Hello Duke,
     Welcome to the RTMM forum.  I think you're seeing dark spots, or shadows on slopes, etc. that the sim interprets as water.  It is a known issue, I believe.  I've seen it on my sim quite often.  I can't remember if there is a fix for it though, so I'm not much help.  :-\
     If you could start a thread and post a pic or two of the area, we could wrap our heads around it.  Also, empty your shader cache folder regularly.  It couldn't hurt.   ;)

Welcome Monty!  Be sure to check out the Misty Flying Club also.  I can't believe Norm didn't mention it.   ::)

(raising a glass for Spud!  Miss you, friend.)  :'(

     I would just like to add that it is extremely difficult to own a flight simulator program and not deal with config files.  The vanilla, OOBE sim is ok to start with.  But if you start adding ANYTHING, you've got to configure the sim to run it.
     Installing TFX is well worth the effort, for the improvements it brings to the area.  Not to mention the compatibility issues you'll face by trying not to use it.

Announcement:  Airport Design Editor version 1.78 available now.  Go to the new site to download it.   ;)
Latest ADE Version Released

The title says it all.  We have today released ADE 1.78.  For downloads please visit our new website

Here are some details of what is in the new version:

 :)  Replace the GUID of a placed library object or objects with another - i.e. change one object for another
 :)  Basic converter for scasm based bgl files to xml based
 :)  Filter object types in Marquee selection to enable multiple objects of the same type to be edited together
 :)  New update checker and installer which no longer relies on third party code and software
 :)  Diagnostics menu to make it easier to trouble shoot issues and bugs
 :)  Library Object Manager bulk category rename; category selector and ability to update a library already in the LOM in light of new or changed objects
 :)  Updater for stock indexes to reflect changes users may make in the stock files. Also useful as trouble shooter
 :)  Removed support for P3D v1.4. Supported versions are FS9, FSX, P3Dv2, P3D v3 and P3D v4
 :)  Sending ADE logs is now done via email. This appears more reliable than uploading them. This change does not in any way use your email account or provider. It uses a standalone SMTP service
 :)  Update to detailed footprint generator to enable the display of footprints for small objects. Thanks Arno
for making the changes to your library


 ;)  Crash when adding GP Poly is cancelled by user

 ;)  Bug when updating parking spots related to jetways
 ;)  Error when decompiling mdl files created by P3D v4.4 compiler
 ;)  Bug in Fault Finder that caused error when trying to repair a runway link with the wrong runway ID
 ;)  Enter Key erroneous behavior in Library Object Manager and Add New Library Object
 ;)  Silent CTD when clicking Send Log menu item where no project is loaded
 ;)  Bug that caused error message when loading objects into the Library Object Manager
 ;)  Bug reported with Extended Compile where non compilable XML related to footprints is passed to the compiler should be fixed

William Butler Pilot MFC0105 completed Tour MFC0009 Stewart CIRP Circuit Pass on 2019/12/23.
Look forward to landing on some of these Ice Stations.


     I'm sure you meant to report this in the MFC Tour Completion thread. 
(This thread is about upcoming tours.)  ;)  No big deal. 

     It would be good not to mix them up though.   :P

Hello ADE users.  I thought I'd share some info I received in my email the other day.

     Jon Masterson over at Scruffyduck has a new website.  He is the developer of the ADE program (Airport Design Editor) that scenery designers use to edit and create airports.  You can check out his new site here:


     I urge you to support this developer if you value his efforts.  8)

Here is a copy/paste of the email announcement:
Well another year is almost over and I hope that it has been kind to you.  I would like to wish all of you who celebrate it a Very Happy Christmas and I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2020.

First I would like to tell you about a new website that we are testing at the moment.  try it out here*   I hope you will take a look and let us know what you think.  The old site will be available for a few more weeks but we will turn it off in the new year.

Second I am pleased to announce that we are about to release a new version of ADE.  This will be version 1.77 (some of you may already have seen it as a development build).  It has been a long time coming but finally it should be available in the very near future.  In keeping with my current approach this is an incremental development on the previous versions so there won't be any fantastic new features (sorry).  However there are quite a few new or updated features and we have managed to blitz a few bugs.

I will send out another email when it becomes available with more details on what's new and what is fixed.

Meantime thank you all for your continued support

Best wishes

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too, Robert.  Thank you.  Great video, as usual.   8)

I just wanted to mention that I use "Wheel Stand Pro" to hold my flight yoke, trim wheel, and rudder pedals.  I highly recommend them.  I bought two.  The other one is for my G27 steering wheel setup for driving sims.


I guess one of the real questions is how is the learning curve on using the simulator for the average person without too much additional instruction/walkthrough help?

     The learning curve is different for each aircraft.  Are they flying Ultra-lites or DHC-2 Beavers?     Wheels or floats.  Taking off and landing the plane, or just starting the flight in the air?

     I like the idea of them just sitting and watching a video of someone else flying the tour better.   ;)

Addon Scenery and Enhancements / Re: BWEP: The North Slope RELEASED!!
« on: December 19, 2019, 03:43:41 PM »
Just finished flying the North Slope pipeline section.  Really nicely done.  One item to mention, the static B206s at SAG were semi-transparent.  The Army helicopter displayed ok.  I was flying P3dV4.5 at early dawn/night time frame.

Great jobs.  Really enjoy the work put into the BWEP project.


The transparent heli issue is being addressed at this moment.  A fix is at hand.  Wait for it's release soon.  ;)

It's   A L I V E !   Mwah, hah hah.   And now the thread has over 215 thousand views and two three more years have gone by since Spud was givin' it hell for us going off topic here.  RIP Spud.  ::)

Congrats, Brad, on completing this great project.  It's a thing of beauty.   8)

Hello Erika,
     Welcome to RTMM.  Thanks for taking the time to say "hi", and for asking our advice/help here.  I suppose we'll be seeing you around here a bit as you get things set up.  We'd be happy to help along the way if you need it.   :)
