Addon Scenery and Enhancements / Re: Refreshed Bettles
« on: March 20, 2019, 12:28:45 PM »
When adding or removing scenery, (or when changing/updating GPU drivers), in P3Dv4x best to delete the shader cache folder located in hidden folder:

(C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Shaders)

and as well as the sceneryindexes_x64 folder: located in hidden folder:

C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\SceneryIndexes_x64


P3Dv4x will rebuild/configure/optimize new folders for each and shader files as well as new sceneryindexesx64 for your installed scenery and set up upon restart.

Like you don't have to do anything more for MFC0011 but will later as we progress.

Tis a good time to update since the majority of the scenery pieces are now V2.0+. Most of which have been updated with seasonal files so the surrounding foliage etc match the seasons. (Required the season switcher).  Speaking of seasons today we are turning "SPRING". 

Like you don't have to do it that way: Like we won't be hitting the BWEP excursion or a full CIRP tour or exploring all the Cabins in the "Cabins by the Lakes I and II" tours until mid-2020. But we touch base on these periodically but still need the scenery installed to fly many of the other RTMM FP /or MFC single schedules.

(Doug has been putting the FP # under the scenery pieces so if one is flying that flight, they need that scenery to see it - great reference- just like MFC scenery required for a tour but if all the scenery is in and set up there is nothing you can't fly and will never miss a thing).

Ok: Perhaps for everyone's benefit, MFC tour wise, and a snapshot of my tour folders (appended) gives all some idea of where were are going. Again all the scenery pieces will eventually be covered. Currently am working/designing excursions that are 25 tours ahead of your current location. (Working on tour 36 - time frame Nov/Dec 2019). Still lots of miles to cover and lots to see going into 2020.

This condensed snapshot of the tours past/present might help for a better overview.

MFC0010 RTMMs The Lost Treasure of Timuquan Completed

Loved this one!

You found the lost treasure lol and the award for MFC0010 RTMMs The Lost Treasure of Timuquan has been added to your pilot's profile:

Now going forward: if you have kept all the scenery in from Tour 1 through 10 you don't need any more to run Tour MFC0011.
(See other post> http://forum.mistymoorings.com/index.php?topic=4364.msg37718#msg37718)

(But there is more scenery pieces added for tour MFC0012 etc... and so on and we continue this journey)

Norm

Well all to say that if you kept scenery from MFC0001 through MFC0011 in your sim set up then you're set for MFC0011. (Nothing new in this one required). (We are just visiting more sub-locations that are in the current pieces.

MFC0019
No more required except all previous (MFC0001 through MFC0018)

MFC0020
BWEP: If you haven’t done it yet – we are closing in on segments of the BWEP so recommend adding all the BWEP additions now: From the library to the completed segments as well as the add-on outlier locations. We will cross the pipeline and visit some BWEP outlying areas on this trip.
Cabins by the Lakes (I)
Cabins by the Lakes (II)
Circle City Lodge at PACR – A BWEP Addon Location for "The Interior"
Flying Beaver Lodge (BWEP Dalton Highway Outlier)
Frances Lake Lodge
Lynn Canal and Chilkoot Inlet
SAK - Sea Plane Bases V2.1
Skagway for RTMM and SAK - (Floating Houses Fix)
Spoiler’s Lodge at Rampart (BWEP Interior Outlier)
Wandering Lake Lodge - (BWEP Interior Outlier)
Yukon Crossing - (BWEP Dalton Highway Segment)
and so forth.

And still much more to come. Although I try to map out all the scenery required for each tour, or in this case with MFC0011, if one has all the scenery from MFC0001 through MFC0010 then they have MFC0011).

But going forward, it is definitely easier to add all of the rtmm scenery pieces and set them up once at one time rather than piece meal for each tour. I have DL all of it and have set it up. Having all in and setup sure helps as there is no worry about a piece being missed for a tour. It takes a bit to get done but not hard to do really and as we go forward on these continuous excursions every piece will eventually be covered in this rtmm world tour of sorts.

Hope this helps understanding.

Hmmm. Ok Brad, No other reports but we'll have to watch this. It could be glitches with the server provider.

MFC0019.. Ok Jim.. well, can't delete a leg off off a tour exactly but since since you only had that one done, just reset or deleted your old record off the tour. Now you have a clean slate again for tour 19 but you'll have to join/sign-up on that tour with opportunity to select aircraft.

lmao always!

Like I set mine up as World ALT (with the standard sub folders "scenery" and "texture" folder just for consistency. (But if you're using xml to set it up then you really dont need a subfolder).
But the odd time you might get a texture file.

For these ALT files and (IF Texture), you have to force these to the bottom of the scenery lib so add it in as part of your xml:

IE:
-<AddOn.Component>
<Category>Scenery</Category>
<Path>Q:\Addons\Addon Scenery\World ALT\scenery</Path>
<Name>World ALT</Name>
<Layer>3</Layer>
</AddOn.Component>

-<AddOn.Component>
<Category>Texture</Category>
<Path>Q:\Addons\Addon Scenery\World ALT\texture</Path>
<Type>WORLD</Type>
</AddOn.Component>

Then after enabled and you view the sim scenery library order you'll see the scenery at layer3 at the bottom (with everything else on top instead of it sitting on top like a regular scenery add-on.

Now if you add scenery via the old/conventional way (IE: scenery.cfg or direct in your sim scenery, you can also add this world ALT\scenery folder and simply move that scenery file down to the bottom just above Default Scenery - DONE.

(You'll notice my paths above in these xml entries. (no add-on scenery is in my sim root folders (Except the ORBX except the "Global textures"  - but I hear that Orbx is trying to figure out a way to use xml and keep their required global texture files/folder outside the root sim texture folder). All fun and games.

11
Give the newer file a quick name change:

From Traffic_MM_FSX_floatplanes.bgl

to

Traffic_MM_FSX_floatplanes-2.bgl

so the files don't overwrite each other but each should still work independently since they are for different AI areas.

After you get the AI in, make sure you update the P3Dv4 RED fixes: for Tongass as well as some RTMM models - in Step Table 9 and 10 of the P3Dv4 page.  (Theses are critical for use in P3Dv4x.). (I have CTD many times since I got the FSX Models in the AI simobjects).

Link: http://return.mistymoorings.com/getting_started/index.php#9


2nd part: ADEX files.  (Many set it up totally different when referencing ADEX files: Either ADE* non ALT
and/or ADEX ALT or just ALT files)

Most can go in with the scenery, BUT not if ALT files (I have found). Others may have a totally different option but the way I have set up my sim scenery (if it means anything..lol) is that  Any ADE* files that have "ALT" (or any ALT files) have to go below the add-on scenerys.

Like really the ALT files should be down layer 1 (equivalent to the same layer as scenery-world-scenery as it sets the elevation/terrain), (That's where I have all my ALT files set up).

(At least put the ALT files below the any AFCad files and also below any add-on scenerys with ADEX but non-ALT ADEX files.).  Make sense? Or totally confused?.   

(Different opinions on this stuff, but ALT down in layer 1 works in my system ok). 
 
Hope this helps.. (clear as mud?).

« on: March 14, 2019, 02:09:19 PM »
Beecher Pass USFS Cabin is from the RTMM Missing Cabins scenery piece.  But hmmm, some smoke but that's it.!! Reinstall the RTMM Missing Cabins scenery piece first.. but have you updated Part IV of the Libs?.

Make sure you have installed the Part IV lib updates (which also includes updates to the previous libs). You need this to see the objects.

Now this cabin is in the Wrangell area. Make sure you have the P3Dv4.4 AI traffic fixes in that are required as shown in P3Dv4 > Step Table 9 and Step Table 10:

Page link: http://return.mistymoorings.com/getting_started/index.php#9


So 3 things to do
1. Reinstall RTMM Missing Cabins
2. Make sure you have installed Libs Part IV (Which includes updates for the previous RTMM Libs)
3. Put in the AI Traffic fixes for P3Dv.4.4. (I think I did these for you already but re-check to make sure.
