Misty Flying Club and Multi Player / Re: Cigar Box locking up mid flight
« on: September 23, 2019, 08:12:53 PM »
I am having the same problem.  Flew the Telegraph Creek to Gilbert Bay 3 times since yesterday.  I did not notice the problem on the first flight until after landing and trying to file the Pirep.  On the other two flights CigarBox locked up shortly after T/O. and the program behaved as others have described.



I will try flying leg 2 from Yes Bay Lodge to Bronson Creek as you suggested.  Only have one twin tail wheel amphibian, the Grumman Goose.  The other amphib twins I have are the PBY and Mallard.  The Goose seems the best choice even though it is smaller than the C-47.

Thanks for your help.


My FSX Flightplanner located Navman's Retreat as the destination in the 1st leg of Shortfield-Glaciers Tour.  The Flightplanner has not been able to locate Navman's Retreat as the start of the 2nd leg in Shortfield-Glaciers Tour.  The documentation did not indicate the 2nd leg of the Tour needed to be saved.   I have not had any problems with the Flightplanner recognizing/loading FLPs up to this point.  Maybe I should fly the 1st leg again and save it?  Have you any thoughts on what might be going on?

Completed MFC0002 Misty Hub Excursion the evening of July 2, 2019.  Getting the hang of the VA environment and enjoying the flying quite a bit.  Look forward to future tours.



Thanks for the help, Norm.

I thought it might be that Eddystone Rock was not a starting point recognized by the program. I was confused in that it was recognized as a destination.   I'll fly the flight again and save it this time.  Also will read the tour documentation more thoroughly from now on.


With all programs set up for a Tour departure-Flt Pln loaded in FSX and "OK" is selected the Flag that asks "do you want to move aircraft to departure location" does not come up.  I have reloaded earlier Hub Excursion Flt Plns and the move aircraft flag comes up in each".   Any thoughts on the problem would be appreciated.


Thanks Norm,

I also had question about adding an aircraft to the drop down menu in the Cigar box. I fly a Milviz DHC2 amphib N323KT.  I thought the XXX...'s in the last spot on the Cigar box aircraft list were for a user to add an aircraft.    After reading your responses to "emko" DC6 and others,  I realized the MFC fleet additions require specifications and performance to be included and cannot be done by user.


Hello, I am William Butler and recently returned to Misty Moorings after an extended absence and new to Misty Flying Club.  First I would like to thank Norm Richards for his help in getting me setup in Misty Moorings and Misty Flying Club. His expertise is invaluable.

I have now completed The Misty Triangle Introductory Tour and the first two legs of the Hub Excursion and believe I have the Cigars program, individual FP bidding, Tour bidding, and Pirep submission, etc. down.  I do have a question: How are aircraft from my FSX fleet entered into Cigars?  I have tried to enter the A/C reg. and type in the XXXXX-XXX-XXX location in Cigars to no avail.  Any help would be appreciated.

I am thoroughly enjoying the flying.

Completed Tour MFCT0001-Misty Triangle Introductory Excursion on the early morning of June 24, 2019.

For me it was a challenge to learn all aspects required to complete a successful Misty Flying Club flight, never having flown in a VA environment.  It has been enjoyable and at times frustrating but I look forward to beginning Tour MFCT0002-Misty Hub Excursion.


Help and Troubleshooting / Re: RTMM Flight Plans Don't Load
« on: April 30, 2019, 10:25:14 PM »
I placed the the FLPs in (C:)\ FP\RTMM Flight Plans.  The first flight plan. the one from, Gustavos loaded and I flew it.  After that none of the other flight plans would load.  The Gustavos plan also loaded from folder with longer path. Go figure.  I am at loss at this point.  I wish I could edit the FPLN file.  How did you create your shortened flight plan file?

Thanks for your time and effort.

I downloaded TestFP.Zip into my documents/Flight Simulator X/Test FLPs folder.  Extracted the test flight plans.  I was able to load all with the FSX Flight Planner: 1. Gustavos Parking 13  RAMP GA SMALL--no destination but route show on map, 2. Juneau int Parking 1 RAMP GA MEDIUM--- Admiralty Cove Cabin,  3.Misty's Place(PF20) -17---Aiken Creek Camp (AIKC) Flew this one, 4. Haines Junction (CYHT) -4 --- Aishihik Lake North Cabin (ALNC) , and 5. Haines Junction (CYHT) - 4 ---Aishihik Lake South Ruins (ALSR).  The Flight Plans extracted from the RTMM-MFC_Flight_Plans still do not load and I am not sure how to edit them.  It seems the files are somehow "security" protected.  Also noted that Juneau int. in my system has "spikes and runway covered" elevation-mesh problem?  I am not sure my scenery order is completely correct.

Thanks!  I am headed in the right direction.  With little more "schooling" I should get their.

Norm,  thanks for your reply. Below is an example flight plan that I have tried to load with no success.  Other plans have gotten the same results-- no load.

Aiken Creek Cabin (AIKC) from Misty's Place (PF20) -1200 RSA-L-W-----------------  MFC0003A.pln

It is in the C:\Users\WilliamB\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\Flight Simulator Flight Sets\RTMM Flight Plans  directory.  When the flight plan is in the selection window I select "open"  and am taken back up RTMM Flight Plans where all 717 plans are listed. I reduced the number of dashes to no avail.  I am at a loss- I don't think the plan is more than 264 characters.  I am not sure if my directory structure is correct.  I am also not sure I am using the Flight Planner correctly.  I select flight plannerj select load, select desired flight pln, wait until the pln is in the lower window then select open then load again where I am taken back up to the window with the directory where all the plans reside.  Also I never get a chance to save.

If you see anything else that might be wrong let me know.   My OS is Windows 7 pro.

Thanks again.


Norm I am adding to my response.  1St thanks for your welcome 2nd The extraction file I use is what ever Windows 7 pro uses as it extracts automatically when file is selected. 3rd I copied the a Flightplan file from my old computer:  " #Aiken Creek Camp RTMM from Mistys Place.pln", .  It has a very short path to as it is on my external G:/ drive.  Ran FSX opened the Flightplanner selected the above directly from the G: drive and it loaded.  This Aiken Misty's plan is also shorter than the one above I downed loaded in The RTMM File.  I am having trouble editing those plans.  I would like to shorten all the plans but am not sure how to edit them?

Thanks again for your help.
