Just a quick qestion about the tours.
Can't you open the weather (at least in FSX) and set 'clear weather'?

Thanks for the confirmation  on the old files not being needed.  I had not removed them until I determined if the new scenery worked or not.  I have disabled them in the FSX scenery library and the new files work grest.  I'l now remove the CIRP files from the sim.

Got a few minutes to spare and like a bit of WWII history?  Here's a link to the story of Maj. Greg Boyington commander of VF214, better known as "The Black Sheep"

He had 26 'kills' tying Eddie Rickenbacker Of WWI fame.  He grew up in St. Mary's ID and I was aware of his story since I was youngster in Elk River, ID only about 65 miles away.  In some ways he inspired my desire to become a Naval Aviator.

both the old and new SIRP scenery are in the Scenery page.  I tried installing the new SIRP v3 and scewed up my sim quite a bit. Don't know it its because of both versions being in my scenery library or what.  Disabled the old version in the library but it didn't clear up my problems.  Any advice:

FWIW ORBX released software noted in jsapair's post.  Open LC North America Alaska/Canada which was a partially completed LC offering that ORBX released a final version of that included a discount IF you had bought the incomplete version previously.  Lots of gripes about the process at the time.
Of course the FSS was basically pushed aside by ORBX when FTX Central was released and you had to transfer all your FSS stuff using the new Central.

General Discussion / Re: Cabins by the Lakes confusion??
« on: April 18, 2018, 01:05:42 PM »
Doug, Norm,
you know that I don't combine anything concerning scenery so that not a worry.  I'm sitll not clear about the subject scenery however.  As of now I'm leaning toward the fact that there should be 2, two, dose, a couple, pair of Cabins by the Lakes in my FSX scenery library.  The Scenery down load page has two separate downloads 1) Cabins by the Lakes (updated 04.06.2018) and
               2) Cabins by the Lakes II (add 04.04. 2018)
I'm assuming this is correct and deleting the 3rd entry in my FSX scenery library.  I only have it because I couldn't determine if the newest CBL and the updated CBL were additional to the original but the answers I see indicate that only 2 CBL sceneries exist not 3.

I have named the two files Cabins by the Lakes I
                                     Cabins by the Lakes II
To avoid confusion in my mind.

General Discussion / Cabins by the lake confusion??

OK trying to get caught up (again) with latest scenery for RTMM.  Cabins by the Lake has me fibberdigibbit!
At present I believe there are now 3 Cabins by the Lake in our scenery.  The dialog for the latest CBL says Brad's latest effort is V1.0 I'm confused if it is the same files as the original CBL with added cabins or completely new cabins scenery.  Therefore at present I have the original CBL, CBL V1 and CBL V2 in my scenery library.  Is this correct or does Brad's latest (V1) supersede the original CBL completely??

Not at all.  ORBX scenery files "have to be" below all third party scenery.  Move the Fairbanks files 'above' the ORBX scenery in your FSX Scenery Library.  If your talking about P3D I defer to someone who uses that sim as I'm an old diehard FSX man!
