Prepar3D-Version 4 / ai planes following sloped runways
« on: March 06, 2020, 12:20:51 AM »
If anyone is tempted to try this dll:


It does work at PAKT - but the downside is it completely screws up all the Tongass floatplanes and boats.

Addon Scenery and Enhancements / Halibut Cove in the Filson Journal

Just got a new Filson catalog in the mail and noticed they had a write up about the Saltry Restaurant in Halibut cove:

General Discussion / AI Lights Reborn Professional Edition
« on: October 23, 2019, 12:33:17 AM »
I have installed this program and been checking things out.
Thought everything was working great until I noticed that the boat wakes on all the tongass and halibut cove boats somehow got screwed up and are not working correctly.

Not absolutely sure it was caused by the lights program - but that was the only thing I have done/changed.
So be cautious if you want to give it a try.

OK, I finally tracked it down to a feature of the Professional version that allows you to select between Default P3D, UHD, and 4K optimization.
When you select 4K ( I have a 4K screen) it completely borks the wakes on the older Tongass boats and the Halibut Cove boats.
Don't know if there is a solution to the 4K problem, but reverting back to Default P3D fixed it.
Don't want to talk about how long it took me to figure this one out  >:(

Further Update:

Reply from Simbol, the Reborn author:

 It means they have declared their wake effects as LIGHTS. Also check if their category is boat and no airplanes, have seem that before.

Not much I can do to help here.. Since P3D 4.5 all effects declared as lights will be treated differently by the GPU card. What my setting does is take advantage of this and use it to scale lights more close to real world operations.

If this really bothers you, you can use AILRP with the default P3D scaling algorithms. That is why the setting is there for.


Addon Scenery and Enhancements / Halibut Cove plane floating in air

General Discussion / AI Float traffic for Taku Lodge
« on: August 03, 2019, 01:39:20 PM »
Anyone have this?
Pretty sure I had this at one time but can't find it or the package it is included with.


Edit: Found it - part of the SAK seaplane package - but I can't get the planes to show up so either a problem with the traffic file or the ADE file - anyone with the SAK seaplane package installed see the float planes at the Taku Lodge?

2nd Edit: Got the planes to show - watched a Wings of Alaska Beaver land and taxi to the dock, but planes won't depart, they just vanish instead of taxiing for departure.

Addon Scenery and Enhancements / Yes Bay Lodge V2 Smoke
« on: March 27, 2019, 02:12:06 PM »
Decided to start a new topic on this.
The new revised Yes Bay Lodge v2 has the detached smoke problem - when viewed from a distance the smoke is rising 10' above the chimneys.
This is in P3D v4.4

Addon Scenery and Enhancements / Refreshing TWC Part2 and question
« on: February 21, 2019, 01:01:43 PM »
Hi Rod,
I downloaded the "refreshed TWC Part2" and the readme first doc has this instruction:


This location requires the 2/11/2019 Library & Objects Update ... see scenery page for download.
This location requires the RTMM Library Part IV (See Objects Library Page for download and instructions)

Required Scenery for each location is on the Scenery page at the bottom of each scenery location's entry.


Where is the "2/11/2019 Library & Objects Update found? Or has it been incorporated into the Library Part IV ?

Addon Scenery and Enhancements / refreshed taku lodge has old smoke problem
« on: February 14, 2019, 07:53:40 PM »
I just downloaded the 2019 refreshed taku lodge and installed it.
Maybe I screwed something up but when I went to look the smoke was 10' above the chimneys
could be the smoke fix didn't get included in the refresh?

Addon Scenery and Enhancements / Tyee Dock
« on: July 17, 2018, 05:58:35 PM »
I just noticed the dock is missing at the Tyee Power Station (the one down on salt water)Anyone have an Idea which file and/or textures I'm missing.
I'm using P3D v4.3 and have all the RTMM libraries up to date - I think.
Have had the power project installed since it was done but can't remember if I ever visited the dock at saltwater at Tyee before.

hi Dex
Installed your ai traffic for lake hood and see you might have missed this discussion back in Jan.?

anyway the new afcad fixes the stranding problem - converts a bunch of taxiways and runways to water instead of asphalt and concrete.
