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

Misty's Place / New ScruffyDuck Site
« on: December 23, 2019, 12:24:40 AM »
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.  ;)

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.   :)

Hello Erika,
     Welcome to RTMM's forum.  The presentation you are planning sounds great.  I agree with Brad that a flight yoke and rudder pedal system makes for a more pleasant experience for the patrons.  About my monitors.  I use triple monitors on my system for the immersion factor.  I can view the entire front window and left side window without turning my head.  Alternately, the center monitor could hold the simulator, while navigation maps could be displayed on the other monitors.  You would need a video card capable of displaying to three monitors.  The monitors should be identical to each other.  Mine are 42" Vizio LED type displays.  They run cool and are economical to use.  (rated at $13/yr electrical consumption each, I think).  I'd like to also mention my trim wheel accessory.  The trim wheel controls the fine tuning of the vertical movement in your plane.  Flying level is much easier to accomplish using one.
     I was wondering if the museum would be staffing the display?  That may keep users "in" the simulator, not surfing the web.  Just a thought.
