Prepar3D-Version 4 / Re: Yes Bay and Taku Lodges smoke

Not to worry.  It is not you. I'm noticing the same at several sites ... Misty's Place is one. So we may have a smoke issue with P3D-V4.

Made it back. Most of the stations were out of gas in the Atlanta area where we stayed. Played it safe and came back through Augusta, plenty of gas, only a few "Florida" plates passing me.  The only good thing about this hurricane was I found out a good way to "wait it out!" (see pic)

That was a good hot dog!

Go Braves ...

From Atlanta...TV news saying stay inside off the streets with a woman standing the rain in a blue jacket...duh, good idea, it's a rainy day. I worry about the news MAKING the news.

Have a home streaming cam (for my dog) I left it pointed at my weather station. I watched it during the "event." So in SC at home I had a 26 mph gust and 12 mph ave windspeed, got 9.2 inches of rain. So no big deal there. High tide is about 5:30 pm, so the storm surge has some worried. We are at 12 feet elevation, about 16 miles from the coast, but only 3 miles from the May River.

Here near Atlanta, it is gusty and rainy, but nothing to worry about yet. We don't expect much here.

 Can't, the highways are "reversed" all one way out. :)

So we drove 5 hours to Dan's to get away from the hurricane...hit the link, that's where it will be next Tuesday!


Woodstock right now is right under the predicted eye on the screenshot.

Glad I "evacuated away from ground zero."  :-\. (Frying pan to fire?)

Sitting here in Atlanta watching the track change from "my house" where I was to "Atlanta" where I came to avoid the darned thing!  I think it is following me!  :-\

Thanks for the good wishes, all.  So many of our friends that live here in our community are just not paying much attention to this one. I'm the only one, so far, that has put up the hurricane shutters in our neighborhood.  Even tho that cone is now pointing directly at us, with a chance to go back out over water and get "charged up" ... always a good chance it will miss. But with this kind of a prediction, I don't see why my neighbors aren't a little more concerned.

Oh well (Go Braves!) Attached is the 5pm EST predicted route.

Well, "things" are pointing in our direction again.  Putting up the hurricane shutters this afternoon, car is packed. Plenty of snacks and water for the car.  And about 6 in the morning, we're on our way to Dan's House north of Atlanta.

We had planned to take this little vacation anyway, sans hurricane shutters! Dan and I are going to an Atlanta Braves game Friday night. Should be a great time. 

Bottom line .. I'll be away for a while ... in touch on email, but won't be able to make any changes on the web page.

C' ya.


Prepar3D-Version 4 / Re: Global Vector
« on: September 05, 2017, 11:16:48 AM »
Kind of aggravating.  The shortcut was put there by the ORBX installation of the previous FTX Central.  I've used that shortcut a hundred times ... getting BEWP and HAWAII "disabled", etc. So it was a "go to" for the Configuration Tool. Airport of of whack? Hit the Vector Config shortcut and fix it. Automatic.  I had never used the shortcut inside FTX Central, frankly didn't even know it was there.  So when I re-installed the new FTX-Central, I figured they put the shortcut icon back for it like it was before. So when I went to change Vector this time, I went to the shortcut as I have since FTX Central came out.  They should not have installed a shortcut for it in the previous issue, that would have made people go "inside" for the link. Oh well, its done and its fixed.

Yep, that's what happened to me. And I was using P3D V3.  So that icon it put there was pointing at V3. Since it put the icon there last time, I assumed this was a new icon with the new install. And whe PNW I clicked in it, off to V3 I went. Should have killed the shortcuts. Easy mistake to make as one is coming over from V3 to V4. Got to remember to kill that V3 shortcut, V4 isn't making a new one.

I don't remember putting it there, I thought this came with an earlier installation of FTX Central. Anyway, that was the problem. Nick asked me to go to the actual folder where it was and try to start it ... it worked ... and that's when I realized the shortcut was pointing to the wrong place.

Works now.

So only IS3 (if they ever get around to a 64 bit program base) and VFR-Flight and it will be working as before, only better.

OK, Problem solved!  When the new vector was put in, it did not make a NEW icon for the Configuration Tool. So on my desktop, the OLD shortcut icon was there from them, and it was pointing to my P3D V3 version. The new installation did not make a new shortcut icon. So I took out the old icon, and put in a new one that points to the V4 version of Vector.

Whew ... so simple.

That's a pretty amazing video ... some are markedly improved. Well, something else to "save" for, huh? Thanks Rod and Dex!
