Not necessarily. Turn off pieces to be able to isolate the cause of the boat bouncing. If you turn off and all is ok, then the problem is with one your turned off pieces. So then re-add theose OFF pieces on by one until you find the culprit- then you know which one is causing the problem (and maybe it can be fixed).

Thank you Norm.  I will follow your advice and close out after each flight.  BTW I noticed you used a beaver on a tour awhile back.  Did you revert to v4.5 to fly it or do you have a beaver that will work in v5 and 5.1?

An old beaver with custom panel so that it has working gauges.. The Milviz doesn't work in V5.. the old Aerosoft works after a tedious rebuilding of a custom panel to fix missing gauges.

(Panel Merge info at Simouthouse:

Panel LINK: eId=53172


A.F.Scrub (Simvation) has a Turbo beaver that works in V5: (Panel not so great but workable).

I am showing two pireps for 01mt to cysw.  My last flight was cysw-cybw.  The tour list shows me completing the cysw-cybw and shows me at cybw.  I think what happened was the flight timed out at cysw and I forgot to clear flight data and refresh before downloading the cysw-cybw leg.  Consequently it logged 01mt-cysw again.  Can you fix that Norm or do I need to fly the last leg again?  Jim Smith MFC0010

Firstly, with the sluggish connection and time outs between the site and cigar box (which seems to be an ongoing needle in the haystack server issue, always best to close the box after each flight so when Cigar Box is restarted forces a new connection- which draws the latest information from the site. Ie: next leg info and dumps holding on to the previous leg info. 

I don't even leave cigar box on after a flight. As soon as I file the pirep in cigar box, I check the site for my pirep (only takes 2 secs to file). Once I see the pirep, I close cigar box. So no waiting for time out. Just close it.  (If you're going to fly the next leg, your already at the site to bid the next leg. Once bid done, open up cigar box, wait for full connection and GET Flight and it will draw the correct flight.

Now to your pireps:  I fixed up that 2nd pirep to read cysw-cybw and that seems to have updated the leg on Tour 49 status - so your next flight should now be Leg 5 - CYBW Springbank to CEJ4 Claresholm Industrial.


On it Zoo!

Flying boats?  No no you can't have flying boats! That is Terrain issues..

P3Dv4.5 Tongass "boats".. Thinking.. hmmm..  Did you update the required entries in the terrain.cfg file?

(The required 40 Tongass Terrain.cfg entries for use in P3Dv4+ are appended/attached to this post.)


Once the terrain.cfg file is done/saved. (Sim off)

1. Delete the shaders folder >
Path >> C:\Users\your name\AppData\Local\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Shaders

2. Delete the simobjects folder >
Path >> C:\Users\your name\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\SimObjects 

3. The sceneryindexes64 folder >
Path >> C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\SceneryIndexes_x64

That should fix Tongass on the sim's next start up.

PS: Also for Tongass: did you update the AI models? >    (This saves CTD as the original models in Tongass are non-com[patible with P3Dv4x But Rod Jackson fifxed them all up to FSX Native/compatible with P3Dv4x and above).

Hope this cures your Tongass problem(s).

Hmmm.. will check to make sure I didn't mess something up.. lol. The server is very slow and connection from the site to cigar box is very slow.. (just have to wait it out).

(Nothing messed up, just very slow connections).
