General Discussion / MS Releases New Simulator Specs

Uhhhh.... I don't think so until I win the lottery, which I never waste my hard earned money playing anyway.


Website Discussion / 404 Error
« on: August 13, 2019, 04:45:48 PM »
Getting a 404 error when trying to download BWEP Airports, Package B.


An updated RTMM Required FSXP3D Libraries Part IV is now available for download, and it is a mandatory replacement for all versions downloaded previously to 4/15/19. This update fixes a few problems that have been discovered since the last release. Please delete any previous version of the RTMM Required FSXP3D Libraries Part IV that you may already have.

IMPORTANT: I also discovered an orphaned effect file "hiding" in several of the CIRP scenery folders and have added it to the Effects\ Universal Effects folder. Copy all of the files contained in that folder to your main Effects folder and overwrite when prompted. This will insure that you have all of the necessary RTMM effect files. The only other changes are within the Scenery and Texture folders and the removal of one of the read me files that was accidentally duplicated. To avoid error messages on your next boot up, be sure to reset your FSX or P3D scenery library pointers to the proper folder after unzipping within in your Addon Scenery location.


General Discussion / Afternoon with Rod
« on: February 28, 2019, 07:40:56 PM »
I spent the afternoon with Rod today getting caught up with the newest things in the flight sim world.
Rod showed me what Orbx True Earth GB South for P3Dv4 has to offer. I must say it's quite impressive and the future looks bright for the next generation of simming. Thanks for the tour, your hospitality and great conversation, Rod.


PS Rod has an amazing hardware setup that he's put together.

Object Libraries for RTMM / New RTMM Object Library
« on: February 13, 2019, 03:45:23 PM »
There's a new object library that's now up and running, RTMM Required Object LibrariesFSXP3D Part IV_02.11.19 This is a mandatory maintenance upgrade. Failure to install will result in scenery problems!

The entire process should probably take less than 45 minutes to complete.

You can find it here:

The library package contains various fixes and improvements to a number of RTMM object libraries and RTMM scenery files. It is EXTREMELY important to carefully read the documentation found n each folder in order to make the changes and additions to your RTMM installation as easy and efficient as possible. It is imperative that ALL of the files in this package are installed, without skipping or ignoring any of them. Failure to do so can, and will, make it difficult to RTMM staff to debug future issues users may have with their scenery.

It also consolidates objects, textures and effects that were scattered around in numerous scenery files. The sceneries that they were pulled from have been repackaged, and you should download the new versions, delete and replace with the newest. Full documentation is enclosed in the RTMM Required Object LibrariesFSXP3D Part IV_02.11.19 download. Keep an eye on the scenery page for the latest versions.

I'd like to give a big personal thank you to Doug and Norm for helping me fix the bugs and in making sure that everything is up and running correctly on the website. Their work and help behind the scenes was incredible.

I think a good flush is needed around here! Jeesh.  :(


General Discussion / Sad News

Most RTMM forum members who have been around for a while are most likely familiar with J.J. Yolton, a.k.a. "jsapair."  I helped him with several computer and RTMM problems in the past, we've struck up a long distance friendship outside of RTMM, correspond back and forth upon occasion, and have even had phone conversations. J.J. lives in the mountains of Northern California near an old mining town, not too far where the  infamous Oroville Dam, which was in danger of collapsing last year, is located. This is the same area that is currently being ravaged by the Camp Fire-Paradise wildfire. I got this email from him late last night that he wanted me to share with the RTMM community.

"It got us. First indication we had that a wind-driven fire was even coming was when a propane tank in the area exploded, followed by huge billows of smoke. I thought a plane crashed. Then saw flames across the street. Time to go. Thankfully my kid was here visiting. We got my travel trailer hooked up, managed to grab my guns, laptop, and a tote bag of clothes, and hauled ass. When we left, the house directly across the street was in flames.

The escape route was a joke, total gridlock, and both my vehicles were low on fuel. Had to leave them along the way and ride with my kid, who was towing my trailer. I think my vehicles are out of the fire perimeter but I'm %99 sure my house is gone, as indicated by an attached picture of my neighbor's house. The town of Paradise is virtually wiped off the map...stores, banks, businesses...a disaster of epic proportions, and they're just scratching the surface.

We're safe, my trailer parked at my kid's place some 70 miles away. Long term, don't know what I'm going to do. Certainly can't return to a devastated war zone with no water or power. Tried to post to RTMM but they wouldn't take my .jpeg attachment so I wrote you instead. I just wanted to encourage people to donate to the Red Cross i.e, Camp Fire. I, personally, don't need anything, but thousands of people fled with nothing and will need every bit of help they can get. So maybe you could post that request for me? I'd appreciate it pal. I seem to be a little pre-occupied. Just got internet service here today so have a lot of catch-up to do.


Please keep J.J and all of those who have been affected by the out of control California fires in your thoughts and prayers as they attempt to restore their lives. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose everything in a natural disaster and have to start over from scratch; sadly many people go through total loss on a regular basis, and even lose their lives when disaster strikes. If you'd like to post and share your thoughts and/or condolences to J.J., I'll pass them along to him.

I came across this MILViz Beaver promotional video. Does anybody recognize anything?


General Discussion / Just Flight Releases DHC-3 Otter
« on: October 12, 2017, 01:37:30 PM »
Just Flight just released their new DHC-3 DeHavilland Otter. Info Here:

The $37.99 price seems a little bit stiff to me, but it is what it is. Having flown in both radial and turbo Otters, the screenshots of the model and panel look pretty good to me at first glance.


General Discussion / Brad, Rod and Steve Meet For Lunch
« on: July 08, 2017, 03:40:21 PM »
Brad, Rod, our wives and I got together this afternoon for lunch in Lyndhurst, Ohio (just outside of Cleveland.) Great conversation and shop talk between the guys while the wives got to know each other. Always a pleasure to visit with and enjoy the company of fellow RTMM'ers and just plain nice folks.

General Discussion / New BWEP Library
« on: June 01, 2017, 10:25:34 AM »
Doug's posted the latest BWEP objects library on the objects libraries page:

I recommend that all users download this library even if you don't plan on installing the BWEP project scenery. The BWEP object library contains objects that may possibly be used in future non-BWEP scenery.


General Discussion / A Revolutionary Concept In Model Building
« on: April 01, 2017, 08:59:39 AM »
Posted 4/1/17
I do all of my object design and modeling using Sketchup. The Sketchup developers have released a new product that will revolutionize CAD and all forms of 3D modeling. Even if you've never heard of Sketchup and have no idea about it or have any interest in modeling and design, this will still fascinate everyone who has any interest in computing at all. Enjoy.


General Discussion / More From The Co-Pilot's Seat
« on: March 07, 2017, 05:09:14 PM »
Here's some video that I took last June on my most recent Canadian bush fishing trip in the Quebec wilderness, north of the 52nd parallel. This area is access controlled by the native Cree community and is located in lands where their ancestors have lived, hunted and fished for unknown and countless generations.

7 of us flew 70 miles into a remote fishing camp in a well worn DHC-3 Turbo Otter workhorse. The DCH-3 is the Beaver's big brother with much higher load capacity, and the turbine engine is much faster and quieter than the "stock" Otter radial. Even though I included a few still shots of the camp and a couple of "activity" shots, my primary focus is to once again show how things look and operate inside of the cabin and the views out the windows rather than post a video that concentrates on catching fish, which we did aplenty!

Probably one of the most interesting clips is the Otter backing up and "parallel" parking at the dock as we were leaving for the return trip. The pilot is obviously well seasoned in bush operations.

If you chose to watch this on YouTube instead of here, I've included a little more information to read. Just press the "YouTube" icon on the lower right.



General Discussion / From the Co-pilot's Seat

It only took me nearly 5 years, but I finally put this up on YouTube This is my first YouTube upload.

I shot this from the co-pilot's seat and was mostly interested in the gauges, controls and what the pilot was doing during the flight. The panel is fitted with a neat gauge (the one that flickers on the upper right of the panel because of the digital camera.) The gauge provides various information for each individual cylinder in the engine such as cylinder head temperature, exhaust gas temperature, oil pressure and temperature, etc. and he can toggle back and forth from cylinder to cylinder to get information from each one.

This flight was from a bush fishing camp in the James Bay Region of Quebec, in the middle of nowhere, to a small, remote float plane dock just off of the James Bay Highway. This is in the sub-arctic watershed where the terrain is pretty flat, but has a huge amount of lakes and rivers that empty into James Bay (the lower arm of Hudson Bay.) The sleepy, bored looking guys in the rear seats are my 2 brothers and my older son, who is in the middle. Enjoy!


Oh ya, the pike I'm holding in my profile photo was caught on that trip.
