Hi,

After getting the RealAir Scout, I decided it was finally time for
some new scenery to fly over and into with the new plane, and so
naturally, Holger Sandmann's "Misty Fjords" (from FSAddon) was first
on the list.

I flew a few short hops around the new scenery in the amphibian
version of the Scout, and found myself in simulated bush pilot
paradise! :-) Now I'm downloading all sorts of stuff from the "Misty
Moorings" site. I'm going to enjoy some flying tonight! :-)

And I haven't forgotten my new Spitfire either. Dudley will be happy
to know that the maiden flight of the Spitfire was a success, and
Varmit should know that there was no "lawn dart" landing! :-Þ In
fact, I'm happy to say that all three "first landings" with this
plane were quite smooth. This is a fast little plane! :-)

Speaking of "lawn dart", I'm thinking that I should now learn to
create liveries for my planes with "Lawn Dart" tastefully painted on
them. Could someone please point me in the direction of what I need
to accomplish this? Thanks!

Anyone who can handle a Kayak in rough water will enjoy the Spitfire I'm
sure. In fact, I'm not so sure I could manage a Kayak in rough
water...........well, maybe in smooth water............well, in the bathtub
maybe?

Join us anytime for some Misty Multiplayer Flying. We explore that
entire area of Alaska and sometimes branch out to the Ultimate Terrain
Canada/Alaska scenery as well. Aircraft include the Grumman Goose,
Scout, Beavers, and pretty much anything else that can fly on short
runways and land on the water. Get a Key for Misty's Place and
there will be many posts there on that forum, on all the add-ons,
etc..., which is in addition to the Misty Fjords Site.

I've been downloading all sorts of things from Misty Moorings
(including the Misty's Place key), and now I've installed Ultimate
Terrain CA/AK now as well! (along with the compatibility patch). The
screen shots looked so great, I just couldn't resist. It's the
perfect compliment to Misty Fjords!

It looks like I'll be spending much of the rest of the evening
installing all these other little things I've been downloading. By
tomorrow, I should have an all new Alaska and Canada! :-)

I haven't tried any multi-player flights yet, but it sounds like it
could be fun in this lovely bush flying environment. I'll think
about it. For now, I'm just going to explore a bit to see what's
around.

Thanks!

I seem to have come across a problem or two. After installing
Ultimate Terrain for Canada and Alaska, then the v2 patch for
compatibility with Misty Fjords, I'm seeing some peculiar shoreline
anomalies.

I took off from Wrangell airfield (PAWG), in Ultimate Terrain
territory just north of the border between the Ultimate Terrain and
Misty Fjords sceneries. In the UT areas, there's a consistent
shoreline problem, as seen here:

http://tinyurl.com/ad42j

Here I am flying south across the border between UT territory and
Misty Fjords (you can see where the UT shoreline problem ends):

http://tinyurl.com/8vnd5

And then, when I'm in Misty Fjords, there's another type of shoreline
anomaly:

http://tinyurl.com/a25wv

http://tinyurl.com/b5ljo

Can someone tell me what I can do to fix these two problems?

And finally, here are a couple of pictures just for the fun of it:

There is a problem with two scenery add ons that I have called
Glacier Bay 1 and 2 . When I turn on Glacier Bay with my FS9 scenery
manager, I get the weird shorelines in places between Misty's Place
and Juneau, for instance. Disabling Glacier Bay , removes the
double shorelines. There are a small number of areas that still need
patches to work perfectly with UT, and that is what you may be
getting, but I am not sure Wrangell is included. I would suggest
posting this question on the Misty Moorings Forum, and Holdger will
answer it for you very quickly and explain what may be the problem and
how to resolve it.

By the way, I like the last 2 screen shot.s Typical of Misty, and
there are tons more things to see.

Here is one of my favorite planes to fly at Misty's, besides the Scout
and Beaver

Thanks. I did post the question to the forum, and this morning,
Holger replied. He did indeed suggest that I disable the Glacier Bay
1&2 sceneries to resolve the UT area shoreline anomalies. As for the
other type of shoreline strangeness I see within the Misty Fjords
scenery, he explained that as well, but it may take a bit more
investigation and tweaking for me to get the most out "fixing" that,
as it has to do with the type of landclass I've been using for the
area. I'll be asking Holger more questions about that when I get a
chance today.

Thanks again for your help!

I've definitely discovered the joys of hardware upgrading, even though
it wasn't the cheapest thing to do. And of course, with the machine
now able to take more, I've been feeding it more, which means even
more expense, and now, I'm even back to being careful with my
settings so that it doesn't slip back into "slide show" mode.

I've said this before, and I'll say it again; I had no idea what I was
getting myself into when, on a lark, I spent a mere $100 for the
basic fs9 program and a joystick. I've since spent more than $1500
for hardware upgrades, controllers, and payware add-ons! All this
just to feed my addiction to this interesting, fun, and indeed,
educational bit of virtual recreation. Eek!

Warning: That innocent looking little tin on the store shelf is just
the beginning of a long and slippery slope! :-)

You're now officially one of us!


In 1996 my then girlfriend (now wife) and I spent about $400 each for a
windsurfer. We thought what a fun little thing to do in the summer. :-)

We now have $13 thousand dollars worth of windsurfing gear in the garage.

I really think you should get into RC flying too! I started out thinking -
hey, what the heck, maybe $300, $400 max for something simple and a few
yuks........
In eight months it's passed the $3K mark, and that's NOT counting the wifes

One for each foot... :-)

The big one on top is more like a sailboat with a centerboard. It's good
for putzing around in light wind. Then from wind speeds of about 16 mph on
up you need a different board and sail for every additional 6 mph of wind.
You never know what you are going to need till you get there so you have to
take all your junk on every trip.

Thusly, the surprise in what you thought was a cheap pastime becoming out of
control.
