Owikeno Trip Tic by Doug Linn
« on: March 01, 2015, 05:03:41 PM »
TeeCee and I had a lot of fun this morning flying this Trip Tic. We had been working for quite some time getting Prepar3Dv2.5 installed along with Tongass Fjords, ORBX scenery and all the RTMM libraries and sceneries. But it was well worth it. My old weak Dell computer, 4 years old, ran like a charm producing 20 fps out of max 20 fps on most of the flight with mist, water falls, and all the wonderful RTMM scenery installed. Looked great. Mountains, glaciers, water, rocks, all really fine! Could not say enough about how pleased we were with all of it. Owikeno Lake and that area will be fun to explore for some time to come. Thanks to all with RTMM who had something to do with producing this fantastic area. Just great!

Those take a lot of time to do. Each is actually a little web page.  I thoroughly enjoy making them, and with the tour guide information i get to learn a lot along the way myself.  I really miss FSDiscover, I could literally call the turns by name and add so much more history. Once you know the name of what you are looking at, you can "look it up." There is a program called MyTopo that will give you excellent REAL maps with real names. I'm now having to rely on that for this information. The new V3 trip tic gives you a little picture for each critical turn...more fun for the VFR folks. They will be able to look for what is shown on the picture. I'm glad you are enjoying them. Owikeeno is the most complicated one I did.
