If you were using only the cfg files to define, may look something like this:

Title=Default Effects
Title=Tongass Effects

Simobjects.cfg Add lines:
Title=Tongass Airplanes
Title=Tongass Boats
Title=Tongass Rotorcraft

Title=Default Sounds
Title=Tongass Sounds

scenery.cfg - (or use sim scenery library screen to establish path):

Title=Tongass World Scenery
Local=G:\Addons\Alaska\FSADDON\Tongass\World Scenery 

Local=G:\Addons\Alaska\FSADDON\Tongass\Addon Scenery\Tongass_Fjords_Lower_Priority

Local=G:\Addons\Alaska\FSADDON\Tongass\Addon Scenery\Tongass_Fjords_Higher_Priority

In this case the Area 003 files (world scenery) are placed near the bottom of the SIM Scenery libs. The higher and lower senery pieces must be set in FTX Central -settings as follows:
>> openLC entries must be placed below Tongass_Fjords_Lower_Priority.
This creates the "Tongass block" which stays between the openLC blocks and the FTX block.

Lots of ways to play with this stuff.

For Effects, Simobjects and sound might want to simply create mirror but generic folders and set them up i your effects, simobjects and sound. cfg files  which is easier (less entries) but is still separate from your sim root- and still very easy to turn off and on simply by a folder rename .OFF which breaks the defined path and those addons won't load when the sim is started.

All sounds confusing? Well not really.. it's just a matter of linking folders and turning them off and on as you wish.

Hope this helps.. a bit?

I am away mick so not near my home pc.. but here is a quickie on addon xml and cfg files for tongass..

Rod has you started up Mick:  Yep can be done - just have to get all the pieces and of course you have to get the paths exactly correct in the addon.xml and must be in correct format and paths but not too hard to figure out and with FSX or P3D you can put stuff just about anywhere and as long as linked via cfg files, (or xml option) in P3d will work just fine.

1. First Read this on :

After install (to temp Location) the folders created are:

A: Effects
B: FSAddon
       Cache >> containing BGL files a sub folder with  some flight files
       Tongass_Fjords_Higher_Priority(This is the addon scenery Top level)
       Tongass_Fjords_Lower_Priority (This is the addon scenery Base level)
C: Scenery  (>> This is world scenery: equivalent to sim Layer 3 (Elevation files and AI trafic Files).
D: SimObjects >> Airplanes, Boats, Rotorcraft.
E: Sound

2). Now is a good time to do the Tongass fixes for use in P3Dv4x:

    a) Add Rod Jackson AI Model fixes to Simobjects. (A requirement for P3Dv4x)

    b) Add Mike Broemme new cabin smoke effects into effects folder. (Tongass cabins) (Optional)

    c) Add 40 Terrain entries for Tongass into  Terrain.cfg* (* C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4)

3). Ok Once fixes are done, determine where you want the tongass folders placed and move them over then start defining the xml and/or :
if any will be directed by use of config files.

Without seeing your sim setup and associated folders, figure out placement of these folders: Ie: Designated drive/addon folder locationss - then move the folders to where you want them.

Define the paths and start setting it all up in xml or a combination an addon.xml and a the rest using cfg files: IE: effects path to effects.cfg, new simobjects and new sounds to simobjects.cfg and sound.cfg, scenery to scenery.cfg or all to addon.xml...  Xml are a bit tricky but once you figure it out it works ok.. actually not as perfect as I want as the moving of scenery is not manipulable on defined where as moving scenery within the scenery.cfg and within the "scenery Blocks" is very manipulable.

Here is the link to P3D xml use:definition:

Now if you are going the cfg route you can still keep all the Tongass pieces totally separate from the sim root or drive and as long as you correctly define locations all the pieces/paths in the cfg files- and that will work just fine.

I am drafting offline as I am on limited data but will continue....

So if you put Tongass on another drive, (In my set up, all add-ons are on a totally separate drive and all sorted by either location and/or product), folder moved to the locations then

G:\Addons\Alaska\FSADDON\Tongass\Addon Scenery\Tongass_Fjords_Higher_Priority
G:\Addons\Alaska\FSADDON\Tongass\Addon Scenery\Tongass_Fjords_Lower_Priority
G:\Addons\Alaska\FSADDON\Tongass\World Scenery 

And addon xml:

XML example

<SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on">
    <AddOn.Name>FSADDON Tongass Fjords X</AddOn.Name>
    <AddOn.Description>Tongass Fjords X</AddOn.Description>

         <Path>G:\Addons\Alaska\FSADDON\Tongass\Addon Scenery\Tongass_Fjords_Lower_Priority</Path>
         <Name>Tongass Lower Priority</Name>

         <Path>G:\Addons\Alaska\FSADDON\Tongass\Addon Scenery\Tongass_Fjords_Lower_Priority</Path>
         <Name>Tongass Higher Priority</Name>

        <Category>SimObjects Airplanes</Category>

        <Category>SimObjects Boats</Category>

        <Category>SimObjects Rotorcraft</Category>



        <Name>Tongass World Scenery</Name>



Then you have to specify position of the scenery Tongass layers (higher and Lower) in FTX Central v3 so that Tongass lower is right below openLC. (May need to add a layer line in the xml to hold this position).

Can get a bit confusing but this gives you something to play with!

So your latest tours awards were for completions of Tour 26 MFC0026 Kenai Peninsula, Tour 27 Western Chugach, Tour 28 Kenai-Valdez run and during the last trip obtained the MFC 400 flights milestone.

Looks like the site generated a duplicate entry for you on tour 27. I can't tell but it appears you completed Tour 27 seven months ago but on your return tried to rejoin tour 27.  Not positive here because your profile switched to "on leave" when you were away but there is definitely a duplicate/phantom entry that was recently re-created on that tour under your name. No idea why that happened but will remove the duplication asap. In any event, you completed tour 27 a while ago and the award does show on your profile.
