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

In case you haven't noticed yet, the Google KMZ map has been updated. The good news is you don't need to re-download the updated file anymore, as the updates will fly into your computer automatically with each RTMM / KMZ update - just launch the file (see links below) in Google Earth any time you wish to fly in the RTMM area and you'll get the map updated instantly offering you even more locations to visit... :)

As always, you can find the updated file HERE.

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!  ;)
