I think we need an adjustment to this flight, MFC0221A 2Z1->TF20. Cigar Box says I am 87.57 miles from departure airport at start.  Thanks!  Brian

FYI I noticed one of the flights in the RTMM flight plans zip was not visible to P3D for loading.  After some troubleshooting, I determined a '&' in the DestinationName field of the PLN file was the culprit. It does not cause a problem in the filename, but rather within this specific field of the file contents.

Flight = Owikeno Casino & Resort (OCAR) from Owikeno N Strip (PF39)  -- aka MFC0445A

<DestinationName>Owikeno Casino & Resort</DestinationName>
<DestinationName>Owikeno Casino Resort</DestinationName>


I just flew the wonderfully scenic flight MFC0446A from Pacific Gateway (PF50) to Owikeno N Strip (PF39) and after stomping the brakes and praying for enough runway, alas Cigar Box tells me I have 855.56 miles to go to reach my destination! "Aircraft is not at Arrival" followed by "Aircraft Position Error"

Something to fix?


Before I realized the Misty Flying Club existed (THANK YOU!), I had been diligently flying my routes from the RTMM table and missed the announcement until I happened to glance at the home page and forums last month. Now that I have a few MFC flights under my belt, I am wondering if you have considered adding a new link in the RTMM GO TO table that would allow us to place a bid on any flight in the table and have that contribute towards our MFC hours?

Addon Scenery and Enhancements / My runway elevation is off at CZST Stewart
« on: November 04, 2018, 08:50:54 PM »
 My runway elevation appears off at CZST Stewart as my plane is "submerged." I have run the FTX Global Vector Config Tool and checked my mesh settings (5m). I do NOT have ORBX CZST installed. Is this a scenery order issue or does it require some other adjustment file for this airport?  Brian

Anyone else see a hump in the middle of runway at Haines Junction CYHT? Took my first flight there today and it looks like we need some flattening.


Prepar3D-Version 4 / Prepar3D v4 wake for Milviz Beaver
« on: September 18, 2018, 09:44:50 PM »
I made the move this past week to a new PC and switched from FSX to P3D.  I must say how relieved I am that all the lessons learned tweaking and configuring the platform carry over to P3D and that RTMM is alive and well!

Literally the only issue I am having at the moment is the complete absence of a wake behind the Milviz Beaver.  Is there something simple I need to adjust?


Addon Scenery and Enhancements / Whitehorse CYXY airport scenery issue
« on: November 26, 2017, 07:31:19 PM »
I have a strange problem at Whitehorse CYXY.  I have not flown out of this airport before so not sure where/when the problem was introduced, but as you can see in the picture, the airport is really messed up. My scenery order has not changed recently besides the periodic additions of RTMM files at top (none of which I know of that impact this airport).  I have ORBX scenery installed and updated.  Any ideas?


I recently added Misty's Old Yacht Club scenery and then noticed in a subsequent flight from PAKT (ORBX payware) that the airport scenery was all messed up.  Disabling Misty's Old Yacht Club fixed the problem.  So I lowered it in priority to a point below PAKT  (ORBX's FTX_AA_PAKT) and both scenery areas worked.

That a known issue or something that should be noted on scenery description for the Old Yacht Club? 

Just completed my 100th flight from the RTMM flight plans library.  It just happened to be a flight finishing at Misty's Place -- in the mist with real world WX too.

Thanks for creating all the interesting stops for my first 7 months on the site! I have visited 85 RTMM sites plus 83 USFS cabins so far.

I celebrated with a repaint and a new interior. The look matches the age of my computer.


I am hoping this might be a simple DX10 adjustment, but I notice that my custom scenery locations, even USFS cabins, seem to have black and white flashes from a distance.  When I get closer to the location it disappears.  It is not the big looming black boxes issue.  This image shows Ketchikan area from a distance and it is like black and white twinkles on the coast line.  Any fix suggestions? Thanks!  Brian

From Here to There - Missions, Trip Tics and VA / Swan Lake(s) adjustments
« on: February 28, 2017, 07:27:05 PM »
Working my way through all the "S" flight plans and can update the following:

West Swan Lake Cabin from Quartz Creek
* The flight plan goes to USFS Swan Lake Cabin (other side of the lake from W. Swan Lake Cabin)
* Map shows West Swan Lake Cabin (matching title in GO TO table)
* Need a flight plan associated with W. Swan Lake cabin (can I submit one for consideration? what's involved?)

Swan Lake from Petersburg
* Has wrong map associated with the flight plan in the GO TO table, FP is fine, just needs a map


Screenshots / I am hooked! Swan Lake Exit
« on: February 28, 2017, 12:04:48 AM »
I have only been flying with you a couple months but I am now officially hooked.  I just finished my 50th flight plan and I've logged 48 USFS cabins and about 40 other RTMM attractions.  It's fun following the flights in Google Earth and the complete inventory of objects in there is much appreciated.  It ALL is. 

So my screenshot... This entrance and exit to the Swan Lake Cabin near Cascade Creek Hydro was a thrill.


The Strawberry Ch Shipwreck entry in Go To table should note we need Prince William Sound scenery to see the shipwreck. Thanks!  Brian

I noticed the Situk Lake flight plan takes you instead to Situk A68 (location of Situk Eagle Cabin & Situk Raven Cabin) but not to the location of the lake or the Situk Lake Cabin which is about 6 NM further away. Thinking the description and flight plan both need updating.  Again, hope this info is helpful.  As you can see, I'm working my way thru all the flights that start with letter "S"!
