Comms: (Voice Communication)


Discord:

We do have our own voice and text server on Discord for MFC/RTMM and plenty of Voice rooms as well as informational text rooms, photo rooms, MFC tour releases and help rooms/text and voice for any who may want to fly together in a group environment. Discord 's text rooms have direct drag & drop capability form small files to photos etc as well as multiple voice rooms for group comms plus capability for person to person calls etc.

Discord Application (Comms): https://discordapp.com/     
(There is a software version or browser version but software version preferred/better)

MFC Discord Server address (Comms): https://discord.gg/Q4Tm872
(I have set up multiple text rooms, multiple posting channels, help channels as well as several voice channels for group flying comms)



Teamspeak:

Referring to the above, some prefer Teamspeak (TS3) over Discord or for whatever reason cannot run Discord. So recently (2020) have set up a MFC-RTMM voice room on TS3 - under the TS3 digital theme Park server: 

To get to the MFC-RTMM TS3 Comms voice room: Install TS3, Go to Manage Bookmarks> Add bookmark >
Bookmark Name: MFC-RTMM Group Flights, Server Nickname or Address: ts3.digitalthemepark.com and click Apply to save the book mark. Then run it.

First time use on this digital theme park server: you will be in the Welcome room and an Staff/Admin will give you security for the digital theme park TS3 server. Once done (it only takes a moment), in TS3 navigate to:  Flight Division > Aviation Groups & Clubs > WFT We Fly Together and voice room: MFC-RTMM Group Flights MFC-RTMM.  Any in this room are voice connected. Server 24/7.

Multi-Clients for group flights

To run Group Flights you also require a Multi-Client is required. This joins most sims FSX, FSX-SE, P3Dv1-2-3-4 and X-plane to a universal network for group flying.

There are two good multi-clients out there. (There is also vatsim/vpilot but that network is not really used for VFR bush flying).

1. FSCloud (Multi-Sim Client): http://www.fscloud.net/  Install when the sim is running and Done. (Can be used to tune aircraft radio channels for Radio Comms and has it's own map system).  Run to connect and you're on the FSCloud network.

2. JoinFS (Multi-Sim Client Alternate): https://pmem.uk/joinfs/  Install then set a bookmark to access the Digital Thempark Server*  (server = aviator.digitalthemepark.com).  Start JoinFS, navigate to the aviator.digitalthemepark.com by use of the bookmark and you're on the JoinFS network.

TS3 is the updated version of Teamspeak. It can be used although until recently didn't have a dedicated channel for MFC or RTMM group flights. (But have set one up for users that prefer Teamspeak over Discord for some reason can't run Discord).

Object Libraries for RTMM / Re: New / Old user Needs help
« on: January 24, 2020, 11:50:05 AM »
Well that would explain it. Theses scenery pieces are all a manual add to the sim scenery via sim scenery lib or addon.xml (p3dv4x) to set them up. Glad that's figured out.

4
Many have set up RTMM scenery outside the root sim - Most of my add-ons are outside the sim. And in P3Dv4x one can either use the cfg files: IE scenery.cfg or addon.xml files to set up most scenery in the sim, and also be able to set up all of the other folders from the effects to fonts, gauges, simobjects, sound etc outside the sim.   

My RTMM scenery is set up on a separate HDD with main path as follows: 

My RTMM Object Libs Parts 1-2-3-4 are setup as a single consolidated library folder (This is the only consolidated folder). The Lib documentation show how to do this. (Part IV) is the last part and it goes over top 1-2-3 - so when you do Libs Part IV Overwrite ALL. 

My RTMM Libs parts/folders/paths are set up as follows:

L:\RTMM\01-RTMM Object Libraries 1-2-3-4
L:\RTMM\02-RTMM Medical-APP Library
L:\RTMM\03-RTMM BWEP Library
L:\RTMM\04-RTMM Scenery Object Tester                <<   (Scenery tester at Annette Island (PANT)
L:\RTMM\05-RTMM Addon Scenery <<<<<<< All of the rtmm add-on scenery pieces are in sub-folders

So under folder 05-RTMM Addon Scenery:
Paths as follows:

L:\RTMM\05-RTMM Addon Scenery\Aiken Creek Camp
L:\RTMM\05-RTMM Addon Scenery\Alaska Power North
L:\RTMM\05-RTMM Addon Scenery\Alaska Power South 
L:\RTMM\05-RTMM Addon Scenery\Tillei Lake Cabin

and so forth all the way to the last add-on scenery piece which is Yukon Crossing

L:\RTMM\05-RTMM Addon Scenery\Yukon Crossing
------------------------------------

Then Set up in the sim scenery and set ORBX insertion points:
FTX Entries (Orbx Airports and Regions) Inserted below > L:\RTMM\01-RTMM Object Libraries 1-2-3-4  and
ORBX Global openLC inserted below > Tongass Lower Priority.

DONE.

Some other notes:

If you're using add-on xml to set this up and have all the other pieces outside the sim, you also have to setup your effects, gauges, simobjects, sound etc.  (But you can also use the sim's .cfg files to set up or add locations of these folders or use add-on xml.)

(Can use all the .cfg files to set the paths for each piece are located in C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4). IE: Effects.cfg >> point to the effects folders to be read/loaded by the sim on startup. Gauges.cfg for gauges paths, Sound.cfg for sound/folders, scenery.cfg for the scenery folders or one can try to use add-on.xml files to do this but since there are over 240 scenery entries for RTMM scenery the add-on.xml is a bit complex way to do it.

Easiest is to unzip all the files to a temp folder then place them in the correct folders in a master structure then from your master structure to your designated sim location and setup those folders for use in the sim how you want to do it.   

For P3Dv4x users have to make sure to put in the Tongass Fjords revisions to the terrain.cfg and to the AI traffic models as well as the RTMM AI models revisions for use in P3Dv4x).

Hope something in this long note helps you Lantz?

(Talked to Harry yesterday via Discord.. maybe we should hold a conference call. lol!

General Discussion / Re: I've messed up my instalation....
« on: January 24, 2020, 06:55:05 AM »
Hi I am a new member and I have broken the golden rule already and I did not create folders and subfolders placement and naming correctly before installing the Libraries and sceneries. :-[   Will I need to uninstall everything and start from scratch or can I save the situation somehow? Thanks,Bill.

Rules are golden? well not really and most stuff can be adjusted if one knows what they are doing but it's when things get mixed up and break when it makes it nearly impossible to fix or even figure out what the problem file might be.

And it all depends what you might have done. If you have put all files into one scenery folder that will never work and you won't be able to sort out all the files so probably is best to delete that and start from scratch.

If you have the libs separate from the rtmm add-on scenery pieces/folders and insertion points in FTX Central (or Orbx Central) set correctly that the setup should work even if you just slightly modified the scenery folder names but they still contain the correct files. The only issue might be the scenery eswitcher not working if that is important to you. Other than that eswitcher piece, if you have the scenery folders intact as it is intended and those scenery folders correctly set up for your sim then all should be working ok (except the scenery Eswitcher) and it can be easily fixed but would have to take a look. 

Can you take screen shots of your scenery folders? And what sim are you running Bill?

William Butler pilot MFC0105 completed Tour MFC0011 Tongass National Forest on 01/16/20.

Enjoyed the Tour and learning to fly the Twin Otter!

WilliamB

The Twotter sure is a fun to fly, that is: once one learns how it reacts cause it's not an easy ship to keep under control. But once practiced is a nice ride. One of my favorite twin turbos!). You learned the DHC6 in this trip and nice work Bill. The award for MFC0011 Tongass National Forest has been added to your plot's page.

General Discussion / Re: Hi, I'm new! (introduce yourself here)
« on: January 14, 2020, 01:18:38 PM »
Hi there Doeke and welcome. (Again). I sent you a large email yesterday with all of the links to MFC, Comms and multi-clients so check your hotmail email account. (Look in your junk folder! Not that we're junk, but Microsoft has been known to make junk of our hard work!.).

It sounds like your scenery order is out of wack - (ORBX Central will do that to you! but so will FTX Central V3 if you don't have the insertion points correctly set. 

So to set your insertion points for either ORBX Central or FTX Central (which ever version you are running), go to settings, Insertion points and set the insertion points as follows: 

Orbx Airports and Regions) inserted below RTMM Libs.           (FTX entries placed below RTMM Libs)
Orbx Global openLC inserted below Tongass Lower priority.    (OpenLC entries placed below Tongass lower)

This is necessary to set the correct layering blocks.

Give it a try.

Welcome again and check your email when you have a chance. (I resent today).

Norm
