The Moorings - On the Water / Re: Coast Guard Hovercraft

     I keep thinking that the CIRP Hovercraft went through the conversion process with the rest.  I am only a recipient of the converted model.  I guess we just never got the updated model linked into the site.  Maybe Rod and Steve can remember converting it?  Anyway, it's all good now.  (... or will be, once the fix is in)

Hmmm.. Is there any way you could send to Doug and myself for a quick test in P3Dv4.4 then post it up on the CIRP page. (The CIRP Hovercraft one that was previously posted on the CIRP (now removed) didn't work in P3Dv4x. (It was see through or invisible). Appreciated it you could send and it should be small enough that can be sent as an email attachment). Thanks in advance Jeff.

Roger, Wilco.

edit:  sent, check your email.

I have been trying to load the files into Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Add on Scenery\.....AhZx_Lib....etc. As an example.

Tom

Been so long since I used FSX, but isn't there another directory between Microsoft Flight Simulatox X and addon scenery?

     No, it is near the top of the main folder, just like that.  It has a scenery folder in it, that I think of as a "generic" scenery folder for bgls that are common to all areas.  I had my RTMM scenery folder in the Addon Scenery folder that I placed all my RTMM stuff into.   ;)

  It seems to work for me in P3dv4.3.  The windows need to be cleared, and the VC doesn't work like it use to.  But it is still usable for me, and the engine seems fine too.   :-\

     Really?  I thought we were retiring it, in favor of the Stalwart?  Also, the engine power is adjustable in the config.  We don't need a new model for that.  If the graphics have issues, that would be different.  I don't know if Hama is still out there updating his models.  ???

That was a beautiful video, Dan.  I WAS here back then.   :D

Next round is on Ilya at Misty's Place!!!!
Well, that's not gonna be soon :))) I get it that MFC is a multiplayer community here at RTMM. So I'll have to make myself comfortable with all the software needed etc. I've never flown any multiplayer flights in P3D before.

     Not to worry, Ilya.  We're not really all that "multiplayer" as you might think.  We have trouble getting together because of time zone differences.  Also, most of us are solo type of pilots, or at least I am.  The Misty's Flying Club is not multiplayer either.  You fly and record your legs, and others are doing that also.  But you never see another person in the sim.  (I don't).
     The beers at Misty's Place are virtual, and imaginary.  (and free)   Enjoy RTMM the way you want to, and interact with the community however you are comfortable.  There's no pressure.  Cheers!   :)

You just get a link to your email Robert.  Just wait until you get home and it will show in your FTX Central then do the install.

Norm

I think KPDX Portland is iBlue Yonder product...not sold by ORBX as far as i know.  So I don't think it would load through FTX Central.   Of course, I could be wrong.....my brain is frozen since I just returned to Cleveland from Southern Florida.

Rod

You're not wrong, Rod.  Also, up north we sometimes wear hats to prevent brainfreeze.    :P

If it would help I could call you.  You could send me a phone number to THibben12@outlook.com and I will call you.

Tom

No, I don't use the phone.   ???

Hi Jeff,

I was trying show that last AHZX as an example.  The file I was trying to load is AhZx_Lib SublibraryFSXP3D 1-27-15

Tom

Yes, there should be a folder inside that, with the same name, but no numbers.  That's the library. 
It should have a "scenery" folder in it.  (... like those little russian dolls, inside each other)  :P

Hi Tom,
     Those dots before "etc" bother me.  Your statement says nothing of value to me.  Is the "AhZx_Lib" the one with the dates in it, or the folder under that, which contains the scenery folder?  That is important.   ;)

     It is also crucial to have the libraries installed correctly before adding any scenery.  The scenery won't show correctly, or at all without the libraries.

     You've been here for a long time.  Why are you saying that you are just now installing the libraries?  Haven't you had them installed since the beginning? ???  (Feb. 2011)

Also found this online:

https://www.fsmissioneditor.com/product/prepar3d-mission-editor-2/

Thanks Brad.  I've just acquired a copy of it.  Playtime ...  :P

     Well, I was excited to get the program, but spent the rest of the day and night trying to get it to work.  No joy.  The program couldn't find my P3dv4 install initially, until I found settings for v4 in the "compatibility" settings for the projects.  I set that to 4 and the program started finding and reading airports and models, etc.  So I thought, Great!!  It's gonna work now.  But it doesn't finish, it crashes to desktop with no error messages at all.  It is a port over from FSX, and built by a former ACES member of MS.  The documents still refer to FSX, not P3d.  I couldn't find any more help than if I were dealing with MS.  So sad.  :'( 

     I wanted to build missions again, but it's not happening with this program (yet).  I wish it would show the error or issue it has that causes the CTD, not just disappear.
     It cost me $28 to find out the program has issues.  I should have tried it before buying the thing.  I never do.   :P

Welcome Salzman.  I guess the "Hi, I new (Introduce yourself here)" thread was getting pretty full.  It's all good.   8)

Hi Tom,
     What do you mean by, "It won't install"? ???  It's a manual process, eh.  ;)
     It should just be a scenery folder, right?  De-activate your old Misty's Place from your scenery library.   Open the downloaded Misty's Place 2019 zip, and drag/drop the folder into the place where the old Misty's Place is/was, then activate that in your scenery library.  You can delete the old Misty's Place folder.  The new one replaces it.  That's all.   :P
