General Discussion / AI Sounds silenced!
« on: September 03, 2011, 05:59:42 PM »
All my AI external sounds have been silenced, even the airport vehicles (which may be a benefit as they are very noisy, or were) but none of the ai air traffic makes any sound, I cannot think of what may have caused it, any ideas out there?

Help and Troubleshooting / 2776 repeating
« on: March 03, 2011, 11:43:28 AM »
The AI traffic had a lot of planes with the same flight number, 2776, this led to the bizarre occurence of the same call over the radio at several locations at the same time, I did think I had fixed it, but to my consternation it continued.
However, I have now found the reason and have re-edited the file again, I will test it over the next couple of days (or whatever) and if it's good I will get Doug to update the file again, soon all the AI will identify by a unique tail number rather than a flight number.  Watch this space (you know, in case you get bored or something)

Hi Dan, the download links in the scenery section have all shuffled off their mortal coil.

Screenshots / Beaver Repaint at Eagle Lake.
« on: February 07, 2011, 01:33:08 PM »
I can't claim much credit for this repaint as much of it is already part of the paint kit, The scratched paintwork, colours and numbers are mine, the design, the overall degraded look on the pale areas are in the paint kit already (which is great as it saved me a load of time!) I have not been able yet to reduce the gloss despite losing the alpha channel. (Thanks for the tip Chris, but alas it didn't have the desired effect) :)

Still, it's what I wanted, an old workhorse that trudges around The Misty Fjords.

Help and Troubleshooting / Install Problems
« on: January 31, 2011, 04:50:23 AM »
All the scenery we have made is very straightforward stuff, it doesn't interfere in anyway with existing scenery apart from the general landscape at the places with strips which will have a small area flattened for the runway etc.
So, if you see weird things happening to Ketchikan or PANT or wherever you happen to be, you can be sure that the problem is not being caused by any MM scenery, but more often than not by the structure of the scenery library.
There are two options for dealing with this, the best one is to read the FTX instructions on how to do that, there is also a useful sticky thread on the FTX forum illustrating the process

Click Here

Alternatively you can use a manual method.
Shut down FSX
Open the FTX central
Click the apply default FSX button
Click apply
Click the North America FTX button
Click Apply

Start FSX
Go to settings then the scenery library
All the FTX stuff will be at the top of the list
Move the EZ library to the top
Move the scenery folder you put you RTMM files in to the top of the list

If you have other scenery files running in this region that are in a similar vein to the MM sceneries, they too will need to be moved up.

If you have payware terrain of mesh in this area you will need it to be below all the FTX stuff, check the FTX forums for compatibility issues.

Close the library.

FSX will rebuild the scenery database to reflect the changes.


Start FSX and check that your scenery looks as it should.

Acceleration v SP2


For those who do not have acceleration but only SP2 you may find that certain objects do not display correctly such as the posts on some piers and some vehicles do not show up, we are not sure why this is, but it is likely that they are a part of the acceleration pack only, this was noted during beta testing of some files.

If you wish to upgrade to Acceleration be sure to remove the SP2 pack first.


This thread may be updated as better information becomes available.

Help and Troubleshooting / Nisga'as Glacial Lake
« on: January 30, 2011, 06:01:31 PM »
A potential problem exists with the current file set, in which you may crash if you use a twin like a twotter or any wide wingspan plane, this has been addressed but the file is yet to be updated, so i9f you fly into Nisga'a with a twotter, set your crash detection to off for now.
