AddOn Scenery / Re: Misty's Old Yacht Club conflicts w/ payware PAKT

Thanks, perhaps it is just my clunky old PC and video card...  imagine 500' cliffs supporting the runway and the airport levitated at the same altitude.  No worries as it is working for me now with the revised order. Thanks!

AddOn Scenery / Misty's Old Yacht Club conflicts w/ payware PAKT
« on: July 23, 2017, 03:06:10 PM »
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? 

I do think my settings and scenery are set properly.  Yes to these at least: mesh at 5m and using Pilot's Global 2010 mesh for FTX. 

I was just thinking it was strange I haven't seen floaters at another location and it was funny to arrive at dusk and see floating lights and buildings.  Attaching another pic showing a view of the twilight zone.  Not looking for a fix exactly, but as to highlights on the first 100 trips, this was the strange one!

Looks like the same place, but less spooky.  In my pic below hopefully you can see the lights and buildings at wrong elevation. Something wrong with my scenery?

A few highlights... and I should point out I am doing the flight plans by letter (in a random order) and thus far I have only done plans starting with the letters S, H, and M!

Halibut Cove
Hollis Harbor
Shrode Lake
Swan Lake #2 @ 57.031 -132.6942 with exit though the notch at dam
And I found this randomly... A crazy spot with floating buildings and light orbs! Klemtu @ 52° 35.48'N  128° 31.27'W


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.


Thank you gentlemen for the advice... I think I'll just go back to flying and perhaps this will disappear with a future video card upgrade!  I am on an older ATI Radeon HD 5700.  I started googling for DX10 fixer posts related to the ATI and I am not sure I want to go down this rabbit hole.

Happy flying!  Brian

Test completed. It behaves the same way in DX9, and adds a whole lot of other trouble (much poorer graphics overall)!

I am using Steve's DX10 Fixer

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

Ok, understood.  And you saw the other one has the wrong map, Swan Lake in a different area?  Brian

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

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"!
