Google KMZ update
« on: May 31, 2017, 03:15:57 PM »

Thank you! Just out of curiosity, about how often does it get updated?

Well, it depends... I usually check against the NOTAM page to see how many new items are in the 'pool'. Before I used to update the KMZ with every new RTMM release but... I had to bother Doug with every update too since he is my 'contact person' when it comes to public release. Plus my real life duties... So, now I basically wait until at least 5-6 new addons are available and then update the file.

Hope it helps! ;)

No problem, Tom! You don't need to install the KMZ file. Instead download and install Google Earth and open KMZ with it. That's it!

I've also included a readme PDF file with instructions on how to use the map and select individual RTMM locations depending on where you want to Return at Misty Moorings... (pun intended) ;)

Hope it helps!

Apparently my file host ceased operation for unknown reasons. So, please download the updated map from a new location until the problem is resolved. I'll keep you updated.

Thanks and sorry for inconvenience, if any!

The problem could have been on "our" end at RTMM. Give it a try from our site now too. Let us know if it works for you.

Hi,
I take KMZ file http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#kmz (Updated 07.12.2017) but my looks like this:




Google Earth
7.1.8.3036 (32-bit)
Something is wrong with this file (no tree in folder)? No problems with FTX kmz as You see.

     Yep, I agree.  It seems empty, except for a doc.kml.  The file is called RTMM4GE.kmz, and is accompanied by a changelog.txt and readme.pdf.  Clicking on the RTMM4GE.kmz file goes down a level, showing only a doc.kml file.  Clicking on that file opens GE, but no information is shown.  The Return to Misty Moorings line in my "Temporary Places" has nothing under it.   ;)

There is a problem with my file host... again. Please re-download the zip file from the original post until Doug updates the H2T link with the new file.

Sorry for inconvenience!  ;)
