll all meet you Sat. night at the bar so you can generously provide a repast as the "newbie"  ;D :P

Just a "By the Way" comment to all new folks.  Many are contacting me with emails because they are a little shy to get in the forum...one told me, she didn't want to be flamed for asking a simple question. Let me be real clear on that point. We will never flame anyone here...never. And if it happens, I'll step in immediately and ban the person flaming. Our forum's focus is solving problems and working together. RTMM is NOT a simple site...it is complex and with FSX, DX10 and P3D with all the updates and objects changing, what we are doing can be very intimidating to new folks. (Even some of us older hands can get stumped!).

There are no stupid questions, there are only problems to be solved. The one thing that will stand out in your mind as you use THE RTMM forum is the speed and quality of expertise that comes to you when you post a problem.  I'm prejudiced, but I'm sure we've got one of the most qualified and friendly teams of any flight sim site. These folks will stick with you until the problem is solved. And when it is solved, we've ALL learned something. And a lot of expertise is also offered by RTMM non-team members. There is plenty of help here.

For the new folks...don't try to do this alone if you are having problems. Ask us. The RTMM team is actually looking forward to helping you solve the next problem. Don't worry about your language skills or your technical skills...ASK US, even in your own language...we've got Google Translate just like you do. What a shame it would be if one person gives up because of a problem we could have helped them solve.

So ask us...join the forum so you can participate.  We want to hear from you...and it is SAFE here, that's a personal promise from me and the team will back me up in it.

Hi Anthin,

Welcome to RTMM!  There is so much to see and do here.  Take your time and enjoy it.  As Doug said, there are no dumb questions.  Please feel free to ask and the staff will try to respond as best we can.   I hope all other new members, who are in the background reading but not posting, take a minute and at least say "hello".  After one post, you will immediately start feeling a little more comfortable with the site.  We are all flight simulation enthusiasts who have at least one hobby in common.  Let's all have fun with this fantastic hobby.

Joseph,
glad to have you aboard RTMM.  Lots of information and places to 'fly to' available to one and all.  Once you have the required Libraries installed your ready to begin the 'low n' slow' world of bush flying.  Don't forget the Tongass X, and PFJ software, although payware it will be some of the best money spent on flight simming.
Help or information is only a question away from some great folks here at RTMM.
Now get yourself over to Misty's Place and we will all have a beer on you.  ;D

Hi Gang,

Joined a couple years ago but illness kept me away. I have it all setup now and can't wait to get going. A long time member has suggested that I do a lot of reading in here first. So it is good to be back. Already received some help with my Beaver. Wonder if there is another good payware or freeware amphibian plane that is popular in here with a 2D panel.....like a Cessna on floats etc....cheers   al

Great to have you back. 

Carenado has a C172 and a C206 that will suit your amphibian and float needs and even has a 2D panel. Both are FSX but will work in P3D.

Greetings All:
 Read some good things about Misty Moorings so this morning I bought the Tongas Fjords X and hope to enjoy the scenery with you.
Many years ago I spent six months in Alaska flying out of Elmendorf AFB. My co-pilot was from Seward so I was treated to some really good times (even
if out tour did start October 1st). Also spent some weeks in Vancouver and Victoria.
Some of the most beautiful country I've ever seen.

cubpilot54,
welcome to this place!  Low n' Slow is the name of the game at RTMM so kindred spirits are abundant.  Flying down "IN" the scenery brings so much more to flight simming and this is the place to maximize that experience.
If you have any questions as Rod says just ask.  Misty's Place is the watering hole where we will meet you so as the 'newbie' you can buy the beer!   ;D

Hello,

I'm completely new and discovered this project after installing PNW from ORBX and lookins for some free sceneries for VFR flights in this area!

I come from Switzerland and speak french, sorry for my poor english!

Post by: jeff3163 on December 08, 2014, 07:21:02 AM
Hello and welcome to RTMM, flo1981.  You're in the right place to get free scenery locations.  Take some time to just read the forums.  There are years of information collected within these threads.  If you need help,just ask.   ;)  We have a few french pilots here too, so language is no problem, usually.
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: spud on December 08, 2014, 10:03:59 AM
Welcome aboard flo1981,
A great deal of content available here at RTMM but the board is quite extensive and as Jeff says reading is going to aid in understanding just how much free scenery is offered.
You have PNW from ORBX and there are a "few" location withing that ORBX region but as you will see reading the site most of RTMM is located further north and requires ORBX PFJ and SAK plus FSAddon's Tongass X.  These of course are payware so it might take you some time to save enough to buy them.  ORBX right now is having their annual Christmas sale at 33% off so PFJ and SAK would be less costly this month.  As a member of RTMM FSAddon gives a discount for Tongass X but I can't recall exactly how much.
Now for the important part:  Meet the crowd at Misty's Bar so as the 'newbie' you can buy the beer!!!  ;D

I just got all the required stuff installed and a couple of the sceneries to test with.  Looks good so far.

As background, I'm a retired mechanical engineer with about 20 years in FS.  I started out in VERT and after several va's am now an escapee from a military va with about 2500 hours (about 500 hours in helos),  This looks like a great place to just relax and explore.  I'll see about a civilian va later or may run a USCG helo station, we'll see.

Right now I just did Misty's Place and the legacy stuff for testing.  Over the next few days, I'll settle on some others and keep testing.

This is a fantastic  piece of work and so far, it looks great!

Hi, I'm René from France, having relatives on Vancouver island. I just discovered Misty Moorings, you've really done a great job, bush flying for over 10 years but very disappointed when I started with FSX since there weren't that much sceneries for Alaska. ORBX changed things with SAK, and PFJ I bought recently, and of course Holger's Tongass Fjords. I downloaded almost all Misty's sceneries, I couldn't dream better, there's so much to discover I haven't been back on a liner the last two weeks.
I'll have to get rid of the old addons which are no longer compatible but I see there's enough to do without them.
Wonder if I should also get ORBX PNW since I already have Holger's Vancouver v.2.0, Victoria and Tampa's KSEA.

Thanks again for all the work you've done, and a happy new year to the whole team.

Post by: spud on January 07, 2015, 10:57:03 PM
Renee,
welcome aboard RTMM.  Bush Flying is certainly our game and purpose.  Glad your enjoying low n' slow.
Of course we will expect you at Misty's Bar to buy the beer as the Newbie!!!!
PNW by ORBX, if you can afford to buy more scenery this close after Christmas, is a great buy as are all the ORBX Regions.  They contain much improved scenery over default FSX and provide much more realistic scenery.  In fact I would recommend the Northern California region as well.  Combined with PFJ, Holger's Tongass X and SAK you have the entire Pacific coast with the exception of Southern California which ORBX will release at a later date.  With this scenery it is possible to fly from San Fancisco to Anchorage without ever leaving top quality scenery.
Too bad you missed the ORBX Dec. sale as you could have saved a bit of cash.
Again, welcome and see you at Misty's

That is the "hardest" part ... getting the libraries working, etc. And we are here to help anyone through that process.  Once you are over that initial "initiation" to RTMM ... the membership is easy and a lot of fun.  I go off to other places in the world to fly ... then I come home ... this is one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Hello all!

Not new to visiting your website, but new as far as a login.  FSRobert (one of your members) has me visiting this site again.  I've been around flight sims since my Apple IIe Sublogic days.  Since my friends and I like to fly a lot of Alaska and Bush scenery areas in P3DV2, I thought I would try to visit this site more often.

My friends and I fly P3DV2 in multi-player a few times each week.  it's a very stable and great multi-player platform and is a blast as fars as bush flying into remote areas.  We all have the Orbx areas from Northern California to Alaska as well as Tongass X, so we're covered.

Spent 7 years in Alaska and have flown into some remote spots.  Beautiful and challenging area.

Oh ya, what kind of aircraft did you fly?

Not a real world pilot, but I could be...lol.  Over 5,000 hours in RC-135 aircraft.  Was 30 semester hours shy of a BS degree to fly and get a commercial pilots license.  Father was a pilot in USAF.  Mother was a civilian instructor who taught instrument flying and basic flight training in T-6 Texan aircraft for the USAF. Hmmm..maybe she met my dad that way...lol.  I'm not afraid to fly most anything.  The wings in avatar picture are for being a crew member.  I was on aeronautical orders for about 17 years.

Besides kayak fishing, I spend a lot of evening time dabbling in Prepar3D V2 and flying multi-player with some buddies across the country. I can be found on Skype under the same picture as my avatar.  Give me a heads up if you try to connect so I know who you are...lol.  Thanks for the warm welcome!

Welcome aboard Steve,
sounds like once you grab the required libraries your all set to begin the "adventure of RTMM".  Only thing you did not mention was Acceleration which has scenery objects that are used in some of the locations we offer.
We'll see you at Misty's Bar soon I expect.
If you have questions or need information about anything here at RTMM don't hesitate to jump on the forums and give a shout.  We usually have the answer for most problems that arise.

Spud,

Thanks for the warm welcome.  I will assume the Acceleration reference is for FSX.  I run P3D V2.4 only.  I'm working on a fictitious scenery called Wilderness Retreat (PWR1) in the Juneau area.  I might consider uploading it once it's finished.  I haven't checked out the library objects here in years.  I've been making all my custom objects myself...lol.  My best tour in the USAF was by far Alaska.  Stationed there for 7 years and really enjoyed the beautiful scenery.  Can't wait for Orbx to finish the rest of the state!

Hi Steve,
just a quick caution on uploading scenery at RTMM it must be submitted to the team prior to being uploaded so QC checks etc. can be done.
 8)

UPDATE:
it seems that P3D already contains Acceleration and therefore it is a non-requirement for P3D users.  As I do not run anything but straight FSX my comments are geared ONLY to that sim.

Welcome Steve!

I am sure you find a lot to do and experience here. Just to expand on what Spud wrote, if you do have something you are working on (which is great!) and you are thinking about submitting it to RTMM for review and possible upload, you need to contact Brad to have him verify the availability of building in the area where you scenery is and he would also be the one to direct how the scenery would be vetted before it could be uploaded.  Take a look at the "Rules and Regs" for Authors Contributing to Return to Misty Moorings by clicking here:   http://return.mistymoorings.com/about/#r (http://return.mistymoorings.com/about/#r):

Rod,

No worries.  I read all the rules and understand the process.  No guarantees on uploading that scenery.  It's been suggested I do so by other folks that have had sneak peaks...lol!  Almost 100% of my scenery development has been for personal use.  Looking forward to seeing what's in the RTMM library objects that I can use.  Have a great weekend! :D

Steve,

Glad to hear your interested in maybe adding some creations of yours here at RTMM. We'd love to add your stuff. If you do decide to share something with us here it's gotta be approved and most likely will be as long as it's within our scenery profile. Which is easy to see. Bush flying only. No big, medium or even small airports. Just dirt, grass, gravel airstrips and water operations geared towards bush flying only.

You may use our updated objects for designing any scenery here at RTMM but we'd probably not be willing to let any scenery designed with our objects be shared elsewhere like AVSIM, etc.

Finally let me know exactly where your scenery is located so we can make sure it's not too close to any of our other locations.

I look forward to seeing what you have to offer and hope your happy and willing to accept our policy decisions. Always happy to have a fresh new approach here so please feel free to join the party.

Brad

Hello All,

I'm a new guy from France. Big fan of the original Misty Moorings in FS9 and now on P3D. I'm a real life pilot (looking for a job...) and I love bush flying. I'm really impressed by the work on the sceneries, this is really great and very immersive.
Because of you I feel that I'll convert my EASA licence into FAA to hunt for a Beaver pilot job !!  :D

Cheers,

Hello!  I just recently grabbed all the libraries and the legacy pack and have had a couple of nice flights.  I plan on spending more time around here so I figured I'd say hi.   In real life my name is Rob;  I live in the suburbs of Chicago with my wife and almost five year old girl.   My day job sees me working as a systems engineer and manager of a team of developers at a trading firm in the Chicago loop.  I've always had a love for aviation but have never had the simultaneous freedom of the time and money to pursue a pilot's license, so instead I spend time in flight sims between family and professional demands.

Anyway.... hello!  I'll be sure to buy you all a round at Misty's as soon as I can drop by.

Rob,
welcome to RTMM the premier low n' slow site.  The legacy pack will keep you busy for a long time to come and adding locations as time permits just increases your experience with the scenery.  If you have any questions just ask right here in the forums and I'm sure someone has the answer.
My last duty staion was NAS Glennview and I lived in Hoffman Estates to the west of Chi town so a bit familiar with the area.

Hi all,

many, many thanks for all your spectacular enhancements to my flight sim experience. I can't even guess how much effort, heart, sweat an tears went into creating and supporting all this incredible stuff!

I rediscovered flight simming end of last year after a really long pause. My first fs experience was some decades ago on an Apple 2e. Later then a couple of flights with various fs versions. I never was quite happy zhen, because performance issues and missing rudders. When Elite:Dangerous came out end of last year I was back into flying (kind of) on my PC. I got an Track-IR for the dogfights in E:D and grabbed my dusty FSX DVD to try headtracking in FSX.

I was immediately hooked again, swapped my gaming laptop for a i7 4790 CPU and GTX970 graphics card, got the Saitek Cessna yoke and rudders, tried X-Plane 10 (gorgeous night flying) then P3D.

Rather early it was clear that I want to start slow and low and eventually bush flying. I got the ORBX NA sceneries (except NCA), managed to manually install Tongass Fjords into P3D2.4, got the A2A C172R and C182, RealAirs Scout and Legacy, Aerosofts Twin Otter Extended, freeware Pilatus PC-6, Lionhearts Quest Kodiak plus the original FSX C208B, DHC Beaver and Maule copied over to P3D.

Yesterday I installed your fine Legacy package for starters and here I am redy to meet you at Misty's Place ;-)

Hi Currybeef,
A big warm welcome here on RTMM!
If you are looking for bush flying that is the right place for you. You did a good start with the legacy collection. When you have these locarion discovered you will soon realize there's so much more to explore in RTMM world.

I recommend installing the RTMM AI shipping collection. This set populates the waterways in RTMM with dozen's of ship traffic.

But most important is you are having fun here.....and for us is important it's your task as newbie paying the first round beer for us at misty's bar! ;D ;)

Greetings and best wishes from southern part of germany...ehm...Bavaria :D

Low n' Slow is the plan of the day every day for all the 'bushies' around here.  With the legacy collection and libraries your set to enter the world according to RTMM.  I've been hanging around for a long time and still am amazed how much content and information is available on the site.  Be sure and investigate all you can (shouldn't take more than a few months) and as already mentioned ask any questions you might have.  Now lets get down to the important things.  The bar at Misty's Place is where we'll meet ya and you can buy the beer!!

     This is the best place to be for low and slow flying, P3D, and the virtual bush pilot's life.  I'm glad to hear that you dug up some controls.

     I am a Cobra MkIII pilot myself (Cmdr. Aspen Dragon) in E:D.  It is the most fun you can have with a planetarium.  I love it.  See you in the void, Commander.  ;)

Thanks all for the warm welcome :-)

Currently I enjoy spotting the places of the legacy collection one by one. If you stayed at Misty's yesterday evening, you might have recognized the blue tundra Scout flying one abbortive approach after the next. That was me sharpening my pilot skills. I swear I was prepared and willing to buy all of you a round...

@corbu1
I followed your advice and installed the AI shipping collection. Great models and increase of immersion!

@FSRobert
If I remember correctly I stumbled over Misty's Place when googling how to install Tongass Fjords in P3D2. Or was it a search for 'P3D + best bush planes'...?

@jeff3163
I stopped playing Elite:Dangerous in favour of P3D.  Full time job, two little kids, lovely wife, a minimal weekly amount of sports, and my ambition to improve my very basic guitar playing leave no room for a second computer game.

I feel like a new person here today too! So I'll introduce myself to the new folks. I just got P3D V2.5 working! Whew ... a scratch install on everything (new solid state disk and vid card). Just want to empathize with the new folks coming on board here. Even those of us who have been with RTMM from the beginning "struggle" a little. I had to ask for some help from the team (and of course got it!).  But PLEASE ... for the new people, jump on the RTMM forum, say "hello" as you are doing and when it doesn't work, let us know. Don't be shy. We KNOW how difficult some things can be. Ask for help.

Welcome to all the recent folks who have come on board. It is "worth" the struggle getting it all set up. We are lucky at RTMM to be working in such a beautiful area.  Glad you are joining us!

Hello All,

Great to meet you. A long time lurker, now that I'm finally starting to get the hang of FSX I guess it's time to poke my head above the parapet and introduce myself...

It all started when I bought Tongass Fjords  X about a month ago and was completely hooked on the whole low 'n' slow thing within half an hour of the install; the immersion factor of that add-on is second to none.  I've since  added FTX PFJ, PNW and SAK and a few Orbx airports to fly between (and that all happened 'cos I was looking to see if there'd ever been an FSX version of Misty Fjords...Orbx PFJ), but I always seem to end up back in Tongass somewhere; now if I could only cure myself of getting lost every single time I fly to Klawock...

I'm happy to fly most things "bush," and anything with floats on...currently a Piper Pacer floatplane in combination with Accu-Feel v2.

RTMM is such a great place. I've read the site on and off for a while, and plan on starting to add the RTMM sceneries to my install shortly to push up the immersion factor in areas outside of Tongass, so there'll be more questions coming, knowing me that'll probably be a LOT more questions!

Kind Regards,
Sam

lurking has its advantages, getting familiar with the site and all it offers takes more than a "little" time indeed.  It seems you have all the prerequisite scenery regions to fully enjoy the hundreds of locations available on RTMM.  Be sure and download and install the required libraries if you have not yet done so.  Then low n' slow will become even more adictive finding those tiny out of the way cabins etc.
So, we'll meet you at Misty's Place for the free beer you will so generously provide.
Questions welcome always of course.

Hello Sam,
Welcome here on RTMM. Have fun!!
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: MackemSam on May 04, 2015, 05:27:57 PM
 Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm looking forward to discovering RTMM and will be sure to post a few screenshots as I find more of the scenery locations. It'll also be my pleasure to stand a round at Misty's.

I have all the libraries downloaded and ready to go, I just haven't had the opportunity to get them installed yet. I thought I might download a few of the sceneries and do the whole lot in one session along with the AI Shipping package as the Inner Passage feels way too quiet whenever I fly round that way as things stand.

Spud - Funny you should mention cabins. I was on my way from Wragnell to Stewart with a Beaver floatplane yesterday and spotted a cabin just south of Ketchiken that I hadn't known existed; I had to land and explore, but the owner was out so I still don't know who it belongs to. I imagine there'll be a lot of that once I start installing the RTMM sceneries.

Jeff3163 - *dusts off best elephant-eating cutlery set and adjusts napkin* I gather I may be at this for some time, eh? ;)

corbu1 - Thanks. From what I've read here already, RTMM sounds like a fun place to hang out, so I'm looking forward to trying it all out.

Kind Regards,
Sam

Glad to have you on board, Sam. It's an adventure for sure. Sounds like you're getting the basic ORBX packs installed. Ya know, a good way to get started after that is the RTMM 'Legacy' package. That will get you up and running with some RTMM sceneries and you can add from there.

Post by: MackemSam on May 05, 2015, 10:46:29 AM
ualani, jsapair, stilleto2,

Thanks for the warm welcome, guys.  :)

jsapair - Yup, I had my eye on the Legacy collection as a starting point. I thought that, plus Misty's and the AI Shipping ought to keep me busy for a while.

ualani, stilleto2 - That's what I'm hoping. Don't get me wrong, I'm a great fan of Orbx scenery but, I kinda feel Tongass Fjords X just has the edge where the immersion factor is concerned; it's all those cabins and tucked away small details that you have to go and find. The impression I have is that RTMM does the same sort of thing for the adjacent Orbx scenery packs...adds to the immersion factor, which is just what I'm looking for.

I can't wait to get started. Now, if I could just work out how to add a pic to my forum signature I'd be a very happy man.

Kind Regards,
Sam

... and if you like tucked away cabins, check the USFS Cabins page. We even put in the "missing cabins" listed by the forest service, but not in ORBX or Tongass. There are pics of the real ones and flight plans to all of them. 320 cabins total.

Sam,
just as a teaser I have attached a Plan-G map of the area around Ketchikan with a few of the RTMM location depicted as small green dots.  There are many more in the entire region that RTMM develops for including Tongass X.  So whenever you feel like going ahead you will find more than enough to keep you in the air.

Spud - A few?! By the time I've downloaded everything here at RTMM (long term plan) I doubt I'd ever land...in-flight GA refuelling could come in real handy.  ;)

Hi, I'm new!   :D Ronald to the authorities, Ronnie to my Mum (and only my Mum!) Ron to everyone else. I've been FSXing for about 6 years now. I have of course been aware of RTMM but never got round to doing anything about it. Until online flying buddies of the AVSIM RTW race team decided to arrange a Tongass fjords tour.
I have to say that installing everything necessary was a baptism of fire!  :P But I made it and I'm delighted with the results. (http://www.finnglish.co.uk/Stuff/thumbsup2.gif)

Thanks for all your hard word work.

Welcome Aboard RTMM.  Yeah, the initial required libraries, software etc. are a bit of a chore but once downloaded and installed, as you said, the rewards far outweigh the effort.  "Down low and slow is the way to go, up high and fast doth blow!"

Hi there!

I have been here before, several years ago, but have now returned to include RTMM as part of my flying within FSX!

I've been around Microsoft Flight Sim since FS5 and a logbook to match!  I'ill confess a lot of my virtual aviation experience is with commercial jets with several VA's over the years including one which I currently run and manage myself.

In the real world I am based in the UK and try and squeeze my "sim" time in around family and work.

As I mentioned in my opening sentence I came across Misty Moorings back with FS9 somewhere around 2005 I think?  I flew in and around the areas for twelve months or so before moving on.

On return to this great website a few weeks ago I was once more astounded at the depth of detail available when flying within the region.  The amount of time spent in putting together such a fantastic resource is considerable.  Starting from scratch as I did to download and install the various required files was well spent and I look forward to once more exploring a stunning part of the world once more in FSX!

F2004 MM was a great scenery project that has continued and expanded for FSX.  Glad your doing it 'sensible' by going slowly and enjoying the experience.  No sense in trying to 'do it all' at once.  Now although an old gun at the scenery, it is a new sim version and new scenery so it also new free beer on the the 'newbie' at Misty's Place.  Belly up the bar boy the beer is free!!!   ;D

Hello BamaKevin,
     Welcome to the Return to Misty Moorings forum.  Thanks for saying "hello". 

     Yes, we speak P3D here.  We'll help you get started by directing you to the scenery "Object Libraries" that you'll need (to be able to see everything correctly).
     You may also ponder an addition to your collection, of Tongass Fjords X, and Pacific Fjords too.  But let's just concentrate on the libraries for now.
     Read the forum posts, as most questions have been asked and answered already.  If you don't see an answer to your problem, we want to know about it.  ;)

The Object Libraries can be found by clicking the link here:

Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: spud on August 13, 2015, 12:36:38 PM
Kevin,
welcome aboard RTMM.  Alway nice to see a "newbie" that asks the right questions.  Libraries are absolutely essential for RTMM scenry no matter which version of FSX or P3D your using.  As for the two payware products Jeff mentioned unfortunately those two are where the lion's share of RTMM scenery resides but on the scenery download page what region is required for a particular destination is listed so you can avoid those downloads until such time as the old wallet will allow buying both PFJ and Tongass X.
Tongass X has allowed us to utilize AI aircraft for one of the enhancements to RTMM so without that addon you will need to wait for that enhancement as well.
There is so much available to enhance your simming experience on the site please dig deep and you will be amazed just how much information etc. Doug has on the site.
Now for the most important thing of all; remember the new guy has to buy the beer!  So meet ya at Misty's place when your next payday rolls around.  :P ;D

As far as aircraft I have the A2A Cub and was hoping for a few suggestions in this area.  Looks like I need a good float plane too. I like the looks of the Aerosoft Beaver but looks like it may not be compatible with P3D yet.

Post by: BamaKevin on August 13, 2015, 08:24:13 PM
Jeff I thought I read on this site that someone installed the Beaver and had some missing gauges.  I hope it is compatible cause it looks like a aircraft I may want.  Did you use a migration tool?
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: jeff3163 on August 13, 2015, 08:44:33 PM
Hi Kevin,
     I don't remember if I used the migration tool or not.  Why should I have to?  There are no special script files to install elsewhere etc.  I usually just drag/drop my planes from FSX, into P3D.  If you do that, only do ONE PLANE at a time.  Test it, then do the next.  Some planes will crash P3D.  It's nice to know which one it is.  Don't forget to move the effects and gauges over also, making sure they are compatible.  If not, swap 'em.
     It is possible that I have forgotten about fixing gauges.  That does kinda ring a bell.  But I mess with the gauges of my planes all the time, so no big deal for me.  I have swapped out some, like the airspeed.  The default one didn't go high enough.  (My super modified beaver can go 270 knots wide open, then touch down at 35 knots. ;) )  Not "realistic", but is such a blast to fly.  All my other planes get neglected. 
     If some gauges don't work in P3D, just use other ones that do.   ;)
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: stiletto2 on August 13, 2015, 09:14:33 PM
Aerosoft Beaver needs to be installed into P3D using the Flightsim Estonia tool and then to get the gauges to work you need to download and install a revised .cab file available in the RTMM FAQ section under "P"  titled:

P3D Fix Files

If you have more questions on this start a new thread under Help and Troubleshooting so we don't hijack this Welcome thread any further than we have....

Thanks.

Hello Kevinsue,
     Welcome to RTMM forum.  You've found us!  Now the adventure begins.  With downloading and installing the libraries, that is.  You only need to install the scenery locations that you are interested in, but all libraries must be in place first.  So start at the page called "Misty's Place" above, and you'll find the links to all the various aspects of our scenery there.  Click on the "Object Libraries" button to begin.  Glad to have you in our community.

Welcome Aboard RTMM Kevinsue,
although the start up curve is a tad steep getting all the libraries installed and the various ORBX software will bring you a lot more pleasure and adventure once its complete.
The main thing about RTMM is isn't a one time grab and growl type of experience.  You will be here for a long time discovering all the low n' slow adventures.

Welcome to RTMM Kevinsue! As already mentioned by Jeff, start with the libraries and install them all first as instructed. Then it's all ready for you to discover.

Have fun,

I'm pleased to have found this active group!

I hadn't heard of RTMM until yesterday when I was searching for some object libraries to use with my newly-purchased Instant Scenery 3. Didn't take long before I was hooked.

I've been bush flying in MSFS since Emma Field was first published by Lago.

I now have the ORBX NA areas except SAK, and I just bought Tongass Fjords.

I'm running FSX:SE on Windows 10, with DX10.

I'm looking forward to flying with you in this delightful neighbourhood.

Welcome jschall,
You'll find more objects in our libraries than you could ever dream of! Have fun with Instant Scenery and if you have any questions about it there's plenty of folks around here who can lend you a hand.

BTW, don't let Spud hustle you at Misty's Place. He's always hitting up new members for free beer. I don't know how he can handle that much beer!

jschall is in the house and welcome to RTMM. I as well had Emma Field many moons ago and thought it was awesome. Hope you find everything you need if not just ask.

Looking forward to that free beer and I will buy the Beaver Oil chasers....smooooooth!

JSchall,

We can always use new scenery developers around here so if you have Instant Scenery and feel creative, check out our rules for developers and if you're still interested, great.

Wait a minute you guys, you didn't mention to jschall that he has to buy a round at Misty's Place for everyone. Anyway welcome and you'll be hard pressed to find a better bunch. Don't worry about asking dumb questions I've asked them all and they have pointed out the errors of my ways ;)

Welcome aboard RTMM jschall,
Just about everything has already been said including the need to host free beer at Misty's Place.  Just grab all the required libraries before you start downloading the scenery so it will all work 'out of the box'!
Oh BTW I handle all that beer one glass at a time just like eating an elephant one bite at a time!

I'm heading North to Alaska, again.

After a too long absence brought on by my annual crash and unsuccessful foray into Steam I have returned to FSX and my beloved Misty Moorings.

I just finished rebuilding my Orbx West Coast and now I am ready to do the same for Misty.

With the Sunrise at my back this keeps going through my head

My home is in the desert
Where all the plants and critters will cause you some pain
And there is no place here to land my float plane
So it's back to Misty's Place
Where I can enjoy flying in the fog
And the cold cold rain.

Hello pilots

   Preston here from Florida...Trying to get back into some low and slow flying!!!!  :)  I got the Flight Replicas Super Cubs and wanted some good places to fly them..Am disabled so home all day with nothing to do but fly and cook...LOL  Would love to have some flying buddy's if anyone can do it..Is RTMM using TS3 now??

Hello Preston,
     Welcome to the forum.  You've found the right place for low-n-slow flying, and cruising the waters in a boat of your choice.  So many destinations to explore.  We're not the best at hosting a multiplayer environment, but welcome anyone who can pull it off.  We've had several attempts at getting something going, but I don't know if a group has formed.  I don't think so.  I would welcome a dedicated TS for our community.  Keep your eyes on the multiplayer thread, and use it to get something going with like-minded pilots.  Good luck.   8)

Nope.  Server is offline.  Last I heard, we had a room at DigitalThemePark.  I don't know if it is still active.

My name is Brian Smith.  I haven't flown on flight sim in quite a while until recently.  I became disillusioned with FSX and went back to FS9, then discovered that my son needed me more than Flight sim.  He is now 18 and spending his last year here with us before he leaves for University.  I used to do scenery design for Misty Moorings and other groups.  I also did a lot of repaints, beta testing, and review writing, so if you remember me, great.  If not, please say hi.

Hi Brian,

Welcome back!  I was not active with Misty Moorings so would not remember you, but we are always happy to have members with your scenery design, repaint talents and testing capability.  Let us know how we can help you get back in the swing of things.

Thank you, Rod.  Yes, I suppose it was a long time ago in a galaxy far far away.   Hopefully if my sceneries didn't make the migration, whoever made the new ones was able to use my textures or objects.

Hello Brian,
     Welcome back home.  It has been a long time.  I came to the team in 2011, and we were already "Return to Misty Moorings" by then.  Get settled in, and take a look around.  See if you recognise anything in the scenery, but I doubt any original Misty Moorings got ported over.  We are situated over a few Orbx regions now, and fully FSX/P3D compatible.  No more FS9 stuff.  Was Spud around in the old days?  Anyway, Brad and Doug are here.  They can fill you in better.  See you around the forum.  Welcome.   :)

Welcome back Brian,
I am also a more recent adherent to RTMM and missed the FS9 version.  Jumped in with both feet when I saw the results behind the concept.  Being an old Idaho native (deported to FL) I like 'bush' low n' slow flying and enjoy RTMM very much.  Have a good look around the site, (only takes a few weeks!) and you will see that the offerings are second to none that I know of.  The scenery guru's on the team constantly are updating their skills and knowledge providing  adventures for the members second to none.
Now just meander over to Misty's Place and we'll tip a few.  ;D

welcome to the epitome of Low n' Slow.  Although getting set up (Library installation and some Payware and Freeware scenery) to make it ALL work smoothly.  Once your finished with that one time chore you will find the adventure at RTMM very interesting and challenging.  Just take your time read the extensive information here at the site, ask questions when you have any doubts and then break out your wallet at Misty's Place to buy everybody a free round (virtual)!  :P

Hi Folks,
Joe here. Been flight simming since FS3 or 4. Flying 'low & slow' is my preference. Flew helos ten years in Navy. Spent
another 27 in the Coast Guard 'til I retired (east coast - never made it to AK).
Actually this is the first time I've really been to RTMM. Have been a semi regular contributor to Avsim, SOH, and MAIW
with AC and AI flight plans and repaints through the years.
Got here through 'Tongass Fjords' which I found I "needed' for a CGAS Sitka project I did for MAIW.
Am hooked now. First, off to check out the object/scenery libraries !
Cheers !

Welcome aboard OldCoastie and Kento. There's enough things to see and do at RTMM to last 2 lifetimes. Once you download the essential object libraries and install the necessary ORBX and Tongass sceneries you can relax and  take things a little bit at a time with installing and exploring the RTMM world scenery. There's a kinds of friendly folk around here to help you at any time, so don't hesitate to ask if you get stuck on something or need advice.

Hi All,

New to RTMM and just recently found the website! Very impressive! I'm Jason Calvert based in Winchester, CA. My brother and I (Tim Calvert) have recently launched a new venture and have created a new virtual air service (www.victoryairservice.com). With permission from RTMM, we would be honored to use some of the great scenery as destinations for our cargo routes and passenger runs.

Our website, air service and schedule are a work in progress and we are expected to be up and running by the end of December.  Drop by and check out our website. I'm looking forward to downloading and installing the RTMM scenery. Thanks to the developers for offering this for free and for the continued evolution and improvement of flying in FSX.

Hi Guys,

I thought Christmas had come when I found this site, amazing what you have here. I am working my way through the installation process at the moment. I have one question, is Tongass Fjords X compatible with FSX Steam Edition?

A little about myself, I live in Derbyshire, UK just on the fence of East Midlands Airport EGNX. I spent 36 years in the RAF as an ATC controller. I'm now grey haired and really enjoying the flight sim world. I'm really looking forward to exploring this lovely part of the world.

Hi All,

I'm Gary and I live on the south coast of UK. I don't do any real flying and probably never will but I am a keen sim pilot. I've been sim flying since the days of the ZX Spectrum so that gives you some idea of my age.

I'm currently using P3D V2.5 on an average machine. I won Tongass Fjords X in a competition 3 or 4 years ago, I also have the Orbx Southern Alaska installed. I tend not to fly anywhere else now, the scenery has spoilt me :-) I tend to fly the Alabeo C207 bush more often than not but if frames get bogged down I may jump into the default FSX Cessna 172

I do have some considerable experience with 3d modelling and ADE. I'm hoping to be able to contribute to some of the Alaska scenery if work permits.

So, as I said: Hello every one :-)

Welcome to this merry band of men, and as always the probie buys the house a round at Misty's. You will not find a more helpful bunch here, if you have any problems with any downloads, I know this for a fact, so have fun and enjoy the efforts the team here has done for us

Hi Gary,
Welcome here on RTMM!
There's a lot of stuff to explore...

Do you also have ORBX PFJ region installed? Most of RTMM sceneries are located there...
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: Bradallen43 on December 02, 2015, 06:07:36 PM
Welcome Gary and everyone else I've probably missed saying welcome too. It's great to see so many new people taking an interest in what we have to offer here at RTMM.

Gary, please contact me with a personal message here in the forums and I can discuss how you can help out with your skills here at RTMM.

Thank you for your offer. It's always great to hear that people want to help out and contribute.

Hello Gary,
     Welcome to RTMM.  Thanks for stopping to say "hi".  So, as Klaus said, do you have the Pacific Fjords region, and the Pacific Northwest from Orbx?  Our scenery covers all regions from Vancouver to Homer these days.  You don't need all of it right away, certainly.  But be aware of that when choosing an RTMM destination.  Halibut Cove is in the SAK region, and I highly recommend that one.  The CIRP project is in the Glaciers of the Pacific Fjords area, around Stewart, B.C.  There are lighthouses and fishing camps to explore also. 
     Glad to have you aboard, and look forward to seeing anything you wish to contribute.  Contact Brad about any projects you have in mind.  See ya at Misty's ...  ;)
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: G.K. on December 03, 2015, 02:24:38 AM

I don't have the Pacific fjords or Pacific NW yet but at current prices I am planning to get them this month.

Looking forward to exploring.

Gary,
welcome to RTMM the "thinking man's" favorite location for flight simming.  With the ORBX having their 35% off sale and if your over 65 apply for the 20% discount and PFJ and PNW will be pretty inexpensive.  The scenery in the Northwest corner of N.A. is indeed spectacular.  Just make a reservation at Misty's Place to buy the gang a beer and we'll meet ya in the 'Great  White North'.

Thanks spud.

The thinking man's forum, I like that. As it happens I do a lot of thinking, so much in fact you'd think I'd be good at it..........just goes to show: practice doesn't always make perfect.

Not quite 65 yet but the orbx scenery is still damn cheap. If I go down the pub for a few beers with my mates I spend more.

Yes, welcome to RTMM. Can't emphasize Spud's comment enough, though. %35 discount on ORBX products until the 1st of the year. Now is definitely the time to get what you need to complete your scenery requirements. Get the wife a zarconia ring instead of that diamond you were looking at. I can't believe I just said that.  :P

Welcome aboard RTMM Rick,
If you have not yet visited the home page (http://return.mistymoorings.com/) be sure and go there as it contains information on all the things you'll need like Tongass Fjords X, all the RTMM Libraries which has all the proprietary object and textures the allow RTMM scenery to display.  Start up is somewhat involved and takes a little bit of time and effort but the rewards are certainly worth it.

As Doug already has said the forums are the heartbeat of RTMM.  Any questions you have just jump in and ask.  There haven't been many that stumped the great bunch of members who gladly share their own knowledge and discoveries with anyone who will just ask.

Now the most important part for each and every "Newbie".  Let us know when to meet you at Misty's Place bar so you can buy the beer for the gang!

Spud

That beer sounds good.   First round is on me since I learned to love India Pale Ale while spending time in Alaska.   I have Tongass Fjords installed along with the ORBX sceneries and they all look great.  Now, I just need to get the object libraries installed and move on to the scenery locations.  Hey, maybe I'll try flying as well!

I tend to tinker with stuff more than I use it.  I had a complex model train set when I was younger and mostly spent my time setting it up but rarely running it!  I'm 66 and doubt that will change much.

I spent 28 years with FedEx and sat in the jumpseat of a DC-10 (directly above and behind the captain) many times from Indy to Anchorage.  So, I really learned to love Alaska.  I'm semi-retired now and teach online from Florida.  So, I'm always in front of a computer!  Thanks, Rick

Hello Reiner,
     Welcome to the RTMM forum.  You've landed in bush flying heaven.  Once you've gotten the libraries installed, you can begin adding destinations to your simulator.  There are plenty of Canadian and US airstrips and cabins to visit.  All the way from Vancouver Island, BC to Homer, AK. you can find airstrips, cabins, and marinas, and lighthouses to visit.  You can go by floatplane or boat.  If you need help, and can't find the answer, just ask.   :)

Hi Guys,

Only just found your site, can I use this with P3D v3.1, P3D 2.5, P3D 1.4, and FSX ?

would there be any conflicts with Orbx libs and scenery?

I still have to read all of your pages, where would I start to download stuff, what would I do and it what order?

I have read the User Guide

Ron
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: jeff3163 on January 14, 2016, 09:19:49 PM
Hi Ron,
     First of all, sit back and relax.  Take a deep breath, blow it out, then repeat if necessary.  You should probably begin by reading the instructions provided on the home page, Misty's Place, or various threads on the topic of where to begin. 
     Welcome to RTMM and the forum.  We are happy to help guide you along the path to "bush country".  It all starts by installing the libraries.  Our scenery is not only Orbx compatible, it requires you to own the Orbx regions you wish to fly in.  All our locations are within the Orbx regional boundaries of PNW, PFJ, SAK, and Tongass Fjords by FSAddon.  Our locations are compatible with FSX and all P3D versions.  So breathe a sigh of relief, and smile slightly (to yourself).  You've found us.  Oh, and the downloads are in the download section.  ;D
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: wombat on January 14, 2016, 10:25:44 PM
Hi Jeff,
OK I'm relaxed, printed the guide and reading now.
I have the 4 global ones from Orbx, also North America Pacific Northwest, can I use any of your downloads with these?

Are there any others that you think I should get?

I should point out that I am a pensioner and on a restricted budget here in Western Australia.

Welcome to RTMM Ron,
besides the Home page information, which is a great starting point, have a look at this:

http://return.mistymoorings.com/getting_started/index.php

It leads you step by step through the process for RTMM to look its best and work the smoothest for you.

These forums have a great deal of information gleaned from several years of user input and advice so use the search function for specific questions and if that doesn't answer any question just pop on and ask.

Now for the important part for all 'newbies' when will you meet the gang at Misty's Place to buy the beer?

Post by: Bradallen43 on January 15, 2016, 08:24:39 PM
Hello Wombat and Welcome to RTMM.

As Jeff and Spud have already said the basic's for getting up to speed, I'll just say that when we designed our scenery it was meant to fit inside the ORBX FTX Regional scenery packages that Jeff mentioned. Those are "Pacific Fjords", "Southern Alaska" and "Pacific Northwest". And the FSAddon region that meshes in between PFJ and SAK, "Tongass Fjords".

So, were not sure how the objects we placed for our scenery locations found inside those regions will look at the same location inside FTX Global. Not yet at least because not all of us use that product line.

So, if you only have FTX Global and PNW installed at the moment, you'll most likely find that the majority of our locations might not show up in your simulator as they were designed. That is until you get the last three pieces of our coverage area puzzle in place. PFJ, SAK and Tongass.

Off the top of my head, what will work for you right now out of the box with your installation of PNW, I created the "Pacific Northwest Scenery Collection" that's available on our scenery page. That was designed for PNW. Also, I just completed "Vancouver Island Project: North Island". That's also going to fit in with PNW. You can also get "Owikeno Lake" and use that for sure. Doug did a great job as project lead on that one. That scenery alone will keep you interested for awhile. Also look for the scenery in our library by Urs Burkhardt named "Westwood Inn".  Nice and challenging place there.

Anybody else have some other PNW suggestions?

Good luck and save those pennies up so you can get PFJ, SAK and Tongass someday. You'll be glad you did.

Welcome again to RTMM.

Have fun,

Brad
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: Bradallen43 on January 15, 2016, 08:27:17 PM
Also, forgot to mention Wombat that Tongass Fjords is on sale right now for next to nothing. That's an amazing addition you'll be happy with.

Look near the top in our "General discussion" forum for that thread which was posted recently about Tongass being on sale.

Welcome aboard RTMM,
Bush flying is the game for sure.  Getting started takes a bit of effort to install all the required libraries and software but the effort will produce the most extensive and best bush flying scenery available anywhere.
The best way is to start at step one, the home page:

http://return.mistymoorings.com/

The information there has links to just about everything you will require for a successful RTMM experience.
Hundreds of location to visit and explore low and slow.

And of course being the 'new guy' we will all meet you at Misty's Place so you can buy the beer!
Enjoy and keep the shiny side up!

Hi there folks.  I've just discovered Misty Moorings, and all I can say is... WOW.  Seriously.

You guys have created an absolutely beautiful "world" here!  I can't even imagine how much work went into all this.

In real life, I fly for the hometown airline up in Southeast.  And while it's great fun flying 737s in and out of places like Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan, Petersburg etc, I spend a lot of time looking out the window on nice days at all the amazing places we're passing by, and hoping I get the chance to explore it all someday.  I was initially skeptical of desktop simulation, but I had no idea how far it had all come - the aircraft, the scenery, the weather... crazy!  I've just done a couple RTTM hops, but I can see that your flight plans and scenery will actually be an incredibly fun way to get acquainted with all the terrain I've always wanted to know better.  I can tell you the next time I'm descending on the RNP 29  to PAKT I'll be looking up Bostwick inlet and picturing Misty's Place ;-).

The hop I flew was in the Flight Replicas Super Cub (I used to instruct in a Cub, always had a soft spot for them) from Ketchikan to the Anan bear observatory.  I did it at dawn, in the fall, in Active Sky Next weather which thankfully wasn't windy up there tonight, but otherwise classic Southeast - ceiling ragged, up and down, in and out of rain showers.  Left the door open the whole way... guess there are some advantages to virtual flying ;-).

Anyway, point is, I was blown away at how immersive it all was... the way the cub tended to yaw around in the bumps, the up and down weather, the unbelievable scenery, ORBXs and yours.  And the storytelling you put into it.

Sincerely guys, thanks.  REALLY well done, you've knocked it out of the park with all of this.  I look forward to lots of exploration!

Welcome aboard Stearmandriver,
low n' slow is RTMM in a nutshell.  Glad your enjoying the efforts of the developers who try to bring the best adventures going 'here to there'.
Once your flight is complete its nice to just sit back and enjoy the great scenery provided by ORBX.  When compared to default FSX the world is so much closer to the actual beauty you see every day although from much higher.
Oh, yeah, see you at Misty's Place so you can buy the beer!

Welcome to RTMM Stearmandriver and Falkenhaus. And anybody else I've missed. I've been away placing hangars, signs, pipes. You know. Work..

Heading up to the PNW in July/August. Going to Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, then on a 7 day Glaciers Cruise on Princess. Following that up with five days of sightseeing around Denali, Anchorage, Seward. Can't wait. I'll be flying from KMCO into KSLC, KPDX and then back out of PANC for KMSP, KMCO on Delta.

Thanks for taking an interest in RTMM and if you need any assistance, just ask.

Have fun,

Brad

Hello from Alna, Maine.  I was stationed at a radar site in Alaska in the mid 70's and became friends with several bush pilots. I remember listening to stories of their adventures and thinking I would have loved bush flying as well.  Such as life, I left the state and never got a chance to go on a flight.  Thank you RTMM for giving me this chance.

Hiya MM folks, and thanks for the opportunity to join in.  I am Phil from Cornwall UK.  I have just finished building a 'sim-pit' which is configured for 'GA' use rather than 'VA'.  I have FSX-SE and registered at VATSIM although not very good at formal ATC and a TeamSpeak 3 user.

Are there any multiplayer events I could join?

Best to all!

Steve, many thanks for all the welcomes and  I'll sure see how things go as I install Misty's add-ons and report any thing that doesn't seem right, but I haven't had any issues with OrbX, or any other scenery or aircraft with FSX-SE.  I'm a happy SE user for sure.  I'll buy the beer as soon as I find the club house bar folks.

Post by: jeff3163 on March 24, 2016, 06:55:24 PM
Hi Phil,
     Welcome to RTMM.  We are a hearty bunch of bush pilots (virtually, mostly), and really enjoy getting in and out of all the nooks and crannies of the Alaskan coastline.  It is usually a personal experience, that can be shared with pictures or videos, and stories.  We're pretty "multiplayer challenged" though, and can't seem to group up.  Not that we don't want to, but we are an international crowd with a wide variety of time zones etc. between us.  We are partnered with two virtual airlines though, which is not multiplayer.  But you can fly structured flights, and log your hours for virtual "money".  There is St. Paul Airlines and also Fly Alaska (aka Alaska Adventures) virtual airlines.  They both offer great tours and routes, as well as hosting various fly-in events.
     Now for the important part.  You can find the bar at Misty's Place, just a couple miles southwest of Ketchikan airport.  (install Misty's Place, the hub of activity for the Ketchikan bush pilots).  It is all virtual, of course.  So don't bring real money, it's no good here.
     Again, welcome to the community.  Take some time to read the background story about Misty's Place and who the heck Misty is anyway.  You'll be glad you did.

I found it!  But no money folks; I'm broke after filling up the Pawnee with AVGAS at Misty's prices.

I suppose it costs a fortune to haul 100 octane into Misty's.  Can I get credit at Misty's Bar please? :-)

You can see Misty about some dishes that need washing, and the buildings need painting,  ... and the runway needs smoothing out too.  ;)

(You do know those buildings should not be black, don't you?  We'll have to get that fixed.)

Sure looks like a missing Library object doesn't it?  Phil, have you installed the Scenery Object Tester?

Link to the download:

Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: ualani on March 28, 2016, 10:51:11 AM
He's not missing the object. It's a texture issue. If the object was missing you wouldn't see a black looking building and wouldn't see at all anything at the location. Most likely it's the old duplicate texture syndrome.
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: ualani on March 28, 2016, 05:31:33 PM
Phil,
FSXP3D ez-vintage_hangers.bgl is the library that contains the object that looks black. You obviously have this library installed since we can see the shape of the building but it's all black. Now do a system search for the following files which define the textures that the building object needs:

BROWN RUST 128.DDS
HANGER OLD 2 A.DDS
HANGER OLD 2 A_LM.DDS
HANGER OLD 2 B.DDS
HANGER OLD 2 C.DDS
RUSTY METAL BLUE.DDS
RUSTY METAL GREEN.BMP
SCRATCHED METAL YELLOW.DDS

Do a Windows system search for each file.  If you have more than one copy of any or all of these on your system, then this probably indicates your problem. If so, post back and we'll help you through the process of what you need to do.

Hi my name is Ivan, Slough UK. I have been a virtual VFR and glider pilot for the last 5 years or so. Recently moved over to FSX:SE and have not encountered any problems so far installing Orbx and Misty's sceneries. Used a consolidated library as it was easier to fix the duplicates with your program.

I have done two short flights from Misty's, the scenery was amazing with challenging landings. My amph is a Real Air Citabra with floats.

Hi All

I've been flight simming on and off for a lot of years starting with 'just flight'. I gave up on FSX a couple of years ago because i had the crashing problem and I just could not fix it. (Shame on you MS!)

But last year, after watching a couple of you tube vids I was impressed with the strides made in terms of quality of scenery I decided to give P3D a go and I am well happy with it. Most of my scenery is ORBX and I love to fly the OZ Grumman Goose around Alaska and Scotland.

I'm an Englishman retired in the Caribbean and it's fun to fly around in some mountains and snow when it's roasting outside.

Believe it of not, I found RTMM only a few weeks ago and I appreciate the time and effort you guys at RTMM have put into this facility - it makes Alaska come alive and I love it. I've nearly finished all the Legacy flights and loved them. I look forward to many more hours of enjoyment thanks to you guys.

Keep up the good work. I wish there were more like-minded individuals for other parts of the world.

Love and peace
Josh

You guys are incredible all the hard work and dedication you guys put into this site payed off completely.

Things i like to do:

Im curently a Computer Tech, i also love the Automotive Industry, and ofcourse Aviation on my spare time i love to take Screenshots of most of the trips i do in FS and share them with people in the FS community so many i actually had to create a seperate FB page just for Screens.

Im more of an Explorer most of the guys i know stick to one location in FS (nothing wrong with that ofcourse) i love going everywheree and anywhere and always on the lookout for new scenery ORBX, RTMM and OZX along with all the Ant Aussie Airports.

Thanks for having me guys Regards: Abel R. (AKA Garciamk4)

Hi  jjsemperfi,

Glad to have a fellow rotorhead on board..  ;) When you happen to fly a chopper in the RTMM world and want some extra challenging touchdowns, try Kildala Pass for suspension pinnacle landings or landable boats for moving helidecks .. If you miss, you'll only break your rotorblades here, virtually, not your pocket, life or limbs.. hence can still limp to treat the gang at Misty's Place for a round of beer. No excuse there! ;D

Hi, Anton here and I'm new to RTMM after 9 years with OZx and Orbx, flying in all types of a/c. Favourites now are RA Lancair Legacy V2 with GTN750s', QW757, AS BeaverX, PMDG 737NG and Alabeo R77 heli.

I have already been enjoying the Alaskian Experiance via orbx's PNW, SAK and Global LC together with LCNA and Vector with Pilots Global Mesh 2010 for FSX. I have stuck to FSX (now SE version) for reasons of compatibility with so many addons'. I have been looking forward to adding both Tongass FjordsX and RTMM for quite some time now and have finally began the journey having just purchased Tongass FjordsX from Aerosoft and have began what I'm hoping is a long and fruitful journey.

So off for my first flight from PAKT to Misty's. Cheers for now

Hello Anton,
Welcome to RTMM....Have fun exploring the RTMym world. There's so much stuff to discover you will enjoy it.
Misty's place is a good starting point for your flights. It's RTMM main base and you are in range of lots of RTMM sceneries from it.

Great also fly heli's in FSX. I only fly the choppers.....I love the sound of rotors and the way helos behave in flight.....I guess the heli you mentioned is the Robinson R66 from Alabeo?

Thanks for your welcome and Jeff. Your right Robinson haven't upgraded their jet chopper yet, I did mean the R66. I have now had a flight from Ketchikan to Misty's Place in the Amp AS Beaver X with several water and land landings. Great place, makes me wonder if it exists or just fictional. Either way absolute fun in the sim, I used local weather via Active Sky Next and there was plenty of mist to live up to the reputation.

With PFJ, SAK, Tongass Fjords x and now MM it's another world. I have just installed Misty Air Taxi so will whip up to SAK for a look around and try the Trip Tic before coming back down to explore the original MM world.

Anton,
always great when experienced FSX/ORBX scenery veterans come to RTMM and find all the great places the team have designed to expand the FS experience to both real world and fictional destinations in the 'bush'.  Misty's Place is fictional but the center of the RTMM world so to speak.
As you have already made it to Misty's we'll meet you there for that free beer your going to buy!!  ::) ;D

Hi all.  Been flight simming since my first Commodore 64 in the '80's.  Now I have 3 networked computers running 7 monitors.  And an iPad for charts and other "stuff".  And a very large coffee pot.  Anyhow, I digress...

I never did bush flying much in my sims.  Being retired Air Force (now) I was more into the "faster" aircraft (even though I've had my PPL since I was 18).  I have all the ORBX sceneries for the RTMM area, and decided a couple days ago to try some of the RTMM stuff.  I...Have...Been...Assimilated.  Geez!!! I even went out and bought a payware Beaver yesterday.  And I've never paid for a beaver in my life before (wait...wrong forum...).  So watch out for the new guy buzzing your scenery at 50' AGL with pontoons now (at least when I'm not creating dust devils hovering over it in my helicopters).

Seriously, I had no idea RTMM would enhance my ORBX experience in the RTMM area as much as it has.  I am flying to places there now that I would have NEVER gone to myself in the past, and seeing the scenery in a whole new light.  Thanks to all the developers here who have contributed to this project.  Simply amazing work.   :D

Doug and I were recently interviewed on Flightsim.com about RTMM and how this all came about if you're curious. We have a great team of people here that share the passion for "Beaver's" and "Bush"!!!

Hi everyone,

I'm new here - well actually, I signed up last year, but it's only now that I've finally managed to spend some time with the RTMM sceneries and in the forums.
I've seen only a fraction of it so far, but I'm already amazed at what is available here. The sceneries are incredible with lots of details to discover. A work of passion, without a doubt! So, first of all a big Thank You! To all the creators who have made this possible. It's wonderful to see the flight sim community so alive.  :)

As far as FS goes, I've spent a lot of time with X-Plane lately, which has plenty of high quality freeware to offer, as well as some other advantages... But overall I love coming back to FSX/P3D for the stunning addons. As a huge fan of A2A aircraft I eagerly await the upcoming Connie, but currently I enjoy flying the CAC Winjeel by Ant's Airplanes as well as the C-47 by Manfred Jahn & Team.

Anyway, I'll be starting my PPL training next spring - if everything goes as planned, in a 1945 Piper L4. Until then I'm going to be busy discovering the various RTMM locations. Time to get the A2A Cub out of the hangar...  :D

Cheers!

Welcome aboard Don Q.  training in an L4 "Grasshopper" couldn't get any more 'basic'.  I will say in my experience it will make you a much better pilot when your ready to solo.  Stick and Rudder flying and the little wheel in back puts you heads above learning in the modern span cans used now.  I had some time in an Aronica Sedan before entering Naval Flight Training so the transition to the SNJ (T6) wasn't too bad.
It wasn't until multi-engine training in SNB (Twin Beech) that I discovered you could kill yourself.  First landing at NOLF Choctaw touch and go landing on R/W 36 and after re-gaining control of the swerve took off on R/W 04!
Enough war stories see ya at Misty's so you can but the gang that free beer.

Welcome FalconAF,

I, too, was initially on Commodore 64 and Amiga.  I also used to love flying the fighter jets (e.g. Falcon 4.0).  But, ultimately, became a low and slow fan.   However, now and then, I will switch to the F22 and fly nap-of-the-earth at 1,000 kts in the Western Chugach mountains of Alaska.  With P3D, a fast processor, a GTX980 and the low density of the scenery (e.g. The Western Chugach) my system can just manage to repaint the scenery in real time and resolve it just before I get there.  It is a hoot!

Have fun with RTMM.

Rod   
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: FalconAF on September 13, 2016, 09:02:09 PM
Thanks Rod.  I'm having a ball with RTMM in my helo's and the payware Beaver I bought for it.  I'm going to places I would have never seen in the ORBX sceneries without RTMM.

Got a little frisky last night though.  I also have a payware Twin Otter.  I'm pretty good at flying it, so thought, "What the heck.  I can get this thing into Misty's Place.  No Problem!"

They are still recovering the wreckage from the rocks at the northern end of the runway.  The after-landing rollout was a little longer than I anticipated.   ;D

It has been awhile since its been mentioned but if you really want to experience the ORBX/RTMM scenery in an entirely different way take one of the boat trips:

Hi all!

I'm Adriano from Rome, almost 45yo, back to fight simulation after years (I started with Sublogic Flight Simulator for CBM64)

I just bough all the scenery packs (Tongass and the 3 ORBX) and this evening I'll try installing the objects. I'm sure this will be a very long, possibly endless adventures. I liked this project since my very first visit to this website. My plane of choice will be the Aerosoft DH Twin Otter extended for his STOL properties.

I'll be back soon with the first impressions.

Ciao!

Ahh, more free beer at Misty's Place!  Adriano, welcome aboard RTMM.  Getting the Libraries installed is always the first step now that PNW, PFJ and SAK and Tongass are in place.  Most of the actual scenery locations in RTMM install pretty quickly.
Spent 2 weeks in your beautiful city while on a Med. cruise in the U.S. Navy.  Had my wife come over and follow the ship to our ports of call.  Rented a Vespa in Rome and we went everywhere, great time.
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: Adriano72 on December 18, 2016, 10:00:10 AM
Actually I had many Vespa in my life, before the birth of my now three years old daughter! It's a great smoking piece of metal indeed!

Remaining in theme of cruise ships, I spent an hour yesterday to solve a weirdness in my Tongass installation: near Sitka airport I was having trees where water was supposed to be and among them a cruise ship! Surely a beautiful view but quite psychedelic I'd say...

The problem was that there were two terrain.cfg files in P3D and I was seeing all the tongass entries were in place in one but eventually I discovered the other terrain.cfg files under C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3 was not updated and it was the one that needed appending the tongas entries to have everything work!

Now I'm adding the RTMM files, I didn't find so far any hint about where to place them in P3D. I'm looking for it

Ciao!
Adriano
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: Doug on December 18, 2016, 10:11:43 AM
Our 'standard' answer on placement is P3D/Addon Scenery/Misty Moorings/ .....   If you put all the RTMM stuff in there, then it won't get mixed up with the rest of your virtual world.

When you are starting to put the RTMM locations in, most people are lured by the alphabetical listings on the scenery page and start at "A".  Misty Moorings is almost a "sub world" ... and adding each one like that becomes more of a task than a pleasure.

I suggest you go to the "Go To Table" and find an AREA to put in to enjoy.  Do you like flying Tongass? Then use the table search for TFX and everything in Tongass will show up. Or perhaps you'd like all flights connected with Misty's Place ...  Type "Misty' Place" into the search box. This give you a list of all flights coming out of that location. This is a nice group to have.

Go to the Here2There page .... the buttons in the table at the top will get you headed in many great directions. There is a button for the GoTo table there. Click on it and start exploring.

Another way is put in the "multiple location" groups. On the GoTo Table, you'll see these listed in Dark Red. One of these is "Missing Cabins" ... if you add those, along with the cabins already in your computer from Tongass X, PFJ and SAK, you will have over 400 locations to fly to by just putting in the ONE addition.  Owikeeno is another "group" that has over 30 locations in it.

Use the GoTo table to find what you would LIKE to fly ... short trips, long trips, easy, hard, etc. The table can help you select your preferences...you can search on ANY of the columns there. Also the "Map" link for each location will give you a map route to that location. That will give you an idea of that is the kind of flight you would like to take.

Pick something you would enjoy flying, put it in, then forget about all the rest of the RTMM world and fly what you've downloaded. Many of these (like the cabins) will keep you entertained for DAYS!  When you have finished or want to move on, go back to the table and pick another.  But don't try to add all of the RTMM scenery locations ... that's a CHORE!  This should be FUN and you should do the MINIMUM to have the MAXIMUM fun from your sim.

Enjoy, Doug

Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: Adriano72 on December 18, 2016, 07:25:48 PM
Thank you Dough!  Actually I think I've installed almost everything! Maybe I missed Owikeeno since I don't remember that name during my search for all the objects nor I couldn't find the link so far (I'll keep searching)

The scenery object tester is perfect, I just miss the roof of the green hangar (number 5) that is shown as a wire frame (what could be the reason?). Everythinbg else, crane and blue wave container etc is showing perfectly.

I've already flown some short trip to a pair of cabine near Sikta, I'm literally flabbergasted by the amount of things to discover in this incredible Misty universe!

Now I'm going to try some flight plan!

A presto!

Hi,
I'm René, from eastern France, back again, had to reinstall Windows 7 64bits and just migrated to P3D v3 latest version. Ive kept FSX, just in case, but the graphic differences are obvious, looks like a completely new simulator ( with also a brand new graphics board ). I just finished to reinstall about 100 RTMM sceneries, rediscovering the whole areas, Needless to say, fantastic eye candies and appreciating even more the great job you guys all did and still keep doing. The AK panhandle and BC will definitely stay my favorites places for VFR flying, along with the Aerosoft Beaver and RTMM, of course.
Keep the good things rolling, see you soon,

Installing all the RTMM staff is the starting point...we know this takes some time, but when you have all the sceneries on your system you will enjoy beautiful flying time in the virual alaskan skies.

It's now 3 months ago I changed from FSX to P3dv3 and this was the right decision for me. P3d is a total new experience even for the helicopter simpilots like me......

Welcome Aboard RTMM to Rene' and Vincederio.  Enjoy the great bush scenery from RTMM and let us know if any assistance is required, there are people more than willing to lend a hand for any problems you might have getting started.
Now for the best part, The gang will meet you at Misty's Place so you both can buy the beer!  ;D ;)
Or should Misty make sure her supply of wine is up to date?   ::)

No problem, I am qualified DHC6 and I can fill my hold of Beaujolais, Bourgognes and Bordeaux for the cellar of Misty Place   :P :P :P

They must not have sassafras trees in the North West. The roots are wonderful smelling, and when boiled, taste like weak root beer. Sassafras tea anyone?

 :o  Oh yeah, sassafras!  I hate sassafras.  It tastes like bad licorice to me.   :o  ... but a root beer float is creamy goodness.  No, we don't have sassafras trees here, as far as I know.   :-\  ;)

I grew up with Hires and A&W root beer but they changed over the years.  Theu got weaker and I'm guessing it was when they removed the caffeine (if they actually had any to start with - not something you pay attention to as a kid!).  Barq's still adds it and the drink has far more bite to it.  Couldn't tell you when I last had any root beer, though.  It's usually ginger ale now.

Post by: spud on February 09, 2017, 12:35:30 PM
Here is a cut n' paste from the link in my previous post in this thread.
Yep things changed in 1960 as the Government started taking "care" of us with more 'regulations and restrictions'.

"Then, in 1960, everything changed. The sassafras root, a key ingredient in root beer, was ironically banned by the U.S. Food And Drug Administration because it was found to be a carcinogen. Root beer was no longer considered to be good for you, nor did it have any roots in it. Companies then found artificial flavors to preserve the flavor of the sassafras root without actually using the banned ingredient. This experimentation led to the root beer flavor we know and love today."

Post by: ualani on February 09, 2017, 01:24:59 PM
They force fed 2,000 lab rats the equivalent of 9,000, 16 oz. bottles of sassafras based root beer a day over the course of an entire year. 3 of them got cancer. The rest of them gained 20 lbs. Thus the sassafras removal. This gave some other genius the idea to run the same tests on saccharin, producing the same result. So long saccharin as well. Then they tested DDT.....

Post by: Doug on February 09, 2017, 01:26:04 PM
One day they'll figure out that the water is what's giving them cancer and put it onto the carcinogen list.

Ha! been so long that I might as well say "I'm new here too".
Finally got the system running again.  First it had to be re-formatted and WIN10 re-installed.  Got it home and less than 3 weeks late it stopped recognizing any input devices (mouse, keyboard etc.) Back to shop and again a wipe of WIN and programs, re-install WIN 10 and then I had to re-install all the programs so the files would work.  Of course I lost all scenery and have spent two days installing 70+ ORBX scenery files.
Now the long slow process of getting RTMM files back and running.  Anymore problems like this again and I'm going to take up drinking instead of simming.  :o >:( ;D

I guess my enthusiasm was a tad premature.  I'm getting an out of memory error after a few min. flying after finally getting all the ORBX and OZx scenery re-installed.  Not much sense in installing RTMM until I solve the current problem.  I waited 3 years after release of FSX to port over from the old FS and I have spent well over 60% of keyboard time and effort dicking around solving problems with this PissPoor simulator.  Was never completed by M$ prior to release and never properly "fixed" by them just crutch, patch, fiddlin' and poken' but users since day one.
I'd get P3D but reading all the problems users have with that sim as well I'm not gonna be another "Alpha" tester for Lockheed Martin.

Thanks for the kind words and welcome, I did  download some of the 'essentials' yesterday, and I thought I had most of it in  hand, then as I am NOT a computer 'geek ' ( used with respect) I got so bogged down in the , what I thought was the technical jargon.... I kind of gave up.. well sort of....... I did watch a video or two of guys flying here, and it is truly awesome..... I'm always very leery of deleting files etc, so as not to screw up what I already have, as I can do that quite well, then I am diddled....... maybe I'm just too timid.... I will go back a read more of the 'how to' stuff... but there seem to be a lot of how to.... not complaining , just need to understand...... I guess if I can operate a huge road grader with no steering wheel and become an instructor , I can figure this out, eh?? LOL!!  Thanks again fellows, I will give it a go... with luck.... and some good advice...... :-\

Just start at the beginning by downloading and installing all of the object libraries. Can be a pain, but absolutely essential. Then download a few sceneries that are compatible with the ORBX and Tongass Fjords you own. Take it slowly at first. If you get stuck anywhere post in the Help and Troubleshooting Forum (http://forum.mistymoorings.com/index.php?board=3.0) and you should get help ASAP.

I'm Robert from Virginia.  I'm sort of new, coming from FS9 last where I flew with the original Misty Moorings.  I skipped FSX all together and basically stopped simming for a few years.  Now, I've got a new computer build with P3D.  Things have come a long way since I was using FS9.

I'm a real-world Commercial pilot, although now medically grounded.  I think I can find a lot of enjoyment in the new site.  Hopefully, I can get everything installed with no issues.

Basically, if you look at #5 in the index, I've kept a log of all that I did and how I did it ... including a few speed bumps along the way.  You may not do it exactly as I did, but it might give you some ideas.  As I continue to go forward, I keep adding to this log.

Thanks for the welcome Jeff,
(and spelled the right way too)

Jethro is Just a nickname but I think it makes me sound like a no shoes, rope-belt wearing, cob pipe smoking, hillbilly. Nothing like me (IRL).  If I come down out of them there hills, I'd be glad so shout a jug or two at Mistys. (moonshine that is) But beer is fine if M/S is too strong.

I have been around and under the hood of FSX for quite a while and have been over at (ORBX where I try to help sometimes) I had the great pleasure to help RTMM/Team - Doug (JDLinn) with his Avoss lake issue not too long ago (Orbx Forum).
I mostly have the sim stuff sorted and working nicely, but can always learn some new perspectives and viewpoints from the good people here.
I'm only just starting out with a few essentials (updates/addons/patches) for my recent purchase of TFX, have only just begun to scratch the surface on all the great stuff I have missed so I guess I'll be downloading Reading Installing testing more reading..... and flying for the next little while.
Be very glad of your assistance if I get stuck.......

Many thanks Rod & Norm, Just had a brilliant flight from Sitka to Wrangell, with short detour over Petersburg. (And your right Norm, absolutely stunning scenery). I always liked Petersburg (circa: FS9 & SIRP), now I can see that you guys have CIRP and SIRP for FSX so I'm going to try those first.

Hey there "Jetho Jeff"

These CIRP areas sure make a real fun fly in the dead of winter!! (Or sooner).. but it's nice to have lots of snow!

Might want to crack out those DHC2, C185 Ski/wheels or M7/ski/wheels and give them tuneups for winter excursions into both the CIRP and SIRP. And on the fields themselves dare to take the new updated Stalwart and soon to be released, the updated hovercraft, (both with model compatibility with P3Dv4x), for a trip into these ice fields. Doug has some very interesting CIRP FP and dispatches here on the site for the CIRP.

Start with getting all the RTMM object libraries, Med/APP Library and the BWEP Library into the sim and added as well as making sure the scenery test at PANT is perfect before adding the rest of the add-ons.

Norm
Title: Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
Post by: Jethro7 on November 15, 2017, 09:14:56 AM
Many thanks Norm, a fantastic welcome and some top notch advice.

I have the RTMM Libraries I II & III + BWEP Libs, MED/APP Libs, and am going to install the Objects Tester @ PANT, it seemed the most logical place to begin.
I have the Hovercraft & Stolly and the Ops/tracks/routes/Dispatches they look like fun. The stolly would be my vehicle of choice, so CIRP & SIRP will get another nutjob on the ice. It would be fun to see a Multiplayer event with half a dozen Stollys or hovercraft scooting around.   
I think I'll install addons which don't require the season switcher for now, just so I can get my bearings, then install those sceneries down the track.  I 'think I have enough to keep me busy for a little while.

Cheers Jeff

lol Spud!! I'm kind of a new guy on the block here too these days, well kind of or sorta new, so I'll buy the 1st round - that is as soon as the Christmas music starts playing at PF20.. Then we' can crack open the keg of  "Snog". (I have one mounted on my beaver.. and it's very ice cold from the recent temps.. so perfect).

Yes sir Spud: it was only last week that I learned that you were a navy flyer and flew corsairs, (My fav military warbird of all time), (and a few versions of it also in my sim!)

Hey Norm,
I'm old but not quite that old.  The F4U was retired in 1953 only 8 years after WWII.  My attack days were in the 'Spad' A-1 Skyraider.  Last fixed wing was the SP2H transitioned to Rotary wing and was instructor in both fixed and rotary wing.  At least I missed out on LTA (lighter than air BLIMPS).  Although last fleet location was NAS Lakeview next door to the old Hindenburg hangar. (no I wasn't at the crash!!! ::))

I have a special place in my heart for the A1.

http://www.fsfiles.org/flightsimshotsv2/image/GIbd

Here's the only picture I have of an A1-H named for my mother Nancy Lou Allen. My father, CMSGT George B. Allen Jr. was the maintenance crew chief for a squadron of A1's named the "Zorro's" who were based out of Nakhon Phanom during the Viet Nam war.

(22d Air Commando Squadron (re designated 22nd Special Operations Squadron August 1, 1968), 27 November 1967 - 30 June 1975, call sign "Zorro":(A-1E/G/H/J, Tail Code: TS)

I actually own a die-cast model of her too.

Hello!

Still I am amazed about the huge information I have here! I was looking for some kind of missions for bushflying and never found anything until this weekend looking for Bush Flying VAs in AVSIM forum someone mencioned this place.
And here I am... trying to configure everything, that is not an easy task. Really thankyou for all your effort. See you in the skies!

Hi Japo32,
Welcome to RTMM. There is a lot to see and do at RTMM. To make RTMM "work" just make sure you have all of the required ORBX, and TF base scenery installed and running first. Then download and install all of the required RTMM object libraries. Then start downloading and exploring RTMM scenery files one by one to get a feel for what RTMM is all about. There's a HUGE virtual world available here.

Hey there Japo32.. and welcome.

RTMM has a full place here of sim add-ons and enhancements but for clarity, RTMM is not a VA in the sense that I think you are referring to: This is not a VA environment as in flying/filing/submitting flight legs for approval for earning VA pilot flight hours, flying tours etc in a VA environment but it is a site that provides great custom add-ons and enhancements for those areas.

So here there are many scenery custom add-ons, enhancements as well as flight plans - and all freeware). If you want to fly bush in Alaska, BC and Yukon, these add-ons provided here indeed make your sim come alive: from custom scenery locations to so many other enhancements plus many other items to help you fly these locations such as flight plans etc on the Here to There page. (FSX/P3D).

If you are also looking for a real "Bush VA" that operates in these same areas of Alaska, BC and Yukon there are only a couple but only one VA that I know of that is totally bush and actually incorporates custom RTMM scenery add-ons into their VA systems. Partner site: Alaska Adventures VA. (I am involved with both RTMM and Alaska Adventures).  At AKA, "No tubes" - It's all bush, over 2000 flight legs, scenic tours and many of the tour incorporate RTMM scenery in a VA environment, but if you don't have the custom RTMM scenery add-ons in your sim - well you can't see or land at many of the required locations. SIMS: FSX/P3D and some X-plane users can fly some of the stuff that is not RTMM dependent. Anyways you can take a look at Alaska Adventures VA if you are looking for a bush VA that covers the same area as RTMM - http://www.flyaka.com/  (http://www.flyaka.com/).

Welcome aboard Jappo,
seems as if everyone else has already chimed in to say HI!  They have all mislead you, after getting all the good "stuff" at RTMM your required to meet the gang at Misty's Place and buy us all a beer!
At the moment lots of folks are switching to P3D (Lockheed Martin) and there are some changes being made to files etc. so keep active on site and you will be OK.
Later,
Spud

Sure that beers!
Yes but I see you are very active in P3Dv4 and that is fine! yesterday I could make my first M001H without any issue once I configured everything (that is not short to do it, but easy following the instructions)

cheers,

Javier

Hi,

I am new here (but not to simming).  I was all excited about downloading/installing the necessary files for RTMM until I read the required list of payware addon scenery needed.  Guess I will have to wait for the next Orbx sale.  Too much for me to afford right now :-[  Pete

Hey Pete ... you don't need 'em all at all. Start with Pacific Fjords PFJ ... then, (like the rest of us), when the piggy bank gets a little fuller, grab a next one.  Keep us posted. We'll be happy to help you get set up.

Doug

     Hello Pete, and welcome to RTMM, the forum.  ("Spaceballs, The Movie" reference, ;) )
     You can also start building your RTMM collection and getting it set up for when you get the first Orbx region+Tongass Fjord X (req.)  They are worthy additions to your sim.
  ( ... and also, you'll be addicted to Orbx once you get started.  Beware.)  ;)

     Again, welcome.

Hello Pete, and welcome to RTMM!!! You'll really get addicted to flying in this vast Pacific area for hours pretty soon... Just to tease you a bit more, here comes a shameless ad  ;) - grab your copy of RTMM map for Google Earth (http://forum.mistymoorings.com/index.php?topic=3457.0) and get your first impression of the area and scenery coverage to make a better choice as far as the required Orbx addon is concerned.

Good luck!!!
