Addon Scenery and Enhancements / Re: Ferry Aground?
« on: February 07, 2011, 08:14:41 PM »
What's strange on this one, and why I think it might be one of ours ... it wasn't there before I put in Yakhoun Lake ... I think I would have noticed it. I'm using the same routing for Mt Matlock Cabin and went over that spot about 5 times getting the Flight-Seeing trip laid out correctly. Then, there it is. :-).  But, hey, maybe one of Dex's ferries just took off and sailed away (one of them ran over me the other day as I was trying to take a pic of it!). Fun stuff, anyway.  Maybe if there's a fix, I won't even put it in .. I kind of like the Ferry Boat there.

Just put in Yakhoun Lake and was flying it. At one of my VFR turns I'm making over an island just off shore from Queen Charlotte City ... lookee what I found washed up on the island?  (Hey Dex, you missing a ferry boat?) :-)

On the Scenery Page under Aiken Creek and Nisga'a ... just above the "zip" button.

We've now got TWO videos posted.  Both are landings for a specific location. I linked both of them there (One is Aiken Creek, the other is Nisga'a .  When you folks take the time and effort to do these for our locations, I'll be happy to post them.  When we get enough of them, I'll put a section on the Gallery Page just below the pictures and list each of them. But that's a "back burner" at the moment. 

Anyway, if I've "missed" a video, let me know and give me the link. When you have a new one, give me a heads up so I don't miss it.  These are a great addition and are much appreciated.

Aaaron ... I put a link up for your video at the Scenery location for it. Great video ... nice landing too!  I'm still coming down through the sceneries ... slowly, making the trip tics, etc. So I hadn't seen this one yet ... that was fun and a great preview ... I may have to skip ahead and try that one sooner than later!  Thanks for the video.

Please folks, run the test with Brad's new testing tool.  Look at the results I got!  I didn't know I was missing anything.  Look at my results vs what SHOULD be there.  Please take the time to run the tool. Simple to use ... 5 minutes max!  So this tells me I'm missing OZx and Tongass Fjords. (The two objects on the right are not there).  This is a great tool to run.

Go to the FAQ page at RTMM and click on "S" to get it.

I love that startup sound when the Microsoft Beaver starts up ... man you KNOW you are sitting on an engine!

That one was "tough" for the Trip Tic because when you hit BC, FSDiscover just quits. There's nothing named there, so waypoints can't be "named."  I did find a pretty neat map that helps, and I'm going to go back into it today, hopefully I can find some names of some of those rivers and waterways back in there where some of the turns are made. I put the new map (interactive) in the Map Room (Canada Topo Maps ... in this case, click on BC, then zoom in). 

I'm pretty close to going to Rand McNally and just buying one of their big maps of the area and putting it on my office wall.  I ran into a similar problem going to Forrester Island ... nothing is named past the Prince of Wales Island.  Part of knowing the name, then you can Google it and learn about "it" and the area surrounding it.  Some folks won't/don't care so this stuff isn't for them, but others would like to know the name of the mountain and that there was a plane wreck on the side of it in 1945. 

I'm finding "history" up that way is like "gold."  You know its there, but finding it can be difficult.  If anyone comes up with good maps of the area  ... not the Google Earth stuff (it has NO NAMES) ... but good maps with names ... please let me know and I'll post them.

If you look at the "hangar" page at the old Misty site (http://www.mistymoorings.com) ... you'll see we even had a glider with a Misty repaint.  That was fun taking off from Deer Mountain. For those who couldn't figure out the thermals, it was a nice easy flight to PAKT to land.  I guess it didn't quite fit in this time.

Hey , want to have some fun? If you haven't tried Khutzeymateen River Bear Lodge yet ... then you've got a treat in store. This was a tough one to do for VFR ... there are no way points in British Columbia for FSDiscover ... so this one is pure "visual" guiding you through some beautiful mountains to a very special location. If you'd just like for the "virtual pilot" to fly it, download the Flight-Seeing Plan and fly the autopilot at 1200 feet (yes you will have a couple of pine branches on the port wing, but you can scrape them off when you land). And when you land ... look around ... there are "things" out there runnin' around.  Enjoy!

YES!!! I like the "BIG" float ... do ya think we could get that in Misty Colors?  (Tell you what, that would be fun on a Flight-Seeing Tour! ... into the mountain at the first left) ... next time you jus fly through the tunnel it made in Holger's scenery! :-)

Did you guys see that new Tool Brad has made for us? The Scenery Object Tester?  It's under "S" on the FAQ page ... pretty neat idea.
