Help and Troubleshooting / Re: Using FTX Central for ORBX scenery for FSX
« on: January 06, 2017, 08:56:58 PM »
Back at the troubleshooting... so some progress.  The RTMM object test is now working again.  That scenery file was indeed pointing to the wrong location.  However, I do not believe I am seeing anything new from ORBX.  I am at PANT and PAKT and not seeing the ORBX NA Pacific Fjords scenery.  Those files are pointed to the right location in the scenery library.  I have rebooted the computer and made sure FTX Central is not running.  So I'll move on now to diagnose ORBX scenery.  Any good locations you would suggest where I will really see that scenery pop and know if it is working (like the RTMM object test)?

Not sure what's happening now...  While last night (pre-ORBX), the RTMM Scenery Tester was working.  Today, all those objects are gone.  I am setting insertion point below the RTMM Two as shown below.  I am not convinced the new ORBX scenery is visible OR the RTMM goodies I installed last night. See anything unusual here?

Ok, that tip with FTX helps.  I was leaving it running and not letting it handle things.  I have the insertion point set and am trying to get the scenery back in sequence.  Stay tuned!  Brian

Help and Troubleshooting / Using FTX Central for ORBX scenery for FSX
« on: January 05, 2017, 10:37:52 PM »
I am trying to install the ORBX scenery.  I have the FTX Central app running and appear to have downloaded and "installed" the files, i.e. it created an ORBX folder in my FSX directory.  However when I launched FSX, the scenery was not in the list (like the other RTMM files I added yesterday using the FSX scenery library tool).  So I added the new ORBX scenery like I normally would.  Was that a mistake and does FTX somehow manage it and not reveal the files in scenery library?  Also are the ORBX Libraries required (they are downloading now).

Reason I think there is a problem is I went to an airport near PAKT and two seaports I tried were on land, had grass, trees and cars driving near me!

Thanks in advance for your guidance. Brian

Screenshots / Thank you! Made my first landing at Misty's Place

Just joined RTMM today and after about 4 hours loading all the files and following your incredible documentation, I made my first landing at Misty's Place. 

I had been a long time Snow Dog Tours pilot and just started flying again after a ~5 year hiatus.  Got the Aerosoft DHC-2 Beaver and, wow, do you appear to have taken Alaska to a whole new level!  Many thanks for all the work put into this project.
