Thanks Spud, Jerry & Draghorn for your replies.  I have been using TS3 with my other flying community for a while and familiar with it. Way better than TS2 in terms of stability, clarity and features and is useful for flight training/seminars, weekend fly-ins, sharing of ideas, quick Q&As, set-up troubleshooting and of course, more personalized social interaction..for those who are interested.

Hi guys,

I visited DTP's TS3 chatrooms recently and can't find "Misty's Lounge" (or maybe I just overlooked it). I also downloaded and installed the TS2 per RTMM instruction but got an error prompt when trying to connect.

 Are the RTMM multiplayer FSHost and/or Teamspeak servers still currently active? Just wondering. Thanks!

Misty's Place / Re: 3rd Visit to Misty's Place

Hope it made you LOL Jerry  ;) I read that most RTMM scenery downloads, dispatches, trip tics, missions, etc. have some interesting story line behind it so I though why not add an imaginary zest to the usual regimen of a virtual bush pilot?

Anyway, my recent misadventure did not end there...  I wanted to try the equally famous poached salmon sandwich, another popular fare at Misty's Bar & Grill recommended by a Twin Otter bush pilot I met at PAKT. Upon seeing the same scenario late today at Misty's airfield while I was already in the traffic pattern, I told myself "Oh no, not again!" So I landed my Jet Ranger 206 on a barrier clearing nearby and swam about 150 feet or so across thinking that I won't disturb or get complaints from Misty's customers and other pilots like I did the last time. Fortunately, I made it across though at a cost of getting a mild hypothermia after being drenched and shivering from the "freezing" inlet water. To cut it short, Misty's granddaughter, who was manning their bar that night offered that I could eat any of the bar's menu offering "on the house", stay overnight at their family cottage's guest room since the nearby cottages are fully booked and use their home washer and dryer for my wet flightsuit. Cool!  :D

As Albert Einstein used to quote, "Imagination is more important than knowledge." (but not necessarily true in real world bush flying...)

Misty's Place / 3rd Visit to Misty's Place

Just imported this off-topic, fictional post from another since it's related to Misty's Place and I can't help share what happened (in my imagination) for what's it worth:

The other day, I was on my last flight leg from Stewart to Ketchikan with my 412 around dusk. Tired and hungry from the VFR tour flights all day, I had to find a nice place to stretch and grub out. I thought why not fly to the famous Misty's bar and grill nearby for a nice halibut sandwich and a bottle of Bud Light the third time around?

While I was about to enter the TPA on the 45 and scanning below, I noticed that  Misty's airfield and docks were full of parked Kodiak amphibians, Beavers and Cessna float planes. With my bird having no floaters and low on fuel, there is no way I could fly around and wait for a while until someone flies out and frees a parking or landing space.. I got to have that halibut sandwich!

Then I saw a small clearing about a stone throw's away at the back of Misty's hangout and beside her cottage. I decided why not land here? I went for it and had to perform a tight LZ maneuver careful enough not to  mow or trim nearby trees and foliage with my rotor blades. Both Misty's cottage and the bar rattled with my rotorwash as I settled down but I didn't notice anything got damaged or blown away, I think... Before I could finish my shutdown procedures, Misty's daughter (or granddaughter, I'm not sure since it was dark) and some customers rushed out wondering what the heck was causing the earth-shaking, thunderous sound that was sooo close... Bad choice for a landing spot but I apologized for scaring them and promised that next time I'll bring along a cooler with a six-pack, some energy bars and land somewhere-maybe a passing cruise ship with a helipad  :P

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for the reply. I'll try to find and go through it and let you know if it can address my concerns. It might take a while since I'm new to FSX boats... Otherwise, I'll post here my experience and other questions, if any.

By the way since were discussing about boats here, would you happen to know if there's a SUMMARIZED list of group or individual schedules, routes for all AI vessels (boats, ships, landcraft, etc. ) enhancements here in RTMM? If so, what are these specific add-ons, payware needed in order for these AI objects to be seen or to work properly? I already asked a similar question in my other post but thought you may be able to shed some light on it. Thanks again.

Hi everyone,

I just installed all 3 boats (FSX Air Boat, Riva Aquarama and Deltasim Sirocco LT) and the Nav Stack downloaded from RTMM's The Marina. I also added the Sirocco GTX and GTX2 from Deltasim's freewares to my fleet. But I didn't find any Read Me file or specific instructions on how to install the separate Sirocco GTX Autopilot and it appears that the config is for a GTX2 (not GTX) after extracting its ZIP file.  I also noticed there's an aircraft.cfg and panel.cfg along with it which when I opened indicated to be for the Sirocco GTX2 was not among the 3 boat models I got from The Marina. Too add to the confusion, I found out that the default autopilot config entries for my GTX2's aircraft.cfg and panel.cfg files differ slightly from that in the Sirocco GTX autopilot ZIP extracted file entry after comparing both. I hope you guys can clarify and help out on this issue. Got some questions:

1) Will the autopilot and/or nav stack work for all or just some of these boats?

2) Does anyone know how to properly install and configure the autopilot feature to work for these 5 boats I installed?

Any tips/advice are appreciated. Thanks!

Yeah, sounds like a nice bunch considering the number of welcomes already  :) Thanks again to the recent welcomers! Also to Klaus and Spud for the quick tips. 

(EDITED: Off-topic exported to appropriate Misty's forum thread)

By the way, could anyone direct me to where I could find AI flight or sailing schedules, if any, for both RTMM and CIRP sceneries (except the AI shipping project which I haven't installed yet)?
Thanks again.

Thanks for your welcoming remarks guys! It's well appreciated. I would certainly visit Misty's Place more often-better if there is a designated/marked helipad whether on the ground or raised or floating anywhere nearby just in case Misty's airfield is packed with parked amphibians or wheeled regulars on any busy day so I can also land any of my helos and maybe take some locals or visitors for a free quick tour around the area  ;D

By the way, congrats for a very extensive collection of sceneries and other goodies to make the experience here more immersive!

Greetings gentlemen,

It's nice to finally sign-up here. I primarily fly rotorcraft and occasionally GA fixed wing and now also becoming more interested in amphibians/float planes.

Your site is simply impressive and awesome! Probably one of the best flight sim sites I came across recently. Hoping for years of exciting adventures, discoveries and better appreciation of the scenic beauty of your covered regions through aviation and navigation in the virtual world.

Kudos for the great work and always keep the bar high in making the experience "as real as it gets"! 8)

Bravo Zulu,
