I believe we need to update the arrival location for Green Island Cabin. After arrival for flight MFC0231A it says I still have 516 miles to go.  Thanks!  Brian

I think the documentation for MFC0005 Barnstormers needs to have Tezwa River Ranch (PF37) added to the download list.  Brian

Misty Flying Club and Multi Player / Ham Island Marinia & Helipad
« on: December 30, 2018, 02:56:39 PM »
While flying the "2018 A Very Misty Christmas tour" (Tour MFC0025C) I noticed a significant marina and helipad on Ham Island just beyond Triangle Lake Hydro. It doesn't appear on my charts, Google Earth, or in our Google Earth KMZ. Is this Misty's Area 51? A yacht I can sail there? Did I miss a NOTAM? 55°11'33.35"N 131°23'7.44"W   55.192597° -131.385399°

At any rate, thanks for the present!


Prepar3D-Version 4 / CTD with MilViz DHC-2 Beaver in P3Dv4.4
« on: December 30, 2018, 01:58:46 PM »
The P3D 4.4 client update seems to cause a problem for MilViz aircraft that have the weather radar panel.  See:

I changed the entries in dll.xml and panel.cfg (in the folder and area for the specific model I fly) as suggested by this link on the MilViz forum and that seems to get around the problem.

If anyone needs more specific details on the fix, let me know.


Misty's Place / Thanks for making this a great place to hang out in 2018!

Here's my top-10 list of what I am thankful for in this hobby for 2018!

  • The RTMM community for all its dedication, creativity and support!
  • The launch of the Misty Flying Club
  • P3D - Why was I waiting? Oh yeah, a new computer. Thanks FSX for all the great years...
  • Linking the RTMM GO TO Table to MFC flight numbers!
  • All things ORBX
  • ActiveSky
  • ChasePlane - Amazing camera control inside and outside cockpit
  • TerraFlora
  • MilViz DHC-2 Beaver and Thomas Roehl's Cessna U206G Soloy MK1
  • Ultimate Traffic Live

Please chime in with your additions!

Happy New Year,

Help and Troubleshooting / Stopping the Cessna U206G Soloy MK1 on water?
« on: December 25, 2018, 11:11:20 AM »
I am having difficulty stopping the Cessna U206G Soloy MK1 on water (current Thomas Roehl version). Only thing that seems to work is killing the engine completely.  On the DHC2 I coast to a stop no problem but can keep engine running. Ideas? Brian

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?
