Misty's Caribbean Air Project Update!!

Steve Weinkamer has done it again!! He's used his magic wand and given us some beautiful custom objects to work with in the Caribbean. First of all, big thank you to Steve for all his time and energy in converting and making these objects usable in the simulations. And also to Chris "MoCat" Carel who kindly gave us permission to use his previously created objects for the "MoCat's Seaplane Tours" scenery done way back in FS2004. Steve had to convert each of the objects in those old FS9 libraries to make them compliant in P3D v4.

We have a custom logo for the project now that you'll see on a sign attached to the side of one of the buildings. It's a great looking logo I think. Steve asked me to look into some free sketch-up objects that might be usable as well for the tropical atmosphere I'm hoping to depict with these scenery areas on Misty's Caribbean Air. I found a lot of great looking tropical vegetation that you'll see in some of the following screen shots. They sure look good to me. Banana tree, bamboo, Heleconia, Caladium, Bird of Paradise, and lot's of unique palm trees that help give a unique look to the scenery I'm building.

I also want to share some pictures of Dex Thomas's upcoming AI Traffic for the Misty's Caribbean Air project. I'm still working on some of that scenery though so it's not quite ready for prime time. But you'll see that in the not to distant future. Dex and I have been working for a few weeks now and have over a dozen seaplane airports created for the project. The traffic is great looking so far.

Greg Goodwin is busy working on the rest of the Bahamas Islands scenery and that will expand the area of discovery when it's done.

Finally, Klaus is in with us on doing some aircraft repaints and once we get some pics from the paint meister, we'll be sure to share them here.

So enjoy the pictures and thanks for your interest in Misty's Caribbean Air Adventures!!

Happy New Year 2020!! Since being inspired by Doug's excellent "Hawaii" getaway adventure scenery, I wanted to escape from the great white north so much that I spent time flying there a lot recently. I love all of the little touches that Doug's done on the Hawaiian Island chain. So much so that it made me want to find a spot I could also help bring some of the beauty of the islands to life.

But Doug pretty much covered those fantastic islands so i needed to look elsewhere. Well it took me awhile but I found the place I want to take a break at. The Bahamas.

Gregory Goodwin has given the freeware world an unbelievable scenery package. You can search for and find it on AVSIM and Flightsim.com. Just Look for "Bahama's P3D" or "Gregory Goodwin Bahamas". It's free and works with FSX or P3D v4 just fine. You'll see what I mean. It's fantastic. See for yourself with a few pictures I took on a flight around the Exuma Chain.

Note that Greg did all of the Vector, Landclass and Waterclass creation. Object placement, shoreline enhancements, etc. everything. Just stellar work from one developer and it's all free. Also, included in this archive package is 24 custom object enhanced airports that were created by Art Poole. His objects really look fantastic and are based on real world airport buildings and designs. Great looking all around.

 Now where does RTMM come into this equation? Well I reached out to Greg and we talked. He is interested in letting others help develop on top of his Bahamas package so, I'm recruiting some of the team here at RTMM to hopefully join in on my idea for a new project that will allow users to visit some warm locations in the islands when they might want to also get away from Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. It is a nice way to experience some of our enhancements along the way by stopping in new locations like Hawaii which has been at RTMM for us before and now the Caribbean is open for business too!!!

 I'm going to enjoy this and hope that it's not one last project for the RTMM team. I don't believe that the upcoming FS2020 will take all sim enthusiast's away. There could be challenges that are at this point unforeseen but entirely possible. So, I'm not throwing in the towel on RTMM just yet. My creative juices are flowing so, I needed to get away and get busy again. Life's too short and then,.... well.. you know. Get busy living or get busy dying.

Right now, Dex Thomas and I are currently just beginning to develop some ideas for AI Float plane traffic that can help give the islands and shorelines some active ops. Also going to add some AI land based traffic too. We're going to also work on some scenery locations that will have sound files embedded around so you can pull up, shut down and get a little sense of the islands. (Can you hear the Steel drums anybody? No not yet? Well give us some time and you will)

I'm looking into some ideas for creating some custom repaints that could be done by our excellent aircraft paint meister, Mr. Klaus Troeppner. Maybe have some flyable models with a cool tropical "Misty" livery. Like Klaus did for us on the Blue Wave Energy Partners aircraft, this would be very nice to have to sell the theme of the project.

It sure would be great to have Norm and the MFC club pilots island hopping in the Caribbean someday soon. The potential for flight plans down here are endless. Maybe a flight to TNCM and Princess Juliana airport? Sure. Why not? It's out there. We don't have to always fly in the cold, rainy, climates I say.

I've asked Doug to consider doing some small areas like he did in Hawaii if he has the time and energy after organizing the website which is his first priority, but when he want's to do some island hopping and finds a nice cove to work his magic, that would be nice to see again.

Maybe Rod might like to work in some scenery that's looking for something with his excellent eye for details like Chugach, or Hollis Harbor or Ketchikan Harbor.

 How about if Steve came up with some island style objects and signs? His work has been a must have for me in locations I want to enhance. So, If he's not to busy that is. (He's always busy that guy)

 Doc Thomas Menzel put together one of the coolest packages recently when he took on the entire island of Kodiak and created a lot of fine looking spots to land at on the island. Hey Doc! How'd you like to take on the Pirates of the Caribbean?

 I can see Robert coming up with island scenery videos that would be beautiful to check out for sure. Jeff and Dieter helping along the way with waypoints, testing, collaboration.

And I'm open for more ideas and so is Greg who's given us the green light to put something together that can help make this scenery stand out even more. I know we can easily make that happen. And for me, it's something to look forward to because over the last nine plus years, my hobby has been working with this team at RTMM and they've been happy to play along with some of my crazy ideas. (CIRP, Halibut Cove, BWEP to name a few)

That's been my proudest accomplishment. Helping build this team into the group it is. I missed interacting with each of you the last four 1/2 years really since I was busy with work and laying pipe on BWEP. I did feel kind of on my own with that project. Yes there was a lot of creative ideas that we did early in the BWEP Project but for the last few years, it was really me, alone with pipe after pipe to line-up. Nope, I'm done. Over that. I need some salt, sand and seaside Pina' Colada's ASAP!!!

So, get ready for something different and something new. Misty's Caribbean Adventures "The Bahamas" is coming.

Addon Scenery and Enhancements / BWEP: The North Slope RELEASED!!
« on: December 18, 2019, 08:22:14 AM »
The last area of the Blue Wave Energy Partners project is now ready for release. The North Slope begins an over 800 mile journey from Prudhoe Bay to the terminus at Valdez for the BWEP Pipeline. Here's some images from the North Slope.

Addon Scenery and Enhancements / BWEP: Gates of the Arctic RELEASED!!
« on: December 04, 2019, 10:46:09 PM »
On the BWEP Page now, you can get the latest edition of Blue Wave Energy Partners Pipeline. Gate's of the Arctic. This journey will take you through some of the most breathtaking terrain but also some of the most beautiful scenery north of the Arctic Circle.

 It follows the BWEP Pipeline through the mountains and even crosses over the dangerous Atigun Pass. Helicopter and fixed wing pilots will be challenged up here.

 It's taken quite some time to get this edition of BWEP ready for prime time. I think the payoff is worth all the work it takes.

Hope you like it and please post some screenshots if you get the chance too. Here's a few I took:

I've flown into this RTMM location on many occasions but never noticed this nice little touch at Wood Lake Research Station by Jay Langham and updated for FSX/P3D by Mike Broemme before.

I hid a rabid raccoon at several locations (Bronson Creek and Driftwood Depot) that I wonder if people ever noticed but come on, tennis shoes hanging on a power line? That's pretty unique in the sim.

Great stuff Guys!

I've discovered a new favorite vacation destination. The Caribbean. Using Ultimate Terrain X TAC, Paul Wheeler scenery for the Leeward Islands, Active Sky weather and REX Texture Direct textures for clouds and water.

Sorry but I may never leave.

For any users of the Hawaii Photoreal sceneries, Javier has issued a new update that adds some new autogen enhancements and includes some AI aircraft mod updates that were done by Steve Weinkamer from our team. The readme file for the update also includes some credits for the RTMM team that helped out.

Check out the website to get the latest update. It's free. PLUS right now, there's a 33% discount on all of the Hawaii Photoreal scenery AND the Society Islands too!! I definitely recommend these scenery addons if you want some high quality areas to discover in the tropics. Very well done by Javier.

General Discussion / BWEP SAK and BWEP Richardson Readme files MIA
« on: July 26, 2019, 11:56:36 AM »
So does anybody have a copy of the readme files that we did for BWEP SAK and BWEP Richardson Highway? Doug is doing some updates to the BWEP pages and we can’t seem to locate them.

I recently did a new PC build and it seems that I lost my copies of the original zipfiles that I created that included them. I can’t locate them and they’re MIA here on our site.

Thanks

General Discussion / ORBX new HD Buildings
« on: June 29, 2019, 08:41:52 PM »
So ORBX has released their HD Buildings. Curious how this will change things that we've used in the past with autogen buildings placed in our scenery locations. For example, at Nina's Landing, I used autogen buildings to construct that location. I'm not getting the product yet because I shy away from purchasing anything anymore when it first comes out.
