General Discussion / Re: Poll: What Sim do you use?
« on: July 03, 2020, 09:31:03 PM »
It's not me although I did sign up for the alpha 2020. I guess the had enough alphas.. but covid might have slowed the progress.

Speaking of alpha testers.. I guess they had bare bones alpha testers or none for that is except the end users: we were the guinea pigs that told LM what was wrong or what to fix.. .. and not even two weeks later hf1... It sure was
necessary then not even a month later hf2 to fix more!!

 Good sim now but no way 2 hot fixes should have been necessary to that initial release to get some serious issues rectified but anyways... directx12 provides much better graphics. But some terrain anomalies or variations to previous versions as some have found.

Welcome Tarsier.  Have fun and enjoy the trip.


Prepar3D-Version 5 / Re: P3D V5 - Layering Problem
« on: July 01, 2020, 08:57:09 PM »
Vector doesn't effect any of the elevations in P3DV5 at all. It isn't global. It's the P3Dv5 landclass or base layer s that gave affected this. Really the orbx products haven't changed much at all from v4 to v5.. but P3Dv5 sure has. it has new updated bases and terrain and updated elevation.

So the sim has changed.. hence there was no need or requirement to put elevation adjustments in orbx vector for P3Dv5 ( whereas is still is part of vector for P3Dv4x.

Ditto, will run the bwep next week.

Maybe te attached might help since a picture is worth a thousand words??

So these are the blocks.. now not sure if utx would conflict with orbx (if it covers the same area but if it is landclass then it would go in the openlc block or section.

That landclass (openlc) block goes right below tongass. (And tongass lower is set as the lower or bottom insertion point in orbx Central). Hope this makes sense.

Kronovan: Scenery order is very important.

RTMM stuff has to be positioned on top of the library while Tongass X (Higher over lower) has to be positioned in the gut of the order - right between ORBX Regions & airports and any Orbx OpenLC.

First establish your Orbx scenery blocks by using the Orbx Central insertion points.

TOP Insertion Point :  Orbx Regions and Airports - placed below  >> RTMM Libs.. (Which means all Orbx Regions and airport will stay in their block- right below the RTMM stuff. (And all RTMM stuff and any other 3rd party scenery will stay on top of the Orbx Regions and Airports Block.

The BOTTOM Insertion Point :  Orbx OpenLC - placed below  >> Tongass Lower.. (Which means all Orbx OpenLC entries will stay in their LC block- and positioned right below Tongass Lower and Tongass higher sits right above the Tongass Lower entry. 

So your blocks top down looks like:

RTMM (and any other 3rd party scenery) at the top
ORBX Regions and Airports
Tongass Higher
Tongass Lower
Open LC Entries
Default Named Continents & cities
Any Mesh
Vector Block (If you have vector)
Default Bases
Default scenery/terrain

All to say if you are flying in RTMM areas, your sim starter profile should have RTMM, Tongass, the respective Orbx Regions (and any Orbx airports if you have any for this area) should also be "on".

ORBX Regions:

    Ketchikan Area - "Pacific Fjords" (PFJ)
    Juneau to Anchorage Area - "Southern Alaska"(SAK)
    Vancouver and BC Area -"Pacific Northwest (PNW)

    Tongass Fjords - is in between "Pacific Fjords" (PFJ) and  "Southern Alaska"(SAK)

But in your profiles just make sure you maintain the scenery block order for correct layering so that your scenery will correctly display.


I guess this Joseph should be terminated. On report Trita.

Either way works just fine Karl. The freeware globals airports (pack) is only one scenery.cfg entry same as one xml and both are easy to turn either off or on in either method.

Ok Doug got it. just want to make sure that all the scenery pieces are right up to stuff as far as the add-on is concerned.

Yep. most work/display just fine so far. (Providing your scenery order is correct*!).

(*Correct scenery order means that ORBX Regions and Airports must be above any OpenLC entries (Top insertion point), and an ORBX Open LC or mesh must be in the OpenLC block- which is above the default scenery, default terrain and default bases). (Follow the conventional scenery order and layering and display should be fine).  (Haven't been to nearly enough yet but so far all visited display fine)

Sheemahant River Cabin - So I guess that is a replacement cabin that is in the scenery piece: Owikeno Lake Area (Refreshed 06.29.2020) ?

MFC0042 completed by MFC0019 on 6/28/2020

Weirder n' weirder finished at Sedona, landed park shut it down and the Cigar box says aircraft not landed, so after trying to decide should I refly or just try to reland at Sedona I did the latter and it worked, not sure what was going on with the Box

Yes Trip 42 is under your belt Jim. As far as Cigar Box is concerned, we are still having connection errors to the site (site issues), since the migration to the new server. Don't exactly know the cause right now but we are getting the odd glitch. You could have had a lost short connection issue. But glad if fixed.
The MFC0042 award has been added to your pilot's profile.


William Butler: MFC Pilot #0105 completed Tour MFC0023 Kodiak Island Run on 6/27/2020.


Aye William.. Your Kodiak trip has been completed and the award has been added to your growing list of awards!! Nice work.. Next up you'll be heading east back to the mainland!


General Discussion / Re: RTMM WayPoints Project
« on: June 29, 2020, 09:19:23 AM »
Autopilot up here in rugged bush country? Just can't do it.. no way!! Can't or realy should say don't want to use AP in these parts if you're actually flying and navigating the terrain!! AP might be fine if you're sleeping in a tube at FL360!!
Glad to see you have gotten some real stick time!! - is there any other way if you're flying low n slow bush?

There is also the csv spreadsheet files Dieter created and assembled for import right into Plan G (Dieter's Corner) mark most of the locations and poi for plan G.(Done a few years ago so a tad older and might be missing a few updated scenery locations but they work fine to show the locations).
Link: Dieter's Corner -

Tim Arnott at Plan G still has to update the program to be able to be able to load all the nav data for the P3Dv5 database but if Dieter's csv files are imported in Plan G, the RTMM points (and many POI for various areas around the world) are reflected.

Hopefully your RTMM waypoints piece(s) will mark the RTMM POI in Little NAV map which has already been updated for compatibility with P3Dv5x.
