I believe we need to update the arrival location for Green Island Cabin. After arrival for flight MFC0231A it says I still have 516 miles to go.  Thanks!  Brian

Brad, I was just making sure it was in the instructions for MFC0005 Barnstormers as they have that airport as a tour stop on legs 6-7. I arrived and couldn't figure out where to land!  Brian

I think the documentation for MFC0005 Barnstormers needs to have Tezwa River Ranch (PF37) added to the download list.  Brian

To close the loop on this (and document for others)... Sue's recommendations greatly improved the U206G Soloy MK1. 

I had a second airplane install fail from Rikoooo and that got me searching for a fix.  I tried to install the Icon A5 and like the T206H Soloy Mark 2 it was not visible in P3D.  I determined it was installing files in the Program Files (x86) directory and not where my P3D primary installation is located.  Switching both the Icon A5 and the  T206H to MANUAL INSTALL and specifying my directory did the trick.  Brian

UPDATE 7/12/2019: There is only one change needed to the T206H by Thomas Roel to allow it to idle with floats in water with reverse props... change this setting setting in the aircraft.cfg

from: prop_reverse_available = 1.5
to: prop_reverse_available = 1

Misty Flying Club and Multi Player / Ham Island Marinia & Helipad
« on: December 30, 2018, 02:56:39 PM »
While flying the "2018 A Very Misty Christmas tour" (Tour MFC0025C) I noticed a significant marina and helipad on Ham Island just beyond Triangle Lake Hydro. It doesn't appear on my charts, Google Earth, or in our Google Earth KMZ. Is this Misty's Area 51? A yacht I can sail there? Did I miss a NOTAM? 55°11'33.35"N 131°23'7.44"W   55.192597° -131.385399°

At any rate, thanks for the present!


Prepar3D-Version 4 / CTD with MilViz DHC-2 Beaver in P3Dv4.4

The P3D 4.4 client update seems to cause a problem for MilViz aircraft that have the weather radar panel.  See:

I changed the entries in dll.xml and panel.cfg (in the folder and area for the specific model I fly) as suggested by this link on the MilViz forum and that seems to get around the problem.

If anyone needs more specific details on the fix, let me know.


Misty's Place / Thanks for making this a great place to hang out in 2018!

Here's my top-10 list of what I am thankful for in this hobby for 2018!

  • The RTMM community for all its dedication, creativity and support!
  • The launch of the Misty Flying Club
  • P3D - Why was I waiting? Oh yeah, a new computer. Thanks FSX for all the great years...
  • Linking the RTMM GO TO Table to MFC flight numbers!
  • All things ORBX
  • ActiveSky
  • ChasePlane - Amazing camera control inside and outside cockpit
  • TerraFlora
  • MilViz DHC-2 Beaver and Thomas Roehl's Cessna U206G Soloy MK1
  • Ultimate Traffic Live

Please chime in with your additions!

Happy New Year,

Thanks Dieter. I originally downloaded that model.  When I ran the installer it seemed to finish completely but no aircraft folders were created and the plane wasn't visible in P3D. The install for the U206G Soloy MK1 did work as expected.  I'll make the adjustments Sue suggested but would be interested in any install tips for the newer plane w/ reverse thrust too.  Brian

Help and Troubleshooting / Stopping the Cessna U206G Soloy MK1 on water?
« on: December 25, 2018, 11:11:20 AM »
I am having difficulty stopping the Cessna U206G Soloy MK1 on water (current Thomas Roehl version). Only thing that seems to work is killing the engine completely.  On the DHC2 I coast to a stop no problem but can keep engine running. Ideas? Brian

General Discussion / Re: Looking for a specific MM scenery...

I am thinking of a few spots in the Alaska Power Project... perhaps 7AK2 at Snettisham Hydro?  Brian

Great news! Thanks and Happy Holidays.  Brian

Ilya - Welcome! When I first started, it was overwhelming trying to decide where to go.  I decided to randomly work though the alphabet on the GoTo Table. I started with all flights beginning with certain letters and have only completed 5.5 letters!).  However, that's 166 flights so far and it has taken me to all parts of RTMM. I also joined the Misty Flying Club and that gives some alternative missions. I like doing both types of flights (RTMM & MFC)  through the club as that way I get "credit" for them all and it keeps track of my stats.

See what scenery you need in the table or the MFC tour guide and get that squared away first.  You don't need to download all RTMM scenery, just grab scenery as needed for each flight or tour and keep building your library. The USFS cabins and lighthouses are a great place to start.  Brian

I think we need an adjustment to this flight, MFC0221A 2Z1->TF20. Cigar Box says I am 87.57 miles from departure airport at start.  Thanks!  Brian

FYI I noticed one of the flights in the RTMM flight plans zip was not visible to P3D for loading.  After some troubleshooting, I determined a '&' in the DestinationName field of the PLN file was the culprit. It does not cause a problem in the filename, but rather within this specific field of the file contents.

Flight = Owikeno Casino & Resort (OCAR) from Owikeno N Strip (PF39)  -- aka MFC0445A

<DestinationName>Owikeno Casino & Resort</DestinationName>
<DestinationName>Owikeno Casino Resort</DestinationName>


Thanks Norm. Once again, close but no Cigar Box!  Brian
