UPDATE for Part IV Objects Library and NAC locations ...

1. The new RTMM Required  FSXP3D Libraries Part IV_3.21.19 resolves a few minor texture issues. Delete the previous RTMM Required  FSXP3D Libraries Part IV file and replace with the new one. There is no need to do anything else with the new version. Again, this version only addresses some texture issues.

2. You should also redownload NAC Bases and NAC Kipoix River. The windsock problem mentioned on the forum has now been fixed.

Ocean Falls Updated 04.03.2019

The two lodges were above the ground. They have now been moved back where they are all on solid footing. If you click on the "Refreshed ...date" link, there will be a text file that comes up to always tell you the reason for the update.

RTMM Missing Cabins - Update! (Juneau-Kenai Area now present with season switcher)

Somehow the Juneau-Kenai Area missing cabins were left out of the season switcher 2019 update. That has now been fixed. All of the cabins are there and with season switcher. This group can show some winter/some fall in Feb and March depending upon latitude. There is about a 490 mile span between the north and south borders of this cabin district.

Doug's Outfitters - Season Switcher Added

Doug's Outfitters is now a Season Switcher scenery location. If you have the previous version, you will want to delete it and add this new one in its place.  Don't forget, this one has the main lodge out on the river, but there is an airstrip (PF29) back at the "lakes end". There is also a beautiful "river run" if you want to go from the lodge to the airstrip. Great for the boaters among us.

Dora Bay LTF - Minor Modifications Update

A missing pier was added to the commuter boat dock area. Also, Rod Jackson's whitewater effects and trailers were added to the tug boats, barges and log rafts giving them the appearance of motion.

REMEMBER: You can always click on the "Refreshed/Update" date ... I am making those links to let you know what changes were made.

NEW - Maintenance reports (Modified post 04.09.2019)
Each scenery location on the Scenery Page now has its own maintenance log. When you click on the Refreshed/Added/Updated date ... it is now a hot link to the maintenance log for that location. When you are ready to download a location, you can check the log to see what has been done to the location and when it happened.  After each entry is a "...by" with a name. That is the person who made the change.

Often people flying RTMM will find something that needs to be fixed. When these show up in the forum, we go after them and fix them. Any fix like this will now be documented. Notice the example for Yes Bay Lodge below.

UPDATED: RTMM Required Library Part IV

"RTMM Required  FSXP3D Libraries Part IV 4.15.19 is now available for download. This update fixes a few minor problems that have been discovered. Please delete any previous version of the RTMM Required  FSXP3D Libraries Part IV that you may already have. I also discovered an orphaned effect file "hiding" in several of the CIRP scenery folders and have added it to the Effects\ Universal Effects folder. Copy all of the files contained in this folder to your main Effects folder and overwrite when prompted. This will insure that you have all of the necessary RTMM effect files.

Link Here

Updated FedEx Terminal for PAKT PAYware!

Brad has updated the FedEx Terminals package that updates the FedEx Terminal at the PAYWARE PAKT. (This update is for PAYWARE PAKT only ... if you have the ORBX original PAKT, there is no need to re-download and install).

NEW REPAINT by Klaus - Nemeth Designs Aerospatiale AS350B3

This is a repaint for the Nemeth Designs Aerospatiale As350B3 payware helicopter-addon for FSX and P3d. The paint is also compatible with Nemeth Designs payware Expansion Pack for the AS350 which provides more variants. This repaint represents the fictitious Aerospatiale AS350B3 N350MM mistyASTAR of Return to Misty Moorings. (This is a very large file to download for all the variations ... a long file means a TREMENDOUS amount of time put into this by the author...thank you Klaus!) Look for it at: Enhancements / Repaints / Helicopters ... and the bottom of the table.

"Version.txt" and "Maintenance Logs" ....

As a part of REFRESH 2019, we are adding a couple of things you might not notice. When you download a scenery folder from RTMM now, inside the /scenery folder of the folder you put into your addon area is a tiny "version.txt" file. You will find it in with the bgl files.  As we standardize on location NAMES ... we are getting rid of the "version number" and other misc entries that have been a part of the name. We do this so when you download an update, the folder will be titled something like (example) Misty's Place ... (Not Misty's Place PF20 or Misty's Place Version 4.0 ... just Misty's Place). All you then have to do is delete the old Misty's Place folder and replace it with the new and not have to redirect your Scenery Library to find a new name. But it doing this, you lose the ability to know which version you have. Now you will know. If you go to the /scenery file (where the bgl files reside) you'll find the version.txt. Click on it and the date of the location update and version are always there for you.  This is now in every RTMM scenery download.

Also, all of the maintenance logs are now installed on ALL scenery locations. If you click on the REFRESHED DATE link at the top of each locations entry box, that link opens the maintenance log for that scenery location. So if you see there's an update, if you click on the link, you will see what we updated, when it was updated, and who did the update.

Both of these new features are installed and "up" on the server.

New: CIRP Bromley Peak AI Traffic V2.1_3.zip
New: RTMM Automated Dispatches 06.06.2019


Two new files for you to update your Scenery Libraries ...

Rod Jackson and Dex Thomas have done some updating on the Bromley Peak AI Traffic file. Both flights will now do touch and go's .  The 1800 hour flight will do them for 20 minutes and the 2200 hour flight (changed from 2300) will do them for 40 minutes. In this download's /scenery folder is: Traffic_RTMM_PF43.bgl  ... This should be placed in the "CIRP Ice Stations/Scenery" folder.

The M031 (Misty's Place) reception area had some missing and floating objects. There is a new RTMM Automated Dispatches file you can download from the Here2There page/Dispatches. This fixes the floating and missing objects for the Misty's Place reception area (used when the RTMM Automated Dispatcher is "on").

Site Maintenance Log

There is now a "site maintenance log" you can view to see the changes and updates we are making on the site. LINK. When RED text is showing, that indicates a redownload is necessary on that item. Often people will let us know of a broken link, typo, etc. You will be able to track that we are fixing those for you by watching the log.

As we do the REFRESH 2019 ... there will be a lot of this kind of activity and it can be confusing our our users. "Bear" with us ... we apologize for the updates, but when finished the site will run much smoother. We DO APPRECIATE it when you folks let us know there is a problem. With the links and cross-links on the page, it is like a Chinese puzzle with many moving parts. So your alertness in spotting a problem is always welcome.

RTMM Automated Dispatches ... (Medical Dispatches Updated)

We have done a great deal of work refreshing and updating the Medical Dispatches in the RTMM Automated Dispatches.zip.  There are a couple of parts to this. From the Medical Facilities Page, you should download and install the RTMM Medical Facilities.zip ... it can be found HERE. That puts all of the medical clinics/hospitals and docks into your scenery. You add it like any other scenery program ... it adds 35 locations.

Next, redownload the latest RTMM Automated Dispatches.zip 06.13.2019 ... this has all the changes we have made in the dispatches for the Medical Facilities. (Don't forget, this also holds dispatches for BWEP ... but we have not altered anything in BWEP at this time).

Changes: We've taken OUT the red flashing buoys that helped you find the medical reception areas. These have been replaced with a man in an orange suit holding the orange smoke flare. This is only used at the medical docks (not hospitals or airports). At the airports, we have placed 3 red flashing lights on the roof of the building where the medical people are waiting for you ... this will help you find the location at a busy airport. 

We had added a new Dispatch (Stikine #3) and will continue to add them. When we add them, you will see a NOTAM and the date on the RTMM Automated Dispatches.zip will change. We have several facilities that do not have dispatches to them, we are working on those.

If you have a hidden talent of playing with scenery, the Medical Facilities page, at the bottom, has a "how to make a dispatch" area. It is not for the novices, but if you have some experience in this area and want to try one of these, let me know and I'll help you through the process the first time.

The Medical dispatches are unique in that they only give a way point for the emergency (which can be ANYWHERE). You have to figure out how to get to the way point. In our flying area, the weather may limit your altitude (you may want to stay below the clouds), which means a direct flight to the way point will put you into the first mountain you encounter. So you have to dodge around the mountains using the terrain feature on your gps. It is a different kind of flying, and can be a real challenge.

Kodiak Island Airfields by Thomas Menzel  -  NEW SCENERY LOCATION(s)
Added 06.19.2019

This package presents an additional scenery set to the MFC0023 Flight in Misty Flying Club where the default sceneries are very rare. The scenarios are outside of ORBX SAK region and only ORBX landclass, Global,and Vector are present. These sceneries makes the trip maybe more enjoyable, "From Here to There" ... flying from location to location..." These are partly "simple", partly more complex sceneries, this will make take offs and landings more interesting for the MFC tours.

Note from Doug: This is a beautiful area to fly and the locations Tomse has put in are very well-done. He has added scenery for 16 separate locations all around the coast of the island.
