Trip Tics - What they are, How to use them.
« on: January 25, 2011, 07:50:00 PM »
Trip Tics (Trip Tickets) are one of the unique features of Return to Misty Moorings.  These are basic, visual instructions for getting "from here to there." In Misty Fjords.  Also, there will be some stories, history and geography added to the text to make your flight even more enjoyable.

LSD (Low, Slow and Dangerous) ... the Trip Tics tours are mostly flown at 1200 feet (unless something taller than 1200 feet cannot be flown "around or over").  The weather ceilings in Misty Fjords are often at 1500 feet and visibility, because of rain, fog, or just moisture-laden air, makes visual sighting of waypoints and landmarks difficult at higher altitudes.  So we fly at 1200 feet so we can still find the turns we need to make ... even in (typical) poor conditions.  These routes take you "among" the fjords, not over them.  This is down and dirty flying ... and if you are good at it ... a great deal of fun.

Using the Trip Tics is relatively easy. There are two methods:
  • If you have a wide screen monitor, The first method is often preferred. You call up the trip tic online by going to the Addon Scenery location and pressing on the "Tic" icon there.  You then "size" that window the width of the Trip Tic.  Your flight simulator window is sized for the rest of your screen.  This way, you can scroll down and read while you are flying, never missing a waypoint. Your screen will look like this:

  • The second method is to click on the "Print-Able" copy on the online Trip Tic and a copy that you can print comes up. Copy it and print it. Fly using he whole screen and reading the hard copy.

If you find an error ... let us know, either here or using contact@mistymoorings.com

Enjoy

Just put up Herring Bay and High Lake Cabin.  I believe Herring Bay is the easiest one to fly of all so far, and High Lake Cabin is the most difficult (to date).  So for someone trying these for the first time, start with Herring Bay ... save High Lake for when you have your skill set "upped" a little!
