These are awesome! Thank you.

I use Pilot's FS Global Ultimate Next Gen mesh and I own most ORBX products. I have had numerous issues with ORBX region, ORBX free and paid airports, and default P3D airport elevations even at the typical ORBX recommended 5m setting in P3D. I can usually work them out using a combination of ORBX Vector Airport Elevation Correction (AEC), Pilot's AFM2 AEC software, and sometimes I have to go searching for all instances of files which contain the ICAO for the airport in question to disable an offending airport correction file that the former do not correct. I don't know if FreeMesh has an AEC tool, since I've never used it. If it does, then try the various combinations using it along with Vector.

Be sure to try all combinations of enabling/disabling AEC in Vector and AFM (or FreeMesh tool) before digging for files. Sometimes even after using these tools I have to go and find some buried airport elevation correction file and disable or enable it manually. These are found in under the scenery folder in FSX and P3D. There are a few cases where some (typically) obscure airport just won't ever be quite right.

I prefer to stick with the FSGU NG mesh because it does look amazing in VFR flight and in some areas it makes all the difference, such as my home airport and area of KGAI where ORBX only has the OpenLC coverage.

If I am flying to a new airport I will load up the sim at that airport to ensure the airport is not in need of some adjustment. Nothing more frustrating than losing your immersion after setting up a complex flight plan in a PMDG aircraft and arriving at an airport whose taxiways and runways are like tunnels 50 feet under the surrounding land.   :-\

All that said, most airports work just fine.

Thank you all for the warm welcome.  Looks like there's a of of work and flying ahead.  So many sceneries to install and fly. I read the story about Misty and her place. Powerful stuff.


General Discussion / Some incorrect links on Scenery page
« on: May 24, 2019, 03:55:20 AM »

I am just about to load up my first RTMM scenery and I noticed some incorrect links on the page.  I wanted to report them here.  I thought someone would like to know. I see a lot of new updates were posted in the last few days.

I noticed a couple earlier today.  I'll add others as I find them.

  • Hang Em High Resorts - "Map" link is same as "Read Me" PDF link
  • Cabins by the Lakes II v2.0 - "Map" link missing completely
  • High Mine (Uncle Skeeter's) - Missing FS "VFR Haines to Uncle Skeeter's High"
  • Owikeno Lake Area - "Map" links to a corrupt and tiny 3kb file. Got the real map from TIC page
I managed the Hang Em High Resorts Map on the Wayback Internet Archive page from March 31, 2016

And many of the "TIC" pages are missing graphics,  particularly the first graphic at the top of page.

Hi all,
My name is Jim.  I'm an avid flight sim pilot and previously pilot IRL. I've been flying sims since MSFS 1.0 back in the `80s.  I've always dreamt of flying IRL in Alaska and it's one of my favorite VFR flight areas in P3Dv4.

I just loaded up the RTMM libraries for the first time today. I already own nearly all ORBX products. They have a boat plane load of my money.  I bought Tongass Fjords X today to fill the gap and to allow me to try RTMM sceneries.

I am just about to load up my first RTMM scenery and I noticed some incorrect links to map graphics on the page.  I managed to find them on the Wayback version of that page from March 31, 2016, but I wanted to report them here. I'll post in the general thread with those.

I am a Navy veteran, electronics engineer turned computer engineer 35 years ago. I'm very capable of solving any PC issues. I spent my youth growing up in Europe as an Air Force brat. After the Navy I lived most my adult life in Washington, DC area with some long stints in Europe.

FFS, these Captcha things are a PITA.
