NEW REPAINT by Klaus - Nemeth Designs Aerospatiale AS350B3

This is a repaint for the Nemeth Designs Aerospatiale As350B3 payware helicopter-addon for FSX and P3d. The paint is also compatible with Nemeth Designs payware Expansion Pack for the AS350 which provides more variants. This repaint represents the fictitious Aerospatiale AS350B3 N350MM mistyASTAR of Return to Misty Moorings. (This is a very large file to download for all the variations ... a long file means a TREMENDOUS amount of time put into this by the author...thank you Klaus!) Look for it at: Enhancements / Repaints / Helicopters ... and the bottom of the table.

Updated FedEx Terminal for PAKT PAYware!

Brad has updated the FedEx Terminals package that updates the FedEx Terminal at the PAYWARE PAKT. (This update is for PAYWARE PAKT only ... if you have the ORBX original PAKT, there is no need to re-download and install).

Misty's Place / Re: Nice try
« on: April 17, 2019, 09:00:18 AM »
Karl ... hope you have "crash off" ??? :-)

Misty's is a tight little runway, I too have had fun trying different "larger" planes there. The DC3 can get out ok.  Fun to put a 747 on the Misty Runway ... I think it shows how little Misty's Place is or how Big a 747 is ... but best to switch back to the Misty Amphibian before you hit the throttle!

UPDATED: RTMM Required Library Part IV

"RTMM Required  FSXP3D Libraries Part IV 4.15.19 is now available for download. This update fixes a few minor problems that have been discovered. Please delete any previous version of the RTMM Required  FSXP3D Libraries Part IV that you may already have. I also discovered an orphaned effect file "hiding" in several of the CIRP scenery folders and have added it to the Effects\ Universal Effects folder. Copy all of the files contained in this folder to your main Effects folder and overwrite when prompted. This will insure that you have all of the necessary RTMM effect files.

Great pictures. I used your first ones and added this subject to the RTMM FAQ area under "W". So this should help other people too.

Those are from the wave swells on the water.  To keep wakes on the wave swells with no breaks ...
In Aircraft.cfg under "Contact Points" add this:
always_use_avg_surface=1

Checking out the new elevation profile with the correct cruise altitudes for Bear Observatory. Everything is working ... and here's the result. The bears were out of hibernation and going after breakfast when I arrived.

If you look in the RTMM Flight Plans.zip in the README folder, you will find a spreadsheet entitled: 4_RTMM-MFC Flight Plans Listing(date).xls.  First of all if you want to see how much work Norm has done with MFC, open that spreadsheet and look at the REAMS of data it contains. That is the spreadsheet I used for this project.

Cruising Altitudes adjust for all 700+ flight plans.

We have been paying a great deal of attention to RSA (safe altitude) and the routing of the flight plans, but one thing we neglected was the cruise altitude for the plan. Plan G and VFR Flight sort of assigned them randomly. So you could be making a 5 mile hop and the cruise altitude could be 12,000 feet!

Over the past few days, I've used Norm's spreadsheet to put in the VFR flight altitudes that he uses with MFC. All 700+ flight plans were changed to match the MFC spreadsheet. So now that same small flight will have a cruise altitude of (probably) 1500 feet.

If you are using Plan G, Little NavMap or VFR-Flight for your flight planner, you can now better see the ELEVATION profile for the flight with the new cruise altitudes. Before, most made little sense with 10,000 and 12,000 foot (and other random) cruise altitudes.

The new RTMM Flight Plans.zip (put up yesterday) has all of the new cruise altitudes in it. So if you are using this ... please delete the old flight plan set you have and put in this new one.

Below is the elevation profile for the Anon Bear Observatory flight plan.

Website Discussion / Maintenance Logs for Scenery Locations
« on: April 09, 2019, 08:56:13 AM »
Each scenery location now has its own "maintenance log." Any time a change is made on that scenery location, you will be able to see what change was made and who made the change.

To see the log, you click on the DATE for the location (Refreshed/Updated/Added). All of these are now hot linked to a location-specific maintenance log.

Literally, we are almost daily making adjustments in the locations. With many people flying RTMM, any problems hopefully are reported on the forum. We can then go after these, fix them, and now DOCUMENT them.

The logs will be cumulative ... the next "fix" will be listed right under the last one with the date and the person's name making the fix. So these, later, will look like a history for the location. This is all part of the 2019 REFRESH project that we are doing. 

All of the logs are now in place.

I most enjoy the dusk flying. Many of our locations have night lighting. Great pic of the sunset.

NEW - Maintenance reports (Modified post 04.09.2019)
Each scenery location on the Scenery Page now has its own maintenance log. When you click on the Refreshed/Added/Updated date ... it is now a hot link to the maintenance log for that location. When you are ready to download a location, you can check the log to see what has been done to the location and when it happened.  After each entry is a "...by" with a name. That is the person who made the change.

Often people flying RTMM will find something that needs to be fixed. When these show up in the forum, we go after them and fix them. Any fix like this will now be documented. Notice the example for Yes Bay Lodge below.

Dora Bay LTF - Minor Modifications Update

A missing pier was added to the commuter boat dock area. Also, Rod Jackson's whitewater effects and trailers were added to the tug boats, barges and log rafts giving them the appearance of motion.

REMEMBER: You can always click on the "Refreshed/Update" date ... I am making those links to let you know what changes were made.

Doug's Outfitters - Season Switcher Added

Doug's Outfitters is now a Season Switcher scenery location. If you have the previous version, you will want to delete it and add this new one in its place.  Don't forget, this one has the main lodge out on the river, but there is an airstrip (PF29) back at the "lakes end". There is also a beautiful "river run" if you want to go from the lodge to the airstrip. Great for the boaters among us.

I've not got it installed (1 minute!). I have successfully created groups and can activate/deactivate them. For instance, I have a group for each of the ORBX areas. Since I'm not flying S California when I'm in the RTMM area, I have that deactivated. So I have been able to deactivate SCA, CRM, NRM, NCA and my Hawaii files. When I check the P3D V4 scenery library, they are all unchecked as they should be. One click and I can turn them on/off, whole groups.

With what I don't need turned off, I thought P3D V4 would load a lot quicker ... but that's not happening. I'm bringing in all of the RTMM scenery and I'm sure that's what keeps it slow.

But I'm very impressed with the ease of turning on/off whole areas. But have to admit, so far, I don't see much difference whether they are turned on or off.

I'm only scratching the surface with what can be done with this (baby steps). I'm going to look next at the backup and restore features.  So far, I've not used the xml features, only bgl.
