Addon Scenery and Enhancements / Re: RTMM OBjects Library Topic
« on: January 21, 2015, 01:08:50 PM »
Doug,

I have added that KMZ to Google Earth. Still doesn't seem to show many SBP's at
Tongass area. If I download the RTMM docks, are some of these docks SPB's ?

I downloaded the missing cabins zip.  Inside it are 18.BGL files.
Does that seem about right ? Just one directory and no instructions inside the zip file.

Just wondering if I had got the right file. I was thinking of the lighthouses and Oil rigs
but am still getting my head around how to get them lol
Cheers
Terry

Thanks

Hi gang,

Well, it all got too much for me   :o

So I bought Tongass Fjords this morning. Yes, it seems very good :)
Does anyone know how to see the list of SPB's there ?
I have one of those KMZ files for Google Earth, but it doesn't show many SPB's on that outline
area for Tongass. Or maybe am using Google Earth wrong lol.

I have all the boxes ticked on the left pane.

Terry.

Hi Brad and Spud,

Yes I am going to get both of those scenery areas. They are just my cup of tea :)

I think the AI traffic really makes this sim scream out at you.
I use GSX and I know it is only 'eye candy' that is what I like in FSX, as much eye candy as I can have :)
Your scenery so far just brings to life the smaller places. The SPB's are no longer boring and empty :)

I used to watch that Alaska Airline program.
(The family business one. The scary daughter learning to fly one lol)

I realise Alaska is massive so it will be interesting to see what ORBX Sak brings in the way of airport
and SeaPlaneBases.
Cheers

Terry

Hi Rod,

I am Rod but may be a few weeks. Only just bought ORBX's brilliant NWP, and Pacific Fjords.
So I have a good bit of looking around those before I purchase Tongass Fjords X.

Hi again,

There was weird things afoot with this.  The tester wasn't showing in my list in FSX scenery library.
But when I tried to add it to test again, it said it was already there !!

Similarly, I had issues removing the RWY12 LibraryFSXP3D in the respect that when I deleted it,
and removed it from the FSX list, the scenery tester didn't work at all - No tester buildings at all.

Rebooted FSX after removing deleting etc, to ensure it was looking ok.
Then I re-added RWY12 LibraryFSXP3D to FSX\Addon Scenery, and added to the list in FSX.
All looking good.
Re-added the Scenery Tester into FSX\Addon Scenery, and added to the list in FSX.

Rebooted FSX and BINGO - they are all there (Apart from No3 obviously)
Only thing is the green hanger has a wire frame roof.
I know I have read that in here, so am going to find out more and do whatever is needed.
Thanks again.
Terry

Amended to say I looked again at the tester pic and the roof on the green hanger looks wire framed.
Do I need to do anything else or are my eyes going funny on me ?

Howdy Rod,

Yes it is number 5 position which is missing. (See screen shot)
Oh well, the screenie (Jpeg) isn't very clever but yes, that Green Hanger at no 5 is totally missing.

I will do what you suggest and double check the RWY12 LibraryFSXP3D.
If it is as it should be I will check inside the scenery folder for file FSXP3D GA-Hangers_lib.bgl.

I will report back :)
Thank you.
Terry

I will Google it.

Hi guys,

The title says it all I guess.
Just wondering are there more collections of scenery or just Legacy collection ?

Do you have to download each other as an individual ?
Aiken Creek Camp for example. Is it in a collective zip somewhere on the site, packaged
with Border Lake Provincial Park and say Brad's Bait & BBQ Skeena River  <-- Examples.

Thanks
Terry

Hot damn Jeff and there I was with a full wallet ready to buy the beers :)

That reminds me. On the photo of the seaplane (Beaver I think it was)on short final to Misty's Place,
where can I get a Beaver with the retracks ? So I can take off on land or water.

Is there a freeware version or is it going to be payware ?
Thanks
Terry  :)

Hi :)

Everything is working at 99%.  I am missing the green small hanger that is all.

Please don't think I am being critical. Am sorry if I came over that way.
You guys do a brilliant job here. Supplying all this software for nothing.

The site is very large and daunting for a newbie to it. I was trying to explain without pointing
fingers or being ungrateful, as to why I initially placed that folder in my FSX\Objects folder.
It is the same with the scenery tester. The first one I downloaded from here was giving me
some of the buildings in a different order and some were missing.
Only when Doug asked me if I had the latest scenery tester and provided a link that I followed,
did everything look as it should. (Missing the small green hanger tho)

Now I downloaded the first scenery tester from this site by following links as I posted earlier.
Obviously it is the wrong version.  How am I to know ? lol

I am not saying this to be pointing fingers or poo poo'ing the site, or any of you guys.
Am only stating what happened is all. And I am very grateful for the help and advice I
was given. I was just a bit put out by 'Spud' implying I didn't read  / follow the installation procedure.

Do this really have to turn into war and peace ? Is it always this way here ?

I hate drama. I just came to fly in your brilliant scenery.

Cheers
Terry

Well I just flew into Misty's place and it was almost empty :)

Although it was around 6:30am local time. Guess you guys had just gone home  ;)

Tell you what - the Newbie pack and now Misty's place really make the low slow bush flying
pretty damn perfect.

Cheers  ;D

Ok here is what I read :-

I started at the RTMM Home page and started reading.
Further down the page it tells me requirements :-
REQUIREMENTS:
You Must Have These...
Microsoft FSX and Acceleration Pack (Amazon Link)
        or Prepar3D (Prepar3D Link)
"Tongass Fjords" by FSAddon (FSAddon Link)
"Pacific Fjords" (PFJ) (ORBX Link)
"Pacific Northwest (Pacific Blue) " (ORBX Link)
"Southern Alaska" (ORBX Link)
See Objects Library Table for Required Objects

So click on the link - now I am here 'The FSXP3D Object Libraries' page.
The Object Libraries Needed for RTMM
Getting the Object Libraries
Links to the Object Libraries you will Need
The Scenery Object Tester
Scenery Folders Placement and Object Libraries Priorities
Frequently Asked Questions

Clicked getting the libraries - and read that section.
Whether you are a new RTMM user or a RTMM veteran user, the first step to using the new, required "FSXP3D" capable RTMM libraries is to download Part I and Part II of the RTMM Required Object LibrariesFSXP3D. You can find links to these downloads in the section further below titled "Link to the Object Libraries" the libraries you need are downloadable there. Please follow the installation instructions that are contained in the downloads very carefully to make sure you disable the specific libraries that you may already have installed.

Links to the Object Libraries you will Need - and there they are all listed.
Note from the above paragraph Please follow the installation instructions that are contained in the downloads very carefully.

So Spud, how much reading of instructions should I do ? Should a newbie like me 'rummage through the whole massive site to check for other installation instructions ?
I read everything listed above. Then I read each of the instruction docs contained within each zip file.
Now, I obviously am not clairvoyant, so I didn't know that I should be reading instructions somewhere else. Plus, non of this tells me where to put objects. (As a newb to this site and installing the files)

I didn't want to put anything contained in these zip files in MY chosen location.
I wanted to put them where they should go. Where the RTMM wants me to put them.
So they work properly. I have been around computer systems since 1990. Indeed I graduated from Sheffield University with Computer Sciences in 1994 - so I do know the importance of places files where they should be exactly.

Hope that explains things a bit more.  :-\
