POP Project - Library Consolidation

Our main developmental thrust at this time is in converting and reorganizing the object libraries. Our goal is to have the RTMM site compatible with FSX, FSXDX10 and Prepar3D.  As you know there are thousands of objects, some even automated. Steve Weinkamer and Rod Jackson are spearheading this effort for the team.  They are using a two-step conversion process to make all of this happen.  This is an excerpt from Rod's latest status report (these can always be found on the Objects Library page at the top of the POP section or HERE --> http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/object_libraries/index.php#pop (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/object_libraries/index.php#pop)

Here is the Plan for Library Consolidation.

CeyX_Sceneries_Libraries_2013_07_15FSX10 (417 MB Unzipped)
Partial OZx Replace LIBS 4-XX-14 FSX10 (370 MB Unzipped)
RTMM Object Library 4-XX-14FSX10 (690 MB Unzipped)
EZ Scenery LibraryFSX10 (900 MB Unzipped)
RWY12 LibraryFSX10 (250 MB Unzipped)

Partial OZx Replace LIBS would include the consolidation of:

mwl LibrariesFSX10
kh LibrariesFSX10
UKVFR LibraryFSX10
* Utilities which have now been developed to turn off/on the unconverted counterparts of
these libraries inside the OZx_LIB folder.

The RTMM Object Library would include the consolidation of:

RTMM Object Library 3-18-14FSX10
FinneyAir_FSX_Strobe_CollectionFSX10
Lens_EZ_WildernessFSX10
SDTV2_Object_LibraryFSX10
Westwood Inn ObjectsFSX10
Woody's Additional LibrariesFSX10

All sub object libraries will start with "FSX10" which would then cause them all to be grouped
in IS together so that RTMM developers don’t accidentally pull an object from a non-FSX10
library. The only other object libraries RTMM developers would use are the native
FSX/P3D/Acceleration and Tongass Fjords X libraries. This would mean that other than
payware, RTMM users would only have to download 5 library sets versus the 10 sets they have
to download now and the 5 library sets would be downloaded directly from the RTMM Site.

Misty Moorings Oil Platform Services

Misty Moorings Oil Platform Services (OPS) - Updated (by Doug Linn) When the new SAK for FSX and P3D came out, the terrain in this area was significantly different. The location has been updated to handle the new terrain parameters for FSX/SAK and P3D/SAK.

A new runway was built, longer, and better lighted for night time operations.

Found on the scenery page: http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/#m

Fixed Wing Runway Startup: N60 33.00 W151 15.83   Mag 259
Helo Startup: N60 33.02   W151 15.86   Mag 294
Title: Library Update
Post by: Doug on April 19, 2014, 07:51:20 PM
We are in an awkward time right now, sort of "between" libraries. Rod and Steve are continuing the project of the double conversion process for upgrading the scenery object libraries to handle both FSXDX10 and Prepar3D. We test them a section at a time. Rod will soon be combining some libraries and we will be testing those to make sure they come to you error free.  I have been testing them, and right now have more libraries than I've ever wanted, I will be happier when they are combined.  When we are finished, we hope to have a better product for you and LESS LIBRARIES to download.

One breakthrough we had this week was enabling of the flashing buoys. The objects ceased to function in FSXDX10 and Prepar3D. Rod found a way around the problem and we now have all of them working. (This would have meant a replacement of over 1500 objects, which we will now NOT have to do).

Using the improved objects, I have done a complete remake of RTMM MM Oil Platform Services (Again). I am looking at it in both FSXDX10 and P3D. It is ready for download, but again, between projects, some of the objects may not yet work for you until we have the libraries ready. This scenery location now works the same for both FSXDX10 and P3D, our first. There is not much we can do right now creatively because all the time and effort is going into upgrading the libraries.  Be patient with us and we'll have you covered in FSXDX10 and Prepar3D ... and Misty will always be as beautiful as ever.  This is a huge undertaking the team has taken on ... but progress is excellent.

RTMM Library Consolidation Plan    (updated 4/29/14)                            

(This from Rod's latest POP Status Report that you can always find on the POP Project area of the Object Library Page).

Consolidate libraries such that we have the following single zipped library download of less than 800 MB that then unzips into 5 libraries ready for installation: 

CeyX_Sceneries_Libraries_2013_07_15FSXP3D      (421MB Unzipped)
OZx_LIB SUB Library FSXP3D 5-XX-14    (370 MB Unzipped)
RTMM Object Library FSXP3D 5-XX-14       (694 MB Unzipped)           
EZ Scenery LibraryFSXP3D  5-XX-14        (880 MB Unzipped)
RWY12 LibraryFSXP3D  5-XX-14          (245 MB Unzipped)

OZx_LIB SUB Library (SUB for Substitute) would include the consolidation of the following FSXP3D libraries that will be enabled for use instead of their old counterparts in OZx_LIB (utilities included to enable/disable the proper libraries in OZx_LIB):

mwl LibrariesFSXP3D
kh LibrariesFSXP3D
UKVFR LibraryFSXP3D

The RTMM Object Library would include the consolidation of:

RTMM Object Library 1-22-14FSXP3D
FinneyAir_FSX_Strobe_CollectionFSXP3D
Lens_EZ_WildernessFSXP3D
SDTV2_Object_LibraryFSXP3D
Westwood Inn ObjectsFSXP3D
Woody's Additional LibrariesFSXP3D

All sub object libraries (except for the CeyX libraries which all start with CX because RTMM developers are no longer approved to place objects using this library) will start with "FSXP3D" so that RTMM developers don’t accidentally pull an object from a non-FSXP3D library and can quickly find our converted set of libraries.  The only other object libraries RTMM developers would use are the native FSX/P3D/Acceleration libraries and the Tongass Fjords X libraries.  This would mean that other than payware, RTMM users would only have to download 1 zipped library set, directly from the RTMM Site, that unzips into 5 library installations  versus the 10 sets they have to download now from various sites....a huge improvement.   

POP Update from Doug: Last night we finished testing the FSXP3D-EZ Scenery file.  Thousands of objects and they all look terrific in FSXDX10 and P3D. (We are getting worried that our little test island, Kahoolowe, has so many objects on it that it might turn turtle and sink).  You can see the latest pics for Section 12 at the POP project area of the Object Library Page.

RWY 12 - Converted  (Section 13 at Kaholoowe)

We now have converted RWY12 ... shows fine in FSXDX10 and P3D.  Follow the POP project at the Object Library Page.

Here's what the Kahollowe Testing Ground looks like this morning with all the new "test"  libraries "added". The yellow squares are laid out first. The object is then placed on it. We know the square shows ok in DX10 and P3D ... so after object placement in FSX, when we go to P3D, if there is only a blank yellow square, then we know we have a problem.

Consolidated Libraries Initial Testing - (next, on to the Beta team)

The 5 necessary libraries for RTMM are now a consolidation of what we had before. All objects have been converted (in a two step process) and all are working in FSXDX10 and Prepar3D.  The screen capture below is our first "look" at the effect of the consolidated libraries.  The zip file took 14 minutes to download (Remember, this has EZ Scenery, Rwy12 and other BIG ones in it ... 14 minutes! Wow!). The next phase sends the file out to to the RTMM beta team for testing for 2-3 weeks. They will be looking at all of our areas (except PFJ ... since ORBX hasn't done that one yet) and reporting back on any problems they encounter with the objects.  This is a huge milestone for Steve Weinkamer and Rod Jackson who have spent HOURS AND HOURS on this project for all of you.  This is an amazing accomplishment on the part of these two team members.

Beta Object Library Page ....

You can watch us "design" the new Objects Library Page here:

http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/object_libraries_build/ (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/object_libraries_build/)

None of the links are "hot" yet.  If you have comments on the design of the page, you can add those comments here:

Comment on it HERE (http://forum.mistymoorings.com/index.php?topic=2043.0)

Everything is working and looking great in DX10 and P3D ... so the long hours of work by Rod are going to pay off for the whole community.  We are now in the "tweaking" stage getting final details correct before we launch the new libraries.

Owikeeno Lake Area - Updated - See README PDF HERE

Scenery: There are 33 (documented) scenery locations in this package. We designed this
package keeping three things in mind … helicopters, boats and airplanes! The linkage of all
the scenery location follows our standard of believing that “getting from here to there” is
probably more important than what you left behind in the rear-view mirror or see in the
windshield ahead. It is the journey that counts. With this package, you can get in a boat and
tour a beautiful lake, make many river runs and make long distance boat trips … even to Misty's
Place … miles and miles to the north.

River Runs: There are several “river runs” (or float plans) that are included in this scenery
package. Some of the rivers are accessible by only small fishing boats and some can handle larger
craft. All of the rivers are “river-scaped” meaning we have added interesting things for you to
see along the way. You will have a “starting point” (mooring point) for each river trip. You use
the “MAP” feature in FSX and put in the latitude and longitude coordinates along with the
heading, setting the altitude at zero, and you will be ready to begin your adventure. Those
coordinates are given for each float trip. All coordinates or “starting points” are in the Map
Room at Misty's Place.

PF50 Pacific Gateway Airport Updated: PF50 has been updated. It now has an NDB (PAGA) on 344. There is night lighting that can get you to the runway safely if you arrive after sunset.

If you have not downloaded Owikeeno Lake Area, now would be a good time. Also, for those of you using DX10 and P3D, the updated folder completes the experience for you.

TWEAKING for New FSXP3D Library - We are now going through a process of tweaking our scenery files to make sure they are compatible with all three platforms, FSX, DX10 and P3D. We are also changing or replacing objects that didn't show in one of the platforms, or ones that should not be in the scenery (wrong library). As we get these done, we will highlight the more important ones for you here in the NOTAMs.

Much of the work being done at RTMM right now is not so visible to our fan base. To give you an example, the "readme first" that is in many of our locations explains EZ-Scenery addition ... now not necessary with the FSXP3D libraries. So we are going through each download file and changing the wording. These kinds of things take time and are not to "news worthy". We will be having some new locations to support some of the new Airports coming out by ORBX. But most of our time is in "cleaning up" after the major changes we've made. Bear with us on the lack of news and know there is a LOT happening. (The RTMM team has not gone fishing!)

Post-Library Conversion Quality Control Beginning - On our scenery page, you will notice a FSX/DX10/P3D logo to the right of each scenery location. You will also see a red light or a green light there. We are beginning our final pass on all of the scenery locations making sure all of the objects are viable in each location (we had check them in the libraries, but now we are looking at them in their actual position). As we work our way through the many locations we have on the scenery page, you'll start seeing the red lights turn green. We are pretty sure that ALL scenery locations are working fine, but this is our own way of making sure for you. As we look at each location, we are also looking at the folder and file structure on the server making sure it is error-free. When a major one "turns green" we will post it here so you'll be sure to know about the latest update.

Quality Control Update
Spud and Doug are working on the QC aspect of the post-library conversion. We are not running into many problems. Hardly any with the objects. Mostly, we are cleaning up the files, putting a new ReadMeFirst into the folders and getting rid of some of the outdated ones (that discuss old library instructions, now out of date).

QC Approved: Baird-LeConte Glacier Tour, Bear Observatory, Big Fall Hydro, Bradley Lake Hydro, Brad's BBQ Skeena River, Dean River, Doug's Outfitters, Hugh Smith Lake Hatchery, Aiken Creen, Labouchere Saw Mill, Ocean Falls, Dora Bay Log Transfer, Fountain of Ute, Xavier's Cabin, Last Resort, Kimsquit River Run, Chitina Kennecot Area and Miller Lake.

The green light is now turned on for all of these.  There is no need to re-download any of these, the one with the biggest changes was Big Fall Hydro and Bradley Lake Hydro.  Also Dora Bay had many small boats missing that were replaced.

Note: Spud's "eagle eye" is really helping here. I make the corrections, post the location, Spud then downloads it to make sure all the folders are in order and all the housekeeping in them is correct. Once he tells me the final changes necessary, then after those are made, I turn on the green light. It is a great process. Hopefully this will keep RTMM Quality Control at the highest level for our fans.

"Automated Installation" for AI Shipping from RTMM for FSX and P3D!!! - by Rod Jackson

Return To Misty Moorings (RTMM) is proud to bring you the Return To Misty Moorings AI Shipping Project (RTMMAISP) Version 2.0. It is called V2.0 since it combines the original set of 4 RTMM shipping packages (PNWAISP v1.1, PFJAISP v1.0, TFAISP v1.0 and SAKAISP v1.0) while also adding P3D support along with FSX. If you use FSX and already have the 4 packages noted above then you do not require this newly combined package. However, if you are new to RTMM or now use or plan to use P3D, then this package is for you.

You can find this on the RTMM Shipping Page:

http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/shipping/index.php (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/shipping/index.php)

That page has been revamped to handle the new project ... Is this for you? Probably, here's why:

1. If you have not yet put RTMM AI Shipping into your program, you are really missing something. We sometimes fly for long minutes and hours over water, it is the nature of our area. But amazingly, a ship shows up below. Drop down to it and see which one it is (you can track them on the Shipping Page, there are pictures of all of them). Liven up your water world!

2. If you have one or two areas installed, but not all of them, you can still use this installer, it will put in the tracks and the ships will be there for all areas.

3. You can use this installer for either Prepar3D or FSX. The program asks you for the root file for the program, once you enter that, the installer puts all four maritime areas into your program.

Rod Jackson has done an amazing job to make this a very easy installation for the RTMM fans. Many thanks to Rod (you can thank him in the News Comments Thread).http://forum.mistymoorings.com/index.php?topic=2043.0 (http://forum.mistymoorings.com/index.php?topic=2043.0)

New!  "From Here to There" web page launched!

The new ""Here to There (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/)"" web page has been launched. 

http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/ (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/)

You spend a little time prepping for your flight at an airport or SPB. When you land, you taxi to your final position and button down. However, with a flight simulator, you spend MOST of your time in cockpit as you travel "from here to there."  The Return to Misty Moorings experience is about the journey. We offer you excellent scenery locations for starting points and landings, some are highly complex. But our focus will always be on the journey. Our goal is to make that journey the most pleasurable experience you can encounter in flight simming.

The new ""Here to There (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/)"" page focus on getting from Point A to Point B. It gives you access to Dispatches, Missions, Trip Tickets, Flight Plans, lat/long starting points for all scenery locations (so you can start there and "fly back!).

We will also have a "featured location" that we will change often.  For years our highlighted scenery has always been the "latest one." But what about the "latest ones" from the past that are still among the most beautiful we have to offer? Our RTMM team will be selecting their "all time favorites" and we will be highlighting those.  For people who have come recently, this is a feature to check often as you will be flying the "best of the best."

You can get to ""Here to There (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/)"" from multiple places on the site. Misty's Place is still the key for navigating around the site. The button control panel at the top of that page takes you almost anywhere on the site. One of the new buttons is "From Here to There."   Notice the "starting points" button now puts you onto the new page, as does "dispatches" and "trip tickets."

There is another feature we are building into the new page, a complete set of ALPHABETICAL flight plans for every scenery location on the site.(  http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#plans (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#plans) ). This is a work in progress and as we come through the QC program for the new libraries, we are adding these to that zip file .... you will see the latest date. When finished, you can download this file, put it into your documents area and have a flight plan for every RTMM scenery location, listed alphabetically.

We hope you like the new page .. .:

For Prepar3D Users only: Wake Update for RTMM AI Shipping - by Dex Thomas

An "effect files update" has been posted on the Shipping Page, you will find this just under the section for AI Shipping.  These are updated "effects". You copy them and paste them into your "effects" folder for your simulator, overwriting when asked. Very simple. This takes care of the "reddish" wakes that we were seeing.

QC for Locations Project Update - By Doug Linn

You will notice a small change on the scenery page ... there are now red, green and YELLOW lights on the locations. Since we've been asked about the lights, here's what they mean:

Red ... location has not yet been checked
Yellow ... location is checked, "fixed" file (if needed) is uploaded ... ready for QC
Green ... location has been checked for QC and is ready for "prime time!"

Yellow indicates to Spud that there is a file ready for QC.  This simplifies our communications. When he gives it the OK, then he lets me know and it goes "green."

We've got about 1/3 of them done, so the project is on schedule. We are finding VERY FEW problems with the conversion. We are checking in FSX and P3D. There are some "undefined models" but these are being eliminated with this process, and none of them have been major (a cabin, a pier, etc) ... just filler objects.

For the Flight Plans.zip ... anything that is Green or Yellow is in that folder now. Red has not yet been added.

QC Project Updates ...

First Quality Control (QC) pass completed. Almost everything has a green or yellow "light" on the logo. The ones that are red are going to take some special attention (ones with season switchers, etc).  I went through all of the locations looking for "alien" and "undefined" models (objects).  I deleted the Undefined Models, we didn't find any "alien" objects.  Everything is showing perfectly in P3D, FSX and FSXDX10. Next, we download those with a yellow light to make sure the downloads work correctly and that we have the necessary files for each location.  The lights will turn green as we go through this process.

Server Cleanup: I also cleaned up all of the folders on the server, over 300 of them. The only files residing on the server for each location now are the zip file you download and the map, thumbnail and large pictures that show on the web page.

Flight Plans - Every flight plan (from those that are green or yellow) are now in the Flight Plans.zip (Here to There Page/Flight Plans).  We had to make 3 new flight plans for locations that didn't have one. Any location that is an airport itself does not have a flight plan. You can download this zip, copy what is in the folder and paste it into Documents/Flight Simulator X Files/ for FSX or Documents/Prepar3D vx/ for Prepar3D.  This will give you flight plans for almost all of our sceneries. These all start with an "=" sign so they should all be grouped at the top of your Flight Planning Library. They are also in alphabetical order for the location name.

Dispatches Links --- were broken. Thanks to Rein Kamphuis (Netherlands) for spotting this for us. We fixed the links and Rein confirms they are now working. (We really appreciate people letting us know when something is out of place or not working). Fixing those makes the site better for everyone. "Hat Tip" to Rein!

"How to Install" Button: We know there is a problem with some of the "old" installation instructions in the old readme.txt files. Many discuss the old scenery libraries and how to download and install them. We've put a new ReadMeFirst.txt in to all of the updated folders.  Also, there is a new little button on the button row at the bottom of each scenery location ... "How to Install".  That is a button that links to a FAQ discussing how to install our scenery locations here at Misty Moorings. I'm sure we will be expanding that FAQ ... but for now it is a reminder that some of the old instructions are no longer valid.

Taku Lodge: We also received permission from Holly Johnson at Taku Lodge to use their name and logo. We sent Holly screen shots of the lodge and she has thanked us for them. So now that we have permission, we can repost Taku Lodge. This is a beautiful piece of work done by Xavier and Jacques ... it was a shame to keep in hiding ... now it is where you can get it yourself on the Scenery Page.

Cabins by the Lakes - by Brad Allen

Cabins by the Lakes is now the "featured" scenery location on the ""Here to There (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/)"" page.

"Here to There (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/)" http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/

This is a set of 30 cabins located up in the SAK region. Brad created these so we could all get a better look at this new territory.

All of the starting points for all THIRTY of the cabins are now on the Starting Points page on the "Here to There (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/)" page. If you click on the name of the location at the starting point, it will bring up the map so you can view what your flight would be like. Also, all of the flight plans were renamed so they could fit alphabetically into the Flight Plan.zip file you can find on "Here to There (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/)".

If you like Bush Flying at its best, tiny cabins to find on beautiful lakes ... this is a "must have" package. As much fun flying TO them is using the Starting Point to start at the cabin, see the cabin, then fly BACK to the nearest airport "direct" on the GPS.  Either direction, the view is beautiful. Now, with the starting points, you can do both.

If you don't have it, get it. But go take a look at the example screenshot on the "Here to There (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/)" page.

Season Switcher FAQ and Button

A new FAQ has been posted for the RTMM Season Switcher, there is a zip download button there so people can download the program.  You can see it here (http://return.mistymoorings.com/faq/#s). Every time the Season Switcher (http://return.mistymoorings.com/faq/#s) is mentioned on the Scenery Page or elsewhere, we link to that single place. So when/if we make an upgrade of that program, we will only have to change it in one place and everything will automatically point to it.

Tucked into many of the commercial packages we have are tiny docks and communities that don't show up as airports, yet they are beautiful locations and wonderful starting points. As we run across these, we'll put them into RTMM_Docks. This can be found on the Scenery Page (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/#r) under "R".  Also, all of these are included on the Starting Points (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#start) table on the Here to There (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#index) page. They have a "#" sign after them so you'll know which they are.

REVERSED flight plans ... Plans from the LOCATION to the AIRPORT

All of our locations have flight plans and maps so you can find your way to them.  But what if you want to start at an RTMM scenery location (e.g. Herring Bay Cannery) and want to fly back to the airport?  We now have a full set of "reversed" flight plans ... plans that guide you from the LOCATION  to the AIRPORT.

There are now two (nearly) complete flight plan sets you can download and these will give you directions to/from (almost) all RTMM locations.

1. Airport to Location Plans ... these are the typical FSX/P3D flight plans. Except we have renamed them and put a "=" sign ahead of the title to keep them grouped and at the top of your flight planning folder.

2. Location to Airport Plans ... these are also typical FSX/P3D. We have also renamed these with the name of the Location first with a "#" sign in front of the name, which groups them and keeps them toward the top of your flight planning folder.

After you have these installed, you can be at a location, go to your flight planner, look up the location (alphabetically), making sure it is the Location to Airport plan with a "#" ahead of the name, enter it ... and you have a plan to fly back to the airport ready on your GPS.

Both flight plan sets are now available on the HERE to There (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#plans) page.

Notice both buttons show an "update" date, so you can always be sure to have the latest. We are still building these files. (CIRP is now built into them, a change from 3 days ago.)

Maintenance ... You do not need to put all of the flight plans in, you can choose the ones you want, copy/paste.  Also, if you put them all in, and later do not want them, then you simply go to your documents folder where they are stored and delete them.

For FSX, these will be placed in ...Documents/Flight Simulator X/
For P3D, these will be placed in ... Documents/Prepar3D V.x/

CIRP added to Starting Points and Flight Plans

All of the CIRP locations (Including Soule Glacier and Bear River Lodge) have been added to the Starting Points (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#start) table (all indicated with (CIRP)). Flight Plans were made for R & R Lodge and Soule Landing, including maps.

The Airport to Location and Location to Airport zips are updated with CIRP additions. These found on the HERE to THERE (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#plans) page.

CIRP is "Green" ...and a few more!

1. C.I.R.P. ("C" on the Scenery Page) is now fully FSXDX10/P3D ready.

2. Hollis Harbor and Halibut Cove are now ready and "green."

3. The Northern Air Cargo (NAC) bases and outlying areas are all "green". We created a flight plan from Juneau for this one and a new map. The starting points are all on the Starting Points Page (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#start) now. (This is a very well-done package, you should look at it).

4. I put "back to top" spacers between the alphabetical listings on the Starting Points Page (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#start) . The list is so long now that if you get "down into it" it is hard to return, now you can click on the spacer and it will take you to the top of the table.

5. The Flight Plan Zips were updated.

We have only a few left to "QC" and we are working on those.

A Misty Tale - A story by Bryan Kirk
FedEx Combined Terminals

A Misty Tale
Bryan Kirk contributed 3 chapters of "A Misty Tale" to the site back in 2005.  Brad recently remembered this effort and I pulled down from the old site and "updated" it with all the pictures so it could be viewed on RTMM. This is a story about the background of Misty's Place.  We wish Bryan was still around to write a few more chapters for us.  Thank you Bryan (where ever you are) and hat tip Brad!

You can see it HERE (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/mistys/#story)

FedEX Combined Download Package

We have combined the 9 separate FedEx terminals into a single download, fixing the scenery as we went to make sure everything was compatible. The new package is ready. If you downloaded any of these before, delete the folders and "areas' from your simulator and add this one folder.

IMPORTANT NOTAM now on FAQ Page
Web Site FSX/P3D Update (Under "W")

We are basically finished with the massive conversion process on the scenery location and object libraries to be fully compatible with FSX, DX10 and P3D.  We are one of the first sites in the flight sim community to have accomplished this. Because of the conversion process, there are questions people are having.  I've put a FAQ up under "W" so you can look at how the process was accomplished and it should answer many of your questions (Should I re-download everything?).  (NO!) and it is explained there as to why or why not. There are "updated" instructions in many of the older NOTAMS on the notams page ... instructions on updates on anything before 2014 should be considered "outdated". We are going to leave the NOTAM page intact for historical reasons, but instructions for updating prior to 2014 should be disregarded.

The new Web Site FSX/P3D Update FAQ is HERE (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/faq/#w)

FEATURED LOCATION:Hollis Harbor - by Rod Jackson

This is an exceptional scenery location, and if you do not have it yet added to your RTMM collection, now would be a good time to do so. The flight TO this location is one that can take you low and slow among the soft, greenery covered mountains.  And at the end of the beautiful flight?  An absolutely perfect scenery package ... one you will want to look at "up close."  Look for it on the top of the HERE2THERE page.

NEW SCENERY ADDITION - Herring Bay Seaplane Base and Tail Dragger Diner

Brad Allen made one of the original "classic" scenery locations for us when RTMM first started up. And Herring Bay Cannery has always been a favorite. It is one of the locations in the "Legends" package for beginners. I fly there often after a day of working, just to take a short flight from Misty's Place, enjoy whatever weather is thrown at me and head for Herring Bay. The Cannery is a sight to see.  But WAIT, THERE's MORE ... If you call now, we'll DOUBLE your OFFER ....:-)   

We've added a little Tail Dragger Diner across from the cannery. You can park at the dock and head in for a VERY fresh fish sandwich. Or you can sit out at the picnic tables and just marvel at the scenery in Herring Bay.  We've also added a little Seaplane Base (SPB) at the end of the inlet. This has a dry ramp, so if you have an amphibian, you can roll up onto the concrete, get a little gas or get the windshield cleaned!

If you haven't already got Herring Bay Cannery ... (well shame on you!) You should download it first. Then add the bonus offer of the Diner and the Seaplane Base.  Then, as I do, just take the flight in the evening after all the work is done. It is 15 minutes from Misty's Place and 15 minutes back. There is a TO and FROM flight plan for each direction with instructions.  Look for the new location on the scenery page under "H". Sorry, it is not compatible with the ORBX PayWare PAKT SP1.   Enjoy.

FEATURED SCENERY LOCATION - Port Bazan Cannery by Brad Allen

This is our latest "featured" scenery. Wondering where to fly, we'll help you choose an interesting one with our "Featured Location" posted about once a week. Here is a scenery location few have found. This is a great low and slow flight from Misty's Place to the Western Coastal area of Alaska. You are "safe" at 1200 feet (but update your barometer (B) as there are two 800 Foot clearance areas).  You will pass over Hunter Bay Cannery on your way, and you probably should make a stop there just to look around if you have not seen it. See it on our Featured Scenery Location at Here2There (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/)

Port Bazan is on the west side of Dall Island, and is a safe port for the local fishing vessels who need a sheltered moorage during bad weather. It lies between two prominent mountain peaks about five miles apart. The northwestern mountain is 2,500 feet high and the top is a small bare tip. The southeastern mountain is 1,950 feet high and is roughly the shape of a rounded cone and heavily wooded all the way to the top. Port Bazan is about 3 miles in length, averages 1 mile in width and is largely filled with islands of various sizes. Dolgoi Island, nearly closing the entrance, is 1-1/2 miles long and 3/4 of a mile wide. It is mound shaped and wooded and while the seaward shore of the island is storm swept and bare of vegetation, the rest of the island is heavily wooded. This island protects the rest of the cove from the wrath of the Pacific during storm conditions.

Port Bazan can be entered either southeastward or northwestward of Dolgoi Island but the northwest entrance is preferable. This anchorage is the best on the west coast of Dall Island because it is thoroughly sheltered from outside swell and the configuration of the mountains is such that it is reported that storm surge winds are never felt. Look for various fishing vessels in the harbor and the channels as you approach the cannery. There are channel markers that should be used for reference inside the cove.

To/From Flight Plans are available for ALL RTMM locations!  (Over 750 of them!)

The "To/From" flight plan project has been completed. We now have flight plans for all RTMM locations, this includes the 231 USFS cabins.  The "TO" plans are designated with a "=" prefix ... these take you from the airport TO the location.  The "FROM" plans are designated with a "#" prefix...these take you FROM the location to the airport. For the "FROM" plans, you will have to "position" your aircraft at the mooring point using the Latitude, Longitude and Heading given for that location (set Altitude to Zero and Speed to Zero).  The latitude and longitude for each location is on the Here2There for all RTMM locations, and on The Cabins web page for the USFS Cabins. Once you position your aircraft, you then go to the flight planner and load up the "#" plan for that location. Once you take off, you can use the autopilot to take you back to the airport.

You can download the RTMM locations TO/FROM plans from the Here2There Page and all of the To/From flight plans for the USFS cabins from "The Cabins" page. You unzip these folders, copy the contents and paste them into your simulator's documents folder (For FSX /documents/Flight Simulator X/ .... for P3D  /Documents/Prepare3D Vx Files/). Once loaded there, you will be able to see them from inside the sim when you go to the flight planner. The "#" (from) locations will be grouped together alphabetically as will the "=" locations.  Also, if you decide you do not want these ... simply go to the flight sim document folder and delete everything with the # or =.  This is completely reversible.

This gives you over 760 flight plans helping you get from Here2There.  Instructions for the process are in the attachment below.  All USFS cabins have a "USFS" designation in the title of the plan so you will know this is a USFS cabin.  The plans are alphabetical based on location name, so you can more easily find them in the full set of plans.  If you want a plan "FROM" the location, you choose the name of the location with a "#" prefix. If you want to go "TO" the location from an airport, you chose the name of the location with a "=" prefix.

PLAN-G and Using Waypoints Table Added

We are still getting many emails with people asking how to choose what to fly to first, or what to download first, etc. To help those people and to help you choose your next flight, we added a table on the Here2There (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/) page. This gives the links to Plan-G for downloading the free program. It also links to the csv files that Dieter Linde has made for us. Once you have Plan-G and the waypoints (csv files) you import them into Plan-G. Then when you look at our area in Plan-G, you will see ALL of the RTMM locations, including the USFS Cabins. So you can browse a map and look for an interesting area. You then get the name of the waypoint from the Plan-G map (instructions at table), then select the TO or FROM flight from the RTMM Flight Plans package.  Also, if you do not have that scenery location, you will know which scenery location to download next.  Browsing Plan-G with the added waypoints is a great way of selecting your new flight.

The new "how to" table is located HERE (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#waypoints)

RTMM Missing Cabins Updated  (Download HERE (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/cabins/zips/RTMM%20Missing%20Cabins.zip))

We found an "extra" cabin that did not belong. We thought there was a cabin missing (Appleton Cove) and it was actually there in Tongass X.  The "added" missing cabin has now been taken out of the bgl and the lat/long coordinates and mooring (starting) point has been updated. (So has FSDiscover, although I cannot check it).

All this new download does is take out that "extra" cabin that should not have been there, about a mile down the coast from the USFS cabin put in by Tongass X.

St Paul Airlines and RTMM

St Paul Airlines has contacted us and asked if we would be interested in working with them. They would like to be adding "low and slow" flights to their ample book of flight plans and we can offer them over 700 plans to and from sceneries in Return to Misty Moorings.  And we hope to always be at the front of the line to welcome visitors to our special area. 

It is always exciting to meet with new people who share our love of virtual flight.   You can look at their extensive web site HERE (http://www.stpaulairlines.com/).

We will be seeing the SPA pilots show up on our forum ... and they will probably have their name and an SPA number in their signature (so you can know who they are and welcome them). Something like this: Yoland SPA348. 

Our site is not the easiest one to get "around" since it is one of the largest of its size. So when you see a "seemingly lost" pilot with the SPA logo on his sleeve come through the door at Misty's Place ... be ready to give them a great welcome and also be ready to guide them through some of the basics of Misty Moorings. Don't be surprised if you get an answer in French (a language we hear often at Misty's Place) ... just use the Google Translate and carry on since we have NO PROBLEMS with posts in a language that is only foreign to "us"! :-).  We also invite our French-Speaking members to give SPA a proper.  For those of us "mired" in English ... start with "Ayez une bonne journée, Quel est votre nom?"

Many members here at RTMM enjoy VA's, here is a chance to work with a very professional outfit that is interested in working with us.  They will be using our scenery locations and our flight plans (Plan G, SAK, PFJ, PNW and Tongass X). So if you have the desire to file a PIREP there, you will be familiar with all of the tools you already use here. And if you are doing some flying with them, you can give them some guidance to Misty's Place in their forum.

We welcome SPA to our area, and will be ready to give them a hand and guidance through the Misty Moorings virtual scenery and web site.  Getting set up is the hardest part, and we can help. Giving people a wonderful journey to remember is the goal!   Welcome SPA!

C. RTMM Flight Plans Updated
D. A New Featured Location - Josephine Lake USFS Cabin


A: Made some MINOR changes at Misty's Place. Added "Misty's Place Bar" sign to the building along with an "Air Services" sign. At the docks at the far end of the runway, moved the light poles from the ends of the docks back to the shore so a float plane could park there without ripping off the wing.

B. Moved the Virtual Airline tables from Misty's Place to the "Here2There" page. When you click on the button at Misty's Place, it takes you to the new location for these.  If you have not explored VA ... these are two excellent choices for you to try.

C. Josephine Lake USFS Cabin plans updated (to/from)

D. A new "featured" location, Josephine Lake USFS Cabin. A very simple scenery, and a flight that begins simple and ends in some white-knuckle complexity.

Nina's Landing Update (New file added 09.11.2014)

An iceberg has appeared out of season at Nina's Landing ... global warming folks are telling me it must be an error since all the ice is receding, but there's a more accurate answer ... we were testing an "ice object" during the DX10/P3d object conversion process and the iceberg remained after testing.  It has now been melted ... which now all the proof for the global warming crowd needs, the icebergs are even melting in RTMM!  (We aim to please).

We are not sure "when" this happened so cannot tell you whether or not you have an iceberg. If you do have one, then download the Nina's Landing scenery location, remove the Nina's Landing folder from your sim's scenery addons and put in the new one dated 09.11.2014.  If you don't have an iceberg ... there is NO NEED to re-download this file ... all I did was melt the iceberg, nothing else changed.

PS: If you like your iceberg, you can keep your iceberg.

New (Updated) Misty's Place Web Page (with new slideshow)

The Misty's Place web page has been re-done and updated. The Virtual Airlines are now over on the Here2There page. The Dispatches are now also over there (also the database for them was moved).

I've created a new "slider" (slide show for screenshots) for the Misty's Page. All of the thumbnails are gone and you can just watch the pictures. You can also use the mouse on the slider to pause a picture or slide it to the right for forward or to the left for backward in the order.

At the moment, there are only 8 screen captures in the "show" ...we will continually be adding to these with the best of the best ... from the team, and from some of yours.  I'll be "adjusting" them to keep the formats similar with the page titles, etc.

There have been some comments on the forum that the wakes on the AI Shipping (boats) are not correct, some showing a pink wake. Dex Thomas has repaired this problem ... and he did it about 3 months ago.  So the fix is already on the AI Shipping Site, you will find it in the second table (HERE (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/shipping/index.php)).  You will see a button for Wake Fix for P3D.  Click on that and execute the instructions in the readme and the problem will be solved.

Vehicle Object Fix for P3D

Recently, we discoverd that objects displayed by P3Dv2 that are being rendered from the standard P3Dv2 vehicles_land.bgl object library, located in the P3D v2\Scenery\Global\Scenery folder,  are, on a random basis, not displayed at all, displayed with broken graphics (e.g. missing tires) or displayed correctly.  So, for example, in a line of land vehicles from the vechicles_land.bgl placed on a surface, all may appear correctly, some may appear or some may appear and some will have broken graphics.  Every time the scenery is reloaded, the result can be different.  This indicates that Lockheed's vehicles_land.bgl does not work correctly in P3Dv2 and needs to be corrected by Lockheed Martin in a future release. (A bug report has been sent to LM).

For now, if you want P3Dv2 to correctly display some of the land vehicles in our sceneries, there is a simple temporary fix, included in this patch folder.  We are providing an alternate file named vehicles_landFSXP3D.BGL    This file was created by taking the vehicles_land.bgl from FSX and re-converting it using MCX to work correclty in P3Dv2.  This conversion process was similar to what RTMM did when we converted all the other non-compliant RTMM object libraries to be compliant with P3Dv2. 

If you wish to use this converted file on a temporary basis until Lockheed is able to correct their vehicles_land.bgl so that it works properly in P3Dv2, simply go to the ...P3D v2\Scenery\Global\Scenery Folder and add the suffix .off to the vehicles_land.bgl file you find there and then copy the vehicles_landFSXP3D.BGL  from this folder to that very same ...P3D v2\Scenery\Global\Scenery Folder. This converted file contains all the same models that the incorreclty working vehicles_land.bgl file contained except that now they have been re-converted to work correclty in P3Dv2.

Look on the top of the SCENERY page (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/) at the bottom of the top table. There is a zip button there where you can download this temporary patch. Our thanks to Rod for figuring this out and giving us this temporary fix.

We had to take down the posting because of potential copyright problems using the name "Yes Bay Lodge". We have now heard from Ryan Martinez, Marketing/Reservations Manager for Yes Bay Lodge giving us permission.

This is a very complex location and you should read the PDF file carefully to fully understand the installation of this work. You will find boating traffic enhancements, an upper and lower lodge and many other additions in the downloads. You can find it under "Y" on the Scenery Page.

RTMM Flight Plans - updating regularly

If you are using the RTMM Flight Plans package, keep an eye on it. We are updating it regularly as we are finding things to "fix".  The latest "fix" will be posted at the download page for it (Here2There) with the "update date".  I'll not make a notam every time we update it, but keep an eye on it if you are using these, they are changing.

Also, flight plan maps for Josephine Lake, Staney Creek Cabin have been added to the Cabins page. They were previously missing.

Nina's Landing Update - Sound

We have been experiencing problems with the sound files at Nina's Landing. We've decided to take them out. If you already have them, look at the zip you downloaded and eliminate the sound files.

New Trip Ticket - Wasilla to Seward (overland route) Flightseeing Tour

I created a trip ticket (V2) that takes you from Wasilla to Seward past Lawing on an "inside" route going through the mountains rather than around over water. This is the first of these kinds of Trip Tics. Most of ours go from an airport to a location. But we do not have any from airport to airport. I intend to highlight some of the lesser known float plane bases with many of these. These will all be "flight-seeing" routes which means you can turn on the autopilot and enjoy the scenery yourself. There are historical facts included in each as you pass over specific areas. You bring up the ticket, then you can download the map and flight plan from the top of the TripTic. (Notam: You can use the autopilot, but watch the NOTAMs for Altitude changes along the way on these). Also there are pictures included for the "tricky" turns to help you find your way if you are going full VFR. You can find the first one HERE (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#tickets). If you are not familiar with how to use the TripTics, you can learn about them on the FAQ page HERE (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/faq/#t).

Cape Decision to Edna Bay Docks - Trip Tic Added

You will need Tongass X for this and the "RTMM Docks" scenery package. This gives you 19 updated little airports (float). These are "real" sea plane bases and lighthouses.  I'll be making a series of Trip Tickets to go between all of them.  We have another package called SAK Sea Plane Bases, which is similar but for ORBX SAK. We will also be making trip tickets for those eventually.  We are going to keep them separate (Tongass X and SAK). If someone only has Tongass X, then s/he should be using only the Tongass X flight plans, etc).

These will be found on the HERE2THERE page in the Trip Tickets area (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#tickets).  These will be all "non-location" tickets, meaning we don't have a "scenery package" (like a cabin or lodge) at the end of a flight. All of these will be (little) airport to airport flights.

Trip Tic - Corner Bay Docks to Gilbert Bay SPB and Airfield

This is a V3 TripTic ... meaning there are screenshots of the turns and visual instructions. You can fly these VFR, or use the gps to "tip you off" to the turns ... or the autopilot to fly low and slow and just sit back and see the beautiful scenery. This route is east/west south of Juneau. You will need Tongass X for the TripTic and the RTMM Docks scenery package. About a 25 minute flight. You can find it at Here2There in the Trip Tickets Table.

Trip Tic Beta (Quality Control for the masses!)

We are "connecting" many of the little TFxx spb's and docks that are relatively unknown. These short TripTics connect these so people get a chance to see them. (They are so small, you are probably flying over them and don't even know they are there). We'll be posting the beta TripTics on the Scenery Page, UNDER the "Z" area. (Go to the scenery page, click on Z, it will take you to the bottom of the page). This gives everyone a shot at helping us with quality control for these. The discussion thread is HERE (http://forum.mistymoorings.com/index.php?topic=2311.0). There is a "feedback" link at the bottom of each of the new tickets so you can get "errors and problems" back to us quickly.

The first one is "up" in the area and is ready for testing: Biorkia Island Biorkai Island Dock to Saginaw Dock West.

Trip Ticket - Frederick Point VOR Station to Five Finger Lighthouse
TF06 (Vor Stn) Modified


There is a new beta trip ticket (below Z on the scenery page).  If you fly it and have a problem, let us know with the feedback link at the bottom of the triptic.  This 40 mile trip over water is an easy one (a great one for beginners on TripTics). We found a problem at TF06. The dock there had an invisible extension that caused the aircraft to rise 20 feet in the air. We put in an exclusion and added a new dock and the problem is solved. (We only saw this problem with P3D, not FSX). So the scenery is compatible for both sims. Be sure to download the updated RTMM Docks scenery to make sure you have the latest.

Wilson River Lodge - To/From Flight Plans (to Misty's Place)

To and From flight plans have been created for low and slow to and from Wilson River Lodge and Misty's Place. Both LAND landings, no water (select wheels!). Although this is an airport (PF25) and you can fly to it direct, there was no low/slow plans to reach the lodge and fly back from it. You can download the plans from the Scenery Page under Wilson River (look for FS button) and it is now in the RTMM Flight Plans zip on the Here2There Page.

Misty's Place Remodeling -(V8)

Too many people have been going into the wrong door at Misty's Place, and ending up in the maintenance area of the old hanger instead of the bar. So we've remodeled it a little to give our visitors an easier way to find the "correct" front door. Misty's Place is a converted hanger with a friendly gateway in what used to be the hanger door. We've even got a greeter on the porch now. The update is on the scenery page under Misty's Place.

In this case, add "Bell 407" and Klaus' new repaint will be found for you. Click on the image to download the file. (I've put two "reminder" buttons at the top of the enhancements page for the FIND.

Windsocks - Rod Jackson made and excellent "Developer's Guide" that is for the people more advanced in "scenery objects".  You can see the summary for the guide on the FAQ page under "D". Also, there you can download the full document (Word).  One of the items Rod discusses in the guide is that the windsocks from FSX no longer work in P3D. If you want a "working" windsock (one that moves with wind direction) you have to create the xml file and place it yourself. Rod has given a complete guideline for how this is done (and if I can do it, you can too!). Rod has an example that puts 4 of them in different colors and sizes at the PANT Scenery Tester Area ... for your practice.

So I have been practicing making windsocks. I have 3 of them now at the COMING SOON Hang 'Em High (Status 90% complete), and I put one in at Misty's Place. So if you have this huge desire to have a windsock at Misty's Place, you can download the scenery folder again, replacing the old one and you'll have the windsock. About half way down the runway.  If there is a critical place in our scenery where you feel one of these is needed, let me know and I'll put one there for you.

REMINDER: Don't forget to put the Christmas Lights up at Misty's Place ... 'Tis the Season. (Misty's Christmas Scenery).

"FIND" Feature for FAQ Page - Sometimes it can be difficult to find something on the FAQ page. I've put a little reminder at the top of the page right under the A-Z index. You can enter CTRL-F (Windows) or CMD-F (Apple) while on the page, a little box will come up and you can put what you are seeking in the box and it will go right to it.  For instance, if you want to see how to make a windsock, while on FAQ, enter CTRL-F and put "windsock" into the little box. It goes right to the first "windsock" word.  As we add things to the FAQ, we'll be sure to put in more key words to make finding things even easier there.

Fuel Pump Triggers and Out of Order signs

We can now make our fuel pump objects "pump fuel" without turning the location into an official airport. We have many docks with fuel facilities, and now we can make them active working pumps.  This was created by Rod Jackson. You can find out how to "do it" yourself if you look on the FAQ page (enter CTRL-F) and put "fuel" into the box ... it will take you to the discussion and the "how to" file Rod has created.

And for those fuel pumps that don't work, Steve has given us some new objects you'll be getting in an updated library soon ... some great little "out of order" signs for inactive objects. At the new Hang Em High (coming soon) there will be a non-working pump at the upper lodge with an "out of order" sign (see below) and at the lower lodge, a fuel pump that will fill your tank.

Google Earth KMZ file for RTMM - by "Rustam" (Vüqar Quliyev)

Here is an excellent contribution from an RTMM member, "Rustam".  This is a Google Earth KMZ file that lists all of the RTMM locations, and it is "click-able" ... when you click it you can get information for the location right from the RTMM archives. This has almost 700 entries in it, each one taking in a great deal of detail. We are VERY proud to offer this to the folks at RTMM and VERY thankful that "Rustam" has taken the time to create it and share it with all of us.

You can find it on the Here2There page. Look in the upper index for RTMM KMZ file for Google Earth ... click on that and it takes you down to the table (located just above the starting points).

Many thanks for a great contribution.

Windsock Added - Wilson River Lodge

Wilson River Lodge now has an operational windsock ... we'll be adding these to places that need them. If you re-download the file, the windsock will be there ... but NO other changes are made to the scenery, so the download is optional.

Updates ...

1. The windsock project is complete, go to the thread listed in the previous post for the final list of changes. This includes all of the ice stations in CIRP.
2. Misty's Place
    A. New Starting Points have been added
    B. A Fuel depot has been placed at Misty's Place. One of the new starting points is the fuel pump.
3. Steve is still working on the new library update as well as some more surprises for everyone.
4. Hang Em High is finished, but we will wait on the new libraries.
5. We are initiating a fuel depot project, adding "triggers' to many of the fuel depots we have on the docks at many of the RTMM locations. This will be a longer-range project and we'll need your help as the project develops. Watch for a thread at the Addon Scenery Area.

Misty's Place Update and Misc

Misty's Place has been updated (again). Some requested new starting points and a heli starting point. So now the folder has all of these plus an active fuel trigger and windsocks (put in before).  There is also an active NDB on freq. 359 that will get you home "direct" on a clear day when you can fly higher. It is located at the end of the 35 Rwy.

NOTAM: Important... be sure you DELETE the old Misty's Place Folder and REPLACE it with the new download. We've made some file name changes and if you "overwrite" you will have all kinds of problems with doubles of things. It is always safer to use the "Delete/Replace" method of updating RTMM files for this reason.

We've changed the column sizes on the Here2There starting points table. We'll now be able to use the 4 digit lat/long "seconds" delineation. This will put you exactly where you need to be.  I'm doing this mostly for the helicopters that need more critical placement with the helipads. We will begin adding the "4 digit" seconds one at a time.

Fuel Management Project: We have outlined the Fuel Management Project on THIS THREAD (http://forum.mistymoorings.com/index.php?topic=2372.msg19335#msg19335). So we now have a basic strategy.

NDB's for Misty Moorings: We will be putting NDB's into many of the PFxx airports as we put in the fuel triggers. For the frequency, we will be putting a 10 ahead of the PFxx airport number.

Misty's Place Updated: Misty's Place is PF20, so it's NDB is 1020. It's call sign is now
(MST _ _  ... _).

Khutzeymateen River Bear View Lodge - Update 12.13.2014

PF01, the Khutzeymateen River Bear View Lodge, was our first scenery location. It was created by Brad Allen and Kim Gowney. It has since been renovated and updated by Rod Jackson. The location now has it's own "fuel start box" and an you can get fuel at the active pumps.  This is our FEATURED LOCATION (http://return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/) right now. If you haven't been to the lodge, now is the time to go. There is a LOW and SLOW (and a little white-knuckle) flight seeing trip for this location. All of this is available on the Scenery Page under "K".

This is an exciting trip and a beautiful final location.

Airport Facilities Tables - (On the FAQ Page)

The new Airport Facilities Tables are ready for use on the FAQ page (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/faq/). Mostly these include the additions of Windsocks, NDB's and Fuel Boxes (startups at the fuel box). Every PFxx and TFxx airport now has its on operational windsock and "operational" fuel pump per the indications on the tables. (There are some exceptions, look at the colors on the tables for specifics). The NDB's are OPTIONAL and can be downloaded separately from a file beneath the tables, read the instructions carefully, you DO NOT have to install the optional NDBs.

Download or not? If you are not interested in these small upgrades, then there is no need for you to re-download any of the airports or scenery areas.  If you do want the update, you can get it directly from the FAQ table by clicking on the location name. OR you can still get it from the scenery page .. those too are all updated. 

For NEW USERS: For new users who have not downloaded any of these, disregard the downloads on the tables and download from the  Scenery Page, the updates are included there. The links on the Airport Facilities tables are only for the convenience of users who already have these locations downloaded and wish to update their location.

REMEMBER, play it SAFE!  Delete the old scenery folder and add the new one. The scenery folder names are the same.  It is not SAFE to overwrite, you may get duplicate files with "similar" names.
   
Using the Tables: The top two tables will probably not change unless there is a new airport added. These become a handy reference for you if you are interested in fuel management, are a heli pilot and need the wind direction, etc. The last table, (Table 3) , will change as we find locations that need windsocks, (Optional) NDB's and active fuel pumps. But that table will only be for UPDATES to present scenery locations. Any new scenery locations will be announced here in the NOTAMs and will be downloaded from the Scenery Page per usual.

MOST IMPORTANT!!!! Read the instructions for each table before using it. Everything you need to know is explained there. If it is not, let us know and we'll get it fixed to make it easier for you.  These upgrades represent about 100 hours of time from the team, we hope you enjoy them.

Scenery Object Library Part III - A significant update

Steve Weinkamer, with a little help from Rod Jackson have expanded the number of objects we can use in RTMM.  Steve has also begun making his own objects, many of which will show in the new locations that are being uploaded today.  If you already have Part I and Part II, there is no need to download these again. You only need to add Part III.  When you do download Part III, read the instructions for installation completely and carefully.  Often we just rush to install these things ... but we have to be VERY CAREFUL on the Object Library Folders because they are SO critical to success with RTMM.  Remember also, we have a new Topic on the Forum for Scenery Object Libraries ... if you have problems or questions with these, you have a place to go to discuss the problem you are having and there will be people there to help you out.  Please don't be shy. The Object Libraries are the most difficult step in enjoying RTMM ... we are there to help you through this critical step.

Also, the Scenery Object Tester has been updated, a new object at position #9 (Brad's BBQ) has been added so you can make sure your new Part III library is working properly.

The new Part III Object Library is ready for download on the Object Libraries Page (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/object_libraries_build/#links).

You can get there from Misty's Place, click on the Object Library button.

Hang Em High Resorts  - by Doug Linn

Taking advantage of the new objects we have in the Part III Object Library, "Hang Em High Resorts" is now ready for download. There are two lodges, one far above on a mountaintop and a second one down below at the water level.  At the top location, there is a short and very small runway that can handle very small aircraft ("Cub size"). There is a similar small runway below ... these are very short and for ultralights and cubs only. There are helipads above and below.

On the edge of the cliff, a launcher has been placed. A tiny concrete runway that goes out over the edge of the cliff. Coming off this with an ultralight is a real thrill when the "bottom drops out" below you and suddenly you are at 3500 feet!!  You can also use the "jumping man" parachute object (discussed in the readme). You can jump off the launcher, free-fall for a while, then open your chute and land at the lower lodge. Parasails and ultralights are a lot of fun.  Also, there are animated parasail objects ... two circling above the top lodge, one "landing" at the upper helipad, and one landing at the lower helipad.  Just sitting back watching the parasails is a lot of fun.

Nearby, about halfway to the logging facility at Dora Bay, you'll find a new Brad's BBQ.  This one is on a barge that has a helipad on the back of it, a new object created by Steve Weinkamer.  You'll see this object often as we place it almost anywhere. There is a matching tug boat that can pull it around (not in this scenery package). When you go TO the location, an amphibian or float plane is necessary (unless you are flying a cub or an ultralight). The scenery package is ready for download from the Scenery Page under "H".

See a beautiful VIDEO for Hang Em High by Robert Pomerleau HERE (http://vimeo.com/116277971)   ... Don't miss it!!!

The new Part III Object Library is necessary for this scenery location.

Hollis Harbor Update Patch by Rod Jackson

This is a patch to update Hollis Harbor v1.0 to v1.1.  You need to have already installed Hollis Harbor v1.0 to use this patch. This patch does the following things at Hollis:

1. Replaces buildings at the Ferrry Landing in Hollis and the Wolf Creek Boathouse area which could be seen in FSX but not in P3Dv2

2. Replaces the ice in Hollis Harbor with ice that eliminates the problem that some users have had with trees in the water when the CVX_Hollis_Harbor_Ice.bgl was active.  For those of you who had added a .off to the ice file, just delete that file before copying this patch.  If you still don't wan't the ice to show up, you can still add an .off to the end of the reivsed CVX_Hollis_Harbor_Ice.bgl.

3. Corrects a file with missing objects that is only used by those who have ORBX PAKT installed.  Some of you will already have this correction.

4. Adds a beacon on top of the hill to the North of Hollis Island.  The frequency is 621.  The ID is HHB. The morse code is ....  ....  _ ...

New Fuel Pump at Misty's Lighthouse - By Doug Linn
 
A minor change at Misty's Place. We didn't have a fuel pump for float planes, you had to have an amphibian or wheeled aircraft to get fuel up by the "bar". Now there is s fuel pump out on the dock at the lighthouse, so it is a quick place to get a "splash" and go on your way.

RTMM Flight Plans Updated

There was a problem with the "#" flight plan from Wilson River Lodge to Misty's Place ... it would crash. That is now fixed.  "HOW TO" is in the readme ... but if you are REPLACING these files, do it SAFELY ... go to the sim's documents folder and open the flight plans.  DELETE all plans starting with # or =.  Then paste what you download into that folder, adding the new # and = files.  (If you don't do this, and you just overwrite, you will retain the errors).

The plans are found on the Here2There Page under RTMM Flight Plans.

The new trigger is placed by the maintenance building where work is being done on an aircraft.  To get this update, re-download The Last Resort.  Note on the FAQ Airport Facilities Table, table 3, you will see the McCarthy Entry there. The right hand column tells you what must be re-downloaded to get the update. This was exactly the kinds of suggestions we are looking for. It is a long way back to Anchorage for fuel!

Barnstormers by Xavier Carre' and Chris Losh

This is a redone and now re-introduced scenery location done by Xavier Carre' with some additional scenery locations by Chris Losh. We have combined these into a single rendering, so read the instructions carefully.

This is Bush Flying at its BEST! A beautiful high plateau area in British Columbia, deceivingly "simple" for navigating, and 100% capable of getting you completely LOST!

Combined, the package has over 30 locations with several new small airports. The attention to detail is excellent. Carefully go through the Readme.pdf that is enclosed in the download and you will have a good preview of what enjoyment you are going to have with this re-done, beautiful package. You can find it on the Scenery Page under "B".

Gilbert Bay Airfield and SPB - By Brad Allen and Xavier Carre'

Halibut Cove Updated to V1.1!
 
Rod Jackson has released a small patch to update Halibut Cove V1.0 to V1.1 which is now available in the RTMM Scenery Library at the end of the Halibut Cove V1.0 section.  This patch should be downloaded by everybody as it removes an undefined object at Seldovia, moves the Jonas Brothers Transport location at PAEN and now supports the payware versions of PAEN and PAHO as well as the standard PAEN and PAHO airports that come with ORBX SAK.

It is available on the Scenery Page, a "zip button" below the regular scenery buttons.

PAHO Payware (Homer) Fuel Trigger Fix - minor change

For those interested in better fuel management ... There are 3 fuel triggers at the new payware PAHO. One is under a static aircraft and so is not accessible, and the other two are against a building wall and you must nearly push the nose of the plane into the wall to get fuel. With this tiny fix, I moved the fuel trigger near the terminal over toward the fuel truck to the right, and gave it a much larger "footprint". I made larger footprints for the other two fuel triggers across the airport in the hanger area and now these are far more accessible. You can find the fix in TABLE 3 of the Airports Facilities Area at the top of the FAQ page. Look for PAHO in Table 3. Read the instructions carefully, it is an easy fix. If the author updates PAHO for the fuel triggers, we'll pull this one and link to any update they have there.

New Scenery Locations - Lynn Canal and Chilkoot Inlet Added 02.09.2015) - By Brad Allen

Lynn Canal runs about 90 miles (140 km) from the inlets of the Chilkat River south to the Chatham Strait and into the Stephens Passage. At over 2,000 feet (610 m) in depth, Lynn Canal is the deepest fjord in North America and one of the deepest and longest in the world as well. The northern portion of the canal braids into the respective Chilkat, Chilkoot, and Taiya Inlets. Lynn Canal was explored by Joseph Whidbey in 1794 and named by George Vancouver for his birthplace, King's Lynn, Norfolk, England.

Chilkoot Inlet is an inlet located on the eastern side of the Chilkat Peninsula in Lynn Canal. Chilkoot Inlet is the terminus of the Chilkoot River and its watershed, and also home to Lutak, Alaska. It was first charted in 1794 by Joseph Whidbey, master of the HMS Discovery during George Vancouver's 1791-95 expedition.

This scenery enhancement adds several locations of interest along the two main waterways near Haines Alaska and covers area between Juneau and Skagway.

Starting points are listed on the Here2There page for all locations in this package. ORBX SAK is required.

Misty Moorings DoDoSim B206 by Steve Downing

This is a repaint for the DoDoSim B206 payware helicopter-addon for FSX.

This repaint represents the fictitious B206 N040MM of Return to Misty Moorings and includes Float, Low Skid, High Skid, and Utility variants.

There are 4 variants in this update.  This update was done using a freshly install DoDoSim B206 and depends on files added during that installation.  If you do not wish to use all 4, you MUST install the textures for all 4 anyway and then just do not put entries into the aircraft.cfg for the ones you do not wish to use.

Yehiniko Lake and Airstrip Scenery created by Brad Allen

Here's a new one from Brad for the Tongass X area. Available under "Y" on the scenery page!

Yehiniko Lake is a lake located just 18.5 miles from Glenora, in the Kitimat-Stikine Regional District of British Columbia, Canada. There is a dirt airstrip that curves away uphill as you approach from the lake. Trying to land from the other approach direction is not advised here. Look for a small residence that calls this airstrip home. Hunting and fishing expeditions will use the small airstrip to drop off and pick up their clients in the warmer seasons. Fishing is good here and whether you’re fly fishing, baitcasting or spinning your chances of getting a bite here are very good. Located just north of Telegraph Creek, you'll find this to be a beautiful destination that has a nearby canyon set amongst a forest of trees that were burned down recently after a fire swept through the region.

Whistler Aerodrome and Vancouver Int'l Sea Plane Base - by Doug Linn

These are two separate packages. We will be using the Vancouver Int'l SPB for "starts" often. It was left out of ORBX PNW, so we "fixed it up" a little, gave it a fuel pump and a windsock and it's own ADEX file (so we made it an airport), and it can be used for starts for Plan-G planning and journeys. It also has a "dock" starting point.  You can download the Vancouver Int'l SPB from the Scenery Page under "V".

Whistler Mountain is a world-class ski resort area that people from all over the world come to enjoy. It is about 70 miles from Vancouver Int'l, where most people will fly into.  So if you want to experience what it would be like to getting to Whistler Mountain, you can fly to Vancouver Int'l in a commercial jet liner, then take a bus over to the Sea Plane Base there (CAM9), and fly in a float or amphibian to Whistler Aerodrome (CAE5) ... experiencing virtually the "real" trip. The scenery along the way is stunning.  There is a trip ticket (version 3), that guides you along the route and a flight-seeing flight-plan that allows you to use autopilot all the way to enjoy the scenery. (Notam: watch the altitude, you  start at 1200 feet but go to 3200 feet!).

The Whistler Aerodrome is also a "real" airport, CAE5, and we have positioned it exactly where it should be on Green Lake near the mountains. This location also has a "dock" starting point. Our rendition is better than the real one because there is a Brad's BBQ waiting for you when you arrive at the dock. This scenery works with the RTMM Season Switcher so pick your season before you fly. Also note that the lake freezes in winter ... you have to be careful not to run over the ice fishermen on the lake when landing in winter. Also you will need skis or Tundra and that will have to take of from Vancouver Int'l, NOT the SPB. (But you can still "hook up" with the flight plan easily to make the trip. You will find this scenery under "W" on the Scenery Page.

Pacific Northwest Scenery Collection by Brad Allen - Update!

We've done some minor updates to Brad's PNW Scenery Collection. Fuel Triggers were added to the fuel docks, a tree on a landing strip was cut down and is now stacked for firewood. All of the starting (mooring) points have been added to the Here2There starting points table. There are short "low and slow" flight plans for all but one of the locations which will take you deep into the scenery. The map for Mt. Kinch Ice Station has been modified. You need Owikeeno Lake to see Mt. Kinch. So the route to it now flies out of PF50, Pacific Gateway. 

We are "featuring" this scenery package on the Here2There page. If you are NEW to RTMM, this is an excellent starting package. You get many locations, they are all beautifully located and you will "feel there' when you fly the plans to the locations.

Moh Creek by Mike Broemme ... submitted by Dieter Linde

Moh Creek is located in the Strathcona Regional District  about 35 NM north of Campbell River/CYBL, British Columbia.
You have to plan a visual approach on a dirt airstrip curved like a banana. There are no nav aids available.
The airfield is basically closed but accessible on request for small land-  and seaplanes. There's a  mooring on the waterfront for tying your waterplane.
At the airfield you don't get  any aircraft maintenance or fuel. You must bring your own equipment and food.

The Moh Creek area is famous for fishing, hunting and hiking. 
Cabins can be rented for staying over night.  Some cabins are available directly at the airfield.
There are 3 other hidden cosy cabins at the end of the forest trails, transport service by car on request.
When you follow the footpath downhill  to the river you'll find a mixed sauna to relax and recover.

The best way to plan your tour is starting from Campbell River where you might stock up your fuel,  food and equipment.

You will find it under "M" on the Scenery Page.

Conversion for FSX/P3D by Mike Broemme, March 2015


This secluded location is situated at the south-western end of the Gardiner Canal, just in short distance north-west of Kitlope estuary where the river runs into the fjord.
There is a small outpost for hunters and fishermen who like the alluring wilderness, accessible by plane or boat only. The place is just equipped with the basic necessities for survival. There are two cabins, an old caravan, two sheds and even an outhouse.
The small mooring is adapted to secure your float plane.
The short dirt strip is suitable for small GA-aircrafts. Approach from water side only, no easy job for the pilot, you just have about 850 ft to stop your plane. You really fly into devil's arse...

NEW SCENERY!!  The Western Chugach Part 1 by Rod Jackson

The Western Chugach - Part 1 adds isolated enhanced areas of true-to-life scenery that begin at Mile Marker 13.5 along the Seward Highway heading North from Seward, Alaska and end at Mile Marker 46.0 which is just above the Summit Lake SPB (52Z). Isolated terrain and object enhancements along the way stretch up to 5 miles on each side of the highway and include trails, campgrounds, homes, commercial areas and the town of Moose Pass. Detailed maps of the points of interest along the highway are included.

The Western Chugach - Part 1: From Seward to Summit Lake (52Z) is the first part of a four-part scenery series that features super-detailed Alaskan wilderness scenery built on top of ORBX SAK based on real-life.

This is an amazing package that not just adds objects to the terrain, it also actually changes the terrain in places to make it even more realistic.  It is a vast area to explore. You will see two MedEvacs for this new scenery on the Medical Facilities page, and a V3 Trip Ticket is available to get you introduced to this complex package. Read the "readme pdf" very carefully, there are many details you do NOT want to miss in this package.

Look for it under "T" (The Western Chugach) on the scenery page.

ORBX PAHO Payware conflict with Halibut Cove - Temp Fix

RTMM has discovered that the ORBX PAHO payware extends its customized 5m mesh all the way into
Halibut Cove (10 miles away) which ruins the pre-existing RTMM Halibut Cove scenery custom terrain
and object placement. We have notified Alex Goff and Holger Sandmann at ORBX of this problem.
RTMM is hopeful that ORBX will create a manual patch for RTMM or an update to their Payware so it
does not encroach on our pre-existing scenery which is well outside of the ORBX PAHO documented
coverage area.

In the meantime, we have a very good workaround for our RTMM users. Simply go to ....\Prepar3D
v2 or FSX\ORBX\FTX_NA\FTX_AA_PAHO\Scenery folder and add a .off extension to the
Orbx_PAHO_mesh_5m.bgl file so that it becomes Orbx_PAHO_mesh_5m.bgl.off.
The result of turning this file off is that Halibut Cove remains the beautiful scenery it is and 99% of the
ORBX PAHO payware is displayed properly. The only significant problems to be found at Homer are
when the aforementioned file is turned off, the road from Homer spit into the airport becomes a bit
elevated and bumpy as it goes up the hill and some of objects along the road on the spit are a bit sunk
into the ground. These minor problems are not obvious unless flying right along the ground. In
addition, the RTMM Jonas Bros location at Beluga Lake is more on a cliff than before but that is not a
big deal We won't change the Jonas Bros Beluga object placements t for now in case ORBX is able to
reduce the overreach of their mesh file.

This is also posted at the Halibut Cove Scenery Download site.

Misty's Place Updated - Medical Facilities Changed

Because we had a compatibility problem with PAKT PAYWARE, we decided to deactivate the PeaceHealth Hospital and Medical Dock at Ketchikan. For people with the Payware, the hospital and dock were mis-positioned. So those now no longer "exist." A new facility has been put into Misty's Place ... the Misty's Place Trauma Center. It has the "H" helipad now, a medical dock and a road connecting it to the airport road system.  One dispatch, E010B, (Eddystone Rock), was using this facility. That dispatch has now been updated. It leaves from PAKT, and returns to the new Misty's Place Trauma Center.

At Misty's Place, you can use the land, or water dock, or "climb out" onto land with an amphibian. So it will be able to take any kind of airplane.  All of the files have been updated on the Medical Page (which changes often as we add things). But you should re-download Misty's Place from the Scenery Page to be up-to-date.

RTMM KMZ by "Rustam" (Vüqar Quliyev)

The latest KMZ file for Google Earth is now on the Here2There page, thanks to the efforts of Vüqar.  The Chugach is now included and ALL OF THE MEDICAL FACILITIES!  So now you can keep track of what Rod is creating for you in the SAK Chugach area and you can easily see the "spread" of the the Medical Facilities nicely labeled with an "H".  Thank you Vüqar!   You can find this on Here2There (http://return.mistymoorings.com/here_to_there/#kmz). (You simply download it, open the zip, (make sure Google Earth is installed) and click on the KMZ ... it goes right to RTMM). Click on any of the data points and you will get the specific information on the location. Pretty amazing!!

Update 10:26 pm ... the file can now be downloaded. Also, I put some instructions for how it can be used on the Here2There page in the Google Earth KMZ area.  You can see a screenshot of what it can do on the Medical Facilities page where we have used it to depict all of the medical facilities we have put in. You can see the "spread" of them from the map.  On the Here2There page, there is also a screenshot "how to" showing you how to use the file to get from it what you need. Again, thank you Vüqar ... much appreciated by all of us!

Minor revisions, updates ... by Doug Linn

1. Misty's Place now has a beacon.
2. PAPG has a medical facility that compliments the hospital in town and the medical dock. Aksi Fuel was added.
3. PAWG has a new medical facility at the airport, complimenting the Hospital and med dock already in place. This gives us ability to use wheeled aircraft in MedEvacs in that area.
4. Two new MedEvacs are "up" for trying ... E038B and E039B.  39B uses Tundra (and helo) for the first time, coming out of the new PAWG facility.

PAHO Update from ORBX

ORBX has issued an update for their PAHO payware that includes an adjustment in their mesh files so that RTMM's Halibut Cove is no longer adversely affected when ORBX PAHO is active.  Your FTX Central 2 utility should flag the PAHO update availability for install.  If you made the RTMM recommended  temporary adjustment to allow Halibut Cove to work while using the original version of the ORBX PAHO Payware, you should have an Orbx_PAHO_mesh_5m.bgl.off file sitting in your ...Prepar3D v2 or FSX\ORBX\FTX_NA\FTX_AA_PAHO\Scenery folder.  If you do, you do not have to do anything since the ORBX PAHO update put in a new active version of that file.   If you just want to clean up that folder then you can delete the Orbx_PAHO_mesh_5m.bgl.off file (size is 22,009 KB) since it has now been replaced.

S.I.R.P. Stikine Icefield Research Program - Re-Uploaded 05.31.2013

DESIGNER CREDITS
Original FS2004 Scenery created by "The Amigos", Bill Dick, Phil Cayton, Glenn "Woody" Fout, Doug Linn and Ed Truthan.
SIRP for FSX was created and designed by Mike Broemme.
Objects and texture adaptations for FSX and P3D by Brad Allen

Based on it's real world counterpart, the JIRP (Juneau Icefield Research Program), this scenery package places 10 isolated research camps at various locations in the vast Stikine Icefield that straddles the Alaska/British Columbia border. This area has been beautifully rendered with glacial textures and accurate land class in the Tongass X scenery package, but has often remained a rarely traversed and under appreciated region. There's a great deal of stunning wilderness scenery out there, and it's our hope that this package will provide flyers an opportunity to challenge their VFR skills while visiting some interesting ice field destinations. These camps vary from well equipped regional supply centers to lonely, wind battered outposts. In addition, all fire, smoke have been specially designed for this release in an attempt to bring a unique "arctic wilderness" feel to the scenery.

This is a beautiful piece of work by Mike Broemme who spent hours on this re-creating the original concepts to the new FSX/P3D format. Our special thanks to Mike for this impressive piece of work. Special thanks also to Dieter Linde for alerting us to this entry and to Brad Allen who spent many hours "blending" FSX and P3D objects to work for both. This is a major addition to RTMM.

S.I.R.P. is a legacy for RTMM as it was a crown jewel of the original "Misty Moorings" website. One person who spent many hours on the original project has passed on, Bill Dick. So we post this in remembrance of our old and always friend, Bill.

Wood Lake Research Camp is now available for FSX/P3D!

Though Wood Lake Research Camp has been available in the RTMM Scenery Library for almost two weeks, we realized that we never announced its availability.  This beautiful scenery is based on the old "Glacier Bay version 2" for FS2004 from 2007 and  brings back some nostalgic memories. "Wood Lake Research Station" was part of Glacier Bay and has been updated to be usable in both Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D.

Wood Lake Research Station/Rusty's Airfield was  originally created and designed  by Jay Langham as part of  Holger Sandmann's "Glacier Bay version 2" for FS2004 in March 2007.  Rusty's Airfield now is a standalone scenery converted for FSX (with Acceleration) or  P3D by Mike Broemme.  RTMM would like to extend special thanks to Dieter Linde who uses his German to English translation skills to facilitate bringing Mike Broemme's work to RTMM.

Wood Lake Research Camp  is located in Glacier Bay National Park, Hoonah-Angoon County, Alaska  about 26 miles northwest of Gustavus in a designated wilderness area.  ORBX SAK is required to use this scenery.

Wood Lake Research Camp features:

- New ground textures created and adjusted  to fit into FSX/P3D geography
- Some former FS9 objects converted into native FSX objects, related textures compiled into .dds format
- Some missing FS9 objects replaced by similar ones (using the RTMM libraries and FSX standard objects)
- New effects for smoking chimneys
- Different wildlife animal sounds during day and night according to the nature's ambience
- A  newly created Airport AFCAD (PAWL) so the user can choose the airfield directly from FSX/P3D
- Seasonal files that use the RTMM Season Switcher.

Thanks Mike Broemme for sharing your scenery conversion talent with us!  See pictures below.

Home Page Update and Getting Started Page

The Home Page for RTMM has been revised. The "right rail" now has links to "everywhere" in RTMM so people can browse the site if they are newcomers, and for our regulars, this is an easy way to get "everywhere" on the site. The wording on the body has been simplified and designed to help people understand what RTMM is, what is basically needed, helping them Explore (while not getting lost), and of course pointing them to the new Getting Started page.

I've made the "Getting Started" page simple on purpose.  If we can get people to register on the forum as their first step in this journey, we can help them through this process. Hopefully the new page gets people pointed in this direction. So be watching for the new folks on the forums and be ready to jump in and help them as usual.

Alaska Power Project Update

Several new locations have been added to the Alaska Power Project. This is a joint effort of Thomas Menzel and Doug Linn in an effort to put in the presently-operating hydroelectric plants in the RTMM area as well as depictions of the ones that are "proposed." The page is still in "beta" so don't expect it to be error free (and if you see an error, let us know). Although we have tried to make the scenery fun for float planes and amphibians, this scenery set is especially interesting for helicopter pilots. There are many "elevations" for each site and we have placed helipads in many places. To see the latest, go to the "APP" page ... HERE (http://return.mistymoorings.com/alaska_power_project/index.php).

Odds 'N Ends ...

Misty's Place - A boat dock was added near the medical dock. This for boat traffic (it can take something as large as the DeltaSim Gimini Pro. You can use it as a starting position, save it, then dock your boat at Misty's Place. You can use the channel to get out to Bostwick Inlet.  Also put a navigation tower on a small island that is difficult to see as you are rounding the Northern Bostwick Point. There is also a spit of land that I placed a couple of trees on so you can see it.

The Alaska Power Project - This is coming along nicely. As you will see from the construction log, we are making changes when problems are encountered. But almost everything is "up to date". Thomas is working on Tyree Hydro and Doug is starting on Triangle Lake (a proposed site). This is a MUST for helicopter pilots, we are placing many maintenance pads into the scenery and there are some interesting elevations for these.

The Moorings - we found (Marcel) a great FS2004 gauge that works in P3D and FSX for an autopilot for a boat. We are exploring what we can do with this, but to date, it is working VERY well.  We are able to have a boat track a Plan-G "flight" (Sail) plan perfectly.  Presently we are looking at freeware boats that we can make "pilotable".  You can follow the discussions at "The Moorings" on the forum. The autopilot opens up a whole new vista for us for boating. We will be revising "The Moorings" page as we make progress.

Swan Lake Hydro was a fictional site, it has been deleted because a new "real" proposed site will be placed there that has a "lake tap" system (no dam). If you have Swan Lake, I suggest you delete it. (Also, for later reference, Thomas is making a "Swan Lake Hydro" that is a REAL facility down toward Wrangell. Do not get confused and delete that one ... The New Swan Lake Hydro will be 'inside" the zip for the Alaska Power Project. The Swan Lake I deleted was a separate download.

Tezwa River Ranch by Brad Allen and Mike Broemme.

Here's one you won't want to miss. Brad Allen has given us Tezwa River Ranch, partnering with our friend Mike Broemme who adapted the whole ranch terrain to fit with FSX/P3D and designed the multi-seasonal airstrip. This one is as real as it gets. Lots of animation and an absolutely beautiful place to visit.  Here's the description for it:

The Tezwa River makes it's way through the Kitlope Heritage Conservancy and is protected by the Kitimat Ranges of the Coast Mountains in British Columbia, Canada. It is part of the Kitlope River system and sits inside the largest continuous tract of coastal temperate rainforest in the world. Beginning at the head of Gardner Canal, the park stretches inland along the Kitlope River to the border of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park. The "Haisla" first nation tribe have lived in the Kitlope area for centuries, perhaps thousands of years. Their ancient title to their aboriginal territory has never been surrendered or extinguished. Hereditary clans of this nation are Beaver, Raven, Eagle,and Black Fish (Orca). This location features a secluded riverside ranch and dirt airstrip that awaits visitors and opens up this scenic river valley for adventure and exploration.

You will find it on the Scenery Page under "T".

Tezwa River Ranch - Version 1.2 (Update)

Brad sent us this update for the seasonal files that come with Tezwa River Ranch. Issue: Seasonal files included in the archive were incorrect. Cause: "Fall" was incorrectly set as the active default season and it should be "noseason" as the default. Affect: Users who make their season selections using our "RTMM Season Switcher" utility change initially from noseason to their preferred season. If no seasonal switcher utility is being used, then without this update, fall season would've been displayed. This issue is now corrected by removing the previous installation of this location from the simulator and replacing it with this version being installed.

New Google Earth KMZ file for Return to Misty Moorings - by Vüqar Quliyev

Once more "VQ" has done another marvelous job updating the Google Earth KMZ file for RTMM. This time he has added all of the power plants from the new Alaska Power Project.

If you have not tried this yet (shame on you!), you really need to stop what you are doing and give it a try, it is totally amazing. If you have Google Earth on your computer, when you click on the file, Google earth comes up and zooms in on the RTMM area.  Look in the list on the left rail and you will see many of the RTMM locations. Look, in this case, particularly at the Alaska Power Project and click only that box.  The map now shows ONLY the Hydro Plants. LEFT click on one and watch the magic happen. Vuqar has done this for all of our locations. This is an excellent piece of work and I so hope everyone is taking advantage of it. You can find it on the Alaska Power Project page or on the Here2There web page.

Thank you Vuqar!

Alaska Power Project is officially OPEN!

The Alaska Power Project is now ready for download and usage. The location set includes 16 real and proposed hydroelectric plants. Each location has two parts, the upper reservoir area and the lower plant/outfall area. We have placed these exactly where they are already operating or are proposed (under construction). So the realism is true for all of them. Each has a minimum of two and sometimes four helipads at different levels based on the plant's configuration. There are also float plane dock for all of them ant the reservoirs and most at plant level.

There are maintenance dispatches for helicopters and float planes. These guide you to the plants and the surrounding facilities. For float planes, that cannot "tour" the facility at low altitudes, we have incorporated a special "slew/view" tour. You park your float plane at the dock, the go into slew mode to tour the facility. When finished, you put in the ICAO for the plant and it's startup point and use Go To Airport and it puts you exactly where you were when you began your slewing tour, so you can then realistically fly off to the next location. There are also scenic flight tours ... tours at higher levels that would give a tourist a view of the plants from 1200 feet altitude.

You will need the RTMM Libraries (See the Object Library Page). To install, there are two zip folders to download and install. One for the APP facilities (all locations in the same folder), and a second one for the special library objects that are included with the project. Instructions for installation are in the zip folders.

You can find the RTMM Page and a beautiful 2 minute video giving you an overview of the project here:
http://return.mistymoorings.com/alaska_power_project/index.php

All locations have their own ICAO code with startup points for easy navigation and for locating the plants on your aircraft's GPS. Just put in the ICAO and follow the GPS to the plant.

This is a "physically correct" scenery. We had to take special care to alter the terrain to support water flowing from the upper reservoir down to the plant sites. So a great deal of "mechanical detail" is built into the design of these.

We hope you enjoy the RTMM FREEware we are offering you. Please drop by our forum and discuss the project or any other RTMM activities.

Maloney's Tavern  - New Scenery Location

(Update ... if you downloaded this ... be sure ou download it again and re-nstall, then follow the instructions. a slight change in the naming of the bushes for global/scenery.)

Maloney's Tavern was originally created by Urs Burkhardt for FS2004 in April 2005. Urs has given permission to redesign his former scenery.Terrain adjustment, scenery/objects conversion and positioning for FSX or P3D by Mike Broemme, November 2015.

Maloney's Tavern/CBMT is a fictional area just 20 miles southeast of Stewart/CZST situated at the end of Hastings Arm Fjord at the mouth of Kshwan River. Here you find  a tiny settlement  and a  2600 ft grass/sand dirtstrip. This airfield is privately owned but open to the public. No landing fees charged. Maloney's Tavern itself is famous for serving finest American Rye Whiskeys and mouthwatering steaks. Of course you will get a fresh beer here. Small outpost offices of PNW Backcountry Pilots, Hardy Aviation, Alaska Sky Service and Bush Pilots Airlines are on site. A small hangar capacity for light aircraft maintenance on your own management  is usable. Equippment and tools are on hand.  Standard types of oil and lubrications can be purchased. Fuel is not in stock. There are several cabins for rent and a mixed sauna is in use. An old seaplane dock and a ramp for amphibs are available. ("to be used at pilot's own risk")

A visit is well worth for those who like the charme of an old style village or exploring an untouched nature landscape. Kshwan River is an ideal habitat for various fish species, a paradise for anglers. Also hunters will get their money's worth. Be aware, there's a grizzly bear in area who seems to be accustomed to humans. Caution is always called regardless, he's still a wild animal. He usually "inspects" the area twice a day looking for food. So put your garbage in the receptacles intended for that purpose. Visitors should pay particular attention to the yellow bear warning signs. Every two hours  a  Forest Ranger takes a ride in his Jeep, checking the area for bears, updating the warning signs and give hints to big city dwellers who are not familiar with behavior in the wilderness.

NOTAM: Read the Instructions CAREFULLY, there is one small difference for putting in "hard winter" bushes.

Avalanche Scenario for Snettisham - By Thomas Menzel

An excellent addition has been made to the Alaska Power Project ... an avalanche scenario. In 2008, there was a destructive avalanche near the Snettisham Hydro Plant that knocked out their transmission lines. It happened in the winter season. In the spring, they repaired it.

If you redownload the APP library and the APP zip (both at the top of the APP page), you will have the latest. Always play it safe and delete the old folder and then add the new one.

When the season switcher is set to WINTER ... you will see the Avalanche and the destruction. When the season switcher is set to SPRING ... you will see the cleanup and reconstruction crews working to fix the problem. Everything will be "as is" and "ok" in SUMMER and FALL.

At the scenery location for Snettisham on the APP page, you will see a button that will show you how to install this manually (if you don't use the season switcher) and another button that gives you the documentation on the 2008 Avalanche. This is fascinating reading and recommended so you will better understand the size of the disaster and recovery efforts.

This is a great new addition by Thomas, and a very unique way to use the season switcher.

New, Updated Global Earth KMZ file

Vuqar "Rustam" Quliyev has updated the KMZ file for Google Earth. If you have not tried this yet, you really should, if you want to drill down to specific things to look for in RTMM locations, this will help you do that and create a map of all of the facilities you are looking for. He has now included the Vancouver North Island locations that Brad made for us.  Look for the new file on the Here to There page. Put the KMZ on your desktop, click on it and the RTMM world is laid out for you perfectly.

Our special thanks to Vugar ... RTMM, and the community, appreciates this fine extra effort.

Thank you, Rustam.

Update:   The original folders for Bear Observatory and Yes Bay have been put back online. Some did not feel the waterfalls were a problem, so we will leave them in. If you have P3D 3.1 as I do, be sure to put in the different waterfall effect. The waterfall effect for P3D is in: RTMM Required Object LibrariesFSXP3D Part II_1-7-15 found on the Object Library Page.


Bear Observatory Update

I am "flying" all of the flight plans. I am updating the flight plans where there are problems trying to make all of the autopilot friendly. While flying these, when I find problems, I'll be fixing them. At the Bear Observatory, the "gen_waterfall" object was "misting" out about a quarter mile, you couldn't see the scenery there. I eliminated the waterfalls and the scenery is now much better.  If you download the zip on the scenery page, Bear Observatory is Updated. 

Yes Bay Lodge Update

The "Gen_waterfall" objects were taken out of the stream, replaced by the "fog" object.

Updated Flight Plans

I am also "updating" the flight plans for RTMM and the USFS Cabins. I've finished the "A's" and the RTMM Flight Plans.zip is now updated. (It is on the Here 2 There page).

1. I'm flying all of the autoroutes in the "RTMM Flight Plans.zip" file. I've updated them up through the letter "D". I've added Dean River, which had a trip ticket, but no to/from flight plan. New "RTMM Flight Plans.zip" is available. (Please ... Delete any # or = flight plans in your documents area BEFORE adding these.)

2. Smoke was fixed at Medical Center at Dean River

3. Whole new Industrial area put in at Ocean Falls also with smoke. (Some buildings were missing)

4. Doug's Outfitters, water tower "grounded" (was in the air).

Most of these are too small for you to worry about re-downloading. Ocean Falls has some major changes and probably should be updated ... new industrial depicted below.

RTMM Flight Plans.zip updated through "Kennekott".  I have changed many of the plans as they were a bit boring coming out of the same airports. So I've added new starts and new positioning to make them more interesting. The one for Jedway Base is particularly beautiful ... also a copy of the flight up on Twitch.

Please, again ... if you are changing the flight plans, TAKE OUT ALL OF THE # and = plans first ... delete them, then put in the new # and = plans. I've changed the names on many of these and they will not overwrite, they will duplicate.

Snow Dog's Tour #1 - Scenery and tour available(s)

Norm Richards of Alaska Adventures has worked alongside RTMM on creating this journey and if you're a pilot at "Alaska Adventures" Virtual Airline then you'll be able to gain access to this tour through the Pilot Tours section over at Alaska Adventures. Once you're signed up as a member that is. For Return to Misty Moorings users, this scenery will be accessible on the "Scenery" page at RTMM under "S". At the present time, there will be a total of four of these tours under the RTMM/AKA partnership so look for more of these tours coming in the near future.

If you like cross country, you will love these tours. You will see some areas of Alaska that RTMM has not previously covered.  We will be looking forward to the next three tours with Alaska Adventures.

They have a beautifully repainted fleet HERE (http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showthread.php?246676-Alaska-Adventures)  (You must Register at Avsim)

Updates from Dieter for Plan-G datapoints

Dieter has sent us two csv files that add the cabins in the Boya Lake Area and also add the "Cabins by the Lakes" cabins by Brad Allen.  You can download these csv files from Misty's Place/Dieter's Corner HERE (http://return.mistymoorings.com/mistys/#dieter).  Open Plan-G, go to the "Data" tab, Go to "Manage".  Then select "import" down at the bottom. Point the computer at the downloaded CSV files and your Plan G will be updated.

When you go to the above web page and location, look at all of the CSV files there.  If you don't have them, you should download all of them. Then just do as above for all of the files. It really makes Plan-G come alive with way points and locations.

Thank you Dieter!!!

Updates on the AutoRoutes Project

I have completed checking all flight plans in the RTMM Flight Plans.zip file through the letter "U".  Remember if you are going to download the new file, you must first delete ALL flight plans you already have starting with a # or an =.  PLEASE DELETE THESE FIRST. Almost all of the flight plans have been renamed in one way or another and if you do not delete these first, you will mix in the old with the new and never get them separated!

As we are coming through the flight plans, in the name you may see ...

USFS ... a USFS cabin, from ORBX, Tongass X or "The Missing Cabins" file.
RTMM ... an RTMM location that needs to be downloaded from the RTMM Scenery Page
CIRP ... an ice station file that needs to be downloaded from the CIRP page.

If you see a number, it is altitude in feet. This is the highest altitude of the flight plan that will keep you about 1200 feet above the highest point in the flight. You do not have to fly the entire route at that altitude, but sometime during the flight, you will need to be at that altitude.

The physical location changes are as follows:

#     /   Location     /   What is Fixed         / File to be updated

1     /  PP15 Airport / Whole SPB was moved / Alaska Power Project
2     /  The Landings at Alistair Lake / campfire and trees in a stream / The landings @ Alistair Lake
3     /  Thumb Harbour   / Fuel pump on dock had light circle under it, exchanged it for new/Thumb Harbour
4     / Totem Bight / picnic table moved from covering chair on the island / Totem Bight Operations

As we do this, many of the flight plans are changed to give better starting positions (trying to eliminate water runway starts), starting instead at docks. Also, often the approach for landing has been changed to make it easier for a new sim pilot.  Few of these flight plans will match the flight plans posted with the scenery location on the Scenery page or on The Cabins page.

Title: Re: NOTAMs and NEWs Thread
Post by: Doug on March 20, 2016, 06:41:08 PM
Completion of the AutoRoutes Project - Summary

All flight plans have been FLOWN, CHECKED, and ADJUSTED.
1. More interesting starts
2. Safer routing for autopilot (for the new pilots among us)
3. Flight Plan "Altitude +1200" added to any plan over 1200 feet (Default is 1200 feet)
4. Aircraft type added to plan name if tundra, or helo only. (Default is amphibian)
5. Readme completed and inserted into the RTMM FLIGHT PLANS.ZIP folder
    a. Instructions on getting started with RTMM using the flight Plans
    b. Quick instruction on how to install an RTMM scenery (Misty's Place Example)
    c. Discussion on the flight plan names and designators
6. Over 100 corrections (minor) made with IS3 throughout the course of the project, all in Notams
7. Flight Plan Names all show USFS, RTMM, CIRP, or (rarely) PFJ or SAK.  People then know from the flight   plan name where they can get the download.  This is all explained in the README.

Next I'll work on the "getting started" page. This will include the new scenario of using the RTMM FLIGHT PLANS.zip as the template for getting started at RTMM.  Almost 70% of the flight plans are USFS cabins and when a new person downloads "The Missing Cabins" and has ORBX SAK and ORBX PFJ and Tongass X ... s/he will have 70% of all RTMM routed locations on their simulator when the RTMM FLIGHT PLANS.ZIP is downloaded and installed.  If people then use the list of alphabetical flight plans, they can start flying immediately and when they encounter an RTMM or CIRP, they will know that location must be downloaded just as they downloaded Misty's Place (in the example).  So instead of looking at the huge task of downloading all the RTMM software, they just download it as they encounter it.  And if they do not want to download any RTMM, then they simply fly the USFS flight plans.  The whole object of this is to get a new person in the air over RTMM as quickly as possible.

After 6 years and FSX, DX10, P3D-1, P3D-2 and P3D-3 ... there were bound to be some little things wrong here and there. There were surprisingly few considering the technology changes in the software.   But now we know all locations are OK, all flight plans to and from them are safe and workable, and we have a far easier way for people to get started with RTMM.

There are 830 TO and FROM flight plans.  This seems like a great number to download.  Actually, they download in seconds (tiny files), and install with a simple copy/paste. All of them start with a # or a = which keeps them all in the same grouping together.  Your other flight plans will be below these in the Flight Planner list.  If you want to remove them, you simply select # or = and delete them. You can always re-download them.

The only scenery location change is Misty's Place.  I created new starts which will make starting at Misty's Place, which we do often, more interesting. There is a "dock" start now too. So if you are using a boat or a float plane, you have a good starting point.  The only thing changed in the Misty's Place folder was the ADEX that changed and updated the starting places.  I recommend a new download on Misty's Place so you will have the latest.

Remember, you have to re-create the database for Plan-G for something new like that to show up. If you are downloading all of the csv files (From Dieter ... Dieter's Corner, Misty's Place Page), you can use the new zip folder that Spud has created for you, making the 'import" very easy.  But again, once imported, you have to re-do the Plan-G database for things to show correctly.

If you download Misty's and Spud's csv compilation, you can just re-do the Plan-G one time and get it all done at once.

Thanks to everyone for their patience on this project ... sorry about the changes along the way, but now we have a "clean" install for every location.  You can go through the NOTAMs to see what scenery locations you might want to download and re-install to be "perfectly" up to date.

Cape Spencer Light - Enhanced (By Doug Linn)

There is an interesting lighthouse that comes with SAK. It has a fine helipad, but unless you are a heli pilot, you'll not be able to land near this great lighthouse. I've put a small dock and a lodging on the little island so you can now get to it by float plane (amphibian) or by boat using the flight plan included. You start at the dock in Elfin Bay.

Glacier Bay Tours - Ready for Download

The new Glacier Bay Tours is ready for download. This is a collection of 38 tiny scenery locations, one on each of the glaciers all with matching GPS way points.  This utilizes several of the small airports in the area, including the beautiful Woods Lake Research Center (downloaded separately under "W" on the Scenery Page). We didn't have a good reason to fly there .... we do now! (Thank you Dieter and Mike Broemme).

Basically, you will use Plan-G and Dieter's "gold stars" that he placed for the names of all of the glaciers. I placed the scenery location right under the star, So using the Plan-G for that area, the stars are the locations of the scenery.  Documentation is in the zip file.

AutoRoute Renaming

All of the RTMM AutoRoute Plans have been renamed, taking the # and the = out of the prefixes and adding "To " and "From " in replacement. This makes all of our plans compatible with both Plan G and VFR FlightPlan. If you are using these, delete all files you have starting with # or =. Then paste the contents of the new RTMM Flight Plans.zip folder into that area. DO NOT OVERWRITE, Delete and Replace.  The Here2There web page was changed in the RTMM Flight Plans area to reflect this change as was the readme in the RTMM Flight Plans.zip.

New "Misty Colors" Repaints by Klaus Troeppner for the Aerosoft Beaver

Well, it was about time we put a paint job on the old Beavers, they were getting a little rusty. When I saw the beautiful job Klaus did with our new BWEP repaings (coming soon), I had to ask he he could give the Misty Beavers a fresh coat ... and he did!  With excellence. You can download the new paint scheme on the Enhancements page, go to repaints and scroll down, you'll find the picture below ... click on it.

Thank you Klaus!!

Bronson Creek Adjustments ... by Doug

The moving (digging) equipment at the end of the runway was submerged into the ground.

GPS 500 Basic Tutorial

Several people have asked questions about the GPS 500. Many folks beginning with RTMM find they need some help with understanding how the GPS 500 from Garmin works. I've created a basic tutorial for folks so they will better understand the operation of the "gauge."

You can find it on the FAQ page under "G" for GPS.

NEW - RTMM's "GoTo" Interactive Table ...

The new interactive table for all our flight plans, triptics, individual and group locations is [basically] finished and ready for usage by the community. You can find the new table HERE (http://return.mistymoorings.com/here2there_table/index.php).

The RTMM Flight Plans.zip on the Here2There page will match what is on this new table. We have most of the locations listed and all of the active flight plans we have (going "to" ... not "reversed") are present on the table.

If you only have one of the ORBX scenery areas, ...example Tongass X, you can search for TFX and all the locations you can download will be listed for you in alphabetical order. You can do this for any ORBX area so you can now see all of the locations we have put in for each area.

If you are deciding to fly out of Misty's Place this week, you can search for Misty's Place and all of the associated flights coming out of there will be listed for you. You can do the same with any airport by putting in the name or the ICAO code.

If you are looking for short flights or long ones, you can click on the "NM" (Nautical Miles) column and it switches from "low to high" to "high to low" ... so you can pick the shortest flights or the longest ones.

If you are looking for a "guided tour-type flight", search for TripTix and all of those will come up for you. You can sort these by clicking on the header for any column.

For those of you looking for a good flight, pick the "area", then click on the "map" links for any you might be interested in flying. Each will pop up a map to show you what to expect on the flight.

Next Steps ...

We have many "orphans" that I will be adding to the Flight Plans and to the Table. Brad's Vancouver Project has several locations, each will be added and have a flight plan. There are many Brad's BBQ's that we use as starting points for Boat Trips ... but these will all have flight plans TO them.  So there is still a lot of work to do. And if you see an "orphan" .... let us know and we'll bring it into the table.

Klutina Outfitters by Doug Linn and Steve Weinkamer

This is a fictional lodge and camping area at the eastern end of Klutina Lake, above Valdez. The flight plan takes you from Valdez Pioneer PAVD up over the Valdez Glacier behind Valdez and down to the valley ending at Klutina Lake. This is an excellent salmon fishing area.

The scenery has the RTMM Season Switcher capabilities. All four seasons are represented. There is an airstrip for wheeled aircraft and plent of water landing space for the float planes. In the winter and spring, the lake is frozen. (Be careful not to run over the ice fishermen on the lake).

Now available on the scenery page.

Lake Louise Lodge - New for BWEP Area

NOTAM: This is a scenery location for the BWEP area. That means you will need Global/Vector to see it correctly.

Lake Louise Lodge is ready for download. This is a "real" location about 30 miles west of Paxson.  It has two airports, one is Z55 and the other is 13S which is a water landing.  We tried to place the lodge and surrounding area as close as we could get using Google Earth.  There are other cabins and a Brad's BBQ along the south shore of the lake as you head from the lodge to the airport.

This one has a season switcher ... so if you are using it, remember, the "seasons" in this area are a little different than in the rest of the world. You need to use the following:

Winter: November, December, January, February, March
Spring: April, May
Summer: June, July, August
Fall: September, October

So if it "November" ... you set the season switcher on WINTER and set the Simulator on WINTER. Both have to be set correctly.

SEASON SWITCHER - NOTAM (Updated!)

Many people are having a problem setting up the Season Switcher. The problem is because the seasons we are flying in the far north are not exactly the same as the rest of the world!  When you use the season switcher, you must not rely on your computer's automatic date to select the season for you. You must MANUALLY select the SEASON to match the month you are flying (see the table below).  Note that the table may change for the location. Here is an example from Lake Louise.

=======================================
Season Switcher Settings for Lake Louise Area

      Month         Switcher Recommendation
 
      January        Winter
      February      Winter
      March          Winter
      April             Spring
      May             Spring
      June            Summer
      July             Summer
      August        Summer
      September  Fall
      October       Fall
      November   Winter
      December   Winter

The season switcher is set based on the table in the scenery documentation and the month set on your computer.

Examples: If your computer is set to October, then for this scenery location, you set the season switcher to "FALL." If your computer is set to November, you would set the Season Switcher to "Winter".
=========================================

From the emails I'm getting, folks are relying on the computer's "date" to set the season rather than changing the season MANUALLY to match the month.  It can be confusing, but if you do 1,2 and 3 above, it will work just fine. This is an excellent and unique program for RTMM.

Lake Louise Lodge ... with AI Floatplanes! - By Doug Linn and Dex Thomas

Here is a new scenery addition for you in the Global Base/Global Vector area (B/V). This is an adjunct to the BWEP project.  As the pipeline moves north, I'll be creating locations "off to the side" of the pipeline to give folks some things to do besides count the rivits on the pipeline!

Lake Louise Lodge is "real". Yes, there really is such a place: http://www.lakelouiselodge.com/index.htm  This sure looks like one I would like to visit.  Our rendition to it is as close as we could get with our objects and with the help of Google Earth placement.  There are two other cabin areas on nearby points and a Brad's BBQ. There is a nearby airstrip Z55 and a float plane base 13S.  These were already in the ORBX scenery.  I have added buildings to the airport.

Dex Thomas has added a great float plane package to this with two planes that land and take off regularly from two different starting points. This adds a lot of life to the package.

This package, including the float planes, uses the RTMM Season Switcher. Please read the "readme" carefully to be sure to set your sim's date to the correct season.

Just remember ... we are OUTSIDE of ORBX SAK ... we are in the Global Vector area. So you must have that software or things just will not be correct.

Enjoy the new location!

Landmark Gap Resort - (An addition for BWEP)

Here is a fictional resort about 15 miles west of Paxson. This one has a bush airstrip and is on a lake for water landings. This is located on Landmark Gap Lake at the foot of the Amphitheater Mountains. A great stop over place between Klutina and 5BK (Black Rapids).  You can download the scenery now and it will work with Global Vector. When Brad finishes the Richardson Highway segment of BWEP, we will have several of these "off-the-beaten-path" locations to fly to as well as flying along the pipeline itself. We will be making dispatches out to these, etc.

This lodge works with the Season Switcher and Dex has give it AI traffic.  In the winter, a ski plane lands, in the spring, summer and fall, a float plane lands. 

As we move north, the winter darkness and short daylight hours begin to set in. So for all of these I am paying a lot of attention to the lighting. All of the little strips will have the red flashers to show you where the runway is. If you are flying real time, sure as there is or is not sunshine, you will find yourself flying toward dusk or even at night, so the red flashers will help you locate on the runway. This is a new object Steve has made for us ... and the "light" stays with the "object" at altitude. I like it because you can see it from a fairly good distance. But be sure to look at these new locations at "dusk" to see the lighting. We are using the new lighting fixtures that Steve has made giving a pool of light under the fixture.

Landmark Gap Resort is "ready."

New Repaints from RTMM - by Klaus Troeppner and Thomas Menzel

Klaus has given us "ski" versions for the BWEP Aerosoft planes (BWEP REPAINTS PAGE) and for the new Green Misty Moorings planes (ENHANCEMENTS/REPAINTS). Since we are "going north" ... we needed the ski planes. When you download the zip for each of these, you get all four models ... wheel, tundra, amphibian and now ski.

Klaus has also given us the repaint for the CERA 212 (Payware) helicopter. You can download that also from the BWEP Repaints page.

Thomas Menzel has given us his first repaint for BWEP for the Basler 67, a freeware plane you really should look at. It is a turbine powered DC3-type aircraft. A lot of fun to fly. Thomas has given us a beautiful rendition of the BWEP Ski version.

The Lodge at Black Rapids is now OPEN for business.

This is another in the continuing series of locations that are being placed "along" the BWEP pipeline route. When BWEP Richardson Highway comes out (soon), you will see the pipeline going across the back of the lodge property.

This location comes with the RTMM Season Switcher capabilities. New objects were created by Steve Weinkamer and Dex Thomas has added his magic putting AI Aircraft, floats and ski, out on the water in front of the Dock Store of the lodge.

We tried to make this as real as we could. We did add a couple of fictitious elements to make it more fun for our simming community. There is an airstrip, a helipad and a dock so we can handle all of our aircraft niches. To see the real lodge, and make this experience even more realistic, we suggest you go to the website for "The Lodge at Black Rapids".  They have a great website with a lot of information on the lodge and roadhouse.

Our special thanks to the management at The Lodge at Black Rapids for giving us permission to use their website pictures to make this a more realistic location for your enjoyment. You can contact them at: 877-825-9413 | 907-388-8391 or make reservations through their website listed above.

You will need Global Base and Global Vector for this scenery location. Although the real name of the facility is "The Lodge at Black Rapids" ... for our scenery library, etc, we are giving it a file name of "Black Rapids Lodge" so look under "B" on the Scenery page.

This locations works only with Global Base and Global Vector. Also, be sure to download and install the latest BWEP OBjects library (on the BWEP page) and don't foget to install the EFFECTS included in that library.

Get ready for BWEP Richardson Highway ... it is (almost) in the mail!  It is going out this morning to the RTMM team for a final check.  To get ready for it, be sure to add the latest BWEP Object Library.

   FSXP3D WH_BWEP Objects_SW   1/3/2017   ---  download from the BWEP page

   Remember: when you replace libraries, because you have deleted it in your Sim's Scenery library doesn't mean it is deleted from your computer. You should always delete old libraries if they are not used.

Steve has combined the two TEMP libraries (Medical and Alaska Power Project APP) into a single object library.

  RTMM Medical and APP Libraries FSXP3D 1-6-17 --- download from the Object Library Page.

   Go into your sim.
   Go to Scenery Library
   Disable the old RTMM Medical TEMP object library
   Disable the old RTMM APP TEMP object library
   Add the new RTMM Medical and APP Libraries FSXP3D 1-6-17

BWEP: Richardson Highway and Bell 222 BWEP Repaint!

At last and after a lot of pipe-laying and hours of work, BWEP Richardson Highway is ready for download. This is a very complex segment having many "pieces" and things to see.

FIRST OF ALL ...  sure you have the latest BWEP Objects Library (at the top of the BWEP Installation Table on the BWEP Page).

There are two new RTMM airports included in this package, PF57, Donnelly Dome and PF58 BWEP Executive Field.  You will find both are exceptionally well done. There is a new corporate office building at the PF58 site, this is where the BWEP "brass" will run the company. There is a helipad on the roof of the corporate office building and of course the small airfield there for the corporate planes to ferry folks to and from the executive offices.

We have "updated" all of the airports along the way (See the new Master Map on the BWEP Page). So most have medical complexes that we can use for dispatches and all have BWEP facilities. There was a lot of extra work done at PAFA (Fairbanks). There is a medical center there and a BWEP operations complex that can handle fixed wing, heli and float aircraft.

Dex's BWEP Fairbanks Floatplanes file comes alive at Fairbanks with water traffic. Download this from the Installation table on the BWEP Page. (Note this works with the season switcher, so if you are set to NO SEASON ... you will not see the AI floats and skis).

Klaus has given you a new Bell 222 (Exec chopper) repaint so you'll be able to ferry the BWEP company execs safely to almost anywhere up and down the pipeline. It is ready to download from the repaints section of BWEP. This is a beautiful aircraft inside and out.

Remember also there are 3 "locations" that are "near" the pipeline that you can visit (you will find them on the installation page).

Again, as we go north, be ready to do a lot of flying in dusk and darkness. The days are short, and some, in the winter, have very low light. We are accommodation this by adding great lighting at all the airports with Steve's new "light pool" floodlights and street lights.  We are also giving you some red flashers at both ends of the runways to help you line it up for that landing.

The weather also plays a key role in the pipeline inspection and dispatches. You are flying low and slow, but the altitude of the ground is increasing as we go north, so the clouds are "coming down".  Be ready for a whiteout condition now and them. This can be some white-knuckle flying.

We'll be making more dispatches for this section as time goes on. As you fly it, if you have an idea for a dispatch, add your idea at the BWEP thread on the forum, we'll look into it.

Congratulations to the team for one fine effort getting this one out the door. Special thanks to Brad who is laying all the pipe ... section by section ... and he's halfway to Deadhorse!

BWEP Update - New Downloads (updates)

Previously I mentioned there is a new BWEP Object Library (top of the BWEP Installation Table). The latest edition of this is 1/25/2017. Many of the Snow Dog Tours objects (signs, etc) have been moved into this library and out of the Snow Dogs download (which is now changed, with a new readme stating the BWEP Objects folder is necessary). If you already have snow dog tours and you get the new BWEP Object Library installed, it is seamless, you don't have to re-download Snow Dog Tours.

Richardson Highway has been updated 1/25/2017.  This did some maintenance work on a bridge going over a river where there was no road. Also, all of the airports in the BWEP Richardson Highway segment of the pipeline have been updated with the new approach lighting created by Steve Weinkammer. (And this was HOURS of work on Steve's part to give us these new objects).

There is a new dispatch, P014E that you can now use. You will need to download the latest RTMM Dispatches.zip file (on the BWEP page).

So a new flight plan for it is in the RTMM Flight Plans.zip folder (02.05.2017).  The Doug's Outfitters scenery package was also updated.

Roadside Cabin - By Ryan Padgett

Another great scenery location from Ryan. This one a short flight from Sewell Airstrip (an RTMM location) to a road or water landing at a special place. Excerpt of readme:

The Roadside Cabin was originally owned by Noel Ruiz, a Canadian airline pilot, as his spot to go when he was off-schedule from flying big jetliners around the world. Eventually, after flying for many years, he retired with a large sum of money and lots of free time. He sold his house in Sandspit and moved full time to his cabin. A while later, he built a larger house near the original cabin and lived there. The log cabin fell into disuse for a while, until Noel decided he should do something with it. Noel wanted to keep the cabin for himself since he owned it for so long, but he didn't like to see it slowly rotting away into the earth. After some time searching, some misty moorings pilots found out about his dilemma and offered to repair his cabin if their group of pilots could stay there. Noel agreed, and the cabin was rebuilt for our pilots to stay.

Port Refugio BBQ - By Doug Linn

While flying around near Waterfall, AK on Google Earth, I found what looks to be a Brad's BBQ Barge tethered in Port Refugio Bay.  Since it doesn't show up in P3D or FSX, I decided I should make things more real by putting it in so others could see it.  What do fishermen eat every day while out on the boats fishing?  Fish, fish, and then more fish. So we decided to give them a good old Southern BBQ sandwich and cold beer and see what would happen. Now on their "fishing breaks" they drop by the barge for a few dozen BBQ sandwiches and a case or two of beer, then head back out to the fishing grounds.

This on is a Season Switcher, and in Winter, the barge is tucked away safely near the shore. In Spring and Fall, it is being hauled either out to the middle of the inlet or is being brought back to its winter anchorage. 

You'll find it under "P" on the Scenery Page.

Blue Cat Lake cabin - By Doug Linn

Just a tiny cabin on a high mountain lake. This is in the Tongass X area. You start at Waterfall (be sure to have it installed from RTMM) and after a scenic 25 mile trip, you arrive at the destination that is about 1100 feet in altitude. Come at it with a low speed and flaps, the lake is relatively short to land on.  The water on the lake freezes in winter.  This location has the RTMM Season Switcher technology.

Starting Position at Location: N55 16.9497...W133 38.4962 Hdg: 296
VFR Location: 25 Miles 301 True (Direct) from View Cove Dock

You've been searching for a remote cabin on a remote lake where nobody will bother you. You found one in the local paper. The cabin is a "fixer-upper" so it will take some work, but looks like perfect location for you. The real estate agent is also a pilot and has agreed to meet you at the location.

Night Navigation Lighting for Water Runway at Misty's Place

You can now RETURN to Misty Moorings at night and with difficult weather on the water runway. With poor visibility, judging the landing zone can be difficult, but not any more. I've used Steve's new approach lights to give you red and green touchdown and start markers.  After you land, watch out for "land" between you and the port entrance barriers (this is now marked with white warning lights).

Once you enter the canal going back to Misty's Place, keep the green flashers to your left and red to your right. As you approach the marker buoys, they change to a steady red or green just ahead of you. Go slow and trust them and they will take you to the Medical Dock or the amphibian pullout.

Download the new Misty's Place zip folder and install it ("M" on the Scenery Page) for this update.

Luelia Lake Cabin by Doug Linn

The cabin is just a short trip from Misty's Place (and Ketchikan). It is located on Luelia Lake near the Moria Sound on Prince of Wales Island. In a direct line, the location is about 19 miles on a heading of 213 magnetic from Misty's Place. You'll find a small cabin on a small island in a small lake (Luelia Lake). The landing surface altitude is at 970 feet. The best approach on final is from about 2300 feet on a heading of 343 magnetic. Be sure to land slowly as there is a ridge at the far end of the lake that can be difficult to clear if you miss the landing. (The surface of the lake does not freeze in winter). The flight plan starts you at Misty's Place by the fuel depot (on land) and ends at Luelia Lake (water) so you should use an amphibian. There is night lighting for the landing zone.

You'll find a dirt path for the ATV's all around the island. Across from the cabin is a stream leaving the lake. If you follow the stream, it cascades into two lakes as it makes its way down to Moria Sound.

Bob's Bay Cabin by Doug Linn
Starting Position at Location: N55 12.6226 ... W133° 9.7150 ... Head: 250
VFR Location: 6 nm Southeast of Waterfall KWF

This locations consists of a small "A" Frame cabin on an inlet of Bob's Bay. This is only about 6 nm southeast of Waterfall, but staying over water at low altitude, the distance is about 10 nm. Be LOW and SLOW on the final turn, the landing zone is narrow and short.

Hidden Inlet Retreat by Doug Linn
Starting Water Position at Location: N55 0.7167 ... W130 20.7562 Mag: 178
Starting Land Position at Location: N55 0.8095 ... W130 21.0230 Mag: 338
VFR Location: 37 NM North of Prince Rupert

Hidden Inlet Retreat is a fictitious retreat situated in the "Hidden Inlet" ... in the USA, but almost in Canada! This resort is accessible only by air or water, there is no road transportation to it. It consists of a rustic resort hotel with dockage and a small airstrip. The airstrip has night lighting so dusk and night flights are possible on this airstrip.

Water/Heli/Land/Boat - The scenery location can be accessed by float plane, having a dock on the water and also by wheeled aircraft by having a short airstrip behind the retreat complex. There is also a helipad. You can take off away from the retreat (toward the valley and mountains) as there is plenty of room for a "U" turn to head back out over the water. There are two flight plans, one coming out of Prince Rupert (for wheel aircraft) and a second coming out of Port Simpson SPB for floats/amphibs. Both are in the RTMM Flight Plans.zip and both are in the folder for this package. And if you are in the mood for a cruise, this resort is accessible by boat from any port in the world!

Hilton Head Island Water Flatten - Doug Linn

KHXD on Hilton Head Island is my "home" airport. In P3D there is a significant water anomaly off the north end of the island extending all the way across the bay to Phillips Island. Its about 4 miles long, and a trough about 40 feet deep and 1/2 mile wide. You'll never notice it coming in to Hilton Head, it blends into the water, but if you try a float plane in the area or a boat ... it is significant.  I finally got tired of it and fixed it. I also fixed up both shorelines affected where the water was "piling up" on the beach.  I put the fix up on the beta page (top table) if any is interested.  Go to Scenery/Beta Area/look for Hilton Head Island Water Flatten. I've got a PDF in the package that shows how to install it and pictures of the problem and a map of the affected area.  Most people won't need this, but if you do, there it is.

Three new locations uploaded - by Doug Linn

Very Inlet Cabin by Doug Linn (Added 06.04.2017)
Starting Position at Location: N54 57.0996 ... W130 53.2028 ... Mag: 257
VFR Location: 34 Miles Southwest of Ketchikan

A small year-round cabin located about 35 miles southwest of Ketchikan in the Very Inlet. You can fly low and slow to this one for a nice sight-seeing flight. The landing zone is water and is "very" tricky ... there are many small islands in the inlet and you will have to select your best approach based on wind and island hazards for a safe landing. A fly-over, the first time, is recommended.

Arrive at sunset and sit by the fire circle and watch the sun set and the dolphins swimming just off the shoreline. A relaxing way to end your day.

Badger Lake Cabins by Doug Linn (Added 06.04.2017)
Starting Position at Location: N55 12.8658 ... W130 48.1373 ... Mag: 049
VFR Location: 30 NM from Ketchikan, Mag 085. ESE

Two cabins tucked into the outflow section of Badger Lake. The flight plan starts you from Wilson River Lodge (land) and you will be landing on water that does not freeze in the winter. The outfall lake is very short, so as you approach the end of Badger Lake, be ready for a sharp turn to port and be just above the treetops with 1/2 flaps and slow speed.

The location area is richly landscaped. There is a higher level pond for fishing with a small ramp and dock. There is a stream coming from the higher pond to the lower lake. There is a path connecting the cabins and the upper pond. A walk up the path, beside the stream, and arriving at the lake is worth the effort. And a wildlife surprise awaits. A great place for two families to camp.

Hidden Inlet Cabin by Doug Linn (Added 06.04.2017)
Starting Position at Location: N55 0.0206 ... W130 25.1429 Mag: 026
VFR Location: 37 NM North of Prince Rupert

As an addition to Hidden Inlet Retreat, this is a cabin you can rent on the nearby Hidden Inlet Lake. Just a small cabin, with outhouse and well. Great fishing year around on a secluded end of the lake. Plenty of wildlife to see and a beautiful view of the lake.

You can arrive here from Prince Rupert or from Kincolith SPB. It is a water landing and the water does not freeze in winter.

Two New Locations (PNW)

Two new scenery locations are ready for download. As with all of our new locations, you can find both in the "start table" on the Here2There page and on the interactive GoTo table.  Flight Plans are available in the RTMM Flight Plans.zip (Here2There page). Just redownload the new one and REPLACE the old one (do not overwrite...replace).

Big Creek Lodge PF61 - By Doug Linn

Big Creek Lodge (fictitious) is a new RTMM Airport. It is just (3 miles) outside the ORBX PNW region, but close enough. You can get to it from Twin Lakes or even the Vancouver area (90 mile flight). This locations features 3 lodges, all connected with a road system to the airport parking area. There is an amphibian pull out and a float plane dock. The Amphib pullout has a connecting taxiway to the main airstrip complex. The airstrip has a 360 turn-around on each end of the runway. A helipad is available.

You can "Go to Airport" using PF61 Big Creek Lodge. The NDB frequency for the new airport is 261.The complex is equipped with night lighting allowing you to land there at night. The taxiways are "blue lit" and there are approach lights out in the water for marine operations.  For night navigation, all the marine (floats) navaids are "blinking". Keep the Red to your right as you taxi to the float plane dock (where there is fuel) and the amphib pullout.

This is a very interesting area to fly. It is at 4000 feet, with mountains around going up to 7000 feet. Beautiful river valleys and majestic snow-covered mountains.

We will be making some places to fly to from Big Creek Lodge so you can better see and appreciate this beautiful area ... all of those locations will be "inside" PNW.  The first of these is Silt Lake Cabin. (See Below). There are many beautiful "hidden" lakes that will be fun to fly to. As you look at this area, if you see a unique potential location, please let us know. You can find Big Creek Lodge PF61 under "B" on the RTMM Scenery Page.

Silt Lake Cabin - By Doug Linn

This is a small cabin on Silt Lake, a runoff from a nearby glacier.  At the outflow from the lake to the river, there is a "water anomaly" (water ridge). The lake is about 7 feet higher than the river, so there is a drop off. Usually, I use a "water flatten" to get rid of these, but this particular one is perfect for creating a waterfall beside the cabin. So this one has some special eye candy.

From Big Creek Lodge, at 4200 feet, you'll need an altitude of 6700 feet to cross over the mountain ridge, then you drop back down to about 3000 feet for the landing. The cabin is on the near shore, be low and slow coming at the lake.

The lake freezes in winter, so be ready to land with ski landing gear if you are flying in Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, Mar, April, and May. Find Silt Lake Cabin under "S" on the  RTMM scenery Page.

NOTAM: Spud's computer is causing problems, so he was not able to do the QC on these. Norm Richards helped me. But Norm and I both miss Spud's eye for detail. So there may be a little problem here or there that we will fix if you point them out to us.

Tsuniah Lake Lodge by Doug Linn

Tsuniah Lake Lodge CAF4

Starting Position water: N51 31.6858 ... W124 9.2302 ... Mag: 134
VFR Location: 26 NM at 217 Mag from Scum Lake CAW3.

For over 50 years we have been making peoples vacations a trip to remember.

The lodge offers a variety of activities, whether its a game of pool, shuffleboard or a quiet moment to read by a fire, it all awaits you. The meals are served family-style in the main lodge and you won’t go away hungry. There is plenty of home cooking, right down to the fresh bread, baked daily and homemade pies.

Because the lodge is located so deep in the Canadian wilderness, there aren’t any televisions or telephones, but there is electricity supplied by a water turbine. There are ten spacious cabins, each with 2 bedrooms, private baths, and a sitting room. You can cozy up by your wood stove and enjoy your view.

The lodge has its own airstrip, CAF4 at 4000 feet. This is a real lodge and you can find the information on it HERE. There is heli and water operations (floats) facilities.

The airstrip and a couple of buildings and docks are already in PNW. I added the lodge and the rest of the facilities.

There is an active fuel pump at the end of the float plane pier.
You navigate an amphibian down the little road from the lodge to an amphibian pullout. It is a little bumpy, and it takes a little 'power' to get up the hill, but easily done. Stay between the two white signs when navigating this maneuver.

PS You can fly to this one easily from the new Big Creek Lodge.

VFR Location: 33 NM Southwest of Tsuniah Lake Lodge


Wikipedia: Scar Creek Airport (TC LID: CBA7) was a small general aviation airport located near Scar Creek, British Columbia, Canada. The airport was listed as abandoned in the 15 March 2007 Canada Flight Supplement.

However, with RTMM magic, Scar Creek has been re-activated. We have re-opened the lodge and cabin areas. There is a new float plane dock (with fuel) and a 24/7 shuttle bus that can take you from the little terminal area to the lodge over the bridge. Night lighting allows you to land safely at the airport during low light/night hours.

This location is equipped with the RTMM Season Switcher so you have different things going on for each season. You can read about the Season Switcher on RTMM's FAQ page (under "S").

Flying to an from Scar Creek demonstrates one of the most beautiful areas in British Columbia. There are two flight plans for this one. The first is from Westwood Inn. This is a lengthy but BEAUTIFUL flight, staying low and slow over water, an easy flight. The second is from Tsuniah Lake Lodge is through high mountain narrow valleys. The second is a little shorter, beautiful scenery, more dangerous (see map #2). You should put in RTMM's Westwood Inn (for Route 1) and RTMM's Tsuniah Lake Lodge (Route 2) locations and activate them to make these flight plans work for you.

Misty's Place Update 10.08.2017

I've put in new NIGHT WATER approach lighting for night landings at Misty's Place. The attached screenshot shows you the configuration when you are "lined up." The runway is not parallel to Bostwick Inlet, it is canted to the left. This lighting helps you find the landing zone, and leads you toward the channel that goes to Misty's Place.

I also adjusted the smoke from Misty's Place Cabin and Bar buildings. The "log cabin" object we used for smoke, even at sea level, changes altitude when viewed in P3D V4. I used the "Snow Dogs" stove and this keeps the smoke near the roof of the building.

The new "Misty's Place" is uploaded on the Scenery Page.

IMPORTANT POST FOR Prepar3D V4+ Users

As Prepar3D moves from 32 to 64 bit platforms, some anomalies appear with RTMM scenery locations. This is a part of the change that we must face and embrace. For anyone using Prepar3d V4 or V4.1 (V4+)... you should read this thread carefully as these changes affect you. Those using FSX, P3D V2 or V3 are not affected.

New Win 10 Update released 1:26pm 11.14.2014
Update KB4048955


Good News:  This is the update we've been waiting for. Prepar3d V3.5 now starts up without a CTD, and is fly-able.

Bad News: There is a new error (Error creating Child Window ... attached).  Not sure what that error means yet. Another MAJOR problem is when you initiate IS3 (Instant Scenery 3), the whole thing crashes to desktop. I've got a trouble ticket in to Flight1 on this problem.

Bottom line ... we are not "back in business" yet with Scenery development and re-configuration for V4.1.  Sorry, we just have to wait until THEY get THEIR ducks in a row! I'll keep you posted.

Misty's Place Update 11.16.2017

Updated the lighting system for the water runway, now matches the runway. Got rid of the rocks at the north end of the runway, put a flatten there to eliminate the hill. Removed trees for the approach. Moved the beacon for better night navigation, landscaped around new beacon location, fixed detached smoke effects (only seen in P3D V4+), eliminated some flashing buoys. Added warning signs at lighthouse peninsula.  QC Checked for FSX, P3D 3 and P3D 4.

Misty Gustavus (Misty Air Taxi) by Doug Linn

Gustavus Airport is a perfect location for Misty Moorings Air Taxi Service that can handle
flights into Glacier Bay National Park. There is also a small Medical Center at this new
complex which can handle medical emergencies from the area.

We've added several small scenery locations to this package to give you places to visit in the Glacier Bay area. The Readme has all the details. There is also a TRIPs folder that gives you plans for these outlying locations:

• Adams Inlet Cabin
• Muir Inlet Campsite
• Carol Glacier Campsite
• Carol Glacier Cabin
• Margerie Glacier Cabin (ship viewing)
• John Hopkins Cabin
• The Sisters VOR Station

Special Downloads for Prepar3D V4+

We have discovered some objects and effect perform differently when used in P3D V4.0 and V4.1 (4+). The team has been making corrections for these and we are posting them on Step Table #9 on the re-designed "Getting Started/RTMM Installation (http://return.mistymoorings.com/getting_started/index.php)" page. The update to this page is not yet finished, but you can download the new files from Step Table #9 on the updated page.

AI Aircraft for Tongass X - This file is the one people must have if they are using P3D V3 or V4. This eliminates the Crash to Desktop from some of the older AI objects that were used in Tongass X. We have included the file in Step Table #9 and it will also be in Step Table #5 for Tongass X installation for P3D V3 when that table is completed.

veh_Mega_yacht_sm - This is a boat object that was updated so it can be used in P3D V4+. V3 and FSX are not affected by this object and no download or change is necessary.

veh_Garbage_Barge_sm - This also is a boat object that was updated so it can be used in P3D V4. V3 and FSX are not affected by this object and no download or change is necessary.

MF_cabin_chimney.fx - This is an updated cabin smoke effect. In P3D V4+, excessive cabin smoke happens with some of the Tongass X cabins. When this effect replaces the one in your Effects folder, that problem, for V4 goes away. This effect also turns the smoke on and off at 64*F / 18*C. So smoke will not be seen in warm weather. This temperature effect works for P3D 3.4 and FSX also.

Updated "Fixed Detached Smoke" folders for P3D V4 Users - Installation Page, Step Table #10

We have been spending a great deal of time changing out the objects that show "detached smoke" in P3D V4.   This project will continue for some time and we'll be handling the updated information by these new methods. There are two ways for you to get theses new scenery folders to keep your P3D V4 installation up to date.

1. One-At-A-Time from the Scenery Page: As these are changed, the new folder can be downloaded for these scenery locations on the scenery page. You will see the "update date" is recent, you will see an asterisk with it, and at the bottom of that box is the "reason" for the update. All of these will discuss the detached smoke update.  So you can download these one at a time and only put in the ones you want. This also updates the Scenery page for new people coming to the site, whatever they download from the Scenery Page will be the latest if it is so marked.

2. On the Installation/Getting Started Page, Step Table #10 (http://return.mistymoorings.com/getting_started/index.php#10). This is where we will be putting all new folders for P3D V4 update. This is also where all the "generic-site-wide" updated files will be kept. So you should check with this table often to look for new entries.  You will see a section there for "Updated Addon Scenery folders for P3D V4 (Smoke Problem Fixes)". As we do groups of folders, we will zip them and add them in this location. There is a "readme" in each that tells you what was changed. You download this zip, delete the folders you have now in your Scenery Library and add these new ones.

NOTAM: If you have FSX or P3D V3.4, you do not need to download these updated scenery folders. You will not see the "detached smoke problem" with those two platforms. But for those with P3D V4+ that want to keep up-to-date ... here are the two ways to accomplish that.

NOTAM2: On the Scenery Page, every scenery location that has been checked for this problem or has a new corrected file folder because of the problem, will have a P3D V4/Ready logo under the thumbnail. We are using these to keep track of the ones we have completed and which still need work. You will see us now coming down the page alphabetically.

PS Sorry about the inconvenience, but don't thank us for it, thank Microsoft.

Updated Waterfall (AI Boat/Wake problem)

There is a new download for Waterfall.  I didn't have the fishing boats configured correctly and I didn't have the wake effect needed for them. So I had boats, but no wakes. To make sure you have them and they are configured correctly, I put them into the download for Waterfall.  You will see an "update readme" that explains it. Basically you are overwriting a boat in the SimObjects/Boats folder and putting in the proper wake effect in your EFFECTs folder. The new folder is ready for download on the Scenery Page under W for Waterfall.

New BWEP (off pipeline) Additions

Spoiler's Lodge at RMP
Circle City Lodge at PACR
Wandering Lakes Lodge at 51Z


Although BWEP is not necessary for these, if you have BWEP, this gives you some locations to "fly to" that are "off the pipeline route." It will give you a feel for the country on both sides of the pipeline. All require ORBX Global Base/Vector.


On each of these I have "enhanced" the airport (mostly there were just a gravel strip with a couple buildings) and turned them into something that you would have fun seeing and exploring. These are NOT meant to be accurate as to what is really, there ... this is for our fun and pleasure. All are connected with roads to the nearby community. The lodges are NOT real, again we are guessing what something like this would look like in that area.

As the pipeline moves north, the lights (in winter particularly) grow dimmer. So a lot of attention has been paid to lighting, runways, roads, lodge paths, etc. To get the full effect fly at dusk or dawn. The nearby communities are lit up too. You can use the "road system" to drive to the lodge from the airport area.

Let us know if you see any problems with these. They are complex and we could have a glitch here and there. Hope you enjoy these new locations.  Startup documentation on them is on the Here2There page, on the GoTo table and on the Scenery page.

Updated Klutina Outfitters and Landmark Gap Lodge

I am removing objects out on the ice from some of the season switcher sceneries. Many people have "water freezes in winter" in Vector UNCHECKED, so they are showing water year around. Objects "on ice" appear to be floating in the water. Taking these objects out makes the sceneries more universal.

Also, a grass strip was put in to Landmark Gap Lodge, this is now RTMM's PF65. So as you update you may want to update your PlanG or VFRFlight to see the new airport.

So Klutina Outfitters and Landmark Gap Resort are now "updated" on the Scenery Page.

This was done in anticipation of the CIRP Tours coming from the Misty Flying Club.  Also,  all of the smoke objects were replaced (they were demonstrating the "offset-smoke" problem. All are fixed.

FRANCES LAKE LODGE - New Scenery Addition - by Brad Allen

Here is a beautiful lodge placed on the lower end of Frances Lake. You fly to it from Watson Lake. Here is the description:
 
Shaped by moving ice during the last glacial period, Frances Lake is the largest lake in the southeast Yukon. Its twin arms are joined in a V-shape by a labyrinthine stretch of islets and inlets known as the Narrows; and its shores are fringed by creeks, rivers and glassy bays. Beyond the water’s edge, dense boreal forest separates the lake from the distant mountains. The lake’s fascinating topography makes it a haven for wildlife; and for adventurous souls wishing to immerse themselves in the region’s remote beauty. This scenery depicts a lodge along the Frances Lake Shoreline. It is inspired by a real world location but is not in any way a representation of that location.

Thank you Brad for another great addition. You will find it on the Scenery Page under "F".

PUNCHBOWL LAKE RETREAT - By Brad Allen

Another beautiful location on one of the most scenic lakes in RTMM, Punchbowl Lake. The approach is tricky, but easy if you pay attention ... notice the warning in the readme. This is a great addition, thank you Brad.

"Natural Features: Punchbowl Lake Retreat is surrounded by mountains on all sides and the facility offers a great location to see the wild Misty Fjords from a unique and memorable vantage point. A large variety of wildlife lives in the area including Sitka black-tailed deer, bald eagles, waterfowl and river otter. The area is particularly known for its black bear population, so visitors are urged to practice bear safety. In addition to the main retreat area, there is a small private cabin on the northeast tip of the lake's island and a Forestry Service Shelter nestled against the NW cove of the lake."

You will find it under "P" on the Scenery Page.

Cabins by the Lakes II by Brad Allen

This second edition of the Cabins By the Lakes scenery for Return to Misty Moorings centers around the Southern Lakes region of the Yukon Territory and this area is considered the gem of the Yukon. Mountains crested with glaciers meet clear blue lakes, and endless boreal forests sit in between. The network of lakes, rivers, and glacial streams form the headwaters of the mighty Yukon River, and the area’s network of waterways and trails form a backcountry playground for adventurers. Several small communities, rich with history, make this scenic area home.

All locations have flight plans and maps. All 30 locations are on the GoTo Table and in the Start Locations table on Here2There. Each cabins starting position is listed on the scenery page location. Look for it under "C" on the Scenery page.

Here is a beautiful repaint for you, the classic Douglas C-47, now repainted in Misty Colors for the Misty Flying Club. Klaus "outdid" himself on this one. Beautiful as usual, but his "eye" kept the style of the aircraft intact.  RTMM is proud to put this beautiful repaint into our Hangar. You can find it in "Enhancements/Repaints/Fix Wing".

A very special hat tip to Klaus for an absolutely beautiful piece of work.  Thank you!

PS: If you haven't tried this aircraft, you should. There are (as of now) 2 tours on MFC using it. I was a bit hesitant myself (being a Beaver pilot), but I quickly fell in love with this beautiful airplane.  Spend some hours in this cockpit and you'll fee the history around you.

Skagway for RTMM and SAK (Please Read NOTAM* Below) - by Brad Allen

This scenery attempts to give the city a more turn of the century look and also helps remove any Autogen buildings that sometimes float above the surrounding terrain. Look for more scenery details around the city area and we were careful to make sure that our additions do not infringe on what’s been placed already by the ORBX team.

We added train objects from our libraries to help enhance the railroad areas around the city. Especially where the narrow gauge White Pass train currently picks up passengers at the Cruise Ship dock area. The nighttime lighting around the city is also enhanced and gives the area a new look and feel so be sure to see this area when it’s dark.


*NOTAM: This is an UPDATED scenery location. If you previously had the fix for Skagway Floating
Houses, you must:
1. Delete the original “SAK Skagway for RTMM” (Floating Houses Fix) from your sim's
Scenery Library
2. Delete the folder from your computer
Next, add “Skagway for RTMM and SAK” the same way you add all RTMM locations. Then
Activate it in your scenery library.

Lake Hood AI Float Planes by Dex Thomas Added 05.17.2018

NOTAM: This only works for the Aerosoft Anchorage Payware

Lake Hood Seaplane Base (PALH) started out as two smaller lakes: Lake Hood to the west and Lake Spenard to the east. Back in the 1970s, the state began dredging out a canal in between the two to create seaplane takeoff and taxi lanes. Operating continuously and open to the public, Lake Hood is the world's busiest seaplane base, handling an average of 190 flights per day. Located next to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport and three miles from downtown Anchorage, the base has an operating control tower and during the winter months the frozen lake surface is maintained for ski-equipped airplanes.

SIRP by Mike Broemme updated...now Version 2.1

If you haven't flown the glacier ice stations above Petersburg, it is something you have to put on your RTMM bucket list!  Mike Broemme has re-created the SIRP stations that we had years ago with the old Misty Moorings site.  The update fixes the offset smoke problems with the burning barrels, adds smoke to some building chimneys, adds approach lighting so you can line up better on the snow runways and adds a little lighting for dusk/dawn operations around the buildings.

At the MFC site, Norm has created MFC0015 SIRP Petersburg Exploration ... a tour that takes you to the ice stations. If you haven't tried our "VA" here is a great chance to now only join the fun, but also see the beautiful ice stations.

The new version 2.1 is on the Scenery Page under "S" (SIRP).

BWEP Dalton Highway RELEASED!  By Brad Allen and Friends

Along its length, the Dalton Highway is a spine-snapping roadbed of dirt, loose gravel and rocks. It cuts through boreal forests, along endless stretches of wilderness prarie and permafrost, across the Arctic Circle, up and down the unforgiving passes of the Brooks Range and deep into the reaches of an arctic coastal plain. The highway boasts, if that is actually the word, the longest stretch of unserviced road on the North American continent. For 240 miles, from Coldfoot to Deadhorse, there is nothing. There are no gas stations, no flush toilets, no auto body shops, no restaurants, no medical facilities, no hotels, no motels, no state police posts, no cellphone service, no Internet connections, no radio reception — nothing at all, for a seven-hour span, if you are lucky. Nothing but the thoroughfare itself.

In addition to these numerous signs of absolute desolance, there is also no good reason for a nonprofessional driver to drive the Dalton Highway. Hewed from the permafrost over five brief months in 1974, it originally served as an access road for construction of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, which itself was built from 1975 to 1977, after oil was discovered on Alaska’s North Slope. Now it is primarily used by large trucks hauling equipment to the oil fields along the Arctic Ocean shoreline.

This segment of the BWEP Project starts out at the Yukon River and ends at Prospect Creek. There are several additional stopping points along the route that pilots can visit. Look on the BWEP Web Page (http://return.mistymoorings.com/bwep/#install). You can download from there and see all of the locations available for this new segment.

SIRP Version 2.3 by Mike Broemme

This is an updated version of SIRP from Mike that fixes a small error in the original version below.

NOTAM: This package is unique in that there is a version incorporated that allows some of the new features of P3D V4.2 to be utilized. (In this case, icy runways). This package is, by default, compatible with FSX and P3D V3. But there is a "configurator" that allows the scenery to be quickly converted to 4.2 format for the new features.  This is still in testing phases, it would be interesting to see what people think of this.

Goose Bay Cabin .... you won't see anything different, but there were 3 objects in this file that were showing up 200 miles away. That has been fixed.

Big Fall Hydro ... the falls looked fine in P3D V3 and FSX, but in 4.2 the fog/waves were not correct. Those have now been fixed and it works in all of them.

Owikeeno Lake Area ... Added a fuel trigger to Ashlum Creek, Brad's BBQ. The pump was there but it wasn't active ... it is now.

None of these are MAJOR, but some people use the NOTAMS to keep up with all changes, so this is for them.

Flight Planning Bug in P3D V4.3

UPDATE!  The latest version of P3D, V4 fixes this problem.

Just a heads up to people running P3D V4.3. There is a bug with the present version when it comes to loading a flight plan.  If you load an RTMM Flight Plan (From RTMM_Flight_Plans.zip), VERY RARELY will it be a direct flight, there almost always are way points along the way. So if you load a flight plan and see it is "GPS Direct" from the starting point to the ending point, DO NOT "SAVE" Flight information and go directly to LOAD and load it again and it will probably come up with all the waypoints. If you "save", you will save the error and overwrite your .pln file to a new direct GPS route.  So, IGNORE, and immediately LOAD (without saving first) and it should be ok.

This USUALLY happens when you start the sim and first load a flight plan, later when you load a second flight plan you probably won't see the problem.

We are told Lockheed Martin is aware of this bug and it will be fixed with the next version of P3D.

RSA  (Route Safe Altitude)

In conjunction with MFC, we are introducing a new term, RSA or Route Safe Altitude. If you want to fly LOW and SLOW and either use gps for navigation or carefully follow the gps route, you can use the lowest possible altitude for the route and be safe. (Be sure to have your barometer set correctly). This brings you "down into" the scenery, barnstorming and bushing flying. When you see "RSA" in the name of the flight plan from RTMM_Flight_Plans.zip, you will know that that particular route has been "safety checked" to fly at the RSA.  Read more about it HERE (http://forum.mistymoorings.com/index.php?topic=4207.0).

Nekite Lake Cabin - Added to Owikeno Lake Area

While working on the MFC routes, I discovered the landing zone at Dallory's End Cabin is literally impossible for a fixed wing aircraft ... so we made it "HELO".  The "new" scenery location to represent that area is Nekite Lake Cabin, just beyond Dallory's End Cabin with a turn to starboard. However we've made a whole new "route" to get to it.  If you already have Owikeno Lake Area, you need to DELETE the scenery folder, and add the "Owikeno Lake Area" scenery folder located in the "Owikeno Lake Area 12.13.2018.zip" file.  The MFC flight number for Nekite is MFC0425B.  You can find the new location on the GoTo table with map/distance, etc. Remember, when you download Owikeno Lake Area, you are getting 34 locations!

Icon A5 Light Amphibian ... A Misty Repaint by Klaus Tröppner

Not your typical "bush" aircraft ... but PERFECT for the short hops land & water at Return to Misty Moorings. Klaus has repainted the Icon A5 in Misty Colors with a "modern" touch. It has plenty of "windshield" so you can view the beautiful scenery easily. You can get the aircraft from this link at Rikoooo:

https://www.rikoooo.com/downloads/viewdownload/17/464 (https://www.rikoooo.com/downloads/viewdownload/17/464)

This is a freeware aircraft (while you're at it browse Rikoooo, there are some interesting things to see).  Our thanks to Andreas Koerner for the beautiful aircraft and always our thanks to Klaus for the stunning Misty Repaint.

Refresh 2019

We have formally started our "Refresh 2019" campaign. We are going back to many of the older scenery locations and are updating them technically. Often the Season Switcher is being added, new library objects, etc. But we are also paying a great deal of attention to the "readme" instructions for each location making sure they are clear and not out of date. To learn more about the process go to the forum HERE (http://forum.mistymoorings.com/index.php?topic=4250.msg36674#msg36674) and join the discussion.

Misty's Place 2019 ... Refreshed and with Season Switcher

Misty's Place has been totally refreshed. A better airstrip, many options for night lighting, Season Switcher capable, highway connection to PAKT (Payware and Standard options).  This was one of Brad's first scenery locations for RTMM.  Many years later, he has made it even better. All the information you need is in the PDF readme and in the installation instructions that you can view by clicking the buttons at the bottom of the location segment on the Scenery Page.

This is out "home away from home" and it has never looked better! Look under "M" on the Scenery Page for the download.

C.I.R.P. (GLACIERS!) ... has been TOTALLY Refreshed!

The entire CIRP program has been revamped, new downloads and a new dedicated CIRP page. All of the ice stations (10) are now in the SAME download zip file ... one download, all 10 stations and the ndb's too.  If you look on the Scenery Page under "C" (http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/#c) you will see all the CIRP entries, the ice stations zip, plus all of the other CIRP addons associated with the program. Everything can be downloaded in about 3 minutes now. 

NOTAM: You should DELETE all of your CIRP sceneries from your Sim's Scenery Library, then add these refreshed files.  DO NOT overwrite!

The CIRP Scenery Page (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/cirp/) has been totally revamped.  The only thing we are really missing is the hovercraft (we are looking for a replacement). But in the meantime, the CIRP Stalwart is one heck of a land vehicle.  You can download a "tricked out" Stalwart from the Land Operations table.  Following the glacier dispatches, you can drive the vehicle safely out on the ice and literally cover MILES and MILES of terrain. The "Tricked out" version is set up with 3D REDUX lights if you have the program and a special modified "Ground Handling" system that give you speed control for the vehicle.  The engine is souped and can send the Stalwart up very steep inclines.

For the air operations there are dispatches that will take you on various supply runs out to the 10 ice stations. All of them are equipped with an NDB so you can tune in your target station on the vehicle's ADF and find the location. This can give you some spectacular flying ... 6000 feet and higher. Weather is always a factor .. and when it is "clear" ... the view is spectacular showing you the fastness of the glacier system above the beautiful Misty Fjords.

There is an "introductory" tour on the CIRP page so you can take a tour (once you've loaded up CIRP) that will take you from PAKT to Summit Ice Station. A great way to see the transition from Fjords to Glaciers, all autopilot guided (except for altitude) so you can enjoy the tour. 

All of the location downloads are done from the Scenery Page under "C" (http://return.mistymoorings.com/scenery/#c). And all the information and dispatches are on the dedicated CIRP page (http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/cirp/).

These two are worth a visit, go for the cabin first (it is "on the way") then head for the retreat. You should use an amphibian, landing on water at the cabin, then on the landing strip at the retreat. All lit up for dusk operations too.

REFRESH 2019 ....

Don't forget to check on the Scenery Page, top table, to get the the latest pdf of the locations that have been refreshed. We are putting up a couple or more a day ... busy busy.

One heads up ... on Hang 'em High ... I did a RE-refresh on that one. There was a problem with the ramp structure (Version is now 2.1 and date is 02.08.2019).  The launch ramp was completely rebuilt. Then a season switcher was put in. Thanks to a lot of support from various members of the team, we cobbled together a great paraglider by altering some of the graphics so it would work with P3D V4.  If you want an interesting experience, download Hang em High and download the powered paraglider from there too.

Today alone we put up Hang 'em High, Lucky Lindy's, Nisga's Glacial Lake and Prayer Lake Cabin.  All of these are now done with Rod's Season Switcher and make for some great locations to visit.

Be sure to watch for the Refresh 2019 logo on the scenery page to update your favorite location.

New RTMM Library Part IV ready for Download

NEW !! RTMM Library Part IV (02.11.2019) is ready for download. This package contains various fixes and improvements to a number of RTMM object libraries and RTMM scenery files. It is EXTREMELY important to carefully read the documentation in each folder in order to make the changes and additions to your RTMM installation as easy and efficient as possible. It is imperative that ALL of the files in this package are installed, without skipping or ignoring any of them. Failure to do so can, and will, make it difficult to RTMM staff to debug future issues users may have with their scenery.

Few can imagine the hours that goes into a project like this, but please, take a moment and give Steve a thank you for a tremendous job.  Watch for his posting explaining all of this in detail on the forum.

You will find the download on the Object Library Page.

Alaska Power Project - 2019 Refreshed

The Alaska Power Project (APP) has been refreshed. It is now a "Season Switcher" and the files have been cleaned up and the readme refreshed. If you are a present owner of APP, you should delete it completely and reinstall this new V2.0 version. You will not have to reinstall the special "Medical and APP Library" for it. The library remains unchanged.

There are 16 locations. But in actuality, there are 32 ... each power plant has an "upper reservoir area" and a "lower plant area". So there is a great deal to see.  All of these are "real or proposed".  For the real ones, they are exactly where they should be located. For the proposed ones, you will find them "under construction" with work crews building the new facilities.

The new Season Switcher Tables

You have probably noticed the new Season Switcher Tables that are replacing the Leaf Logo for the Season Switcher.  Norm,  Rod and I spent a great deal of time discussing how best this could be done. Each scenery location will have its own little Season Switcher table (if it uses Season Switcher). The "seasons" can change based on latitude, altitude and date ... so there are three key variables driving what you see in the "surrounding" scenery to a location. We are making sure that the location's scenery will be matching the seasonal surrounding scenery.

The key to this is using the Sim's CALENDAR to select your date. If you just change the seasons, it DOES NOT WORK! So if you are using the Season Switcher, get used to using the Calendar feature to select your month AND DATE. That determines what shows in the simulator.

You the date you want to fly, then look at the little table. Depending on the color of the table square for the month you are flying, you go to the Season Switcher and choose that Season. Then when you start your simulator, you use the Calendar to MAKE SURE you are on the correct date. 

If you look at the bottom of the little table, you'll see "Legend" ... this is a link to the instructions for the Season Switcher table. Click on it and read the instructions.  I am currently at the beginnings of the "C's" on the Scenery Page. It will take some time to get all of these done, so please be patient with us. I have to basically do this by myself since the colors are changing in the little table and I'm the only one who can make those changes.

Attached is a copy of an EXAMPLE of the new Season Switcher Table.

"Version.txt" and "Maintenance Logs" ....

As a part of REFRESH 2019, we are adding a couple of things you might not notice. When you download a scenery folder from RTMM now, inside the /scenery folder of the folder you put into your addon area is a tiny "version.txt" file. You will find it in with the bgl files.  As we standardize on location NAMES ... we are getting rid of the "version number" and other misc entries that have been a part of the name. We do this so when you download an update, the folder will be titled something like (example) Misty's Place ... (Not Misty's Place PF20 or Misty's Place Version 4.0 ... just Misty's Place). All you then have to do is delete the old Misty's Place folder and replace it with the new and not have to redirect your Scenery Library to find a new name. But it doing this, you lose the ability to know which version you have. Now you will know. If you go to the /scenery file (where the bgl files reside) you'll find the version.txt. Click on it and the date of the location update and version are always there for you.  This is now in every RTMM scenery download.

Also, all of the maintenance logs are now installed on ALL scenery locations. If you click on the REFRESHED DATE link at the top of each locations entry box, that link opens the maintenance log for that scenery location. So if you see there's an update, if you click on the link, you will see what we updated, when it was updated, and who did the update.

Both of these new features are installed and "up" on the server.

RTMM Automated Dispatches ... (Medical Dispatches Updated)

We have done a great deal of work refreshing and updating the Medical Dispatches in the RTMM Automated Dispatches.zip.  There are a couple of parts to this. From the Medical Facilities Page, you should download and install the RTMM Medical Facilities.zip ... it can be found HERE (http://return.mistymoorings.com/medical_facilities/#installation). That puts all of the medical clinics/hospitals and docks into your scenery. You add it like any other scenery program ... it adds 35 locations.

Next, redownload the latest RTMM Automated Dispatches.zip 06.13.2019 ... this has all the changes we have made in the dispatches for the Medical Facilities. (Don't forget, this also holds dispatches for BWEP ... but we have not altered anything in BWEP at this time).

Changes: We've taken OUT the red flashing buoys that helped you find the medical reception areas. These have been replaced with a man in an orange suit holding the orange smoke flare. This is only used at the medical docks (not hospitals or airports). At the airports, we have placed 3 red flashing lights on the roof of the building where the medical people are waiting for you ... this will help you find the location at a busy airport. 

We had added a new Dispatch (Stikine #3) and will continue to add them. When we add them, you will see a NOTAM and the date on the RTMM Automated Dispatches.zip will change. We have several facilities that do not have dispatches to them, we are working on those.

If you have a hidden talent of playing with scenery, the Medical Facilities page, at the bottom, has a "how to make a dispatch" area. It is not for the novices, but if you have some experience in this area and want to try one of these, let me know and I'll help you through the process the first time.

The Medical dispatches are unique in that they only give a way point for the emergency (which can be ANYWHERE). You have to figure out how to get to the way point. In our flying area, the weather may limit your altitude (you may want to stay below the clouds), which means a direct flight to the way point will put you into the first mountain you encounter. So you have to dodge around the mountains using the terrain feature on your gps. It is a different kind of flying, and can be a real challenge.

Kodiak Island Airfields by Thomas Menzel  -  NEW SCENERY LOCATION(s)
Added 06.19.2019

This package presents an additional scenery set to the MFC0023 Flight in Misty Flying Club where the default sceneries are very rare. The scenarios are outside of ORBX SAK region and only ORBX landclass, Global,and Vector are present. These sceneries makes the trip maybe more enjoyable, "From Here to There" ... flying from location to location..." These are partly "simple", partly more complex sceneries, this will make take offs and landings more interesting for the MFC tours.

Note from Doug: This is a beautiful area to fly and the locations Tomse has put in are very well-done. He has added scenery for 16 separate locations all around the coast of the island.

BWEP - New and Improved Web Page - by Doug and Garry

The BWEP page has been almost completely redesigned and edited. The new "format" will help you find things more easily and it gives us the ability to maintain the folders and files better.

THERE IS A MAJOR CHANGE ... the BWEP airports (per request of some) has been split out from the pipeline segments.  You will have to change your sim's scenery library and addon scenery folders to compensate for this new arrangement. There is a README at the top of the page that tells you what you must do.  Basically, it is taking out the pipeline segments and replacing them with new segments and the new BWEP airport folder.  Be sure your DELETE, do not overwrite, as some names are the same and you will get double objects).

We have made several updates along the way. The BWEP airport package has new airports that have been included in it now for the northern unfinished two pipeline segments. BWEP objects have been placed at all of them.  Notice there are two BWEP airport packages, one for "default" and one for "PAYware PAVD".  Again follow the instructions on the page to choose which one to download.

Garry has re-edited the web page so it reads more smoothly and makes instructions more clear. (It also makes some of them even more interesting).
