RTMM AI Shipping Project - Ready to Download

Return to Misty Moorings (RTMM) is proud to bring you the Tongass Fjords AI Shipping Project, (TFAISP). This is our first of what will be several extensive AI shipping enhancement projects for the areas of coverage we do. Conceived by Brad Allen but made possible by the combined talents of Dexter Thomas and "JJ", TFAISP will add many ships to the already active Tongass Fjords Region.

You'll see custom ships that "JJ" repainted and used for this project as well as default FSX and other models. Dex has put together many new traffic routes (tracks) that will populate the larger bodies of water throughout the area. With this enhancement, you will see numbers of cruise ships, various cargo, container and other commercial shipping vessels bringing tourists and goods to the area.

This is one of our "mega" projects that took a great deal of time on the part of Dex and JJ, let alone all the time Rod spent making you an "automatic" installer ... and of course, hours of beta testing. We hope you enjoy this new addition.

You can go to the new AI Shipping Projects Page:

This looks like a great enhancement.

FYI I could only get the installer to work after I went into the exe Properties and set the compatibility to Win7, and ticked the "run as administrator".

Hi Bryan,

That is good info for those not using Windows 7.   I think all of our testers had Windows 7.  It was also tested with Vista.  What operating system are you using?  What kind of error did it give you?

My apologies....I should have noted that I am using Win7....

When I clicked on the "exe" file it would started the cmd interface.  And then when I pressed 1 or 2 to attempt the install as instructed, the screen would "flash" and nothing, it would just disappear.  I tried the install four times, twice each pressing 1 and then 2. 

So my first thought after this experience was to check the properties as I have seen this sort of thing happen before with other installers.  Once the properties were set as I mentioned, presto, the cmd interface appeared, I selected 1 and the install continued as it should.

Hi Bryan,

Thats interesting that all of the other Windows 7 installations in our testing didn't have that problem.  Must be something different about yours.    When I right click on the installer properties, it doesn't even give me Windows 7 as a choice for compatability.   Anyway, it's good to know the answer should someone else experience what you experienced.

Thanks for sharing that.

These informations about new created ai-shipping read very interesting and exciting.

My questions:
- Does this published package (and following ones) work with all ai-traffic that we have installed with all former RTMM files of this kind up to now?
- Is there any deinstallation necessary?
- This is an exe-installer. Where/what folders will the corresponding files be written?

Thanks to the team involved in this project! It sounds great and I look forward to downloading and installing it tonight.

May I, in addition to Dieters questions, raise another question:

What traffic settings are required to see the ships? Are the FSX-AI-traffic-settings of any interest to this AI-pack?

Best regards, Till

All plan files are set at 10%.  These are big ships and in open waters.  There should be no conflicts.

Hi Dieter,

This package is compatible with all other RTMM AI-Traffic packages, there is no de-installation necessary.

If you want to see where the files will be written you can choose Manual Installation and install to the termporary folder of your choice....that temp folder will then be populated with the folders and files for installation and will also contain a set of instructions on where to install their contents.  It is possible that you will already have one or more of the folders or files already installed from previous RTMM installations but an overwrite of the same named files in those folders is perfectly ok.

To answer your question directly:  the installer installs files into FSX\SimObjects\Boats,  FSX\Scenery\World\Scenery and FSX\Effects.  It will overwrite files of the same name that are located in folders with the same name which is perfectly OK.   The installer does not do any deleting of folders or files.

I just installed this package and no problem occurred. The ships are sailing their rounds and even the skippers waved at me during my flyby with the Beaver ! Thanks for this great enhancement.

Yes, thanks for this information.
While testing with win7 I did get the installer starting with right mouse click and run as administrator. I did run the installer three or four times and it always worked perfect to me.

Great stuff guys  ;D Thanks a million for making this package. Did a manual install and copied the files over to FSX and to P3D. Works just great. Just needed to fix the usual wake problem in P3D.

Have tried all the tips re Windows 7 to get the installer to work but no joy.
Get this message in the command box;
"ECHO is off.
does not contain fsx.exe.   Please chooose a different directory or or close the installer window to exit.
Press any key to continue"
NOTE -- Spelling of choose with 3 letters o and 2 or entries are exactly what I get.
Pressing any key after this message does nothing and I have to X out.
Don't know what the "ECHO is off" means.
Could use some help here.
Thanks.
