Re: The RTMM "GoTo" Interactive Table

The main use for me right now has been the ability to quickly figure out where the different flights are geographically.  I know where the main "big cities" are in relation to each other (Ketchikan, Juneau, Prince Rupert, etc) but would have no idea where a flight to Ashluhm Fish Lodge from Rivers End SPB would take place.  I could "bounce around" between looking at different maps, like using the KMZ file in Google Earth or the map on the Here2There page for a location, but the GoTo now makes it easy to figure out where the different locations are.

There does appear to be a little inconsistency yet for some locations.  For instance, the "Ashluhm Fish Lodge".  There are two "Ashluhm" flight plans in the RTMM Flight Plans download.  One called "Ashluhm Fish Lodge" and the other "Ashluhm Creek Ldge".  On the Here2There page, there is an "Ashluhm Creek Fishing Lodge" listed as being in PFJ.  On the GoTo page, the "Ashluhm Crk Fishing Ldg" is in PNW. 

So...I'm forced to draw the following (tongue-in-cheek !!!) conclusions:

There's either 1 or 2 Ashluhm lodges, in one or two different locations, one with fish and one without fish.  If two, then one with fishing and one without (except for the 3rd one on the Here2There page that magically has both), with one lodge in PFJ and one in PNW (or both the Twilight Zone).  If there's only 1 lodge, then it must have a fishing and non-fishing season, and the lodge moves between PFJ and PNW on a seasonal fishing basis, and changes it's name according to whether it has fish or not at the time.    ;D ;D ;D

(The above isn't a life changing thing.  Just the kind of "Oops!" stuff that could be spread around the site that would be confusing for new RTMM users).   ;)

It is the same lodge, I fixed it in the RTMM FLight Plans and on the table.

The best way to know where things are are to download the kmz maps that Rustam has given us ....

That is an AMAZING tool. If you get Google Earth and put these kmz files in, you'll have everything you need to know about WHERE the RTMM locations are.

Sorry I just now saw this post, I'm 120 days past due answering it.  Thank you for the response.
Basically, the Here2There page gives folks a place to browse about getting ideas on where to fly to, so you'll find the dispatches there, etc.  Also there is a "starting" table.  You can look up any RTMM scenery and using those lat/long coordinates, you'll find yourself right at the location.

The autoroutes, on the Here2There are basically just flight plans to most of the locations. When I check them, I usually make a flight plan, so these are there just to share with you if you want them.

The GoTo table's mission is to help people pick and choose scenery locations they might want to download. Having them "grouped" (red) you can see that you can pull down MANY locations with just one download (Missing Cabins, for instance). Also, the map feature there lets you take a look at the flight to see if that is one you'd like to fly.  If you pick it, if you have downloaded the autoroutes, the route will be there waiting for you when you load a scenario.

If you are interested in CIRP, you can search for CIRP and anything associated with that group of locations comes up. The same for BWEP, it is now up to date. So you can see which locations are related to which pipeline segment.  If you have "The Interior" ... you can search for "interior" and up come the associated scenery locations for that pipeline segment.

The "from" column is for folks that want to pick places to fly to from a certain location. Lets say you want to fly out of Misty's Place.  You search Misty's Place ... all of the locations and routes that apply to Misty's Place show up. 

Hope this helps ... so sorry for the delay in answering, I simply didn't see the post.
