Explain what you mean by it's "visible in the main directory." What "main directory" are you referring to? After you put it into your Addon Scenery are you activating it in the scenery library and pointing to the proper scenery folder?

Don't get it Tom.. The scenery downloads are zip files.  Like it is a matter of 1. Unzip the zip to a temp folder.  2. Place the extracted folders/files: IE: the Add-on Scenery folder, Effects/Sound folders/files (if any), place any scenery-world-scenery files/(where applicable), then set up the add-on scenery folder in your scenery libs. (then make sure the scenery position/insertion points are set up - Done. 

There is the procedural tricky FSX scenery lib issue where you have to click on empty space to get the add-on piece added or you could just get around it by direct edit of the scenery.cfg

Ok, do you have the RTMM Libs in?, ORBX?, Tongass?  Like how are you trying to do it? 

I have a busy week but if need be, can help you set this stuff up via teamviewer (remote access). Just let me know if you are open to this if you're totally stuck and can try to arrange a time. (which might be a bit difficult to set up since it appears by your location you are on Pacific time whereas I am on Eastern but we can try. (Just email me).

Norm, thanks for your offer of help.

In answer to your questions, I have 5 RTMM files and 5 others such as RWY12LibraryFSXP3D.  I also have ORBX and Tongass.  I have no problem with Orbx scenery.  I have scenery files showing up in the Scenery Config but when I fly they are not visible.

I have a high end system.  FSX is on its own drive with lots of unused available space.

Once again, thanks for your offer of help.

Tom,
In reading your last post I'm wondering if you have of the RTMM object libraries installed. You say that you have "5 RTMM files and 5 others such as RWY12LibraryFSXP3D." RWY12LibraryFSXP3D is just one component  of the RTMM libraries. There are 4 object libraries that you MUST have in order to use RTMM scenery, and each library, Part 1 - Part IV, must be activated in the scenery library within your sim. The Part I library also has several libraries within it that also have to be installed and activated.There are more than just "5 others" in total. Reefer to the object library page, read the instructions, and get ALL 4 libraries, Part I - Part IV. http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/object_libraries_build/. Am I wrong with this assumption?

Ok Tom.. that RTMM LIB Part 1.
There is 3 other Object Libs parts (2-3-4)
and the BWEP-Med Lib
then the APP Lib.

Then you have to set the correct FTX Insertion points in FTX Central 3: (Settings)
(FTX entries should be inserted below all the RTMM Object Libraries (then the other RTMM libs sit on top of that then the rest of RTMM add-on scenery pieces sit above all the RTMM Lib folders.)

(OpenLC entries should be inserted below Tongass (lower) so that Tongass gets positioned correctly (which is between FTX and OpenLC).

And it should work just fine if you correctly set up the RTMM libs.

Ok Tom, your nickel. What have you got going on there?  (A quick play by play on how you are trying to set it up would be helpful?)

Get all the RTMM Libs in, Set the FTX insertion points in ORBX FTX Central v3, add the RTMM scenery tester on top (above the RTMM libs) and go to PANT and compare the objects that should be seen at PANT with your results before you do anything else.

Top down your scenery order should look something like this:

RTMM Addons (Above RTMM libs)
RTMM Libs  (top block-Has to be above ALL FTX-ORBX)
-------------------------------------------------
FTX
TONGASS Higher
TONGASS Lower
OpenLC
(mesh block)
FTX Vector  (5 entries)
Numbered Default Scenery
FTX Vector  (AEC entry)
Default Scenery
Default Terrain

Hope this helps?

In addition to what Norm posted.

You say you have RTMM Medical Facilities, but don't see the RTMM Medical and APP Libraries FSXP3D 1-6-17 on your list.

Do you have all of the required ORBX regions installed (SAK, PNW, etc?)

Just to double check, are you positive that you have all of the required object libraries downloaded and properly installed as listed on the the object library page? Are they all checked in your sim's library?

You also didn't answer my previous question:

"Explain what you mean by it's "visible in the main directory." What "main directory" are you referring to? After you put it into your Addon Scenery are you activating it in the scenery library and pointing to the proper scenery folder?"

I've attached a screenshot of my RTMM object libraries as I have them in my scenery.cfg file. I use Scenery Config Editor to organize my scenery library.

Thanks Steve,

What you are indicating is a total of 10 items for all of Misty basic installation.  #1 being just a title.
Is that all that is necessary?

No, #1 is not a title, per se. It points to the main Addon Scenery\scenery folder in my FSX root directory where I keep some miscellaneous files. If you have nothing placed in there, then you don't need it.

Hi Norm,

I am still working on it.  I have all of the scenery objects installed except for #10 the RTMM Medical Facilities Temp Library.  Misty's Place is in and looks good but that is as far as I can get.

I will try and work on it a little today.

When you have all of the object libraries installed, be absolutely sure to use the Scenery Tester to make sure everything displays as it should!

Ok will try go go through the how-to:
RTMM Scenery Item: #10, as you can see, is that Orange Smoke effect which comes from the lib file:

RTMM Medical and APP Libraries FSXP3D_02.20.2017.zip
(Direct Link from the Libs page: http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/object_libraries_build/Active%20Library%20Zips/RTMM%20Medical%20and%20APP%20Libraries%20FSXP3D_02.20.2017.zip)

When this zip is extracted- it has the Orange smoke effect (file is: fx_OrangeSmoke.fx) which has to be placed in your effects folder. (The scenery(/texture) part of the Medical-APP Lib should be sequenced right above your RTMM libs Parts 1-2-3-4 in your sim scenery library. 

Remember the FTX Central V3 insertion points to set- as this sets the scenery blocks in your sim scenery library. (You can change stuff around within the blocks but the FTX and OpenLC blocks stay where they are set by the FTX Central V3 insertion points).

Try to get this set up before adding any more add-on scenery. This is the base that all other stuff is built.
So from the Top down: 

Top/3rd party BLOCK
RTMM Scenery Object Tester
RTMM BWEP Library
RTMM Medical-APP Library
RTMM Libs 4
RTMM Libs 3
RTMM Libs 2
RTMM Libs 1 (sets)
---------------------------------------
FTX BLOCK  >>> Insertion Point << FTX Entries go below RTMM Libs 1
This FTX Block includes all FTX Regions & Airports 
---------------------------------------
Tongass BLOCK
Tongass Higher
Tongass Lower
---------------------------------------
FTX OpenLC Scenery BLOCK >> FTX Central V3 Insertion Point << OpenLC Entries go below Tongass Lower
---------------------------------------
Named Default Scenery Entries BLOCK
---------------------------------------
Mesh BLOCK: Place any type of Mesh scenery here
---------------------------------------
FTX Global Vector Entries EXX, CVX, APT, FixedAPT, OBJ
---------------------------------------
Numbered Default Scenery Entries (1107 Base - 0000 Base)
---------------------------------------
FTX Global Vector Entry AEC
---------------------------------------
SIM Default Scenery/Default Terrain.
---------------------------------------

Again, try to get this set up before adding any more add-on scenery. Recheck your stuff, then do the scenery tester at PANT again. This is the base that all other stuff is built. Once set up it's easy to add the rest of the RTMM add-ons cause they just layer on top of the RTMM Libs. 

Hope this somewhat helps?

Norm

Tom,
It's hard to help you if you don't answer some of our questions. I've asked you this twice before, but you still haven't provided us with the answer.

"Explain what you mean by it's "visible in the main directory." What "main directory" are you referring to? After you put it into your Addon Scenery are you activating it in the scenery library and pointing to the proper scenery folder?"
